Is it possible to learn guitar on Garageband without having a guitar?

I really don’t have any other options right now, I can’t get a guitar anytime soon.
It’s not a game, you idiot, Guitar Hero is the game. It’s a guitar learning program.

Chosen Answer:

you can learn how it works musically (memorize chord shapes, notes, etc.) but that won’t really help with the dexterity and muscle memory that you need to actually play guitar. My suggestion would be to buy a cheap guitar ASAP its the only real way to learn

    I don’t know how effective Garageband is but, I would say to go for it just to get some prior knowledge for when you do start. However, don’t expect to be immediately able to play. As with anything, without practice, you wont be able to play anything, regardless of whether you know howto or not.

    Garbage band is a GAME.. the ‘guitar’ is just a PLASTIC TOY that is nothing more than a video game controller that LOOKS like a guitar. You will find that playing that TOY GAME will actually make it HARDER for you to learn how to play a REAL guitrar.. not make it easier. it’s bou one step above playing AIR GUITAR.

    There is only one way to learn how to play a REAL guitar and that is by playing a REAL guitar.
