Default Holy crap I passed Dragonforce on Expert!

I just did it. I can't believe it. Got 83% and 251k score.

(in case you have no idea what I'm talking about, I just beat the Dragonforce song in Guitar Hero III on Expert difficulty which is like super duper hard).

I believe the game doesn't let you fail it on easy.

The only song I have left to beat now is "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" on Expert. It's the DLC version where you play the devil's part which is really hard as some of you may know. But with some practice, I'll have to see.

That's awesome man! I can't do One on Expert unfortunately. I'll prob never be able to do Dragonforce, though I can sort of do a little of the intro but very hit and miss at that.

God damn... 83% on expert?

I don't think I can get 1% on expert. Though I've probably only played Guitar Hero (any of them) for about 5 hours total since the games have been out.

One is actually pretty easy. If you always lose on that very fast solo part, just save up full starpower, and just alternate between first two frets (so hold down red, and tap yellow really fast for the first sequence), and double strum really fast, and activate the star power only when you get into the red (so try to activate it after the first 3-note fast sequence so that your starpower lasts you to that part where it has the staircase pattern that goes up and down).

Thanks, I'll give it a go. I don't actually get stuck at that bit as I normally get further than the bit at the start of the solo which is tapped on a real guitar but after that my hand starts to die and I go another 30 seconds or so and just slowly lose the plot and then fail. 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.
