Not really. I mean, I guess it can help some. I first picked up guitar a couple months after I got Guitar Hero (which was like January or so of last year), and it really didn't help much at all when I started guitar. I guess it can help with finger coordination some, but it won't help with speed or anything.

I wouldn't rely on a Guitar Hero for anything to improve your guitar playing skills, because they're two totally different things.

how to make your fingers faster, an explanation by unplugtheradio:

step 1. Get a hand...you may have been born with one. You may have even been born with two. If you weren't born with one then obviously you angered god at some point in the past. You have more important problems than digit training. Either way, you only need one for this excercise.

step 2. Get a knife. Make sure mommy and daddy don't notice you taking it to your room. If they notice it just tell them that you're playing Guantanamo-A-Go-Go with the neighborhood Arab. She'll be so busy calling her congressman and local media with stories of her little patriotic hero at home that she'll leave you alone.

step 3. Spread hand out on desk. You will notice the hand makes a splendid target. Try to stab the areas inbetween your fingers. Don't worry if you hit or miss, either way your fingers will get much leaner.

step 4. Have fun, don't do drugs, don't litter, say excuse you, salute the flag, and kill a commie.

Yeah if your guitar had computer keys instead of strings and frets.

i have a friend, who is awesome at guitar. he can play the most awesome solos and already is in a band. he has a Satch Signiture and gibson les paul. when he played guitar hero, he sucked. he told me that the frets felt wrong. if you did get faster, you probably would only be used to five frets, all on one string, so that won't help much.

In the mighty words of Borat: Step 4 is the best


But I doubt hitting giant playskool-esque buttons will make you faster at guitar

step 2: brace your self

step 3: move hand 1 forward and back very quickly

Maybe with coordination and rythm, but I think actually playing guitar would help a lot more.

agreed....prolly would help a lil more with bass than anything....
