The whole guitar hero thing has gone way out of hands because quite frankly it’s dorkish, or maybe I just don’t get it. If you spent half the time you are playing guitar hero practicing real guitar, you have a good chance of actually making a musical career. Especially if you play for severan hours per day.That must have been the same thinking behind Guitar Rising, which have made a software that uses any real guitar and actually teaches you how to play songs. The thing with any guitar sounds a bit shaky, but most definetly you would be able to use .a huge number of guitars, from the Fender Telecaster to the Gibson Les Paul.
According to GameTank’s CEO Jake Parks the connection is done through a guitar-USB adapter, a microphone, or directly to the sound card. The software is going to be released for Mac and PC as well.
So the brilliant idea here is that besides the actual fun of playing, you actually learn how to play the tunes! There will be different difficulties for different tunes and the whole thing will be quite similar to guitar hero. In other words, actually sing, don’t pretend! Way to go! Here’s a demo.
