Guitar hero? More like comedic relief sidekick

I was finally able to track down Guitar Hero for the Wii. I had to drive all the way to Fairfield, but since I was on a mission it was worth it. A Guitar Hero for the Wii sighting is almost as rare as an actual Wii sighting. You must act quickly or else it will instantly be gone and no one will ever believe you.

After playing for the last few hours though I've come to the not so shocking realization that I suck. Actually I'm not THAT bad. But it's definitely a different experience and will take some practice . . . practice that could probably be better spent practicing on a real guitar or keyboard. But that would actually be productive so no worries there.

Another problem is that I'm not sure if I should play it right-handed (the way I "play" a normal guitar) or if I should switch over to my natural lefty state. I play a regular guitar right-handed, but that's only because I play chords which requires minimal finger movement. My fingers on my right hand (which would be the fret hand if I was playing lefty) are actually far more nimble and might be better suited to the likes of Guitar Hero.

In the meantime I'll just have to practice (whenever I'm not playing Team Fortress 2 with Adam *hint hint bro*) Eventually I want to play this song (which is actually on the open source PC knockoff Frets on Fire, but I don't care since it's always the first song I think of when I think of the likes of Guitar Hero.) It's not as polished as Guitar Hero, but the beauty of Frets on Fire is you can theoretically set it up to play anything. ;)
