MRBURPER'S Customs!

 

Thank-you and welcome to my customs thread!

All of my customs will be posted here and in the database as well. I do my best to make my customs as good as they can be, so you can at the least you can expect legacy instruments, drum animations. however I will chart all the instruments to a song if I can (including harmonies). You're welcome to point out chart errors, song requests and the like. I also have a WIP thread that you can check-out which will give you an idea of what songs I'm working on (although that thread doesn't get updated very often).

Latest Release:

Rush and Robbie Robertson! A Canadian 2-fer to Celebrate Canada Day! EH?!?

Happy Canada Day everyone! And to celebrate, I wanted to share two customs from our boys up north here! I really enjoy these songs (for very different reasons) and I hope you do too! So let's get started!

Famous for being a member of "The Band", this song is one of the more well-known from his solo career.

 

If I had to describe this song in one word, the word I would use is "sexy", and while I'm not sure if I can fully explain myself- let me try.

I guess a good place to start with his voice, Robbie Robertson doesn't do that much actual singing on this track as all the verses are just him talking. Apparently they tried to have him sing the verses but it didn't turn out too good, lucky for us- the sing is better for it! His voice super smooth during the chorus and the bridge yet during the verses is sounds a bit more harsh, like it has a bit more edge to it. And the lyrical content describes this, verbal-dance i'll call it, between him and this woman in the song. I can't quite put my finger on it, and I haven't dived deep into the meaning behind the lyrics, but there does seem to be some, "sexual tension" lets say.

 

And this of course is supported by the instrumentation, let's start with the drums. the use of hit-hat and ride bell, and putting the beat accents not only on the 8th notes (as supposed to the 2 and 4 like in a typical rock/pop song), not all the accents are on the snare. In fact there's a rotation of snare, low-tom, hi-tom. It's very creative drumming which helps to build this tension without it getting in the way on the song.

Rounding out the rhythm section is the bass part played by Tony Levin (King Crimson fans might recognize that name). His bass playing is just super smooth, not flashy, it just "slides" right into place exactly where it needs to be, with little flourishes to keep it interesting.

Finally there's the keyboard part which is mainly a dotted 1/4 note pattern. The dotted pattern works because it makes the song feel a lot slower then it actual is, letting you hear the other instruments and giving it a relaxed feeling.

 

This song -while not being too challenging- is fun on all instruments, and a song I'm little surprised took so long to be made.

Arguably the most cathartic Rush song... at least in relation to Neil Peart, the song is about that feeling of processing difficult and troubling emotions- Neil described is best with an analogy that went something like:

 

"When a baby is restless you rock it too sleep, you take it for a drive to calm the baby down"

 

It's like the adult version of that. Neil describes it better then I could (I mean he did write the lyrics) and the documentary "Beyond the Lighted Stage" goes into more detail about that aspect of his life. I guess I'll leave it there.

 

As with many songs off Vapor Trails, They only played it on the Vapor Trails tour, which is a shame, I really like a lot of those songs from Vapor Trails. Luckily for their R40 Tour they brought back some songs and even played "How It Is"- a song never before played live. Sadly, Ghost Rider wasn't included, but at least it made it on Rush In Rio!

 

I want to thank ejthedj for providing me the RPP for the remixed version, which made charting this a whole lot easier! Thank you!

 

The "Original Mix" amendment doesn't appear in-game

 

That's all for now! Have a great Canada Day eh! Enjoy your Molson Canadian while grilling up some burgers and hot dogs! (and playing these customs of course!) there's plently more down the pipe, with King Crimson, Rush updates, Genesis and ELP in the future!

New authors are very much welcome but please credit every single author you took work from to republish your versions or we'll be forced to close the thread: credits are the only currency on this Web site and it's essential that you properly recognise the people who put in the hours to create the songs you have added instruments to.

ItalianStalion charted Caravan. I released that one already but didn't make hardly any changes to his original chart. Just added Pro Tom markers. Curious to check out your version.

What happened to 'Caravan', it is not available for download. Also, there are 2 files with the same name: CircleofCircles-Apollo.

Thanks.

Yes!!! Cinderella Man completes the Rush album A Farewell To Kings into full band :excited:
Just Xanadu and A Farewell To Kings Are part of C3 releases and Close To The Heart is already in RB (Without keys).
Cygnus and Madrigal are full band also but only on expert difficult.

P.S: The orignal authors of Cinderella Man are Tadracing99 and Farottone, thank you very much

You are awesome for charting a Bo Burnham song. I would love it if you charted more from him. He is hilarious and his songs sound so fun to play in Rock Band.

It's also great to see another finished Rush song. If my library is any indication then this makes the 87th Rush song to feature a full band (charted with expert difficulty or more).

This is the first upgrade. The original con file didn't have a bass part so i added one! I believe this makes "A farewell to kings" album full band, so enjoy!

Original charters; Tadracing99, Farottone


FYI the drums animations are inactive

Rush Hemispheres album is (i believe) now full band with all difficulties done!

I was working on these songs for a while, specifically hemispheres for a long time.

 

I don't know who the authors for the individual songs are, so i'm just gonna give credit to people who worked on the whole album.

 

original carters:

Farottone, Puppetz, Trunks252, Drihscol, DoNotPassGo and Ejthedj.

 

Hemispheres:

So i'm gonna be working on a lot of rush upgrades, my goal is to have every rush song be a full band with EMH difficulties!

 

i'm also working on a FB custom for whiplash for you jazz guys!
