If you're interested to see how Rock Band 2
and Guitar Hero: World Tour's 16 shared songs
match up to one another, look no further than YouTube. While there are certainly others (and undoubtedly more to follow suit), user Gurra100

Take note how GH:WT

set plus cymbal pack leads to glitches
Meanwhile, our Instrument Compatibility Matrix has been updated to version 3.33
and we're still working to fill in all the missing pieces; we've reached out to Activision and Harmonix for help.
