Random Cathy vs. Guitar Hero III

Today, Jim Burdette brought Guitar Hero III.

We've done this before. Our conference room with its dual screen set up makes it a perfect venue for lunchtime competition. Though I've watched in the past, today was the first time I'd ever played.

It was cool. I chose a Japanese pop-star avatar, picked up my plastic guitar, received minimal instruction, and the music began.

The main point of this post...Guitar Hero is SO MUCH HARDER THAN IT LOOKS. In fact, in mid song, my avatar stopped playing, put her face in her hands and sobbed, ponytails bobbing in abject misery. And it was all my fault.

The end of a promising career all because of a silly plastic guitar.

I will avenge you Japanese pop star. I promise!

I'm terrible at it. Which is crazy, because I'm awesome at air guitar. The trick - and this is coming from a noob - is that you don't play it like music, you play it like a video game. Sounds goofy, I know, but it's true. Keep rockin' - pretty soon you'll be at least as good as the Bangles. Although, you might have already surpassed them. :) Oh, and hey, thanks for the wonderful words on my blog!
