Swap Rock Band for Fender Stratocaster, says gaming site
Fans of video games such as Rock Band have been urged to pick up a real electric guitar instead.
According to James Naysmith of ComputerandVideoGames.com, a Fender Stratocaster would be a far better investment than pretend plastic instruments.
This, he said, is because if people are going to spend time and money learning to play Rock Band, they might as well "do the job properly" and learn to be in a real group.
Mr Naysmith acknowledged that some fans of the game may not have the time or talent to devote to learning a musical instrument.
However, he stated that the internet is full of learn to play videos that can help people grasp the basics of playing guitar.
"Give it a year and as you roar up to Christmas 2010, you might be good enough to experience a bit of rock god action of your own," he commented.
This echoes recent comments from Led Zeppelin's electric guitar player Jimmy Page, who told the Telegraph that playing a plastic instrument in a video game is a waste of time.Posted on 4 Jan 2010 13:00 to category : Instruments News
