    Wow, I never even once thought of him being in the game, but yeah, "Guitar Sound" would be a great addition!

    It's not the preview video I'm making, that'll come later.

    Sounds like strong songs, but I have a personal aversion to songs missing instruments. If RB3 introduces a workaround so people don't have to drop out I will definately start looking at some of these.

    So, if I did get some more from him in the future, what would you want to see?

    Sounds great! I'll probably pick it up when it hits the store.

    Yep. All 7 minutes of it. Including crazy keyboard solos at the end!

    The soloing in Guitar Sound from around 4:40 onwards sounds like it could be pretty crazy. I look forward to playing it.

    What I love about it is that I haven't gotten tired of it. Listening to it hundreds of times to get the charts right and now playing it several times, it just stays fun.

    Has there been any talk about what price point your doing?
  • KariodudeKariodude Road Warrior
    edited March 2010
    Yep that's already been decided. $2/160msp

    I've actually had some people tell me I should charge the $3 since it's a 7 minute long song that's taken a lot of time to do, but I refuse to charge more than $2. I'm the "no song is worth $3" crowd.

    Cool, defiantly a buy for me then.

    I could make a preview video of the whole thing right now, but I recently bought an HD Capture Device so I can record stuff I do in better quality, just gotta wait for it to get here.

    Sounds awesome, I'll definitely have to keep an eye out for it. :)

    On a related note, I hope to have it submitted for peer review by the end of the week. Doing the entire song by myself is quite a lot of work.

    Guitar Sounds sounds like it will be an awesome song on guitar....
    I think I said "guitar" and "sounds" too many times in one sentence.

    If it's not $3 I will definitely buy it.

    Yep, it'll be $2 for sure. And yes, it's an awesome sounding song for guitar. The bass is pretty hard just because it's constant strumming for most of the song. The drums....are easygoing but engaging. There are actually a few spots in the drum chart that give me trouble. If you enjoy playing guitar, I'm 99% sure you will love this song.

    You're not meant to say that; at least say it's "easygoing but engaging on drums," or something that sells the song.

    Still, this song is definitely one for the guitarists. (Keytarists?)

    Also, don't you have to put it through playtest before you can put it into peer review?

    Ha, that's totally what I said. I don't know what you're talking about.

    Here is the almost final chart. The only difference between this chart and what is going to peer review next week is that I fixed the few guitar sustains that were too long. You'll also notice that the drums are charted correctly this time and it has overdrive and blah blah blah.

    In other news, please see my signature for some fantastic news.

    To playtest, you mean, right? Playtest first, then Peer Review :)
