@ GeoAbraxas

Thanks for making nice selection of this week!

You just forgot to add info who suggested the song, as we usually do. I see you have selected 2 of my suggestions - Scorpions and Papa Roach songs.

Regarding Papa Roach - Fallin Apart - I mentioned in the spreadsheet that there is a Drop D version - link to it here: https://ignition4.customsforge.com/cdlc/54437, because the original C# Drop B tuning may not be available for some participants.

As for When The Smoke Is Going Down, the bass path is very easy there as far as I remember, so I think it would be better if it was a bonus.

Have nice week everybody! 😀

Good choices! A comment though:

I have always found the @ Nacholede  versions of Iron Maiden songs including Seventh Son of a Seventh Son to be superior to the other bass charts (I'm a bassist only so can't speak to the lead/rhythm parts). In this case, his version was created in July 2021 and the previous one was from 2014/15 so I think we should use the more recent and IMO better one.

@ Mikson I did miss attributing the requests, that's been corrected. Got myself a bit out of sorts trying to update the song list and ended up needing a song to fit in to everything and completely forgot about checking who made the requests beforehand. I'll do a better job of checking that stuff out in the future. I also switched the beginner and bonus bass songs there, there wasn't really any decision making gone into that order, I just had Scorpions on the list first and Papa Roach came second so it just became my bonus by default.

@ jellisjenius That's my bad, I do generally look at the newer versions of the songs, but since the request was made in the spreadsheet by Nacholede I just assumed it was that version being referenced. That request might have been on there for awhile. I did update to that version in the original post but I did keep the original link for posterity's sake. I'm very sorry @ nlbsmglsk but I hope you wouldn't mind giving Seventh Son another try with the updated version. Also, if you really want to get used to bass power chords the Steve Harris way, pretty much every album Iron Maiden released in the 2000s features a crapton of them. Any song off the Brave New World album (IIRC Ghost of the Navigator and the title track are both good examples of this).

So, this time I tried those low tunings for the first time (C-Standart and C#Dropped-B🤔). I realised that I have problems finding the right pressure to put on the strings...also I was too lazy to change the strings lenght for two songs. My lazyness produced wrong notes on the higher frets.

Example:

Nevertheless, for the sake of fun and XP, I tried to play Falling Apart and Dopesmoker.
