thread and see how you get on. The only unknown I still have is how to optimise the in-game lag setting value after tweaking the ini file - they don't know anything about each other. There may not be a viable rule of thumb though, it may be just feel. I've set mine at 25 because that seems right to my eye/ear (For testing I find 'We share the same skies' to be a great test song because there are lots of single notes at a reasonably fast tempo). I don't bother setting the usb device sample rate every time though because I'm lazy.
If you say 'gullible' slowly it sounds like 'oranges'.
Got to 99% and noticed an open note I was not aware of in the first more complex section right after the part up the neck, oops!
I see what happened now. In riff repeater it's the first note of the next section which I was not practicing.
Ok got that part down then totally muffed the next section, lol. 456 streak...

Friday night: got it up to 101K, 98%, and a 388 streak. Which broke once I hit that first of two peak choruses towards the end.
Sat morn: spent plenty of time in accelerator to memorize those two peak choruses. Did a few runs, but I keep dropping silly notes in the main part of the song, and if it's early enough I usually restarted the run. It's quite odd: I could swear I hit every note in those parts, but every now and then I'll drop one regardless. Ironically, having dropped an early silly note, I managed "perfect phrase" for the first peak chorus (still missed something in the second), but did manage 102,812 now; still only 98%, which means I'm dropping just under a dozen notes in total.

Halleluja, I mastered it! will update and post picks later on.
Sat night: no score improvement, but did get a 405 streak.
The annoying thing with this song that when I stop and return to it after a while, even if just a few hours, I will inevitably mess up those peak choruses. So it seems before I try any full runs, I have to spend a bit of time in RR to 'refresh the memory' as to how those two parts go. At this rate, I am doubtful I will crack the elusive 100%. One step at a time, let's see if I can at least get 99...
