backround: i play drums, have for 5 years, mostly jazz ska and metal

 

coming home from school, my father said we were going to the music centre because i wanted to pick up some stick. well we got there, and sitting in the window is a gibraltar double bass pedal. 175 dollars, which is a little over half price, because they were a right handed set that a left handed guy bought without realising so they were used. now, my father gave me two options, gta or the pedal. i have wanted a double pedal for nigh on a year now and, well, gave up GTA 4, untill at least a motnh after realease.

Yes you did. Playing an instrument is a very rewarding thing, and that pedal will be with you for years. GTA IV is eventually going to be replaced by GTA V.

That's up to you! I play guitar and if I found a guitar I always wanted i'd choose it over GTA so yeah IMO you made the right decision...you can always get GTA later. I probably won't have a while after launch..no biggie

 

 

EDIT: The guy above me is 100% right.

 

 

EDIT #2: Don't listen to the nerds who live for GTA...Like I said IMO you made the right decision.

You did the right thing m8.

 

Sounds like music is your passion so it was the way to go.

 

Because as much as GTA IS is one of the greatest thing to bless the earth we live on. Real Life activities mean more in the long run.

You made the right decision. Games will come and go, but music is something that will stay with you forever.

The fact you bought it shows you made the right desicion. GTA is only a game, it'll be out long after that pedal goes off sale.

Don't worry man, GTA IV is only $60. You will get it eventually. That pedal was more expensive so if you had your dad buy GTA IV for you instead, it would have been a lot harder to save up for the pedal and get someone to buy it for you.

okay...then it was better to buy the pedals I think!

 

I mean you can also get the game later (I suggest..oO).

 

So yeah, I also love music and the pedals are a long-time investment!

Too bad those rebate cheques are only due for June (I think...)

 

There comes a time when you have to give up the fun for your future. Perhaps this was one of them. It's also dependent on your level of a GTA fan. Obviously you're not THAT big, if you waited for so long you might as well have waited for the pedal just a little longer (that is, if you are a big GTA fan).

oh yeah, jazz and metal... crappy... riiiiiiiight... consider the following... without jazz, there is no rap, there is no rock. hmm intersting i know...

 

metal=the only current form of music to survive decades...

 

 

hmm but then again, im sure you just like boppin along to your corporate manufacture emo/rap/rnb what have you...

 

go listen to clear channel and try to stay out of the way till you develope a knowledge of music.
