Re: the guitar hero effect
Personally I see those games and want to vomit. But if it helps the learning process then I'm all for it. But still.... When I was taking drum lessons years ago when cavemen ruled, all we had were practice pads, sticks, books, and a wind-up metronome.
If it helps a kid or sparks a passion then I'm all for it. But don't expect that just because you can play well on a toy you can actually play the real thing well. That's my beef. Maybe I'm reading too much into this????
I don't aim to be the best, just the best looking.
