Never listened to Oasis before this week's challenge song, but I must have heard it somewhere, it does sound familiar. I like this week's Oasis song. I will be checking those out.

I like the picks, but probably won't get any, I'm trying to minimize the 'slightly off E standard tuning' songs in my catalog as I am lazy in terms of tunings.

once again they release a single song,only to find out it is part of a pack a week later, it's a blatant rippoff, now i have to buy the other 4 songs individually at $4.50 !.....or not! I'm not giving Ubisoft my money this time, Oasis is just a Beatles coverband anyway........(waits for the abuse) hehe

I've heard of them, mainly the sibling fighting I guess. I thought he was the lead for Van Halen III but I was mistaken. And the Wonderwall song is something I've heard at one time or another. Still, I'll likely get the pack. You can't always tell what might be fun from a guitar or bass perspective :)

Your schtick of playing stupid and then complaining is getting a bit old. It was specifically, in no uncertain terms, stated in this very forum, in threads I know for a fact you saw, that the single Oasis song mistakenly released last week was just that, mistakenly released... at which point, Toy immediately started the new thread for 1/14 DLC... If you then chose to buy that single song, who is at fault? Of course, according to you, it's Ubisoft... never you... no, never you...

You don't get to have it every which way. Either you are paying so close attention to what is being released that you want to complain about not getting it on time, or you don't pay attention and get duped into buying a single song that was released by your **** network when that was clearly a mistake. You don't get to do both. Either pay attention and complain, or don't pay attention and complain. I don't think anyone is interested in you paying attention when you shouldn't and ignoring things when you should be paying attention and then complaining to us about them.

Take responsibility for your own actions once in a while, particularly when you frequent this forum and what was happening was never a mystery here.

Ooh first really conflicted DLC decision of RS14. Not a fan (to say the least) but the guitar parts sound fun, but that tool's vocals are really painful for this vacillating customer. I'd definitely buy them if RS had vocal muting - I wish some game had that! :-)

Edit: Maurader is right - even the dogs in the street knew that was an accident last week and almost certain to be part of a pack at some point.

Whole pack for me. I've always rather liked Oasis, even if the Gallaghers were twits. I have to admit, the first time I heard Don't Look Back in Anger, i thought it was some hitherto unreleased track by the Beatles.

The Who, Aerosmith, and now Oasis. RS is on a roll with DLC (IMHO), making 'the other game' seem really out of it even ahead of their headline debut release of Hendrix (which admittedly is a very cool get by them).

Lol... The Who, Aerosmith and Oasis (most likely) are the only RS14 DLC that I haven't bought to date. And yet somehow the sun still rises - I do love weekly DLC, it really takes the sting out of a 'bad' run.

And isn't that the biggest indicator of all that those other bands have other DLC packs in store for our future while Oasis does not? At least that's how it reasons out in my head... If they only have enough to support a single pack, release the hounds. If they have enough grade A material to support several packs with a few new releases peppered in, they'll hold some of the goodness to anchor a future pack... I thought that before, I think that even more after seeing the contents of this pack.

This is a bit of a tough call for me. I can't stand Gallaghers in general and I burned out on Wonderwall and especially Champagne Supernova back in the 90's. I'll probably hold off for now and eventually buy them during the inevitable binge.

I was going to go no DLC this week but I noticed some new Japanese rock offerings. I really wish they would make that a permanent thing and have more JDLC every couple weeks for the long term.

I bought the entire pack immediately, but have just been playing Champagne Supernova over and over, alternating between Lead and Rhythm. At some point I'll stop and try the other songs. :)

The rhythm arrangement is good practice for me to get used to the using the thumb to fret the bass note.

I would get this, but I'm done with the off-tuning songs I think. I can see how they work for people who spend a lot of time on a single song, but I'm the kind of guy who likes to play a whole bunch of different songs every time I plug in my guitar, and I've already broken two strings just switching between minor and standard.

A question about the slightly off tunings.

Why?

Is it a deliberate decision by the artist and if so, is it just an artistic thing or is there a valid musical reason for it? Or were they just out of tune when they recorded and nobody dared tell them? :)

I understand alt tunings and I understand the use of a capo, it's just these slightly sharp tunings that puzzle me.

I can normally tell if my guitar is a bit out of tune by ear, but in the case of Champagne Supernova, it's only 3 cents sharp, so if you haven't got perfect pitch would most people even notice?

This isn't a complaint about all the different tunings in the game, I'm genuinely curious as to the reason for them on the actual songs.

They want to sound a little bit "different". Don't have another reason.

Bought the pack and I'm really enjoying it, the slightly off tunings are a pain in the proverbial, but for someone who is just trying to break out of being a beginner and whose fingers are not particularly lightening fast yet it's a joy to get some slower melodic lead parts.

It probably helps that I'm from the UK and the "right age"/old enough to have bought the records and seen them live back in the day ;)

CrazedRacer
01-15-2014, 12:36 PM
Listened to the other songs. I liked them, but not enough to actually want to master them. Bought Champagne Supernova and Wonderwall and am loving them. Over the 2 week break from DLC (not a Weezer fan), I'm gonna work in Bandfuse a little to see if it was a complete waste of money or not.

