All the charts for June have been released so here's the rundown:

KISS 01

Hotter Than Hell
Love Her All I Can
Sweet Pain

Three great early tracks from KISS before they became bloated with corporate prostitution. All three tracks have some fun solos but the most fun on guitar has to be Love Her All I Can. Lots of great HOPO sections in that one! I'm also pretty happy with how the DIY outros went for the other two tracks too. Great pack, in my opinion!

Franz Ferdinand 01
Cheating On You
40'
Jacqueline

You know, I nearly charted Evil And A Heathen instead of Jacqueline but after listening to that song again, decided we needed a more fun one on guitar. Jacqueline has plenty of great riffs throughout and even though it's the last song of the pack, it's a banger of an album opener. I'm also thankful that I changed the charting of the guitar chords in the Cheating On You chorus to be WAY less awkward. However, the rapid strumming solo in 40' is still pretty tricky; feel free to make that a strum lane if you convert it to RB3.

Classic Rock 01
Let It All Out - Ram Jam
Drivin' Wheel - Foghat
Shinin' On - Grand Funk Railroad

It's about time I did a full Classic Rock variety pack. All three songs are great fun on guitar and pretty damn good on bass too. Lots of great HOPOs sections, fun chord sequences and generally just awesome Classic Rock tunes. My favourite is definitely Drivin' Wheel, even if it does have the easiest solo. The main riff feels so great to nail and whilst the DIY outro isn't my finest work, I'm proud of the chart overall.

Journey 01
Keep On Runnin'
Lay It Down
Dead Or Alive

Yup, three songs from Escape have been charted. We're a couple of steps closer to having that album fully charted, folks! To be honest, all three tracks are great on guitar and bass although Dead Or Alive is easily the most challenging on both. The main riff for that song is charted almost identically on guitar and bass but whilst guitar mostly uses strum notes, bass has HOPOs so you've got two ways of playing the same melody. However, Keep On Runnin' is my favourite song from the list and I definitely recommend that one if you want to hear some amazing vocals.


Four more packs are coming in July so get ready to experience these packs soon:

Monster Magnet 01
At The Movies 01
The Temperance Movement 01
Mixed Singles

Most of these are fun on guitar... Especially Journey, Classic Rock 01, and Love Her All I Can. The Franz Ferdinand pack is... Franz Ferdinand, but it's all killer no filler in terms of bangers.

Here's some trivia and info about all the charts for July, which are now available to download on the first page:

Monster Magnet 01
19 Witches
Tractor
Radiation Day

Yep, the band that did "Space Lord" had other songs too. Some great Stoner/Hard Rock in this pack, although there's not a whole lot of great bass so this pack is one for guitarists. Sweet riffs and some fun solos, particularly in Radiation Day. I also created a short DIY outro for that song too, as the album version I had led into the next track so there was no natural ending. I just copied a chord from earlier and popped it at the end with some reverb. I think 19 Witches also had a shorter outro with a chord to make it sound more like a proper ending.

At The Movies 01
Back In Time - Huey Lewis & The News
We Are Not Alone - Karla DeVito
Winner Takes It All - Sammy Hagar

Three semi-popular songs from 80s films: Back To The Future, The Breakfast Club and Over The Top. All of these have some great guitar charts, particularly Back In Time which has some excellent riffs and a sweet solo too. I'll admit that I probably charted some keys on guitar in We Are Not Alone, if only because the guitar is so buried in the mix that it's hard to tell what was guitar and keys there. I tried to be as accurate as possible but ultimately, it was a tough one to get right. Winner Takes It All actually has a bass solo (courtesy of a Mr. Eddie Van Halen!) so that one's fun on both instruments.
All three tracks have DIY outros that involve recycling either a bridge, the intro or the chorus at the end to make it sound more complete. I'm pretty happy with how Back In Time and Winner Takes It All turned out. We Are Not Alone........moving on!

The Temperance Movement 01
Caught In The Middle
Built-In Forgetter
Love And Devotion

If you haven't heard of this band before, I strongly recommend them! They have three great albums and all three of these tracks come from A Deeper Cut. Bass and guitar are decent on these tracks, nothing too challenging but lots of fun riffs and some cool solos too. Think The Black Crowes but slightly easier, if that helps. Built-In Forgetter is probably the most fun guitar chart of the bunch, although Caught In The Middle is probably my favourite song. Enjoy!

Mixed Singles - Destroy All Humans!

