LATEST UPDATE 11/16 GENESIS CHRONICLES ANNIVERSARY 6 PACK

GUITAR: nsw1-6

BASS/VOCALS: EchoOfMystery

STANDARD KEYS: MrBurpler

 

'Seven Stones' wouldn't have sounded too out of place on From Genesis To Revelation, starting off as a sort of twisted take on an early Bee Gees ballad before heading into Moody Blues territory, with 'aahed' backing vocals and huge biblical chord changes which would have fitted well with the concept of that failed debut. The King Crimson mellotron is used to dramatic effect.

STANDARD KEYS/HARM2: Drihscol

 

UPDATE: Added venue and fixed drums.

 

The fairly straightforward 'Time Table' follows and works with nice, classical sounding Piano as the main backing for a commercial vocal melody and a strong chorus hook from Peter. Genesis would go on to have the first of many hit singles as part of the following years 'Selling England By The Pound' record. 'Time Table' wasn't a hit but proved Genesis could work equally well doing nine minute prog epics or shorter, more tightly melodic rock songs.

FRETS: nsw1-6

 

"Get 'Em Out By Friday," from 1972's Foxtrot, tells the whimsical sci-fi tale of Genetic Control, a group regulating "humanoid height" in order to fit more people into apartment complexes. But, as usual with prog-era Genesis, the words aren't too important. The track's true strength is its dynamic ensemble playing: Gabriel's throaty roar, Tony Banks' searing organ, Mike Rutherford's galloping bass guitar.

The instrumental piece "Wot Gorilla?"'s title: the gorilla in question could be Chester Thompson (even though he does not play drums on the album, he will join Genesis for the 1977 tour). While Thompson played in Frank Zappa's band (until the end of 1976), he earned the nickname "Gorilla" (the best-known reference to this can be found in Zappa's song "Florentine Pogen," where the lyrics include the line "Chester's Gorilla," the gorilla in question allegedly being a particularly ugly groupie infatuated with the drummer).

Another keyboard intro to an uptempo song with few surprises. Note the groovy little breaks after the choruses and the interesting rhythms in the fade-out. One can clearly hear the fine background choirs Collins would use frequently and successfully in years to come.

From a progressive rock fan's point of view, "The Lady Lies" is certainly the most exciting song on Genesis' And Then There Were Three. An allegory on a woman's power over a man, it tells the story of a knight who is lured by a demon lady to her house and enters, never to leave again. The song is written in a fast 12/8 time signature which feels like an even faster 3/4 at times. It is driven by a relentless and bouncy rhythm section reminiscent of old Genesis favorites, including a busy bass line.

I mean that if you own the officially released DLC songs "Higher Ground" and "Living for the City," that they, along with your custom should make 3 songs from that album, the number that appear album-sorted in game.

It's not a big thing, but I like seeing it.

There is a real embarrassment of riches with drum customs today. Awesome to see more from Bruce and Stevie, even if it's not stuff I'm familiar with.

Great update. Mastodon usually never disappoints on drums. I already had a custom of Capillarian Crest but don't remember if it had pro markers or not. I know a few of the Mastodon customs I have doesn't have pro markers so will be great to get rid of them with your versions.

Is the guitar chart on capillarian crest a new creation or a convert from an old chart?

I have a guitar/drum custom of it already, and I only want to play guitar, and I'm not sure if they're two different versions or you only changed the drums or something

circle of cysquatch doesn't seem to work, says the song data is unavailable/restarts the session. maybe that's just me though

the part before the solo in crystal skull with scott kelly is charted wrong but that's just a fanboy complaint, i doubt many will notice or care :). nice work though man, it's especially nice to have a single pedal version of capillarian crest since I'm still stuck with just one

circle of cysqatch is messed up. I had it working in single pedal but now its not. I'm going to work on it. I'll take a look at Crystal skull. Accuracy is paramount :)
