Hello, I'm Yaniv and welcome to my workshop!

You can now find all the songs I've ever released (or collaborated on) in a neat, ever-grown Spotify playlist!

Right here!

 

New releases are on top, and below you'll find all the songs I've done neatly organized for your enjoyment :)

Have fun!

Guitar by HighFlyingBirds, thanks!

 

One of the standouts on a standout album, and certainly one of the most English songs on this very English album. "This is a Low" is one of Blur's most beloved tunes. It's been a mainstay in the band's repertoire and history; frequently a concert climax, closing among others their legendary 1995 Mile End show; voted by fans to be included in Glastnbury Anthems DVD; Was the only non-single to be included in their "Best of Blur" compilation. It also featured very heavily in their reunion, performed in their first show at NME awards, in the Brits awards, closing the main set in their legendary Glastonbury 2009 concert, as well as both live DVDs released since, "All the People" and "Parklive" (documenting Hyde Park performances in 2009 and 2012 respectively). It was described by critic Rob Harris as a "key masterstroke" and "close to perfection".

 

Musically, it's an epic ballad, with a rousing chorus and epic guitars all over. There's a guitar solo - two solos at once, in fact - and it's a classic anthem. Musically, it's extremely British - The song's lyrics reference a low-pressure area of weather hitting Britain. The lyrics are based on the Shipping Forecast, with references made to the various areas in England, such as Biscay, Thames, Dogger, Tyne, Forth, Cromarty, Forties, Blackpool and Malin - all in two verses, which is pretty impressive!

Thanks HighFlyingBirds for charting guitar, drums and helping with bass!

 

"And it looks like we might have made it, looks like we've made it to the end..."

 

A fitting tune for my last Chart-a-thon song! "To the End" was the second single from the "Parklife" album, and another one of Blur's signature tunes. It features Stereolab member Lætitia Sadier with some French spoken words, and an entire orchestral arrangement (charted here to keys). It's a beautiful, epic, ballad with a rousing chorus by Damon Albarn, and it's one of the band's most emotional songs. Lyrically, it takes a break from the English themes and focuses on a relationship falling apart, reminicisng on the good times while documenting the bitter end. "Been drinking far too much, neither of us means what we say". There's also another version on the song, sang fully in French, but here is the English original. Hope you like it!

Thanks egead for starting this custom and letting me finish it! The guitar and drum charts are heavily based on his work.
 
"One of the greatest songs of the century" -Rolling Stone Magazine
13th best track of the 2000’s – NME
20th best track of the 2000’s – Pitchfork
 
I could go on and on. The Walkmen are a great band (and NOT a one hit wonder), and this is their trademark song for a reason. Pure anger, fury, energy, nastiness, and those drums – man, those drums. They were the ones who began it all, as apparently drummer Matt Barrick just messed around with quick disco beats, resulting in a jam which created this song. The lyrics were written on the spot, in five minutes. And that jam has changed the fate and the lives of this band. It became huge, and only got bigger in time. It’s featured on the soundtracks of Major League Baseball 2K7Dirt 2, and True Crime: New York City. Simply speaking, it’s pretty much the ultimate indie-rock banger.
 
Challenge for drummers: play this one and Springsteen’s “Roulette” in a row for a serious disco beats stamina test.

Bruce Springsteen 11-Pack!!

Another huge project finally out there. Thanks ejthedj and AJFOne23!

An all time punk classic, this is the debut single of Northern-Irish punk band The Undertones. Ever since it's release, it became a hugely popular song, a lot of it thanks to legendary radio broadcaster John Peel. Peel loved that song so much, he awarded it 28 stars on the scale of 1 to 5 (which he otherwise never broke). He played it twice in a row in his show - another thing he's never done before or since - with the explanation that "it doesn't get any better than this". And eventually, he asked for the opening line of the song - "Teenage dreams so hard to beat" - to be engraved on his tombstone, which it was.

 

The EP was supposed to be the band's swan song, as they were on the verge of breaking up - but the huge success kept them together up until 1983, and they made 4 full-length albums. True classic right here.

Thanks HighFlyingBirds and MrPrezident!

