Something weird about a 45 year old mom playing Guitar Hero June 8, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — auntlelo @ 8:13 pm

Yes, it’s true. My husband and I both spent a good part of our Friday evening playing Guitar Hero II with the teenager. It was embarassing. The embarassment didn’t stem from the fact that we were playing, but, at how bad we were. There’s something completely humbling about seeing “Song Failed” come up when you’re a fairly seasoned musician, especially since it was on the easy level.

I’ll have to admit, I didn’t know very many of the songs. Maybe I’ll just let my son play the songs and I’ll take up a new activity—“sweatin’ to Guitar Hero!”

  1. My not-secret-anymore Guitar Hero strategy is to tune out the music and just follow the dots on the screen. You’ll never have a “Song Failed” again, but you do run the risk of getting totally mesmerized by the endless lines of dots.

    You’re not alone, Lo. My new, very-seasoned musician, roommate failed quite a few songs on his first journey into Guitar Hero world. It will come to you in practice!
