Guitar Wizard teaches you to play a real guitar
As you probably already know, I’m a huge fan of Rock Band, as well as the Guitar Hero franchise. I’ve spent more time rocking out on a plastic guitar that I care to talk about. It’s ok though, because I decided to learn how to play a real six-string. My dad always told me that the first step to learning how to play a real guitar was buying one that looked good. I think he was right, because every time I walk into my office it taunts me with its good looks. I long to make it sound as good as it looks. My skills are far from honed, so any extra help is always appreciated. This is why I was stoaked when I heard about Guitar Wizard.
It’s kind of hard to describe, but think of this as Guitar Hero for the real thing. Your strings are color-coded and use a variety of shapes such as hearts, stars and other shapes to tell you what to play. There will be two kits, one comes with a Washburn guitar, one will just have a small device that will hook into your electric or acoustic guitar.
I’m interested in checking this out, however, by the time it hits stores this fall I hope to be good enough to not worry about something like this. The bundles will run either $99 or $179 depending on whether or not you get a guitar with it.
