Okay, so we haven't totally lost our minds...yet, but we did break down and purchase the Rock Band kit for the Xbox 360 and ever since, have rocked out on the drums and electric guitar. Andrew is the drummer (he actually is in real life too) and I play the guitar (or "concawr") as Emily has taken to calling it.
I had my doubts when Andrew first suggested that we might like this. After all, I couldn't figure out (as a "real" musician) how this could work, but I have to admit that it GREAT fun and VERY addicting. I can totally understand how teens and twenty-something college students can get into this. Not to mention, if I had all the time in the world, how awesome I could be on the pretend guitar. Seriously, I would rock!
So, if I'm not around much, or if you ever hear of this weird band called The Way-Cool Shredders" (Looonnngggg story) touring near you....you'll know how it all started.
I have tried (valiantly, I might add) to add the YouTube video directly to this post, but I can't figure it out. (It's not of anyone we know, just a good way to get a feel for the game.) Here is the link instead....
