i too find the rock band drums kind of hard. i find it very odd having just 4 heads all angled and non-adjustable, and the foot pedal isn't exactly in the best position either. i play guitar and drums and the guitar didn't take as much time to get used to, the drums on the other hand just throws me off in many ways. 3 of the heads keep switching from cymbals to toms, and none of them are in my usual position. i really wish they had used a roland or yamaha (style) electronic kit, it wouldn't be that difficult having 6-8 sequences over the 5 they have now. nonetheless, i still have fun playing it and will get good at it hopefully.