Help You Ann - Lyres
Dirty Red - The Morlocks
She Changes Like The Weather - Nic Armstrong & The Thieves

Did you guys know that Destroy All Humans!, the PS2 game where you play as an alien trying to invade the planet in the 1950s, is being remade and released in just two days? Well, if you didn't, you do now! To celebrate the remake of this great little game, I decided to chart three songs from the sequel, Destroy All Humans! 2 (the game that took place in, get this, the 1960s!!). Help You Ann has some fun guitar solos but also a main riff with a lot of tremolo, resulting in a charting challenge that I hope I successfully pulled off in a fun but somewhat accurate way. Dirty Red is easily my favourite song and chart of the bunch, with its raw riffs and excellent little guitar solo.
She Changes Like The Weather is pretty easy and uneventful on guitar, although it's great for beginners and there's a neat bass solo in the outro too. If you ever played Destroy All Humans! 2 and enjoyed the soundtrack, I hope you like these charts!


Back to the usual schedule of chart releases for August so get ready for the following packs:

Punk Rock 01
The Sword 01
Blue Oyster Cult 01 (a 6-pack of deep cuts)

Back In Time - Huey Lewis & The News

This was already in the database, are you releasing an alternate version or converting the previous?

Varying depths. One song is Boorman The Chauffeur, a track recorded during the Secret Treaties sessions that was only released on a 2004 remaster. Another is Golden Age Of Leather, a fan favourite the band still play live but was never released as a single.
I'm doing one song from different albums so there'll be something from their self-titled debut, Tyranny and Mutation, Agents Of Fortune and Fire Of Unknown Origin too.

Nah, same version but a different chart. I won't be converting it myself but if anyone else wants to play a different guitar/bass chart or convert it for the database under their own name, it's here for you to download.

I can only hope some kind soul takes it upon themselves to convert them, because any songs from these albums are pretty amazing.  Though I mostly just play Rock Band, I will occasionally play some Phaseshift just for your customs   :D.  So thank you!

You're very welcome, Harrug! I hope I do these BOC songs justice, as they have some cracking guitar riffs and solos!

It's felt like a long month without posting anything here but it's finally time for the monthly breakdown of all the new charts:

Punk Rock 01
Jet Boy - New York Dolls
Love Song - The Damned
News Of The World - The Jam

Some surprisingly fun guitar charts in this pack, considering the genre. Every song has AT LEAST one guitar solo and whilst there's still a fair amount of chord strumming, there are some great riffs to enjoy in each track. Compared to other Punk songs, the bass isn't quite as active as other songs but that doesn't mean it's not enjoyable. Love Song has a thick & juicy bassline that you could bounce a penny off and News Of The World (a song that may sound very familiar to fans of comical UK news-based panel shows) should give bassists something to get stuck into.

The Sword 01
Hammer Of Heaven
Daughter Of Dawn
The Dreamthieves

I'm not sure why Harmonix never licensed any songs by these guys after Guitar Hero 2, as their tracks are usually full of amazing guitar and bass perfect for 5-fret rhythm gaming. All of these songs contain banging HOPO riffs on both instruments and whilst the guitar charts contain solos with a variety of difficulties, the bass charts are perfect for anyone who wants to play the guitar riffs without challenging chord sequences or triplet sequences. The Dreamthieves contains a pretty nifty DIY outro I threw together too consisting of the second chorus and the pre-solo riffs too. Definitely a pack I recommend and there are still plenty of great Sword tunes to bring to C3 in the future...

Blue Oyster Cult 01

Boorman The Chauffeur
Hot Rails To Hell
Redeemed
Tattoo Vampire
Heavy Metal: The Black And Silver
Golden Age Of Leather

Are these cuts deep enough for you? Probably not, seeing as how Blue Oyster Cult still perform at least two of these live. It was difficult deciding on six songs to pick from a band with my all-time favourite guitarist but hopefully, there are at least a couple of songs in here that fans of their classics will also enjoy. Each track contains some fun guitar riffs although the easiest songs are probably Heavy Metal and Tattoo Vampire (bass on the latter is surprisingly challenging). Redeemed is perfect for fans of lengthy HOPO sequences whilst Boorman The Chauffeur and Hot Rails To Hell contain some fun little guitar solos.


No new Clone Hero charts for September as I wanted to take a little break from charting for a bit. I'll be back in October with new packs although some of you may be aware that I recently joined SomeOldGuys so if you like my charts but want to play them with a full band, keep an eye on this thread for some quality tunes!

It's a great tune on guitar and bass. Hopefully someone will do some more of their classics at some point like The Eton Rifles and That's Entertainment.

For what it's worth, nobody starts off charting perfectly and looking at some of the charts I made over a year ago (RHCP and Triumph in particular), I can see that some of my charts are pretty poor compared to others out there. Since I started posting on C3, I've come to realise that this community is very accepting of charters of all abilities. I say go for it, your charts probably aren't as bad as you think anyway.

Besides, you can always edit/improve them over time if necessary. However, you won't know if they need fixing unless you let other people try them!
