That would be cool, but I think Keytar Hero(copyright of Titan;)) would be cooler.

Would you like to be blowing into a plastic tube that you cannot clean out because it is an electronic device so getting saliva in it isn't a good idea.

I will never be truly happy untill violin hero comes out.. it would be perfect.. it would be the same concept as a guitar hero guitar except for the strum would be controlled by violin strumming thingymajig (can't remember the name of it..argh mental blank)

Untill that day comes when Violin Hero comes out I feel my life is not fully fullfilled.

Not once have I ever played a Violin or even thought about it.. but I feel the idea is to brilliant to never get done :(

Ska Hero would be amazing man! :eek: I was talking about that to one of my many friends not too long ago.

I'd play that trumpet 24/7 if they went and made that.

Someone at my school told me the next GH is going to have touch screen fret buttons, but how true this is i don't know. HE often likes to spread bullshit so i'm not believing it at all, but i figured i'd post it in case anyone else heard anything

Instrument: Tamborine ;)

Would there be any benifet to that? other then I guess they could change the colour of the buttons half way through a songs. Would also increase the price of the controller.

All I know that is confirmed so far for GH4 is drums xD

Personally I think they should of split it seperately and had Drum Hero as a completely seperate game.. otherwise they are going to be ending up calling them selves Band Hero.

I did hear rumoured though that you will be able to put your own songs into GH4 and it will convert them into a GH song automaticaly for you. How true this is I don't know.. all I do know is Microsoft won't be liking that because they won't be able to profit off of song packs lol.

I think, but not sure, you just create notes. I don't think you could upload mp3's or something and have the game make it for you.

I honestly don't know but i don't believe it myself, and i agree with it raising th cost. And the whole point of GH is to make it feel like a Guitar not an Iphone

Why stop at a Violin?..

You could have a string quartet:
Two Violins (the "first" plays the melody line in the higher register of notes, and the "second" violin, which plays lower notes in harmony), one viola(smaller violin) and one cello. or instead of a 2nd violin you could have a bass.

A Keyboard or Keytar: it would be an easy one to add.. and would fit in quite well
http://www.gruposmadrid.com/articulos/keytar.jpg

A Tamborine: also would be an easy one to add

A Mixing deck/Turntables: So you could really mix it up.. ;) lol

Marakas: Similar to the tamborine

An Accordion: could be loads of fun and probably not to hard to make

personally once they added drums and a mic they just doomed the whole series now theres a less emphasis on guitar and more on a whole band :(

Triangle Hero.

haha that's what I was going to say! But seriously, other instruments as a totally different game would be kool but not for Rock Band. What part of the "rock" did you people not undertsand? The game has mostly rock and metal bands that do not use any of those instuments. Guitar, Bass, Drums, and Mic are the basics. If they were to create "Jazz Band" or "Ska Band" then that would be kool and give people more options to what kind of game they want to play.

not true. eg. "horse the band" ( http://www.myspace.com/horsetheband ) used a theremin on various of their songs. especially in eastern europe there are a load of metal bands that use the akkordeon for some kind of "middelages metal". "flogging molly" ( http://www.myspace.com/floggingmolly ) uses the violin and a keyboard/keytar is used by really many bands of the more "merrier" metal and rockbands. to say i am sure that nearly every of the named instruments has been used in rockmusic too...

Saxophone would be nice as mentioned, but it would be complicated to clean it...
And I really like the Accordion Idea.

I think he is talking about the guitar hero "on tour" not "world tour" as on tour is for the nintendo DS look on the guitar hero website for information

I'd say keyboard would definitely be the best. It would be pretty easy to incorporate into quite a few songs and it would be enjoyable to play.

Fiddle, guitar, Melodeon, Vocals and Drums can be used :P

Rusty Trombone hero? (However Trombone is spelt)

By the way did you ever notice that someone who plays the trombone is a tromboner? just thought Id point that out.

i would put in a piano or maybe a saxophone. Piano would make it more trance technoish. Sax would be for ska i think.
