I bought my guitar to school, and of course, people were amazed, since none of them really played guitar. It actually helped me, because I can get really nervous about playing in front of people, but it really helped me. After school, I had EVERYONE around me, and now, I don't think I'm nervous about playing a gig anymore. BUT...

All day I was asked if I could play things from Guitar Hero. WTF. I hate that game. It's a disgrace to guitarists.

I haven't even heard the song "Six" by As I Lay Dying or whoever did that, but I already hate the song. I got around 10-15 requests for that song.

It's just a rhythm game. A lot of the songs on it are famous any way so a lot of people would probably have known them before playing the game. Just enjoy the attention!

You're..

Other than that I agree. Don't bring your guitar to school to show off. You'll look like an idiot.

Well, I had just bought a little mini amp, and I thought I'd take it to school since we were doing nothing all day.

I hate how we're judged by if we can play something from Guitar Hero. There are millions of great songs. They're not all on Guitar Hero.

its a fun game, get over it. at least its getting some more people into rock music and interesting them in guitar.

He didn't bring it to just show off necessarily, he might of just wanted to get used to playing in front of people. The way people talk of that game can get a little annoying, but, it's just a game dude. A fun game imo.

This noob, he just started playing guitar like 2 months ago, he can play (mediocrely) some songs from guitar hero, and he thinks he owns me because he can play fing songs from guitar hero LOL.

It's one thing if you actually have a real reason for you to bring it. If you just bring your guitar to play in front of your class and buddies you're on the bottom of the sea.

All That Remains are awesome.

On a side note, I bring my guitar to school every tuesday because my awesome drafting teacher started a music club. However, I'm not dumb enough to try to use it to get attention, because, for one, that's stupid, and two, there are three guys I know at school who could own my face off at guitar.

Six is a decent song, Guitar Hero is a great game, you are the problem here TS. -_-

Well, I could play Ziggy Stardust, Sharp Dressed Man, Spanish Castle Magic and a few others prior to the game being released and to be honest I don't mind being asked if I can play songs from the games because they have some excellent tunes on them. If a video game can get kids listening to and wanting to hear Stevie Ray Vaughan, Rush, or Eric Johnson, what the hell is the problem?

It's by all that remains and is a tunne mate. Their guitar parts are pretty sweet. And it's just the way it is, i brought mine in coz I had to do a presentation on modes and while I was practicing all they asked me was "can you play sweet child o mine?" or "play voodoo child" so I did and they then left me alone.

TBH I'm with you kinda, I hate the way people think you're a good guitarist if you can play songs they know, for instance they all think this guy is amazing coz he can play razorlight, knows no real theory or anything but because they know it, "he's amazing". Let people be naiive and just play whatever, impressing people should be a by-product of playing, not a reason to play.

BTW Guitar hero is wicked game.

Also, Guitar Hero is great fun. it's not supposed to be like playing guitar. It's designed so that people who can't play guitar can have a go and play some awesome songs. I'd love to get GH3, only have GH2.
#35
well you gotta realize that guitar hero is the closest most people get to anything related to a guitar, it doesn't dominate their life like it does for most of us. it's not like they really care whether or not you find it disgraceful.

Guitarhero is a fun game. No matter what anyone says. I don't like when people say they can play guitar BECAUSE of guitarhero, but it's a game, and it's fun nonetheless.

How is it a disgrace? So racing video games (Gran Turismo etc.) are a disgrace to real driving? Relax buddy, its a game. Made for people's enjoyment. its not actually meant to be the real thing.
Be cool.
