I just starting playing the first one, and like it so far. I've gotten thru easy and medium, but I am staying on medium level for now until I get some improvements on some of my 3 star performances. Had trouble with Bark at the Moon, but survived with some star power help. I'm having trouble learning HO/PO also, so haven't been using them in songs.

Anyway, I'm sure others on here play. How's everyone doing in it? Most of you are probably onto newer version. Any tips/tricks other than practice? I hear HO/PO are easier in later versions. Other than that are all the versions basically the same, other than having different songs to play?

The tip of my ring finger has been extra sensitive for the past couple of days. I couldn't figure out why, until I played last night and realized the button that finger presses on the guitar has that little part that sticks out so you can tell where your fingers are without looking. It must be from pressing that so many times.

My (ahem) "kids" are getting a Wii for Christmas. I've got the controllers, add-ons, and a few games for it including GH3. Haven't tried out GH3 yet on it, but it should be good. I like GH and GH2, although I only get to play at video game stores and at Walmart displays.

NOTE: For those people who are looking at Rock Band for their systems, every one that I've tried has an issue with the guitar not being able to strum down after a few days of abuse in the stores. I am sure that there are discussions online about it, as it is way to common to not be an issue, but I thought I would mention it. You can buy the game seperate from the guitar, drums, and mic, and I would say go that route. Use a GH guitar, and you can pick up the other band pieces seperately in February. I would bet that we will get R.B. for the Wii when it comes out next year, but I plan on using the GH3 guitars for with it.

EDIT: There is a quick fix for the Rock Band guitar. Just needs two screws inside tightened up. They were never tightened at the factory. You Tube video ==> Fix your Rock Band guitar.

Cool, Nick, thanks.

Jason, I'm not sure if it is JUST a supply and demand thing or not. I heard somewhere that Activision pulled it shortly after release due to sound problems (output in mono or maybe stereo instead of the advertised surround).

At any rate, unless there is a miracle shipment over the next couple weeks, I'm not going to be as popular as I might have been.

Also, the Rock Band guitars are being repaired by the manufacturer, so you may not have to fix it yourself.

Tom,
My local target was all out 2 weeks ago so i went to Gamestop and they had plenty. Not sure what your options are but worth a check if you have a Gamestop. Me and my daughter have completed easy (solo & Co-op)and are working on medium.

I picked mine up at GameStop as well If you don't see it on the shelf, ASK... They had one on the shelf when I was there, but had at LEAST 8 more in the back. They kept bringing out 2 at a time while I was playing Super Mario Galaxy. I was there for about 25 minutes, and they sold one to me, plus 7 of the others that they brought out. They just didn't have shelf space to hold a lot of guitars for all of the different systems.
