Dat Trills Dead Player
Ahh the good old days without trill lanes...

Either way, this song is awesome for several reasons:

1. After 10 seconds of rythm guitar in the intro, the rest of the song is all lead guitar with fun and catchy riffs scattered all over.

2. Dat trill. It have the most hugeass over the top decending trill of all time in the first guitar solo. But you should be able to get enough OD to beat it fairly easly as long as you can flail some and change anchored notes. This provides a good challenge to the godlike player trying to FC this while still making it challenging and interesting to the "half-gods of plastic shred".

3. Two amazing solo's filled with everything from fast decending tripplets and doublets, easy lead riffs, all over the fretboard flailing and some more trills.

4. It is only about 3 minutes long and ends before it becomes boring.

In other words: the only reasons not to get it is if you are a pussy or have a phobia of trills. It's as easy as that.

This song was included in the virtuoso pack way back on GHIII, and I always wanted to get that pack but didn't own an xbox at the time. I figured that now I could make up the lost time and get this song.

I really wasn't missing as much here as I thought I was. It's true, this song does have some wild solo'ing.. Well, it has some wild trills, anyway. But that's about it! The rest of the chart is repetitive and uninteresting. And honestly, the trills weren't much fun either. They're the type of thing that you'll either be able to hit or you'll fail miserably at..

It honestly does feel like there isn't anything else to this chart. When you download this, you better be looking forward to playing those trills.. Otherwise, just leave it alone
