I play guitar in a (pretty damn good band check my site) and can tell you this right now.. Guitar hero hasn't tought me anything. It's simon with better sounds. 5 buttons, in a line, on a plastic guitar doesn't cut it for me.

Now, there is a new device coming out with little shapes and stars and such and they're placed all over the frets, with 12 bars... and full octave useage to boot. That might be something to look into. Guitar hero is a passing good time. As I said, it's memory match/Simon for the pop culture kids.

Same with the chiefs, we better get an O line this draft

dachiefsman3854d ago

Hope 1st pick will be Long....

That's jacked.

And guys, our first pick needs to be a new head coach! (and GM) Both can be found in Bill 2009. You heard it here FIRST!!!

Jesus christ people, let this whole Guitar Hero vs Real Guitar thing die already. Guitar Hero is a VIDEO GAME meant for FUNNNNNNNNNNNN. Not to be compared to real rock or whatever.

Guitar Hero doesn't teach you guitar......

But Halo, and any other shooter teach you violence and gun handling?
