It's coming out for the X Box 360 next week and I think I am getting it since my fiance loves to play it too.

Have you ever seen the modded guitar hero controllers?  Someone will gut the controller and "put" it into a real guitar... http://forum.guitarherogame.com/ click and search...there used to be a lot...

Anyway...I saw this thread and wondered if there was a simulator available for the PC.  There are 3 I found.  I downloaded two of them, but don't know when I'll ever be able to check them out....

No screenshots to speak of, but maybe its worth a look *shrug*

At first glance I thought they had a very active forum, but it turns out, that it is been taken over by spammers...ick

http://www.freetar.net/index.phpFreetar Hero, which is apparently so good the dude got himself a job at activision

http://louhi.kempele.fi/~skyostil/uv/fretsonfire/  Has potential, well screenshots.

Lastly....

360's Guitar Hero II guitar works in Windows, Frets on Fire

>> From joystiq.com:

The USB-equipped X-plorer guitar that ships with the just-released Guitar Hero II for Xbox 360 has some interesting tricks up its nonexistant but metaphorically convenient sleeve. Randy tipped us off that the guitar controller works in Windows Vista, but we had to check for ourself. This image was captured in Windows XP.

Of course, we quickly fired up freeware PC clone, Frets on Fire, to see if we could manage to get these two to play nicely together. Sure enough, after a minute of changing the control configuration, we were able to rock out! Unfortunately, while Mac OS X recognized the device immediately, it failed to be detected as an HID-compliant gamepad by either GamePad Companion or the open source Xbox 360 Controller driver.

Well, I got all 5 stars on each song on the easy campain and finished each song on medium(not 5 stars though). I don't know if I really am wanting to play much more because hard is too hard and that's not even expert. I guess all I can do is practice.
