I really think if you want to learn the guitar and couple this with something like JustinGuitar.com or something like that it would make you a pretty good player. The Justin Guitar site will teach you really where to put your fingers for this or that and the "game" will make the practice actually fun. Shooting zombies by playing different cords, or shooting little cowboys by hitting this or that string will teach you where the strings are on the guitar...you will get there faster without looking using the game then I think you will on your own....you have to look at the screen to see what cowboy to shoot and such.
Learning the songs is pretty straight forward and you can ease into them...it is fun....and it is real practice.
It does draw flack for looking like guitar hero in how the notes are shown to you, but really on a TV I think it is the best way....get that guitar hero out of your mind and it becomes much les a game (never had that game so it is easy for me)...
After you actually sit down and use the program first hand...and use it for about a week, I would say you are going to quit thinking of it as a game and more of a learning aid.....and that snobbish attitude thinking that your gold top is just a game controller will go away very quickly.
