What is the right way? I am still trying to get 5 stars on medium and will make the jump to hard this week/weekend. I have it for the Wii BTW so I don't think we can battle. You'd kick my ass anyway.


i think he means playing with 4 fingers (index on green, middle on red, ring on yellow, blue on pinky)...i'm trying to teach myself to do the same. for hard/expert you are supposed to shift down so pinky on orange, ring on blue, etc and play green/red with your index (i think)


Oh... I play with 4 fingers now and will need to slide my hand down when going to hard.

I actually only use 3 fingers, even on Expert. I never got the hang of using my pinky while playing real guitar, and so far the same is true for Guitar Hero. Luckily my hands are big enough I can stretch them pretty far to cover any 3 note chords, and I just slide my hand up and down the neck when I have to switch from the top to bottom quickly.

I use all 4 fingers because I'm a god at guitar, ask your mom, and its easier to keep track.

However, I have small hands, ask your mom, and i move down sometimes.

So far I breezed through easy (Raining blood was the only one I had to try twice)

And I'm a quarter through medium (Pretty easy as well)

Hard should be fun

Expert looks frickin impossible.

Anyone got the PC version?? Can I play Xboxers??

I'm at about your skill level Yoda. Have 5 stars on all but 1 song on medium, but I am having a very tough time on Hard.

And now that I just got a Wii last weekend, this might take a back seat for a while...

Good freaking lord I can't pass Talk Easy to Me on hard right now... So hard. And I had the song in my head when I woke up this morning. I'll try more this weekend.

A tip from a guitarist, me, if you can't get a song put it down for a while and come back to it. Usually you'll do better if you give your brain a little rest.

I can't count the amount of times I've got pissed off trying to figure out a solo then put the guitar down and the next day got it on the first try.

Yeah with GHII I couldn't pass one of the last songs on Expert and eventually I got so pissed I didn't play for like a week. The next time I turned it back on, I beat it on the 2nd try.

I passed the first two songs on hard. Only 80% but that was what I got when I first played on medium so I'm pretty psyched.

I'm doing decent on hard. Although the hammer on / pulloffs are such BS. They are nothing like the real timing. I swear to god I'm timing them correctly (since I know how to play the songs) but its not registering correctly.

Also I have found COD4 multiplayer which is the greatest thing ever

My new challenge since I beat the game on expert is I'm trying to learn to play left-handed.

It's even more difficult than I imagined. Though going back to the Guitar Hero II game, I was able to beat the whole thing on Medium left-handed. But I can't pass any of the songs at all on hard. And I can't do chords. Weird to think I probably used to be this bad playing right handed.
