Guitar victim

I've decided something.

I don't want to get any better at Guitar Hero.

I'm fine with "Easy" or whatever setting it is that I play on. I tried Medium and it wasn't for me. I enjoy the song and I enjoy the company. I don't need to get good at it. Especially when playing World Tour when you can play with friends and just have fun.

Besides, I can't make my pinkie hit the blue button at all. It just doesn't work. Or when they try to make you hit both the blue and red buttons at the same time? Fuck that!

I'm no hero. I'm a Guitar Victim.


Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. All the feebs are doing it.

Thank YOU! Someone else who cannot make the pinky work! I thought I was defective or something.

I just play on easy and enjoy it rather than trying to beat it. I prefer Rock Band cause then I can sing and not worry at all. ;)

Hilly - we rock in the appropriate way. ;)

Guitar victim? That's brilliant!

I have never tried this game, not once. I think it would totally confuse me cause I would be trying to finger the songs for real.

Expat - I do what I can with what I have. ;)

Wil - new website? Kewl...I will check it out. And my friend that I played with plays guitar in a band. He said it switches off pretty quickly.

I love that graphic! I never thought I'd be able to play hard and then I mastered it. And then I thought how in the hell am I supposed to play that orange key I only have 4 fingers, but now I can do it and it's AWESOME!

Heff said...

Try playing a REAL guitar. There's no "easy" setting.

I can play on medium, but after a song or two my hand hurts and then I start to wonder what the point of playing is. It not like you are actually making music, so past the initial fun I don't have much desire to get any better at it.

I don't think it is a survival skill that I will need. "I could crack this coconut open if I had only learned to play guitar hero on expert level!"

I suck at guitar hero. It's not so much my fingers, it's the speed reading that kicks my ass!

Can I just tap my toes please?

That pinkie thing is exactly why Keith Richards doesn't use an E string, isn't it?

Verdant Earl said...

Paige - I don't even wanna think about that orange button all the way down there. Fuck that shit!

Heff - Now that is something I could see wanting to get better at. This? Nah!

Ookami - I see those kids on Youtube playing it on expert and I get a little sad for our future.

Jenn - tap away!

WLC - don't you start!

Uncool - I think Keith has a bunch of problems. The E string is probably the least of them.

Your freaking adorable admitting you cannot hit the blue button with your pinky!!!

Me, i just don't play those type of games!! They frighten me!!!

Happy Monday!!!

Come read my anniversary post!!!

Verdant Earl said...

Michelle - will do!

Slyde said...

i reached the same conclusion, after i mastered "normal"

i just cannot do hard mode. i dont have it in me.

mr zig said...

I'm with ya on this one!

Verdant Earl said...

Slyde - the rare instance we agree.

Zig - it's a stupid game, really.

I played guitar hero world tour for the first time this weekend. I'm the singer since my fingers won't hit ANY of the right keys on the guitar & I'm hopeless on the drums.

My lack of playing GH III is very shameful. Although I am playing more of the GH On Tour for DS lately. It's only got 4 buttons, which is less to remember. And it goes with me where I go (in my backpack).

Still, the thin layer of dust on my Gibson GH next to the PS3 is inexcusable.

I'm happy to be stuck at medium level playing. I have no plans to advance my Guitar Hero career beyond that. I applaud your decision.
