So, I saw this thread:
http://ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=967151

And I thought about something. I've been playing guitar for about two and a half years, but have always had a hard time with singing and playing at the same time. Do you guys think that If i got guitar hero, set up the mic and guitar, and tried it out, would I be able to learn how to sing and play from this?

you get better at something by doing it

play guitar whilst singing => you will get better at playing guitar whilst singing

It will teach you coordination and pitches, but it will in no way improve your playing. And for God's sake, get Rock Band.

instead of using guitar hero, why don't you just use a real guitar and a real mic?

Well I don't know about solos but how about that Smoke on the Water riff. It's like...impossible.

No you'll get better at pressing 5 buttons and singing.

This'll make it harder to sing and fret individual strings.

Jedit: Apologies. I thought you were talking about GH.

Yes you are right.

I think hes trying to say it would help with his coordination, but don't bother forking out for it, just learn a song on guitar and lyrics seperately and practise together.

you speak amazingly truthfully!

No, it wouldn't help because you can see the notes you're playing on screen. This really does nothing for your real guitar playing.

No it will not help because you will have to focus on looking at the screen so you cannot focus on singing the right lyrics. Try learning some easy guitar songs and sing to them, then learn harder songs later.

But seriously, no.
Play REAL guitar, and practice REALLY singing, and you'll be good at playing guitar and singing.

Practice playing Guitar Hero, and Singing at the same time, then.. well, you'll be good at Guitar Hero.
Take your pick (no pun intended).
