Best bass chart of the pack! Poinkish
While "Never Gonna Give You Up" is sparse, and pretty uninteresting for the most part on Guitar, bass is a different matter completely. Throughout the song you'll be jumping up and down on the fretboard with plenty of hammer-ons coming thick and fast, it's am extremely fun and consistent bassline, and it's kind of the "Take On Me" of the year so far. Sparse on Guitar, but really frickin' good on Bass. This is the song I'd reccomend to bassists if you can only get one song this week, get this!

One of the Worst Guitar Parts in a while! Poinkish
Love the song itself, but it really doesn't hold up well on Guitar at all. There's a lot of blank spots, with small bursts of chords and single notes every once in a while, usually only a handful each time. The only remotely interesting and fun part is halfway through the song, which has you moving around the fretboard fairly quick with some snaking hammer-ons with chords thrown in between. This is pretty fun, but sadly only lasts for about 20 seconds or so. This is the only thing saving it from a 1 star rating in my opinion. Then it's back to the same old sparse charting that you've been playing for the majority of the song.

This is the complete opposite compared to the bass chart, which is one of the more fun charts I've played in a while. If you're a dedicated Guitarist and can only afford a few songs out of this pack, give this a miss, unless you really like the song.

Fun keys, and a great Guitar chart, wait what?! Poinkish
Gotta admit, the keys were a lot more fun than I thought they were gonna be the main hook of this song has your fingers descending down the keys from orange to to green and then to a 2 note key chord, after that a bunch of fun key sustains that switch up often appear, and a few shorts bursts of key chords thrown in between. It comes together to form a pretty enjoyable, and varied keys chart!.

But wait, that's not all, it also doubles as a good guitar chart! Way better than the actual guitar chart itself. So if you're a guitarist and want to play this on your plastic axe, and don't have a keyboardist around, then select the keys chart, you won't regret it!

The song is pretty repetitive on drums, with this annoying drum-machine-esque beat for most of the song, but on the bright side, you get to play that amazing drum intro that everybody knows to hear when they get Rickrolled! You also play similar rolls like that throughout the song, so it's not a total loss.

Long story short DoofiestDoofz
It's pretty annoying for drummers. If you want to actually challenge yourself playing this, do what I did, and aim for an FC with only using one hand. It has been done, but in all honesty, I still hate playing this if it's not on bass or vox.
