What is the best strategy for completing Mama Kin on hard?

  1. I have been practicing the song on all speeds but nothing seems to work

  1. It is more than hitting more notes. Here is a couple bits of advice:

    1. Save your star power. If you are just trying to pass, get your star power (if you get far enough to try to get it) only use it when you absolutely need to.

    2. Don't tense up your hands. Use a loose grip!

    3. On songs like this and Crazy On You (as an example), I just take it a couple notes at a time. You should dissect the notes in your head to help force you to let go of the second fret.

    4. Like others have said on here, you should practice, practice, practice! If you can't make it very far in, more than likely (and I hate to say this) you are not to that level yet. Heck, it still happens to me on Expert (TTFAF, Jordan, Raining Blood, One, etc.), and I have beat GH1 (PS2) and Aerosmith (both on Expert). Don't feel bad and hold your held up. You will pass this when the time comes!!!

  1. Just relax and take ur time. Mama Kin has a lot of double notes. If you want to just pass it, get all star power and use it when ur close to failing. If you want to perfect the song, try doing Personality crisis or any song that mainly uses double notes and practice.

  2. The key is not to panic, panicking makes it worse because you end up hitting random notes.

  3. A few more pieces of advice:

    -Make sure your ring and pinky fingers have the dexterity of your index and middle fingers.

    -Practice hammer-ons/pull-offs

    -Familiarize yourself with the song. Recognize your trouble spots and practice those specifically. Remember: you can't play fast what you can't play slow.

    -With Star Power, you don't need to be completely proficient with solos. Even one correctly played note can be more than enough.

    -Increase volume.

  4. there really is NOT an answer to this question...seriously there is NO answer, all you have to do is be better, don't take this message as me being a dick, you just should not have posted this question in the first place, especially since mama kin is a very forgettable, and easiness goes hand and hand with that, and obviously, you pretty much answered your question in your question, keep practicing. And watching youtube videos seems to have some sort of effect as well.
