Nine in the Afternoon

I got my first 100% on Rock Band the other night playing the song Nine in the Afternoon by Panic at the Disco.

I've been dabbling at the drums for about two years now--can't do guitar, and there's no way I'm doing vocals!

But finally, finally I was able to play a song without missing a single note. Granted, I'm still on the 'easy' level, but I was happy to finally get 100%.

Now my younger daughter regularly scores 100% at the hard and occasionally the expert level. I don't know if I'll ever crank up my skills that much--I don't really spend enough time playing.

But I have fun playing with my kids & doing something they enjoy.

These are REAL drums??? or just a game?

Somehow I have a hard time picturing you sitting at a set of drums with your head bobbing and your hair flying all over the place (maybe when you were 25) - hmmm, please tell me it is a game . . . please . . . LOL
Love, Mom

Yes, it's a game--

Four round pads and a foot pedal and I smack the pad that corresponds to the color on the TV screen.

Lots of fun.

Sounds like fun. I haven't tried it yet.
