I'd just like to get something off my cheat. If you can play Rock Band drums on any difficulty please don't think you can play drums for real and giant spaghetti (god) please don't tell me you can. Yes it develops skills that can help you further your drumming skills like timing, speed (thrash pack is pretty crazy), and general coordination but it is nothing compared to being on a set. Not that I'm being a dick but if you say "Hey man i can beat Tom Sawyer on expert" it means little com pared to learning the song. And if you say otherwise put it on the set and we'll see who's philosophy is better.
