    Hard/Expert Guitar Hero!!!

    Hey guys, let me start by saying I LOVE guitar hero and it's loads of fun to do with friends, but I just CAN'T grasp hard difficulty, yeahs some of you "Experts" May laugh but I just can't do it. I remember a couple days ago, lol, I couldn't grasp medium, but at least than I had a finger to use for blues NOW ORANGE. I was hoping it was going to be like medium and after an hour of playing I'd get the hang of it but I haven't it, this is also annoying because I've 5-stared for some perfected all Easy songs, and 4 and 5 stared all medium songs, I don't really like online because of my skill level and it just annoys me, please help.
    Advice?
    Stories?
    Can anyone relate?
    What difficulty do y'all play on and how long did it take you to get there?
    Don't lie...
    Thanks in advance.

    yeah i understand your frustration. it took me all of an hour or two of playing to get the hang of hitting the blue fret, but i ended up taking nearly a week before getting the hang of the big scary orange monster.

    what i'm guessing is that you're trying to stretch your pinky to hit that new fret. that might work for a little while, but most players have developed a new position: putting your index finger on the RED fret, NOT GREEN, and allowing your pinky to hit the orange fret. from this position, you can easily stretch your index finger to hit the green frets. another option is to shift your entire hand between the two resting positions, which is what i do. it takes a bit more getting used to, but it doesn't strain your fingers nearly as much.

    all in all, just find a method that you're comfortable with and practice practice PRACTICE.

    btw, i now play on expert with ease after about a month of playing.

    I think im lucky I have long fingers, so I have an easy time reaching orange. Do what the person above me said, try putting your index finger on red.

    yep the transition from medium to hard is indeed a big one. i never had to make the transition from easy to medium as i started on medium (but i sucked terribly when i first started)... but it will definitely take some practice to squeeze in that fifth fret.

    what i do is slide my hand between the two resting positions as stated above. just practice, practice, practice. and that's what the little bump on the yellow fret is for. helps you regain your hand position after all that movin around

    I started playing expert on guitar hero II (xbox360) within a day or two of getting the game - I have a strong musical background and I find these rhythm type games more akin to sight reading and rhythm exercises of musicianship classes rather than playing an actual instrument obviously. But the key to actually doing it is picking a song that has some skill you'd like to learn (say fast changing chords or scale/run type solo) and practicing it slowly section by section on practice mode.

    Thanks guys, the only problem I would find with aving my index on red is that it would make it harder to get used to medium and easy again, lol ironic I know but it's the truth, I wanna be able to slide my hands, and I could use my pinky to hit blue and orange but honestly it's to hard for a finger that is slowly shrinking generation by generation, and what someone said about being confused about switching positions is exactly how I feel I get confused and fail :-(.

    i found that hard was jst like medium...except with the orange button lol. to play with that color, just shift your hand down the fret buttons one color. then your doing the same thing but with the setup of red, yellow, blue, orange. play like that until you feel that you can play sort of in the middle of everything like i do.

    this advice is coming from expert player (top score dragonforce about 380,000)

    edit:

    and for those fast notes, strum for the first one then go on without strumming (only if following notes are shining at the top). and if there is a sequence with many of one type of note like at the beginning of take this life (expert) just hold down the lowest note and play the rest normally

    thanx for me sig manred
