    And of course, if you wait until November you can get this game with the mini-amp. That tips the scales for me, overriding any disappointment in it not being Guitar Hero.

    Does that go for UK purchases as well?

    I have no clue.
    I'll just buy it now and seperately.

    I've spent a bit more time with it, and I like it better than I did initially, but it still hasn't quite clicked. Granted, Jeanne D'arc and Final Fantasy for the PSP are eating up all of my portable gaming time.

    New Zealand ads for Jam Sessions.

    Brilliant.

    Watch them. You won't regret it. (Unless you are at work).

    Nice. I don't know if anyone remembers it, but I also picked up Hanna Montanna 2 DS. It lets you pluck individual strings, but the overall sound doesn't sound nearly as good as Jam Session's.

    I fancy myself as a musician, so I picked this up just out of curiosity. I will say this, it is definitely not for people who either are not musicians or aren't trying to learn to play guitar.

    Basically I can only ever see using this as a tool to use while writing music because it is extremely easy to figure out chord progressions while writing stuff down. If I'm doing that with a real guitar, I've got to pick up the guitar, possibly have to look up how to play a certain chord, play the chord, put the guitar back down, write down whatever I'm writing down.

    being a guitarist who can't strum chords for a damn I find it easy to make a quick rhythm guitar track on this then do my regular solo noodling over top of that. I think I'll end up finding more about the how and why certain chord progressions sound through playing this game.

    I can really only recommend this to song writers who are "on the go" and may not have access to their guitar or piano at all times. As it stands now if I find inspiration in the break room at work or while strolling around at the mall, I can easily whip out the DS and throw down a few chords.

    With that said, I think I'll bring it to my next studio session and see if anyone is adventurous enough to fool around with it.

    As a (very) amateur guitar player, I have to say that this was not really worth the money that I paid at launch for it (though for $10 - $20 it would be fine). I played it for a few days at first, but really, there's not a whole lot to do with it.

    Yeah. I think it's very neat, but in the end it got traded in for Phantom Hourglass (which itself got traded in for Disgaea)
