LATEST UPDATE 6/19 Mastodon Monday - The Ruiner

GUITAR/BASS: spiralshadow123

 

Brann Dailor: "The Ruiner" was written during the “Crack the Skye” sessions as well. That one and “Deathbound” were the two from those sessions that were the furthest developed songs that didn’t get used for “Crack the Skye” because they were just too heavy and too fast and crazy. “Crack the Skye” had taken on this whole other vibe so “Deathbound” got trapped in the studio. “The Ruiner” did not so we tracked it for this record. It’s a fast, crazy song. I wrote it on my Dictaphone just kind of humming the riffs. Bill’s got a riff in there as well. It’s just a classic, kind of heavy Mastodon song.

 

LATEST UPDATE 6/17 Soundgarden 2 pack

The actual Ty Cobb was a fantastic baseball player in the early 20th century, and purportedly had a terrible temper and was a huge racist piece of shit. According to the band, they just used “Ty Cobb” as place-holder of a symbol that everyone would know as a notorious piece of shit. It’s not really about baseball, the lyrics aren’t “I’m hitting/ fuck you all” it’s “hard-headed fuck you all.” Hey, at least he’s got a stubborn cardio-punk song to his name.

Centered on Cornell's enunciated, melodic vocals atop the music written by Cameron and Thail, the song even goes so far to credit someone for "harmonic guidance": Fred Chalenor. The song thematically picks back up the thread of fierce suns and dissolution. "The wreck of you / is the death of you all."

 

LATEST UPDATE 6/16 Frank Zappa - We Are Not Alone

5 LANE KEYS: MrBurpler

 

"We Are Not Alone" is an untypical instrumental piece included on the 1983 LP The Man From Utopia. Over a straight 4/4 beat, Frank Zappa wrote a simple and catchy saxophone melody (performed by Marty Krystall), followed by a variation on mallet percussion. The theme is played twice, without a guitar solo in between, which is highly uncharacteristic. 

 

LATEST UPDATE 4/29 Yes - Yours is No Disgrace

GUITAR/BASS/KEYS: sageamagoo

DRUMS: MrBurpler

 
Very much a whole group effort, “Yours is No Disgrace” features songwriting credit for all members. Indeed, while Yes fully embraced cover songs on the first two albums, they avoided them for this rebirth. Jon Anderson provided some of his most visual, yet compact lyrics up until that time on “Yours is No Disgrace.” Believed to be Yes’ first anti-war song, it conjures images of children entangled in a conflict of their parents.
 
Musically, “Yours is No Disgrace” jumps out of the speaker. With the blend of Bill Bruford’s snare drum, Steve Howe’s Gibson ES175 and Chris Squire’s Rickenbacker bass blasting off in stiletto harmony. Tony Kaye’s husky Hammond organ joins the march, then gives way to a Moog synthesizer break. Howe comes back with a fleet-fingered lead passage, which is supported by a moving, trebly bass run and snare-centered shuffle. Amazingly, “Yours is No Disgrace” takes the band to a new musical height and a not a word has been sung.
 
When Jon Anderson and the chorus of Chris Squire with Steve Howe come in with the first verse, you can’t help but believe this is how Yes was meant to sound. Eddie Offord’s mix verges on perfection, allowing each voice and instrument to be separate and distinctive yet not out of place. Chris Squire’s bass sound is like nothing else in rock, and keeps the song galloping along with Bill Bruford’s unique rhythmic contributions. Squire goes into a jazz-like bass walk, before another vocal break down.
 
Many bands would quit while they were ahead, but Yes forges on with an additional solo section and verse. The solo section deserves special mention, as Steve Howe evokes jazz and psychedelic elements in his Gibson-driven solo. His use of the volume pedal and distortion adds an additional element to the solo, and the section could be an entire song in itself. A Hammond/Moog-propelled final verse is added and before you know it almost 10:00 minutes has passed.
 
“Yours is No Disgrace” is a classic, and just one on several on The Yes Album.

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 :)
