Thanks for your thoughts.
01:09:813 (2,3) and 01:14:845 (1,2) these two parts are almost the same (talking about music) and 01:10:587 (3) and 01:16:006 (2) these two reverse sliders are exactly the same with circle with reverse arrow on the downbeat, but here 01:09:813 (2,3) the (2) slider ends on the downbeat, but 01:14:845 (1,2) (1) slider starts on the downbeat and they have different length. I don't wanna say that the rhythm is ruined but when i tryed to tap with my finger folowing the notes it somehow felt uncofmortable. Not sure though, just wanted to share my thoughts, please reply your opinion about this one.
I wouldn't call these almost the same melodies; I'd say they are noticably different, as expected for a guitar solo. The downbeats that I don't map with a strong beat (for example 01:10:200') are usually beats starting the second measure of the hypermeasure, which is usually less significant than say the first or third measure. The guitar notes on 01:10:200 are muted, and then become louder again on 01:10:587', which is why I decided to put a new slider on here instead.
For 01:14:845 (1) the guitar notes here are held (actually they get plucked again at 01:15:039', but I thought it was best to cover this over one whole slider for this difficulty) so a 2/1 slider covers this fine. The next guitar note starts on 01:16:006', which is why a new slider is here. The note goes over the downbeat, which is why it is mapped to a reverse arrow rather than a new hard note.
This guitar solo isn't the most intuitive relative to the music it is accompanying, so it would be natural if the mapping also followed that too.
02:39:232 (2,3) - same the (2) slider ends on the downbeat and the folowing is offbeat one. I understand that you trying to follow the guitar sound, it's not bad i must say, but when you try to play it you feel like missing smth.
As before; the guitar isn't following an intuitive rhythm, so the mapping would follow suit to. I don't think it wouldn't make sense to map a basic rhythm across this section that wouldn't match the guitar, which is obviously the highlight of this part of the music.
02:48:329 (2) - this offbeat slider is totally fine though, because he doesnt end on white tick
Well, I was just following the guitar here, nothing more.
01:12:522 (3) - i'm not sure but maybe move this slider higher a bit or rotate it by 30 clockwise, because else the flow is not really good
I believe the flow is playable here. 3 points staight into 4, and the angle isn't anything too demanding, although slightly less intuitive than standard, which I believe fits well with the guitar.
01:16:974 (2,3,4) - this triangle is not good, better move 4 somewhere
This wasn't really supposed to be a triangle, but since it's close to one, I nudged the pattern slightly.
02:53:942 (1,2) - this sliders is off rhythm IMO, better use a couple of non reverse sliders or instead of (2) place a note and a slider
Alright. Changed the rhythm slightly.
00:02:845 (3,4) - how about adding whistle hitsound to the beginning of sliders, also you sure about this pattern?
I think keeping Whistles to the downbeats is good for now to keep with the calmness of this part of the music and to accompany the pianos rather than solely the vocals. I don't see any glaring issues with the current pattern either.
00:25:684 (2) - moving this to (x:164,y:208) makes it more readable and eazier to aim after the stream
I don't see how readability could be an issue here; there are no overlaps at all, and there are no aiming issues either since the angle over 00:25:200 (4,1,2) is sharp, whereas jumping at an obtuse angle after the stream like in your example could be a little messier for the player due to momentum.
01:46:200 (2) - and this one you can move to the end of folowing slider
As before, I don't see anything wrong with this, and I'd much prefer how it is now to your suggestion.
well this is it, in order to not clutter up the thread i will catch you in game if i will have new thoughts
and again, good luck

just a couple of ideas, i think you will reject but still
02:33:039 (3,4,5) - how about accenting the guitar solo and changing it to smth like -snip- with only whistle on the beginning of 3, whistle on 4, clap only on this time 02:34:200 and clap at the end of folowing slider. the flow is bad but i'm talking only about figures, because i think they are freshing the rhythm, also i think there are some sinergy with this 02:39:232 (2,3) and this 02:47:748 (1,2,3) because all parts breaking monotone clap sound, and all paerts are accenting the solo guitar, which obviously shouldnt be ignored
Not a bad idea. I avoided using a 1/2 slider since that's a bit much for this difficulty, but I did try to use the red ticks.
01:07:877 (3) - why the slider instead of just note? the problem is that hitsound at the end of it doesnt fit the rhythm IMO I used a slider since there is a drum roll over this section, which I'd rather not cover with anything else other than a slider for this difficulty.
02:33:813 (4) - same as for normal how about making here smth special? Alright, fair enough.
01:10:200 (1) - isnt this slider 2/8? Sounds like it, but a 1/8 slider would be really awkward to play. 1/4 cover it just fine.
01:16:974 (2,3) - i still think there is a spacing issue, if its not a triangle then can you please tell me the secret of this moment? http://i.imgur.com/YMrIgYR.png
01:19:877 (3,4,5) - maybe remove clap hitsounds? also last slider should end here 01:20:942 if i hear the music correctly The snare drum is still present in the music, so I don't see a reason to remove them. I decided on ending on the downbeat so that it feels like a better transition into the break rather than it being completely blank.
03:42:716 - nothing reaaly important, just how about setting here 30% volume and then 50%? Seems fine for now, but I may consider it.
01:07:877 (3) - this slider is too loud The drums are loud too, though I will consider it.
01:10:200 (1,2) - i'm not sure about this, imo this 01:10:200 (1,2) and this 01:12:522 (1,2) - are different moments, so better use here 1/8 reverse slider as in previous diff Listening to it more carefully, there are definitely notes on the blue and red ticks, and this rhythm is much more intuitive to play than ntroducing 1/8s here.
01:35:748 (3,4,5,6) - how about changing it to the -snip- A cross-jump pattern feels a lot more fun to play in my opinion, and I believe the flow is better as it is currently.
02:21:426 (1) - how about rotate it by minus 40 replace with double and then make a path of 02:22:006 (4,5,6,7,8) - like that -snip- Kind of similar to before. 02:21:039 (6,7,1) is currently a triangle. and the spacing and pattern of 02:22:006 (4,5,6,7,8) feels more fun to play as it is right now.
02:55:200 (3) - i think this slider should end here 02:55:297 and its reverse sider I hear this guitar note as being held up to the blue tick, and I don't hear anything significant on the red tick for it to be mapped with a repeat.
02:58:587 (1,2,3,4,1,1) - this part is too loud Seems fine to me. The music doesn't really get softer here, so there's no need to lower the volume.
03:36:329 (4,5,6,7,8) - how about making a "way" as i decided before?
03:41:749 (7,8,1,2,1,1,1) - too loud imo Will consider it, but I'll leave it for now.
whew, teh end
looking forward for reply
