Re: Can the Guitar Hero Video Game Teach Teens to Love Technically Important Music?
Not being a Video Game person I played Guitar Hero for the first time this weekend with my nephew. The good news... kids are being exposed to music they'd never hear otherwise. "What's Sunshine of your Love?"
The bad news... playing the game really has nothing to do with music... if you blot out the music and press the colored buttons you do much better. I've played guitar for many many years and found myself keeping time as I went through the 'course'.
Just thought I throw my 2.1 cents in.
Tp Paraphrase FZ... "The music industry isn't dead, it just smells funny!"
