I didn't expect much but in between the slightly dull verses there's a really cool beat with some interesting snare fills.

The ending can easily ruin an FC though, it's one of those cymbal roll lanes that I'm never quite sure when to start or stop.

Harmonix didn't go shy on this. Making sure you play Lead Guitar rather than the Rhythm Guitars Chords. The intro is comprised of Chord Holding and Arpeggiations which aren't anything too difficult if you can do Complex Chords.
Apart from the trill-like outro. There really isn't much too it.

Worth it if you like this song, or some strange chord changes, otherwise don't bother.

1/5 - If you focus on this instrument, you should not buy this song.
2/5 - Fans of the song/band should be wary if they focus on this instrument.
3/5 - Alright on this instrument, buy it if you're a fan.
4/5 - Fans of this instrument could benefit from checking out this song.
5/5 - If you focus on this instrument, you should buy this song.

But boy could he play guitar Dead Player
This is a true classic, and even though the original version featured in RB don't have a guitar solo, it is still alot of fun.

The main riff is filled with easy but enjoyable chains of Ho/Po's, the verses switches between lead guitar and aucoustic and the choruses have some easy chords to rack up points.

The outro got a rather annoyingly charted line of decending tripplets though that will break your combo and that is not fun to play at all. I mean really? Orange to Red to Green? Was that necesary when you could have charted it Yellow and downwards to be more enjoyable?

Still a cool song though. If you like the song it should be a instant buy anyways.
