Punk drums with a killer solo Karmeleaux
As soon as the drums start in this (fairly fast, constant bass), you know it's gonna be a blast if you love punk drums.

And you're not wrong at all (this time (you idiot))! The song is largely a standard fast double-time rhythm on the hi-hat (read: punk feel), but it'll throw in a measure of varied bass patterns every now and then, sometimes switching to a crash for that measure. It also throws in an enjoyable amount of single crashes and snare rolls. Definitely a very fun punk song, I'd probably say four stars for this.

But then the solo comes, and it's a blast. It starts as a long roll on the highest tom, but it quickly involves the rest in in various movements by the end.

Together, these two things make this song is an amazing time if you like punk drums (and maybe even just fun drums). If you don't (communist), check out the solo on YouTube, maybe that'll change your mind (communist).

Just in time for St.Patty's Day! ManInBlackXIII
If you've ever played Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4, you'll recognize this song immediately. It's a catchy little Irish-punk tune that's only $1.

The guitar isn't very varied, with the main riff being a combination of slightly-fast single notes mixed in with a few sections of 3-10 notes of alt-strumming sections. The chorus is just a few single notes and some sustains and some alt-strumming, while the part following the chorus has a 2 note alt-strum "sweep" I'd guess you say across the fretboard.

Personally I would have preferred the studio version, but this live recording's pretty decent and the vocals are pretty tolerable to listen to.

The chart isn't terribly difficult, but it is a bit tricky with the strum pattern. More importantly though, this chart is pretty fun overall thanks to the fact it's not just continuous alt-strumming, and for a buck is most definitely worth the buy.

Bouncy bass with a fair number of scales Karmeleaux
This song is largely built around the kinda country/folk feeling of bouncing between two notes at a moderate speed. But the standard rhythm switches gems more often than most of those we've seen before, and it's got various little fun scales connecting them throughout.

It's also got a few other rhythms in there. There's a straight eighths part where it moves between the frets in in a fairly predictable manner in there a few times, but it's short and fun at this speed, and there's a few HO/POs scattered in there (and all around the chart) for variety.

It's definitely a blast on bass, enriched even moreso that it's at a mostly comfortable upstrum speed. Definitely a song I'll come back to again and again.

Decent movement but annoying strum pattern Karmeleaux
It looks like I'm the minority here, but I'll explain my opinion. I enjoy the song, but the guitar chart is just entirely missable to me.

This song moves around a good deal in its rhythms and alternates between single and double strumming. Both of these things are good things on their own, but the tempo of the song really detracts here.

I find it aggravating switching between the strum patterns at this speed, especially seeing how there's no real lull in the song, so I feel worn down by the end (but not like I'm having fun). And although the rhythms do move around, it's still fairly repetitive throughout. These two issues together make it an unappealing guitar chart to me.

Love the song on drums and bass (as I'll comment in a second), but if this came up as my first song in a random setlist on guitar I would probably quit out.
