This reminded me of something similar they presented at the gamescom this year..It still looked like rockband, but the guy and girl presenting it, were using real instruments..they claimed, you could learn how to play the guitar and piano with it, and the guitar had actual strings, which is pretty cool, but of course, it`ll cost a fortune, so I think I`ll just stick to my normal guitar

Yeah.. my guitar teacher told me it was really hard for him to play Rock Band and things similar because of the simplified guitar and I guess it was so stupidly simple the normal way he would play a guitar threw him off.. Heard that from other guys at the shop, too, which is part of the reason I have never played it. Kinda worried if I get too used to that sort of simple `guitar`, it`ll mess me up when I normally play a real one.

And yes, it is pretty much what we see in our heads when we play.

The guitar one wouldn`t work very well, as you`d need a way to indicate which string to press as well as which fret. But I could certainly see someone using a Rock Band-like implementation to teach people piano or drums.

I`m a drummer. I love rock band but would hardly call is practice. It`s fun though. Been drumming for years before rock band even came out. Learned it in school, took lessons. All that jive. Don`t think a game could ever replace a teacher but who knows?

The one qualm I would have with type of technology, is that people are not learning the actual `science` behind music. They`re not learning time signatures, scales, how to read sheet music, etc. Here, all they are doing is monkey see monkey do. Granted, it still takes skill. But there is a difference between playing music, and understanding music.

Rock Band actually got me into drumming. I bought the game when it first came out, and I found that I was really quite good at drums. Then I started realising that the blue drum is the hi-hat, red is the snare etc., and when I transferred the rhythms over to a real drumkit... it worked. I don`t like the assumption that games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero are stupid because they`re not like playing the real instruments, because 1. they`re games, they`re a bit of fun, and 2. they really can help with playing real instruments, especially with stuff like Pro Mode coming out for Rock Band 3.

I think if technology does advance, this would be a different and accessible way of learning instruments; I can`t play guitar, but I can play Guitar Hero on Expert: if I had a visual representation of notes coming down on a real guitar it would definitely help with learning how to play the real thing. I think with keyboards and drums, it would work even better.

Connecting real e-drums via midi to rockband = much much more fun than practicing.

This looks like it`s halfway between Rock Band and sitting down with a guitar tutor - It`s a video game that teaches you to play the instrument while you`re playing. Who says you have to use pooty plastic guitars when you play it?

Awesome. I`d rather learn an actual instrument though. Too bad I am rhythmically challenged.

"No, this couldn`t be Rock Band; it includes actual instruments and actually playing them by their actual chords."

Clearly you havent heard of Pro Mode
