I'm starting to get it. 91k, over 200 note streak and from 83/83% to 89%. I think the difference is I'm starting to get the D string slides and notes. I'm also getting credit for all the crazy stuff on the E string in the verse, I think the game's a little lenient there. Much appreciated.
Decided to enter my afternoon run of 91829/216/88
I have to say that on Monday I never thought I would get to 90k. Parts that I was flailing on earlier in the week slowed down to the point that my fingers were in place and I was waiting to strike the string with the pick. My abilities are definitely improving with this game, I'm very thankful for that.

Thanks Nyarlah and VERY nice job on the video! The sound and format are fantastic! I think a lot of folks will find that very helpful.

So, I was basically done with this for the week but wanted to give it one last effort. I braced myself in tight against my desk, got close in to the monitor and set to it. Managed to get my best run yet! Beat my score, % and NS all in one! The power of the mind helped with that one! Lol. So, NOW I am done! I have to say, I am not as big a fan of the newer A7X stuff after "City of Evil" but this song has grown on me this week. Unless it was just hearing it play 30 times. I think my biggest problem with these super fast solos is that I need to memorize them and look at the fretboard. I've gotten so used to not looking down and I just fumble through them. Props to Nyarlah and NSmith and anyone else who got high %. It took me all week to gain 4% on this song. Whew. Pic here.

Hit my accuracy target of 80% and updated my score.
Feel like I've easily got another 10k in me if I didn't make silly mistakes, but it's too frustrating. Every time I do a play through I screw up a section that I usually ace, then take it into riff repeater then on the next playthrough screw up/forget an entirely different section. I suppose I should probably run through each section in riff repeater before trying a play through. But after an hour in riff repeater (and the bloody menus!) I can't be bothered to actually play the song anymore. Some kind of system to work on memorising things properly would help. At least just writing down which fret for the start of each section instead of trying to sightread it during a playthrough.
Does anyone do anything like that, or have any kind of method for memorising the song beyond just time spent?

Man Audrey's video blows my mind. I'm looking at those tiny little fingers and thinking how on earth are they doing that lol.
That's a massive score, a nosehair away from being enough to win the division above even . Well played!

Update my score for the week.
Great job Audrey! Very well played!
I will tally the scores in 90 minutes, so everyone get your score in!