When "The Whole of the Moon" was released, it wasn't initially a big success. But gradually it worked itself to a legendary status, and now it's not only The Waterboys best known song, it's a huge classic - covered by everyone from Prince, to the Killers and Fiona Apple (whose version appears in the show "The Affair").

 

The Waterboys are a very interesting band, with a sound that ranges from Celtic-tinged folk-rock to widescreen alternative anthems - this song definitely belongs to the latter category. An epic song inspired by Prince (who ended up covering it), "The Whole of the Moon" mixes a classic but not cheesy 80's sound, with trumpets, saxophone and musical layers. Nobody's really sure who it was written about - Songwriter Mike Scott said "It's not a specific person. It's more a type. The point of the song was to illustrate how much more there could be to learn than we had ever guessed. And so, I used that format of songwriting, as if addressing a more knowledgeable or wise being", but later said it "might be" about Jimi Hendrix or Syd Barrett, so who knows?

 

Anyway, it's a classic song and an absolute blast to play in RB. So have fun with it!

Now out - Neil Young 8-pack!

It's been a huge project for me so it's great to get it out there. Thanks Banshee, HighFlyingBirds and SpinDoctor for assisting. Hope you like it!

So, after previously charting "My Kind of Woman" and "Freaking Out the Neighborhood" from his "2" album, it's time for more Mac - and this time we'll move to the next album, "Salad Days"!

 

"Let Her Go" (which, by the way, is completely unrelated to the Passenger hit) is one of the highlights of this record. Mac pleads and advice with a friend not to mislead his girlfriend - "Tell here that you love her, if you really love her/But if your heart just ain't sure, let her go".  Musically, it has everything we know and love from Mac - great guitar lines all over, funky bass, some grooving drums and his great melodies. It's another one of those catchy, fun and beautiful songs Mac is known for.

"Alone Again (Naturally)" is a special song. It's one of those touching songs that means so much to so many people around the world. It tells a rather sad tale of a lonely, suicidal man being left at the altar and then telling the listener about the death of his parents. The lyrics are absolutely simple, direct and heartbreaking, and musically, this is one of the most beautiful songs I know. It is - quite surprisingly maybe - not autobiographical, as in fact O'Sullivan's mother was alive when he wrote this song, and he barely knew his real father, who also mistreated his mother. But despite that, this song have touched millions around the world, and it's a privilege to bring it to Rock Band.

 

It was also a big commercial success - the single spent six weeks, non-consecutively, at No. 1 on the United States Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Billboard ranked it as the No. 2 song for 1972. In Casey Kasem's American Top 40 of the 1970s, it ranked as the fifth most-popular song of the entier decade. And it's been known as a classic ever since. Even if you don't recognize the title, give it a listen - you probably know it.

 

It's also amazing to play in rock band - maybe surprisingly for such a sad song. It features amazing - absolutely amazing - classical guitar playing by Big Jim Sullivan, a little legend in his own right who played with Donovan, Cliff Richard, Tom Jones and many others. The arpeggios all through the song are beautiful and challenging, and the guitar solo is amazing. The chord progression is surprising and beautiful and you'll love playing it on keys - with a bit of french horn and strings thrown in too. Bass and drums are basic but solid. Just watch the video preview here (thanks MrPrezident for the preview video!).

It was a pleasure to chart it!

"Out of My Head" is a classic 90's ballad from Fastball (also known for "The Way"). The second single from their 1998 album "All the Pain Money Can Buy", it's a full-band piano ballad with some gospel influence and some creative drumming. The song has a rather unusual structure - starts with a traditional verse-chorus, but there's never a second verse. Instead, there's a beautiful guitar solo and than a repeat of that infectious, brilliant chorus.

 

In 2016, Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello has adapted the chorus of this song for a pop hit named "Bad Things", with the line "I never wanna do bad things to you", changed to a sexualized "I only want to do bad things to you". I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that's how I discovered the song - but I liked the chorus a lot, which led me to dig up this beautiful original. Hope you like it!

 

And this time a super-team of dedicated charters - FujiSkunk, drummerockband and myself - have teamed up to bring you an absolute all-time classic that was somehow missing from our DB. We're proud to present:

 

rssV5Ro.jpg

 

This all time classic R&B ballad is now available in all it's glory!
 
