This is ridiculous. My friend is fairly decent at Rock Band drums, and he bought a drum set last Tuesday. No big deal, but he's always like, "I'm gonna be good because I'm amazing at Rock Band." Somehow him and two other people formed a band Sunday and are having a concert at a legit place next Sunday. Can't have notecharts scrolling across the crowd.

You realize that in the sense of "oh i'm good at ____ so i'll be got at the real thing" rockband/guitar hero guitar and drums are different things?

You can learn basic drums good enough through rockband/guitar hero to be at the least competant. Of course it wont be the same exact thing but you learn the basics of separating your limbs.

So he was inspired by a video game to take up the real thing? Sounds pretty bitchin' to me. The ONLY possible reason you could have to be against this is your jealousy, which lingers around your words like a bad perfume.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

So, who cares? if they're good enough to play some songs then let them do what they want. If he can't play then he'll look like an ass and that will be the end of that. At least he's trying.

I don't see any jealousy.
I agree with it. He can not possibly be able to memorize anything within only playing for a week. Rock band is nothing like the actual instument.
#21
Wait, they have a gig after being real musicians for a few days? Sweet, they're probably a pretty badass punk band.

Ha I know because Rush and System of a Down are soooo punk. And Chop Suey, Tom Sawyer, Limelight, YYZ, BYOB are teh greatest songs evar

You're forgetting the point. Rush and SOAD have people that are semi-musicians that are "drummers"
#27
i can kind of appreciate what things like rockband and guitar hero do.. its an indirect aspiration to the real thing. lots of people figure they can't play real guitar or drums.. so they go for the video game.

while pretty far from the real thing, its still pretty fun.. and if it leads to them wanting to play the real thing, all the better. The world needs more musicians.


despite all that, i'm freaking horrible at both of those games for some reason

Yes, I recently bought a drum kit and it's about 100 times harder than it looks - although I was never one of those pricks claiming that drumming is easy. It is more fun to pick up and play (not literally, of course) than my guitar though.


And good on the TS' friend - hopefully it isn't a fad, rather he wants to actually learn it properly.

Although, I'm surprised to see them get a gig a week after forming...have you heard them play? Maybe they're amazing.

Dude, your mate is actually one of the good things to come about from this ****ty trend of RB/GH... If he chooses to actually take up an instrument because of it, I'm glad, and you should be too. I hate nothing worse than when someone brags about their skills on the plastic controllers, but if they then pick up a guitar and actually see how it is- and put it to good use, well, more power to them.

TS, what's your problemo?

That's actually how I got interested in guitars. The first Guitar Hero that came out for the PS2 many years ago was what got me interested. I played Iron Man at the local store and I wanted the game so badly. But, my dad being a hardcore musician (pianist) told me I could only get it AFTER playing a real guitar for 6 months. So we went across the street to a guitar center.....

.....6 months after that, I decided I didn't need GH :P
