Probably my favourite Legacy Keys chart! Poinkish
Yup, just putting it out there. "Working For The Weekend" held the title previously for best legacy Keys but this easily takes that title now. It's a really varied song on keys. For most of the song you'll be switching up on 2-3 key notes, along with a bunch of held sustained notes that also has you playing notes with your other fingers while holding down the sustain, and a few sections that require you to move up and down the keyboard at a fairly steady pace. All of this flows well, feels great to play and none of it ever feels frustrating or poorly charted.

This is a great example of a fun, busy keys chart that has a low learning curve that even newer players to Expert keys can get into. Definetly the highlight of the week for Keys players I reckon, and the best keys song to date.

non_zero
Practically non-existent for the first 2 minutes, then you get some moderately entertaining chord strumming, then in the last 20 seconds you have the solo from hell.

So, it's not fun for a player of any conceivable skill level.

Simple, but a fun crunchy bass! Poinkish
You'll want to turn the bass boost up for this one. Despite the sheer simplicity and low difficulty of the Bass in this song, it's still a fun time in my opinion. For the most part you'll be playing a plodding slow string of straight forward notes that switch lanes once in a while with an occasional double or triple strum thrown in, there's also a bit of fretboard movement right before the beggining of the choruses kick in. There's just enough variety throughout to bring this above your average low difficulty bass line due to the more jumpy bits around the radio broadcast intermission, and some chordy bits thrown in too.

It's a good example of a simple, yet fun bassline that'll keep you engaged throughout.

Surprise Solo! Bront
The elephant in the room: Devil's Tier? Well, yes and no. I'll explain further on.

The song is a mix of single hits and chords, usually in pretty simple small blocks of 3-5 notes, and a few longer sections. There's a bit of variety in the sections, but there are a lot of pauses too. Overall, it's not bad, but nothing to get too excited over. Then, as the song ends, and you're wondering why this is devil's tier, you hit the OMGWTF solo, much in the same vein as "Feels Like The First Time" (in both difficulty and structure). This solo is a bit longer, so either save up the OD (It's not a short solo, though not extremely long), play on no fail, or be very very good at quick HOPO repeated sweeps. If you're not a top expert guitarist, it's likely one of the first two.

The song is an '80s radio staple, and probably a must have for party folks (I know it's one that gets requested a lot as a "wouldn't this be cool?" song). But as a guitar chart, it's a frustrating combination of mild and wild to make it only moderately desirable. I still say get it, but don't expect loads of fun out of the guitar chart.
