All of my friends who are pretty good at Guitar Hero cannot for the life of them play the fast tremolo-picked pedal-note licks. And I, who have hardly ever played the game (I don't even own an Xbox), can totally dominate those fast picking lines (e.g. Thunderhorse and Misirlou on Expert).

It's funny to me that non-guitarist Guitar Hero players just rely on down-picking their thumb on that measly piece of plastic even when they could cut their efforts in half with simple alternate picking.

I call on BS, since there's no connection between real guitar and GH.

Though if it's true, then congratulations.

Eh... I'd have no reason to lie about something as silly as this to The Pit. My picking motion is the same between guitar hero and real guitar. My wrist moves in the same way, using the same muscles. How is there not a connection?

this is true.
I have also tried using a pick but it wears down the plastic haha.

I also alt pick when I play GH.

I still say mastering the real guitar doesn't help too much with guitar hero, it didn't work for Dave Mustaine.

That's not what I implied. All I'm saying is that I can dominate my Guitar Hero friends in the fast picking licks because I transferred my alternate picking technique from real guitar. They can still beat me at everything else.

ive noticed that a lot of people only downpick on guitar hero.

i dont understand it. its practically designed so that you alternate pick, yet a lot of people dont.

I 'downpick' for most of the time, but I 'alternate pick' on the fast lines...
I can downpick somewhat quickly.

that's how I do it and i'm pretty nasty at GH.

Yeah I 'alternate pick' when I play GH. Also I lol when my friends get sore picking hand wrists.

That's because GH only has to do with hand eye coordination



Uh, real guitar has to do with that too. Os no, GH has no bearing on anything.

Though a friend of mine says fapping helped his GH endevors.

Look at me, I can do something on real guitar, but who cares, it pays off in a VIDEO GAME!

Not really, you can play guitar with your eyes closed, can't you?

That's one of the advantages I got from already being a guitarist. Since day one of Hard mode, I was playing all alternate picking.

To be fair, there are some people that can do the same with guitar hero.


Guitar has made me worse at guitar hero because I'm an economy picker. Economy does not work in guitar hero at all.

Hahaha, my friends who play guitar hero but not real guitar strum using their entire arm and their thumb.
