@ Daz40 - there was a bit confusion in the leaderboards about your status in bass...... i did correct that and put you in intermediate as you clearly need the challenge 😉 Rock!

I have to remind myself I've been at work for 12 hours, that's why I keep falling apart at the end of the song. I'm tired 😂

Cool week, thanks @ Rodman

Can we clarify the bass difficulty levels though? I thought we had changed so that 1-4 was beginner, 5-6 intermediate, 7-8 advanced, 9 masterclass, but recently there have been several weeks with difficulty 6 tracks as advanced and now we also have a 3.5 as intermediate.

A pleasant surprise (although it's a bit tricky)

?imw=5000&imh=5000&ima=fit&impolicy=Lett

The muted parts are very fast here. It took me at least 10 minutes to get to 50% speed in LAS on those parts. I think the difficulty may be a bit low on the rating but not sure how that's calculated.

Absolutely true!

I always try to use the paths that we get from the selection to serve all classes a challenge. Adding a lot of extra songs for single instrumentclasses comes with a bit of mess as there usually arrangements are left unplayed. If needed i use to grab a (real) bass - only song or an arrangement from the past to fill it up... Then still some songs that just don´t fit the diff ratings are not given a lot of attention cause they are set as bonus classes....
This very week was a bit bitchin in the selection process, i had to re-RNG quite a lot cause the suggested ratings were a bit off, but after a few hours that nice songs made it. The beginner song turned finally out to be just not beginner so it was replaced by Mony Mony - true beginner lead.... and i ended up with two (2)s on bass..... thought so.... but the Mony Mony testplay showed the w203s rating awfully wrong on bass there and so i ended up basswise with a perfect beginner song - Sabaton (2) and a hard hard adv / easy mc song - CKY (8) In between the - yes, let´s stick to the new ratings - very hard BEG Mony Mony and yes the INT Dua Lipa. So decision was to go Mony Mony Bonus Beg, Dua Lipa INT and give CKY to ADV and MC (all the arrangements felt cool to play so i really didn´t want to add an extra MC one). I didn´t take that one too easy but my decision was again to use the natural ascending order because a resulting "easy week" gives the opportunity to work on playing technique and making that one sound especially great, plus encourage everyone to play also the next harder class and potentially steal some points there.
In other words bass ratings are 1-4 beginner, 5-6 intermediate, 7-8 advanced, 9 masterclass, and Rodders is completely ignoring those and that!
PUNK!

skipped billy idol cuz i dont wanna tune my guitar

LOVE LOVE LOVE this song, but with these pop songs i always feel the chart is just random notes not even connected to the music being played

QbwNSp5.jpg

already played this a couple of times so not really a sight read. but this riff is so so so good. i feel this is THE childhood song of many people my age (25-30)

@ genobadass The easiest way is to take a screenshot. Then go to your steam account and go to your name. On the right hand side, there should be a list of stuff, choose screenshots. From there click upload screenshots and choose the shot. (I always upload to public, I don't think it matters). Then click the screenshot and right click and copy Then go in here and right click and paste and it will paste it here.

Here's a song thats more than 100% for those that don't think its possible! I had many more but lost a little memory some years ago, of saved data, due to a Grandson distraction! LOL Love That Kid!!! PS This is the same tune for another song with different lyrics? Hymmm....
