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.

Nice!  I noticed a few new steps.  First, you recorded the bass part, nice touch!  Second, the doubled vocals on the chorus, it seems you are trying some things out with mixing.  What are you using to do that?  Is it a fullblown DAW or something you can do with your Trio pedal?

Very nicely done.  I'm amazed that you heard the song one day and had it ready to perform the next.  You really are getting better at understanding the song structure to turn them around so quickly!  Your solo fit in well I thought.  I wondered if you let the notes at first part of the solo ring out longer that it might feel more cohesive.  It felt like a lick, then a rest, then another lick, then another rest, then the solo got serious.  

I'm pretty excited, I'm signed up to take a university course in audio recording technology this semester.  I'm hoping it will help we take my recordings to the next level.  I'm hoping it won't slow me down too much with our challenge, but it is clear which one of us is the speedy one 🙂

Welcome to the CF Rocksmith 2014 Championship!     -= Week 378 =-   FAQ: => How and Why join the Championships? => Rocksmith 2014 Championships rules    

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%

It bothers me that I usually only play the weeks championship songs maybe 3 times max. and usually that Saturday only. Most of the time just once.  This is from Sunday did'nt play sat...

Hey folks, my first time participating - thanks for setting this up.  I picked up my guitar in November after giving up on learning it years ago.  This time it's sticking!  Having something new to focus on every week is going to help for sure.

Anyway, here's my best run so far at Outlaws.  Almost got it down.

I really dig the Volbeat song, but I'm still working up to hard mode on that one.  I think the strings are so loose in that drop tuning that I'm bending notes all over the place by accident.

Thx man!

For recording i used my Zoom R24 here, it has 24 tracks for recording, featues a decent drummachime and also a looper and has quite some built in effects like the distortion i used up there. No Trio+ on that recording. I have tested a few DAWs end of last year, have not decided which to go with, so until now i am happy to have the hardware options. Which one do you prefer? Really excited about your course there, we shall be talking a lot about improvements!

The solo didn't come easy here. While the other parts are mainly first tries i has to experiment here quite a bit and ended with the lick style thing to open the gate.

So waiting for your version!

 

Rock, Rod.

I was thinking that it would be useful if someone wrote up a tutorial on how to do the pitch shifting with Song Manager.  I hate to see people not want to play songs in low tunings, but I get it why they don't.  

1. Select song

2. click "custom mods"

3. click "pitch shifter"

Finally I got some nice results... Actually I'm a bit proud of the "easy" song. 🙂 But I think there was a bit of luck included. Put damn it's a hard one... going on and on.

I really enjoy this Lonesome Rider. It's a great and fun bass-part, though it also tears on my stamina. This time it went quite nicely. I have to remember not to strain my hand... just relax, and it gets easier to play. 🙂

It's a shame, that I couldn't get the song manager to work with my NoCable. Could be nice if anyone had some experience in that direction. Sometimes it would be nice to change pitch, at least so I don't use so much time tuning. 😉

It's great with this competition... It makes me practice a lot... every day. 🙂

First time posting on here, I seen a championship section and was curious, realised I've already played one of the songs so this was my second attempt  : ) 

 

I didnt know if I was to post here or on discord so if i've done something wrong please tell me thanks.

I can help you with that. 🙂 (I'm clever... and had allready complained about it earlier. 😉 )

I had the same problem. You can download the CustomForge Song Manager (CFSM) and using that program you can "fix" files. I have no idea what it does apart from fixing. And I'm also uncertain why nobody just do it, and put it back up for download.

If you're using NoCable thingy, there might be a problem with starting the game with that (my version couldn't find my cable anymore). But then I just uninstalled CFSM (after the file was fixed 😉 ). Now it all works...

Anyway... this is the answer from the NOOB. 😛

Man, "Eye of the Beholder" really has some currently relevant lyrics

"Freedom of speech is words that they will bend
Freedom with their exception"

"Who decides what you express?"

Here's the score sorry about the background I need to make a better one.
Got a bunch of random misses too but it's probably just rs being stupid.

@It Happens1

Will you be able to play Criminal again to get 99%+ accuracy and level up to the masterclass level? You are too good for the advanced class, so we have no chance in this competition 😉

Hi All

This week results:

Inter Lead: 8Jf89yZ.png

Inter Rhythm: 7QO00iZ.png

Do you have any tip for me, how to accurately learn the rhythm of the plucking? Just practicing only or do you have any tricks? Sometimes specially when the rhytmic is complitated I hear a bit different rhytmic than it is in the Rocksmith cDLC.

Thanks and have a nice day!
