Just Because You Play Guitar Hero Does Not Mean You Can Play Guitar!

guitar hero

Bill Wyman (he of former Rolling Stones) agrees with me, and so does Nick Mason! They have both recently talked about how they feel kids aren’t bothering to learn real instruments instead spending ages learning to play something that has no use whatsoever. The BBC news article goes on to say the producers of Rock Band say that they have heard many stories of kids picking up real instruments after getting a taste of it on their games.

Either way more people need to pick up an instrument and start a crappy band, its an experience I reckon every teenager should go through because there is nothing like the feeling of playing your own song that consists of two chords and a 5 second hammer on solo in front of 15 people who are mostly just your friends.
