Introduction: Play Rock Band 2 With a Real Guitar and Boxing Gloves

Does the plastic guitar controller of Rock band and Guitar Hero make you feel silly? Wouldn’t you rather play the Harmonix games with a REAL guitar? Of course you do! And how about getting punched in the shoulder with boxing gloves as you play, just to make it all more interesting?

Tested with Rock Band and DJ Hero.

Norwegian audio but the end where we play this monster is worth watching.

An explanation might be in order: In the video I'm playing Rock Band 2 with a real guitar, but I swapped out the strumming with a boxing glove.

You can see a complete tutorial on how to do this on my blog.

Definitely a fun hack...not something I'd be doing to improve my scores.  Getting punched to the beat probably doesn't help things :D

Well, it wasn't that distracting really, but then again she didn't hit very hard :)

I was thinking that something like this would be fantastic at a stag party or something like that.
