Guitar Of The Week! Poinkish
Gotta say, for a tier 3 this really did catch me by surprise! "My Body" focuses on a bouncy beat, and plenty of alt-strumming, focusing heavily on switching between single notes and 2/3 note chords.

You'll mainly be playing 2 parts. The aforementioned bouncy part that has your fingers quickly switching between 2 and 3 note chords playing 2 notes at a time with small gaps in between. The second part has you alt-strumming single notes, before gradually advancing into alt-strummed chords as the section goes on.

Both these parts are simple, but fun to play, and they act as a good wind down from the hardest, but most fun part of the song.

There's a section about halfway through that plays out with alt-strumming to start with, before throwing a long chain of hammer-ons that have your fingers moving back and forth in a zig-zagging motion, the gap between these notes getting bigger before stretching all the way to "G/B" and "G/O". This parts great, and it's a great break from the more predictable parts of the song.

Overall, this is a surprisingly good Guitar chart, and a catchy tune. I'd recommend this easily.

Simple, but good fun! Poinkish
Much like the Guitar part, "My Body" has a bass chart that also concentrates on alt-strumming, and a bouncy beat, but the main difference, as with most basslines is that there's a lot more gaps in between the alt-strumming only requiring you to strum a few notes at a time, instead of a long string. It's a mostly simple bass chart, but it flows quite well, and there's a bunch of really subtly placed hammer-ons that help you get into the groove a bit easier.

It's engaging throughout, and one of the more enjoyable lower tier basslines I've played lately.
