Big Fat Guitar Hero

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

I have a new obsession.
Guitar Hero.
When it came out, I wondered how fun something like this could be. It seemed a little cheesy. But I'm all about games and I thought it would be fun for the whole family.
So I bought it. And boy is it fun. We play for hours. The kids are seriously good on the guitar, the hubby can sing and I can hit things, so they threw me on drums. I'm actually getting pretty good. I'm up to "medium" difficulty on most songs.
And being the nerd I am, I read up a little on the whole drumming thing. I Googled "Guitar Hero Drum Techniques" and "Guitar Hero Drum Lesson" and I found that some crazy bad ass professional drummers designed the set to actually work like real drumming. WEIRD!
I also found that "playing an instrument" is listed in Cardio in Spark.
Oh Yea.
I've found a way to play with my kids and burn some calories.
I've lost almost 2 pounds!!!
And I have better hand eye coordination.
