I can actually play YYZ in a real guitar. Alex Lifeson absolutely shreds on this tune.

My son downloaded a demo of guitar hero for the 360 today, and it struck me as a monumentally pointless waste of time.

I know I sound like a curmudgeonly old sod, but I can't help feeling that it would be better to spend time learning to play a real instrument. It's much harder to learn to play a real instrument, and it takes much longer before you can play songs, but the skill is of great benefit to you for the rest of your life. What benefit is there is being awesome at guitar hero?

Would I being going too far if I suggested that the prior experience of playing guitar hero might lead a youngster to being more likely to get discouraged when faced with the long slow process of genuinely mastering the guitar?

Yep - definitely a grumpy old man ;)
