Has anyone here tried? Dude, I never thought it would be so hard! I sucked.  Sad It's much easier to play on a real guitar, but I can't explain why.

Maybe it's because the guitarist's mind tries to use the learned mechanics on the game since it's a similar enviroment (or looks/kind feels like that).

I don't own that game (since I don't own a PS2... nor am I willing to pay 80€ for a Guitar-Game when I can get me some gimmicks for my real guitar if I save a little more money),
but I guess it's a different feeling...
Because... well, it's not the real thing!

You know, not every guitar player is instantly tha man when it comes to Guitar Hero, and if you own at Guitar Hero that doesn't mean that you rawk on the real instrument...


Because it's not the real thing! =D

But anyways, you still could be good at both things at the same time I guess.
So Tim, if you play guitar in RL (hate that two letters, but hell)
... I DIDN'T question your skills!  Cheesy

Ok, a few times practice did the work.  :wink: But it's still easier to play the guitar for real.
We borrowed Singstar from a friend as well. At least I beat all my friends but I guess that doesn't say much. I'm not sure I would want to battle against Tim or Alex.  Smiley

Yeah, that's exactly what makes it hard. That you shouldn't play all the notes in one song for example.

When you get to harder levels you will play every note eventually.

I also had a hard time with easy level when you8 had to skip notes to complete.

The problem is, I hate that orange button! Arrrrghh!!!  :x  :lol:

Anyway, have you tried Singstar, Tim? It feels so weird having to try to sing "It's not unusual" and other cheesy songs exactly like the artists. Causes lots of laughs.

There is a fan remake of it on PC, pretty fun stuff!
You can get it here.

One of the best things about it is the ability to import your own songs, but you need to have the guitar track seperate for it to sound good.  :wink:  :wink: Wire!

The few times I have played the ps2 version of it, I slayed. Then I went home and tried to play my guitar... I failed! hehe

I picked it up this past summer, and i absolutely love the game. I definetly agree that it's got some familiar aspects of playing a real guitar, but at the same time it's very different (i don't really play guitar, but i know the basics).

GH2 looks like it's going to be much better, in terms of song selection in my opinion.

I played guitar hero for the first time last night.  It's so fun.  Yeah it's much different than real guitar.  And the orange button is quite difficult for me at this point.  But I think I improved alot since last night.  I could do Cowboys from Hell on Hard now.  Cheesy   I wanna learn how to do all the songs on Expert! Cool

Oh, it's fun alright! ^

Guitar Hero 2 is out now! If you have 2 guitars, you can play guitar and bass with a friend in multiplayer mode.

And it has better selection of songs too, I think.  Anthrax, Megadeth, Primus, Buckethead, Suicidal Tendencies.  :shock:   I want to play......

Of course Harmonix won´t listen to requests in their forums. But if there is the SLIGHTEST chance someone amongst them discovers "Little Mac´s Confession" and wants it in GHIII`s playlist...

HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE?

Brew78, a Game Over fan, has made a thread on their forum, so if anyone wants to add comments, it can´t hurt at least. http://forum.guitarherogame.com/Default.aspx?g=posts&t=13413

Ah! Cool to see that someone thought about us! Thanks a lot for posting the link.

One question though: Who should try to impersonate Tim? That guy is going to have a tough time!  :wink:
