Has happened about 20 times now, and haven't had a chance to play much in the last month.

Maybe your tech will save some of my hand strength for the last bit.
I know what you mean. When I first beat One, it was after 1.5 hours of trying to beat Raining Blood and when I finally beat that one, I'm like ok let's try beating One. And all the while before the solo I was thinking how to get past the "fast solo" part cause that's where I was getting stuck and I just tapped the first two frets instead of trying to do the proper three fret sequence. Your hand does indeed get very tired after that for the "outro". The first time I beat it, I was in the red when I finished the song, so just barely beat it.

The game wont let you fail it during the credits, but when you play it as a normal song you can fail it.

I also haven't beaten Lou on Expert. It depends too much luck for me to spend time on it. I got really close once and got the proper power up at the right time, but used it 1 second too late and Lou was in the red, but then got back up.

What I've noticed with GH is that if you can't play a part it is better to not play at all. If you hit the wrong notes you'll lose a lot faster. This doesn't work well on the harder settings but on easy you can get fairly far without playing half of the notes.

BluRay sucks.




Edit:

And congrats on Dragonforce. I have short, stubby fingers. I suck horribly at GH3 and even more so at actually playing the guitar.
