Glad to know im not the only newbie to this game. Im a die hard nintendo fan. Got the original nintendo for christmas when I was 10 and have had every incarnation of nintendo ever since. So Ive never really been exposed to games like this before. After playing it for only a day I have to say I am hooked! But man was this game this tough for all you people who played GH1 when it first came out? Easy mode isnt too bad but if I even attempt anything other than easy Im toast. I know youre gonna say it takes time right. But I used to play the guitar so I guess I kinda thought this game would be easier for me than it is. I was wrong. Any tips for a GH newbie?
