100% Gold Star Expert Solo Vocals performance on Good Vibrations (Live) by The Beach Boys, as it appears in Rock Band 3 for PlayStation 3.

This song is on the disc in all versions of Rock Band 3.

As is typical for my videos, the original vocals by The Beach Boys are minimized so you can (mostly) hear what I'm singing.

This video requested by ToymasheenSH.


I wanted to see just how well the new engine handles vocal output from the player, so I turned up my sensitivity on my PS3 and mic volume in-game to maximum... and the results (as you will see and hear) leave a lot to be desired.

I sing the entire song in its original pitches; you can barely even hear me when I go low for some reason. Ditto for talkies. There's also a short burst of some weird static that shows up about halfway into the video. To even get this much volume on my vocals I had to use two microphones simultaneously.

Overall, I'm dissatisfied by the player's vocal quality in Rock Band 3. In the future I'll be doing my usual of recording external audio and mixing it back into the game audio myself.

As for technical difficulty, this song is arguably the most difficult song to perform in Rock Band vocals, period. It's REALLY tough, and definitely deserves its devil-tiered vocals rating because there's weird melodies and harmonies everywhere, and you're covering for several different singers - often one right after another.

I may come back and annotate this video with tips to help people get past this song, as there are so many strange melodies that you can't hear very well but are asked to sing.
