    I completed it on medium yesterday. It's more memorizing the patterns. I find that helps greatly. Sometimes playing what you actually hear is bad for you. Livin on a prayer got owned on expert by me last night.

    Funny when you completely lose the rhythm nown again.

    Bought my son wii guitar hero full band set, thought it would be great fun for all of us to play on xmas day, only disapointment was that he only has 2 controllers so had to play 2 at a time. Are we right thinking that to use drums, guitars & microphone alltogether we need to buy more controllers? Thought the band set was expensive enough now need to spend another £60 on remotes!

    So, do u have it on PS3, Sal?
    We got it on Wii - but like the other poster said, you got to put the controllers in to make 'em work. Am considering getting the PS3 version.

    Awesome game tho ...

    ...just as good imo.

    You have to be prepared to practise though. Took me hour upon hour of practise to be pretty good at them. Feels strangely realistic after a while, some songs work best if you batter the drum kit. Believe me when I say it's well built!

    Kick drumming is my weakest point - getting better though.

    Perhaps we ought to start a band ..........

    I'm pretty good at the guitar, and I can sing too ( after a few bevvies ;-) )

    You on the drums .........

    Just need some another guitarist, some backing singers and some roadies :thumbsup:

    Remember that Rock Band also works with the GH guitar-not sure on the drums at the mo, but I know their making or have made a patch to make it work - don't know about the Wii version. Rock band 1 and 2 have got great tracklists.

    I got a nice young man in my stocking.
