Ever since I was little I've been interested in playing instruments. In fourth grade I started playing the flute. The flute left me dizzy and out of breath, so i stopped playing. In fifth grade I switched to the clarinet. I played the clarinet for a few years and actually got pretty good at it. In high school I stopped playing, but borrowed my friends viola and really fell in love with it, but not enough to take lessons. In college I took a guitar class and loved playing it in my dorm room...annoying my neighbors, but it was too big of a stretch for my little fingers! and caluses? no, thanks! My flute, clarinet, viola and guitar career was officially over!.....UNTIL NOW!
Over the weekend, I visited my friend Erin in Akron. She has confessed to me on multiple occasions that she just loves the game called "Rock Band"...and a few times she has even answered my call while playing...and we had to talk over the loud rock music. For those of you that don't know....Rock Band is a video game that comes with a guitar, drum kit and even a microphone. Now, you don't necessarily need people to play every instrument, you can play alone, but it's just a lot more fun to have a "full" band. So, the game offers tons of rock songs to choose from. Each instrument has different color-coded keys or pads, in the drum's case, that you hit whenever that same color pops up on the TV screen during the game. I knew I would like the game because of my history with instruments...but I didn't realize how much I would absolutely LOVE IT!!! I love it so much that now I intend on buying the game and all of the instruments to go with it! I can't wait!
By the way, if you're wondering what my favorite instrument is to play on Rock Band...it's the drums! I haven't made it past the Easy level...but I'm working my way up! My favorite song to play, so far, is "That's What You Get" by Paramore.
Leave a comment and let me know if there's other people out there who are just as intriqued as I am!!!
