With the announcement of RBN I thought it would be fun to start trying to make note charts for music that my friends and family have released. I've run into a few problems.
One is what I'm pretty sure are buzz rolls. My step-dad's music is kinda like jazz, and the drummer plays a lot of them. The only thing I can think of would be to just chart them as 16th note triplet rolls.
Another thing that I've never heard of being in the game is brushes. Since they are supposed to be one continuous sound there isn't any way to perfectly chart them, but I thought I might try quarter or eighth notes depending on the song.
But something I'm sure Harmonix has dealt with before is notes on the guitar that don't sound like they have a particular tone, just kind of a popping or tapping sound. How would you chart those? (Also, is there a real name for them?)
One last question is about how many instruments we have to put on each song. I know we've had no singing, but would they accept my aunts music, most of it only containing vocals and guitar? I read somewhere on ScoreHero's charting company website that the songs only needed one, but has Harmonix officially commented on this?
Sorry for the wall of questions, but if anyone has any answers or suggestions for any of them, let me know!
