Now that I have finished the Guitar tour on Medium I have started playing on hard from time to time. I have only played a few songs on hard but I have played about a dozen on Hard Bass when playing the band world tour with my son. Last night we got invited to Moscow for the Hall of Fame gig but with an 8 song set, we decided to wait until this weekend to play it.
So we played some other stuff and I alternated between Medium Bass and Hard Bass depending on the song. We played a two song random set and I gambled and went with Hard and my son says “watch out, it will be Green Grass and High Tides” and sure enough, it was! Off we went and I was doing okay until about 60% of the way in when the tempo really kicks up and the note strings are simply beyond my capability. I ended up failing out which caused us to die since my son didn’t have any overdrive to save me. After that I went back to Medium and we played a couple more songs which I hit 100% on which is pretty unual for me, even on medium. I almost always make a mistake somewhere.
I have requested a replacement Rock Band guitar from EA, hopefully that will come this week. The one we have now really makes my forearm hurt when I play it because you have to press the strum button so hard for it to register.
