yeah I would like to see a system where you got just one full playthrough but I completely understand why they would not implement something like that.
WGG Radio- SgtDill- Sting never saw a song where he didn't think, "You know, I think it would be better with 2 more minutes of chorus at the end."
I think that the creators should choose a "demo start/end point" in their song while authoring them (sticking with the current time restrictions, of course).
That way, they can showcase what they wish to, or what they think people would enjoy playing or listening to, instead of long keyboard intros or something similar.

I think that would be too annoying that I wouldn't care. Personally, the demo length as it is works fine. I can get a feel of if I completely hate the song, am indifferent, love it, etc even from that short moment. If I am enjoying the song enough that I get frustrated that it stops, from there I tend to either buy the whole song, look for a video chart on YouTube, or look for a way to at least hear the song itself somewhere.
I am a person who is indifferent to difficulty though. I buy songs that are super easy and super hard and in between. I just buy based on if I like the song or not and if it's fun to play or not.
Insert signature here.
I am not sure I agree with the "start anywhere" idea, but I do tend to agree that the demo should at least start when the chosen instrument starts and not just the beginning of the song. Particularly for vocals. Maybe allow the charter to select start points for each instrument?

I just wish it was 1 minute instead of 30 seconds. Goth Girls doesn't really get into the guitar part until right as the demo cuts off.
I also wish the Buy Now was a little better implemented, since you have to get kicked back to the main menu, but I understand why that is.
I think there are some tweaks that can probably be implemented to improve the demo system (e.g. a previous suggestion to not start at the beginning of a song is a good one), but the overall purpose of this awesome new feature is to give you a heads up on the look and feel of the track - not what the entire track is like.
I mean, most of the tracks are already .99c - does one really need to be that fastidious in his or her song selection at those reduced prices? It's like bringing coupons to Aldis.
