    BASS Challenge: BiWeek 13 - Queen - Killer Queen (Bass) March 16 - 29 All Welcome!!

    Welcome to the revamped Bass Challenges!!

    Here’s how it works:

    • Every two weeks we will select a song that will be the focus of our practice and play during the challenge. The goal here is to create a community environment where we encourage and help one another to improve/polish our bass playing.

    ANYONE can join in – from absolute beginners to bass aficionados.

    • While practicing in Learn-a-song and Riff Repeater will almost certainly be a part of challenge, each participant will eventually need to submit a score in Score Attack by the end of the challenge.

    • You can complete Score Attack at ANY level of difficulty: Easy, Medium, or Hard.

    • To participate, simply reply to this song thread with your level, score, accuracy, and note streak in the title. For example: HSA 1,000,000 | 98% | 389 NS | Next: Kiss - Love Gun.

    • Your song choice for the next challenge should also be listed in your title or post.

    • If you want, you can also post a screenshot from your Score Attack in your post.

    • If you improve your score at any time during the challenge period, simply revise your earlier post with the new score.

    • At the end of the challenge period, we will choose a new song randomly from all the participants’ choices.

    Our current challenge song is Queen - Killer Queen (Bass). This challenge will run from March 16th - 29th 2020.

    HSA 791,509 | 99.67% | 197 ns | Killing in the Name - Rage Against the Machine

    Initial attempt

    HSA 468,816 | 97.37% | 113 ns


    After a bit of practice.... I can flub that G-string run OK when I practise it, but always balls it up when I play the whole song

    HSA 682,644 | 98.68% | 189 ns


    More concerned with accuracy than points, so I'll call this a better score

    HSA 623,309 | 99.34% | 125 ns

    HSA 770,286 | 99.67% | 208 ns

    HSA 791,509 | 99.67% | 197 ns
