Guitar Hero 2
The new features are fantastic (practice mode, cooperative multiplayer), and there are some excellent songs in this version, but the game doesn’t jell the way the first one did. I am glad I’ve got a new plastic guitar to replace my old one — the whammy bar had broken off and the strum bar was getting a little flimsy.
Can you actually learn how to play guitar using that… “thing”?
I’m genuinely curious.
Learn how? God, no. After all, DDR can’t teach you how to dance. But they do a good enough job of simulating the guitar experience that the stuff one would pick up from playing an actual guitar (hammer-ons, pull-offs, strumming rhythm, etc.) comes in handy.
The Wall Street Journal did an article recently on professional musicians who play Guitar Hero in their spare time.
Really?! I’d love to read that. Some musicians are …weird!
