This is a good keys chart....FOR ME TO POOP ON! Poinkish
Yeah, just by looking at the Tier 0 rating for this song you know there isn't much in store for keys players when it comes to "Starting Over". This weeks only keys song is extremely bare-bones, so bare in fact that it's emaciated, appealing to the wide demographic of....Absolutely nobody!

You get to do absolutely nothing for almost THREE minutes of the songs running time, but suddenly you see something come down at you from the top of the note lane, your eyes light up in anticipation of something that hopefully makes the long wait worthwhile, and what do you get?

Three key sustains....very slow, very boring three note sustains, you don't even get enough notes to hit a 4x multiplayer, and just like that, end of song, hope you enjoyed your minimal contribution to the song!

One of the worst keys songs in Rock Band. Avoid!

A fun strumfest! Poinkish
Much like the Guitar chart for "Starting Over", the bass part focuses heavily on giving you a consistent part to play throughout.

It won't tax most bass players, throwing down mostly steadily strummed lanes of notes at you, but it does have a bunch of fun little deviations from the main riff to keep you on your feet, some of these being steady gallops, some very rapid alt-strumming halfway through, and a fair bit of movement up and down the fretboard that vary between strumming and hammer-ons.

"Starting Over" is a solid song for bassists, and I wouldn't have a problem recommending it to anyone who plays bass.

Best Guitar song of the week! Poinkish
The newest KSE song to come to Rock Band's DLC library is easily the best song in the pack for guitarists in my opinion.

The song kicks off with a fairly long series of three note chords that come down at you fairly quickly, it's a nice little warmup, and it gives you a taste of the fairly fast pacing of the rest of the song.

After that, you get to play a few slow single notes and sustain notes before jumping into the meat of the song.

A lot of briskly strummed notes will suddenly come down at you, varying between steady gallops, and a lot of strumming up and down the fretboard as notes zig-zag back and forth. This parts great fun as it straddles that line between fun and challenging, it never feels frustrating or tiresome to play in my opinion. The definite highlight of "Starting Over" and it pops up multiple times throughout the song!

To finish the song off, you'll play a few steadily strummed lanes of notes followed by a red sustained note to top it all off. Great song, and my personal recommendation for Guitarists this week.
