Here, courtesy of music magazine Kerrang, is our first real look at footage from the upcoming Guitar Hero 6.

It's a brave attempt at something new from Neversoft, something Guitar Hero needed a game or two ago, but you have to wonder whether it'll be enough to overcome gamer's growing apathy towards the "plastic instrument" genre.
