Anyone else have this and three friends?

I do!

We started a band a few nights ago and have been clamoring to play it together ever since...does anyone else have the problem of having one really, really good player amongst a bunch of average ones?

I ask because I'm really good at guitar and I can sing most songs on Hard (if i know them)...but my friend can sing, drum AND play guitar, all on expert, and all much better than everyone else. He'll usually have to sing and drum at the same time if we can't do it. Our lineup is me on guitar, another friend on bass, and this marvelous man on drums/singing/drums and singing. The thing is, we have about eight people altogether in the band, just switching out and whatnot.

It's really easy, but we got over 1,000,000 points on In Bloom :D

My favorite song to sing is Maps :D

We're stuck right now on a few songs, namely Reptilia (can't match the vocals) and Dead On Arrival.

I actually didn't know the game gave the option to sing while playing another instrument. Or does it count as two seperate players?

It's just two separate players; one of us holds up the mic to his mouth while he plays drums. I think the game comes with a mic stand, but the owner doesn't have it?

I played Rock Band last night for the first time, and while it's way better than Guitar Hero (a game I can't get into) since you actually get to do Karaoke with it I still wish there was an alternate version of the games for real musicians. Yes, I realize I probably sound like the old dad in that SP episode or something when he tries showing the kids how he can play a real guitar... but damnit, if they made a version of this game with a REAL guitar instead of the stupid 5-button shit, I'd be all over that.

I was in a Japanese arcade a few weeks back and they had a game like this with a full piano keyboard that you had to play and I thought it was great because it's actually teaching people to learn an instrument while they play. So I see no reason why somebody couldn't do a game like this for real guitarists. It'd be such a great way to get people to learn to play real instruments.

I guess it's a lot like Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing... learning typing isn't a fun thing, but the Mavis Beacon program made it fun and as a result I eventually became speedy as hell. I can only imagine what a game that makes learning to play a real guitar fun like that would do for a person's skills.

(btw, if such a game does already exist, I'm unaware of it, so please lemme know)

I totally agree. There's this arcade game out there that has an eletric drum kit and it just plays mp3's and you play along. It's really fun but it's not really a game, more just a jukebox with drums attached. If they added some kind of target beat keeping or something then I'd be all over it.
For that matter, why the hell hasn't there been an arcade version of GH? Mario kart arcade worked out ok.

Mavis Beacon's a dirty slut of a keyboard instructor. But I'll be damned if I don't love her for it

There's some kind of guitar arcade game out there. My brother used to play it all the time before GH came out.
