Cool, thanks for the advice everyone. I'm gonna do a whole range of things. Hopefully with practice I'll build up strength and agility again...

it's no replacement for the real thing and not something i'd suggest if you're trying to build up chops from nothing but if you've already got the ability to play and just need a way to hold yourself over it's great.
Haha I'd never thought of this, I have Guitar Hero but 'Hard' is as far as I've gone in difficulty so far...
