One of the Weaker RB3 Charts Gigakoops
The entire song has you alt-strumming eighth notes, which keeps one hand busy at least, but eventually it gets dull, especially when the patterns get repetitive and dull in the latter half.

The song starts with an interesting enough riff, having you switch between lower notes and higher notes one after the next. Then this riff repeats about too many times, then it moves to lanes of notes for you to strum in the chorus, which offers little in movement on the fret hand.

Rinse and repeat a few times, then we finally hit the bridge, which has you strumming down a few lanes before getting back to the verse riff for a few more minutes. Then the latter half hits, and you're found repeating a different riff for the remainder of the song. This riff in question has you switching between some lower and some higher notes on the fret hand and essentially constantly alt-strumming on the other.

If you like to alt-strum, this song is for you. I find it a bit repetitive, and at five minutes in length it gets old after a while.

Great entry-level pro keys chart- for two minutes The Walrus
The pro keys part that you get is very beginner-friendly. The verses have very simple note runs- hit the same note 5 times.

So why on earth am I giving it such a high rating? Because of the chorus. The part you play is engaging enough to keep you from getting bored, yet simple enough to give beginner pro keys players the chance at keeping combo on them.

It helps that the keyboard part is so freaking iconic. Maybe I just suck at pro keys, but there isn't another really basic pro keys song that can match the stupid happy feeling I get when I play this song.

So this song gets 5 stars, on the condition that you use the 2 1/2 minutes after the third verse to go do something productive like get a snack or something.
