EDIT: However, mainstream appeal is another story.

No.

Slash =/= Virtuosity
Quote by ChemicalFire
The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

No, but whining on the internet has gone up dramatically.

guitar virtuosity has not been brought back because of guitar hero. However, it is making its way back in to the mainstream. Bands such as avenged sevenfold (I don't care if you don't like them, he can ****ing play) have reintroduced the guitar hero. Another example I can bring is slipknot's new album. Even though I really don't like slipknot, there are still some pretty cool solos on it.

I find that people are more impressed by actual guitarskills now than there were a few years ago. I think some of that may have to do with guitarhero.

^I wouldn't call Synyster Gates or the Slipknot guy 'virtuosos' though...

Edit- guy a few posts up.
