Random Country Music Thoughts

I've been messing around with country music for a just-for-fun game project (long story). Two insights:

• The world needs more steel guitar. All genres, everywhere. Robert Randolph aside, we need more great musicians to take a Hendrix approach to this instrument. Country has had steel guitar all to themselves for too long.

• Special bonus insight: Imagine how cool the steel guitar controller would be on the (imaginary) Country Hero videogame. See what I mean
