Love love love this.. One of my all time favorite albums.. big thanks to @Nacholede for creating the CDLC. I'll be playing this one for a loong time. A few of the charts are a little different from wh

An old playthrough. Gotta give it another shot to see if I can reach 98%

I guess i'll pass this week with the Sword song, don't wanna risk it by going too low. Also, I asked Rodman If we could use my AJFA Full album chart as a GoG competition!

Lots of songs to play this week, nice. But I wonder why GOG is only for Lead when CDLC full album AJFA has rhythm and bass as well. We used all 3 paths previously, so I hope Rhythm and Bass will be there now!

Hey Dice! Had a walkthrough at that cool Kiss song. When i heard it so many times at my morning coffee i felt the dark soul under that happy screaming cloak. I´m happy at the recording it could be easily brought to light.
I recorded a clean guitar line based on the original, didn´t change anything in the song structure here. Then recorded bass, recorded the Drums on Cajon (but skipped those for the drummachine (cause in the end i just forgot to change it), i think its ok) recorded vocals, as those deviltounges are going together on the chorus - of course i doubled myself there too, did a bad solo (the one in the song is so ridiculous). Doubled the guitar and put distortion to one of the tracks - rookie mistake recorded the "dry" signal with a bit too much reverb which gets the amplification well.

Will learn on acoustic also, really like that devilish song.

 

Hope you enjoy!

Rod.

That cult track is a toughie. Jeez louise.

 

I agree, it is challenging.  When I played it to rate it I thought it a 6 or 7, but lead was rated a 5.5 in week 170, so I went with that 5.5 rating.

I can't get the bass beginner song to work. It crashes right after I've tuned the bass. Any suggestions? There is a comment about it with the song, but the fix-link (in the comment) doesn't work (I don't understand the explanation). 😞
Instead I've begun practicing the Danish song (yes, Volbeat is a Danish band 🙂 ).
It's a bit tough, but when you get the idea it's playable... more or less at my level.
But I've wondered about the difficulty levels for the bass path. 4, 5, and 6. Aren't they all supposed to be at the intermediate level (1-3 beginner, and so forth)?
I also tried the Disturbed one... it's very disturbing. And I think much harder than Volbeat. At least 7.

My advice is to download and install the CustomsForge Song Manager and use the repair option for any CDLC.  That fixes quite a few issues.  Let us know if it doesn't

Vobeat - yes, that one is fun to play to me!  

As for the difficulty, songs are generally selected by the lead path, then the others are filled in.  There are a few things we can do if there isn't a bass part fitting a class.  We can leave no song for the class, we can fill it with an unused song from a prior week, or we can pick a song from the past.  This week I chose songs based on a theme (rather than from the song selection spreadsheet) and I had a hard time find a fitting beginner and masterclass song.  The Cult - Outlaw song had been chosen as a beginner song from a previous week on bass so I used it.  Sometimes there are songs that at 95% beginner song, but have a tricky part that qualifies them a higher rating.  That is my guess on the rating for that song. 

You will find that the song ratings are an art rather than a science and any discussion about the ratings is welcome.  There are always songs that some find easy and others find difficult.  I thought the bass part for both the Lone Rider and Criminal were hard, but both only have 3-4 different patterns throughout the whole song.  For Criminal specifically I didn't think a 99.5% score was enough to level a participant up to masterclass.

By the way, I recommend everyone listen to Disturbed's cover of Sound of Silence.  It is amazing, and quite the contrast to Criminal!

I can't get this song out of my head.  Really like it, I'm going to have to check out the whole album

 

 

 

Volbeat is amazing...one of my favorite bands. If you want to listen to more, I recommend you start with Beyond Hell/Above Heaven (2010 album) and then listen to all their stuff after that. And of course a ton of their stuff is CDLC and some ODLC as well.

why was my Octavarium submission counted as only 96% when it was 96.71%?

I entered the score in as 96% because it was in Learn a Song mode and that is what I could identify as a valid screen shot.  I'm not sure if any other counter for percentage is valid, so I will defer that decision to @Rodman.

I couldn´t find that screenshot quickly, but

If a score is done in Score Attack (SA) it scores with the .xx

If it´s done in Learn a Song (LAS) only the full % of accuracy can count cause it may differ from the big Mastery Number

Wouldn't be more practical if somebody ran this program and when it's fixed put it out to us all?
I must admit, that it seems rather unmanageable to figure out yet another program... I'll have a go at it, but...
And who uses .rar files today... argh... 😞
