Almost a year of guitar traditional practice and I still didn't feel like I was getting anywhere. Watched reviews of RS on youtube and various other sites and got interested. Bought it, got the cord, started playing and love it. The game is engaging and makes you feel like you are both learning to play and have so much more to learn. Even when I'm frustrated with a few lines, can't quite hit the notes/chords, not fast enough to swith, the game is still fun. I assume in an effort to be nice, the game offered to let me lower the quality needed to play an event, but when I refused, I was able to play more and beat the trouble area of the song.
Pro's: Very engaging, learning and remembering parts of songs, challenging but varies to meet my skill by song and by area of the song. Huge amount of fun, want to play more often than I really can.
Con's: Song selection - Not bad at all, but wish I could get more of the music I love in the game. Would love a tool that allowed users to add music to the game. Instructions are ok for useage of the playing features but not very good for tones and pedals/amps from what I've seen. As a beginer, I'd love more info on what effects are available and when to use them as well as info onpedals and amp styles.
Overall, I love the game and recommend it for anyone wanting to learn to play.
