For the GoG song, I think it should be the second week of Jeff Loomis's song. GoG songs were always played for 2 weeks or 4 for full alubums.

I didn't realize that was a hard and fast rule. I won't be playing the GoG song so it doesn't matter to me but doing my selections from a musical standpoint I'd much rather have Zappa there.  GoG competitors - please let me know ASAP if you were hoping for a second week of "Jato Unit". If I don't hear anything I'll just leave it as is. 

 

Also, a note: the Adv/Int/Int song this week, "Too Bad" by Rival Sons, was taken off CF recently for some reason so I've linked to my own copy.

The rules should be clear. So that participants in the GoG competition know how much time they have to improve their scores. So I think now it should be the second week of last week's song, and we can move this one to a week later.

Another week has begun, and another group of very different songs has been downloaded and now tried. 🙂 Thanks! As usual I start out with the beginners songs. First time I had to find out what happened, but at second play through I managed the 100%. 🙂 It had it's places. I'd say 2½-3.

?imw=1024&imh=575&ima=fit&impolicy=Lette

The other beginners song was a bit different, but I managed 100% first time, so it's not that difficult. 2. This was second time with score attack.

?imw=1024&imh=575&ima=fit&impolicy=Lette

Then started the tuning. There should be a law against it! 😛 The Rivals was a bit tricky, but I just have to figure it out, I guess. Not sure how I feel about the difficulty...

?imw=1024&imh=575&ima=fit&impolicy=Lette

At the advanced levels I got some more problems... I feel like the fingering should have been different. But I'll look into it, and practice the difficult parts. Then maybe it makes sense. 😉

?imw=1024&imh=575&ima=fit&impolicy=Lette

The other advanced had a strange sound. It was hard to hear if I was playing it right. And the riff at the beginning I think should all be played on e-string. This also needs some focus on some parts, but it's closer than Muse.

?imw=1024&imh=575&ima=fit&impolicy=Lette

And finally the masterclass. This was mainly guessing, and I don't feel like being close to learning it. Couldn't make sense of it. I think it's beyond my level.

?imw=1024&imh=575&ima=fit&impolicy=Lette

That's fine. I updated the OP.

Is the INT lead bracket just me? this is the 2nd week in a row i'm winning and i only got 93%  on the Beach Boys song, idk seems strange

The average winning score for Intermediate Lead typically isn't higher than 95-96 percent and sometimes lower (we had two weeks in a row where it was high 70s-low 80s). I would guess that this is because of the steeper learning curve for lead as opposed to rhythm and bass, and the fact that intermediate lead may have some soloing and/or fiddly bits. But no, you're not the only competitor. Based on your scores so far you may want to consider moving up to advanced at some point.

Regarding "Victory", apologies if there are any issues with that one. I had to add it at the last minute as I needed an advanced rhythm song so I didn't have a chance to test it at all. That's part of why I put it as a bonus on bass.

Sorry about the repeat of Too Bad - I love Rival Sons and had this one on my list to test, but checking against the songs from the past slipped through the cracks.

It ain´t that bad for it is a year gone and really a good CS song.
