I cant say anything about GR4 but I have used GR2 and 3 and they were good but
when I recently bought my first real amp im never going back to guitar rig. It has alot to offer but to me thats a downside.
I tend to play with the sound rather than play the guitar
but that not GR fault tho
Nah, personally I also like "the real thing" better, if one ever had your feet on a stage and got that kick when the pants starts to wave around your ankles (of course You have to wear -70's pants like me thou) along with the first chord, then You know what I'm talking about. It's like trading Your girlfriend for a bad movie from the 80's.
But hey, there are situations where this software is useful, and as i wrote in the WIKI
, what goes in comes out. We guitar players seems to be too pickernickety about sound, instead of actually PLAY. The guitar & the amp is nothing but a tool, its like a microphone for a singer. The point is, that if You take a great guitar player (like Muris for example, he uses GR3 for some lessons) and a great guitar - this software will sound tremendous. On the other hand, I've seen really good players play some piece'o'junk and it also sounded fantastic. I guess its just a matter of how You use the tools available, great music is not gear-dependable.
