Well, what do you want to record?  Video playthru, your own playing, Both???

 

And yeah,  RS cables are pricey.  That's why we always jump on fire-sales for the old version of Rocksmith.

Free coaster/game with your cable... all for 10bucks :D

 

I dig it!

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry... that's all I got.

Surprisingly, my local Walmart still has a PS3 copy of the non-bass version for $10.  I should just pick it up to have a second spare for the PC.

Yeah. Both. I figure I can use a capture device for the TV video stream but I want to record video to get some help on positioning.

 

I have like two spares because I sold some games to a local shop and I got to keep the cables. I hope I don't need to replace them all the time.

Still on cable 1 - with 1000 hours or so. I have been wireless since almost the beginning... If you're gonna keep with playing, a cheap wireless guitar hookup is 40 bucks or so. Nice to walk around without cables.

 

In deal news -

Sam Ash has the Zoom G1u Multi Effects pedal with USB connection for $49. The other stores carry it for 89... Seems to be a closeout.

We should find out what the new DLC is today sometime. Spain RS page leaked a Boston pack... I like Boston OK. Maybe will pick and choose a couple of songs.

 

I'm not using RS a lot right now, though. I got a 1 month sub to sixstringcountry.com and have been working through a bunch of country songs. They have some pretty phenomenal lessons...

I have bought spares for $8 from BB and sold the Game only for $35 bucks. I got paid about $20 after fees and shipping to get a spare cable. Don't assume it is worthless/AOL Disc/Coaster.

Boston DLC pack tomorrow: http://www.theriffre...-2014-tomorrow/

 

Also, Paul Cross pretty much confirmed that an Arctic Monkeys pack is coming at some point but didn't give further details. My hope would be a 5 pack containing: I Bet You Look Good on The Dance Floor, Fluorescent Adolescent, Crying Lightning, Do I Wanna Know?,  Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair.

I'm almost certain one of my cables died. I just started on Saturday too. Lol

It wouldn't recognize the bass but it did recognize that the cable was connected by USB. So I suppose that means that one part of the cable doesn't work anymore.

I almost got 90% on Pour Some Sugar on Me and I've never really played bass. I wasn't expecting that.

Where can I check for DLC? I can't connect the PS3 to the Internet. The original selection isn't good.

Make sure you undo the 2 parts of the cable then reconnect them and seat them well. Sometimes, they pull apart just a TEENY bit and it looks like the cable is fried...

Arctic Monkeys "Do I Wanna Know?" would be great.  Reminds me of the Black Keys.

Yay!  Here's another

New DLC Day

that means nothing to me, without a sale...

 

Anyway,  here are a couple guitar deals that popped into my email.

 

Monoprice has another sale on their strat for $81.96

http://www.monoprice...ngbreak_q1_2014

 

And J. Backlund Design Guitars started their 2nd Kickstarter project.

This time it's their take on the telecaster.

https://www.kickstar...-guitar-project

I got in on 1st KS project for the R-800 and it is a sweet guitar.  Hella lotta guitar, especially for my sorry butt. Expect this one to be kick-ass too.

I'll most likely back it; already thinking of Silver/Black or CAR/Ivory

Heart - "Crazy On You"

Halestorm - Love Bites (So Do I)

Flyleaf - "All Around Me"

 

Ugh. Nothing this week. It's gonna have to be really good shit to pull me away from the site I've been using, anyway.

Only a few days left.  Remember  that if you backed the 1st guitar, R-800, you're able to back this 2nd one at the same price.

That's roughly a 200 savings.

What have you been using.

 

My Panny plasma popped a cherry and won't turn on anymore :-(

Might as well try other methods while I decide what to do about the set.

I'm a country guy... So I found a site called sixstringcountry.com. The videos that this guy makes and the lessons are phenomenal. I used a free 1 month code off of youtube, but I am gonna end up keeping my sub at $10 a month. They have like 90 song specific lessons, then they have a bunch of country/blues lessons to do, too. Haven't had RS in the drive for weeks and have practiced daily for a couple of weeks just because I'm excited to have stuff I love again...

Halestorm is an amazing band, they put on phenomenal live shows.   That said, Love Bites is the same song they have in Bandfuse, a bit of a disappointment they didn't get a different track here instead.

Oh - hellz no... I LOVE me some Halestorm (Lzzy Hale....mmmmm... HAWT)... I just don;t want to play more hard rock. I gotta spend my time learning shit I'm gonna play on stage. I may be auditioning for a band as the lead guitarist in a few weeks if they sack the current guy...

 

Been working out the solo for this tonight:

Lzzy Hale grew up about 15 minutes from me in Red Lion, PA, same time.

Hunting deals for this game.  Plan on getting RS1 and 2014 for my wife who is getting back into guitar.  I will learn "Where is my mind" by the Pixies, my only goal.

The current guitarist, Joe Hottinger, is heavily rumored to be Lzzy's long-term boyfriend.  Take a look at their various social media pages, those two are always together.  Sorry to disappoint you.  But yes, I've never seen anybody better than Lzzy at working a wah peddle while wearing platform stiletto heels, that's for sure!  And look good while doing it, of course!

Welcome!

:beer:

 

Toss back a few while we wait for new deals.  We're in a bit of a lull right now but should pick up eventually.

RS1 can usually be found for $20 & under, with clearance deals sub-10 bucks.

Less than 3 days left and $2,900 short.

Might go down to the wire.

I'm telling you... The Best Buy clearance RUINED me for new guitars forever. I just can't pay that much anymore when I bought an American Tele for $475...

 

Next week's DLC... A Day To Remember. Yeah, I know. I heard the collective sigh of a bad week of DLC... At least we have 3 more weeks of ALL NEW DLC before they go back to on-disc artists...

They said they'll continue to sell content they've already released, but don't expect anything new until, or if, they resume operations.

Bandfuse is still $29.99 at GS. The DLC will stay available. There never was much of the game printed, so I'd say if you really wanted to try it, $30 is pretty good.

 

Couple of nice BC Rich deals at MF:

 

BC Rich Pro X Custom Eagle Electric Black Metalflake - $399.99 (MSRP $1450, usual retail 1000)

http://www.musicians...c-guitar/h99260

http://www.musicians...h99195000001000

mockcustom_zpsbd61b943.jpg

 

A coupe of guys have bought some of these off of MF on the RS forums and LOVE their guitars. I know at least one pro player that is sponsored by BC and only plays Mockingbirds (and did before he was sponsored).

 

They have some other BC Rich's for comparable savings in the deal page...
