I've been mostly a GH player so I've put off making this thread for a while but it looks like I'm going to be playing RB for a while... so here it is. I'll update the OP with more of my stats another time. For now I'll just mention a couple of my better RB accomplishments.

TB:RB guitar and bass FGFC

I've been working on getting the Beatles Full Artist FC done on guitar (bass is already done) I only have the Abbey Road Medley left but after way too many chokes I've decided to take a break from it.

Here's my two most recent Beatles FC's:
She's Leaving Home - Intro doublets and the trills.
Within You Without You - IMO Break 2 in this song is the hardest section in any Beatles song. WARNING: Youtube wouldn't accept these videos so I put them on DailyMotion and DailyMotion sucks.

After I moved on from the Medley I put in the Rock Band 1 disc for the first time in 5 years to see what new FC's I was capable of. I was able to get 18 new ones to bump me up to 44/58. They were, Should I Stay or Should I Go, Wave of Mutilation, Seven, 29 Fingers, Detroit Rock City, Electric Version, Gimme Shelter, Nightmare, Black Hole Sun, I Get By, Epic, Outside, Wanted Dead or Alive, Ballroom Blitz, Dead on Arrival, Can't Let Go, Cherub Rock, and Welcome Home.

The real reason I played RB1, however, was to attempt to finish the bass FGFC. I already had FC'd everything but RttH and GGaHT on-disc in 2011 and I FC'd all of the imports - including GGaHT - in RB3 in '13 or '14. Turns out Run to the Hills is a lot easier than I thought. It only took me about 10 minutes. Thus closed out my Rock Band 1 bass FGFC.

After that I figured I might as well stay in the same engine, so I started working on bass in the AC/DC Track Pack. I worked on FTATR first just so I could get the "hardest" song out of the way first. After that I just started at Thunderstruck and worked my way down until I had the FGFC.

I took videos of the 4 hardest bass FC's in the pack.
Hells Bells (Live) - Has a weird outro but I don't think I've ever missed it.
Whole Lotta Rosie (Live) - Much harder than Hells Bells but still not too bad.
Let There Be Rock (Live) - There is a very clear jump in difficulty between WLR and LTBR. I'm honestly not sure this isn't harder than FTATR.
For Those About To Rock (We Salute You) (Live) - That outro.

This was done all on the AC/DC Track Pack disc. I'm not positive about this but this might be the first on-disc bass FGFC. Every other FGFC on Scorehero's RB1 and RB2 leaderboards were done as imports. Here's my Proof vid that it was done entirely on the AC/DC disc.

Anyway, that's all for now. I might try my hand at the Abbey Road Medley again next... or shoot for a Lego FGFC or work on RB2 or RB3. I dunno. I'm sure I'll be bouncing around all over the place.

Now this is probably gonna be glossed over but this is actually really, really good for someone just starting out a RB thread. RB1's engine is not something I can really come back to, and here you are with your (mostly) FGFC on that engine. And then there's all that AC/DC stuff to boot. Hot dayum.

Great start greenbay! AC/DC is an amazing FGFC considering the songs are so boring and long and LTBR(Live) has the part like halfway through where you really have to focus. And that song is also on RB2! Luckily its the shorter Bon Scott version, but still.

Good job! Great way to open a thread. I need to get around to FCing RttH myself.

Unfortunately you're likely the second to FC AC/DC XBass on disc, as I did so a year or two ago (on the PS2, no less), but that's still a really great feat given RB1's engine. Least you don't have to come back to it again, right?
