Guitar Wizard teaches you to play a real guitar


Guitar Wizard

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.

Aside from the timing of the music being monitored by your pc I see nothing here that Tablature can not do.

my friend,

Please throw that whole rig in the rubbish. Learning to play a musical instrument is a very well understood process. People have refined this process over centuries and there are no shortcuts.

Just gitchur nifty new guitar, close your eyes, and learn some scales…..

best of luck to ya!
