    All charted and venue'd up.

    Just gotta wait for the band to get back from their Saturday gig to sign the legal forms. Hopefully I can start playtesting next week.

    I just asked the band if that'd be okay. I've already sneaked a couple playtests out of other RBN authors and made some awesome fixups.

    Bit of legal entanglement to overcome, so things will be delayed. I sure hope that clears up soon.

    I hear good things about this show. This song sounds good, and the charts look nice from what I can tell :D

    I will probably pick this up at some point. Points are a bit scarce at the moment!

    I cannot wait to play those keys! The BRE is going to be a ***** to hit on pro-keys though.

    I definitely recommend you watch the show. Funny as hell but with its share of drama, you'll be hooked by the second episode.

    That's a glissando, all you need to do nail it is hit the first note at the right time and then play anything for the rest of the notes. It's used when the player is just sliding their hand up or down the keyboard which should be really easy to do but is actually very difficult to if you have to hit each key at the exact same time as on the original recording.

    I know i usually try to slide my hand with it but i always end up being one or two notes off at the start i end up losing my streak.

    You don't necessarily have to slide, as long as you hit the first note you can hit any notes for the duration of the glissando. I haven't had much time on pro keys due to not yet having my own keyboard controller, but I've read that doing a little trill works well.

    Really? I didn't know that but it does explain a lot. Almost every time i play Whiter Shade of Pale i end up getting the one that goes down and then up (sorry for my lack of technical terms RB is the first time i ever played keys) but i don't hit it the right way so i just took it as the game giving me the benefit of the doubt lol.

    Is this still being worked on? Or is it a lost cause?

    Coach mentioned on Twitter that there are sufficient publishing hang-ups with the track to consider the project dead. :(
  • edited December 2011
    Well that sucks. I was really looking forward to getting this song.

    Attention shoppers: I thought I'd give it one more try with the band. They now fully control the rights again and we are GO!
