VC Guitar Hero Audio Issue

Hey all! I'm a huge fan of the Guitar Hero games and was a large factor in purchasing my Wii U in the last couple of months. However, I am having issues with all of them as Virtual Console injects. This is my preferred way to play them, as for one its the easiest to use, but I also can't use USB Loader GX on the vWii because my USB hard drive is formatted for the Wii U. I had so many issues trying to get the USB hard drive on USB Loader GX on my actual Wii (which I have since sold), that I didn't want to go through the nightmare of trying to figure out again. I do have WiiFlow, which allows me to use my SD card to play games off of and works for the most part, except that games like GH Van Halen, just goes to a black screen and freezes the console entirely, forcing me to unplug the system and plug it back in. It won't even turn off holding the power button for several minutes. However, the Virtual Console Van Halen works fine, with the caveat of the audio sync issue.

This issue happens at different points during any song on any of the virtual console Guitar Hero games. I haven't tried RockBand yet, but if that would be a valuable test I can do that. What this glitch does is it will stutter the audio where the notes aren't even close to where the song playing is, and makes the game unplayable. I put together a video of this, recorded through my capture card to show the issue. It works exactly the same without the capture card, and I've changed my TV and Wii U settings a bunch to try and fix this, yet nothing has worked. So it has to be something with the VC inject or some sort of software thing that should be able to be fixed. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to diagnose this better, I really want to get to the bottom of this so I can continue enjoying these games that I have been so eager to play :)
