    Ugh....been replaying and replaying it (GH3 for the Wii, on hard btw), played some songs on Expert, was able to get to Johnny's solo..twice. And I fail. Gah, by the time I get to there I'm in the red and generally don't have any powerups left...am able to recover a little bit since the first little bit of the solo isn't that bad..but once it gets to those hopos..done, dead'd.

    Rather irritating really...I have no problems with the vast majority of Rock Band on expert, can play a fair bit of GH3 on Expert, beat GH2 on Hard...but I just cannot get past this.

    Kinda noticed something too...

    Rock Band is damn fun, makes you feel like you're..well, in a rock band.
    GH/II/80's makes you feel like a guitar legend...
    GH3 makes you feel like you suck......

    Anyways just wanted to vent a little and see maybe if I could get any advice (I know, I know..practice, practice etc.)

    Also really don't like that you can't just practice the damn song, you have to just restart the battle from the beginning and try again.

    I was going to say "DLC" but then I remembered that you're playing it on the Wii.

    In other words, you're shafted.

    All the Guitar Hero's make me feel bad.

    They're like an abusive husband that won't tell me i'm pretty.

    That used to happen to me when I played on PS2. Hasn't happened to me yet with the Wii yet. :lol 

    I just finished up everything on Easy yesterday...but I know I'm gonna have a hard time with Medium. Anybody have any tips or suggestions?

    I love that song. Georgia has one of the best catelogues of state-related songs.

    "Midnight Train to Georgia." "Rainy Night in Georgia." "Georgia (on my Mind)." "Oh, Atlanta." "That's the Night that the Lights Went Out in Georgia." "Sweet Georgia Brown."

    Judging by the perspective that they put the note band on in the GH games, I'm suprised you guys don't see little color bars on the road when you're driving :D

    Its not the song, its the battle aspect for me. I've really grown to hate them.

    Can't as of yet, and a simple firmware update would allow that, ala keyboard support.

    I just grew distaste for you reading Game Informer and claiming it as your own revelation.
