How To Rock Out With Guitar Hero

In case you missed it, Wired Magazine has created a great How To Wiki, which is a collaborative site dedicated to Do It Yourself projects and tips. My favorite entry so far is the How to Rock At Guitar Hero guide. So how can you shock your audience if you don't have the LEGO Gibson guitar?

  1. Challenge yourself - No pain, no fame. Skip the easy level (which requires just three fingers) and opt for medium - it's important to get your pinkie playing as soon as you can.
  2. Perfect the hold - There are more buttons than you have available fingers. Use your pointer, which is your most coordinated digit, to operate both the red and green buttons up top.
  3. Learn patterns - It's like playing Scrabble after memorizing the Scrabble dictionary - learn the tricks and you'll be able to give Santana a run for his money. If you're struggling to get through certain solos, check out the training mode.
  4. Maximize star power - You'll score more points if you're smart about your star power. Though it seems practical to wait until your meter is full to start using it to get double points, start at the halfway mark. Pretend your on American Idol, only with a guitar.

I've never actually played Guitar Hero before. No one I know has it and I haven't got a gaming system.
