I tried *listening* to the Oldest Offspring play Guitar Hero and I had
to put in ear plugs.

There are rock songs, guitar rock songs, that stray below the 22nd fret,
even occasionally using strings other than the B and high E . . . oh,
and using this musical specialty called 'melody'

yeah, I'm thinking I should track down whatever's the newest version of
the San Francisco Rush games, and some of the Xbox stuff I loved playing
with my kids. Except my non-driving daughter trashed me at Rush every
single time.
