HeyRiles;4890204 said:Five lanes is generally worse because more often than not it's got one lane that barely does anything, usually keys or bass.
SheSaidSheSaid;4890180 said:Let's try to cast aside any notions of 'depends on the song.' The Linkin Park songs and "Do You Feel Like We Do" are bawls in Blitz because of lanes doing very little, but the same is true of "Cool for Cats" with only four lanes (and probably plenty of other songs). If all else is equal, is it more fun to play with four lanes, or five?

SheSaidSheSaid;4890480 said:I find it fascinating how you guys got this idea that in every single five-lane song, one of the lanes has little if any notes in it.
Plutarch;4890525 said:You need to have a nice busy keys part for it to be fun. I can't stand it when you have to play the other instruments but then switch over to hit this long-ass chords and you have to basically hit all of them to get the multiplier up. It kind of put a damper on The Wicker Man for me, and I'm a rabid Iron Maiden fan. But like someone else said, usually a busy keys part winds up balancing out a slow guitar or bass part. That's why we need some power/progressive metal where all that stuff is busy. :P
Epsilon82;4890551 said:You probably already know this, but the way you phrased the "long chords" thing makes me want to make sure, but you don't have to hold the sustains to get the multipliers. In those cases, especially earlier in songs where the multipliers aren't up, you just want to hit the sustain briefly and then move off to busier tracks.
