"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'!
