Rock Band 3 could use a little keytar
by Mark R
Nothing I like more than a game of Rock Band. I’ve been playing Rock Band 2 with my family for quite a while, and it doesn’t shock me at all that Rock Band 3 is coming this holiday.
Of course, I don’t see how it could be any different. I mean, look at the logo. There’s the Bass, Drum, Guitar, Mic, and….whoa….is that a keyboard?
Yes, it is, and there are many rumors going around about the addition of a piano, harpsichord, pipe organ, or whatever keyboard instrument will be added to Rock Band 3, but it most are hinting to a keytar.
That’s right, the keytar, the pivotal music instrument of the eighties, is here. I can’t help but wonder if the player will hit several keys, or just a few. I think we all know that, with the exception of the mic, usually the instrument is limited to five frets hit at any given time.
Something tells me that the company will probably unveil what particular instrument it will be at E3 Expo in Los Angeles on June 15-17. I plan to be there, and I can’t wait to see if those old grammar school piano lessons will help me play the keytar, or whatever instrument it will be.
