While attempting to start my homework (and yes, I have homework a entire week before classes start. It's ridiculous), this lovely commercial came on:
What??? Really??? I'm all about playing guitar. I have a lovely one sitting in my living room that I attempt to play but the 16 years of piano lessons with a strict teacher who told me I would ruin all of my training if I played guitar make it a bit difficult. I'm also a fan of fake guitars, aka, guitar hero/rock band. It's nice to feel like you're a rock star when you only have to focus on 5 buttons and the strumming thing (though that game gets super hard, particularly after a night of "battle of the rock bands", also known as drinking and playing the game at my house). I'll even give you air guitar, though I lack any talent in this area. But this "guitar idol" stuff...well I don't get it. And definitely not for $19.99. It's like a weird combination of guitar hero and air guitar. Although I have to say, if I saw someone whip it out at work/class/the train, it would be quite a sight to see and may cause me to rethink this opinion.
