A poll to bide some of our time until Rock Band arrives :smashin:. Whats the first thing you'll be doing as soon as you receive and unpack the game?

Myself, the first thing I'll do is go to the Drums Solo Career mode. I'm not sure what level to go on first, perhaps test the water with Easy :rolleyes:. After that I'll probably have a dabble in online player, and/or invite a friend who's already playered GH to be the guitarist.

What mods have you done then Tino? Thats pretty special, modding your kit before you even get it! Be interested to see some photos when you sort it out mate! :smashin:

Oh, and please God, no one tell me they're going to make an 'unboxing' video? You lads on these forums all seem like a great bunch, but all respect will go straight out of the window if anyone of you makes one of these 'Look at me I'm on the internet' wannabe cameos! Just promise me you wont guys, please!?

:lease:

First thing I'm going to do is start a solo vocal career and get the 100% vocals on Expert achievement on Blitzkrieg Bop.

Then I'll start on the drums... :devil:

No way am I making any videos on how to unpack a box.

I made my own Bass Pedal (about £20, 2nd hand pedal from ebay and about £3 for parts), theoretically it should work, but I haven't had any chance to test it yet, and I "build" the structual support mod (about £2), again in theory it should work but not 100% sure on that neither.
I also pre-ordered these. http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?product_id=70828

Ive put download some content as i must get the oasis tracks asap. However Rock'n'Roll Star is included in the UK version, so it may be guitar/drums on that song.

Well, to be fair, I've done it on the PS3 version many times, so there's no reason I cannot do it again on the 360 to get the achievement:

I will be downloading some DLC. One of my fave songs at the moment Crushcrushcrush by Parmore has some awesome drumming in it and I will be downloading then playing that.

I've gone for Guitar as I am hoping Shop-to get the game to me on wednesday or thursday but expect the instruments to be delivered on Friday.

Probably start on Easy as well (same as I have done for all the GH games) to bash through and open up some songs for when people come round.

What a legend! I'm gonna wait to see what the 'clack' is like on the drums before I go ahead and stick them on, but will probably do it anyway just cos I've bought them, and to see what they look like on! For those wondering about them, they arent that thick, but are rubber backed, and dont sound bad when i smack them with a pen on the table, but only time will tell if they are suitable for the game!!

Are those the ones from Wilkinsons? I got a set of those too, can't go wrong for 99p a pack.

My bass pedal, a bit messy but not bad for my first attempt

And the structual support mod.


I just hope these work the way I want them to....

Yeah they're the wilko ones! Well spesh!

That pedal looks the nuts! :eek: I'm gonna dip my toe in the water at first, and if it feels like its gonna go I'll order a metal one! I might do it regardless to make it look that bit better, but the Mrs will flip er lid if I buy anything more for Rock Band before it comes out! She's sick of hearing about it (but secretly cant wait to play it!)

Let us know how it all goes when the kit arrives then Tino mate! Looking forward to seeing some mods! :smashin:

Those 3 are the only ones I had planned. For all I know I may be absolutely rubbish at this game, but I have been waiting for so long now I just cant wait anymore.

I've not even told the wife about the pedal or anything else, I think she won't notice the difference :rotfl::rotfl:. I did only pay about £20 for the pedal and the parts so it's not to bad.

Chrispyphillips, is that a cyan or green mouse pad on the right? I had presumed the fourth colour to be green, and one of the pads I got from Wilkos was green (not that it should affect my game much :rolleyes:).

It is Green mate, the picture makes it look lighter than it is, but only slightly. Its a light shade, but unmistakably green! :smashin: Got the set from Wilks, red/green, blue/yellow. At least I think so, they might have differing variations in the packs!

Its almost as if Wilks knew.... :rolleyes:
