UPDATE NOTES:
This chart was originally based on the work of nsw1-6 but it's been completely overhauled with a new tempo map, audio source, venue, redone bass and drums as well as pro keys finally added. If you grabbed the old don't hesitate to pick up the new one.

 

ABOUT THE SONG:

"Take Five" was the third track on the album Time Out, recorded in 1959. That was the year Miles Davis and Gil Evans introduced the jazz audience to modal music with the landmark album Kind of Blue, John Coltrane released Giant Steps and Art Farmer and Benny Golson formed their first jazztet. A lot of new things were happening in jazz in those days, but rhythmically, the music was still being played mostly in four-four time. Brubeck had always been interested in polyrhythm and polytonality. The first theory is what drives African music; the second is tied closely to classical. Brubeck had been playing in odd time signatures back in the late 1940s, but it wasn't until he returned from a trip to Turkey in 1958 that he thought about doing an entire album in different time signatures, like six-four, three-four, nine-eight and, in "Take Five," five-four.
 
"Take Five" includes one of the most thrilling drum solos ever recorded, a 2:20 master class in percussive accentuation, colorization and structure. Unlike the rest of Time Out, which was composed by Brubeck, the tune was written by alto saxophonist Paul Desmond. "It was never supposed to be a hit," Desmond said later. "It was supposed to be a Joe Morello drum solo." Morello had joined the quartet in 1956 over Desmond's initial objection: the saxophonist was concerned that Morello's muscular style would jar with his own lyrical approach. Desmond was won over, and when the composer royalties for "Take Five" started pouring in, he must have been relieved Brubeck had stood his ground and insisted on hiring Morello.

Mixing a variety of incisive riffs, trampling beats and rapidfire vocals, “Reborn” is a song for intense cardiovascular exercise – providing you’re willing to risk having your aorta burst open midsong. The lyrics are about a witch sentenced to die, but who has “signed the book of red,” promising immortality; hence, the song title.

There is something about Bruce Springsteen’s “Incident on 57th Street” that makes it ethereal. How you can pen such a profound and meaningful song in your early 20s, as Springsteen was when he released 1973’s The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle, is nothing short of phenomenal. It’s that cinematic style of writing he engaged in so early on and let a story unfold that makes us feel like we are there, living it with the characters, Spanish Johnny, and Puerto Rican Jane.
 
The whole freaking song is a masterpiece. From the delicate piano in the opening bars, and the bending notes on that Telecaster, to the lyrics, music, imagery, and storytelling, all of it is nothing short of spectacular. And that solo to take the song out, absolutely incredible. If the song isn’t considered out of this world, it should.

Recorded for the 1998 movie Pleasantville, Apple’s rendition of the Beatles’ “Across the Universe” is easily her best cover. The song takes on a placidity that suits the strange nuclear family at the heart of the film, with Fiona’s serene “jai guru deva om” chants almost serving as a balm. The Paul Thomas Anderson-directed video is also a treat: Apple walks peacefully through a riot that takes place late in the film, her calm at odds with all the chaos. “Nothing’s gonna change my world” indeed.

Oh heck, I just realized Too High gives album sorting to Innervisions!


what do you mean?


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 :)

also shows him playing capillarian crest's bridge which is badass as hell

Thanks for the great new stuff. :) One quick thing: please don't use the Convert badge for conversion from customs, that badge is intended for songs converted from other official games/releases. ;)
