LATEST UPDATE 12/22 - Christmas 4 pack

BASS/VOCALS: EchoOfMystery

STANDARD KEYS: MrBurpler

 

The song is a celebration and description of activities associated with the Christmas season, focusing primarily on get-togethers between friends and families. In a 2005 interview, Williams discusses how The Andy Williams Show figured into his recording of "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year": "George Wyle, who is a vocal director, who wrote all of the choir stuff and all of the duets and trios and things that I did with all the guests, he wrote a song just for the show – I think the second Christmas show we did – called "Most Wonderful Time of the Year". So I did that, you know, every Christmas, and then other people started doing it. And then suddenly it's become – not suddenly but over 30 years – it's become a big standard. I think it's one of the top 10 Christmas songs of all time now."

"Please Come Home for Christmas" was released in 1960, by the American blues singer and pianist Charles Brown. It later covered by the Eagles in the mid 70's but this version from the Home Alone soundtrack will always be my favorite.

"The Night Santa Went Crazy" is an original song performed as a style parody of "Black Gold" by Soul Asylum, with melodic references to that song, "Mama I'm Comin' Home" by Ozzy Osbourne and "I Believe in Father Christmas" by Greg Lake.

Way, way back in 1986, Weird Al put his hallmark spin on a classic holiday carol. It was a tongue-in-cheek (if darkly ominous) response to the heightening of The Cold War under the Ronal Reagan administration. As we near the Christmas season, and with many fearing the US could be on the brink of nuclear war with North Korea, it seems the perfect time to revisit this twisted little ditty.

GUITAR/KEYS: wingsoveramerica

VOCALS: EchoOfMystery

 

By the '70s, Motown artist Marvin Gaye was bored with "the Sound of Young America." When he wanted to go more in the direction of message music, label founder Berry Gordy wasn't pleased. It didn't help matters that Gaye had a reputation around the label of being "difficult," making him somewhat of a pariah among the talent pool. One of the key tracks for Gaye's new musical path was a song that was co-written by Four Tops member Renaldo Benson and Motown staff songwriter Al Cleveland. As Gaye worked on the song that would become "What's Going On," he angrily reflected on the stories told to him by his brother Frankie Gaye who was a Vietnam vet. The melancholy alto sax line was blown by Eli Fountain and, like the song itself, it seemed as a kind of aligned signal that the upbeat '60s were giving way to the more pessimistic '70s.

“Grace” might not be a shred-fest like Van Halen’s “Eruption”, but it gives a primer for what to expect with Buckley’s versatile guitar playing. The riffs aren’t in your face but are more subtly inventive with rapid arpeggios and jittering chords. Buckley never stays in the same place for too long on “Grace”. He forgoes typical verse, chorus, verse song structure and instead opts to chart new territory in each section between a refrain of “Wait in the fire.” As he madly screams and makes soulful vocal embellishments near the end as the guitar moves frantically about, it’s a great moment to put your face in your hands and say to yourself, “Life isn’t fair.”

This funk and soul song reached #1 on the R&B chart and #6 in the Hot 100 in 1968. The song is particularly historical because of its influence on the careers of the Jackson 5. Michael Jackson was the lead vocalist on the group’s audition tape to Motown’s Berry Gordy in 1968. The song, of course, was “I Got the Feelin’.”

“Cold Sweat” is a groundbreaking moment if only for the fact that it ushered in the entire funk era. Its intrigue, however, lies within the fact that it falls into the lineage of jazz motifs created by Miles Davis. Funk became the music of the day, only thanks to the music of the past. Its contributions to the future can be found on most popular records today. On this record, Brown shouts the classic line “give the drummer some,” a nod to his longtime collaborator, the renowned drummer Clyde Stubblefield. This seemingly routine call led to a drum solo that would define the concept of “breaks,” a model that not only influenced dance music of the era, but ultimately led to the sampling dynamics of hip-hop music.

Not just “funky” anymore … this is pure funk. You know the thing: Deep thunderous bass setting up a single chord groove, two or three guitars trying to outdo one another as the catchiest rhythmic hook and horns assertively emblazoning their melodic blasts on top. JB himself weighs in with his usual grunts and screeches, mixing raps on dancing with some political commentary.

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 :)
