Simple, but enjoyable. Poinkish
Any enjoyment I get out of the bass part for "The End Of Heartache" isn't because it's particularly challenging or difficult, but it's because of it's synchronicity with the Guitar. There's a fair bit of bouncy alt-strumming to be done here, that syncs almost identically in rhythm with the Guitar chart.

It switches up a fair bit, moving from lane to lane throughout, with some slight changes such as mid-strumming lane switches, and a bit of hammer-on sliding back and forth across the fretboard, there's also some slower paced strumming and a few chords thrown in too!

As I said it's not a particularly tough chart, but it's satisfying to play, and I'm a sucker for in synch Guitar and bass!

DAT TRILLS AND 3 NOTE CHORDS! Poinkish
"End Of Heartache" is probably gonna be the song that will divide most RB players when asked what they thought of the Guitar for this song this week. You're probably going to fall into one of two camps with this song. Those of you who can hit the trills during the heavy riff, and those of you who can't. But I'll go into further detail about that later.

"The End Of Heartache starts off easily enough, throwing a series of easily hit strummed single notes that'll have your fingers moving back and forth between orange, blue, yellow and red, this continues on for roughly a minute or so before the hardest part comes in.

A series of steadily strummed Green/Red note chords, with some incredibly tight trills in between that switch up from one end of the fretboard to the other in between. As I said before, you're either going to love this or hate it. For a lot of peeps this could be an easy streak breaker. Your ability to hit this part or not will most likely affect your overall enjoyment of this song.

After that, clean vocals kick in and you get to wind down with a series of steadily strummed 3 note chords that switch up every once in a while. These two parts will repeat a couple of times throughout the song, so you'll get plenty of time to get familiar with them.

Then comes my favourite part, a pretty kick-ass solo that has you anchoring down the green fret while allowing your fingers to skip between all the other frets in two really long hammer-on snakes. It's a blast to play. The trills, and the chordy sections mentioned before repeat one more time before throwing something new at you.

There's this pretty cool intermission that has you playing some interesting hammer-on patterns, followed by steady chord gallops, it's great fun, and a nice break from the usual pattern.

Then after that it's a nice ambient section that has you switching between single notes and two note chords before repeating the three note chord section again.

Overall, a fun chart with a fair bit of variety, but those of you who don't like trills ought to check out a chart preview video first, just sayin'!

Too dull on pro drums pzych0
It's a great song no doubt, but it's way to dull on pro drums, it's way funnier with actual double pedal.
But I guess you could say that about all songs then.
Oh well just my opinion.
