About two days after I posted about my inability to get past Vasoline in RockBand, I finally made it through. I was having trouble with the hammer ons which appear throughout the song. I didn’t do that great but at least I made it through and moved on.
This evening was the first chance I really had to play again so I went back to work on the medium tour. After knocking out a couple songs, I ran into another stumper – Metallica’s Enter Sandman. I have been frustrated with the Rock Band guitar and I think we need a replacement. You really have to press the strum bar hard to get it to register which can be very tiring when playing sequences of rapid notes. After failing 3-4 times, I decided to try the Guitar Hero II Explorer guitar. It really is much easier to play and I made it through Enter Sandman without any problems. Yep, we need to get a new Rock Band guitar.
After finishing Enter Sandman, I also completed “Highway Star”, “Flirtin’ with Disaster”, “Train Kept a Rollin'” and “Green Grass and High Tides” without any problems which completes the Medium solo tour on guitar. All I have left to play are some of the songs on the bonus tour as well as some of the songs we have downloaded.
