List of play-along songs with synchronised tabs on Youtube

Yeah, I have no doubt they are accurate to errors in the original recordings (tape stretch, etc) - but they should not exist in the notation like that. If you were a band playing this live there is a 0% chance you would try and do that, unless maybe you were Radiohead. No drummer is that masochistic.

You can always remove the tempo “corrections” using guitar pro. The PDF in the other post shows the results for that.

Here it is

Sure, just saying - this software kind of falls prey to the same thing that DAWs do with MIDI or other shared electronic files. All DAWs I know of can produce notation from MIDI files; it’s just that that notation is often very funky and not how a human would write it. Same thing goes for what @Gio pointed out in the other thread.

These are cool and it’s neat that you are sharing these, but also it’s important to remember that they share the same quality issues with online tabs - they are very similarly vulnerable to both transcription error and also software quirks, depending on how generated.

I tried correcting tabs on UltimateGuitar for a while but it was futile from the start :rofl:

Yeah. But the main thing is: with the help of these videos it’s easy to play along.
For a beginner that is worth a lot.
Since I discovered those possibilities, I play songs every day. And that’s what it’s all about for me :slight_smile:

Song: Sir Duke

In this one, the computer thinks beat 4 is beat 1.

Strange.
It’s always weird when they’re so smart, yet also… not.

The Hysteria tab looks correct to me, or close enough.

Bombtrack and Hysteria look fine.
I think the songs with obvious rhythms that start on beat 1 are handled well.

It’s the ones that have syncopated beginnings and don’t come in on 1 that get weird.

Ok, cool! That’s already a promising result.

Do you find any track with syncopated beginnings in my list?

Reason: it looks like the Rocksmith tracks are ok (just as expected) and the issue is with crowd-driven tracks.
Just to be sure I would like you to check a really challenging track from the list.
Your choice - I’ll make the video and upload the tab as pdf!

I’m also happy to purchase another track from Rocksmith if it helps you analyze things - just tell me which.

PS This is the list of tracks that I could purchase. Note that some tracks might be removed from the catalog as they are expired…

I haven’t really looked into it much yet, I’m still working through B2B right now so it isn’t at the top of my list of priorities as far as practice time, but I can use a regular audio interface for Rocksmith, right? I don’t need to buy the RS branded 1/4" to usb cable if I’ve already got a Focusrite for instance?

In case you have Rocksmith 2014 (Rocksmith+ s#cks!): you’ll need either the sh#tty Real Tone Cable and your set.
Or you install rs_asio in addition to Rocksmith and have one of these audio interfaces: GitHub - mdias/rs_asio: ASIO for Rocksmith 2014

Focusrite is on the list, so you’re good to go.

Please note that it will be harder and harder to get the official Rocksmith 2014 and its track as Ubisoft really wants to sell the mediocre Rocksmith+ and the rights to the tracks slowly expire. If you own them you own them though.

Getting alternative tracks via Ignitionsearch is described in the original post above.
You need to patch Rocksmith 2014 to use those tracks though. I haven’t done that as I switched to Tonelib Jam (there is a free trial) and never looked back!

No worries! I will keep posting videos no matter what. And expect you to criticize if there is a quirk here & there :slight_smile:

You know, I wonder if this is most of the problem, and the software simply cannot handle lead-ins (i.e. it thinks the start of the recording is the start of the song, instead of the first actual beat.) And then it just generates these extreme hot-takes in some cases due to that.
