Just a heads up. The hard part of that Advanced lead is around 8, but it is so short, that 99 should be possible even without nailing that part.

 

Oh and good work @@Toni-Wan Kenobi!

 

Yup - we make it a 7 overall.

Yep. Just tell which difficulty class do you reckon you belong to. Judging by your scores, masterclass might be the right place for you. (It's definitely advanced or masterclass)

 

And welcome! You can also enter to lead guitar and rhythm guitar songs and have separate difficulty ranking in each class.

The tone on the song of the Ataris is really cool. And La Bamba is a really cool song to play. Surely not the standard we are used to play.

I hate drop D super lights get so dang floppy lol, but since I don't want to skip a week I now have a B string on as my E so next time I try to play this it should work better. It does tune up to E too so I think this is how I'm going to start setting my bass up, B (as an E) A D G C. Just don't ask me to bend the massive  B string when it's tuned to E please lol.

 

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1623205287 I really like this song it's a fun one.

 

Also, welcome to the championships @@SamcroMike

I'm laid low with the stomach flu, but I have to keep my RS streak alive.  Day 308, I played bass sitting on the floor.

 

Not very good...

Not as much moving in this one, much better.

Hopefully I'll feel better soon and provide some competition.

Hi,

 

Am I the only one to notice that the bass does not correspond to what is being played in La Bamba? According to the DLC, only Cs and Gs are played at the beginning however I hear a much more melodic bass line.

 

L

I find it hard tell with that excessive fuzz on the tone.  That tone might be fine for death metal with Cookie Monster vocals, but it's totally over the top on La Bamba.  I'll give it another listen and try to get past the tone

 

La Bamba on bass = 100%

 

Boys of Summer on bass = 100%

 

Edit - @@lduperval you are correct.  The actual bass line is more melodic and slightly different each time through the V of the I-IV-V.

I hate you all, I'm still complete crap after a year. lol

 

Before I bought my bass, I played bass tracks with bass emulation on and was placed to advanced class. Then I bought my bass and I realised it's actually slightly harder instrument (well some are considerably harder, some are a lot easier), but I just simply decided that it has no effect on my skill level portrayed by weekly championship. (My intention there is not to sound douchy!)
