Man, I would love some game that would actually have me learn to play guitar. I\'ve tried on my own and just don\'t have the tenacity. I think that I would with a game though. Hope this one actually works out.

Guitar no, drums yes.

I\'m an average at home guitarist who has played for fun for 11 years and I personally love the idea... Guitar Hero was limited short term arcade fun, but you quickly realised it was boring. Hopefully this promises to be what all guitarists wanted guitar hero to be - accurate tablature that auto scrolls, with adjustable tempo to enable you to learn wicked solos in slow mo and speed up as you get better, and something that gives feedback on how you\'re doing (e.g. in time/out of time, playing duff notes etc). Secondly a practice mode that teaches proper scales and techniques would be awesome, I haven\'t had the time or inclination to go to lessons since high school.
Hopefully they\'ll have an option for bass guitar too! Please? Pretty please????

Yep I like this, for all the reasons you state in the article. I\'m no guitar hero but i like playing and just bought an electric acoustic again recently with the intention of learning more. My only concern is the publisher - Ubisoft were threatening to bring out some new game play model that required constant internet connection in order to use their products at all. I don\'t mind them preventing piracy but if they are still persisting with that stupid plan it rules me out.

Ipad already has an app like this called RockPodigy.

Do some research before you write an article because Rock Band 3 does teach you how to play a real guitar....
as well as drums and piano!
David Lochhead
He did the reasearch and mentionned Rockband 3 and RockProdigy is for the Ipad only and without the a larger screen it is really difficult to follow along and Apple won\'t release it for the MAC in general.

Well I\'m a professional musician and guitar teacher living in NY and I\'m just tickled that this thing is coming out. I may have to buy an xbox now. If it\'ll let me play my Paul Gilbert and Greg Koch you\'ll have to pry me off the thing to get me to eat. If the multi player feature is any good it\'d probably make a great lesson tool as well. All in all I\'m really happy to see something like this produced.
I really like what Mr. Robertson said with regard to the specifics of playing and what he\'d like to see. It\'s people like him, familiar with the guitar, if not absolutely proficient, who can help the designers of the game to fine tune to it to a level we can all get something out of it. I know they\'re going to have consultants on their team, but I mean they should consider opening the process wide to include all kinds of people of varying degrees of ability. Imagine what a product they\'ll produce if the developers will listen to lots of people like him, the musician/instructor above, and even folks that don\'t know the first thing about a guitar beyond the fact the like the sound. What times we\'re living in. I bought an electric guitar and an pro level amp in 99\' hoping to learn to play, and it has been leaning against the wall in the attic for almost that entire time.
