  1. I stayed up too late last night playing this game, but that's hardly noteworthy these days. I finally finished the game on hard. My next challenge is to tackle Through The Fire And Flames, and then hopefully finish up expert (done 33 of 42 songs so far).

      Guitar Hero is NOT a game for guitar players.

      True. Vocals is vocals, exactly the same as you would in a real band. Drums is almost the same, except you're playing on a mock set with the drums in more manageable positions than real ones. The guitars have nothing to do with actual guitar playing, and the only skill that will bleed over is timing really. I end up pressing down to hard on the buttons like they were real guitar strings, which ends up cramping my fingers very quickly. At least the guitars in this are easier to manipulate than the GH ones. Also, playing fake guitar just makes me wish I were playing real guitar which is insanely frustrating, especially when your guitar is like 5 feet away from you as it was the other night. :P

      I wouldn't say exactly; I know a lot of the time you can get away with just humming the tune for the vocals if you don't know the words and still get 5 stars. :P But still, I guess if you can hit the right notes, then I guess it still counts for something.

      Drums are my favorite instrument to play in Rock Band. While they're more accurate to the real instrument than guitar, I wouldn't say the game is at all useful in teaching people how to play the actual instrument. I've seen plenty of people playing on drums who are actually good at the drums. You can usually tell by the quality of the person's drum fills. :P I can beat a large chunk of the songs on drums on expert, but if you sat me down in front of a real drum kit I'd probably be a little intimidated. :P

      EDIT: Oh, but this $300 drum kit that works with Rock Band looks pretty neat.

      EDIT2: While I'm at it.. anyone have Rock Band 2 for the 360? If so, how 'bout some gamertags, eh? Mine's *gasp* AgentSpork. Even if you don't have Rock Band 2, some gamertags would be pretty rad. I mostly play Rock Band 1/2 and Guitar Hero III online, with an occasional game of Halo 3 every once and a while.

      Well some people make millions just by lip-syncing into their mics, so it's not THAT far off. :P
