    469ns and 97% ? Nice. I wish I could match that.
    Updated my score from today http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php...=1#post8321771
    I'll try again tomorrow.

    This turned out to be much more difficult than I thought--I feel like that poor dude in Euro Trip.

    Finally just about reached 80K...hoping for 90 tomorrow.

    Steel_Nirvana; Intermediate,88,376, 85%/84

    Okay, so here's my current score. Who picked this infernal song, anyway?

    Update. Interestingly, I had a run at 86% and a 111-note streak, but netted exactly 5K fewer points.

    This has got to be in my top 3 favorite on disc song arrangements. This is a spectacular choice.

    As much as it kicks my behind, I have to say it is a lot of fun to play. I just had no idea how complicated it would get once I leveled it up. I've got everything but the solo leveled, and, well, yikes is all I can say. Fun, but humbling.

    Good on all y'all who have mastered it and putting in 100K runs! Seriously.

    Ok, I updated my scores, and put in a MM score after all. Haven't topped Hobo's NMM score...

    For these runs I have my lag set at 0, and am not playing ahead of the beat.. I was wearing headphones though.

    I am finding that there are random chords that are dropping for some reason. I've had some success just playing softer, but still seeing some random chords drop off.

    I've got to say that the interlude is starting to come for me. About 7 days too late, but my daughter was spotting for me tonight and she said I actually hit a few notes on the Interlude! I think I got the little fill in the intro pretty well figured out, too.

    But, for some reason when I worked on the intro in RR, it seemed that the backing track and I were about 1 beat ahead of RR. Never had that problem before. . . Cannot imagine the guitar has anything to do with it and I haven't messed with the lag settings. Anyway, I got tired of it and once I felt like I had the fill figured out I just bounced out of RR.

    Updated my score - 75,042. Finally made it out of beginner! I don't think I'll get it any higher today so I'll be happy with it as it is. Great song and very fun to play, even if I can't get the tricky parts.

    I find that the open e/open a during the verses drops for me sometimes. It's kind of annoying.
