Song: Electricity is in My Soul       Caleb
We need more songs from these guys, too bad they said it will probably never happen because of all sorts of complications. :(

Artist: Dave Matthews Band       "ohmygod" Caleb
Why do people have to rate these so poorly solely based on the song itself? Rate the CHART. These charts were actually really fun, and I know it's all opinion, but when I see people giving "mercy" a one instead of something more reasonable, that's just not right. Mercy was a great guitar song, you have to admit it.

Artist: Roy Orbison       Caleb
So I was digging through my dad's old CD collection that he left behind, and amongst the matchbox 20 and 30 seconds to mars, I found Roy Orbison's greatest hits.

My music library just got 20% cooler.

Artist: Bullet for My Valentine       Caleb
So my little brother's friend loves this group, and says that I suck because I didn't buy any songs from them.
I say, "They suck, they sound just like A7x and I cannot enjoy their music."
He goes: "Well, A7X is OK but BFMV is way better. They're thrash metal!"

THRASH METAL

All the while he is wearing a RATM flat cap.

Song: Inversion       "Overtiered." Caleb
This is way overtiered on guitar, the solo is not hard at all, and really the only difficult part is the really fast tap trill but that is over quickly.

Pack: Yes 01       "Review for Guitar" Caleb
Wow, finally a Yes pack is released for rock band! It contains five of some of their greatest hits and all of the songs are great to listen to, and promise good times to be had....or do they? Is the pack really as good as it was hyped up to be? Read on and find out!

Heart of the Sunrise:
Now I am very familiar with this song, and listening to it I don't hear a lot of good guitar riffs. Sure, there is the opening riff that pervades the song, but outside of that the guitar seems very minimal, not very challenging. So when I saw the tier for the song, it kind of confused me. When I played it, I found the opening riff was fun to play. Alt strums and hammer ons make it pretty challenging. The riff pops up quite a bit, but sadly it is the only thing that makes it even remotely challenging. The rest of the song is just as I expected. Long, and not very guitar friendly. A good song though, and pretty much like "Riders on the storm" in the fact that there isn't a lot going on, but it still seemed to be enjoyable for what it is. Bass and keys seem much more fun. 3/5

I've Seen All Good People:
This song is one of my favorite Yes songs. It starts with an acoustic intro, witch is pretty much the same chords over and over. If you think the song is too boring, well up until that point it gets it's second wind and comes back with a kick. It gives you an awesome bouncy kind of riff, with various guitar licks scattered throughout to keep it interesting. In the middle of all of this is an intense solo with lots of hammer ons and scales. A very good guitar song, and I recommend this one to all. 4/5

Owner of a Lonely Heart:
Obviously the easiest song, it's Yes's pop hit and not one of their best musically. Surprisingly though it was a decent play. The song was easy without being boring, and it had a cool solo. Not much else to say really. 3/5

South Side of the Sky:
This one I am not as familiar with, but it sounded pretty cool in the preview. It starts with a chugging guitar riff with some fast hammer on licks, and arpeggios and scales for the chorus. It was pretty fun. But then the piano break happened. 4 solid minutes of no guitar. What...the...heck???? I was kind of frustrated at this, because I didn't know when the guitar would come back, and I was kind of left hanging. But after all of that waiting I finally get back to playing the main riff, and with a solo it ended strong. But damn was it a long wait...So really, it was a good song to listen to. The piano sounded challenging and the bass kept going despite the break. But dang was the guitar lacking! At least in HotSR you played during the slow parts. To wrap it up, what I played was fun, but the waiting was bad. 3/5

Starship Trooper:
This...was....EPIC. To be quite honest I didn't expect it to be fun at all. When I listened to the song, I didn't pick out anything other than the acoustic break that would challenging, or fun. But was I ever wrong! There are lots of hammer ons, and awesome arpeggios for the main riffs and melodic sections. And then the acoustic break....It was very hard...It keeps your fingers scrambling to hit the buttons, with lots of chords, anchored notes, and quick hammer on-to-chord switches....JEEZ. But after that it's back to the main riff. And afterwards, you end with the space jam. Pretty much the same chord progression with a flanger effect. Cool and spacey, but not too interesting tbh. Although you do end with a cool solo, that probably has one of the chokiest endings to a song ever...But overall it was very enjoyable and probably the best song. 5/5

Overall:
Very good pack to listen to. But was it fun on guitar? Yes...and no. The songs are very technical, with cool licks and riffs that are a nice breath of fresh air to play. But the songs are also very long. The shortest song is Owner of a lonely heart, and the rest are 7+ minutes. The longest being 10:56. So really, the guitar can get drawn out sometimes and the waiting with some songs can just be unbearable. If you love Yes as a band, and enjoy their music, I say go for the whole thing. But if you only want a few songs, buy I've seen all good people and Starship Trooper. The pack sounded excellent on keys and bass however.

So I give it a 4.5/5 overall rating.

Pack: Celebrating Soundgarden on Tour 2011       "Review for whole pack Guitar and Bass" Caleb
The first Soundgarden pack is finally released, and some big hits are included here.

