So on Black Friday, Target had the Supreme edition for $50 (comes with two guitars and 500+ songs) It was an impulse buy for the kids (and me) for Christmas. My son is going to be 7, and his exposure to music is mainly christian music and kid centric music. Having not really played much of RockBand\Guitar Hero I was wondering if there's anyway to limit what songs he could play along with. Is the music included kid friendly in terms on language and subject matter? Ethan is really good with rhythm and tone, and we thought he would enjoy the concept of the game.

I'm just hoping there is some sort of filter that I can apply to limit what he hears.

The songs in Guitar Hero Live don't include the explicit versions, but I don't think there is any way to specifically limit which ones he would be exposed to. 

One option is to create a Playlist of the songs you approve of and then have him only play from that, though I suppose if you wanted to play the Career mode that doesn't work.

I haven't played live, but the past games censored the lyrics of profanity.  That being said, the message is still there so Slayer's Raining Blood is probably not the most kid friendly song   icon_wink

Looking at their site it looks like the Live may be a bit more of a free for all for all songs.  I guess I would encourage you to just look up the lyrics online or give the song a listen on youtube prior to getting it.

There are two modes in GH Live - a career mode with about 40 songs and concert footage of fake bands in the background and a mode where you play over music videos of the rest of the songs.  You can either play the channels, which have constantly playing videos (like the MTV of 30 years ago slywink) or use credits to play songs on demand.  You get five free credits a day (if you have none when the day begins) or you can earn them by playing the channels.  The music in the channels bleeps strong curse words, but not things like "ass".  You'd be somewhat limited by not playing the channels, but there are always two going, so you could switch to the other if something objectionable comes up.

Thanks guys.  I think I'm going to return it.  I was able to view the list of songs, and the microtransactions bug the hell out of me.  Like I said, impulse buy, and didn't do any research.
