Finally I have finished Rock Band on Expert. When I first got the game I blasted my way through the entire song list until Green Grass and High Tides, the last song in the game. Between then and now I had put my axe down and had stopped playing as much as I used to. However, over the last month I have reclaimed my former glory and started playing more than ever. This was mainly because a friend of mine is really into it and was moaning that he didn’t have anyone decent to play with. We finished my Rock Band World Tour about 2 weeks ago. Since friday, we have been trying to see who could finish GGHT first as it was the last song I had left (from the original setlist anyway, Ride The Lightning is a bitch).
I finished it earlier today (with 4 stars) and my mate is not happy :). I had a look at some of the guides out there for beating the last very annoying part of the seccond solo and I did it slightly different. Many guides say that you should use your overdrive on the first set of reverse triplets, whammy up on the overdrive between that set and the next lot and then just star power through the 2nd lot aswell. Then it’s just a case of building star power for the last set of triplets. The difference in mine is that my whammy bar is knackered. It slips away and droops towards the ground, meaning that you have to grab it and pull it up to a sensible possition first. This is highly annoying and completely throws you off. So what I did was to overdrive early in the first set, pick up the overdrive off of the first set that is towards the end, pick up the overdrive in between and then overdrive it through the 2nd lot. It worked a treat and got me through to finishing the song. Woop, go me!
Now onto more important news (well, debatable).
I’ve just hit 700 page views today and that got me thinking, can I hit 1,000 before christmas? It’s highly probable at the moment as I’m getting some regular readers now (thank you! :D). Now all I need to do is post more regularly and about important stuff, not me finishing Rock Band.
And Rob…. Rubik’s Cube! Hah, beat you to it.
