Beast And the Harlot isn't bad at all, granted I can play it on actual guitar, is it the fact the solo comes after the first chorus that messes people up or am I the only one that applies music theory to star power reserves

Caught in a Mosh was the only song I wasn't able to 5 Star on Expert Guitar/Bass, so I had sing that one. Luckily there is a lot talky parts in this one. I managed to 5 Star it and got my achievement.

I accidentally voted for Beast and the Harlot.

Surprised no one has mentioned China Grove or Crosstown Traffic, because those are the only two I can't get Expert 5* on no matter what instrument I try. No idea why as China Grove has a relatively low tier rating on most instruments!

I'd have to say Caught In A Mosh. It was the only song that made me resort to 5 starring it on expert vocals. Everything else I could get on guitar or bass. I hate playing Llama more though, I just didn't think it was very fun to play on any instrument. But that's just my opinion.

antibodies was the last song for me i did it on expert vocals, i could likely could have done it with bass if it wasnt for that dragonforce like ending, also they can be done in band mode, i tested this been caught stealing as the only way i five stared it was in band quickplay, though i got a gold star individual performance at the end of the song

Llama, by far, is the biggest arse ache on the list. I managed the 5* on guitar, but the strum pattern was far too awkward for my liking. Drums were far worse. Managed 2*'s

I can't even get 3 stars on that Devo song on pro drums... whereas I can almost get 5 stars on "I can see for miles" o.O

The Jimi Hendrix song on guitar is over-rated by RB3 - it's definitely not as hard as the suggested 5 difficulty: there's a warm-up song that's harder :s

I'm getting that vibe from a lot of the songs on that list. There is no way antibodies in a tier two song on guitar ¬_¬

Llama on expert drums, the only song I can't 5* on expert drums.
I hate the song though so it's not making me want to practice for hours.
I have been getting better at songs that have a similar (although slower) kind of pattern though, so I'm hoping I'll be able to get soon even if I have to practice a little bit.

I ended up getting this tonight. My last 2 songs were Llama, and antibodies.

I tried llama tonight on harmonies with 2 mics, and got it first try. (and I can't sing really.. medium maybe)

Every other song I don't remember having problems with, all were done using a guitar, either guitar bass and I think one on keys.

Antibodies was defiantly the hardest for me...but I love the song so I played it on expert BASS for one of my last songs tonight and finally 5 starred it

Always up for playing some RB3. Just send me an invite/message/FR. Mention x360a in the message.

I play almost daily.

Actually "King George" is the song that's giving me the most trouble, and have made me ragequit twice now. I've gotten a few millimeters from 5* on guitar, but then I just start messing up again. I know it's probably supposed to be easy on bass for most ppl, but that kind of strumming is one of my biggest weaknesses, I just cant keep enough of a streak.

The last song I 5-starred was Antibodies on Expert guitar. It took me 8 tries and still got 4.5 stars. Then I turned on Hyper mode or whatever and got 5 stars on my first try.

I can't do Good vibrations on expert on bass or vocals which are my usual expert instruments.
Some of the most difficult rated songs i thought were pretty easy on vocals - such as Llama and Beast and the harlot which were no trouble.

Honestly, as a vocalist (I suck at the other instruments and currently have a broken hand so I wouldn't be able to play them anyway), I've had more trouble with this Rock Band than any of the others. And it's not even the difficulty songs.

I have a couple songs left to five star on expert. You want to know what they are?

Filter - Hey Man Nice Shot (cannot for the life of me get this down)
The Doobie Brothers - China Grove (I fail gloriously at this song)
Jimi Hendrix - Crosstown Traffic
At the Drive-In - One Armed Scissor (this is just an awful, awful pain in the ass song)

I've five starred Good Vibrations, Beast and the Harlot, Bohemian Rhapsody, Llama. My friends marvel at my ability to nail songs with red devil heads but fail at songs with two or three star difficulty. I just can't do them at all, so for me those are the most annoying and difficult songs to five star.

The verse on Caught In a Mosh is somewhat weird to hit. Beast in the Harlot is simple (for me, at least) since it's pretty much an easy rhythm through out the song on guitar and bass.

Between by friend being a expert guitarist and my a humble expert hummer-ist (vocals) we can't get Beast and the Harlot. Any song I can't 5 Star on vocals he can get on guitar and vice-versa, but Guitar/Bass is a BEAST for him and my score on vocals gets nutkicked because I keep running out of breath.

Caught in a Mosh and Llama both are pretty difficult.
Don't misjudge people, base on their appearance. That'll be your downfall.
