Ugh, stop twitching
rock band
music Posted 2007-11-30 00:50:53 by Jim Crawford
I played Rock Band a lot over Thanksgiving, mostly solo. What excited me most about it was that it essentially teaches you to play drums. You're going to be missing out on a lot of technique, like rolls and, uh, dynamics, but one of the hardest parts of drumming on a kit, hand and foot independence, is all there in the game. With the Pavlovian reward system of a well-designed game, I've made a lot of progress really quickly here, which is exactly what I was hoping for.

I'm also at #13 on the vocal career score leaderboards. I wish I knew how many people I was singing better than, but I can't find the interface, if it exists, to seek to the end of the list. For reference, though, there are about 60000 people on the drumming leaderboards. Thing is, I'm really not that good a performer; I'm just really good at remembering and matching pitches, with no emotion whatsoever. A lot like Liz Enthusiasm of Freezepop.
