I'm starting a new job soon and moving to a larger house which eventually I want to put a drum kit and get some lessons from a professional, as I've always wanted to learn how to play the drums.

Here's the question, is it worth starting on guitar hero world tour drums or rockband? I guess it would help with co-ordination etc. Keeping an eye out for any deals, not wanting to spend above 80quid at the moment. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Cheers!

At the moment you can pick up the rockband instrument pack for £50 from asda, or just the drums for £30 from choices (Search deals to be sure).

Rockband can be found for about £10-20 (Someone found it in Currys I think? Search again lol).

Hope that's a little bit of use!

Being a drummer myself I would perhaps recommend watching videos on Youtube on technique. If you start playing on these games they are fairly helpful for the basics, but you may pick up some bad habits in terms of stick technique. It is up to you however and this is just advice.

Agreed, they are ok for kids or just fun but if you are serious you have to start serious and that means timing, the timing on these things is never the same as actually playing, my husband is a drummer/guitarist/singer and has been for many years he says get a practice kit, just a small second hand kit to get the feel, put on some headphones and play along to the music, this is a good 'teach yourself' way and he has taught my both daughters to play this way

Thanks for the advice. I think I will wait until I move and keep an eye out for some second hand drums. Cross fingers a new deal will pop up!

Thanks both for the advice :thumbsup:

Also, as well as what youngflyer said, make sure you buy a metronome to play along to. This will really improve your timing, which is incredibly important to build up when drumming.
