No Gypsy Queen starz 007
I was really excited about Black Magic Woman making it over to Rock Band. I loved this song in Guitar Hero 3.

The chart is similar to GH, but the addition of the blue solo sections makes it a little more stressful. The timing is also a little more stringent than the version in GH.

My major complaint is that Gypsy Queen is not included on this track as well. Those familiar with the GH version know that about 2/3 of the way through, the rhythm changes and it becomes a very latin sounding song (with crazy drums). This part is completely omitted from the RB version in favor of an abrupt ending.

Had Gypsy Queen been included, this would have been a 5 star song. Its omission drops the track down, but only to a four because of the awesome solos.

Son, I am Dissapoint. Dead Player
This is a great, catchy classic with a awesome melody, so I was expecting it to be a blast on vocals. Sadly, it falls short for several reasons.

First off, when you think about it, there isn't alot of vocals in the song at all. But of course, the same applies for TTFAF and that was fun to sing, and we have some percussion to keep you bussy while waiting.

But sadly that doesn't stop HMX from charting it rather akward. Yup, another vocals chart that is halfway ruined by the chart, what a shock. During the phrases where he sings "black magic woman", the note to the word "woman" is charted way longer than what is audible, which makes it akward to sing like one would do naturally.

All in all, this is not that great for vocals at all. Just play it on keys and sing along to the song like you would do when listening to it on the radio. I would say that is a more enjoyable experience in this case.
