Back to the 70's for my second request:
"Couldn't Get It Right" - Climax Blues Band
The server I host all of these images on has been bombarding me with 503 errors this week. So if some tiers refuse to load, that's probably why. As a result, I've had to upload some to imgur temporarily. I'll add them to the "/rbtiers" directory once things are back to normal. I also do not have any tiered packs for this update due to the same issues.
It's always something.
America - "A Horse With No Name"
Climax Blues Band - "Couldn't Get It Right"
Crack the Sky - "A Sea Epic"
David Bowie - "The Man Who Sold the World"
Foster the People - "Warrant"
Jonathan Coulton - "I'm Your Moon"
Katatonia - "Dancing December"
Katatonia - "Tomb of Insomnia"
Magnetic Fields, The - "I Don't Believe You"
Metallica - "The Thing That Should Not Be"
Ocean Colour Scene - "Hundred Mile High City"
Radiohead - "Backdrifts"
Smiths, The - "How Soon Is Now?"
UFO - "Doctor Doctor (Live)"
UFO - "Only You Can Rock Me (Live)"
"A Horse With No Name" would be 0 on Pro Guitar if not for the solo; the whole song is literally two chords over and over. Drums get a 3 because of the half-beat gallop and the extra percussion.
"A Sea Epic" was pretty cool; all sorts of stuff was changing around in this one. The tiers were a bit difficult to decide on. Drums are pushing 4 dots because of the fast rolls towards the end and the infrequent tempo changes, but the rest of the song is very tame. Bass is spastic in this one.
"I'm Your Moon" was originally tiered much higher on guitar until I found out all those doubled notes during the verses are just very neatly-timed reverb; they were so clear, I really thought they were all individual notes. The rest of the song is straightforward, but still sounds fun. Can't go wrong with Jonathan Coulton.
"Hundred Mile High City" gets devils on drums for a constant up-tempo beat in an odd time signature, among other technical maneuvers. Guitar and Pro Guitar are a very strong 5.
What I would give to have "How Soon Is Now?" in the game...awesome choice to have tiered. I love this song.
The organ work in "Only You Can Rock Me (Live)" was really impressive; almost reminded me of something you would hear in a Kansas or Yes song in areas.
Also, congrats to Gunsrock for being the first person to request all the tiers to an entire album in my thread. I will place all the songs under an album header in the song list, once I can upload the tier images to my server. I'm thinking about picking up this album sometime in the future; I thoroughly enjoyed it, so thanks for introducing me to the whole thing.
I will add the tiers to the song list tomorrow. It's late and I'm tired so I need to get some sleep for now.
People can request 2 songs this time again.
We need some ELO!

Relistened to both of them. For Warrant, I only really heard audible guitar around 3:45 and onwards, did you hear it anywhere else? Quite surprised vocals aren't a dot or two higher, actually (Mark Foster's range is impressive in this one, and some parts sound like they would be hard to replicate); same goes for legacy keys' tiers. Nonetheless, thanks for finishing off Torches for me!
A Horse with No Name looks just about perfect to me. Drums would definitely be fun on it, and would be a fun combination of congas and drums. Bass would be pretty groovy too. Would definitely buy it.
Anyways, my next request will be "Surfin Bird" by The Trashmen. :P
