will the new guitar hero recording feature stop people learning the real thing?

i'm sure most of aware of the new guitar hero game (world tour) and it has a new feature which allows you to record your own songs and share them etc. i enjoy guitar hero games, but there are many people who will not bother learning the real thing because the game is easier and now you can make your own songs (which is gonna be easier on the game).

thankfully the quality of sound of these recordings isnt very good. but i have no doubt it will improve.
people will be like "why should i learn guitar and take time to bcome good and write songs when i can play guitar hero and be good in 10 mins and record and share my songs"

so will it cause less people to bother with the real thing? obviously it will never stop people altogether from learning the real thing.
remember kids, you can't spell bass without ass

No.

It's not even going to be that easy to make your own songs on GH, especially if you don't really know any musical theory. It's probably easier to pick up three or four chords on a real guitar and make a couple of simple songs if you really want to.

I don't get it. How can you record your own songs with 5 'frets' and one 'string?'

I found the recording function very difficult to use. If you have no guitar experience whatsoever you will have no idea what scales to set and what power/major chords to use. Your solos will sound like shit also. It's a great idea, but i dont think it was ready yet

I'd actually like to see that. Watch Metallica fail on rock band on their own song and start shouting at each other:

Hetfield: "You shouldn't have used that Star Power on the interlude"
Hammet: "Yeah, well you broke the 300 note streak!"
Trujilo: *Dances like angry monkey*

Guitar Hero and Rock Band have already (imo) unmotivated a large # of kids from actually playing a real instrument. As fun as these games are I'd like to bitch slap the inventors. Being a guitar teacher I've witnessed the "Sorry I haven't practiced this week but watch me battle Slash on Guitar Hero" at least a dozen times.
#22
Guitar Hero is just as useless as most other video games these days. Most games that are almost worth playing are just recycled ideas.

Guitar Hero is actually a very good thing; people won't learn guitar just to 'look cool' when instead they can play Guitar Hero Less idiots playing guitar = good.

Absolutely not.

I know I'd get bored in less than the 10 minutes it would take me to record such a song. Guitar's never gotten boring and probably never will.

Agreed. A bunch of kids I know or have met always pride themselves on guitar hero skills. These are the same kids that drink everynight and have random fug sluts over though, so it's not a big loss anyways.

One of my friends trying to play guitar is just pitiful. He's one of those kids that has a guitar just for show, and really, I almost feel bad. But nope, I don't. He sucks.

That's a contradiction. Does he try to play, and just hasn't got far yet, or does he have it for show?

He "plays" on it when people come over. Sometimes he just drums on it. I think it's kind of like, there for when girls come over, and whenever they ask "can you play for me?" he says "yeah next time." But when anyone asks him to play when he is drunk, it's quite hilarious. He doesn't really aspire to play I guess you can say lol.

That's still using 7 frets, you're just not playing all of them.

EDIT-6 frets and an open note. You know what I mean...

And Ukuleles are different, they fall into their own seperate section of AWESOME.

The same way you can play covers of other peoples original songs on it. It's really not that hard to understand.

I think if we're going to start pointing fingers then the internet has a lot more to answer for in terms of stopping people using their time productively than a video game does.

And the answer is no.
