12.11: First full band collaboration released! And it's quite possibly my favorite song of all time. Top three for sure.
If you've wondered why Thunder Road, one of Springsteen's best songs (and my personal favorite) was suspiciously missing from 3 different Bruce packs... well here's your answer. A full band custom was in the making, collaboration with ejthedj, and now it's ready! Make sure you get it!
I would like to say a huge thank you to ejthedj, who done the majority of the work, including an absolutely insane (seriously, insane) pro keys chart. I've had a blast charting the drums (all difficulties) to this one.
Hey, and welcome to Yaniv’s drums workshop! where I post many drum customs
My songs are drum only, expert only.
Why drum only? Well, basically I play Rock Band for drums. I suck at guitar and can’t play anything, let alone chart a song. And I use Phase Shift so no vocals for me. So it’s only drums.
Why expert only? Well, I made those for myself and honestly preferred to chart more songs than chart other difficulties. I have no clue how much demand there is for those charts, and if people will want lower difficulties (most of the songs aren’t hugely difficult anyway). If there’s demand for other difficulties for certain songs, let me know and I’ll do it.
So drum customs are cool, but full band ones are much cooler so that’s why I’m looking for collaborators.
If you liked those songs or style and would like to chart guitar/bass/anything else – contact me and we’ll make a cool full band custom! If you need someone to do drums for your project (in a similar musical style), let me know, maybe I’ll be interested
One last thing. All those songs have been through several rounds of testing, and I’ve tried my best to make the charts as true as possible to the drum track. Of course, I’m not perfect, so if you’ve found any mistakes – whether the chart or the tempo mapping - please let me know and I’ll gladly fix it!
So enough talking, here are the customs:
Bruce Springsteen Classics 02
Second Springsteen classics pack, and this time it represents several decades and not just the 70's! "The Promised Land" is another 70's classic from the Darkness album (see more below...), "No Surrender" covers the 80's, while "Land of Hope and Dreams" is an epic 7-minutes long fan favorite, debuted live in the 90's and finally released in 2012's "Wrecking Ball". All songs are a blast to play, so have fun!
Springsteen's Darkness at the Edge of Town pack
Even more Springsteen! And the second of the "classic albums" packs (after David Bowie's Low), it's a 3-pack of classics from the Darkness at the Edge of Town album. "Candy's Room" will test your endurance with a series of 16th notes (and it's a great song too!), "Prove it All Night" (my favorite of the bunch) is just a blast to play, while "Darkness" is a classic, powerful power ballad. With "Badlands" and "The Promised Land", I've now charted half of the album already. Hmmm...
The Replacements 01
First customs in the database for the best punk band of all time! In my opinion of course. Anyway, each of their three classic albums is represented here. "Kiss Me On the Bus" (from "Tim") is a brilliant jangle-pop tune from, "Favorite Thing" (from "Let it Be") is full on, fast and loud punk (honestly I can't play it properly, it's too fast for me!) and my favorite Replacements song, "Can't Hardly Wait" (from "Pleased to Meet Me") is just a beautiful touching yet upbeat tune.
Bruce Springsteen Classics Pack 01
A pack of 3 absolute classics from Bruce. From the rousing "Badlands", to the chilly and beautiful "River", to the epic, amazing "Backstreets" - those are absolutely essential tunes IMO.
Neil Young Rock Classics Pack
A three pack of great classic rockers by Neil. None too difficult, but fun to play! And Powderfinger chart keeps changing all the time (Seems like the drummer is figuring out his parts live...), which makes it quite annoying to chart but nice to play
Nick Cave 01 Pack
Making his (As far as I’m aware) rhythm games debut (including customs), a three pack from alternative rock genius Nick Cave, and all three songs are incredibly fun to play! “Get Ready For Love” and “There She Goes, My Beautiful World” are both rocking, upbeat tunes with strong drumming from the “Abattoir Blues” album, while “The Ship Song” – one of Nick’s masterpiece – is a romantic ballad with surprisingly tricky drums.
Neil Young Deep Cuts Pack
Another underrepresented artist, it’s a three pack of underrated tunes from Canadian rock genius Neil Young. “Mellow My Mind” is possibly my favorite Neil Young tune, it’s beautiful and it’s great to play. “Revolution Blues” is probably the most difficult song I’ve done – with a difficult, everchanging drum pattern. And “Winterlong” is a beautiful, lighter tune with amazing harmonies and it’s fun to drum along!
David Bowie’s ‘Low’ Pack
Bowie’s hits are heavily represented, but his experimental songs not so much. Here’s a three pack from the ‘Low’ album – best album of the 70’s according to Pitchfork. “Sound and Vision” is an obvious classic, “Breaking Glass” is short, quirky and fun, while the hugely underrated “Always Crashing in the Same Car” includes quite a lot of fun drum fills.
The best britpop band in the world (Sorry Blur and Oasis!) with this great three pack. Two classics from the first album, both really fun on drums, and my favorite Suede song - the huge anthem "Trash". Have fun and make sure you sing along!
That’s it so far, but rest assured – a lot more are coming soon!
Any feedback would be hugely appreciated!
