What is better, Rock Band of Guitar Hero?


Also, I think I want to learn to play guitar. I wish I chose that over drums in 4th Grade.

Rock band, IMO. I am not a nut who plays all the time though. just a casual pick it up for an hour at a party type of guy. Then again I love the drums so, that probably doesn't mean a thing to you. I think the music for Rock Band is better.

Rock Band is way better plus whenever you have some extra money if you want to add songs Rock Band has way more songs to purchase than guitar hero.

Also I used to play guitar and drums and to me I like the guitar better if you like to play your favorite songs but drums are easier to play your own stuff on. I suck now though because I haven't played in about four years but I am planning on picking them both back up when I move next year.

I thought food poisoning was bad, but your right finals sound way worse.

Rock Band, if you feel like shelling out for all the gear.

You should learn guitar. I play bass, so we're that much closer to starting an internet band

Rock Band you could still do with one player though right? I only played it a few times but it was in a group.

I haven't been behind a drum set since high school. I figured learning the guitar would be a decent addition to the repertoire, though. At least with a guitar, you can just pick it up and play.

Does anyone here know about cars? I was taking my dog for a walk a little while ago, and I walked by this car that kept making a sound at seemingly random times like it was locking and unlocking. I looked in the car and it didn't seem on at all, it didn't even seem to have an alarm.

I have a strong imagination and got a bit freaked that there might be something alive in the trunk. I know it's crazy but, is there any chance of this?

If it had a remote then someone could have been hitting the lock and unlock buttons.

Also, forget rock band and guitar hero. Get a cheap strat, an amp, and learn three chords. It is much cooler and sounds awesome.

Thanks for the response. That could be it, but usually when that happens the cars lights go on and off, which wasn't happening.

Rock Band is the far superior product and pretty much offers everything Guitar Hero can and then some, provided you are willing to buy DLC. The song selection in Rock Band 3 is a little bit Keyboard heavy, since it is the newest feature they wanted to show off, but it the setlist still has some excellent songs for the rest of the instruments on it.

The latest Rock Band game also features a pro guitar mode, and there will supposedly be a guitar which is a normal musical instrument and also has a feature which lets you use it to play Rock Band with. I haven't looked deeply into the matter though, but if you want to learn guitar and play Rock Band, this might be the way to go.

I ****ing hate papers where you need a "minimum number of cited sources"

If I don't have enough ****ing reputable information in my paper that's on me. But dagnabbit I could write this paper in 3 hours if I didn't need to scour all these databases for sources

Why is it when I start hanging out with a girl, all my old crushes/fantasy girls start talking to me, then when I stop talking to said girl, they all stop talking to me. This has happened 4 times in the past 5 months. It's quite a vicious cycle. I swear sometimes I think my life is broadcast around and people just decide to **** around with me, haha. Can't blame them, I'd do the same.

Ugh, all my classes except one were canceled, but I'm not going to that... But im not sure if my exam is today or Wednesday in the class. But my car is on a donut so no reason to risk it. No reason to drive 50 miles just for one 40 minute class.

I tried to read around some other boards here. Holy **** is the Flyers board the most sane? I mean wow, even the board moderators are out of their mind on some of these.

This is what makes most research papers bunk. I just handed one in Friday that was 5-6 pages with at least 8 sources. I didn't even know how the hell to write it.

That crap is the worst. My solution was to use a lot of sources that were basically the same thing, so I could keep it consistent, but make it look like I got the info from all over the place. Squeezing info from 8 sources into 5 pages can be hard without doing something like:

"...because of the war shortages in Richmond, the Dispatch ran low on paper and ink, and thus issue size steadily decreased (Robertson). Ducks are an elegant species (Ranger Rick). As the war drove on, it became increasingly difficult to procure even the simplest commodities (Robertson)."

When you're with a female, you're illustrating higher social capital, ie, you become more worthwhile to have as a mate.

So in line with the thread on the main board about NHL players reading/posting at HFBoards... one thing became very clear is that Sean Avery does and is a moderator on the flyers board under the alias "Opus"

Sometimes when I auto-start my car the locks get "caught" or something and it sounds like it's trying to unlock over and over. Although, the truck is running at this point so I'm not sure if that could be it.
