Texas Flood

Album cover

Texas Flood is a song by Stevie Ray Vaughan featured in Guitar Hero. It is considered one of the hardest songs to 5-star; the general unreliability of HOPOs in the original Guitar Hero almost forces the player to strum every note, making this chart an unforgiving combo breaker. It also has the infamous OSSoD - the Orange Star Stream of Death (at about 3:59 in the video) - they are triplet thirty-second notes, meaning 48 notes are packed into a measure (12 into a beat).


The song isn't as tough to pass as it is to five star. Although tough HOPO sections are abundant, they won't keep the player struggling to pass; they will most likely just destroy combos. Try to strum as many notes in the longer strings as you can, or if you're daring, go ahead and try those HOPOs.
