When I was young, practicing a musical instrument seemed tiring and tedious. Yet now, as an adult, I’m very interested in practicing an instrument over and over again. Of course, the key difference is that I didn’t have Clarinet Hero or Concert Band on the SNES when I was a kid. I wonder how many new musicians, abortive and lifetime alike, Rock Band will spawn. I don’t know of a single person that doesn’t like some form of music, but enjoying music and playing it tend to be two different things. Harmonix is doing a beautiful thing by making music more accessible to the mere mortals. It doesn’t hurt that they’re making assloads of money at the same time.
