    Do you like Guitar Hero?

    Well now you can play it on your PC, using your keyboard! This game is very similar to Guitar Hero, and best of all it's FREE!

    Get it @ http://fretsonfire.sourceforge.net/

    It's available for various Operating Systems.

    There's also a flash clone of this game which you can play online for free called Flash Hero (Keep in mind that the graphics aren't too great, and that you can't import your songs in this version. So if you want a better game get Frets on Fire OR the official Guitar Hero PC game which is already out, it's not free though lol)

    *EDIT* If you want the official product then get Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, unfortunately there's no demo for that though so you'll have to buy it if you want to play it.

    yeah frets on fire is good but it can be a pain editing your own songs, especially when its like frampton or skynard and the songs last about 13 minutes. plus it only comes with like 3 premade songs so yeah, but you can always download premade songs.

    Guitar Hero is a game... where you play guitar... similar to the idea of Singstar.

    Well this game isn't really too realistic in terms of comparing it to playing a real guitar. And yeah you do use a guitar controller, but if you look at the way the game is played your actually just tapping colored buttons which appear on the screen rather than simulating the actual method of playing a guitar which involves the strings and so on.

    It goes to show that there's a lot of interest in such a thing.

    I believe there's finally going to be an official Guitar Hero for the PC soon. So that's good news for the hardcore fans. But it won't be free...So the free alternatives will still serve their purpose :)

    so if there is goin to be a guitar hero for PC, then either they're gonna make a USB guitar, or go with the dodgy frets on fire controls (not likely). But it could work out rather well, since there'd be downloadable songs more readily accessible.
