Pls improve guitar pro for RB4. Any guitar, no mute, dynamic difficulty
Beat Battery, Blackened, and And Justice For All by Metallica on expert guitar while keeping a fledgling expert bassist afloat.
AsianSteev: if you can read this, put more Ska songs on the RBN! Please?

Tonight I got the #1 vocals score on Kokko - Eagle of Fire. This is an RBN song and on 360 only right now, so this means I'm #1 in the world! I live with the guy who has figured out the best scoring path and I out-squeezed him by about 40 points. The cool thing is, I could definitely squeeze out a bunch more points from the first overdrive activation. Will probably try it again soon to more guarantee my spot there.
He's a really good vocalist and I tend to suck at squeezing in general, so to do this is extremely amazing for me.
Insert signature here.
My victory this week is related to the one instrument I never played so far: Vocals. Decided to start in RB1's solo tour. Expert was too much right away, even for songs I knew quite well, but I sightread passed almost everything on hard. My nemesis songs: 'Say it Ain't So', 'Should I Stay or Should I Go' and 'Reptilia'. 'Gimme Shelter' is tricky too. Most other songs happen to be nicely in my normal range.
Now past the halfway mark on expert too, stuck on 'Reptilia'. Once I'm past that one, only 'Gimme Shelter' can stop me from beating it all. I find the final tier the easiest of them all!
After that, it's time to Voxtar/Voxbass the RB1 tour. Achievements are one reason, finally finding out how it was to play the RB1 tour is another (I started rhythm gaming after RB2 was already out). Should not be too hard on bass, I reckon. Looking forward to it.
Multi-tasking... Messing up many things at once!
Got my Fist FC and Gold Star on Expert Drums today.
4 singles - 2 I'll get (Queensryche and one Staind).
I haven been laying off RB for a couple of weeks to let a foot injury heal, but I still have a victory of sorts.
I managed to get a used set of Ions w/ 2 cymbals and a Rockpedal pedal for $150. The yellow pad is about to need replacing, but it's still a good deal. The only problem is I tried it out and didn't like it at all... Everyone says it'll take getting used to, but.... Well, I wasn't even close to liking it. Oh well.
And remember, everything is adjustable. Height, angle, spacing, and so on. If a drum seems out of reach, or you don't like the angle your stick bounces back at, change it!
It's all right. Everything will work out fine.
It's all right. We're going to the end of the line!
I didn't go with an ION when I upgraded, though. I picked up a Roland TD-4S, and I swear for the first week I was almost certain I'd made a huge mistake. I seriously couldn't play Rock Band with it at all, because the "technique" I'd learned playing the standard RB drums didn't translate well to an actual instrument. In particular, I couldn't hit the mesh head snare without double-hitting because I had virtually no stick control, since all I really needed to do with the RB drums was smack the head and then pick the stick up to smack again. My touch was so incredibly heavy that every hit bounced. I eventually got past it (though the left hand took much longer than the right), and now I wouldn't switch back for the world.
Bowties are cool.
