    I know that feel. I keep hearing the song echo in my head and I see colored rectangles flying by. You could definitely push up past 65k if you work on cleaning everything up though.

    Am I the only one struggling on this section here? I feel like it runs past me as a flail my fingers around.

    Well, I guess I'll throw my name in the hat. Better late than never.

    DIV III, not leveled

    So I had my guitar, laptop, and cable, but no pick. Decided to get everything level-bugged up for a run later. I actually managed to get Solo 1 to 80%, master solo 3, and master the riff with the parts on the both D strings, without the pick. Pretty cool.

    I need to spend a little bit of time in accelerator with the solos, especially the end of solo 2, just to know what frets I need to be on in some of these places. I could see myself hitting 93% if I get time tomorrow. For now, 91%.

    Yeah, it's fast. Take it into accelerator. It's almost like a ho/po.

    After that 6th fret note, there's a 3rd fret note before the 5-3-5-3-0-3. Believe it or not, it's a lot easier with that note, everything flows a lot better. Take it into accelerator at 100% notes and 50% speed and your fingers will get the hang of the riff. It's still insane in the song though.

    I actually didn't get a chance to play this today, spent about an hour with the bass challenge and played the Nightmare bass arangement instead. I will def be trying to squeeze a few more points out of this in the morning.

    Yup...I struggled with it to until I bugged it and slowed it down. That's alway been a gripe of mine with the game....it just doesn't "n.ock" the notes in the most ideal order.

    BINGO! I didn't realize I was missing one note, yea, that does make a difference, I'm still slow but it does flow better, thanks!
