The Plastic No-No Band
We can't help but do better. We were ... awful. Just couldn't find the rhythm. There was something about the meeting of fingertips and plastic that left us a little bit cold. It's safe to say all the years we spent practicing guitar on instruments with real wood fretboards and steel strings never prepared us for this. No sir.
The Allman Brothers' "Ramblin' Man," our choice because we can actually play the song on an authentic guitar, turned into a fiasco. Could Dickie Betts do those licks on Guitar Hero? We might as well have been trying to play Beethoven's 5th. We felt like we had DRANK a 5th. Come to think of it ...
Maybe if we had switched off the plastic Stratocaster and grabbed the plastic Les Paul we could kicked some plastic booty. Like we said, next time.
