Amen to that!
My friend brought his 360 over and we were playing The Trooper and I kept hitting the orange instead of the blue, its to damn small.

GH2 is the only video game I play, when I have the time that is.

I put a deposit down on the 80's Rocks one last month. Right up my alley....:smoke:

My 360 guitar shit the bed the other day. I can't use star power now without hitting the select button and that little thing is impossible to bullseye when you need it. I need to buy a new guitar so I can get in on that GH3 action.

The mercury diode in the 360 guitars is baaaaad. My ex-roommate solved this problem by taping a stack of nickels on the select button. 60% of the time it works all the time.

See, I was afraid it was a mercury switch. I popped open the guitar and I suspect that the diode is the silver disc under the whammy bar electronics. I jam on the whammy bar and beat the fuck out of the guitar when playing expert Misirilou, so I have a feeling that the mercury switch just took a pounding. That's really too bad. I'm not looking forward to shelling out for another guitar but I'm going to have to. I don't know what I'll do if I can't keep playing these damn games.

60% of the time it works all the time.

I have to tell you, Brian. That doesn't make any sense.

Rumor has it that there will be a kick-ass wireless guitar out before christmas so if you can hold off it might be good :)
