Anyone out there interested in forming a Rock Band 2 online band?  I prefer to play drums, but can also play guitar and bass on Expert.  Just need 3 others and we are ready to roll.

I'd be up for this ... I am just another "normal" guitarist trying to make the leap to hard.

I'll play, but I'm no expert.  I do alright on hard, though there are some songs that will frustrate me.

I'd prefer to play with breakneck speed turned on.

I'm up for some online play. I work nights, so it's kinda hard for me to schedule time but if you ever see me online shoot me an invite smile.

I play drums on hard (just beginning on expert).

I'm game for a band too, so far I'm pretty much stuck at medium however.  Still trying to make the leap to Hard / Expert.

I usually play drums but I can do guitar or bass or even sing.

I think we should form up and tackle the 80's battle.

All 3 songs are not crazy hard and with some practice we may be able to post a good score.

We need 4 people for this one. 

1.  bass - denoginizer

2.  drums - Gratch (Friday)

3.  guitar - Boudreaux

4.  vocals -

I'm in for any instrument. Hard to Expert on bass/guitar, medium to hard on drums, not sure about vox (very difficult when you don't know the songs).

BUT, I'm on the West Coast and usually don't get my game on until after 8:00pm PST. Though that didn't stop me and Isgrimnur from rockin out a few weekends ago.

In for ANYTHING. I absolutely love playing online with others, well any GT or OO'ers for sure.

I play guitar only (on hard for now) but I'll happily play lead or bass, or alternate. I have tons of DLC and just got the new Rush album so I should be set for most anything.

Invite me anytime, tag is JTJ66

A buddy and myself will be playing tonight at around 9pm EST.

I'm drums, and he plays guitar/bass.

We'd love a 3rd and 4th if possible.

I play Hard on drums.. but you guys would kick our asses.

Denog & Gratch would kick ass yes, I'm just a very mediocre hard level guitarist. It might be fun nonetheless. If nothing else maybe we could figure out how BotB works.

Think of Battle of the Bands as a high score bulletin board.  You (and your band, if applicable) play the designated setlist and are competing on the specified criteria.  You do not play head-to-head with anyone at the time.  Your score is posted and the Friends tab will show you who has previously performed the battle, what their scores were, and where you rank once you've performed.  When you re-enter the BotB area, you will get a screen that will inform you how many places you've been bumped down on each active battle and the time remaining if you want to try it again.

Since I can't match up score-wise with some the savant-level players on OO/GT, I typically stick to streak/star battles. 

I'd be interested in some MP when available.  Anything on for this evening?

Guitar: Hard, not top level
Drums: Medium

Yeah, I think denog and I were in for a meetup tonight, so you'd be welcome. I play guitar on hard too, so we could trade off lead/bass if you'd like. Or if you prefer only lead or bass, that's fine too, I'm flexible.

What's your gamertag, and timezone, availability, etc?
