Are you all sitting for this?
My guitar is broken. Broken! After two weeks! The yellow button doesn’t work. Well, it works sporadically. And, no, I’m not just missing the notes. Really.
This is so frustrating to me, especially considering the fact I dragged my boss’ son’s guitar out at a retirement party and crushed “One.” Crushed it after 4 drinks, no less. I had a 267 note streak. Then I get home, and boom! No yellow button.
We tried to play without it, to hit it harder and coax it into working to no avail. On Sunday night, J declared “I’m not playing this piece of shit until we get a new one.” And hightailed it to Toys R Us today. Praise the Lord!
So I have a brandy new guitar and game waiting for me at home. J is “sick” and probably mastering Medium as we speak. All I can do is sit at work and try to strengthen my pinky.
In honor of Guitar Hero being back, here’s a cartoon my friend “Jessi” posted on my My Space page:
