Pretty stoked for "How Soon is Now" and "Bitter Sweet Symphony" since we hadn't figured that one out in the Hints thread; more The Smiths is always welcome by me. Thanks for another great week!

Congrats funky, crazy to think you have gone from watching the pksage tutorial video to now being a C3 author, shows it can be done.

Nice week again guys, and a personal thank you for The Verve.

Fantastic! Welcome to funky, WCiBN? will be a lot of fun. And a huge thanks to Ollie for 3 songs aimed square at my and my wife's heart! The previous version of Where is My Mind? Was nice, but vocals are a must for this one!

And I've gotta admit, those other Mr. Big tracks have some appeal. Despite being born in 1980 I somehow managed to go my whole life without hearing "To Be with You." When Harmonix released it and I heard it for the first time I laughed, because it sounded to me like a bad parody of late 80s ballads. Now I randomly hear it in the grocery store all the time. And the other stuff on the album sounds much better. :)

Awesome, picking up Bittersweet Symphony, Where Is My Mind, Who Can It Be Now, and maybe more. Thanks for another great week!
Also, I didn't realize that Mr. Big song came out as official DLC so I will buy that and check out the rest of the album. Congrats, you just got Harmonix another DLC sale.

Longtime lurker- first time writer.

General comment: Let me first say what y'all have been doing is INCREDIBLE. I have the utmost respect and admiration for what y'all have created here and continue to create every week; your passion for games and music is obvious. I try to get the word about what you're doing here whenever possible.

This-week comment: At first I was like Mr. Big??? That band with that one song that was sort of a big pop hit? But seeing the charts and hearing the album, they are pretty much perfect for Rock Band. And the singles... I couldn't have picked them better myself. These are so right up my alley it's ridiculous. Big respect for the sheer variety of genres each week, too... Mama Harmonix would be proud.

Seemingly-mean-spirited-but-not-intended-that-way-at-all comment: As a pro drummer (in Rockband, but also irl drummer), am I the only who winces (good naturedly) a little at some of the drum charts? Don't get me wrong, some are nearly flawless, and none of them have major problems - they are on time and the major snare-bass-hi-hats are intact, and that's by far the most important thing.

Yet basically every week, even just from the previews I see obvious (to me) details that are missing or off - usually a note here or there, but rarely anything more. I tend to be a stickler for details, so I accept it probably annoys me more than most others. I only say this in the spirit of good-will and constructive criticism... with the sheer volume and consistency of content, I'm sure mistakes are inevitable; even Harmonix had some well-known bugs. All the same, is there a way for average (but dedicated) schmoes such as myself to proofread tracks before release, at least to have another set of eyes? Or something to help... because I really do dig what y'all are doing. :)

Thanks for the support, appreciated. :) About the first line there, is it's *only* from the preview video, as we state in each blog post, preview videos are done before the last round of fixes, so some stuff will be off. If it's from playing too, you can report issues by clicking on Report Song Issues at the top of the page. You can also apply to be a playtester by sending a PM to espher.

Thanks for the all the kind words everyone. I must of course give a lot of credit to Farottone for bringing my track up to C3 standards and adding in pro keys and harmonies. I also have to credit fellow user angruss, whose uploads of karaoke game's songs provided me with the great vocals to my song. There are still a lot of great tracks there for people like me who don't have the ability to chart vocals well.

I wish my name could be a normal occurrence in the weekly releases, but you won't be seeing me there much. I'll mostly be sticking to my own thread. It's great to get my name in the database though. If anyone ever wants to pitch vox on my AC/DC tracks, I'd gladly work with you on everything else to make them up to C3 standards.

Ah, that's a good point. I don't always download every song, so I may be totally off-base on some of them. :3

I'll do that. Thanks for the reply!!

Mr. Big, I cannot believe it!! They were my first favourite band when I was 13 years old.

Thank you sooooo much.
