1. I've decided to keep the original difficulty ratings and ordering for historical accuracy, but imo everything should be rated at least a point lower. Except the Green Day bass, which is more int than beginner and I think should get a 4.

2. The Extreme song has a really cool solo, and Brian May seems to agree with me on this https://youtu.be/fqkKFhFMaIw

I gotta post a link for the rest of my scores. Nothing happens when I insert image using URL and I only have 805.46 kB remaining for media

 

You're posting a link to the gallery. The forum software here does not know what to do with it. If you RMB directly on the image, select "Copy Image Url" and then paste that here it should inline automatically.

RIP Ronnie Hawkins https://www.nytimes.com/2022/05/29/obituaries/ronnie-hawkins-dead.html

No tribute, though because I can't find anything on Ignition Search.  FYI, his band, the Hawks, became Dylan's backing band and eventually The Band.  IIRC, he was the first special guest in The Last Waltz, the last show that The Band played together.

1. What is the FB police?
2. What's the deal with this freebird thing?
3. Why do you only show up when someone dies?  Are you Death from Discworld?

I'll answer the questions out of order.

I competed in the championship regularly from approximately week 100 to week 200.  When they brought in the Freebird rule, I jumped onboard because, of course, playing what I want, when I want is as rock and roll as it gets. The FB police became the running gag about me not following any other rule.

I had always suggested tributes to the fallen heros while competing. So I just kept up the practice for the last few years.

Take THAT FreeBird Police! 😝

Edit - and bonus points for the Terry Pratchett reference 👍

Well, all I can say to that is keep on doing what you're doing. But if you ever consider posting something on a less grim occasion, don't hold back.

I still post the occasional score, but only bass category in standard tuning.  I mostly build and play bass sixes and they don't agree with downtuning.

@avastregYour move.

 

I'm getting closer 😎

Unfortunately I will be away on holiday from Thursday morning so I have like 2 days to do my best and give fuel to the duel. I'll probably skip learning the solo, even if it's awesome, because I don't have enough time. It's a shame because this song deserve the race to 100% (for rhythm at least)

@coldrampagegreat score too!
