Topic: Joe In a Video Game?!?
Being of the generation of where everybody plays video games, the Guitar Hero series and the new Rock Band is making a major impact. Never before has a music game ever been this popular, and it's now one of the hottest games of all time.
For those who don't know Guitar Hero is a game where a series of colored notes comes down the screen and you attmept to play these notes at the right time by holding down the appropiately colored "fret button" and strumming a strum bar on the guitar-like controller that comes packaged with the game. The Guitar Hero series is on its third installment where as the new Rock Band game takes the experience further by adding drums and a microphone to the mix, allowing 4 people to play at once (vocals, guitar, bass, and drums). These games also feature downloadable content that players can download directly to their game system and play in the game.
So after playing a horrendous Pride & Joy cover on Guitar Hero III, I had an epiphany. I thought that if Joe got into either Guitar Hero or Rock Band, he'd be able to get exposure to a massive group of people who are potential fans. To achieve this, I sought to enlist the help of the aid of the all-mighty Bonamassa Street Team. To my knowledge, both games have forum sections dedicated to song suggestions to potentially add to the game. So if you know anybody who plays Guitar Hero or Rock Band, get them to periodically make a post suggesting Bonamassa, or just blues in general would be helpful.
