Excellent, Fairly Demanding Bass Karmeleaux
If there's one thing you should know about Rush, it's that Geddy Lee can cut loose on bass when he's not singing. This song is an instrumental. From there, you should be able to understand why I gave it a five-star.

And once again, it's so hard to really describe a five-star bass in detail. It's got TONS of HO/PO scales, bass chords scattered about, plenty of movement and rhythm changes, and variations within all of those. Oh yeah, it also has a section where it trades soloing with the drums. There is ONE section after the bridge where the bass is focused on sustains, but a break isn't bad when the rest of it is so awesome.

I honestly can't see any bassist not enjoying playing this. Period.

I must refrain from comparing this chart to Guitar Hero II, which was my first foray into music games. The heart of the matter is that there are many interesting parts of play in the middle, a badass solo, and lots of hammer-ons during the (can you call it a verse if there aren't any lyrics?) main part.

If you predominantly play guitar, this is a great song to pick up because it has a good balance between challenging hammer-ons and fun chords. It's also a song that you would not complain about playing on bass.

Well, it's obviously Rush LostWoodZero
This is the best instrumental song and i have to say:

5/5 Guitar: Alex Lifeson was really fast in this song

5/5 Bass: Really demanding and fast

5/5 Drums: Well... It's Neil "Fucking" Peart xD

Awesome, but... se7enc
This drum pattern is SO much fun to listen to, and it varies with each piece of the song.

However, if you're not already stellar on drums, this song will knock you down a peg on expert. It's tiring and will take you several hours in practice mode to pass.

If you are a fan of RB, I highly suggest purchasing this song because the charts for all three instruments are truly great. Kick your singer out for 5 minutes and play this beauty (even if you have to shift down to hard).

If you played this on GHII Mogwai
To be quite honest, I didn't really LOVE this one back on GHII. I mean, I was indifferent towards it actually. But for some reason upon seeing all the great reviews on this, I went ahead and downloaded it.

And.. It feels like nothing super new >.>'. It feels too much like the GHII version, though there are numerous differences. I guess if you really liked the way the first copy played, you might dig this.. Otherwise, probably not.
