    A lot of places in my area are using it at the demo station. Wonder how long until the guitar end up broken (or missing).

    I got mine at BestBuy and they were well stocked (granted im in midtown manhattan)

    They also has 2 demo stations set up with GH2, so i played for about 20 minutes. I noticed (at least in the freeplay mode which only had the 1st 2 levels unlocked) the order/levels of the songs are nowhere near what was advertised a few weeks ago...Unless that was a special demo disc.

    Any idea if you can just buy the game? I already have the first one with the guitar.

    I'd like to pick it up. Love the first one. But I have no idea when I'd find the time to play it, between BF 2142, Ultimate Alliance, The Soprano's game, and in a week and a half, the Wii.

    Not me, I'll stick to my real guitar. Cool concept though.

    No kidding...last night I played the entire medium lvl of career mode...all 40 songs... (i skipped over easy mode)

    They definaltely ramped up some of the difficulty even in the medium level. and I really suck at hard on GH1, so im worried for when i ramp it up in GH2.

    I love the encores, I like how they are unlocked. Some of my favorite tunes are definately the instrumentals, (Jessica, Misirlou, YYZ)

    Yeah, after I beat the medium level to get access to all the songs, Viv and I played multiplayer... That has got to be the best part of the game... Two guitars on Freebird??? Hell yeah... However, if you want less work, choose the lead guitar on Freebird for multiplayer... I thought I was gonna get less work with my hands hurting with rhythm guitar on that song but ended up with nearly twice the amount of notes including a crapload of solo notes as well... My left wrist nearly fell off after that...

    I kinda wish there was three options for the multiplayer mode though... All the songs only allow you to choose either lead and bass or lead and rhythm... It would've been cool to have all three options for each song...

    Unfortunately I dont have anyone to play with so im kinda pissed that they dont let you play bass or rhythm in single player mode...it opens up so much more replayability (not that it doesnt already have a ton of it already). When they announced that there were other guitar styles to play i guess i missed the fact that these were multiplayer only :(

    My friends and I played through Career Mode on Medium as well. I wished there was a Co-op Career Mode to earn more money for things, but I guess it would be somewhat redundant. My right forearm is sore from strumming (Monkeywrench is fun to play on Hard) and my left thumb developed a blister from holding the guitar in certain positions and transitioning. Misirlou on Expert is just comedy. But one of my friends was able to get 35% on it, though she's probably the best and most consistent GH player of all of us.

    LOVE THIS GAME!!!

    You could play the bass option in the tutorial mode, I believe... Even though you don't earn anything with that...
    Yeah, Viv chooses Expert on that when we play Multiplayer since I play the bass line... I keep us alive...:lol

    I like how the stars turn gold when you get 100%. With GH1 me and my friends kept forgetting which songs we were able to get 100% on.

    I picked it up yesterday, and played through the Easy Mode, which is pretty damn easy. When I get home from work today, I'll actually go and do Medium.

    On another note, I was reading a review or something online about GH2, and they mentioned "Bark at the Moon" and "Cowboy's from Hell" from the first GH. I had to laugh because that's the only two song's I cannot beat on Medium from Part 1. (I won't even attempt Hard)
