    Thanks mate, it means a lot to me Awsum Face.

    I was really afraid that people would say it's way over-charted and all I did was spam notes everywhere, because I know it looks that way. I did try not to chart both hands, but it just felt weird not to, because I can clearly hear notes being played there, it would just feel wrong if I didn't fret it Smile.

    Sorry it was so difficult, but I really like that song Smile.

    Piano is really hard to chart. I mean, there are only 5 fret buttons and there are like 88 keys on a keyboard XD.

    You did very well. While the song demanded it resemble a spam chart, you made it hard while still sensible. I could always follow it and all the changes made sense.

    Whoo, time to get down to reviewin'. I'll probably end up typing decent length reviews for each one... yaaaay for spoilers!

    Time for my results/reviews...

    BSRaven
    Spoiler:
    Song: Blood Shot
    Artist: Blues Saraceno
    Chart by: BSRaven

    Note: using () to represent Hopo's.
    In the beginning, I can't tell if there's a guitar playing the g-(r) part, I just hear a chugging guitar right after the g+r chord before that part. I'm going to guess you did that to keep it reasonable though, or free from clutter.
    There's a small issue for consistancy at :41 seconds remaining. The part where it usually was a (y)-(r)-(g), turned into a (y)-(r)-g. I don't know if this is an error on the part of my set up or what, but it's kind of odd.
    I'd compare this song like a good truck. It's solid, durable, and long lasting. This chart isn't bad, quite the opposite. I rather enjoyed it.

    A few minor errors that might not be errors are what kept this chart from being a very good chart.

    Zpj
    Spoiler:
    Song: La Campanella
    Artist: Franz Liszt
    Chart By: Zpj

    I'm just going to put this out there, the song is beautiful. That being said, it looks like a god damned clusterfuck. Therein lies the interest though, it's pretty accurate.
    At roughly the 3 Minute remaining part, where you charted both hands on the piano, that's where it get's confusing. I can hear both hands playing, and each to their own right could've been used individually and have not ruined the song at all. It shows how much work you've put into this song, but, that confuse idiots like me...
    Kvlt

    Spoiler:
    Song: Prosthetic Erection
    Artist: Annotations of an Autopsy
    Chart By: Kvlt

    From the title, I could tell that this song is going to test my impartiality, so here goes...

    Well... I was right. Did not care for the song, but, the chart was good. REALLY good. This is something that would not be out of place in a black metal song pack. I've gone through this song several times, and I can't find a single gripe with it... god damn, something's wrong with me. The only things I could POSSIBLY think of were purely of the aesthetic and might have lowered chart quality.

    Solid reviews Jama, very good. I wrote pretty much the same thing, however that got lost due to a clean install of 7. :/

    However, I found quite a few more errors in BSRs. The chart seemed messy and was oddly charted in the solo. The root of the problem seemed to be in the beat syncing. It seemed sloppy and therefore the notes were off the beatlines and it looked like a Puppetz chart.

    By pig I meant thread, would you prefer beast, or some other noun? Motha fukka perhaps?

    I'm not sure whether I should take that as a compliment or an insult. On the compliment hand, compared to Puppetz charts. On the insult side, Puppetz charts do suck at beatsynching sometimes...

    Yeah sorry, should've clarified. Puppetz's beatsyncing is from what I've seen, extremely messy, and it's obvious that he synced many notes without the guide of the BPM lines. It seemed synced decently, not perfect, but it wasn't horrible. You can get that perfect level by making sure all your Beatlines are dead on first. You use dB right? Might I recommend EOF for at least syncing? I use a mixture of both for my charts and I find EOF to be much more flexible when syncing.

    I totally agree about EOF.
