|February is off to a great start with DLC coming from Coldplay and Portugal. The Man this week!
New DLC from Coldplay comes to Rock Band this week, the first representation off their sixth studio album, Ghost Stories. "A Sky Full Of Stars" is one of the band's most popular tracks, becoming their first Top 10 single on the Billboard Hot 100 since "Viva La Vida" topped the chart in 2008. In 2015, the song earned a nomination at the 57th Grammy Awards for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. When playing the song in Rock Band, you'll find the guitar chart bouncing between the acoustic strumming and the piano riff. The drums are more consistent, nearly always playing rapid hi-hat, make sure you're warmed up before tackling it. While not too hard to sing, Chris Martin does swing high a few times, so try not to get caught off-guard.
"Live In The Moment" also appears this week, our second DLC track from Portugal. The Man. A Top 10 hit on the Billboard Rock Airplay chart, the latest single from Woodstock supports the strong and steady performance of the album. Guitar has a ton of variety partially due to bouncing around between different instruments, along with changing which guitar you play. For percussion, there's a fun deviation from typical structure where the verse drums are tom-heavy, taking you away from standard hi-hat patterns. Vocals have a consistent range throughout the song, which should help you lock it down in practice.