Blow Up the Outside World:
(guitar) This song is pretty nice. Slow paced and very grunge-sounding. However in guitar it doesn't translate very well into the game. It's mainly a bunch of slow chords, with some melodic hammer on parts. It has one solo, but it barely redeems the song. 2/5

(bass) Bass was pretty much the same story for guitar, slow and plodding. I don't have much to add, except the outro for bass was surprisingly fun. you have a lot of alternating green and orange hammer ons that go on for the outro. But once again, it's only redeeming feature doesn't do much to boost my rating. 2/5

Burden in my hand:
(guitar) This is a pretty cool guitar chart. Lots of acoustic chord strumming, and some interesting chord changes. There isn't much to chart, but it plays nicely and the song is good. 3/5

(bass) This is the best bass song in the pack. It takes a while to get going, but once it does it gives you a lot of melodic hammer ons and bass chords to keep it interesting. Recommended for bassists! 4/5

Fell on black days:
(guitar) This is a very chill song. The guitar chart is pretty repetitive though. It's got a weird Hammeron chord pattern that changes from the RB chord to the YO chord. It's awkward at first, but you soon get used to it. It has a guitar solo towards the end, with some scales and alt strums. While repetitive, I found it the most fun since it is just a chill song you can just groove to. 4/5

(bass) Bass was pretty boring for the most part. It didn't offer much to entertain, and it just kind of slinked along. 2/5

Outshined:
(guitar) Not a challenging song by any means, but it was just such a cool heavy song with lots of chords and a neat solo. I found it fun to play. 4/5

(bass) Follows the same basic pattern throughout. Similar to the guitar chart minus the chords and solo. 3/5

Rusty Cage:
(guitar) This is one chart you either love or hate. It is definitely the most hard, and most awkward chart there is in this pack. The constant strum/ho/strum/ho pattern, and the note combos provide the challenge in the song. I found it fun after a while, and what started as despising it, turned into a slight enjoyment. I feel it will grow on me. 3/5

(bass) Just a simple strummy song wit a neat rhythm. Nothing special, but surprisingly fun. 3/5

The day I tried to live:
(guitar) Meeh I feel this is the second weakest chart. Just repetitive and uninteresting for the most part. It's just mainly chords and slow hammer on/chord transistions 2/5

(bass) Pretty much the same thing as the guitar chart, minus chords. 2/5

Overall: I enjoyed it on guitar for the most part, the songs are good and the charts are decent. Bass was kind of bland, except for "Burden in my hand". It was a decent pack for plastic guitarists, cool charts to compliment cool songs, if you only play bass though I only recommend "Burden in my hand."

I say buy the pack if you like Soundgarden. If you want one song, buy Rusty Cage for a challenge, or Fell on Black days for a fun chart. I give the pack a 4/5 for guitar, and 2/5 on bass.

Song: Thou Shall Not Fear       "Don't listen to the title of this song...you have a lot to f" Caleb
This is a review for both Guitar and Bass, so this is why it is going in the discussions section.

Okay, the guitar chart for this is no joke. Thou shall not fear is probably one of the toughest RBN charts I have played. it starts with a gallop chord chord pattern, and then soon goes into the solo. The first solo is pretty cool, with some trill lanes that really work for the song, some quick snakes and then the solo is done.

Now comes the madness. Intense strumming, not as fast as Dragonforce strumming, but still insane enough to make it hard to combo. You do the same pattern three times, and then the chorus riff comes in. It's filled with alt-strum chords and chord hopos. Repeat this a few times and then you move on to the bridge....holy cow this is the hard part. It doesn't look hard, but don't let that fool you. Fast alt strums combined with some forced strumming scales, all thrown at you in a super fast way, makes it insanely hard to combo, and really throws you off the first time, in fact it continues to throw me off. Then one more solo with some fast hammer ons and strumming, and you play the intro riff one more time, and the song ends.

The solos are super easy compared to the song's bridge. Bass is pretty much the same as the guitar chart, minus solos and the fast strumming during the first verse. But the bridge is still there, and it is still as insane if not harder than the guitar version.

I recommend this song for shredders with enough endurance and the balls to take it on. While not the hardest chart in the world, it is a very very tough song that is never boring. A good dose of thrash metal for you. Musically, I am not a huge fan. The instruments are very Slayer-esque and the vocals are like Evile, two bands which I don't care for. But it's fun to play when you are in the right mood, and it is only a dollar.

Pack: Lynyrd Skynyrd 01       "Review" Caleb
I'll review the whole pack.

Saturday Night Special was the first, and worst of the pack. Despite the tier 5 rating, suggesting difficulty, I got a chordy, repetitive, and kind of boring song. It's got three solos, but they are not really interesting. Definitely the weakest. 2/5

What's your name was a nice comeback after SNS. It's faster, and it's got a good, satisfying solo. Not much else to say really, other than it's a classic song. 4/5

Now for Sweet Home Alabama. It's the same version from GH4, with a different chart. It was actually, better than I remember. With two solos, and lots of movement, it was a blast to play. The last solo is improved a ton since GH4. I highly suggest this if you are only buying one song from the pack. 5/5

Tuesday's Gone was the best I think. It was fairly slow paced, but it kept it interesting with lots of finger movement, and two rockin' solos. I actually thought it would the worst on guitar, and I was pleasantly surprised. It is very long though, so keep that in mind if you have a short attention span. 5/5

The pack was a fun experience on guitar, the only one I would avoid is Saturday Night Special. The pack also sounds great on Keys, so that's also a good reason to pick it up.

Over all a 4/5 rating.

Keep in mind that I'm on the wii, and custom tattoos aren't available.
