No not really.

It does NOT teach you at all to play the guitar in any way, real Guitars have strings and you have to press down on different strings and strum on different strings, on Guitar Hero press buttons and flip switches, that's all

No, I'm trying to learn how to play real guitar, and guitar hero is not helping me.

No it doesn't help you at all if you wanna get faster at it play more often and if you don't know what a hammer on is look it up so don't waste your time trying

No not at all. it is completely different from a guitar.

No, not even nearly. a guitar hero controller is basically like pressing coloured buttons while moving a switch

Learn to Be a Real Guitar Hero?

Believe it or not, the fake bass and guitar playing of Guitar Hero has been linked to improved performance on real guitars. A study by the University of Rochester compared the performance of novice guitar players who were Guitar Hero regulars to novice guitar players who did not play the game. Novice guitar players who were Guitar Hero regulars were shown to grasp lessons more quickly, both intellectual and muscle memory based.Guitar Hero players had a much easier time learning scales, achieving complete playthroughs without mistakes in half the time of the non Guitar Hero players. The Guitar Hero gamers were also shown to have increased aptitude in finding and remembering chord fingerings.The lesson? Even playing a fake guitar develops the portions of the mind used in learning an instrument."The fact that the guitar used in the game Guitar Hero is not an instrument in the traditional sense does not negate the fact that it is an instrument," lead researcher Dr. Tate Yolunder said to interviewers. "The fact is, you have to have the same discipline, timing, and focus to correctly play the Guitar Hero guitar that you need to have to play a traditional guitar."This has interesting implications for parents of children everywhere looking for a suitable pasttime for their ADD ridden kids. Kids who hate taking lessons would gladly play Guitar Hero with their friends, which means that they would actually be learning an instrument, albeit one that could only be played for that particular game.However, the skills developed could lead to an easier transition into musical proclivities later, say researchers. The habits that are formed playing Guitar Hero definitely develop a discipline that can be used in other areas.The bottom line? Parents of bad kids need to plop them down in front of the TV set after all. It is too bad that no one has come up with a similar solution for math and science!

Can you play real guitar like Guitar Hero?

No. I will explain why. A guitar has 6 x (about) 22 fretting points (6 strings with 22 frets) which gives you 132 things to press separately if you press down only one at a time. On a guitar hero controller you have five buttons which result in about 32 combinations if you press ANY amount of buttons. Thus, as you can see, it is much more complicated to play a real guitar than the guitar hero controller. The only thing guitar hero teaches you is how to maintain a certain rythm and how to keep your head if you fretted the wrong note during a complicated solo. Certainly not how to play a real guitar.
