Today all you need is a game console, a spcialized controller and you can become a veritable rock star. Games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band have literally turned millions of people into hard-rocking, headbanging, stage-diving heavy metal gods. The games surely do rock, but the surprising thing about all of this is that millions of people have suddenly become intersted in playing real instruments as well! Being a guitar hero on a game console in your living room is one thing, but rocking out on stage with the real thing has no equal.
Like playing drums on Rock Band? Why not use a premium drum kit like ION Audio’s Drum Rocker for PS3 or XBOX? It’s set up like a real drum kit and feels much more like one too! Getting your hand and foot coordination down can really help out then if you’re ready to move on to a real drum set. Guitar and Bass are no different. Even though a game controller has no strings or frets, getting good at moving your fingers quickly and independently can really help make them more agile when you’re ready to tackle the real deal. So why not give it a shot? The truth is, studies show that learning music can actually benefit the mind in many different ways. And lets not forget…nothing rocks more than a guitar hanging off your shoulders, or twirling a pair of drum sticks between your fingers. So all you gamers out there, go ahead…rock on.
