So, I bet theres been topics before, but the search button isnt working and i cant find any.

Since I have pretty good technique on real guitar i find guitar hero a bitch to play, and i cannot even play medium properly.... Fellow guitarists, are we doomed just because we play "the real thing", or am i just really screwed up?? (prepares fire-wall for flaming.....)

No idea why this is for people. My roommate bought it so I thought what the hell. I beat Medium by playing each song once and winging it. I beat hard the same way save like 3 songs. I am on group 7 on expert. I hardly ever play, the only times I play are when my roommate goes, "Ya wanna play?" or when we're having a party. Hell, I played it left handed on Medium on some song and beat it.

I much prefer real guitar, though, and I find Guitar Hero to be a waste of time. It kinda bothers me that my roommate is trying to use guitar terms now. Bleh. Ah well, spreads good music. I guess.

People seem to think that Guitar Skills = Guitar Hero Skills.

The thing is that they should be considered two completely different instruments. Although the game is about guitar they're different and nothing alike. Want to be good at guitar? Practice with a real guitar. Want to be good at Guitar Hero? Practice on Guitar Hero not a real guitar.

Yeah every time I play it now im worse because i try to vibrato the buttons and i always mess it up.

It is because guitar != guitar hero. They are two completely different things. Like for one most people memorize guitar parts instead of always looking at them. Plus timing on guitar hero is exact while playing guitar if your off a little bit normally it is not a huge deal and you can compensate for it. Plus since you play real guitar your mind is probably in the mode to try and hit different notes instead of only five of them plus the smaller controller probably does not help. Although playing real guitar most likely helps when you are trying to get timings right and picking it up quicker, so the learning curve might be nicer than for someone who plays no instruments at all.

You should check out the new south park episode, Guitar Queer-o. Are we allowed to post links to streaming sites here?

No bends, no vibratos, no pinch harmonics, no sweep picking, no tapping, no slides, no palm muting!

Needless to say I majorly screw up when trying any of those on GH. I can't help it, I just do stuff without thinking about it.

We must start a Jihad against Guitar Hero....... Its making people that didnt play guitar that used words like "shred" or "rocking" into even bigger dicks cause of Guitar Hero.

So yeah its making dicks into big hard dicks

Confusing, huh?

It's just a game,
I don't expect to be able to pick up Halo 3 or Gears of War start playing the game without losing a few times, why should this be different?
I mean, Gun Enthusiasts find it hard using a Gun at Gaming Arcades straight off because they are completely different...

Just accept that you won't always be good at something straight off...
and to those who are complaining about it, no-one's forcing you to play it, Or even take the people who do seriously when they use guitarist terms.
At least it features decent songs, Rather than Rapp or Pop songs which are dominating the mainstream.

I play on expert... but I play it quite a bit with my friends and family.

At first I sucked but I got better after playing it a while.

I'm now stuck on the part of GH3 where the songs are Stricken and 3's and 7's. That's damn tough.

We were never saying it sucked, we said we can't play it. Calm down.
#26
I don't get why it's so hard for guitar players to get used to playing this game. IT IS NOT MEANT TO BE A GUITAR SIMULATOR! It's just a fun music/rhythm game. You are not playing a guitar, you are playing a piece of plastic with 5 buttons on it. And honestly, I've never met or seen anybody who thinks they're really cool because they're good at Guitar Hero.

Maybe because guitar hero sucks?

I'm not too angry, this is just 1 too many threads where people are complaining because they can't adapt.
Also people were saying it sucked...
Let's Create a Jihad Against it?
That sounds like they were saying it sucked eh?

EDIT:
Look above this post.
Wow?
That surely shows intolerance to anything that poses some difficulty.
I found it quite easy, maybe it's because you people have Rhythm and Timing issues?

Well, the difference is you aren't making threads because you can't play it.
There is a thread like this every god damned day with people who start complaining about how they can't play it straight out of the box.

Well to get off this stupid argument, I find it relaly funny that I suck at easy because it goes too slow and medium too for the same reason. I play in hard and do somewhat decent but the last button pisses me off.

I agree that it's totally different, but there is a little tapping on Jordan I believe.

In my opinion this game is great,
But it's sorta hard to do pinch harmonics and sweeping and slides with 5 big plastic colorful buttons.
It's meant to just be fun, not a simulator.

YESSSS!!! PEOPLE THAT UNDERSTAND!!

i play guitar, and everyone knows i play guitar, so thus everyone expects to be good at guitar hero but im not. at all.

i keep wanting to add extra **** that they dont put in the game, such as on gh2 when they had killin in the name of. tom morello puts palm muted **** in there that they didnt put on the game, even on expert and it makes me mad.

I haven't found much of a correlation between the game and my actual playing. Then again I've only played it a few times. It's a video game like any other, and I've done decent. I'm sure it's just a matter of practice.

Did not read a lot of the posts after mine, but to whoever made the comment, I tried to vibrato and bend the buttons sometimes, too xD.

Besides, 5 frets vs. 144 frets. I think it's easy to determine which one is harder. It's just a game, meh. I used to loathe it to the core, but hell, it's a fun party game and a blast when you're drunk.

I'm stuck on Before I Forget--the only one left in group 7--on Expert. I just said screw it and went and played guitar. It's really not that addicting (to me). My roommate couldn't put it down for a week straight (or more) since we got it. -_-

Oh, and Guitar Queer-o was golden

The thing is, I've never met ANYONE outside this site that thinks they kick ass at guitar because they're good at GH. Though maybe that's because I don't hang around with pre-teen idiots.
