I recently bought a new drum set and got back in Rock Band again. I'm playing Rock Band 2. Started on Easy, then did Medium without any trouble at all. I'm finally about where I was at when i used to play, which is 5 Starring most of Hard, 5 starring some of Expert, but still being able to pass most on Expert except for the really hard songs. Anyway, 2 songs gave me trouble on Hard so far. I'm going through the Challenge marathon order, so since they are ranked on difficulty by full band, some of them are way out of order for just drums.

Anyway, I just finished the Nightmare Marathon Part 2 on Hard. Man, the difficulty ramped up fast. The two songs I couldn't 5 star were Rob the Prez-odent and Ace of Spades '08. I got really close on RtP, like a few notes away, so I should be able to do it after a few tries. However, AoS I only got about 4 and a half stars. That song is INSANE. The rhythm is way too fast for me to be able to hit that alternating on and off beat kick consistently. The kicks in this song are brutal. If the kicks weren't there, it would be easy, but those kicks throw me off.

Any tips? I've been 98-99% pretty much every song until now.

Ok, I just finished Hard (well, sort of). I 5 Starred almost everything. Here's my status.

4 Stars
Rob The Prez-O-Dent
Ace of Spades '08
Shoulder to the Plow

3 Stars
Visions

Failed
Panic Attack


Everything else I 5 Starred. I cannot believe I pulled out a 5 Star on Battery and Painkiller, but I did. Any tips for these songs above would be greatly appreciated.

Practice, and more practice.

Stay on hard for as long as you need. I still remember when i made the jump from hard to expert; It's a pretty huge jump.

Play Painkiller on hard to get used to those fast double kicks, Let There be Rock Ace of Spades, etc to get fast.

Start playing Warmup tier songs on expert.
