Drums Skill

Something New to the Late Night Expansion Pack is the drums skill. The Sims 3 base game introduced the Guitar and all the skills and abilities that go with it like performing for tips. Drums is handled in exactly the same way, with the addition of Bands of course, which is also new to Late Night. You will need to pick up a drum kit in buy mode for your aspiring musician, it is the tool they need to learn. If you place it in your Sims inventory it's with them wherever they go. Playing the drums is a great ice breaker with other Sims and once you have learned a bit you can play for tips.

Sheet Music is musical compositions that can be purchased at the bookstore. Once a Sim reaches certain levels they are able to learn the sheet music. Once you practice and become a learned bass player you may be invited to play for parties and other venues. You can make Money for the household by taking these opportunities. Once your Sim reaches level 5 of the drum skill they are able to perform for other Sims and also start playing more seriously, performing music other Sims enjoy.
