Made a little bit more progress today. Timing is getting better, still not quite nailing every note in the solos, but I've got them memorized so it's just a matter of getting my fingers in place on-time. 116K @ 93% accuracy, my goal is still 95% accuracy by tomorrow. And I'll be putting in a better MM run tomorrow as well, shooting for 200K. And my fingers are thrashed so that's it for tonight.
EDIT. Sunday morning: All the bending has dug-out a flap of skin at the base of a callous, so I clipped the flap and applied a couple layers of New Skin liquid bandage. Never used this stuff before and not sure how it will hold up, so this will probably limit my playing today, but will still try to get a couple runs in.

Love One Woman - Many Guitars!
Finally got my score into the 90s, but still can't master the solos; indeed I'm stuck at a miserable 70+% mastery for those sections.
94% accuracy was my best and on my highest-scoring run above, but I had a better streak of 102 on another run:-
And yeah, what's with the captchas?
Updated my score again. That's probably it for this week. My kids aren't in bed til close to 9:00, which is cutoff time here in the Pacific
Would have really liked to get the solos maxed, but my fingers couldn't take much riff repeatering last night - and it would have taken alot of riff repeatering. I think I got them about as high as I could, given my skill level. Really happy with my score, and the 95% accuracy though.
Ok, I didn't actually get a chance to play yesterday, and might not get a chance today, but I uploaded some scores I got earlier this week.
I've been focusing mostly on Combo 2, have gotten it to 98%, but not yet 99% - I think I now know which notes I'm missing though.
Latest scores are here.
BTW, Nice score - I don't think I'll be able to catch that one but I'm gonna try!
Well, my finger tips finally tapped-out, application of liquid skin only lasted for 3 runs today, so I'm done. Will probably have to take 1 or 2 days off to let them heal up. Was able to improve my MM score to 199K, and with fresh fingers I know I could have hit my goal of 200K.
In general really happy with my progress this week. I got pretty close on those solos and I know with a fresh set of fingers and a little more practice I can get even better on this song, so I'll be coming back to it in the near future.