It occurs to me, now that we're wrestling with Don't Look Back In Anger in the challenge: what about other instruments? It's easy enough to re-tune two or three guitars (and the bass), but a piano is a whole other kettle of fish to re-tune, and Don't Look Back In Anger clearly has one. Unless they used an electronic piano/keyboard, and you can program it to play sharp?

I always figured it was something the sound engineers did. "This sounds ok but if you speed it up a touch, it sounds much better."

It might be that the piano was mistuned sharp and the rest of the band tuned to the piano in studio. I know a piano tuner that used an old style fork, and said some older (or crappier) forks can get sharp due to a variety of reasons.

You've broken two strings? Are they the same strings? Are you using old strings maybe? Hardware problem with the guitar? I've been playing the same bass strings since the Bass pack came out and the only time I've broken strings on my guitars is when I was way way overbending a frustrating song or two.

You might have that looked in to.

Yeah, either they tuned to the piano, or it the tape was sped up by a hair. Before the modern age of cheap, plentiful, and accurate tuners; many bands tuned to each other. It makes playing along to old AC/DC albums somewhat irritating. I would think that the game tech could compensate for this if they wanted to. The game can dramatically slow down songs without changing pitch, so they should be able to slightly change pitch without slowing down (unless they are prohibited from doing that in their publishing agreements).

I don't mind re-tuning though. I never break strings either.

How do you guys like the authentic tone for wonderwall?

To me it sounds really bad. I don't judge on authenticity but how it sounds to me.
I like the original recording and in general I think the tones in Rocksmith sound good if not great - but this one, not so much.

(Most of) the chords are registering as correct, but they still sound weird - like out of a tin can and out of tune. Obviously if the chords register it doesn't automatically mean they sound 100% fantastic, but still I don't have this with any other song (The other Oasis songs included - they sound wonderful to my ear).

So I'm wondering if it's just personal preference.

cungar1001
01-15-2014, 06:42 PM
Yeah I don't like the Wonderwall Tone. I also don't like that it doesn't like my strum pattern which I think is pretty accurate. I get a MISS after like half the chord changes.

Any tips on how to avoid those random misses during rhythm strum sections?

Played wonderwall in the game and it didnt sound too bad, but tried it on my acoustic and those chords sounded awful with the capo, capo off and it sounds good again, dont get it, guitars both tuned correctly but totally different feel to the sound.

TBH I enjoyed playing acoustic along with a youtube vid more than in game.

Marauder359
01-15-2014, 08:10 PM
Wonderwall seemed strangely mixed for me. The crowd seemed awfully loud. I don't know that the tone was off as much as the overall mix between the track, the crowd, and us.

BazzTard61
01-16-2014, 04:29 AM
sometimes a song needs to be slightly speeded up or down after recording, sometimes, like nirvana, the guitarist is too zonked to notice or care he is out of tune, the bassist just tunes to him, saves all the drama hehe

Goooner1
01-16-2014, 08:54 AM
Had a guitar lesson, so asked my tutor :)

He said it could either be the band are tuned to each other, as BazzTard says above, or it could be a production decision, as a couple of people have said, they just decided it sounded better with a slightly raised pitch. Both of which seem perfectly logical, my curiosity is now satisfied :)

I must admit that I'm a bit miffed with all the different tunings. There's one thing I'd love - no hang on, two things. I'm on a PS3, so it may be different for users of the other consoles.

Firstly, I'd like a "let's play this in standard tuning" option so that there's no need to make microscopic tuning adjustments for each song.

Secondly, and going off topic completely, I would love an "I want it hard" option, i.e. you set a preference to give 100% difficulty over all songs without having to go into Riff Repeater all the time.

<resists saying "That's what she said">

While a global difficulty setting wouldn't hurt, it only takes a second to level up the whole song to 100% in RR. And after you do, it seems to permanently stick. Not the highest priority to spend dev resources on IMO.

As far as why there's no "let's play this in Standard tuning" option, it's because your guitar tuning would be off from the song which would sound very off and dissonant. Why don't we just pitch shift? Well we have in the past but pitch shifting songs requires artist permission and we can't just unilaterally modify their work like that. Some artists aren't comfortable with any modification of their work. Having true tunings allows us to preserve the song exactly how it was recorded which simplifies some of the approvals needed while also making it still sound okay for the player and not slightly off.

I wish mine did stick, otherwise I wouldn't be grumbling! For some it does, but not all. I can't see a pattern either - I've got >85% throughout so it's probably not that. As you say though, not the highest priority for the devs, just a "nice to have".

I understand that logic and I respect it, but unfortunately a song in a slightly non-standard tuning like A445 is almost an automatic "no buy" for me. Switching between E std, drop D and E-flat is enough of a bother already.

If you don't like retuning I would avoid playing the Eflat songs as they take the most time to tune. The A445 and the other A variants aren't that bad when tuning from E standard.

