Fender Rock Band 3 guitar

Have you graduated through all of the "Rock Band" difficulty levels and need something a little more demanding to challenge your fingers? Well, Fender has decided to blur the line between instrument and music game controller once and for all and devise a new Squier guitar that serves as a fully functional instrument while plugged into an amp or a game console. And best off all for aspiring musician/gamers, it requires you to actually play the music, so your skills will translate from "Rock Band 3" directly to the stage.

"Rock Band 3" launches tomorrow, so many of the reporters here have been polling celebrities to determine which of them has the ability to take on Dio's "Rainbow In The Dark" on Expert (among other feats). We expect bands like "All Time Low" to have experience with the "Rock Band" franchise, but every once in a while we get someone that we never would've guessed is a fan of the series. Surprise fan of the day? None other than Martha Stewart.

The Doors

The Doors were one of the first bands that came to mind for a lot of us as soon as keyboards were revealed to be a part of "Rockband 3." In fact, the Ray Manzarek fans among us wondered not only if the keyboardist's band would be included, but how many of their tracks would make the cut. The group appeared on the full track list for the new game, and today the "Rock Band 3" team announced that Jim Morrison and company would also get to be featured in the first batch of DLC after the game ships on October 26.

Rock Band 3

When "Rock Band 3" brings its keyboards to stores on October 26, it's going to be loaded with songs from rockers around the world, not just the U.S. Most of the newly announced songs from acts like Bob Marley & The Wailers, INXS, Tokio Hotel and Rammstein will be familiar to North American audiences, but MTV Games confirmed the selections at GamesCom this week as part of an 83-song on-disc soundtrack that they hope will attract global attention.

Rock Band 3

It may not seem like it, but by the time "Rock Band 3" comes out, it will have been more than three years since the last true "Rock Band" sequel. Of course, in that time, we've seen a handful of "Rock Band" spin-offs like "Beatles: Rock Band" and "Lego: Rock Band," but not a true overhaul. Enter "Rock Band 3," which introduces a new instrument (the keyboard) and new modes which are designed to help folks learn how to play real-world guitars, drums and keyboards. "Rock Band 3" is scheduled for release on October 26, 2010 for PS3, 360, Wii and DS.

Deftones Rock Band 3

GameStop listings for "Rock Band 3" show off a few additional tracks that you'll be able to get on a voucher for pre-ordering there, and if tinkling the ivories on the new "Rock Band 3" keyboard is your thing, you'll definitely find a few notes to play in them.

The Deftones track "My Own Summer," New Order's "Blue Monday" and The Talking Heads' "Burning Down The House" will all be included in that package, according to GameStop.ca, though strangely enough the same deal is not listed on GameStop.com.

Rock Band 3 keyboards

You won't get all of the tracks from "Green Day: Rock Band" in the demo that recently became available on Xbox Live, but you will get a provocative teaser image when you end your jam sessions. The "Rock Band 3" screen that appears includes a row of unsurprising icons like harmony-indicative microphones, two guitars and drums, but those veteran instruments are punctuated by some piano keys, which should have all the wannabe Elton Johns and Ray Manzareks out there very eager to see which bands are represented in the new game.
