Hey -- If there's anyone out there who likes to play this game just for fun, I'd love to hear from you. I play guitar/bass mostly on expert and have loads of DLC including the ACDC track pack and RB1 songs. I'm 33 and prefer playing with "the older crowd". Gamertag is sea stewardess, feel free to add me. All skill levels and instruments welcome!! :)

    What nights/times are you looking to play?

    I'll be 36 next week, have all the DLC/RB1/RB2/ACDC imported.

    I can do drums on hard/expert(gold star some of the earlier expert songs, some of the impossible/nightmare songs I CAN'T do on expert)

    I can do vox med/hard (Prefer med as my vocal chords don't catch on fire, but I will do hard if need be)

    Guitar/Bass hard/expert (can do pretty much all the songs on expert except some of the impossible stuff. Not great at the higher difficulty tiered songs, but I can do them on expert).

    38 - I mainly like to sing if you need vocals (expert), over 80 DLC tracks plus RB1 tracks. Will grab Steve Miller tonight. Not a big fan of the screaming/growling songs but can hum if you pick them.

    Hey Sea,

    It's good to see others in the over 30 club that play RB2. I play with random people online a lot, and most are frickin' 13 year olds haha!

    Like you, I also have a lot of DLC (about 240 songs), the AC/DC pack, and RB1 songs exported. It'd be nice to jam out with someone that actually has some of the additional DLC songs for once.

    I'm a Platinum artist on Lead, Bass, and Vocals, so I don't mind filling in where ever is needed. I play most nights for about an hour (or more if I'm not going out with my buddies).

    Oh, I almost forgot. I'm just about to turn 31 and I live in the CST timezone; if that helps gauge when I'm usually on.

    Hit me up and lets jam out. My tag is Degs44.

    Later,

    Degs

    They're just too busy being 'grown ups' ;)

    Where's the fun in that? :D

    Crystal there's never anyone around my place that wants to sing, certainly not on expert.

    If you want to join up with us when we're online shoot me a friend invite or what have you.

    The more the merrier :D

    35 here.

    I have exported RB1 and about 170 DLC. I pretty much stick with drums on hard, unless I know it's a song I can breeze through then I step it up to expert. On crazy songs like Painkiller I may just go down to medium because - while I can play them on hard - they just aren't fun (for me at least!), and if I'm having an off night I hate for people to bail me out of trouble.

    I'd love to jam out with any of y'all. So many on XBL want/expect others to play on expert...I'm just not quite there yet. :o My schedule is odd right now so I'm online at various times throughout the day/week.

    I usually play two nights a week once on the weekend and on Wednsdays after bowling (beer helps me sing, or at least I think it does). I can play bass and some guitar on expert. Not great at the drums, only medium (the bass peddle kills me).

    I got the invite from you Sea, Thanks.

    Others my tag is -aaronond (222 songs total) if your interested.

    Fun thread. I'd love more mature people to jam with. I'm not actually 30 but getting pretty close.

    I have RB1/20Free/ and ~65 other DLC with that number increasing regularly.

    Anyone and everyone should feel free to add me. I mostly play Drums on Hard/Expert, but also can and will play guitar/bass on expert.

    Hiya! I am 31 and do vocals on medium. I can do base/guitar on easy. Drums are out of the question- LOL. I have some DLC. I played online last night for the first time with random people and it was fun for the most part... but man there are some rude kids out there who expect everyone to be experts like they are I guess. Anyway if you wanna play...let me know.

    30 year old bass(MED/HARD) and guitar (Med) looking to play for fun and the achievements.

    Feed up feeling bad for playing med with expert bands :(

    I have all free dlc content + RB1 + a good hand full of track packs.

    Anyone feel free to give me a shout for a game.

    Will be on this afternoon 1pm GMT if anyone is up for doing the band challenge or anything

    I'm also glad to see so many of you who are in my age bracket (well, a bit younger, I'm mid 40's). I also have tons of DLC, the AC/DC tracpac, the Boston album, The Who Album, The Cars, The Country Pack, the NoDoubt album, etc. I am a drummer and play Expert/Hard, I love almost all kinds of music (that yelling speed metal is not really my cup of tea), but my favorites are good old rock and roll with a 4 on the floor beat! My gamer tag is SeekonkRay.

    Oh, my first experience trying the online band stuff really pissed me off. What is it with these arrogant gamers who insult you for no reason about your ability or skill level? I just want to have fun, break a sweat and jam!

    I don't mind jamming with players who play on any level, so if you are a bass/guitar/vocalist and enjoy playing, I'm more than happy to sit in on drums (no matter your level).

    I can sympathize, magicmarker. Even while playing mainly hard, at times I feel bad when I'm surrounded by expert/platinum players. Some folks are great and don't care what level you play at, but others... *shrug* I just want to play, enjoy the music, and have fun. :cool:

    I sent out a bunch of friend requests yesterday, and will send others out today to the newest posters once my son jumps off the XBox.

    Hey Raknot, thanks for the "30 minute" jam session yesterday - it was fun. :D

    Another thing I'd really like to see is some mentoring. For instance, a skilled drummer could help you out (like a lesson). Unfortunately I can't figure out how you would do that in the game since you can only do an instrument battle. It would be great if you could do freestyle mode using 2 instruments. Then, you could help someone. Heck, you could even give lessons out! Hmmm, now there is an idea!

    38 years old and like to jam to all the music and do not care about scores/skill level.
    I have all the DLC, RB1, ACDC etc.
    Guitar/Bass - expert (preferred)
    Drums - hard/some expert

    I am usually playing solo so hit me up with an invite.

    I think if anyone has been playing on hard for a while, if they play with a truly xpert band, they can play xpert! I am an expert vocalist and have helped many players by using my star power to bring them back up before they crash! You're missing out on alot fun!
    Most expert players don't want to help cause they need the star power for themselves or they are trying to achieve 8x multipliers!! which= Gold Stars and Points.
    So try Xpert level, you'll never play hard again
    Plus I will have more older bandmates to JAM with .......no offense:eek:

    Sry I don't leave gt but I will look you up when i can
    keep leaving you gamertags guys :D
