I recently stumbled upon this new game that will be coming out later this year. It's very similar to guitar hero, but it is played with a real guitar and teaches you how to play real guitar.

http://www.guitarrising.com/index.html

I was wondering if you think that this will be worth buying for a beginner? And does appeal to you experienced players?

I think i will buy this to help me speed up my playing and for the fun of it.

Now that's more like it. Playing a game while also learning a real guitar

I've always seen the hard and expert mode of guitar hero as stupid. Why put so much effort in to pushing buttons on a plastic guitar when that time can be spent playing a real guitar?

Old topic, but none the less, i like the idea.


The Gear I Use Most:
Gibson guitars, Les Paul, ES-335, SG and more.
Dunlop Crybaby | Dunlop Volume | Boss TU-2 | Ibanez TS-9 | Maxon AD-999
Planet Waves Custom Leads
Marshall JCM900 (model: 4100 + 4101)

OK. Sorry for posting it again, i just found about it today. :\

I'm not a huge fan of Guitar Hero/Rock Band, but that looks very cool.

it will be good, but i can see alot of guitar hero noobs wave 2. People will learn the guitar to show off, and not actually learn any theory just finger movements. Anyway thats my two "pence" not bucks

yeah, but using that logic, you should tell someone playing a football game to go outside and really throw a touchdown pass.

thats just a fun game.

I dont see how the difficulty setting can be changed on songs. Like surely its just rhythm and lead. Your playing a real guitar so surely there's only one tab for each of the parts.

I think it looks cool, but imo it just means that there will be more kids running around in my school saying they can play guitar.

Hopefully they won't have guitars, and their parents will say "Naw buy guitar hero 3 instead it's better"

Another boom of wannabe showoff guitarists will arrive with this game! xD

As if guitar wasn't popular enough anyway.. can't they make a bass version of the game, maybe there will be more bassists then

Performance Mode on GH is worse. You have to memorize the song on expert. Sadly, I can do it for one song, even though I don't, and never have, owned the game. : (

I think this new game seems kind of pointless, isn't Guitar Pro just like that?

Thats what I was thinking, except guitar pro isn't a game you plug your guitar into, they should add that function ability ey, haha

This is actually pretty stupid, great idea but the trailer adverts 30 songs, if they don't get any good Zep, GnR, Metallica, Sabbath, etc then it's not even worth getting I don't want to play indie **** (well some of it is good).

God I hope this doesn't become popular, there are enough guitarists already...but if it was bass...I could use a bassist. Or maybe a drummer or singer, though I don't see how this would work any better for those than Rock Band.
