Rusty Barrel patrons strap on the plastic axes tonight to compete in the weekly PS2 Guitar Hero Challenge. Some of these people are freakin unbelievable, says Rusty Jesset, the clubs owner. I guess they sit in their basement and practice all day long. The popular video game allows amateur guitarists to play along to songs by Rush and Janes Addiction. Points are awarded every time a correct note is hit. The contestant with the highest score after five rounds wins $25. Its fun, especially for us 80s big-hair-band kinda guys, says Jesset. If you miss a note, you miss a note. Its not as embarrassing as being a karaoke idiot on a microphone.
