Loaded up Beatles too and finished off the last two songs I needed to get 85% on guitar solos. This series is so satisfying for progression, I don’t think any other game has made me feel like it. 10 years ago I was completely hopeless on easy guitar and drums, and I couldn’t even get through vocals.


shudder

Snake notes are the killer on that. So many attempts at the song before I finally got it.

Yeh not good :cry: especially with the early stages of arthritis. Still haven't pass that song yet :x

And a metal week the week before that, a double whammy :| and we get classic rock this week when I don't have time to play the 100+ songs in my library that count :fp:



It's a real toughie solo I can only think of free bird that is harder disc song wise, although panic attack keeps you honest for higher % of the song the final solo on both Lynard Skynard songs are the stuff finger dislocations are made of.

Freebird was the one song on RB3 I couldn’t do :x

Trying to full combo the last 30 or so tunes in my song library and there are a few songs that are just completely kicking my arse. Tangled Up in Blue, Death on Two Legs, Bohemian Rhapsody, Good Vibrations and a bunch of lesser songs with fiddly bits or in one case, a wholly tiresome 60 beat intro(cheers Megadeth). I’ll be really strawberry floating proud of myself if and when it’s done though. :slol:

Tongue Tied is a banger of a tune, though :wub:

I like how they don’t differentiate between *new* DLC and Rock Band Rewind tracks, too

As much as I like The Fratellis, I don't like them in Rock Band :dread: Hopefully someone else has that track so I don't have to play it on all instruments :shifty:

EDIT: Yeh about half of those are rewinds :lol: I guess technically it is new DLC (and DLC has been treated differently than Disc Exports in the past - See Oasis on RB1).

I’ll buy it but I won’t be happy because the fratellis are everything that is wrong with Glasgow.

The Bloodstone motorcycle helmet has Daft Punk inspired animation, no idea what it says/is however.

Dropmix is another music game from Harmonix that uses licenced music. It uses quite a few songs already available in Rock Band but the list above is what's in Dropmix but not yet in Rock Band... that was until we got Commodores announced as DLC.

As much as I like Chvrches, they don’t really have much to do musically for anyone other than the bass (or guitar, depending on the song, but it’s one or the other) and the vocalist :shifty:

I think it’s Under the Tide where Lauren always says live she literally just has one key to press.

Would probably still buy it though

That hasn't stopped Harmonix before :shifty: although it does explain why they're not in the game despite playing it on streams and also admitting to loving the series of games.

He has been physically preparing himself for his solo push to Bloodstone :wub: by the way we have 2 free spaces if anyone wants to re-invite people we have kicked out over the last few weeks to get the season awards. Just make sure you invite them back before week 8 (week 6 starts this Thursday) or they may not unlock the stuff.

The Mother We Share or Bones would be fantastic to sing but I can’t see them popping up - with that said, Pollu by Nirvana has almost no drum part and I think there are a few songs with very little in the way of bass as well so it’s not outwith the realms of possibility.

On a completely different note, my quest to fill combo every song in my library on expert vocals is down to the final tune - it is of course Bohemian Rhapsody. Such difficulty. Very wow.

Good luck with that one, there's no room for the luxury of breathing when doing that solo. Harmonies is easier with 2 other people.

Doesn't look like it's genres this week but a Love theme.



Also it looks like there are different songs on sale (on Xbox) each week. This is the third week in a row where a handful of songs have been reduced, this week it's:
  • Don't You Want Me" - The Human League
  • Love Man" - Otis Redding
  • Electric Love" - Børns
  • Night Fever" - Bee Gees
  • Bad Case Of Loving You (Doctor, Doctor) - Robert Palmer

£1.19 each. Third week where all the ones I'd buy I have all already :fp:



Image

And if you have any of these previously on Xbox:
  • Tell Me Baby
  • Locksley
  • Manu Chao
  • Welcome to the Neighborhood
  • They Say
  • Snoop's Upside Ya Head
  • Get Your Rock On
  • Moving to Seattle
  • Bullets & Guns
  • Supreme Girl
Apparently they're fixed and waiting in the "ready to install" section for Rock Band 4

I’ve been taking a bit of a break from the challenges and just playing the songs I like on Rock Band every now and then.

I’m back for the push to Bloodstone, though. Let’s do this. The rewards get worse and worse though.

(Hoping I’ll have a lot of songs that meet the criteria :shifty: )
