Rocksmith 2014 Championship Week 29


Recommended Posts

Da Rules

(Credit to the Ubi Forums for some Ideas!):

1. Anyone may join the contest as long as he's a forum member.

2. You can play "Score Attack" On Hard or "Learn a Song" with all sections mastered (all purple): You may also play a song which does not have DD on Score Attack easy if you cannot get through it on hard as all the notes will still show up on easy but it won't X you out as easily.

3. There are three classes: Beginner, Intermediate and Masterclass. If you enter to the contest the first time, you choose your class.

3.2 You are then leveled automatically as follows: 3x =>90% (3 weeks in a row) or 1x 98% qualifies you for the next class. If you score <=79% on a level two weeks in a row you are leveled down one class. You may choose to follow this rule or not we are very laid back on this rule as some songs are either easier or harder so if a given song in a class is too difficult for you please feel free to enter by playing the song you feel comfortable with.

4. Both instruments are leveled separately.

5. You may only enter in one class per arrangement. (Bass, Rhythm, lead) but you may participate in all available arrangements

6. One Song is chosen for all Instruments and classes

7. Every Saturday new songs are chosen. From all participants of a class, one is chosen at random by Kaijin, Krazyone or Richomat.

8. Every member should put the song he/she would choose in the Song Selection List

9. Only 1 song per class will be selected and only custom DLC's with at least 1 arrangement for guitar and 1 arrangement for bass are allowed. Also Originally included songs may be selected as well. NO OFFICIALLY RELEASED DLC is supported at this time. . 

 

9a. All songs must have riff repeater and a custom tone in order to qualify for the championships

10. You only need to change the song in the list if you are selected. If not, you can keep the same choice, or choose another, it's up to each one of you.

11. On Saturday, if your name is picked and you didn't entered any song in the Song Selection List, another member will be chosen.

12. Starting with the publication of the songs, you may enter your score.

13. The scores are entered in the corresponding google doc: Leaderboard Kaijin, Krazyone, richomat and afterdark take care of entering the scores.

14. You must post a screenshot with your score showing the Accuracy %.

15. Ranking is done by percentage first, then by Longest Streak.

16. If you play LAS (Learn a Song), you percentage will be always, xx.00%, if you prefer SA (Score Attack), your percentage will always be xx.xx%.

17. You may choose any song for your class as long as it's provided on the forums and has at least 1 arrangement for each instrument.

18. Every song is up for discussion until Sunday around 23:00 UTC. If you think a song is to hard, please let us know in the thread, so we may discuss it.

19. After Sunday 23:00 the songs are set and are not allowed to change.

20. The contest closes the next Saturday around 18:00 UTC

21. The winners are announced in the OP of the corresponding week's thread.

22. Rules may change without notice. So watch out.

Beginners song is in D standard tuning so I wont be playing that and the intermediate song is an 18 minute song with no sections in riff repeater, could be time consuming to learn lol.

 

Think I'll learn Wannabe by the Spice girls this week :)

ok being that the Intermediate song once again is not good I am changing it. Please from now on make sure the songs you select have the requirements listed in the song selection list and in the initial post of every weekly thread. I have added that rule to avoid having to keep on changing songs every week. Thank you in advance for your assistance people.

This song is tough but fun and I wish it would show the bars up top while playing but alas no bars.

You are correct flannathir I even put a * next to your name to tell me not to count you but I guess i didn't notice it when adding the names. I have corrected the error and thank you for your honesty.

hmm I may have an older version of the song. I will remove what I have and redownload the one linked here. I was wondering why it sounded so off.

getting better and better and no I have not riff repeated any of it. I love trying to learn songs at full speed its more of a challenge to me even if it takes a bit longer to learn them.

@ Krazyone

I'm sure this has already been brought up, but why isn't there different songs for at least guitar and bass. Perfect example is the song I submitted today. Rhythm is beginner, bass is intermediate, and lead would be master. I'm sure that it's this way to simplify things for you (keeping track of 9 songs and all participants sounds like a pain in the arse!) Just a thought.

More Alice Cooper coming!

In theory that would be awesome to do but as you say it would be a hassle to keep up with all the songs and people playing them. I don't have that much time on my hands to try each and every song to determine what arrangement should go in what difficulty which is why I was trying to do the song selection list but it's very hard to update it with the time I have. This is the reason I am not strict with people and let everyone play what they want. I keep the competition running mainly as a learning tool so people can challenge themselves and seeing people get better every week makes me feel good.

First attempt, 0 strikes! lol

 

 

And no i dont use a pick or even play like I have one. My Idol is Steve Harris and the way he plays.

Nice run! I'm a huge fan of Steve Harris' bass playing as well, definitely an inspiration and one of the reasons I always finger rather than pick!
