Im a beginner who has a base of trying to learn guitar a number of other times and hit walls.
I cruised through the first 2 events for the most part, struggling the more notes that get laid out there. I have over 80K points on each of the first songs.
Now I have taken a step back and am trying to learn the first few songs using Riff Repeater to 100%, as well as increasing my technique score. Having a lot of difficulty. Getting these songs to 100%.
Not sure if this is beneficial, or if I should be pressing through more events and content.
Has anyone figured out a good mix for learning with this tool? Push forward and backfill? Or completely stall out and fully digest what is given to you?
What I am thinking is to keep up trying to be a perfectionist on what is given. However, if I get the least bit disinterested, I can push on and uncover new songs.
The problem is the riff repeater. It is rough. There are certain sections where I just need one little part to keep repeating so I can figure out the most efficient fingering. The clunkiness of it and the 5 lives make it a grind.
I'm pretty much following the Rocksmith Recommends suggestions.
Keep rehearsing the songs in a set list until qualified and then play the gig and move on to the next.
That way, I've got to learn some of the other techniques that don't come up in the first couple of songs.
I had Angela come up as an encore at my first gig, I scored about 16,000 as I hadn't seen it before. I revisited a few days later having played some of the more difficult songs and learnt some other techniques and got 80,000. So whatever I'm doing, it must be working
Do whatever you have to, to remain interested and keep playing
Have to be careful with the RS Recommends Suggestions, a lot of time it wants me to do a riff with accelerator when i need to be leveling up a different riff with leveler. I usually play the song I'm trying to qualify for first then go into riff repeater to see which sections of the song need to be leveled, then grind it out, just like you said.
