Hah, a 70s/80s pack. That explains it. :D

I wonder why RS mashes the two decades together? Surely there are enough tracks available in their pipeline so that they can release them as either 70s or 80s packs? Although I'd guess there would be more 70s than 80s packs.

No wonder the speculation thread was all over the place as to what theme there was behind Kansas and Judas Priest: there wasn't really one.

Black Betty seems like the cheapest song they licensed so far, but it's a good tune might get it later

I will get Kansas eventually. I like Black Betty just not enough to spend money on it. Judas Priest only like 2 songs by them and I have them from the previous pack so no this song. Good variety just nothing I want to spend money on now.

This is my only complaint about jumping ship to PC. Steam takes another roughly four hours to get the DLC up. Of course it is the middle of my work day so I really don't need the "ooo shiny!" distraction anyway.

They hate us PC users. They're actually debating on whether to give us the new DLC, or to just give us more Fallout Boy and Nickelback songs.

Here is a vid for Combo 2 of Carry On Wayward Son. A little raw, but you will get the idea. Combo 2 allows you to learn all the signature riffs without the annoying verse arpeggio and all the solos.

Sorry it's not Combo, which I'm sure you are all looking for. I did "master" Combo last night, but it was too brutul sounding to post a video, maybe if I can clean it up. I am a little surprised the Rocksmith video "pros" don't have a combo run video up yet. Probably see one or two today I suspect. I just can't get the hang of the verse arpeggios. The solos all seem to be trsnscribed pretty well and are a lot of fun to play. They're tough but not insanely hard to level up. There are four solo sections in all with the first being rated the hardest. I need a lot of work on those too before I post a Combo vid.

Hope this link works, I'vs been seeing a lot of "need latest Flash Player" type error messages.

Anyway FWIW here's COMBO 2:

That was fast, pick_pocket!

Good guitar tone! Maybe a little loud over the vocals, but not terrible, and sounds really spot on tone wise.

Good job on the playing.

I guess all that other guitar work is in the other combo? I hope.

Got Combo 1 of Carry down- really fun song, probably in my top DLC. Would love to memorize it but the acoustic part may make that tricky...

Thanks RCole.

Yes, I noticed the volume thing when I listened to the playback. The audio is a direct feed from my laptop to my iPhone (usnig a Fostex iPhone adapter) with the Music Volume set to 100 and the guitar volume set to 95. If I was doing it again, I would drop the Guitar Volume in the game to 80-85 range. I find the mix of guitar to music varies a lot from DLC to DLC.

The tone is really good for the main riffs and the solos, but not so good for the arpeggio parts, especially for the verse parts on Combo. Somebody commented earlier that this song might suffer from the single tone limitation in Rocksmith. I tend to agree, but I love the song so much I can get over it. I can't use Kittendaddy's foot pedal trick for switching tones on the fly on my PC, so the best I can do is switch to my rhythm pick up set to a lower volume to take some of the harsh overdrive tones out of it. I didn't bother doing this for this Combo2 video. I haven't got the transisitions solid enough to work that in smoothly.

Now that sfenton posted the Combo video, you can see all the other guitar parts.

@sfenton Nice playing on that Combo video. Sounds a lot better than what I would have posted last night. :)
I like the camera angle and the video blend too. I am too lazy to go to that trouble.

You guys make it look so easy. I'm thinking "I could do that", untill I actually try. LOL. That won't stop me from trying though. I'm picking all three up tonight.

btw, is it a 3 pack or individual songs?

Individual- basically, any week that's not a single artist isn't a pack. :p

Yeah, definitely took a few runs to get it down. I had been working on switching to an acoustic tone for the acoustic sections, but I'm not as coordinated with my toe on a controller as I thought! So I just decided to run with the default tone, which kind of hides my suckiness during that part. The song's not as difficult as I had initially thought, though, so definitely go and give your own rendition of it :)

(Just posting my Combo video now)

I actually thought about using tone switches on this one, but ultimately decided to play the verse more "muted" and call it done. I can use my foot pad trick on my PC, along with an app called JoyToKey. Basically just set the foot buttons to F1, F2, etc.

Problem is, on the PC version, it seems to be very buggy about changing tones in general. Sometimes when you change tones, it cuts the guitar out altogether, like it hasn't loaded the tone. I've also had it change tones and stop detecting altogether. I will post something in the bugs thread if it hasn't already.

Fwiw, this is how I did this video (Alive, posted last night) - used the dance pad + JoyToKey on the modulated bridge (you can see it @2:45 in)

(hope it's not bad form to post a video for DLC other than this week in this thread)

And the video is done. Yeah, really wishing I did something with the tone on the verse >.>.

Good work, Kittendaddy.

Yes, the PC tone loading and note detection dropping out, post it in the feedback, and post a ticket to ubisoft.

I actually ....finally... have them looking at some of the posts about the issue on here.

They act like they've never heard of the problem.

Downloaded Carry on Wayward Son, and Black Betty today. Fun on guitar for sure. Black Betty's Bass arrangement is the most difficult arrangement to play out of these so far for me. Solo and Solo 2 are 5 and 7 block sections respectively, so they are super lenient, but they are really fast with a bunch of hand movement, so they are difficult to level even with this leniency.

That's disturbing that they act like they don't know about the note detection thing. I'd even take an easy workaround since this happens to me almost every event - just check the song score after 5 or 10 seconds. If the score is 0, show the cable unplugged message and then just restart the song. That can't be that hard to figure out and implement!!

I had that many times... I just pause the game, unplug the cable and plug it back on again, then resume. It has worked so far.

That was one support contact's answer, I got. I would assume the actual developers know more about the "real" problems than the front line support desk help.

Still we have to get through those "defenses" to get out issues to the developers. :p

All normal software support stuff. A little frustrating at times, but with patience it will eventually get done.

Yes, RSDAVE, replugging the cable works, but I have to repeat that for every song in an event. With an 8 song event, plus 2 encores, I wearing the carpet out under my desk crawling back there to replug the cable.

This issue is very odd. I was having it for a while only at the beginning of a song or at the sound check. Then all of a sudden I didn't have the problem once for at least a month or so. The other night after downloading the latest dlc I had the problem twice. Strange.

RSDAVE
02-22-2013, 02:30 PM
Whoa, It seems you are hit more severely by the problem than I ever was, so my apologes RCole... I did not play on my PC for a while (too many interesting DLCs on my PS3!) so I didn't know it was so bad now. There are frequent updates for DLCs, maybe they broke something in the process ?

SFenton
02-25-2013, 03:19 PM
Bass for the week! Ram Jam probably knocks YYZ off for the hardest bass song! Wayward fun but follows guitar a bit too closely sometimes! Priest... well, you can probably guess bass-ed on earlier Priest songs!
