Rock Band is A-Fantanstic

What a great game. Pricey at $170, you get a wireless guitar1, a set of 4 drums with foot pedal and a mic.

So you get to play solo as a drummer, singer, guitarist or bassist. Add some friends and you can form a band, go on tour, earn fans and get new stuffages.

I just unlocked “Timmy and the Lords of the Underworld.” How freakin’ cool is that?

I can’t do 100% on any song in Easy mode yet. Sometimes there are too many notes for me to keep up, other times there are notes on the up beat and my lack of musical sense triggers a brain freeze.

However, when I do complete a hard section, it is a really awesome rush of fun and it makes me look forward to getting better and playing on the harder levels.

We like this game so much we’ve already bought some more songs. My Sharona wore a blister on my thumb. I’m now taped up.

Rock Band for the PS 3 gets an A+.

[1]: I think the xbox guitar is wired, but for my PS3 it is wireless.


  1. “My Sharona wore a blister on my thumb.”

    Reminds me of John Lennon yelling at the end of “Helter Skelter,” “I’ve got blisters on my fingers!”
