How do your skills stack up to his?

KEYWORDS:
On a 360. I get dizzy watching the notes fly by. Some of them go by so fast I can't keep up with them. Watch his closing at 5:05 into it.

That isn’t a guitar and he’s not a hero.

Don’t be a stick in the mud. It’s very popular. My son tried to get me into it but it isn’t for me.

Isn’t this song about a fiddle player?

Yes it is, if you want to get technical. ‘Guitar’ Hero III doesn’t have fiddles.

I had never heard of the song until I heard Jason Smith on ESPN radio "All Night" complaining that some kid posted that on youtube, then he played part of the song. After hearing it I had to go look.

I'd love to try the game, but the game and all that goes with it don't fit into my budget right now.

I’m sorry, but as a retired “lounge musician” I find this performance, while very titillating and excitng, a little disturbing.

Can’t explain. Too old, I guess.

My son fluctuates between 88 and 91 on Through the Fire and Flames.

I tried it, I just don't care for it. I like shoot-up games. lol

That’s ok, I just buried my face in my hands. I’d have stopped it but it was only 17 seconds long. I just rode it out. :)

My son has a vintage Gibson s-1 and a Fender Strat. He spends his days playing push button guitar hero.

Fantastic guitars.

There's just something about it that can't help themselves I guess.

I wonder how well an Atari 2600 could do that style of game. With the right programming, the music might almost be workable. Not sure what to do for the controller. Maybe the game would be playable with a joystick. Not sure if it would be worth the effort to code, though.

My son owns a vintage 1965 Vox Bobcat and a Gibson SG and he too plays Guitar Hero and Rock Band constantly.

Although I must admit he is very good on both.

Kinda chuckling a bit ...

My own experience has been that actually having experience playing an instrument is a detriment to playing Guitar Hero. But full disclosure, after 5 minutes of GH, I’m thinking ‘I could pick up an actual instrument’.

My digitech rp3 has a play along feature ... plug in the iPod and off I go.

It depends on how long and how well you play the real instruments. Both of my now young-adult kids played in the shool orchestra from 3rd through 12th grade. They have an intuitive sense of rhythm, phenomenal hand-eye coordination, and even an understanding of song structure.

Wow... I played piano for at least 12 years by now, and I’m learning acoustic guitar, and while I have a great understanding of theory and song structure and all that, I completely lack any sense of rhythm or hand-eye coordination (or any coordination at all), so Guitar Hero is sort of like learning an entirely new instrument for me. However, my siblings who do have things like coordination and a sense of rhythm, are absolutely great at it.
