Rock Band

Filed Under Music Mix Up 

Glad to hear everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving here in the States, I am sad it is all over.

But as for my fine feathered gamer friends Rock Band has finally arrived and man is it fun to play! You have a choice to play either drums, guitar, bass/rhythm or you can sing! I have to say that the drums are freaking hard to play but they are fun, a lot of fun. The singing is another story… On an Easy level of difficulty you can pull it off but even for someone who has had some singing experience it can be difficult to get the right pitch on a Medium difficulty level. Either way no matter what I must say they have out done themselves with this game, no matter what your age or gender this is a blast to play with family and friends.

Check out the set list in no particular order:

  1. “Are You Gonna Be My Girl” – Jet
