vicious136;565654 said:Changed my cell phone ring to New Born today. I really think that song needs to be in RB. And to be honest, I don't even think they need to map the piano intro to anything. It can just be an intro like the one in Foreplay/Longtime or Won't Get Fooled Again. In fact, I think it'd be better that way because that build up is freakin' awesome!
TakeABow;565693 said:Whenever there is a song with a piano/synth intro before the guitar kicks in, it is far more dramatic if the guitar player doesn't play until the guitar part actually begins. New Born would not be an exception.Anyone else have Muse Ringtones? Mine is the solo from Invincible (the H.A.A.R.P. version).
Bubblegum;566189 said:If I had a functioning cellphone, I'd have a Muse song as my ringtone. Maybe New Born or Hysteria or Invincible or Muscle Museum or... eh, if I had a cellphone and it played me a Muse clip whenever someone called it, I'd probably never answer it. ._.; I'd be a happy camper, though.I agree that the guitar in New Born shouldn't be mapped until there's guitar to map. As much as I love the keyboard intro, it probably wouldn't be fun on the guitar controller. Plus, all the other band members are doing stuff for the introduction, and the guitar player always sees so much action in all the other songs that it's probably time the others had their time to shine.Plus, the rest of the song would totally make up for it. The song is six minutes, and the guitar comes in somewhere around 1:30, which leaves four minutes and thirty seconds for the guitarist to go nuts (longer than the average Rock Band song, probably, definitely if you take out curve-skewers like Green Grass and High Tides.). And New Born would be a fun guitar song.It's a definite must for Rock Band.But I'd like to hear the crowd sing along to the chorus. That'd be awesome.Speaking of which, the chorus of Hysteria would be awesome with a crowd sing-along. If it's coming on the European disc, maybe we'll get it here.Though, compared to having Muse in the game, crowd sing-alongs are small potatoes.
Kotrl;566512 said:Muse only has 3 members (+that extra guy on Live performances) but I guess it would work because Bellamy sings and plays guitar.
TakeABow;566754 said:Two extra guys actually. Morgan Nicholls - keyboards, synthesisers, backing vocals.Dan Newell trumpet
Alright_Computer;566912 said:I've only seen the trumpet guy perform on Knights of Cydonia so far, but since that's a live concert staple, I guess they need someone there. Muse were never the ones that use samples at concerts.P.S. I think the crowd sing-alongs would be awesome on the following, if they ever made it into the game:New BornKnights of CydoniaTime is Running OutHysteria (this may actually happen)Stockholm SyndromeAnd so on.For proof just watch HAARP.
TakeABow;566915 said:Trumpet Man Newell also plays in City of Delusion.The H.A.A.R.P. CD version of Time Is Running Out has probably the most amazing crowd participation I have ever heard. They were almost as loud as Matt was, even amplified to be loud enough for all of Wembley to hear him.Amazing stuff. People sing along for almost all of the HAARP DVD.
Alright_Computer;566928 said:Oh. I guess I didn't know he played on City of Delusion (stupid UK iTunes pre-orders...) or I never noticed it before. And yeah, Muse is one of the best, if not the best, live bands of today, and the crowd participation just adds to that.
TakeABow;566939 said:A big factor of them being so good live is they produce everything with on-stage instruments, with real live musicians. Not being bound to a backtrack of any kind allows for complete freedom for improvisation, which they excel at. Combine this with thier amazing musical abilities, and the feeling they put into their songs, and you get something truly epic.
Alright_Computer;566957 said:Yeah, Matt's improvised solos are really great. I think there's one before Stockholm Syndrome on the DVD. Whichever song it was, it was really good.
TakeABow;566970 said:Beyond the random solos, which were indeed good, the ability to stretch out the pre-solo hook on a song an extra few bars for emphasis, or even just adding random notes into songs, changing chords slightly, and whatever else they wanted to do. Plus all the random effects modulation Matt does using the XY pad built into his custom Mansons.
Alright_Computer;566976 said:Yeah, plus they can interpret other songs into their own songs. I like where they cover Rage Against the Machine's cover of Maggie's Farm at the end of one of their own songs. (that was a mouthful)
TakeABow;566980 said:Yeah, after Stockholm Syndrome. And Matt had to re-tune his guitar on the fly for that.
Alright_Computer;567001 said:I wouldn't be able to tune my guitar accurately to Drop D or whatever tuning it's in that quickly. Not only is Matt a guitar hero, he's also a tuning hero.
TakeABow;567015 said:QFT. Some of my friends who play guitar alot can switch to Drop D pretty fast, but not as fast as Matt can.
Strawberry Fields;567025 said:Whoa Whoa, aren't Maggie's Farm AND Stockholm Syndrome both in Drop D? At least that's how I play them.
Alright_Computer;567036 said:I was actually wrong about Maggie's Farm being in Drop D. Stockholm Syndrome is in Drop D, and Maggie's Farm is in Drop B. :eek: That's low. Especially for Chris.
