Music: Dani California

Learning to play the fake plastic drums on Rock Band takes some practice. Not nearly as much as playing real drums, obviously, but there's still a learning curve there that needs to be climbed. The breakthrough song for me, where I realized I had gotten pretty good at the game, was "Dani California" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers:

The RHCP are known for their funky basslines, and "Dani California" doesn't disappoint. The rapid-fire vocals are fun to sing, of course, but the real action for me was in the chorus playing on the drums, where you alternate hits on the snare (red pad) and the crash cymbals (green pad). It's also a fun song to listen to just on its own.
