Rocksmith Catch All

It is guitar learning season again for Greg.

Has anyone found YouTube videos that give hints on how to fret the songs? As mentioned earlier in the thread, even in single note play, sometimes it is best to hold a chord shape and pick the strings. However, being new to guitar, I have no chance to figure out when that would be appropriate.

I did a little searching on YouTube and haven't found anything useful. Anyone else find anything?

Thanks!

Justinguitar.com, which was mentioned upthread is a pretty decent resource for the beginning guitarist.

Time for whisky and More than a Feeling. RAAAAWR!

[/bump]

PC version pushed back to "Fall".

Too bad, I really do not want to buy DLC on the PS3.

I'm holding from more dlc until i find out what's happening with bandfuse.

I'm firing this up tonight. I'll post a new challenge song.

EDIT:

ARISE ROCKSMITH THREAD!

"I got mine" by the Black Keys, single note arrangement.

Good pick.

The solo has some pretty badass licks in it. I can't wait to practice more.

Finally put some time on More than a Feeling. So my submission is 93,349. I had a couple of combo breakers so I could probably get around 95k with a few more runs but I don't think I'll be getting >100k until mastering Solo1.

"I Got Mine" - 47,777

That's my first attempt. Not sure if I'll go back to it or not. I'm having too much fun trying to learn guitar. Also, Space Oddity is kicking my butt. So many chords! I find Dawn of the Chordead is actually really helping with that. I had to work today, which is unfortunate for my playtime, but I did get to spend my downtime trying to learn to play "Frog's Theme" from Chrono Trigger.

Edit: I didn't bother to take a picture, but I'm sure you guys will trust me not to make up that score.

YOU STINKING LIAR

97,442 on I Got Mine so far. May try for something higher later.

EDIT: After talking with Hickle (and reading above), I realize that we're doing the single note arrangement. That score I first listed is combo.

Just did some work on the single note and got 99,877. Gonna try to break 100,000.

Got it. 102,774. I'll post a picture after twitter stops acting up.

There we go.

(raises hand) me! me! I like Judas Priest!

I'm not a JP fan but I had considered picking them up for the guitar parts. I saw a trailer for the DLC though and the overplayed BtL and LAM were boring and PK was just absolutely absurd. Lots of sweeping on that.

YOU DAMNED DIRTY ENABLERS!! My little acoustic was doing just fine gathering dust in the bedroom when I came across this thread. Picking up Rocksmith today and shopping around for an electric in two. I guess I'll spend the few weeks re-callousing my fingers.

I have not been able to top my previous score. I'd say looks like you won this week unless I'm missing a crazy Ickle score I thought I saw.

I think we should move to biweekly challenges.

What about a persistent leaderboard? A google spreadsheet or something we can update and people can just work on whatever song they want? Just a thought.

Ooh, that's a good call. Would definitely work for those of us who are schedule-challenged.

I'll get something put together.

Well, here's a rough framework: GWJ Rocksmith Leaderboard

Because there are way more songs than GWJ players I did the songs in a list. With so many variations in arrangements (combo 1, combo 2, single note) I didn't bother trying to double the length by separating those. I guess you can just separate them in the order Rocksmith lists them. Now if any of you spreadsheet gurus have a better plan for this, go nuts.

I did the "I Got Mine" challenge, I just forgot to post my score. I seem to recall mine also being 102,7xx, I just can't remember what the "xx" was.

At any rate, still playing.

I ended up with 102,896 on I Got Mine. Fun song, I just couldn't spare the time to memorize the solo riffs.

Sidenote, I think it's kind of silly the way the break up combo and single note (especially on songs like I Got Mine or Icky Thump) on songs where there's really only one guitar part anyway.

With "I got mine" it's not quite so bad. I still play the power chords in the beginning and end since the game detects the base note.

It's mostly the chorus that bugs me, the single note transcription of the chorus is just toothless compared to the combo version.

Thank you! I was too lazy to do this, but I'm so glad someone did.

Thanks for this. I think i will add my name when I have some time.

Bump! DLC-Day.

Today is a Police pack:
Roxanne
Synchronicity II
Message in a Bottle

Woohoo! Next DLC should be The Offspring! That should be a blast to play.
