    Took the entire kit to a friends house for a drunken wedding party, we rocked out for hours, and I managed to get everything back in one piece. That makes it about 10 times I've had the entire kit torn down and hauled somewhere, then bashed on by random people (usually under the influence) without incident.

    It's funny but the only times I've ever had damage done to any of the instruments has been at home with my usual band. My theory is that while my band and I play on hard / expert, usually everyone is on easy / medium at parties.

    Pulled myself into the top 4400 for Guitar Solo Career. Don't think it's updating very well, though. My game showed something around 8.3M points, while the website several hours later is only showing around 8.1.

    If the damn thing would update properly, it should put me in the top 3500 or so.

    I'm getting pretty damn bored of trying to Gold Star songs, though. I've been working on the harder songs, and missing that one note over and over is just getting annoying. I'll probably stop playing guitar soon and go back to having fun on the drums.

    Moved up to Medium on Drums and beat about 15 songs in a row. Given the last time I tried medium drums I failed out every third song or so, that was a pretty good one for me. I finally started to get the Yellow, Y+R, Yellow, Y+Foot, Yellow rhythm down.

    Since last Monday, I finally:

    Completed the Hard guitar tour (still about 10 songs to go to complete the Expert tour)

    Gold-starred another song on guitar

    Earned Flawless achievements on guitar, drums and bass

    Finally started going through and playing all our DLC on Hard (we mostly play quickplay or World Tour, so I'd never gone through and played 'em on Solo tour. A lot of them I hadn't played yet or hadn't played on Hard).

    I beat Dead On Arrival and Detroit Rock City on Expert drums today, then five-starred Enter Sandman on my first playthrough. And then I failed out of Reaper, but I was mentally prepared for that.

    I also got my first gold star on drums this week. I'm pretty sure that if not for faulty drums, I would be fc'ing some of the easy songs, but as it was I had my streak broken several times.

    I did my first successful tapping using the solo frets on Bloodstone (at the end where it keeps going G B G R G Y G R G Y G O G R or whatever). And beat Green Grass and High Tides (Expert Guitar) but that might have been last week actually.

    Only gotta beat Snow ((Hey Oh)) and Ride the Lightning now.

    I found out that even though I generally play guitar at the medium level, I can actually play Roxanne on expert and do fairly well. I was shocked at how simple the song's note progression was once I actually looked at it and didn't do the whole *panic!* thing because it was on expert. It may very well be my 1st gold star if I set down one day and really hammer on it.

    Picked up a couple more gold star last night. Foreplay/Longtime and Wanted Dead or Alive. Also finally hit every note in that little crazy part at the end of Wanted Dead or Alive, I was so stoked.

    I beat Through the Fire and Flames on guitar, Can't Let Go on expert vox, and Won't Get Fooled Again on drums. All three were pretty cool. Can't Let Go was in Band Quickplay, and I did Won't Get Fooled on my friend's version of Rock Band for the Wii. TTFAF is probably my greatest achievment ever.

    Finally broke 10.5 career score on drums. Next stop, 10.6 (which would be easily do-able if I could frigging 5* RTTH - I HATE THAT SONG) :)

    Oooo, and I finally got my 100% FC on expert vocals (I suck @ vocals :) )

    managed to get into the top 3500 LIVE Guitar players now... Although the stupid leaderboard on this website won't update properly, the in game leaderboard does.

    I got an FC on Crushcrushcrush on Expert vocals, my lungs are normally too weak for that, but I made it all the way through, it was actually one of the most epic things I've ever done.

    After owning the game since early January, just last night I finally beat Green Grass and High Tides on expert guitar. Amazing feeling of relief and accomplishment. I was just about to crack and get a friend to beat it for me for the achievement too, so happy I did it myself though.
