Oh my goodness…

I love music, I love to listen to everything under the sun, I just love music. Over the course of my life I have tried learning an instrument or 2, yet for one reason or another have never carried through to where I could even pick up right now and play. I dont think any less of myself, I dont have any regrets of not learning to play. With that being said I love Rock Band! I understand that the instruments in this game are not real, and I could not walk into Guitar Center pick up a guitar and start wailing away.

I came across a story on 1up concerning John Mayer and Guitar Hero, and found myself offended.http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3168109

I will never as they pointed out stand in front of a cheering crowd, but so what! I realize that, it doesnt make me any less of a person, because I cannot really play the drums professionally or even in a garage with friends. What is wrong with this game, and there are so many of us out there that realize it is just that, a game, Mr Mayer, giving us huge gratification. Perhaps we get a glimpse of what it would feel like to stand up on that stage as your huge elitist self proclaims, without putting anything into it. Does it somehow make you feel less secure in your chosen life because I can stand in front of a T.V. and play to an imaginary crowd who every fifth person I realize is the same character just redrawn to give the feel of a larger audience.

*note to self* do not buy John Mayer albums
