All of your musical needs – specifically your guitar playing needs – can be found in Inspired Instruments’ You Rock Guitar. It doesn’t matter if you are a Guitar Hero junkie or a full-fledged professional guitar player, this thing has it all. It is known as “the world’s most advanced video game and music controller” for no small reason. So let’s look into what makes this so.
The biggest issue with those who want to learn how to play guitar on their own, as a step up from playing games like Guitar Hero, is that these soon-to-be rock gods need to learn how to tune their six-strings alongside learning to play these instruments. So the first big thing about the You Rock Guitar is a blessing to these future rock gods…no tuning necessary! Turn on and plug in and it is already tuned and ready to go. Every time. Nice, huh?
The next feature favors the rock god-to-be also. It is called “real string articulation.” This means that, unlike Guitar Hero, where you push four or five colored buttons to “hit” a note, with the You Rock Guitar, you have to find and press the right string, in the right position on the fretboard, and press it down hard enough to “hit” the same note. More like the real thing than Guitar Hero’s plastic pseudo-guitar. This feature alone is bringing real guitar players over to the video game playing field. The designers of You Rock Guitar are betting on the desire of most of Guitar Hero’s wannabe guitar gods to want to pick up the real instrument and take their skills to the next level. This feature is hedging on that bet.
The You Rock Guitar game controller can be plugged into any of the major game systems, so it doesn’t matter if you own a PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, or any other, you can use the You Rock Guitar on any platform. You can even hook up to your iPod, iPhone or mp3 player to jam along with your favorite tracks. A USB connector will get you hooked up to your PC, so there is no where you can’t plug in and tear it up. This includes the partner to the real instrument, the amp. Rock on.
And Mac users, don’t feel left out. You Rock Guitar lets you rock til you drop also.
Then there are all the built-in sounds that let you mimic an acoustic, electric, blues, or rock guitar. Add the MIDI compatibility and, as I said above, all of your music and video game needs are to be found all in the same place. It doesn’t matter how far your musical aspirations lie – weekend guitar warrior or complete musician – You Rock Guitar will be there to cater to your every desire.
