Frustrations of a Guitar Hero Addict

Okay, this is SOOOOO annoying!

I don’t know if it’s my weak pinkie, my big belly that looks like a preggy woman’s tummy on prenatal vitamins that screws up the way I hold the guitar controller, or my lack of guitar skills… but I still can’t get over playing songs on Guitar Hero on Hard mode. ~_~

My bro, who is an awesome guitarist/drummer, can do Hard mode songs just fine on GH. But I can’t seem to get it right! I’m having a hard time with the transition from the green button (on the far left) and the orange button (on the far right). Damn my short fingers.

Or maybe it’s just the way I put my fingers on the buttons. My 12 year old nephew has the same size as my hand, and yet he can play just fine… since he beat my score (sheesh). I feel like I should get guitar lessons so I can learn how to play properly, since from what I could see, there’s a certain technique to it. I just got to figure it out.

Which would probably take me 10 years. ~_~

Of Seether and Childhood regrets

Okay, I’m home. XD

Actually, it’s been a couple of hours since I’ve been home, but it’s only now that I’m able to use the computer.

Anyway, recently, my friend Jam posted a link on my Facebook site about a new remake that Seether made. They recently made a remake of Wham/ George Micheal’s song called “Careless Whisper”. I’m listening to it right now, and I am just LOVIN’ IT! It’s pretty cool, hearing the sax solo from the previous versions converted into Electric guitar, and it still sounds the same. Honestly, I am starting to regret not taking guitar lessons from my brother, or stopping the piano lessons I had when I was a kid.

I can’t seem to remember why I stopped taking piano lessons. I think I got bored. My Teacher then was very strict, and my fingers sucked when it comes to pressing the right keys on the piano (you should see it on a keyboard though hahaha!). Oh, not to mention there was a time the cover of the keyboard feel on my hands and squished them. I guess I got traumatized after that.

Oh, and I had guitar lessons from my bestfriend too, but I didn’t have the patience to learn it though. Yeah, I suck as a music student.

Back to Seether, I think a lot of bands should do the same thing… you know, make remakes that are appropriate for their genre. Metallica did an awesome job with Bob Seger’s Turn The Page, and even Marilyn Manson did a good job remaking the Eurythmics’ song Sweet Dreams (though its a bit darker than Annie Lennox’s version). I can’t say the same thing with Limp Bizkit’s version of Behind Blue Eyes… a lot of other people loved it, but for some reason, I can’t seem to like it as much as they do. I mean, yeah, the lyrics are good, but I don’t know, I guess Fred Durst’s voice wasn’t cut out for ballads like that.

Anyway, back to the original topic, Seether’s Careless Whisper remake is awesome. I would’ve wanted to play it over in my office, but I doubt the people there would welcome such loud music, specially since I’m working in a Library. XD

Time to download it and put in my MP3 player.
