A few notes:

This is a repeat of week 168, which was the first Championship Week of 2017 and almost exactly 5 years ago. 

Billy Cobham's challenging Quadrant 4 was only featured as God of Guitar on lead that week (and repeated not too long ago in week 400), but I have included here the rhythm and bass arrangements in advanced class because the rhythm advanced had nothing that week, and the advanced bass song from that week is no longer available. Quadrant 4 and Invaders were both rated as an 8 difficulty so if people feel that Quadrant 4 is more difficult I can switch those two for Adv/MC. 

There was also no beginner rhythm arrangement that week, and since we haven't had any candidates in beginner rhythm lately I chose to keep it that way. 

Enjoy the week!

@ Nacholede -1) Not even one run on Invaders? I know not exactly your fav band, but a metal classic!
2) You got so many great great CDLCs created - so if you are not going to be spending a lot of time competing that week - wanna do us the honor and create a "Nacho Week"???
Thx for being here all the time, feels like yd when we had Octavarium on week 50 😂
Rock!

 

P.s. - Yeah, we also like freshly selected week with so far unplayed songs a lot more than Da Capos, but we are currently only about 3 (!) active members to do weekstarts, which is by far not enough - so everyone: IF YOU WANNA HELP KEEPING OUR CONTEST AT THAT GREAT LEVEL AND CAN FIND SOME TIME TO LIKE ONCE IN A FEW WEEKS DO SONG SELECTION OR ALSO WANT TO START THE NEW WEEK JUST PM ME OR POST HERE!!!!

Thx!!!

love Amorphis, music from my youth is always great, though that one is from their new period.
That riff is to be worked on, for amorphis quite a hard one (7)

I checked the bass first this time.

I think, that U2 and Muse songs are similar difficulty on bass (3/4 both), so the ratings 2 and 5 are too far away. But I understand that these are ratings from the past.

The challenge starts here!

8 yes, difficult for my left hand endurance.

9 yes, I couldn't keep up here anymore, the hardest IM song I've played on the bass so far.

I already gave it a shot! I'll upload my score in a bit, not enough for first place tho

And that would be so cool! A Nacho week would be crazy

btw, I'll love to do some song selections for the week, so count me in

Now the leaderborad says bonus, and I think that's what was played on week 168, but the post doesn't mention it. So, not sure which arrangement to play, I did both. (Spoiler: the bonus one is a lot harder).

If there's no one else, I'm willing to step up. Just let me know when to post.
