Trying to master Surf Hell is driving me nuts. The chords in the chorus register inconsistently, but what's maddening is that even though I'm playing them, the game doesn't recognize them and then drops my phrase level!
It's bad enough not to get the points, but that means I can't master the song no matter what I score, because the section's no longer maxed.
I've taken to just restarting the song when I see the "phrase level down," but I haven't been able to get over 100,000 points yet.
This is the kind of frustrating thing that makes me want to throw the game in the trash. There doesn't seem to be any logic to when it recognizes a chord and when it doesn't, and the whole dropping a phrase level is feeling really arbitrary.
