Rather than making Guitar Hero guitars harder or more “realistic”, surely the success of Guitar Hero means that the onus is now on the manufacturers of “real” guitars to make them easier (in other words, more like the ones in Guitar Hero).
Why are they still making guitars with “real” strings that are difficult and boring to learn how to play and really make your fingers hurt? What is the point? Do we still slaughter our own cows? Dig our own wells? Work in the turnip fields for 18 hours a day, six days a week? No. Buttons have proven themselves to be much easier and more efficient. Plus, with the button guitar you can still use the instrument for its main purpose – pretending that it’s a penis or a machine gun.
Clearly, this is meant to be “provocative.” But it’s still idiotic.
