    Sure, here is how I play my bard.

    Shift+1, Shift+2, Shift+3, Shift+4, Shift+5, 2, 2, Shift+Q, R, 2, 2, Shift+E, 2, 2, 5, 2, 2, 5, Shift+1, Shift+2, Shift+3, Shift+4, Shift+5, 2, 2, 5, 2, 2, 5, 2, 2, 5, 2, 2, 5...........

    If needed I will hit Mouse5. R has a longer cooldown so that is why it isn't seen in the second part above. Re-apply Shift+Q and Shift+E when needed.

    Keep motifs always UP! Cadence for 3 CP's then power chord then finisher, on bosses use the 2 debuff finishers then either a heal or DPS finisher. For trash just use AOE finisher.

    Cant stress enough on keeping buffs up. Pop CD's when needed.

    What they are basically saying is your rotation will be a bit of a priority system.

    Is Anthem Up?
    -- Yes, Move on
    -- No, put anthem up stupid
    Is Fanfare up?
    -- Yes, Move on
    -- No, Why are you here put that up.
    Is Motifs up?
    -- Yes, Move on
    -- No, Is tank dieing?
    ----- Yes, Hit Motif Regen immediately if not up
    ------------ Do you have Rift?
    ----------------Yes, Rift, Coda of Restoration
    ---------------- No, How about Power Chord?
    -------------------- Yes, Cadence, Power Chord, Coda of Restoration
    -------------------- No, Cadence, Cadence (cut short), Coda of Restoration
    ------ No, Put motifs up
    Main Rotation
    --- Cadence
    --- Cadence (cut short at 1 seconds for 2 cp)
    --- Finisher
    ------ Debuff Needed? Use your debuffs
    ------ Healing Needed? Use Restoration
    ------ More then 3 mobs? Use AoE
    ------ Less then 3 Mobs? Single target


    That is pretty much a bards gameplay.

    Default Bard play

    Relanex basically put it all down, I have a bit different soul list than he does and I use bard/saboteur and blow the mobs up while keeping up my songs and base buffs.. oh ahh uhh anthems, motif, fainfair, cndance.. *smile*

    My only issue is getting a macro to play 5 button pushes
