Billy Joel DLC coming in December.
Apparently 2 packs:

Rock Band is excited to offer a new Billy Joel edition of the popular video game, providing a masterful keyboard experience of his music to fans around the world through two downloadable game packs: a "Hits" pack of 12 songs arriving in December 2010 followed by a 6-song "Piano Challenge" pack in the spring.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Granted I don't have it yet, but I'm a little disappointed by Rock Band so far. Sounds like they removed Score Duel, which was always a fun distraction for me. You can't do Breakneck Speed in practice mode rendering it pretty useless for anyone who uses that option in the regular game. No Squier guitar for months, making the keyboard the only real selling feature out of the gate for me. I'm not going to shell out the money for the guitar with buttons in the meantime as it's not cheap.

Some of the upcoming DLC sounds good at least.

There is some kind of Score Duel...
Make a setlist, play it and see if your (online) friends can beat the score...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I pre-ordered my copy yesterday (I wanted to Gamestop "Talking Heads" track) and picked up the cymbal expansion set. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but it seems to be pretty quality.

This is actually a bit exciting as there is a new instrument to play now. I think it took me a week to go to Expert Guitar on the original GH and a month or two for drums on RB. I wonder how long it will take me to get to Expert Pro-Keys? Probably a few months even though I do have a little piano experience.

Yeah... that's not a score duel. If you took multiplayer out of say... FIFA would you say "Well there's a kind of multiplayer, just pick the same team and see who can win the World Cup first"

Having two people playing the same chart side by side, one run, one chance is a lot different than grinding out your best possible score for a leaderboard.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

That sucks. I love playing the Journey, RHCP and Soundgarden songs. Maybe I will hold on to my RB2 disc.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Somehow bundles managed to make it to my city. Anyhoo, I'm trying to do the pro-keys trainer and the intervals are confusing me. It'd help if they just showed where your hands are supposed to be, but they just give you a vague "use your middle fingers and thumb" instruction as if I know what they mean.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Yeah, it's like they tell you what fingers to use for certain keys, but not all of them. I think a little more hand holding is in order in the trainer. I would think that you would want to use the correct fingers and build muscle memory for that. Learning to do some of this stuff with the wrong fingers is just going to bite you in the ass down the road I think.

And 2 more:

"Hier Kommt Alex" by Die Toten Hosen (from the European version of Rock Band)
"Rock 'n' Roll Star" by Oasis (from the European version of Rock Band)
Mostly relicensing issues/guitar hero exclusivity i'ld wager...
Except for the DLC songs for September 15th last year, seems to be a missed bug...
