it helped me maintain my finger speed and dexterity when i broke my left arm twice and couldnt play real guitar, it was the best thing to ever happen to me then. so its great in certain ways.

It doesn't matter; if you enjoy it, play it. If you don't, don't play it. It's not going to affect your playing in any way.
Just don't go thinking you kick ass at guitar just because you're good at guitar hero... that's annoying.


Edit: I personally find it a LOT of fun, especially multiplayer with good friends... rarely gets old.

Totally agree.... I suck bad at guitar hero, but i don't care because i can play real guitar.

it sucks when you're playing on a lower difficulty and in the game you don't play every note, but you want to in real life, so you mess up. That's the only bad part about playing teh real guitar and going to play guitar hero.

Sadly enough, the more that I played GH the faster my picking got. My left hand always feels loose now, too. I love the game, personally.

i guess its ok, the newbies dont realize the talented guitarists we have on UG, when they do, theyll be much more modest...
#22
i always had trouble with my pinky finger just being able to fret with it and such. it seems to have helped. also it just built hand dexterity and strength. plus i think its great fun!

No doubt, I've always been quite modest myself, and although I'd love to be able to do more complex solos and whatnot, I'm finally accepting my fate as maybe a rhythm guitarist haha. Either that or I'll have to practice more than I'm currently able to.

You might be better than a lot of people here at UG, but I can pretty much guarentee there are many people better than you (pretty damn sure I'm not)... so just don't let your head get too big.

modesty is just polite, however. you can be good, great, decent, or bad. I think im great, but accept that others are better than me. you on the other hand, put yourself up on a pedestal, making you seem foolish, and, regardless of your talents, seem like a total douchebag.

..... i think im done here.... no sense arguing with one so blind to the true meaning of music.

It helped me with the usage of my pinky finger, lol...

I play bass so when I used to randomly play my dad's guitar I always used my fingers, but after i got good at guitar hero i was so used to doing that picking motion that i can now play guitar with a pick.

It's not gonna make you amazing or anything but Guitar hero does help with rhythm and timing etc.
