tune in: Rock Band 3

To all you music gaming enthusiasts that have blistered your fingers and have wasted countless hours of your time rocking out with a plastic guitar controller with no knowledge of chords at all, you now have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument.  Or at least get the feel of it.

Harmonix has now released Rock Band 3 with a 2-octave Wireless Keyboard Controller in keytar form factor.

Rock Band 3 can also be played with the Wireless Mustang Pro Guitar Controller, which mimics the actions of playing a real guitar, but instead of strings, there are corresponding fret buttons instead. 

What's more, Rock Band 3 can also be controlled with an actual guitar. The Fender Squier Stratocaster guitar controller is a fully-functioning six-string instrument that can be used both with the game and with an amplifier.  To find out exactly how this works, you can read this ARTICLE.
