All The Wii Guitar Hero Games - For the very latest in rocking your WII

Guitar Hero was one of the first and best ways to become a rock legend in your own home. Fun and entertaining for the entire family. This is a listing of most all the ways you can rock your WII and be a Guitar Hero

Need a Guitar Hero for Wii Bundle - Guitar Hero III, Guitar Hero Aerosmith, Guitar Hero World Tour - Band Kit

Guitar Hero for Wii comes in three delicious flavors (well one is an upcoming flavor due to be released in November). Need the entire setup, I suggest picking up the bundle that would come with the guitar. Grab your copy of the original for the Wii, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock bundle. Want more of a Steve Tyler/Joe Perry feel to it, then go ahead and pick up Guitar Hero Aerosmith bundle. If you don't have it yet then those are the two that you could go for. As far as the upcoming flavor, due to be released in November, you can pre-order your copy of Guitar Hero World Tour - Band Kit today from Amazon and get a great deal and not have to stand in line on release day to pick up your copy. More on GHWT a little further down the page.

Suggestion: If you already have one of these and are looking for an extra guitar, you might want to think about picking up the other bundle of the one you don't have, 2 guitars, 2 guitar hero games, more to play and be able to play with and against your friends.

No Thanks, Only Need The Game - No prob, bob!

Just the games for guitar hero for Wii.

Guitar Hero for Wii comes packed and ready with three bosses that you can unlock and uses throughout the game, Lou, Slash and Tom Morello. Trick is you've got to do some stuff to get them out of the box and use them for yourself. What stuff you might say, you gotta beat them in the Boss battles while you play in career mode. Once you beat them and are still in career mode, simply go back to the shop and pick them up, for a nominal fee of course:

Lou: 15G's ($15,000) from your money stash.
Slash: 10G's ($10,000) from your money stash.
Tom Morello: 10G's ($10,000) from your money stash.

Guitar Hero for Wii: More Guitar Hero Skins and Guitar Hero Faceplates - Pimp my Axe - Great deals from Amazon

Capture your inner rocker's personality! Skin that Axe to fit your style. Skins are now available in many colors and designs for your Wii's Guitar Hero guitar, I'm sure that you'll find the perfect skin kit that's right for you.

Air Guitar to the next level. Don't look funny, you know you've played air guitar before. Well, drop the air and get the stick and do it on Guitar Hero for Wii. Guitar Hero 3 for the Wii is the perfect excuse to draw the blinds, stap on that spandex and big wig you had for Halloween and crank it up.

The guitar hero wii has totally transformed my family. Friday nights are no longer movie nights for this household. It's a virtual "Battle of the Bands"! Between my wife and I duking it out as to who can maintain the best riffs and the competition between my 12 year old son and 6 year old daughter, it's simply fierce.  It's gotten to the point where we have to draw straws to see who plays who and who goes first.

Here's what a typical Friday night holds in store. For starters, it's definitely the night we order in. Neither mom nor dad have time to prepare the traditional meal as that would lead to a disturbance in the backstage "warm-up" set, that we all get. Then it's off to the challenges. It's kind of embarrassing to say but we've actually had to flip coins to see who'd get the door when the food arrived.

Then the sets and jam sessions begin. The lights dim, the surround sound is turned up and...yeah we start with encores first. You get to eat dinner between your sets. We have fun with it and hit the lighters every once in a while as well. The 3 year old just jumps around and does her best air guitar session you could ever hope to see

You have just been challenged. Well, whoever says it first after the encores, they get to pick who they'll go up against. This happens throughout the evening and sometimes till the wee hours. It's been an awesome little investment that definitely brings us all together, as a family. Guitar hero for the Wii is just simply awesome.

Guitar Hero For Wii: Through the Fire and the Flames - For your viewing pleasure!

Now I'm now where near as good as this guy, in fact I'm probably down right laughable. Not enough practice as my times limited and I have to share. Kidding aside, good vid, found it out on youtube, hope you enjoy.

One thing you should know, "Through the Fire and Flames" is an unlockable song on Guitar Hero for Wii. To unlock it you got to beat it in career mode on any of the difficulties.

Then when the credits roll, you can unleash your rath on "Through the Fire and the Flames".

After that, don't worry about losing it, it'll always be in the bonus songs section of your playlist so you can always go back and practice some more.

I love comments. Tell me what you think. Just say HI. Let me know what else you'd like to see. I'm all ears.

      Hi copelandc2002, Nice Guitar Hero Lens. Combining a video game with air guitar is an excellent concept. Though I have quite a guitar collection, I'm looking forward to giving this a try some day. ~Music Resource~
