I am so thankful that they didn't develop these games before I took an interest in playing music.

You'ld think so, wouldnt you? I sure did but recent reports are suggesting that kids are turning to 'real' instruments after being introduced to the fake styles of playing from Guitar Hero and Rock Band.

I wonder if Velvet has had any of his young students say to him "Yeah, I started out on Rock Band but soon wanted to switch to the harder stuff once I mastered Iron Maiden on the Advanced level." or something along those lines.
