Usually, after I finish a song for the first time, I either feel satisfied with the loadout I chose or I feel that it's obvious what I should have done. But Painkiller was a bit of a different story, because it has a couple choices that I'm curious what people think about.
I used Road Rage/Blast Notes/Super Guitar, which is pretty much what I always use for "sightreads." I know that if I actually shoot for a better score that I should use Jackpot, and that's what I'd plan to do, especially because of the song's ending, which is where the dilemma arises.
I'm actually torn about whether Super Guitar or Super Drums is the better choice here. Drums has a solo at the beginning, which is pretty much worthless, but it also has one at the end, which with Jackpot could yield a truckload of points. However, there is also a LONG sustain on Guitar that actually holds through the entire Drum Solo. So on this run, I actually just held the Guitar Sustain and ignored the drum solo completely. Fortunately I ended up getting Gold Stars during that hold. But do you think it would be better to go Super Drums and Jackpot on that solo, as opposed to holding the sustain on Super Guitar and Jackpot?
