Default Re: Can the Guitar Hero Video Game Teach Teens to Love Technically Important Music?

Jerry,

I don't know if it will work. The Music Industry has long ignored the truly talented young people out there. You can take a trip to Chicago, New Orleans, or Austin and find technically talented musicians. In fact one weekend in Austin I saw 3 different guitarists who if found in the 70s with their abilities would be made into instant Rock Stars.

The music labels know they exist they just don't care.

One of these kids Doyle Bramhall Jr once had a platinum album with his band the Arc Angels and has toured with Roger Waters from Pink Floyd.

They do really nothing to support that talent. It's already out there. They just don't care.
