Rock band

Last night we went to Scott and April's house to play Rock Band. It is an Xbox 360 game we play with toy drums, guitars and microphones. Darren and I never really got into rock music, we must have been more top 40 kind of teenagers, but Cary revisited his hey day with songs like Dani California by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Won't Get Fooled Again by the Who,
Tom Sawyer by Rush.

You watch the screen to know what notes to play and it has a karioke like banner across the top to sing along with the band.

The game moves along rather quickly and everyone is following their parts.

I believe piano players and violinist have an unfair advantage to those of us who aren't so musically inclined.
Scott's advantage is that he is Scott.

Eventually we all rotate through each instrument, until you find one you can win with.Posted by Picasa

Scores are pretty good here!

Our friends lent us Guitar Hero for the Wii, which was pretty fun. Evan beat the game--on easy mode. I've heard about this whole band game, though. Looks awesome!

That looks like so much fun. I miss hanging out with you all.

Now that looks like a game I would definitely not be good at!

Did someone say Red Hot Chili Peppers? Ooooh, love them (at least the newer stuff).

Thanks for checking out my blog. It looks like you guys have a fun life. I'd love to try Rock Band-it looks like a riot.
How did you set up your music widget? It's way better than others I've seen.

What was Darren's score? Was he player 2,3, or 4? Or is that 3, 1, and 4? Well, whatever..

Hey, I hope it's Ok that I am peeking at your blog (in my defense April said I could). It looks like you guys had so much fun. That game is totally addicting! It is awesome for people like me who no muscial ability whatsoever, but who have always wished they did. Now if I could only learn to play with my mouth shut...
