Starting runs on guitar...better late than never

Better than my 89% last time.  I remember the trick is to mute all the strings in between the yellow and green string like a badly done bar chord.  It comes easy as my bar chords are always done badly :)

At the start of this song I was like "This is easy!"  Then it all fell apart.  How can such a laid back song be so hard to keep up with!?

I usually struggle with the Beatles, so this was a nice surprise.

Yep, still don't belong in advanced rhythm.

Hmmmm...this is easier than I expected.  Maybe it is more of a 7?

Good test of fret hand finger muting when you strum through those A&B string double stops. And after that you always have to play the intro to Hallowed be thy name, since your fingers are already in the right position from the clean part.

 
I don't think this is hard as 6, but the quick bends don't really like to register that well and there are very few notes in the song, so 99+ is extremely hard to achieve. I'd give it 5, with the disclaimer for note density and quick bends.

 
Would also give this song 5.

 
@@Snakewizard, can you do me a solid and play the Bob Marley song on lead and see how you do?

This is a hottake showing how lackluster my vibrato is, especially on the high e string. Nearly all these errors were bends that were not wide enough, especially those whole step high e string ones.

Rhythm attempt for comparison.

Also, how did you edit an official, because that needlessly fast scrolling speed is what is solely keeping me from attempting "Satch Boogie" on lead?

Thanks! Interesting result :) Honestly didn't expect you to struggle with the bends. So I take you'd say the Bob Marley song is harder than the Beatles?

 

Using toolkit to unpack the songs.psarc, which holds the on-disc songs. Then finding the files that you need to create a dlc file and re-packing it with new name. After re-packing, you can change the scroll speed in CFSM.

^ That's how it works, but I wasn't able to get that to work, but luckily I know bwaredapenguin. He does high quality dlcs; just look at the cdlcs he made of the latest Tool album. He also extracted Satch Boogie from on-disc songs and created this:

Appreciate the link! That particular Bob Marley lead track is harder for me personally, though that is because vibrato technique is still one of my less refined areas of guitar playing, especially two or more semitone bends on the high E. Before I started the guitar paths on this contest, I had major issues even bending whole steps on the G string, which is less of the case now after practicing lead a lot more often.
