For all of you guitar hero junkies, who have been playing guitar hero for years, but can’t play a single note on a real guitar, Guitar Rising may be for you. Basically, Guitar Rising is a video game where you use a real guitar in order to learn how to play real songs. You can slow down or speed up the songs or play them on varying levels of difficulty.
