    I cued up your latest song, immediately ran out of the room, bumping into every wall... until I found the secret passage. Appeared and exited at the top of a tree, crashed on the ground, ate three magic pills (at least I hope that's what those were:eek: ), swapped weapons for a drill, re-entered the house and saved the Princess (AKA El Wifey-Poo). Whew!

    A little warning might help next time... ya think?
    ;)

    Nice tune.

    Awww, guys... :oops: my face is so red it's melting all the snow in our backyard. Don't do that! :D

    Besides, you have no idea how many takes I did of that bassline (= how much I "cheated")... I really hate 16th notes now. :rolleyes: :p

    yeah Oyster, that Batman thingo is none to shabby, especially your melody-following antics towards the end. good stuff, although i have to admit every time i hear your music my mind always remembers (with a devilish mental chuckle) that very audible stuff-up during your solo on "Juicy Fruit" :D

    Ah the hell with you, you... you... meanie! :D

    If you're so darn good, why don't you try this Batman lick, all 16th notes in 105 bpm (I'll write it in tAbZ for you, displaying the way I played it in that recording):
    Code:
    B |-15-12----12-------------------------------------|
    F#|-------13----13----------------------13----------|
    C#|----------------13-10-13-10----10-------10----10-|
    G#|----------------------------11----11-------11----|
    
    B |-------------19-17-15-17-15-14----14-------------|
    F#|-------------------------------17----17-16-14-16-|
    C#|-------------------------------------------------|
    G#|-12-15-12-15-------------------------------------|
    Hmm...? :p
     
  11. Ooooo.... a challenge. And TAB too. Can I play too? Please, pretty please.
