For a few years I have been an avid Rock Band 3 player. For the last year, I have been taking more and more interest in playing drums on the game. My favourite bands to play on the game right now are Metallica and Dream Theater.
Even without the cymbal extension (so base pedal and 4 pads), this already feels very realistic. Definitely more so than playing the guitar on the game would.
I have been enjoying this so much that I am considering buying an electric drumkit, but I am holding it off, mostly due to space issues.
For the time being, playing Rock Band it is.
I wonder though, would there be lots of things I would have to relearn when/if I would switch to a real drumkit? In other words, how effective is playing Rock Band (on expert level of course) for actually learning to play drums?
