No, really — it needs to die. Now.
Apparently, the blogosphere is full of Guitar Hero hacks, tips, tweaks, games, reviews, and information from people who actually think this thing is worth something. Stop it. You’re not actually playing a guitar — you’re pressing a couple of buttons and maybe learning a bit of rhythm.
If you really want to learn how to play a guitar and be a true hero, get an actual guitar, learn to strum a few actual chords, maybe even knock out a couple of licks. Learn to play some actual music — learn some creativity.
Try here for a good deal on an actual guitar — hell, you could even get an actual electric guitar with an amp for less than $200.
People who take Guitar Hero seriously are the same calibre as people who walk around with bluetooth headsets stuck in their ears — tools.
