Tournament for 4 Starts Today

Hey there. Today is the start of the Guitar Hero tournament "Tour for 4". It's my first team competition, which is pretty much played out like a regular tournament, except that scores will be based on your groups participants and how well they rank. My tour group, Underneath the Bleachers, is ranked 12th best out of over 10,000 tour groups. That's pretty impressive if you ask me. Check out some of the gear that you can score to show support for the group Underneath the Bleachers.

Anyways, the competition spans over 4 days, with each day dedicated to a game. The competition starts today with GH: III. I'm planning on participating on 3 or the 4 days and the sad part about it is... that my freaking guitar controller is acting stupid. I'm pretty sure I can fix it since I know what the problem is. As you do a down stroke, the "click" is not registering it as a strum. I've already looked into the guitar and have seen the problem. I haven't been able to fix it only because the stupid screws in the guitar are super little and I do not have the "star" bit small enough to fit the screws. A friend that I have met in the community, Xara, informed me how the guitars that came with GH: World Tour game seem to give out after awhile. She let me know that there are places where spare parts can be bought but I don't think I'll go that route. I'm going to try to fix it tonight to take part in this comp. I have a Rock Band guitar but to be quite honest, I cannot use that guitar. It feels so odd playing with that thing that it bugs the hell out of me. It would suck if I can't get it to work. I don't want to compete using a bum guitar. Well... we'll see what happens. Later.
