Clement,
Lol. I know what you mean. Thing is playing the real thing is way different than playing it in rock band. I actually consider rock band to require more muscle memory than the real thing as a matter of fact. with a real guitar, keyboard, etc, you can improvise, and you can figure out the songs by ear and go with your instinct most times. in rock band there's no obvious way for you to know ok this is green red etc. you have to apply a bit of logic to things. as I said before, think of it from a charter's point of view. if you were charting a song, how would you go about doing so? think of the buttons you're pressing and ask yourself, is this button placement logical? can you move around the fretboard with no awkwardness? as for the logic part. let's say you play an E chord assigned to buttons green and yellow . if the next chord is higher than the first, would you press Green and red? obviously you wouldn't since red is lower on the fretboard. however, would you press red and blue? blue and orange? or what if it was red, blue and orange all at once? that all depends on subsequent chords or notes played after the second chord. for 3 buttons inputs, usually it depends on how full the chord is. if the guitarist intended the chord to be played in an arpeggiated method, it usually is a good indication that you have a 3 button chord there. then of course there are the rules. you can never have 4 or 5 buttons chords. to my knowledge, you cannot have green, yellow and orange chords. you cannot have green and orange chords either. at least I don't recall finding any. if you want more info on this you can check the Rock Band network documentation. it's a fun read and you'll quickly find out how strict Harmonix is with their charting. Hope this taught you guys something !

I can help out with drums as well as vocals. I'l give you the guitar and bass since rock band guitar and bass is a nightmare for me... on expert depending on the song. Yet, I can play the real thing and play the same tough songs with no difficulty whatsoever. lol. I guess muscle memory and old habbits die hard.

Ok first things first. a requirement to start learning to play rock band is to own rock band. if you don't have a ps3/360/wii, don't have rock band, and aren't willing to seriously learn to play rock band, don't bother responding. this is for those of you that want to get better, or learn to play guitar, bass, vocals, and drums. I'm going to try and teach you guys to play on expert, since we all know expert is such fun. right? riiiiiiiight? ok good. Now I'll mostly concentrate on guitar, bass and vocals. If there are any good RB drummers out there, I know Clement plays drums regularly, then you can perhaps tackle drums. I suck at drums, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. lol. However when it comes to guitar and bass, I pretty much have it all figured out. it isn't just a matter of learning notes and chords either. you need to think of this from a charter's point of view, and I'm going to try and teach you how to do this. also if you can play a real instrument, or have some experience with music in general it'll help tremendously. I'm willing to work with you guys individually, or in groups, via skype, or similar program. communicating in real-time is a must for this as I need to hear what you are doing in the game. If you guys are interested, feel free to contact me privately or respond on here with your details, and I'll keep in touch.
