Re: the guitar hero effect
I have to say that if it wasn't for Rock Band I might never have started playing drums. It was always something I wanted to do, but never got around to it, like learning another language. I got sooo addicted to playing Rock Band that it turned into me buying a drum set and learning for real. So maybe its not exactly the same as playing on a real kit, but I think it can definetly spark some interest. That was a year ago, and now I can't imagine my life without drums!
