    Went down to my local electronic games seller and told him about it, and he reckons that 6 years is a very good run.

    But the very fact is that sales had dropped off in North America, Japan and Europe. It became financially unviable to keep it in production.

      I enjoyed GH: Van Halen immensely but mainly just for the set list. My biggest complaint is how cheaply the instruments are made. I drum hard in real life and the GH drum kit didn't stand up at all.

      RB has introduced a stringed guitar that can be used to play the game and played using an amp. GH can't compete with that.

        Once I have the money to get it, that is EXACTLLY what I will do. I WANT to be able to play a real guitar. That was why GH and RB were so much fun...I could pretend :-)

          My feelings also. I'm a guitarist stuck in a drummers body .

            It was a good concept but too many products, I think.

              I could never get past using three fingers. It was hard enough just playing on the Easy mode. I doubt I'll ever be playing next to Eddie van Halen.

                Playing guitar hero is nothing like playing an actual guitar, electronic or not. I can personally attest to that. Heck; the guitarist for dragon force bombed epicly when he tried to play through the fire and the flames on guitar hero even though he was the guitarist for the actual song. So the transit between guitar hero and real guitar may not be as easy as you may imagine.
                Standing here, I realize you were just like me trying to make history.
                But who's to judge the right from wrong.
                When our guard is down I think we'll both agree.
                That violence breeds violence.
                But in the end it has to be this way.

                  That's why i stuck playing the triangle, such a noble instrument.

                    Same goes for the drums. In some respects, it teaches bad habits.

                      I've never played the game, and the mechanics of how the "guitar" works appear very wrong from what I've observed. Having said that, I agree with Philip. I have always maintained that the time invested in learning to play the game could be better spent on an actual instrument. The money invested in the game could buy you a moderately respectable set up to get started.

                        My major block to learning guitar has been reading the notation. I get the concept, but time signatures, sharps, flats, speed of notes, where on the fret, just reading music in general is a complete mystery to me. If I was ever to learn it would be by mimicking alone.

                          Most every guitar player I have ever known plays by ear. Few have been able to read music. Guitar tabulature is much easier to decipher IMO.

                            OK, I've moved Persephone's thread from General Discussion to Console Gaming and merged it with Roddoss' thread.

                            In case you were wondering.

                              That's the cool thing about the Pro Guitar for RB:3; it is a real guitar.
