Oh I-hi-hi, Weeeeeeeeell, I’m Still Alive.

And still playing Rock Band 2, of course.

With slightly less than 4 months to go until Connecticon, I’ve decided I’m on a mission to get 100% on all 84 songs included in Rock Band 2 on Expert Vocals. Currently, I’m at 29 out of 84, meaning 1 new 100% every 2 days will get me there with a bit of room to spare. I think most of them will eventually not be too difficult once I hear the songs a few more times, particularly as I have what’s considered one of the hardest ones already out of the way (“Spoonman” by Soundgarden). Three in particular that are going to be tough for me are Bob Dylan’s “Tangled Up in Blue” (Which is long, and has a ton of verses. Worse, no two are exactly alike one another, which makes it extremely difficult to 100% if you’re not really paying attention at all times), Blondie’s “One Way or Another” (The song itself isn’t that difficult, but near the beginning of it is a “broken” talkie which has no real consensus on how to consistently hit it. Then, of course, if you do manage to get through it, you’ve got to get through the rest of the song too.), and “Bodhisattva” by Steely Dan (Because, unlike a lot of hard songs which are a matter of me learning what the game wants, I’ve managed to learn how to do a couple of sections of this song completely incorrectly, and can’t seem to unlearn them for the life of me. Suffice to say that it’s a bit frustrating.

    Your voice is fine, and I would argue it’s probably in a better range than my voice, as least for Rock Band singing. Your utter lack of control over that range, on the other hand, I could do without. ;)

    Anyway, still plugging away at this stuff.
