Thanks for stopping by my thread! A bit about me: I started playing rhythm/music games around the release of Guitar Hero 2. When Rock Band was released, drums became my new passion, and with RB3, the pro instruments. I have a little experience with the (real) guitar, mostly self-taught, and even less with the piano. The satisfaction I get from improving my abilities with the pro instruments is one of the reasons I keep coming back to Rock Band.

My ultimate rhythm gaming goal has been to complete every career goal in Rock Band 3, thus obtaining the highest possible number of fans. This super-goal is now complete!
TL;DR: ALL ROCK BAND 3 CAREER GOALS COMPLETE!!! post

Also, an interview with Harmonix!

5* Hard Pro Bass is a pretty good accomplishment. Way to go.

Thanks, guys!

xGaberadex: For sure, if I happen to do anything cool outside of the RB3 goal stuff, I'll put it here. Sometimes I need a break from grinding towards the on-disc goals, so I'll occasionally go for other stuff for fun. For instance, I've been going for the Jerry Pro Bass GS/FC on and off, so maybe that will happen sometime. I've hit everything in the song at various points; now it's just a matter of getting more consistent and hitting it all in one run.

blingdomepiece: I think Free Bird was the most annoying/difficult out of the whole setlist, at least on Hard. It reminded me of Antibodies on (5-lane) guitar, in that the basic pattern doesn't seem so bad. But just when you're feeling like you've got the hang of it, they throw weird variations at you, which inevitably break your combo. Doesn't help that the song is soooo long and repetitive (at least on bass), which makes playing it over and over that much more intolerable.

Also, an update... 5-starred 5 more songs on XPG:

- Fly Like an Eagle
- Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before
- Sister Christian
- Werewolves of London
- I Need to Know

I've found that keeping combo during tricky chord shift sections can become much easier if you figure out ways to "cheat" the chord shape. I haven't quite figured out all the rules for what works and what doesn't, but it usually seems to let you fret one of the strings wrong and still give it to you. Maybe there are "base" notes in the chord that the game thinks are more important to hit than others?

Not much progress on the Pro stuff, but chipping away at TMF to finish it off. I'll probably take a break from Expert for a bit and work on the Hard 5* goals for PG and PK. The triple awesomes will fall as soon as I can organize a harmonies session with a couple of friends. All that should put me at around 1.9 billion fans, leaving only the Expert Pro 5* ones.

- Every Triple Awesome (+1): Yoshimi
- Other: Paparazzi - XPK FC (Might be fun to go for some Vox/Pro Keys FCs on Gaga songs for fun. I'm sure I could do at least this one.)

For the later tiers especially, Hard Pro is a lot easier than Expert Pro.

Hopefully the Hard charts for the last five PK songs are a lot more merciful than the Expert charts.

Whitt333: Thanks! I'm working on it!

One more update (it's been a productive weekend!):

- Hard Pro Keys 5* (+3, COMPLETE!): Free Bird, Llama, Roundabout

Llama and (especially) Roundabout took a lot of work in practice, but Hard difficulty is now done for good! Roundabout was the most technically difficult (harder on Hard than most songs on Expert), but Free Bird was the most tiring. Reminded me of SNAFF. Fast chord-heavy songs really tire my hands out -- probably because my technique isn't very good. I feel like someone who types on a (computer) keyboard with only their index fingers sometimes when I play keys.
