if you don't like slam it's either because

a) you can't do it
b) you don't turn in EVERY possible place to turn (there are LOTS of techniques to this song)
c) you suck.

it's that simple, sirs. Slam is an excellent song, chalked FULL of tricks that puts your technique to the ultimate test, it's got 16th runs w/ turns, double steps inside of 16th runs, insanely twisty 16th runs, triples, and 16th doubles, and even ends with quads.

if you don't like it, chances are it's because you're doing it incorrectly as to how it SEEMS to be made to be played or because you just can't pass it

It's a nice song and all, but I don't like it because of how insanely tiring it is. And I fail to see any tricks you can use to hit the 16th JUMPS at the end. That's just pure stamina, seizure-feet, and, in my case, luck.

People say that i have a lot of stamina but no matter what the song is if u play it long enough and your confident with your stepping u will feel less tired when ur playing regardless of how hard it is. Even in songs like Dignity i dont get as tired as I used to. You will learn to pace yourself and find easier ways to hit the steps in a less tiring way especially in songs like Slam. Once i figured out those turns and stopped spazzing out the song it became easy as pie :) mmmmmm. There is an easy way to do every song it's just a matter of dedication that helps you get it. Nobody is just a natural at this game it takes practice and determination.

Wow i feel like my old football coach lol

I passed it back on a Premiere2, when it counted. I'm glad I did that before the machine was updated to prex3 then exceed2... those mixes mislead MANY pumpers into thinking their good by passing a hard song. Stupid new grading system... :wink:

First time passing it was on a Premiere 3, I think, 65 misses or something.
It's the Nightmare I'm scared of. What a monster.
Ha, and back when it was 'the song', I used to think CanCan was worse. Funny about that.

I clear it most times on combo battle oddly enough on PREX3... never cleared it on PREX1 cleared it on Premiere 2... varying grades depending on how drained I am that day.

While yes I do suck, I do like the crazy steps for Dignity, Canon D, Solitary 2 and Blazing, and I can't pass them for shit.

So much for that theory...

Hmm thats not entirely true... Slam's steps are made to please everyone... the double steps make a great FS chart so does hard....

So I'd say anyone can enjoy Slam.

Plus I'd say Turkey March is harder than Slam on random... on a Premiere 2 with an MK3 board... lol

All the slowdown cause it to look like one big mess...
