    Currently ranked top 10 on all three All That Remains songs on Expert Guitar
    (SH leaderboards) :D

    100% on Chiron (two overstrums, I can turn that into an FC)
    99% on This Calling (I can FC it, but I always seem to miss a couple of the gallops. Solo FC)
    98% Two Weeks (I should be able to FC outside the solo but I keep either strumming one too many times, or one too few times on the gallops. Probably never FC the trills in the solo)

    Now if I could just get that last 9k for the Blackened GS...

    This was an amazing achievement for me. I beat "This Calling" on X Drums genuine sightread and I FC'd the intro up until the rolls. and what's funny now I can I keep failing around 54% or 72%.

    Today I gold starred Vasoline, Hysteria and Won't get Fooled Again. I also got to 7.5 mil on expert guitar, big thing for me. I am ready for RB2 now.

    That made absolutely no sense.

    Basically today was my biggest day, haha, when I actually realized my strum bar was working, I gold starred:

    (Don't Fear) The Reaper
    Cherub Rock
    Reptilia
    and Go With the Flow.

    Yay for me. Got close on Won't Get Fooled Again as well.

    I finished off all the online achievements except for 20 tug of wars. I have 10 of those left. I am going to have to buy a mic stand or clone myself to get all of my Big In achievements. My band mate ditched me. Other than that, I have all the in game achievements done.

    My personal achievement was to download and beat Snow (Hey Oh). I am proud to say I did that on a sight read:) It was ugly, but I did it.

    My victory of the week just happened about...an hour ago.

    When I first got the Disturbed pack, I could only pass Indestructible on drums...and it took a quite a few tries to get it down.

    However, while booting up Rock Band to beat the Stephen Colbert song on Hard and Expert with every instrument, I figured I'd screw around while on drums and try a few songs that were previously unbeaten. Now...the most shocking part of this is that I usually wear certain shoes when playing drums that work really well and feel good on the bass pedal, but...since the Stephen Colbert song sounded like it'd be basically an automatic Gold Star, I just remained barefoot as I was before booting up the game.

    I then went on to play Inside a Fire...once again, barefoot, which I never play drums barefoot, haha. First try...passed! It wasn't pretty, but I passed it so I don't give a damn, haha. Then I'm like...wow, that seemed much easier than I remember it, let's try Perfect Insanity... First try...passed!

    I honestly don't know what the hell is going on. I guess I've gotten a bit better on drums...but, during both songs, my foot honestly felt like it was hardly working. During the fast bass pedal parts of Inside a Fire and Perfect Insanity, I was doing terribly with the foot pedal due to being barefoot yet somehow still survived... I'm just...confused, shocked, amazed, and...kind of excited that I have definitely improved without really knowing it.

    I beat GGaHT on expert guitar... ok, no I didn't. I failed miserably at it every time at 81%. I hate that song.

    I FINALLY beat GG&HT on Hard Bass I have only ever done 82% of the song until tonight (and this is solo, no band members helping me out)! Too bad it was a messy score 76%!

    I beat Bite the Hand that Feeds You for the first time on expert drums (the speed of the song was a killer for me) and went on to beat the next tier of songs one after the other on my first try. I was seriously in the zone that day.

    I had a lot of victories about....2 hours ago.

    I finally....even though it almost dominated my arm in the process...5* Snow on Expert Guitar.....and now I think I can actually Gold Star it.

    Finally beat Thrasher on Expert Guitar. I did horrible but...I beat it. All I ask for.

    And I upped my percentage on the 'Constant Motion' solo by breaking the 75% barrier....it still sucks like a mofo to play.

    And I Gold Starred Screaming For Vengeance.....I have no clue how I did it though. Only got 93% and had OD remaining....Must've been a very good run or something...I dunno.

    By the way....the Snow/Thrasher/Constant Motion victories were ONE AFTER ANOTHER....no breaks in between either....I really think I was going for the victory of losing my hands during that set....

    Tomorrow I'm going for FC's on Hammerhead and Toxicity....really want to get them out of the way before Rock Band 2 because I get -1 on both of them.....

    I finally, FINALLY beat Charlene. Man, that one's a pain in my gluteals!

    Also, I got my Score Duel Streak. And that's five in a row, with none of them dropping out early! (Not to say I haven't run into that behavior, but I somehow managed five victories in a row without losing or them disconnecting!)

    I just beat GGaHT on expert guitar. I've had Rock Band since the day it launched. At first I played guitar and drums pretty equally; as I progressed I started playing drums more. Eventually I reached a point where I had only one song left on my expert guitar tour, while my drumming was considerably more advanced than that. Sick of GGaHT, I started to drum exclusively, not really touching the guitar for months. Well, I've had a bit of an RMA delay on my drums, so I decided to give GGaHT another try. Tried it a few times two days ago, a few times yesterday, and finally beat it today. It took me forever, but that's not affecting this feeling of victory!

    :D Flawless Drummer, and Flawless Groove Achievements! I have been trying to get the drummer one for some time, my red pad sucks! The Bass achievement was just an unexpected surprise! I don't play bass often. :D

    Finally gold starred Should I Stay or Should I Go on guitar. Pathetic, I know, but I had trouble with going too fast on pulling off RB to hit a single R until I really focused on it. And, it wasn't because of the new GS changes. I really killed it. Ranked around 9000, which is great for me :p

    Also GS'd Maps, Orange Crush, and When We Were Young. Only one did I miss the old GS cutoff - by less than 100 points. I'll take them though.

    Brings my number of gold starred songs up to 10!