So Lionel Richie was taken aback by the initial resistance of pop radio to the Commodores single, "Just to Be Close to You." He decided to write a song that would be a hit on the R&B, pop, adult contemporary, and country charts. Co-produced by arranger James Anthony Carmichael and the Commodores, "Easy" went to number one R&B and number four pop in the summer of 1977. The song became an all-time classic and one of Lionel Ritchie's signature tunes. We hope you enjoy singing and playing along!
 
Preview video right here:
 
 
Just be advised that a few problems in the video were fixed in the finished custom - most notably the ending on vocals (we changed the alternate ending but at that time I didn't update the vocals yet...). On the custom itself it's fixed, along with other minor issues.
 

 

SHKVGbV.jpg

 

One of the biggest hit singles of their career, "Your Love Alone Is Not Enough" is a rousing, catch duet between lead singer James Dean Bradfield and Nina Persson of The Cardigans. It's fun, catchy, a blast to play on every instrument, and ideally sung with a partner!

This song also references a fair share of classic rock hits:

 
-"Trade all your heroes in for ghosts" – Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here".
-"I could have seen for miles and miles" – The Who's "I Can See for Miles".
-"You're as blind as a man can be" – The Beatles' "Nowhere Man".
-"Your eyes stayed blue, baby blue" – Badfinger's "Baby Blue".
-"I could have placed us in exile" – The Rolling Stones' Exile on Main Street (well, that one is stretching it a bit)
 
And also references a previous hit by the Manics - "You Stole the Sun From My Heart" - which I also charted in the past and can be downloaded here.
 
Despite all the fan references, this song - like any Manic songs - has a dark side in it. The title "Your Love Alone is Not Enough" is apparently a direct quote from a suicide note written by a friend of the band, while some lines - specifically "I could have shown you how to cry" - references the disappearance/suicide of former band member Richey Edwards. The song itself is a bit of a "honeypot" to get into the band - as Wire magazine noted, it reels listeners in with something fan, uplifting and glorious - "And by the end of the year, they'll be listening to 'Archives of Pain'".

The Verve are one of those great Britpop 90's bands. And "Urban Hymns" - which kicks off with the huge hit "Bitter Sweet Symphony" - is up there with "Different Class" "Parklife" "Dog Man Star" and "Definitely Maybe" as the great Britpop albums.

"The Drugs Don't Work" was the second single from that album, and it's a big one. It debuted ,at number one on the UK Singles Chart, ranked number seven on Channel 4's list of the 100 Greatest #1 Singles, and chosen by NME as number 78 on its list "150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years" in 2011.

A sad and beautiful ballad, that might actually be about drug abuse, or might refer to the death of a sick relative, the song received a different meaning when it was - coincidentally - released a day after Princess Diana has died.

Despite the sad nature of this song, it's actually great top play in Rock Band. Drums alternate between a disco beat and regular beats and end with a beautiful repeating pattern, guitar plays all sort of lead-slide parts through the song, in keys you get to play a whole strings arrangement, and vocals, goes without saying, are brilliant and emotional.

 

If you haven't already, I highly recommend reading the original thread to enjoy the full Primavera experience:

Once again, many thanks to everyone who was involved!

All I play are drums so it's great to have another dedicated drum charter about.

 

Any clues as to what future tracks we can expect?

Thanks! There's much more to come, a lot I've already charted actually and just testing now. I really wants to make them good, so the testing sometimes takes a bit...

I'm new to this so I would love to hear any feedback on the charts :)

 

More from those artists, also a lot of other bands on my waiting list. So far I'm testing some Springsteen, Pavement, The Replacements, and many more bands are on the list.

 

In the meantime, here's a new 3-pack I just finished testing:

 

Suede 01

"So Young"

"The Drowners"

"Trash"

 

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!

Suede!

 

RE Your Expert Only:
You can use CAT reductions to at least get off the Expert only. I know there are a lot of people here who do like reductions, and at least using the automation gives them an option, even if it's not your handcrafted preference.

 

I'd definitely be willing to exchange some vocals for Suede for some drums. Been looking to chart more Vapors, so maybe that's up your alley. If you like Suede, it's up your alley. =-)

 

Anyway, thanks and welcome!

