Guitar Hero: WT and Rock Band 2 Note Tracks, Side by Side

When the Guitar Hero World Tour track list was revealed, there were several surprises, both good and bad.  Falling into that latter category were the large number of songs that are already represented in the Rock Band franchise.  Now that both games have launched, how do the two games stack up against each other?  If only there was some way to make a direct comparison between them, say, on a song included in both games...
