Disgusting chart in a awesome song Dead Player
I think we can all agree that most charts by Harmonix are very good, but even the best of charters can make horrible mistakes. This was one of them.

So the song starts off with the catchy main riff, and here everything seems fine. Then we kick into the powerfull fuzz version of it that we hear during the choruses, but... no chords? What? You can't seriously suggest that we will play the same riff over and over again with no varation when you can get it more variated very easly? But yes, that is one of the biggest problems here.

The verses aren't alot better either, and it quite frankly doesn't make sence at all. Why have strummed green and red notes when we have a wah-wah riff that would have been so much better if it alternated between green and blue with Hammer-ons? Yes, I have charted some customs myself, so I know something about making entertaining charts.

Also, after the second chorus, we get a effect filled riff that sounds very much like the main riff in Testify, but is it charted? NO! We get to play the main riff some more instead! Oh joy. The solo is also strummed all the way trough, and I ask again, why no Hammer-ons!? When a solo is most likely tapped, I think we should be able to tap it ingame to without strumming. The outro is a bit refreshing though, but I think they shortened it a bit from the original, but hey I could be wrong.

All in all, this is one of those songs that most people probably could chart better themselves with a bit of practice in a MIDI editor. When you play the same riff over and over and over again in a 4 minute song, things go dull pretty quickly. Only worth buying if you are a drummer or bassist.

Pros: Well, it have SOME variation atleast.

Cons: Repetive, poorly charted, way to strummy.
