I was playing with this today. It's fantastic. The Guitar action didn't seem as sharp as Guitar Hero and you have to really have hit the drums hard, but it was a great game and a good laugh.

The track listing is far superior to Guitar Hero, mind.

My appreciation for Rock Band just dropped. It's that gosh darn guitar.

When I play notes they always seem to miss. I end up finding out I cannot hold the strum bar for even a second. I have to flick the gosh darn thing and I end up hurting my fingers. I like GHs guitars better because they give a nice easy click and you don't have to release the strum.

I understand that if I were to play a guitar in real life you don't hold the strings when strumming or else it's mute but I don't have the dexterity to do that.

That's weird, cause I can hold it on mine.  Perhaps an option is set on yours?  Or you're doing something wrong?  Or it's broken?  Who knows.

I have no idea. I've looked through any of the settings and saw no such option. :(

I think I'll wait until I'm not being charged 100 extra just for living in a non-american country
What have you got against intellectual midgets? They're quite smart little guys as far as i can tell.

I'm having a few friends round in a week or so and would love to play this game with them but the UK price tag is rediculous. I'm trying to find somewhere that rents out the band in box set so I can have it for a night or two.

The Pixies' Doolittle album is coming out next week for $19. I'm super stoked for this one.
I need a new tag.
