Tell Mr truejedi to finish the talking heads song before haha

 

But seriously, I would love to do FJM, the problem is that his music is piano heavy (so it will be weird to chart without pro keys) and there aren't really many good FJM midis out there. I can figure out keys by ear if it's fairly simple, but for complex piano parts it would take me forever... so just charting keys to his songs will be a nightmare. Thankfully the song we're discussing is more guitar heavy...

The Replacements 4-Pack!

 

Probably the best punk rock band of all time, and after I already did their classic "Can't Hardly Wait", The Replacements now get their own 4 pack! The pack includes 2 updates of previously drum-only customs, and two brand new songs!

 

Please note - for all updates, I'm also seriously updating the drum chart (I've gotten better at those), tempo map, etc. So even if you're only a drummer, and you have the old version - I highly suggest downloading the new one! It's much better.

 

And now, the songs...

Kicking it up with a classic (but honestly, they all are!), "Favorite Thing" is an ultra fast, furious and brilliant punk-rock masterpiece, from the all-time classic album "Let it Be". This one will get you sweating and screaming!

"Kiss Me on the Bus" is a brilliant, catchy, jangle pop/rock track. An all time classic and really a fun song!

My personal favorite of the pack, "Color Me Impressed" is a fast-paced and brilliant punk classic from the band. An early classic, one of their defining songs and biggest classics, this one will make you sweat and test your stamina - especially on drums! And it also has a pretty tough guitar solo.

Representing the more quiet side of the Replacements, "Swingin' Party" is a gentle rock masterpiece, with brilliant lyrics, from the classic album "Tim". It's beautiful to sing, includes an incredible melodic bass line (especially the chorus) and should be a nice way to chill after rocking out to the other tunes. It's now regarded as a classic, covered by artists like Lorde and many others.

 

 

 

That's it for today! I keep clearing the pipeline. Now I only have, hmm, 13 customs that I started work on and yet to release... I'll get to those before starting a new batch!

 

And speaking of the new batch - which artists would you like to see? I made a poll from my top options, and it's still relevant. So if you haven't already, make sure to vote here!

 

Have fun!

Thanks! If you like punk-rock they're absolutely essential. Even the Green Day singer said he would have never played punk if it wasn't for them.

Personally I'm not a huge punk rock fan (not a huge Green Day fan either), but I still absolutely love them because I'm a huge fan of great songwriting, and I think Paul Westerberg is one of the finest songwriters I know.

Wilco "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" 4-Pack!

 

So, today it’s (finally) the time to release a pack that me and the great mrcoupdetat have been working on for a very long time. A tribute to one of the greatest albums of the 2000’s, Wilco’s masterpiece “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot”.

 

Those four songs from the album were already available as drum-only customs, but they’ve been updated and upgraded in any way to give those songs the full experience they deserve. And they turned out to be absolutely fantastic customs, in my humble opinion :)

Thanks again to mrcoupdetat for his great work on those songs!

 

And a huge thanks to Nolan for the preview videos!

 

Just a note on the preview videos: after they were done, I ended up doing another round of fixes and changes on all the songs. So they’re a bit out of date – the customs you’re getting are actually better than the videos show! There are a few charting bugs in the videos – they’re all fixed in the actual custom. Especially the vocal tracks went through a major rehaul. But the videos are still great to get a general feel of how the custom is.

The epic opening song to this masterful record, this is a Wilco classic and one of their most beloved tunes. At it’s core it’s a fairly simple folk ballad, but the instrumentation and the production are masterful. Drums are original and entertaining, bass is fun and changing, keys are varied and include a few great piano melodies, and there’s even a drum solo! Before it eventually climaxes with long synth drones and a final, higher-octave verse.

YouTube Video

 

Not quite what the name implies, Heavy Metal Drummer is a fun, catchy and probably the most poppy song on the record. Pretty straight forward on all instruments, it’s a great one to relax and sing along to.

YouTube Video

 

If you’re looking for a challenge or some insane charts, this is the one for you! With no less than 3 guitar solos, and one of the most unique drum tracks I’ve seen (actually it’s a combination of several different percussion tracks), this song definitely delivers great entertainment on all instruments. And it’s a freakin’ great song too!

Oh and mad respect to mrcoupdetat for charting that guitar track – wonder how long this one took!

YouTube Video

 

Finishing with the prettiest one, Jesus Etc is a stone-cold indie classic. A beautiful love ballad full of string instruments (here charted to a pretty busy keys track), this is in my humble opinion, one of the most beautiful songs written in the last decades. A classic.

 

Thanks for downloading, hope you enjoyed it!

Singles from Tom Waits, Simon & Garfunkel and Magazine!

 

Three new singles today!

I'm so happy to give one of my favorite artists in the world, and certainly the coolest human being on this planet, Tom Waits, his rock band debut!

 
"Make It Rain", from his 2004 album Real Gone, is an hellish bluesy song, with an absolutely brilliant and unique vocal performance from Waits. So unique, that I had no idea how to even start charting it, so I turned to one of the pros... and he didn't disappoint!
 
So thanks to the brilliant BornGamerRob for charting vocals on this!
 
Please note, the video shows a live version, because there's nothing quite like watching Waits perform this song (or any song, for that matter). The custom is the studio version, which is quite similar except having a much cooler guitar solo, by legendary guitarist Marc Ribot, and not whoever the random guy in the video is. If you want to hear the exact version of the custom, it's this one.

 

Hope you like that one, because I plan to chart quite a few more Tom Waits tunes in the future! (if you're a fan and there's specific ones you want, let me know!).

Thanks Nolan for the video preview!

