This is my first ever attempt at a chart.

 

 

 

The tempo might not be matched 100% everywhere, as the song itself makes minor tempo shifts a lot.

 

Please tell me what I did wrong and need to fix. I want to get better at this stuff.

 

Is it too hard? Over/undercharted? Is the Overdrive placed okay?

 

Thanks.

 

(Apologies if this is in the wrong section, the troubleshooting/support board didn't seem applicable so I put it here)

Not a bad start. The biggest issue that sticks out is the sustained chords with notes played during them. Those are illegal in Rock Band and won't work.

 

Secondly, the sustains need to be pulled back slightly (a 32nd or 16th is sufficient).

 

Third, I understand there's more than one guitar in the song but it's really hard to tell which one the player is supposed to play and from my perspective I'm hearing a lot of strumming that isn't being charted.

 

Again, good start. Keep working!

Congrats on your first chart! I would recommend you check out the threads about installing and using CAT, because it can automate tasks like trimming those sustain tails to an appropriate length. It can shave off a lot of time so you don't have to pull the notes back by hand.

I'll make sure to change the mid-chord notes, I've played more Guitar Hero than I have Rock Band, and I remember seeing some GH song with mid-chord notes, so I guess I just assumed they'd work here.

 

From what I can hear a lot of the stuff the lead guitar plays in the chorus and pre-chorus are mostly strumming the same note, mirroring the chords, or playing too quiet to be picked up over the vocals/rhythm guitar. I tried to strike a balance between clear chords and the audible flourishes, but I guess I'll keep working at that.

I haven't messed with CAT yet, but it's for sure on my list of things to learn. I'm working on getting the vocal part down right now.

Thanks! I was mostly following the twitch video tutorial, I'll be sure to read up.
