We have already wet our pants in excitement at the prospect of Rock Band 3, which looks set to wipe Guitar Hero off the face of the map.

But don’t worry amateurs; you can still bumble around on the lesser levels. Harmonix also explain how they have made navigation around the keys easier, and generally big up their ace looking game.
