As I said elsewhere, this feature is basically going to be like pro drums, where it has the potential to sound and feel amazing when used by someone who has a sense of timing and rhythm and can marry it with the song, and will be horrible when someone flails like an idiot every time the lanes come up.
Meh. If I wanted to make up my own music I would've kept up with learning guitar instead of giving up on it and just playing Rock Band. All I want to do is play along with my favorite music with the actual audio that made it my favorite music in the first place playing in the background. Guitar solos and drums fills, in many cases in songs, are some of the standout moments for me from the original recordings (also explains my not ever wanting to hear live recordings of my favorite music). Maybe I am in the minority on this.
Also, I am sure it feels equally amazing for people to just hit 100% the notes on screen where a drum fill would overwrite. Or 100% a fun, challenging solo instead of playing whatever you want in rhythm with the song. Always feels good to me. Different strokes I guess.
Agreed on this. I much prefer a well planned out solo such as my previously mentioned Hitch a Ride or Stranger in a Strange Land by Iron Maiden than a lead guitarist just showing off how fast they can play. Would still rather play along with the original solo as recorded, no matter how well thought out the notes were, and consider this new "standout" feature a total waste of time.
Kind of like actual guitar solos.
