Anyone else have problems with the Harmonically Challenged Game?

At first I thought it was me, then I thought it might be my guitars. I just couldn't get past the second level.

Last night I took my laptop to my guitar teacher and had her try. She plugged her Martin in and gave it a try. She couldn't get past the second level either.

She's got over 50 years experience playing the guitar and gives lessons to other instructors, if she can't win that game, it can't be won by legitimate means, or so I thought, so I looked it up.

A quick search on google located a bunch of people giving cheats for the game, but no one actually talking about ever making it past the second level without cheating. I'm sure there is someone out there who has done it, but this guitarcade game just isn't playable.

I just looked it up, it looks so complicated. I'd rather just play guitar like noobs do.

Minor gripe, why does the cover of the game have an Epiphone Les Paul on it? I mean, that's not exactly setting their sights high. Shouldn't they have used some godly guitar that represents all that is rock and roll? But no, they use the guitar mostly played by 15 year olds at high school talent shows...

But other than that, it looks cool. I may try it one of these days.

Because Epiphone sponsored it.

Well then, that would just about explain it, wouldn't it?

Question: is there anything special about this cable that means you have to buy it, or will any old guitar-to-USB-majig suffice?

I have some questions regarding this game:

Are there any songs that require you to tune in real life?

Can you play bass with your fingers?

Thanks

I dont really game much, I mean I don't even own a system, but I bought this for my nephew for his eleventh birthday, because he wants to learn guitar.

He hasn't touched it not once too busy with Borderlands 2 or something. Me on the other hand I can't get enough of it, I play it every time I go over there. The riff acelerator is really brilliant stuff.

I don't care for this game at all myself. Based on what I've seen my friend play it just seems for the typical bedroom tab-reading shredder. I barely learn music anymore, and when I do it's all by ear. I can't stand using tabs.


What I did find funny was that the amp modeling sounded significantly more realistic than a Line 6 Spider. Not something I'd record with, but surprising, considering the game alone is $40.

Then again, Poulin plugins + impulses are free.

Well it's $60 without the guitar input to USB cable (not microUSB; I fudged up), but my PS3 didn't come with the component cables

Well, there's no shredding in it, and regardless of whether or not you prefer to learn all music by ear, there's a whole bunch of songs on there you could learn.

Regardless of skill level, learning new songs can help anyone get better at guitar, whether it's with technique or composition, because at least one will have more ideas from other musicians to vary up his or her songwriting. It's silly to think because you play in a band you couldn't improve by playing the game.

Most of the songs aren't even that hard or shreddy, only the DLC has incredibly hard songs. Also, it teaches you chords, scales, and modes.

I have looked into it. Looks pretty good. Just noticed there is DLC, some very good stuff available. Hangar 18 would drive me nuts though, I am not good enough to play that accurately. I'd definitely get freebird and we're not gonna take it.

I've only been playing for 11 months and I have to say that the best part of this is the Guitarcade.

It takes something tedious, like memorizing the fret positions, and makes a game out of it.

Dawn of the Chorded is great, it picks up on what you know how to do well and moves you to chords you haven't had to deal with teaching you to transition quickly.

The baseball game is just fun, but it teaches you to find any fret on any string automatically and even thrown in bends to keep you on your toes.

The songs are really secondary.
