Guitar Hero Live will be playable casually, but those of you who love to turn the difficulty up and risk RSI are perfectly welcome to do so.

The PlayStation Blog asked three of the game’s developers what the hardest songs are.

Midi designer Aaron Grimes picked Megadeth’s Hangar 18, saying the solos are particularly challenging.

Senior game designer Nathan chose Cry of Achilles by Alter Bridge, highlighting the acoustic intro and tempo changes as well as lengthy outro.

Finally, audio designer Mike McLafferty chose a Lamb of God classic, Ghost Walking, saying the riff is really satisfying when you do finally get it right.
