3 Heavy Weights Weigh in on GH4 with Drums!
Videos are now beginning to circulate from Guitar Hero’s website which feature Chad Smith, Stewart Copeland, and Travis Barker all weighing in on Guitar Hero’s new drums feature.
Chad Smith is stoked about the idea and loves the thing: “It’s a real as you can get. For a Video game, it’s impressive. If it holds up to me beating on it, it should be pretty good.”
It looks as if Travis Barker does some motion capture for the game. “One of the things I has actually said when I was asked to be involved with this was, ‘will it be an exact interpretation of what that drummer is playing? Can I close my eyes and play a song I wrote the drum part for and socre a perfect score if I’m playing it right?’ And it was, ‘yes.'”
Man .. at first I wasn’t at all into this idea, but now I can see myself getting excited for it. I am cautiously optimistic.
Thanks to Big Drum Thump.

My question is where is the hi-hat? If it’s one of the drums, I’m unimpressed.

Drums are way more suited for this type of game then guitar.
after-all we’ve had electronic drums for years. All they’ve done here is take an electronic drum-set and rig it to work with a game console.

I think the HH is the left cymbal pad.
