I like this song and would like to be able to play it, but obviously my skills (and maybe attitude ) are not where they need to be to figure it out without better spoon-feeding from RS. Maybe I'll try it again in about a year. LOL!

    As usual I appreciate all the playing tips and helpful comments the experienced players have provided in this thread.
    I'm willing to write out how I position my fingers for this one if you're hitting a brick wall. I don't know 100% if it's the 'best' way to do it, but it works for me, and others can feel free to chide me if I'm breaking any technique rules

    The thing is, this does require dexterity in your pinky finger, so even though it's only a couple of chord positions it's definitely not trivial...

    Oh, in the conversation I had with him I got the impression that you guys had a similar setup... Well, maybe HDMI isn't the deal... If someone else has both connection types it would be good to know if they have noticed any difference.

    Well, let me know if you do find a difference when he does come up to your place. I really want to figure this out.

    For video, I've tested HDMI and component both and see no difference. I run both through my A/V receiver, though, and I'm pretty sure the receiver up-converts the component video...so it might end up a wash. But video latency should be more a function of your display's draw time than what type of cable you're running.

    I still hold hope that one day.... one day I will understand how groove and early groove works, and how it ties into AV setup, and the video lag setting.

    One day...

    I emailed Ubisoft Support regarding this and to get an overall understanding of the scoring system. If I get anything, I'll definitely let you all know.

    Yeah, my guess is that UBI support won't give too much insight into this. We have had RS-Matt come on and make a few comments on groove, but not enough to really unravel the mistery around early groove, the timing windows for each, and how it interacts with AV setup and lag calibration. His initial comment is that it 'should' be lag independent, but he also stated that it should be relative to the notes you've hit. That is not my experience though, so I am thinking there is more to it.

    Thanks. I seem to be christening it on a song that is pretty tough for me. I guess trial by fire.

    I just noticed that I have a blister on my pinkie, from this song. That has never happened in all my years of playing. And I have tried to incorporate my pinkie into most playing. I used it the last 2 weeks for sure. If it turns into a callous that will be pretty cool, and I'll finally have a guitar pinkie.

    Thanks for the offer, but I'm so far behind this week I think I'll just sit this song out. Maybe further down the road when I've got a better comprehension of chord shapes and much better finger dexterity (and guitar pinkie like RCole ) I can come back to this arrangement. I'll look forward to next week's challenge song.
