I am not surprised in the least.  lol  I honestly don't have the slightest idea as to what I am doing with vocals.  My hope is if I at least chart them, someone will step up and correct game play for them.

It's no biggie. Any chance we could get a no-pitched version for now until someone comes along to fix it? :)

Appreciate the first release but I would 100% recommend listening back to almost all of the instruments here, especially some of the guitar charting.

Could you be a little more specific other than 100% is wrong?

You're not 100% wrong; I think you misinterpreted that comment. If this is your first attempt at a full band you did exceptionally well (way better than me!). Some notes: on the drums, the intro is played on the ride, it then transitions to the closed hi hat later. I think, for the most part, it's pretty accurate. I'd have to sit and listen to really pull out everything, but I think you did well. For the guitar, you have some under charting going on and some jumping around on electric and acoustic that becomes disjointed. I'd stick with one for long stretches. Check out this sheet music to see where you could pick up some notes (even if you just watch it as a guide, you don't necessarily have to use it verbatim). All in all, don't be discouraged. This is a great and solid first full band chart. Judging from all the comments, you just hit on a beloved song (though, I'm not that familiar), so it gets a little more scrutiny than most.

Well I did just go through and rechart the guitar part, and to be honest, I do see where it had issues.  I did indeed combine some of the acoustic with the electric purposely to make the chart a little more involved but I do see where it went back and forth at times.  I will be uploading a guitar fix soon.  I didn't do the drums so I will pass those comments on to my collaborator to see.

 

I do appreciate constructive feedback, especially since this indeed was my first attempt.  Sorry if I didn't find the previous comment constructive, I found it more discouraging with no direction at all.  Don't know if it's timing, tempo map, wrong notes, overcharted, undercharted, etc...  from the comment.

 

Hopefully me new guitar chart makes him a little happier.  Compiling it now.

 

OK new verion is uploaded and new video posted

I can give you at least one piece of constructive feedback in terms of your guitar chart: you sometimes use a plucked note when it's more appropriate to use a hammer on. For example, at the 9-10 second mark, the yellow note that comes after the orange note should be a hammer on. This riff gets repeated a few times, so there are probably a few other instances where a hammer on is needed.

 

Nonetheless, this is a pretty good first effort. Your tempo map is tight --- which is half the battle --- and your drums seem solid.

Great feedback, to be honest I just let the game decide HO/PO. I will revisit to see about that.

Thanks

I recommend tracking down reputable guitar tab while authoring rock songs (e.g. www.ultimate-guitar.com). If you're not a guitar player, it'll help you figure out where real hammer-ons are taking place in the guitar track, while also pointing out bends, which can also be charted via the use of a hammer-on.

Is there a site similar to ultimate guitar that's free?

There are tons of free tab sites out there, but your mileage may vary. I've found that Ultimate Guitar features the most bells and whistles and is the most reliable --- it's well worth the relatively modest membership fee.

I wasn't trying to be discouraging, sorry if you took it that way.

I was trying to say that I think that the instruments just needed a bit of a proofread to make sure you charted them accurately.

 

To answer your confusion:

Tempo map / timing looked absolutely fine, it was just some of the note placement (or lack there of) on the guitar part that I found to be most noticeable.
