Hey. 2 of the "4 songs of death" are completed. I didn't have much of an issue with Cliffs of Dover. I got through it alright. I failed the intro to The Number of Beast many times before breaking through and surviving the rest of the song.
The 2 songs from the masters of metal completely kicked my ass. I could not get through the rush of notes on Raining Blood. I even practiced it on slow more than enough times and I still could not get through it.
One completely discouraged me. I play that on guitar all the time and that solo near the end of the song completely kicked my ass. Remember my RPG analogy? Yup, kicking ass, kicking ass, BAM! Sudden death. I didnt even bother to practice that. Felt all dejected. My boy dubbed those, "the new triplets of death." lol I called it a session and said hell with it. I'll give it a shot later.
On a side note, my boy is battling Lou on Medium. The boy is on his way to rock star status. Later.
