OH, I sure hope there's guitar. Not because I'm a guitar hog (though I am), but because I can't imagine what kind of bitching will happen on the Rock Band forums.

People complained on the RB forums about a small portion of "Ring Of Fire" being charted to horns so I'd love to see what the same people would do when almost a whole pack comes out consisting of charting on different instruments.

Actually, hold on, one of the songs that has a Pro upgrade on Guitar has no guitar in it...whut?

I Wish is going to be interesting, because according to Wikipedia that doesn't have guitar (and I sure as hell don't hear any), Sir Duke clearly has a guitar track. You can hear it if you listen closely.

It'll be fine as long as there aren't usable guitar parts. Yeah, the horns in Ring of Fire were an important part of the song, but if you have to interrupt an instrument to make them playable do it on one where it would make some sense.

This was actually one of the few instances I was glad HMX did it to be honest, even if they didn't need to. The GH5 chart of Ring Of Fire was repetitive and boring as hell, it added something else to do at least.

I'm a fan of alt-charting as long as it adds something to a song that would otherwise be repetitive.

RB's Ring of Fire is just as boring as GH5, in addition to being sillier.

Unless GH5 didn't have those occasional HO/PO chains... I don't recall.

It does, but for the most part you're playing that same G,B,Y,B,G,B,R,B pattern for the majority of the song with no breaks in pattern apart from those occasional HOPO parts.

Looking forward to trying the trumpet parts in the Wonder songs.

There's definitely guitar in the Stevie upgrade. I can't imagine a scenario where they would skip out on Landslide pro guitar yet add pro upgrades for bass only

Sir Duke has Guitar for sure. But "I Wish" is credited with not having a Guitar in it at all.

"I Wish" (Wonder) – 4:12

Nathan Watts—bass
Hank Redd—alto saxophone
Raymond Maldonado—trumpet
Trevor Laurence—tenor saxophone
Steve Madaio—trumpet
Stevie Wonder—vocals, Fender Rhodes, ARP 2600 Synthesizer, Drums


Fender Rhodes is a concert piano so it's definetly not a Guitar. A remixed version for Rock Band perhaps?

Did anyone else notice that the song-list post didn't have the traditional message about available instruments? It only indicates keys on every song. Even past weeks like the Coldplay pack had the full message, where the main focus was just vocals and keys.

Wow, crazy coincidence. I'm eating dinner and suddenly Higher Ground by Stevie Wonder comes on the radio, followed by Chasing Pavements by Adèle. It's this thread all over again.

Is this Adele person the one who SNL were making fun of in the crying office workers bit Saturday?

Never heard of this person or any of her music, but if a bit about her music making everyone cry that hears it.... that's funny!

Not sure her stuff would be RB suitable.... not sure I wanna cry while playing! haha



On topic.... Can't wait for tmrw! Welcome to the catalog Mr. Wonder!

In fact there isn't a single instrument tiered lower than 3 all week

>mfw Tell bassist search A-Z in Rock Band Music Store section, he goes in game

>mfw Singer is too important to show up on time even though he was on earlier

>mfw No drummer, guy from New Zealand, I'm going to rage

Note to Guitar purists, don't get "I Wish", it's without a doubt one of the most painful, and annoying guitar charts out for the game to date. It's an impossible tier, but for all the wrong reasons.

Only songs I could recommend are Higher Ground and Sir Duke.
The guitar chart for I Wish is very similar to Snow (Hey Oh). Both are not fun, at all.
Overall: Fucking abysmal on guitar.
Pack: 2/5
