    As the title says, what do you think earns the right for you to say that you're good at Guitar Hero? I just did a Walk This Way DMC Hard sightread and I got 87% and can do most of the songs on Hard and a few tiers on Expert, does that mean I'm good?

    This.

    I'm not gonna lie. I can probably RB on Expert but I get FUCKED on the last tier of GH3 on MEDIUM.

    So I play on hard. RB at least.

    Therefore, to most hardcore enthusiasts, I suck.

    I have fun 87% of the time.

    When I play GH3 at home, on my normal TV I do pretty well. When I play GH3 at my friends home on his Wide sceen TV, I totally sucked...

    What the hell?

    If you can make the underwear of any female in the vicinity spontaneously disintegrate when you activate star power, then you're a true Guitar Hero.

    I'm still practicing, personally.

    i can play eruption by van halen, note for note.........

    on real guitar.

    But in all honesty real guitar is a lot easier to play than guitar hero lol

    Example: Monkeywrench by foo fighters on gh2

    I pretty much suck at Guitar Hero 3. But I do enjoy playing it. I have no desire to go through the game on anything past medium. I enjoy the songs, like to act like a fool rocking out and that's pretty much it.

    GH: Aerosmith doesn't interest me unless I get it on the cheap. And now Rock Ban2 has got my attention for having The Who's Pinball Wizard and Jethro Tull's Aqualung (though I wish it was Locomotive Breath).

    But everyone knows that.

    :lol 

    My manager once told me that the day that someone got laid for their GH skills he would go on a killing spree.

    I say when you're getting laid for it, you've pretty much peaked.

    What defines a GOOD Guitar Hero? Rock Band :p 

    Joking and bias aside, eh I guess it really depends. Being able to play on any of the higher difficulties (Hard and Expert) takes some skill and would certainly qualify as being good at the game.

    As for being great at the game, beating some of the harder songs on higher difficulties.

    As for being amazing at the game, beat/5 star Thrasher and the Devil Went Down to Georgia.

    Probably because GH makes some parts hard for no reason and you have to time when you play, but on a real guitar you can have a lil bit of adjustment. I can play pretty much all of Reptilia on a real guitar but phail on Expert

    It depends on the perspective of the person judging you. I'm a decent Hard player on Drums and Guitar in Rock Band, starting to dip my feet into Expert Drums, but feel overwhelmed on Expert Guitar so probably need more practice. It's been several months since I played GH3, but I was decent most of the way through Medium on that (which keeps with the usual rule of thumb that GH3 is about one difficulty level harder than RB). To the kind of people who post on Score Hero I'm mediocre because I have trouble finishing songs on Expert while they're FC'ing them. On the other hand, to my friends who come over for parties, I'm a rock god because I'm getting 99-100% on Medium and 95%+ on Hard while they are struggling to keep from failing out on Easy.

    someday someone will get laid for guitar hero, its on the horizon lol

    Its beginning to pop up in bars around here in liuex of karaoke. We play rock band quite a bit after coming home from the bars, did last night in fact. Girls seem to really enjoy rock band more though, so i say someone gets laid for rock band skills first......

    but guitar is like the dorkiest part of the whole ensemble, If you can sing, thats cool cuz you are actually singing....... The drums , i dont know....... chicks just love drummers i dont know why........... but the guitar is still considered nerdier than the aformentioned instruments, especially if you play on expert............most of the time girls just laugh lol

    But you nail that opening vocal wail at the beginning of Highway Star on rock band......... Thats a panty peeler

    I just recently 5-Starred everything on Medium in GH2. I can't play Hard because my hand can't move fast enough to use all five frets.

    But I consider myself good enough for the difficulty I play on. And I have fun because a number of songs are still challenging enough on Medium that it isn't too easy.

    I went up in difficulty until it felt like a job instead of a game. So in GH3 I play on hard 100% of the time and Rockband I bounce between hard and expert on the guitar. Medium on drums. Expert on GH3 was no fun at all for me so I backed off.

    Ugh I just tried Walk This Way DMC Expert and got to the outro and died. I hate how some parts af a song are so easy yet repetitive that you miss them for no reason
