It's been about 6 months since I published my first Destructoid blog: http://www.destructoid.com/how-rock-band-can-teach-you-to-play-real-drums-192539.phtml
. Spurred on by a mostly positive reaction and success using this method with my own drum students, I've created a number of color-coded drum charts detailed in the first blog.
5 of these drum charts available as free downloadable PDFs in 4 different levels (Easy, Medium, Hard, and Expert): Are You Gonna Be My Girl�Jet, In Bloom�Nirvana, Say It Ain't So�Weezer, Vasoline�STP, and Learn to Fly�Foo Fighters. http://andyziker.com/media/#drumscores
I don't want to seem pushy, but many of you Rock Band drum players out there are much better prepared than most to learn how to play real drums. All you need is an acoustic or electronic drumset, a private drum teacher, a beginner's drum instruction book (please consider the drum books that I've written), and my Rock Band drum charts. You will be rocking for real in no time at all.
I understand how fun it is to play Rock Band of Guitar Hero World Tour. However, believe me, there is nothing like playing in a real band in front of an appreciative crowd. You can do it too!
