The Guitar Hero Songbook.

"...features notes and tab from 40 hit songs from Guitar Hero 1 and 2... tunes familiar to the millions who love this game!"

Now I like Guitar Hero as much as the next guy, but does anyone else think this constitutes as "crossing a line?"

Don't know why it would be considered crossing the line, guitar hero usually has some good music.

Youve got Another Thing Comin'

if anything this will get the guitar hero lovers who "are dumbarses that should go learn real guitar" according to most people in the pit to do so.

sounds good to me

Yeah, but shouldn't you know these songs by the artist, or the album that they're from?
Is it normal to say "I learned this song because I played it on a video game"?
Sure it has good songs (what makes it a good rhythm game!) but to compile tabs of those songs into a book... because they're all on the game?

I think it is an awsome idea. I personally hate guitar hero, because it is way to hard, i think its harder than real guitar. But this might get some of those GH freaks away from the toy guitar and onto the real thing.

well i dont see any reason why in the book itself it wont say "<song title>, from the album <album title> by <artist>" sort of thing

If it inspires more GH players to try pick up the instrument and go up and shred up the Harmonic minor rather than green to orange then it's a good thing. It does however seem strange having to say "I learned this song because I saw it on a video game."

-if its Real tabs then its not a bad idea, with the guitar hero game you can go into practice mode and slow the song down, it could be helpful to anyone who plays the game and actually plays real guitar.

-it the book shows which buttons are being played where then i retract my opinion.
You are now blinking manually

Make sure to put capo on 2nd fret.

EDIT: Would this count as a tab contribution?

Wow, I checked the link. Good price, a LOT of GREAT songs, what's the problem exactly?

Personally, I'm with te "I think it's great" group. People complaining about having "learned it because it was on a video game" are being silly, in my opinion. Yes, it's a video game, but many video games have really good music on them. Are you saying you've never gone and looked up an artist or song because you heard something playing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 or NBA Live '06? I know I have. I'm not ashamed.

Everybody hears about different songs in different ways. Video games are a perfect medium for that.

Seems a good enough idea to me, it's a nice selection of song's. Why can't a tab book be released with a nice selection of dongs to learn?

Although I'm now popping off to google to see if I can find any actual guitar hero tabs, anyone else tried to play through the fire and the flames on expert!?!
#20
I think this is a brilliant idea. Especially since Guitar Hero's song progression goes from easy to hard(er), so beginners should find it quite useful and fun.

Mastering your instrument is being able to play whatever you hear in your head, unhindered by inadequate technique. After that, it's all about what you've got to say, so there would be no "best," just a bunch of people saying exactly what they mean.

sorry

They have those, actually. If you look through the GH strategy guide it does that.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Oh, I thought they were going to make tabs for the remote controller.
