Notes:

  • "The Bandit" is probably pushing it for beginner level on all paths but it juts works better that way as we don't have many beginner songs in the SSL
     
  • The standard "Lively Up Yourself" rhythm path is almost entirely muted reggae strumming and would not be a good option for the Championship. The bonus rhythm path follows the bass and is at least more interesting if not much of a challenge. 
     
  • Baroness is a criminally unknown band (Mastodon-ish but I prefer Baroness vocals and bass arrangements for the most part)..."Swollen and Halo" is a lot of fun to play. Unfortunately I couldn't justify a B Standard bass chart as a regular Advanced or MC so I made it Bonus Adv. I believe the lead and rhythm parts are challenging enough to use for MC but I'm interested to hear feedback. I had another song selected for MC Lead but for various reasons didn't think it would work. 
     
  • "Lonely Town" lead path is a rhythm part as the piano plays the lead melody in that song. 
     
  • I really wanted to use "Carry On" as the Tribute song as it's so fun to play and appropriate as a tribute...but David Crosby had a pretty limited contribution to that one (backing vocals only) compared to "Almost Cut My Hair" which he wrote and for which he sang lead vocals and played rhythm guitar. I will add "Carry On" to the main SSL for future selection

This is pretty good.

This is also quite fun and the lead bits aren't too tricky.

This is 4 but can be played by beginners. The solo is short and easy, only those arpeggios (though easy) can be a challenge.

20220112204950-1.jpg

This is rather an advanced class, I give 6.5. The whole chart is such solo licks.

20230122133707-1.jpg

I once rated this a 7 from what I can see. Now I think maybe even 7.5 because these solo parts are uncomfortable to play at high frets.

While I can hear the bassline in the background and I suppose it's fun to play, the guitar track is average for me.

20230122212939-1.jpg

I think this is a similar level to the previous song, so 7/7.5.

@ jellisjenius  I also had a score of 94% on Rhythm MC last week. Is there a tie breaker I may not know about?

If the accuracy score is tied then the streak gets gets counted. If it's still a tie then the score from SA comes into play.

@ nlbsmglsk  Whew that was tough lol. I had no clue it was almost 15 minutes when I started it. It just kept going and going.

Yeah, I know. That's what I meant when I said ptsd. 83% is a great score, I got 77 on my first try.

Nice songs, a wide range of very different genres!

And now my poor sightreading in all of its glory 🤣

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

 

on this one I must look and review the scale, otherwise I can't catch anything well only reading it 😄

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

song with chords and rhythm are always a blessing

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

remembering soundgarden vibes

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

I'm not familiar with this subgerne

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

Well, it seems that, not matter the difficulty, my sightread caps at 80% 😄

Somehow I only just found out about this weekly championship. Cool idea! I usually participate in the weekly official song one at reddit but never the CDLC ones. So is this the same as the reddit one, it runs for a week and then new songs get announced with scores posted? I also noticed there are multiple songs here for each difficulty, that is neat! Also from when until when does a week run?

Yes, every week a new selection of songs for all classes. The new week usually starts on Saturday late in the evening.

Anyone can show screenshots of song scores from any class, but you can only win in class you compete in (we determine this based on skill).

That's it in short, detailed rules are in the link in the first post. 🙂

From testing:

My appreciation for KoL has grown quite a bit in the last year or two.,, especially with the release of When You See Yourself which I think is their best album so far, Their basslines are generally quite active and fun to play:

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

 

Ah, STP, I have a sort of complicated relationship with their music. You have to understand that in the early-to-mid 90s they were absolute gods in the U.S. And for the most part, I wasn't that into their stuff. Like with KoL, I have grown to appreciate them more over the years (though I still wouldn't call myself a huge fan) mostly because of their excellent low end arrangements. Like this one:

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

 

One of my least favorite Vulfpeck songs to listen to...but Joe Dart never fails to bring top notch bass work:

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

I already mentioned my love for Baroness in my earlier post. Unfortunately there are only a handful of CDLC available for them right now and this is probably the highest quality of those:

 

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

And of course the Crosby tribute. I know I cap'ed it too late and my score won't count but with all the harmonics I'm not sure I want to make another run at 100 percent:

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

Oh welcome! I'm also on the official song spotlight on reddit (and I remember you!), but here you will find more songs, more people, and I can definitely say a lot of fun!
Rules are a bit complex at first sight, but my advice is to try to play and post scores for a couple of weeks and you'll get it! Look at accuracy, not absolute score (as in the spotlight), post the screenshot pasting the link. Both learn a song and score attack scores are valid (obviously on learn a song with difficulty 100%).

Enjoy!!
