One more question before this thread dies off...I'm assuming many of you that play have played GH I, II, and III. Once you learn how to play on I, I would expect that the others are a lot easier. You have the skills, it is just learning a new song. I know they made HP/PO easier, but other than that, am I correct that they should be relatively easy since the initial learning curve is over?


Guitar Hero 1 is pretty bad to learn on...hammer ons are impossible. Once you get to the expert level, you need to use hammer ons to hit really fast notes...basically you hit the strum bar once and then you can press the fret buttons for many notes after that without having to press the strum bar. In GH1 it's really hard to hit any hammer ons. Start with GH2 and GH3...unless you like GH1 songs.

I'm already up to Crossroads on hard with GH I. Can't get past that song, but that is another story. I was practicing HO last night with Fat Lip, since there are a couple in the beginning. I'm wondering how hard the transition will be to GH2. I assume it will be pretty easy since I already learned on GH1, I should be able to jump right into hard on GH2, correct?

Yep, definitely. The skill level really doesn't change.

My girlfriend got me guitar hero 3 on 360 for Christmas. We played co-op for the last two hours together... what fun!

She was unable to find the wireless controller so I got the wired controller. It is not quite long enough so I kept unplugging my guitar occasionally. She used the regular 360 controller since we didn't have a second guitar.

I am going to buy a usb extension cable for my guitar after christmas.

I would also like to get the wireless guitar for a second guitar when I have company or when she decides to quit using the controller to play.

GH III is crazy fun!

Christmas came a day early at our house, so "the kids" got a Wii, and some games, including Guitar Hero 3. We could only play it for an hour or so due to travelling today as well, and Christmas Eve at the relatives, so my kids are going to be crabby tomorrow after getting not enough sleep from an 11PM-1AM run through several songs. Of course, only 1 guitar, so we had to take turns. Can't wait for them to start selling guitars without the game for like $45 for the Wii...

I got GH II a couple of days ago as an early Christmas gift. I stopped playing becuase my knuckles have been hurting from playing so much. It has been almost two solid days without playing and I am still feeling pain. I am concerned about what this game is going to do to the long term health of my left hand. Am I going to have early arthritis from playing too much? I am not going to play any more until my hand is better.

Be careful playing, and if your hand starts to hurt, stop playing, would be my advice.

Other than that, the game is lots of fun!

Once you get to the hard/expert levels you feel like your right strumming hand is going to fall off...but you keep playing :).

I am still a complete noob and I am working through GH3 on our Wii on the Easy setting. My daughter is working through the Medium setting, although, I just played one of the songs around the 15th unlocked song on Medium and actually beat her. She said that I am doing too good on Easy, but I figure the better I do there, the better I will do moving through the difficulty levels.

My wife tried GH3 for the first time today (she had never played any version on any system prior to today) and after the first try of Hit Me With Your Best Shot and learning how to actually play, she failed at about 48%, but restarted and made it right through on Easy with 91% correct. She will get better, but the best part is that she said how fun that the game was. Now, all three of us will be fighting over it and my poor 8 year old daughter will be fighting all of us so that she can play Super Mario Galaxy (which is also fun, but in a different way)...

I take back all the thoughts I had on Guitar Hero...

It was hanging around (GH2) Christmas eve plugged into an XBox 360 and far be it for me to be a party pooper.

I think I found the game that got me interested enough in this generation of consoles that I'd buy one.

Only trouble is... I find myself wanting to follow the bass line instead of the guitar line in songs I actually know how to play on bass (The Trooper, Institutionalized, War Pigs, Billion Dollar Babies).

Maybe Rock Band will be a better choice, since the GFs family actually has a guitarist, vocalist and drummer as well... hmm...
