Turn it up to 11
There's more to being a guitar hero than pulling stupid faces and sticking out your tongue; you have to be pretty handy on the old six string. Unfortunately that takes years of dedication and tons of talent. So wouldn't it be great if you could play like a pro, jam with some rock gods and blow away your friends without all that fiddly string-plucking business?
The ingenious Power Tour Guitar lets you do exactly that and you won't even have to pick up a plectrum. That's because this pro-sounding electronic axe is touch-sensitive and brimming with hi-tech jiggery pokery that teaches wannabe rockers how to
well, how to rock!
Fully licensed by legendary plankmeisters Gibson, the stylish Power Tour is totally unputdownable. Why? Well for starters you won't have to learn any chords. Just follow the lights on the neck with one hand and 'strum' the sensor above the scratch plate with the other. It's so easy you'll be making a complete Slash out of yourself in no time.
Modes and effects
With the Power Tour you can also play along to several preloaded classics, including Smoke on the Water and Wild Thing. But don't worry if you've got the musical talent of an X-Factor reject because this clever instrument features various difficulty levels plus a 'learn' mode that teaches songs in segments.
Jam to your MP3s!
If you're thinking this is some novelty axe that sounds like a toy, think again. The Power Tour's built-in speaker emits a suitably crunchy kerrang and there are enough built-in effects to blow your wig off! You can also hook up to an amp or listen via headphones. As if all that were not enough, you can even plug in an MP3 player and rock out to your own tunes. Awesome! (That's muso-speak for brilliant).
Rock on with the white version!
As well as chords, the Power Tour allows you to bend notes and play hammer-ons, pull-offs and all the other fiddly-diddly stuff popularised by the likes of Van Halen and Hendrix. In fact the only thing this incredible axe can't do is teach you how to pull all the moves, shapes and stupid faces worthy of a true guitar legend. For those about to rock, we salute you! Kerraaaaang!
