as we all know that plastic guitar shaped device with the multi coloured buttons has been around for a while now, but what impact has it made?

ok to start off im gonna go for a bad example of guitar hero influence

i was in my local music shop trying out some guitars tinkering about, so i started to play some fast runs from a malmsteen song and i noticed this kid maybe like 10 or 12 just watching, so i stopped and said hey little guy you play guitar, he was like nah im just here with my brother i play guitar hero, i was like cool atleast he likes guitar orientated music. he then went on to say that i was a decent shredder and i had potential ( he is like 10 lmao) then he asks if i can play through fire and flames so ofcourse i said hell no dragon force is the worst taste in music, then he comes out with dude i can get it 98 % accurate on expert then casually walks away then as he leaves i hear him saying to his brother that guy there sucks he doesnt even like herman li and cant even play through fire and flames....

from that day on i am against guitar hero, whats your views XD

ps the song i was playing as he was watching was far beyond the sun by malmsteen

pro
fun with friends
makes gf feel good to beat you

cons
annoying 12 yr old boys
makes searching for a youtube video slightly more difficult'
steals potential guitarists lives

Pros: Cool people either have fun playing it or are not disturbed when others play it
Cons: Musical elitists who create threads like these and bash the GAME to no end because they feel so much more superior.

And how exactly did it do either of those things? Slash always was big and rock never died, it's only idiot n00bs who say either of them ever went away...

Pros - It gives people the opportunity to make threads like these, which gives the mods plenty of banning exercise.

Cons - It makes people turn into idiots.

well lets be fair here, did you see slash on tv much or recording new stuff prior to his guitar hero song? now he is back on tv recording new material and touring off the back of guitar hero ads and that song he made,

and yeh chuckles your right it has opened a door for people to enjoy different types of music other than the pop charts

Cons: People who take it too seriously

I personally saw him on stage with Velvet Revolver in 2007, at which point he was already planning his solo album, I would say that the timing was more or less coincidental and he'd probably be doing the same with or without guitar hero.

Pros: GH is a game, hence you have fun with your friends

Cons: Unless you have no friends to play with, you will start trying to get a high score and become lonely and in your lonely, you may become an elitist.
The content of this signature is pretty much irrelevant

Pros - It introduces people to new music

Cons - Most people don't pursue that music beyond whats in the game. Example, whenever I wear a Muse shirt I always get a "Hey I like that one song by them" If it's a chick I ask if it's a guy I ask "Knights of Cydonia?" (GHIII) or lately if its a chick, "Supermassive Blackhole or I Belong to You?" (Twilight, why oh why did they have to do that? :sad

Also I'm pretty bad at it, but I haven't tried in a while.

PROS:
Is what exposed me and got me interested in Rock and Metal
Is what got me interested in Guitar (as an actual instrument)

CONS:
Scares people away by making the guitr seem complicated
It's not nearly as fun as Elcectric Guitr.
Have a good one,

Pros: Opens peoples minds to rock and metal and shows it is not "devils music".

Cons: I suck at it >:-(

Only people who get worked up about guitar hero/ rock band is that they are mad cause they are not cool / popular for playing an actual guitar.
#31
another con: It makes too many people interested in guitar...so there is a even bigger over flow of guitarist today...CAN A BROTHA FIND A GOOD BASSIST!!

It gets kids into guitar-based music.

I wouldn't be into the music I am now if it hadn't been for Guitar Hero and Rock Band.

As soon as you said Dragonforce is bad taste in music I stopped reading. Your idiocy is astounding.



As much as I would love to see the TS end up like the torso-man-thing in Johnny Got His Gun for making such a horrible thread I still have to say, Dragonforce are fucking awful.
