Yay! This should be great!
(I wonder if the backing vocals' lyrics on 'Girl' will be spelled out...)

From what I understand, the "official" lyrics for the backing vocals are "dit dit dit...", even if they are saying "tit tit tit..."

Since the game is supposed to be a family friendly game, you can be sure that they'll spell it with a D.

As far as more releases in the new year go, we might hear something from The Spike Video Game Awards tomorrow. Last year they announced a Pearl Jam album for Rock Band 2 DLC at the VGAs so maybe we'll get some insight for TB:RB before the weekend is over.

I was wondering if they would use dreamscapes for pre-pepper songs. After seeing that they would for about half of the album, I'm glad. They look cool as usual! It wouldn't be as interesting visually if you had to play the whole album at Shea.
I really hope they do Revolver next. I can see them doing something similar, half dreamscapes half Budokan.

My pleasure mluque! As a lover of Rock Band and The Beatles, I feel as though it is my honorable responsibility to share the great news with all of my fellow Beatle fans, and it's a joy to do so for sure!

I still have to buy Rubber Soul. Any reviews from those of you who bought it? Are any of the songs challenging?

Well mluque, this is a question that I have to answer on the curve. In my case, an expert Rock Band guitar player, I have yet to find a song on the game that I can't 5 star, including DLC. That being said, this album has quite a few songs that I have yet to gold star.

"Norwegian Wood" has some interesting jumps between playing rhythm guitar and sitar that are frustrating me and thus causing the gold to evade me.

"What Goes On" is flat out one of the harder guitar songs with a bunch of hammer ons and pull offs.

I've still not been able to gold "I'm Looking Through You".

"In My Life" is fairly basic and the only part that gives me trouble is George Martin's piano part that has been charted for the guitar player to play.

"Run for Your Life" is a fast little strummer. Lot's of rhythm playing with many opportunities to blow a gold star performance.

All of the songs on this album are fun and is my favorite album as a guitar player so far due to the amount of songs where the guitar player just plays the guitar and is not forced to play notes from other instruments.

They all seemed to me somehow easy, but that's because I only play the Easy mode

Anyway, this is how they are ranked in terms of difficulty (guitar):

BEGINNER
You Won't See Me

APPRENTICE
Nowhere Man
Girl
The Word

MODERATE
Wait
Think For Yourself

SOLID
Michelle
Run For Your Life

TRICKY
Norwegian Wood
In My Life
What Goes On

No Changelling or Demanding songs with the guitar

Seriously within the hour of my last post in this thread, I wound up getting gold on Norwegian Wood and Run For Your Life.
