Appears InEdit

Guitar Hero III (Tier 5)

This song appears as a Cover Version.


This song is passable if you complete the intro. This song is much like Through the Fire and Flames because both of their intros are the hardest parts of the songs and the rest of both songs are passable.

For the intro, there are a lot of fast trills in which you have to strum really fast and hard for. Watch out for the middle where there's a slower trill in which you have to slow you're strumming down for.

If you pass the intro, the rest of the song is easy. Just don't get distracted because you've worked hard to get out of the intro successfully. Watch out for several lines of triple notes throughout the songs, especially in the first guitar solo (before the first verse) and in the bridges near the end of the song.

Other than the intro, this song is easy to FC.

While this is overall a fairly easy song to complete, the extended intro has very long strings on very fast notes, which make the song difficult to FC. The extended intro was added for Guitar Hero, and is not in the original 1980 recording of the song.
