I understand that this is a sports forum but there has to be a few GH/RB players out there. Hopefully this thread will last.
Anyway, Post your choice of difficulty, favorite songs, least favorite songs, list some achievements (not necessarily Xbox 360 achievements, say if you finally beat that tough song that you working on for weeks, or if you just recently went up a level) that you've made. Post some of your strengths, weaknesses, etc. I'm an expert player, but I'm not the typical expert player that you would see on Scorehero (I hate that forum... been IP banned twice for no reason) that thinks you suck if you play on anything lower than expert. So if you play on easy, go ahead and post here, medium, be my guest, and so on and so forth. And if you play rockband AND guitar hero, discuss both games.
Games I've played: Guitar Hero 3(I want to play GH2 and try Jordan and some of the other hard songs)
Strengths: I'm Good at hammer-ons, I can tap the intro of Dragonforce, Since I've been involved with music since I was 7 years old, finding the beats and rhythms come very easy to me. I have fast fingers from 13 years of playing the piano.
Weaknesses: Composure. I can pass the intro of Through the Fire and Flames(Dragonforce), but I'll fail in the "easier spots" because I'll get to excited. Medium speed alt-strumming(strumming back and forth instead of just down strumming)
Favorite Songs: One(Metallica), Cliffs of Dover(Eric Johnson), Paint it Black(Rollingstones), Through the Fire and Flames(Dragonforce)
Least Favorite Songs: Raining Blood(Slayer), Kool Thing(forgot the artist name)
Some Achievements: I've beaten every song on hard. On expert, All I have left on Career Mode is Raining Blood and the last Boss Battle(that's gunna be a b*tch). I've 5 starred half of career mode plus a few songs on the bonus list. Can't yet beat the hardest song(Through the Fire and Flames), but I can beat the intro.(If you know anything about TtFaF in Guitar Hero 3 on expert, you know that the Intro is almost impossible to play with one hand, so I strum with my elbow and help my left hand out with hitting some of the buttons with my right hand.
Instrument of Choice: Lead Guitarist
Favorite Songs: I've only played RockBand twice so I don't really have a favorite song yet.
Least Favorite: Definitely the Fallout Boy song.
Achievements: Compared to Guitar Hero, the lead guitarist part in Rock Band is very easy. In 2 days, I've beaten every single song on expert, including 4 starring Green Grass and High Tides, which is Rockband's Through the Fire and Flames/Jordan. I got 5 golden stars on 3 different songs, I 5 starred over 30 other songs, the rest are 4 stars.
I don't have an Xbox 360 yet, but I'm getting one with XBL Gold in about 3 or 4 weeks. If any of you play Guitar Hero and is a gold user, even if you don't play on expert. I'm not the typical GH ass*ole that thinks you suck because you don't play on expert. I started on easy mode just like everyone else did. In fact, I've failed my first easy mode song ever, but quickly became and expert player within 2 weeks.
I need to play Through the Fire and Flames(expert) on co-op with someone. Don't worry about the intro. I can tap my way through the intro on Lead Guitar. So if I can have someone else who can play expert play the Rhythm Guitar. The intro is way easy on rhythm guitar.
But I'll have to get a 360 and the game first, so I'm saying this in advance. Anyone that has 360, GH3, and plays on expert. If you don't play on expert, that's cool as well. It's just more fun with both players playing on expert.
