OH my freakin gawd!!!!!! Is this like the hardest lego song out. I hate those type of notes, I just fail fail fail.

Does anyone have any good tips on getting through that kind of mess of notes where there seems to be such a crazy pattern of single,double, triple notes?:eek:

    Alt-strum, it is your best friend. Listen to how the song goes, how it repeats, and you'll get it down. You BETTER, anyways, because that riff is constant.

    I don't like it but it's not the worst song.. Make Me Smile or whatever it's called is.

    I HATE THE STRUMMING on this song SO much though.

    Don't start with THAT song to learn alt-strumming. I personally suggest Seven, if you have RB1, Kids in America for RB2, and Boys and Girls (The GC song) on LRB. If you can't get the rhythm down to begin with, these and other chordy songs are a great choice to practice on.

    Edit: forgot about Rooftops, that's roughly the same speed as Kung Fu Fighting and it'll get you used to the quicky chord changes.

    Nah. Rooftops is a better start, but those are good too.

    actualy, i find the alt strumming used in kung fu fighting to NOT be like kids in america/seven
    they are more like chop suey in rb2

    He was saying to play those songs to practice before moving on to the more challenging alt-strum songs. I can alt-strum perfectly at almost any speed, but when you make it like Chop Suey or Kung Fu Fighting, I can't keep up. Literally, my only Achilles Heel on any instrument. .=./' HEY A LAWN MOWER! LOL!!

    I must be lucky. I never had any trouble with Chop Suey or Pinball Wizard and such, so this wasn't too bad for me. Alt strumming only trips me up when there's an even number of notes (ie, finishes on an upstrum) or if it changes speed (I'm looking at you, Libyans).

    I started alt-strumming early on though. It may not help, but the first thing I did was learn to integrate alt-strumming into regular play. If there's a constant stream of notes but with one random set of three thrown in, instead of rapidly taping down three times, just upstrum between the two regularly spaced notes and you hit it without even breaking stride. Once you get used to that, you can nail stuff like the fast bits at the end of Rock'n Me with no problem, and eventually harder alt-strum patterns like Chop Suey, Pinball Wizard, and Kung Fu Fighting.

    Give It All is easy for me, and always has been since the second time I played it. Ending on upstrums. WTF.

    Completely agree. I hate Kung Fu Fighting but at least it goes somewhere. I apparently suck at alt strumming, Kung Fu took me like 5 tries to 5 star. I had to downstrum it all to do it.

    I like Pinball Wizard for Guitar, but not Chop Suey.

    Kung Fu Fighting is somewhere in the middle of these two songs on my likeness scale.

    I have major issues alt-strumming long patterns with constant note changes, but I am able to downstrum most songs. I was able to downstrum this song all the way, but it was tiring as all hell. For comparison, I can only downstrum about halfway through Pinball Wizard or Chop Suey before tiring out.

    There were a couple other songs that were really tiring to downstrum in the lego setlist, but I don't remember the names right now.

    Despite being a good expert guitarist, this song still gave me a run for my money.

    I admit to only four-starring this song the first time it came up

    THEN three-starring it when it was the immediate next song on the damn Mystery Setlist we chose
