A diverse and challenging Cheap Trick song Marwood87
Likes: Lots of variety, a good challenge, good replay value, very fun to play along with

Dislikes: none

Ok, so I really didn't expect this much fun on a Cheap Trick song. After playing "Surrender" and "Dream Police", I assumed that "I Want You..." would be the same thing (ie chord fest with a few ho/pos). Boy, was I wrong.
This song features a huge amount of variety. Rick Nielsen really gives it his all and throws everything at you. Among the slew of alt. chord strumming, power chords, and chord ho/pos are some fast and tricky ho/pos which are bound to mess up an FC but if you can hit them, they are extremely satisfying. The solos are a notable challenge (with some tricky alt strumming sections) but overall they're not too difficult.
I also had fun playing along with the tune. After Robin sings "Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you cryin'?" you can hear the audience respond with "CRYIN' CRYIN' CRYIN'". I don't know why but I really enjoyed that and the audience participation made the track even more fun to play along to.
This an excellent guitar track that will keep you on your toes and keep you entertained. The variety and the challenge of the chart gives it good replay value. Highly recommended for guitarists; Cheap Trick fans will obviously enjoy this one.

Well at least the first 3 seconds were fun... Vampire-Jekyll
To put it simply, you play a nice little snare intro followed by the most mediocre drum pattern to hit rock band yet. For the majority of the song you'll be alternating between snare/hi hat and hi hat/kick. Maybe every once in awhile they give you another note to play but it rarely occurs, which is odd considering how lively the song is.

Don't get me wrong, it is a great song but if you're getting this just for the drums, you'd be better off saving your money.

This song doesn't need to put on a new shirt for me. Person-Man
Cheap trick is never bad people, and this song proves that by 100 more times.

The song has a higher tone, not super high just a little up there. It is very smooth, and simple tho. The only part that actually gets me is the "Come home early from work" part, a little harder for m to hit because of how fast it was going.

The chorus is so fun, it take a gradual climb with each "Didn't I" getting to a higher tone. This part of the song is a little harder to hit also, but still doable.

All in all this song is great for a full band. Its perfect for hard core players, or parties. its a win for everyone!

I give this song a 5/5 for being great.
