    Hi there

    Hello you all, my name is Fast Riff. I'm new on this forum so thought about introducing me properly. I'm 31 years old, coming from Germany and I'm a brony since 4 years. (wow time really flies) My hobbies are obviously watching a lot of cartoons, I'm also a hobby musician, guitar player to be exact and also a big fan of gaming (analog and digital) video games, board games, trading card games and I'm a passionate pen and paper RPG player. Well that's that ^.^

    Happy to help, that solo is awesome. Believe me If you can play an instrument like this, learning guitar is, relatively spoken, fairly easy. As long as you don't mean classical guitar or jazz, seriously those two genres are really really hard. One very rare live performances of Django Reinhardt, he is famous for using only two sometimes 3 fingers while playing.

    Playing with 4 mallets sounds really hard, I've seen that once and it looks and sounds amazing. Well for guitar do you have an acoustic or electrical? If you have an acoustic one you should probably start with the standard chords. You know E-G-A-C-F-D Other than that you can play barred chords, the frets (hope that's the right word) are basically all the same you just adjust the position of your hand. What also helps is using a tabulature instead of notes. (even If you can read notes guitar sheets look confusing) With standard chords you can easily learn some some easy songs for starters I recommend "Rocking in the free world" by Neil Young The verse is pretty much E(1/8th notes)-D(half note)-C(half note) and the chorus is G-D-C-E (all played as 1/8th notes) Hope that helps a little ^-^

    In which ways are you old-fashioned?

    Do you have a smartphone? If yes try the VLC app it plays FLAC files without problem.

    What is your favorite Final Fantasy game?

    Most people instantly say FFVII, but my personal favorites are FFVI and X. Six is my most favorite because of the story and Kefka, never seen someone this wicked. FFX is also my favorite for a different reason, it was finally a Final Fantasy with a vast and difficult endgame content. I Should mention that I never used Yojimbo in a single fight, except for sacrificing him to black bestia attacks. FFVII is still my third favorite, but mostly with a mod that makes the game terrible hard. I think the name was "New Threat" I can absolutely recommend that mod.

    Seen the movie more than once?

    The strange thing about that is, I live in a mix between a city and a town, with around 117k citizens. (ok about 20k of them are students) And we have a big university, there should be more than just me.
  9. Ahh sweet sweet working deadline, time to start my weekend with a little bit Heroes of the Storm. Need gold want Alarak, totally not because he's voiced by John DeLancie :ajlie:

    I'm not trying to win, I've to much bad luck to be a threat XD For your question there is only one answer and you won't like it. Practice practice and more practice. Also a good hint is, practice easy stuff making music is mostly not about being a technical perfect player and also not about playing super complicated stuff. The most important thing is feeling comfortable and having fun. ^-^

    In which ways are you old-fashioned?

    I get very old fashioned when it comes to music and books. For books I really need a hard copy, nothing beats the smell of a new book and I like to have real pages. But with music it get's more old fashioned, I mean yes I use mp3 when I'm not at home but most of my favorite music is on a solid vinyl. The cracking sound when you put it on the phonograph is just marvelous, plus if a CD gets a scratch it's useless, when that happens to a vinyl it gets unique.

    What about your movie theatre experience

    I had a very good experience, the first time I watched it was on premier day, which means I was able to watch it even before it aired in the USA. I live in Germany our movies enter the cinema always on Thursdays, which was October 5th. The ticket seller was definitely not prepared, well on his defense he was in the late 40's and has probably never seen a brony before. His "You-reaaaaally-want-a-ticket-for-that-movie" face was priceless. I was a little surprised that the movie wasn't playing at the smallest room in the cinema, didn't expected that. I took a seat in the back row, since I didn't want to weird out the whole normal audience. But I can also report something strange happening during the view, it appears that giving it a "G" rating (yes in Germany the movie is rated "G", even Cars 3 had a PG rating) was a bad call. Some of the younger kids were leaving the cinema with their parents shortly after the appearance of Tempest Shadow. Later I came to know that this happened in a lot of cinemas, it even made it to the news because of that. But me and most of the audience liked the movie a lot and now I'm hoping the Blu-Ray is released fast. Overall it was a good experience I was expecting a medicore movie and got a roller coaster of feelings, even had tears in my eyes at some point (those who saw it probably know when, I don't want to spoiler)

    Bad episodes this season.

    I can only speak for myself, but this is the first season which no episode I dislike. That only happens on very rare occasion, in mostly every show I watch I find at least one episode I just don't like. I think the last time that happened was the 4th season of Supernatural.

    What's Your Favorite Song In The Soundtrack?

    Choosing only one is really hard. "Of to see the world" is smashing I like the rhythm especially the interlude at the end. "Rainbow" is also a nice powerful song. But I think my most favorite is "One small thing" I just love uplifting tempo songs, the swing feeling in the song really makes it really hard to not suddenly start dancing in the middle of the street. I liked the most other songs too, except for "I'm the friend you need" I don't know why but I don't like it. @Thaliel You're coming from Germany?

    Seen the movie more than once?

    Haha, I'm not the only one crazy enough to watch it more than once. I watched both original playings (we only had those two in our local cinema) and one time in the German dub. And I talked the staff out of a poster they didn't used anymore, and I only had to pay 20€. I think I confused the poor ticket seller at the first time I watched it, but it wasn't a big surprise I think I'm the only brony in town.
  18. On my second cinema visit I watched the German version, since I was interested who does the VA for the new characters. The choices were interesting, If my ears are not fooling me they took a lot of musicians to voice the new characters. I'm pretty sure princess Skystar is voiced by Beatrice Egli (famous German singer) and Tempest is voiced by Maite Kelly (If Kelly family rings a bell) I personally think she was a bad choice for that, she just doesn't sound very evil.

    @WiiGuy XD You just remembered me of the hardest live gig I ever played, who would have known that "99 barrels of oath" is a 12 minute song.
