so i was on youtube watching stuff and my bro's like ZOMG WATCH GUITAR HERO VIDEOZ!!!11! I'm like alright w/e just stfu. Anywho, this kid is really good at guitar hero. But what surprised me more was the comments people left about how amazing it is. I think it's dumb to support someone in playing fake guitar like all the other people have.

So the question is:
Does he rock or is he a waste of life?
#2
well, it's not a waste of life, he just has a lot of free time..... so he basically has NO life.......

His 9, so his life being judged as a waste is what I would say 'retarded'

Why can't we just let the kid have fun?

Exactly. He's 9 ffs.

EDIT: To guy below me...

He's fucking 9 years old!

#10
He is really really good, and that tapping thing he does at the beginning is cool, but still, waste of life.

Ya, he's right^

The kid probably just doesn't have a life and spends all of his time GH

Like...I'm guessing at least 50% of the musicians here spend all their time playing real guitar.....like me

Cause he is not allowed to have fun.
#14
He is awesome!!
...but I play Guitar Hero with the normal Analog controller on PS2...
#15
i play both, i have some ok skills with gh, and i have some ok skills with guitar, i can respect them both, i think its weird that your so closed minded about this, its getting people re-involved with rock music again, so i dont see a down side to guitar hero.
#17
He's just a kid. You don't to judge him. =/

Then again, if his parents don't make him stop and get him a guitar , he's gonna
have a big ego...

Excellent point, I guess waste of life is a little harsh,
but I still say he should have friends instead of playing gh3 for like 27 hours a day.
#19
He's 9. He's playing a game he enjoys.

Give me a ****ing break. Why do you people get so threatened over this kind of stuff? And the funny thing is it's always the worst guitarists/newbs that complain about other people's lack of skill or bitch about GH.
#20
it's crazy he learned to tap like that. and on a fake guitar.

i don't know what to decide, im kinda in between

GH is only a game, i think its a waste of time even though I have one for wii.
I hardly play it though and my bro is the one who originally wanted it...

Im sticking with real guitars


What would you guys do if someone said that guitar playing is only a game (Which they could have a very good argument for)?

Sorry, but because you listen to Tool doesn't mean you're intelligent.
#27
He has lots of free time because he's only nine, when I was nine me and my friend TRIED to get homework but we never did. If he could play guitar hero that good at age nine he'd probably have a lot of friends.

For the love of god, enough with the fucking GH threads. P L E A S E

"Most of you say "get a real guitar" probably just because you could never play like this kid, he is awesome"

Quote from that interview with the kid...."I don't really put my hands on the buttons, I just push them." WTF does that mean?

Guitar Hero isn't that bad, I hate how everyone criticises it. It can be good for your timing, is good timing a bad thing?

Why can't more people be like this guy?

I personally have had my life ruined by video games. First it was basic games, then online console games, then all-out MMO addiction for 2 years, I wasted about 4 years of my life. No telling how much better I could be at real guitar if I had spent time on it then. You guys can argue that he is just having fun or whatever but at the rate he is going, he might end up in the same situation as me and have to look back at a wasted life, and trust me, it is not fun.

Besides no one honestly gives two ****s how fast you can press plastic buttons.

Actually if you have no concept of rhythm and time measurement in music, it won't help you at all. And real guitar helps with timing too.

Hehe, same for me. It was just basic video games, then Halo 2 for a year, then Halo 2 Xbox Live for a year, then Runescape for a year, then WoW for about a year and a half solid. I slowed down last spring break, started up a bit in the summer, slowed down during the school year and have ultimately quit by now.
