Making Music With Frets On Fire
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Mac360 recently posted a new article examining Frets On Fire, an open source game in the style of the popular Guitar Hero franchise. To succeed players must use their keyboard to keep up with the musical notes on screen. Mac360 recommended the game as fun and addicting.

Itís simple. You play the guitar with your fingers and the Macís keyboard. You can play songs from other Frets on Fire users or compose your own with the song editor.

Itíll even import Guitar Hero I and II songs, which is especially important for the younger generation that thinks tattoos and metal hanging from body parts is cool. Oh, and know what Guitar Hero is.

For me it was just plain old fun. I have longer fingers, eight of them, and slightly shorter thumbs which can be used to play a musical instrument or to tell the neighborís dog to hit the road or visit the inside of the outside trash compactor.
