Take A Little Trip, You're In For A Long Haul Karmeleaux
Well, I just said in my Werewolves of London review that it was a unique song in that it repeated a single rhythm throughout but varied the flourishes so much that it redeemed itself.

Turns out, it's not that unique - it's not even the only RB3 disc song to do that.

Low Rider, too, is a single rhythm, a slow scale around the fretboard with a few hammer-ons in there. But each measures alternates the fill back into the next repetition. In addition, there's a number of unique variations in there, some of which involve short but fun HO/PO chains. Towards the end it starts omitting notes to change the feel, and during the trumpet solo the actual rhythm changes slightly.

The verdict ends up being the same as Werewolves of London - despite it being a single rhythm, it's enjoyable, quite so in fact. Almost enough for a four-star to me, but again I feel many people could end up unable to overlook the fact that even with the variations at the end of the rhythms you're playing the same thing half the time.
