The video game. It's fun. If you've never seen it before, this first video shows it pretty well, both the screen and the guitar.<br><br><br><br>
DivX versions available to download on the <a href="http://crackedrabbitgaming.com/downloads/" target="_blank">Downloads</a> page. Sites below are streaming flash. YouTube has the WORST quality, so try the others first.<br><br><br><br><br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><b>Video 1: Guitar Hero II demo - Strutter (expert) with fingering!</b></span><br><br><br><br><b>Choose a Site:</b> <a href="http://www.gametrailers.com/umwatcher.php?id=15808" target="_blank">GameTrailers</a> | <a href="http://www.gamespot.com/pages/profile/video_player.php?id=J3Vgkjqs5bgNujfa" target="_blank">GameSpot</a> | <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pol0-wYckxI" target="_blank">YouTube</a><br><br>
(skip the first minute if you hate me)<br><br><br><br>
I did this so people (who haven't bought the demo) could see what <b>expert</b> looks like. It has a lot of <b>three-button-chords</b>, which are new to GH2. At the same time, I decided to show the <b>live-action part</b> of it (frets/strum on the plastic guitar), and put it at the top of the video. I flipped the video so it's a <b>mirror image</b>, that way <b>the colors match up</b>, making it easier to follow along.<br><br><br><br>
So while this was just meant to show a new song, <b>it's a pretty good video to send to friends</b> who have never seen the game before, or people who are having <b>trouble with chords and finger positions</b>, and want to see a good shot of it.<br><br><br><br><br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><b>Video 2: Guitar Hero Playing Positions</b></span><br><br><br><br><b>Choose a Site:</b> <a href="http://www.gametrailers.com/umwatcher.php?id=15810" target="_blank">GameTrailers</a> | <a href="http://www.gamespot.com/pages/profile/video_player.php?id=cScxkGD75bgNujfb" target="_blank">GameSpot</a> | <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJDaklC6LdA" target="_blank">YouTube</a><br><br><br><br>
A video demonstration of some <b>different playing positions</b> for Guitar Hero. Included are positions such as "flat," "upright bass," "<b>cross arm</b>," and more, <b>all done during</b> a single song (<b>You Got Another Thing Comin' - Hard</b>)! Finished with a five star review.

Didn't see your video, but I love guitar hero! Very fun game. My husband beat it on expert a few months back, he was very pleased :) I haven't played it nearly as often as he has, so I'm still on the second level (I easily beat the game on easy, working on moderate - and right now I'm enjoying star wars lego II way to much to play anything else!)

Awesome. Just awesome.<br><br><br><br>
I tried that game (my fiance has it), and I look so silly when I play it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

Do you play guitar IRL, Tommy?</span>

Nope.<br><br><br><br>
This is insane, this video hit the FRONT PAGE on YouTube for most viewed videos (for yesterday), #18! Over 30,000 views and counting, with an amusing discussion between GH fans and real guitarists:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pol0-wYckxI" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pol0-wYckxI</a>

If that helps you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> People compare every music game to DDR. They're all music games, it's a genre! It actually isn't so much like DDR, because in Guitar Hero you have to hold the frets AND strum, whereas DDR you just step.

Hehehe. Yeah, just trying to understand it. From a guitar player's point of view it's hard not to wonder why someone wouldn't ultimately get more out of a real guitar.<br><br><br><br>
But it's a game, it's meant to be fun, and you clearly seem to know which buttons to press. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Let me know if they ever come up with an Yngwie Malmsteen version. I'd like to give that a go. I sure as heck can't play like him on a real guitar. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/guitarist.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":guitar:">
