Tonight I got a chance to start playing a little earlier than normal and that worked out really well.
I started with another attempt at Paranoid Android, but couldn’t better my score at all; in fact it was nearly back down towards my first attempt. It just seems to me to be an odd song to struggle with because there are so few notes. Maybe that’s the reason I’m struggling? I’m really not sure at the moment. Either way, I’ve only really got one more night to make an improvement before the deadline.
After having Next Girl crash on me the other night, I went back to it determined to complete it to 100%. I started on hard.
It worked! My first 100%, first platinum rating of the game. It’s an utter confidence boost to finally do this, even though the song is probably rated quite easy in terms of it’s difficulty. I don’t really care though.
So I thought maybe I could then do it again in master mode.
It was a really good feeling for me to be able to run through the whole song without the notes, all from memory; it was like an odd kind of high, that’s how happy I was to do it.
So now I need a new song. I’m tempted to go back to one of the other songs I worked on for previous songs of the week, but I think I’d actually prefer a brand new one. I tested out Every Breath You Take to see how that goes – I might go for it, but there are a couple of chords in there that are confusing me. So I might have another look.
