I have been playing guitar and singing since I was 7. I even owned a drum kit back in the early 90s but never learned how to play it beyond just jamming with some friends in my parents garage. Since the evolution of RockBand (and the subsequent revision of the new drumset in GuitarHero), I started taking lessons and bought a new Mapex kit. I am so happy and enjoy playing drums so much now. I dont play GH or RB much any more because I spend that time playing my real kit, but I am thankful that these games helped get me into playing drums, now in my mid-30s.
