    GUITAR Challenge: BiWeek 20 – Queen - Keep Yourself Alive (Alt Lead) June 22 - July 5

    Welcome to the revamped Guitar 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 guitar playing.

    ANYONE can join in – from absolute beginners to guitar 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 - Keep Yourself Alive (Alternate Lead). This challenge will run from June 22nd - July 5th 2020.

    HSA 1,753,672 | 442 ns | 99.66% - next: The Boys Are Back in Town (L)

    HSA 1,753,672 | 442 NS | 99.66%. That's me done for the week - attempting to equal Halsb at the top of the leaderboard would seem to be a fruitless, perhaps Sisyphean, task.



    Next: Thin Lizzy - The Boys Are Back in Town (Lead)

    HSA 1,106,860 | 98.13% | 245 NS | Next: Joplin - Piece of My Heart



    So....my pick is listed as Big Brother and the Holding Company -- but everyone knows it's Joplin -- wonder why Rocksmith has it listed that way...

    sings_in_tune -- I think regular lead is harder (if I remember right....been awhile since I played that part) -- so you're good

    No one's catching MartynQ this week anyway....(nice score -- Halsb's got some voodoo going on)
