Okay, so this was a while back now, and it was during a period of time when I “convinced” people that I belonged in the games industry by trying to be good at playing games.
I had serious issues playing Queens of the Stone Age’s “No One Knows” because it required me to use my pinky. I am pretty good at fine motor movement in general, but for some reason, both when I type and when I play, my pinkies don’t want to join. I can use them, sure, but it’s awkward and I’m faster without them.
Except in Guitar Hero, and except in this song. Well, I mean Franz Ferdinand’s “Take Me Out” is also pretty hairy. Eh, who am I kidding. Everything on Expert causes me to get pinky finger cramps, but “No One Knows” was really difficult for me for some reason, that when I nailed it on Expert, I barely believed it. And I never repeated it as perfectly as I did the first time I managed to 100% it.
It was a special moment. I kind of miss playing Guitar Hero. It’s a good game, and fun to boot.
