A short go tonight but it was quite a good one.
Started with Paranoid Android; first in learn a song and then in score attack. I was slightly annoyed last time I played it that it was quite straightforward yet I’d earned a very low score, so I went back and played it a couple of times, and increased my mastery level to over 35%. I only played it through once on score attack but happily increased my score to a vaguely respectable level. It’s not the most exciting song to play in terms of the amount ot notes and stuff going on, but I like it. I finding the note tones to be a lot cleaner, and it is easier to hear if I’m buzzing notes, or not hitting them quite right. So this week’s work is to improve my finger placement on the fretboard.
I went back to Next Girl to keep playing it in Master Mode and commit as much of the song to memory as I can. The first couple of run throughs weren’t as good as they had been, and I realised I had forgotten a couple of the notes early on in the song. I went back to playing it on hard so I could see the notes again and it played really really well. I only missed one note (grr). Got to the end, got my score, watched the game freeze. Oh. So I don’t know what my stats were but I’ll be trying again tonight for 100%.
Technology is a good reason to make sure I learn and remember what I’m playing, so when it dies I can carry on regardless.
