@buff... what have you been mostly playing on? Guitar or bass? I’ll do the opposite to maximise our LP

Bass, always. Hard guitar is beyond me at the minute but hard bass isn’t...mostly.
Put a right shift in today but prepared to do more if it means GLORY.

Sorry Buff, I must’ve literally left to go to the shop just as you messaged me earlier. I’ll be back on tomorrow I think at some point if you’re about.

Me and the GF are going to try play 10-20 songs tonight and I’ll do more this week if it seems possible

I have 2 of the spotlight songs... open to buying the new one Tuesday night to put a bad drum score in if it means promotion


Oh I dunno, thanks to Buff terminating a massive chunk of our shared songs earlier I’m getting whopping amounts of XP for every song I do (almost 2,000 for Champagne Supernova there!) - we’re already comfortably over 100,000!

Buff is a legend! I didn’t get much time to play last night so I’ll pull my weight over the next few days

He is indeed a top man. I still have a good thirty songs that he did yesterday to go through myself for boosted XP so I’ll try and do as many as I can.

The other thing I’ve been doing for LP is smashing out all the songs in my library that are under three minutes long. There are 45 of them so theoretically it shouldn’t take longer than two hours to get potentially around 400,000LP.

I think our major issue will be spotlight scores though, and I’m not sure how to get around that.

That’s the main reason why I try to play early, to give people with actual skill the x1.5 boost. Will be playing hopefully another 50ish tunes.

I think I can get us over the line on LP and XP, but we desperately need about 600,000 spotlight points that I absolutely can’t help with, sadly. Currently bang on the 90% for LP and 84% on XP.

I’ve got the XP up to 87% and the LP to 90% just there. Still have tunes I can do for a 1st play bonus but my hand is a bit strawberry floated :lol:

I don't think we'll make it to be honest. Without a bump to the spotlight score we'd need to be no. 1 on the leaderboard for LP and XP.

I’ll do Ace of Bass tomorrow night on drums. I need to dig it all out and set it up

I can squeeze a bit more on my guitar and bass fit that song and SoaD too and I’ll see where we are at

Hoping to get 2-3 hours of game time tomorrow, been hectic the past few days sorry!!

Don't worry man, if you're busy you're busy - life comes first!

Couple of things I've picked up playing this afternoon:

- The top spotlight score appears to be 1,992,049. We're on 1,415,865 so a little improvement could go a long way!
- I can't see from skulking about what the top LP score would be, but another 80,000 gets us near the top 20.
- We have 231,000+ XP at the moment, but the no. 1 group is sitting with 448,887 XP which is frankly insane.

I did some more this afternoon but the 1st play stuff I have left is too hard for me, it’s more frustration than fun at this point. The Blood Sugar Sex Magic stuff is a stern, stern test.

I can’t seem to get my 360 drums working and I’ve loaned my XB1 set out :fp:

It’s not nice to sing either(same with AC/DC) so I’ve steered as clear as I can but I’m starting to run out of songs...
