yeah, I got pretty good too.I loved the rock band/Guitar Hero games etc. I think on alot of the real drum kits (i say 'real', but you know what I mean) you can use an adapter to plug into your brain/PS3 etc and play those games if one were so inclined..
one thing I definitely want to learn is all the techniques, rolls, rudiments, paradiddles (Sp?) etc to apply around the kit. and learn to read music.
I'm treating this as a completely new instrument/starting from scratch. I'm going to have patience etc, and probably take lessons shortly after getting used to handling the sticks, striking, etc.