I'll look into the cat thing, maybe I'll do the harder and the more popular songs.
Of course, if anyone wants to collab to make a full band song, I'll handle all difficulties by the book.

I'm ashamed to say I don't know Vapors - feel free to PM me some songs you wanna do! If I like them we can do them :)

And if you want to do Suede, PM me and I'll send you the RPPs and everything you need. I plan on doing more Suede sometimes too. I also want to do some Pulp who are similar, if you're into them.

Next Suede pack will definitely have Dog Man Star tunes too :)

 

Anyway, just finished testing more customs! and it's more Neil Young! So many of his classics are missing, I had to do some of them :)

 

NEW! Neil Young Rock Classics Pack

"Everybody Knows This is Nowhere"

"Powderfinger"

"Walk On"

 

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 :)

 

Edit: Replaced Ohio with Walk On!

Another day, another pack! 

 

Bruce Springsteen Classics Pack

"Badlands"

"Backstreets"

"The River"

 

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.

 

As noted, it's a shame those are drums only - if anyone wants to help me turn them into full band ones, I'll be so happy to do it!

Hey Yaniv! Thanks again for the contributions. Was just playing some of your stuff and noticed there is no drum fill sections so there's no way to initiate overdrive. I think that's because in Phase Shift, you author differently and they aren't necessary. Just thought I'd drop a note in case you hadn't realized you needed it for RB authoring.

Oh thanks man! I honestly had no idea. I played it all in Phase Shift and was able to initiate overdrive easily. I'll go through the songs and fix it, thanks :)

 

What did you think of the charts otherwise?

24.10 Update: It's been brought to my attention that since I didn't author drum fills, all those tunes were impossible to gold star in RB3 (I didn't know that, in Phase Shift you can activate overdrive just fine without it!). Also, because of a bug I've had, all the album artworks were wrong - there was a very bad resolution picture of Springsteen instead.

 

Because of that, I've updated all the songs to include drum fills and proper artwork.

If you've downloaded an old version, please replace it with the new one! And if you find any further errors, please write me. Thanks :)

Hello, here's 9 new songs!

 

Bruce Springsteen Classics 02

"Land of Hope and Dreams"

"No Surrender"

"The Promised Land"

 

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

"Candy's Room"

"Darkness at the Edge of Town"

"Prove it All Night"

 

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

"Can't Hardly Wait"

"Favorite Thing"

"Kiss Me On the Bus"

 

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.

 

Also, there's another album pack coming very soon - 3/3 songs charted, 2/3 songs approved, I'm just having some difficulties with the tempo of the last one. Once I'll get it right I'll upload all three!

 

Hope you loved those! And as always, if anyone wants to chart more instruments - to anything - PM me!

Hey, it's time to release my first full band collaboration! 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!

 

Get it here!

Bruce Springsteen - Thunder Road

 

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.

 

Also, on a minor note, I've updated 'Darkness at the Edge of Town' to include some missing tom hits from the pro-drums chart. So if you're playing pro, be sure to redownload it here.

 

There's much more coming, I'm quite busy at studying but there's more to look forward too!

A new release!

 

Pavement 'Crooked Rain Crooked Rain' 3-Pack

"Gold Soundz"

"Silence Kid"

"Unfair"

 

A 3 pack of highlights from one of the best rock albums of the 90's! Play along to the brilliant Gold Soundz (Pitchfork's best song of the 90's, and for a good reason!), the opener Silence Kid (man that tempo map was annoying to make, fun to play though!) and my personal favorite, the wild rocker 'Unfair'. Brilliant music and fun charts all around!

David Bowie Modern Pack

"Lazarus"

"No Plan"

"The Stars (Are Out Tonight)"

 

We already have so much vintage Bowie, but how about some of the newer stuff? Lazarus is an heartbreaking tune from the amazing 'Blackstar', with great jazzy drumming. "No Plan" is an underrated outtake from Blackstar, and one of my favorite Bowie tunes ever. And to make this pack a bit less depressing - here's the ultra catchy "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)" from Bowie's comeback album "The Next Day".
