I am trying to 4 star or 5 star roundabout with no fail on key guitar expert and the best I have got is (I think) a 45% and maybe I can 4 star possibly soon (maybe I don't know how positive I sound but maybe if I continue to practice) :)
Victory of the week: after about 25 play-throughs in a row last night, I finally 5-stared "Caught In A Mosh" on hard to unlock the achievement for 5-starring all RB3 songs on hard. I did it on regular drums, which is my preferred instrument. I had about 6 to go and was able to pick off the others by playing keys or bass, or bass with the keyboard, but CiaM was killing me on all fronts!
It was pretty agonizing the three plays before success when the fifth star would have barely a sliver left when the dang song would end.
I finally FC'd a song on Expert pro keys.. i have never done this, i just started getting in too keys again after 5 months of not touching my keyboard that i then would only 50% most of the songs i played.
Of course the song was easy, (El Monstro), but I'm happy enough with that.
I'm terrible at consistency on keys.... LOL.
pizzapizza do you even play RB?
The first step is always the hardest. If you continuously shoot for FCs, your consistency will improve, and your general ability as well.
Thought i was the only one.
I was never good at keys when I first got them (About a week or two after RB3 came out).
I actually gave up.. and than went back and got to where i was 70% some warmups/60% moderate and sucking on everything else about 2 months after I gave up.
Than i gave up again... and really didn't touch my keyboard much unless a song i really liked the keyboard came out... and when i came back i have been working a lot harder and actually been seeing 80s and 90s a lot more which i like :)
^ I had a similar situation when I got my keys. Once I got over the initial shock, that keys weren't going to be the "cake walk" to play that I had anticipated, I set them off to the side.
Recently, I started over again, thanks to some inspiring video's by Skyp1e, and also using the "practice mode" to get my bearings, I've found it to be much more enjoyable. Now, I still suk at keys, lol. But, I'm making decent progress and my hands are responding better. Interval placement etc. has become a little more natural. Funny how practice makes everything easier :)
