Hey thanks a lot for the tips on GH:WT and moving up to hard and expert. Sorry it took so long to reply. I didn't even see these messages in my profile until just now. Anyways, I'm a big fan of Rock Band and music rhythm games. I've just never moved up to hard and I've been playing since GH2 came out. I can mostly 100% all medium. I definitely will try your tips out as I think that will be much easier. I just need to practice at it. Thanks again.
I just saw your post in the GH:WT achievements discussion thread. I wanted to share something with you that might help you finally get good at Hard and into Expert. Your problem is that you're trying to hit the orange frets with your pinky. You're not meant to do it that way, as it's (as you pointed out) ridiculously difficult for anyone without freaky alien fingers. It's far easier to retrain yourself to make the yellow fret a neutral middle for your middle finger (that's why it has the raised line, so you can feel the neutral point without ever looking) and instead of reaching for orange with your pinky, you rest your pinky on orange at all times and reach for green with your index finger instead. It's WAY WAY easier to reach up to green with your pointer. When I discovered this, and retrained my brain over the course of a few days, I immediately jumped in skill and now play expert with relative ease. Good luck.
