I know what you mean. I play guitar and piano in RL. As you move up the difficulty ladder, you're asked to play in more and more "realistic" ways. Very cool.
Two more questions:
1) If I both sing and play guitar at the same time, do I need to get Five Stars in BOTH areas to get a five-star, or can I get one of the two and make my five stars?
2) I bought the limited edition pack, with the mic, guitar and drums for Beatles Rock Band. Can I go out and buy Rock Band II (PS3) and use those peripherals to play it? I am hooked!
And don't forget al the downloadable songs available, I think around 800 or so? Lots of good stuff in there.
