Anytime there's something on about guitar playing its either Slash, Satriani, Clapton, Vai, Santana or some other 70's-80's guitar guru. No wonder the young people don't listen to it, its shit their dad's listen to.
By the way f*ck Moron 5, Coldplay, Lil Wayne, One Direction, Foo Fighters and that ga damned Gangnam Style mofo.
You can blame this on the hip hop, sampling video game generation. People are too lazy to actually pick up an instrument and have the dicipline to takes to become a master.
The sad thing is, there are probably thousands out there that have the ability but don't even realize it because it is so much easier to sample and scratch rather than actually develope talent.
