You Rock Digital Announces You Rock Guitar™ Compatibility with Rock Band™3 Pro Mode

SIMI VALLEY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–You Rock Digital™ announces You Rock Guitar compatibility with Rock Band 3 Pro mode, in addition to already controlling older five-button music video games like Guitar Hero® and Rock Band®.

“You Rock Guitar is the bridge between video games and real music, teaching people how to play real guitar,” said Cliff Elion, president of You Rock Digital. “Compatibility with this latest version of the Rock Band platform provides an enhanced “guitar-like” experience for beginners and experienced players alike, using You Rock Guitar’s familiar simulated strings instead of knobs.”

Additionally, You Rock Guitar offers 25 guitar sounds and 50 synth sounds for players to play along with the game. “Hearing you playing along with your favorite song makes all the difference in the experience,” Elion said . “To those who say the lack of innovation has hurt the future of music games, we say, ‘Play Guitar You Rock’.”
