I think its easier to learn guitar playing acoustic, but it's its great that guitar hero/rock band will get more people playing any instrument.

I'm a decent shredder on guitar, but I can't play guitar hero for shit.  Not a fan.  Although Rock Band I found easier to play.

This doesn't seem like it would work too well. How well is the note recognition going to be? Also, the song list does nothing to impress me.

In the flashes of the trailer you see a tuning option. The note recognition should be fine as long as you tune to the game.  As far as the song list go I get the "generic rock riff" feeling from it. The music will probably be like what you hear on how to play videos.

If they allow for an import tabs option then it's problem solved.  I could easily see a big online community building around this if they execute it correctly.

I have the same problem. I thinks it's 'cuz we try and play it like a real guitar. I had to play on expert so you actually play all the notes, but once you get to a solo, *PLINK* *PLUNK* BOOOOO!!!

That game looks like a great learning tool.