It never ceases to amaze me how the internet gives people the ability to complain so loudly about absolutely nothing. The number of people who moan about tuning flat or sharp is really surprising to me. It takes seconds, makes the song sound right and is extraordinarily easy. Tuning to drop D? Also easy. Sure going Eb can take a little time as well as the other more exotic tunings but if we didn't have all of these possibilities then there would be complaining about that. If you hate the tuning then don't buy or play those songs but don't fault Ubisoft for trying to deliver an accurate product when this is a teaching tool as much as a game.

instead of whining about the retuning, guess what i did? i went out and bought a few sets of strings 'just in case'.

but really, i blame ubisoft for this, and to top it all off, the game, the dlc, the bugs.... they expect me to buy a guitar too. un be lieeeevable!

Wonderwall seemed strangely mixed for me. The crowd seemed awfully loud. I don't know that the tone was off as much as the overall mix between the track, the crowd, and us.

I noticed this on some of the Smashing Pumpkins DLC too. I ended up just switching off venue mode.

It never ceases to amaze me how the internet gives people the ability to complain so loudly about absolutely nothing. The number of people who moan about tuning flat or sharp is really surprising to me. It takes seconds, makes the song sound right and is extraordinarily easy. Tuning to drop D? Also easy. Sure going Eb can take a little time as well as the other more exotic tunings but if we didn't have all of these possibilities then there would be complaining about that. If you hate the tuning then don't buy or play those songs but don't fault Ubisoft for trying to deliver an accurate product when this is a teaching tool as much as a game.

I write software to fund my Rocksmith DLC habit and am constantly told by end use that it would be nice if the software could do this or that. I guess I was just complaining about nothing and I wish to make a full and frank apology. I'm sorry. Just like Chris Evans was after Shaun Ryder and Black Grape covered "Pretty Vacant" on TFI Friday...

If that...it's really quick on these Oasis ones...just a very slight twist of the machine heads and you're off and playing.

<--- this noob here spent 5+ mins tuning for Wonderwall. Why? I tried to tune to E standard WITH the capo on! :rolleyes: :D

I wasn't specifically pointing fingers at any one person. Sorry if it seemed that way. If it were a single comment then who cares. A lot of people keep bringing up the tuning. Sure it would be sort of cool if there was an emulator that if your guitar was in E then it would just adjust for you like some pedals out there but IMO I prefer hearing the strings sound the way they are supposed to sound.

It's just the 3 of us and thousands of our closest personal friends. lol That's great. I spent the first few minutes ticked off that it wasn't telling me which fret to put the capo on until I realized the last song I had played was in drop D and it was just trying to get me back into E first. :D

As far as why there's no "let's play this in Standard tuning" option, it's because your guitar tuning would be off from the song which would sound very off and dissonant. Why don't we just pitch shift? Well we have in the past but pitch shifting songs requires artist permission and we can't just unilaterally modify their work like that. Some artists aren't comfortable with any modification of their work. Having true tunings allows us to preserve the song exactly how it was recorded which simplifies some of the approvals needed while also making it still sound okay for the player and not slightly off.

Instead of pitch shifting the whole song, or just allowing E-standard and having everything sound terrible, why not pitch-shift the guitar input? Similar to how emulated-bass works.

EDIT:
Oh, and I really don't mind re-tuning all that much (although E-flat/D-standard and back can get annoying). I had just noticed a third possibility that was missed.

Part of learning the guitar is ear training. Bastardizing the output from the guitar to bass, when they're the same note, just shifted for octave, is bad enough. Actually altering the note? What would be the point? Why not just have the game take any sound you produce and make it sound like the song? If your guitar isn't properly tuned for the song, and thus isn't putting out the proper sound for the song, you're naturally internalizing doing the wrong thing, getting the wrong result, and, in short, you aren't remotely helping yourself, your skill, or anything else other than the life of your strings... and, here, I thought the strings were here for us to use, not for them to box us into playing incorrectly and getting the wrong sound/feel from our instruments. It might seem like a benign request or notion, but that approach is definitely not something I'd ever want, nor should anyone who is actually trying to learn what their instrument and themselves can do.

Co-sign. It's no hassle if you are learning to play an instrument but a pain in the bottom if you are learning to play a game.

You must hate octave pedals.;) Valid points, but there are cases where a general pitch shift would be nice, just the same. Floating bridge guitars are the obvious one. But even the option for a pitch shift for when you have to tune sharp. I always get a bit uneasy doing that, although I haven't snapped one yet.

I actually make it part of the game (Drop D I mean). I twist the peg to get it to DD and will even tune to the A string to get it right before using the in game tuner. I've gotten to the point that I can reach up, twist to Std or DD and the game shows I'm right on the mark.

I've found that with the very small changes of tuning, especially from one sharp Oasis song to another sharp Oasis song I can often get away with not adjusting my guitar at all.
The in-game tuner is lenient enough that if I'm in say E Standard A449, it'll be close enough for A450 or even A443 sometimes.
