I came to a realization of something in Rockband that was driving me crazy.
The angular/isometric view has some weird side effects.
If it's zoomed out, it's tricky to tell what frets are on the 'sides'.
What happened often is I'd glance at the left side of the screen and see a note coming down with a '5'
right behind it. I'd automatically think it's on fret 5.
In actuality, it's probably on fret 6. Same thing happens on 'right notes' - often the note is 1 fret lower than the number it's covering.
I think I tend to avoid using the fret numbers a lot, and try to live by note 'offsets' - i.e. how many frets away from the previous note. I use it for the first note of course, to 'lock on'.
I'm really hoping they have some sort of '% correct' on the practice modes, so I can see if I'm getting any better as i try to level up.
The 'miss indicator' isn't obvious enough (especially on bends) and I often have no idea how many notes I missed (or which ones)
