you are 100% right...

unfortunately this competition is not to "play the song as you here it correctly" but more like "play the best whatever you can see on the screen" 😉

sometimes i am very surpriced how the song sounds when i listen to it on spotify after playing it in RS...

You are also right, but I'm here to be a better bass player, not a better computer player. I'm okay at playing computer (and I also practice that often). But you're right: I'm not going to win the competition with that attitude. 😛 

Anyway... I also think the song is rather tedious (at least this bass part)... so this week I'm probably not going to win.

I thought I would share a project that @Rodman and I recently finished. 

I'm taking a recording and mixing class, and one of the assignments needed a one minute minimum recorded piece with three tracks, then we had to overdub two more tracks.  Most of the class are music majors, so I assume it was no big deal for them, however I was at a loss for what to do.  Rodman happened to message me, so I asked if he would record a few chord progressions that I could try to do something with.  Man, he was all over it and within a few hours had a verse and chorus section recorded. I put some Band in a Box drums to it, noodled out a melody and a song started taking shape. I've been wanting to write a song for a while, so this seemed like a good opportunity. I wrote some lyrics about the coronavirus lockdown and recorded them as an overdub. I sent it over to Rodman and he recorded lyrics for the chorus, and we each recorded a solo.  I mixed it using what I've been learning, and boom...a song!  So here it is, Lockdown, and original song by Rodman and Diceslinger!



great, but now you need to record a bass to complete. That's really missing

Didn't have much time for the Championship this week as I've used more of my Rocksmith time working on my own customs (latest is Unknown Mortal Orchestra - So Good at Being in Trouble).

I think this is more of a 4 than a 3 but it's classed correctly at intermediate:


This bass chart is largely wrong but it doesn't sound terrible and it's reasonably fun to play IMO:


Ah, Tool...all the fast alternating strings, for 10+ minutes. At the beginning I struggle, then I get the hang of it, then by the end I'm just ready to be done. And I don't care to replay for a higher score:

Ugh. First time i remember to submit in time, and Steam needs a full reinstall and I lose all CDLC. I redownload RS and fire up the Tool tab. Not working, at all. Sigh. I *did* get 94% on bass, but i guess without the screenshot it's kinda hearsay. 

Back up your CDLC, kids!