I'm sure this one needs no introducing. 

 
Not only a classic, but one that fits Rock Band perfectly. Lots of little guitar lines, brilliant bass that feels like it's soloing all over the song, insanely difficult keys parts (including sax parts charted to keys), and of course those famous vocal harmonies.
 
I knew it's a big one, and felt quite a responsibility when I decided to do it, so I was sure to give my absolute best to chart it and get it as good as I can. I'm extremely pleased with how it turned out - hope you liked it too!
 
Thanks Nolan for the video preview!

 

Hope you enjoyed those!

oh wow I'm a huge Waits fan who heard pretty much all his albums, and you somehow manage to suggest a song I don't know, from one of the only albums I didn't hear...

29.7 - The Dismemberment Plan 4-pack with Nolan!

 

Ok, these are technically not my customs, but I've done vocals and keys to all, and they're seriously one of the coolest pack of customs I've ever seen or played, so I highly highly highly recommend you check them out!

 

If you're not familiar, the Dismemberment Plan are a Washington based experimental indie rock band, and their 1999 album "Emergency & I" is regarded as one of the best indie albums of the 90's. It's ultra original and fun, there's nothing like it, and it translates amazingly to RB - especially if you're a drummer!

 

Personally I always wanted to chart these, but thought the drums were too difficult... until one day I saw Nolan just upload the full album on drums to the DB! I immediately contacted him and we made a plan, along with Meta123, to bring the whole album to C3! This is the first pack. I charted vocals, keys and pro keys, Nolan did everything else.

 

They all got really awesome preview videos and they're insanely fun, so make sure you check them out! Here they are:

 

The City

 

Their most iconic tune, this one includes an insanely cool drum beat (seriously just listen), an iconic synth riff and a brilliant catchy melody.

 

Gyroscope

 

Short, punchy, immediate, and extremely non-symmetrical with an extremely catchy chorus, another ultra cool, unique fun track. 

 

Girl O'Clock

 

No words to describe this one other than complete madness. Absolutely insane devil-tiered drums that I'll never ever be able to pass, the most unique vocals chart I've ever done (seriously just listen) and just, well, madness all around. Also my favorite song on the record.

 

You Are Invited

 

A somewhat calmer, story-song about a mysterious invitation, based on a cool drum machine beat. Great fun to sing along to!

 

So that's it for now, hope you liked our work on those :)

2.8 - Neil Young 4-pack!

 

Hello C3! And now it’s time for a tribute to my single favorite artist in the world… Neil Young!

 

This Neil Young deep cuts pack allows you to go a bit further than the “Heart of Gold”s and “Rocking in the Free World”s you already know. Containing 4 brilliant and very different tracks, from 4 different album (Actually one of them isn’t even in a studio album), I cherry picked some of the best least known Neil tracks and made this pack! Three of them are upgrades of existing drum customs, one is brand new. Hope you like it :)

There’s so much to say about “Tonight’s the Night” – the bleakest album Neil made in his life, dedicated to do friends (including his former guitar player) who died from heroin use, and recorded when Neil was regularly drinking a bottle of tequila a day. It’s also, in my opinion, the best album of his career. And Mellow My Mind is my favorite song from it.

An heartbreaking ballad with Neil’s voice constantly breaking, it’s actually a really good Rock Band track as well. None of the instruments are too difficult, but they’re all varied and fun to play. No pro keys for that one, sorry.

Many thanks to MrPrezident for charting the very drunk vocal track to this one! I recommend doing a few shots before attempting to sing this. Haven’t actually tried this, but it sounds pretty awesome.

From saddest Neil to angriest Neil. “Revolution Blues” isn’t Neil heaviest, distortion-wise, but he’s rarely been this angry. Based on the character of Charles Manson, who Neil knew before his terrible crimes and was deeply impressed by, this song was written when Neil discovered he was a terrible murderer.

Easily the best fit to RB in this pack, this song has 2 guitar solos, tricky and ever-changing drums, and bass guitar that sometimes seems to solo over the whole song. You’ll have a lot of fun playing any of those instruments.

Technically there’s also a keyboard in the song (well, at least the credits say so) but it’s barely audible most of the song so I couldn’t chart it. Also, video preview shows a slightly old version of the charts, so it’s been improved since. Thanks to MrPrezident for his assistance with charting vocals to this one!

So we’ve done angry, sad, not it’s time for one of those chilled, relaxing and achingly beautiful tunes Neil is known for. “Lotta Love”, a highlight from his 1978’s “Comes a Time” album, is one of those beautiful, honest and touching songs Neil tracks, and makes a great custom too! If pro keys players felt left out with the two previous songs, this is the one where the keys shine, and you get to play some absolutely beautiful piano. Hope you like it!

Last but not least, this is just as classic Neil as it gets. Written as early as 1969, recorded in 1974 and only released in 1977 “Decades” compilation album, Winterlong has made a name as Neil classic tune despite not appearing on any album. It was even covered by Pixies, who play the song live pretty often to this day.

It’s not difficult but it’s fun on all instruments, and includes some classic, CSN&Y style, vocal harmonies. A big fan favorite and for a very good reason!

Many thanks again to MrPrezident for charting vocals to this song!

 

Also, since I made a very stupid mistake (project splitting in two and stuff), the video preview shows a very old and inaccurate version of the drum chart. So if you catch some mistakes in the drum chart video (there's quite a few), rest assured they're fixed in the actual custom!

 

 

 

Huge thanks to Nolan for all video previews! Make sure you check our (mostly his) awesome work on the Dismemberment Plan 4-pack!

 

See you next time :)
