    Why didn't they do a video of someone who actually knew what Smoke On The Water was supposed to sound like???????

    Sound quality

    Couldn't you at least have recorded this tripe on something other than a camera-phone? Wunch of bankers, they looked like to me.

    She looks hot in the pink top, pity she doesn't have any strumming rhythm, what a waste.

    I don't pretend to know how this works but..

    My EyeToy has had a guitar game that works very well for years. Is this done via camera or is it some new fangled thing that's not mentioned?

    How it works..

    He states theres a sensor in the belt buckle, so presumably its just a motion sensor as you get in alarm systems, picks up the movement in front of it and triggers the sound. Its hardly new technology, they've just put different things together, now if you could actually finger the chords (fnar fnar) at the same time, that would be clever!!

    She looks like shes strumming something else... or is that just my filthy mind?? I'll get me coat.

    Great idea, but without anything to do with your other hand is it not just a poormans Guitar Hero.

    Unless it picks up on your flair somehow which might be retty cool.

    Otherwise I'd suggest they add a glove so you can work the fret board by flailing madly with your other hand.

    I agree ...

    ... this really needs some sort of pickup for the left hand (or right hand for lefties) to work an "air fret". There's no artistic element to this at all - you could do it just as well by hitting the space bar on a keyboard !

    Is it me???

    Or is there something extremely wrong looking with a guy (with empty hands) waving his hand excitedly around his groin? I don't mind watching the moderately hot woman doing it of course ;)

    A bit like SongTapper in reverse......

    What Shaun said.

    ...But with fewer question marks. I guess I'm showing my age, but I'd rather just put the album on and play my trusty air guitar. That way the tune sounds the way it's supposed to.
