View Full Version : Holy Crap! Snow is impossible

07-14-2008, 02:28 PM
I just downloaded Snow (hey oh) IT'S FUCKING HARD. Harder than Green Grass or any of the Metallica songs. Any one else think this to?

Nah, once you get the motion/rhythm its fine.

i hadn't failed more than once on any song before this so far i've failed 5 times

Am gunna buy this when i've got some MSP.

just watched a video of the guitar part cos i assume that's what you're talking about, and it looks hard but not too bad, i reckon i could do that alright.

it doesn't look hard at all but there are almost no HO/PO so you need to strum every note which make it about 100 times harder

I strum every note to begin with. This is the second song i ever failed on RB guitar. (thrasher)

I was really overwhelmed by this song! Tried 3 times and then just decided to wait and play it later during the day when my volume could be up louder... but pretty sure I can't pass it even then.

Heh, it threw my son, the self-professed Guitar Hero Expert of the family, for a loop too. He always says he can pass "anything on Expert" and that "this game is too easy" but he gave up after 2 tries. It's an intricate pattern that you can't fake ... but it's a damn pretty line. :)

what makes it even harder is that the pattern isnt even a damn solo. You would hope that once the bass and the drums kick in that it would change a little bit but no it doesnt. And then you get to the part right before the chorus and its alternating G Y...are you kidding me! it makes me sad that i have to play the song on hard, its one of two now :(

This just mocks me every time I pass it. If only I was better at this game.

07-14-2008, 10:27 PM
I'm glad I'm not the only one! The farthest I got was 19% on hard. It's even pretty hard on medium. Maybe someday....

07-14-2008, 10:35 PM
I get about 70% and my hand cramps up and i lose the pattern

Just practice it. I failed it the first time too and I'm the self-professed guitar expert out of all my friends too. Now I can 5-star it every time.

07-15-2008, 05:28 AM
i too gave up after a few tries and moved to hard too. i think i'll practice a bit more soon though. it seems like once you get the main part down, it shouldn't be too bad.

I agree with almost all of the posts here, the song is f%&$" hard, I tried like 20 times on Expert, and I can't pass 17-19%, it's so hard, the hardest song in the game definetely

07-17-2008, 06:01 AM
It's a trip, definitely worth buying due to the crazyness of it and the fact that most of your friends will know how to sing it. My left arm wears out and I fail at 25%. And once you get past that crazy fast part, it initially isn't any easier. It's simpler, just an alternation between red and blue, but it's hard after a minute and a half of snow.

07-17-2008, 02:22 PM
Yeah it's a different kind of hard than Metallica. Ride the Lightening's solo is insane but the rest of the song is cake. I think the hardest song is Thrasher!!!!

07-17-2008, 03:45 PM
Snow is definitely much harder than I anticipated. I remember seeing a note chart someone crafted for the game via GH2 and it was largely hammer ons and, for some stupid reason, I sorta thought that's how this chart would be.

I've only tried the song twice, first time I failed at 12%, second at 30%. Haven't had the want to go back yet. ^^

I really want this song now ;D Need some bloody money though
