Trying the demo to decide if i want to invest in the game but apparantly you MUST have the Rocksmith Realtone cable or it won't work. I have a jack to usb cable that i use with GarageBand but can't get past the strum. On the upside it only took about 1.5 hours to download.

One of my room mates conveniently has a guitar and the proper cable and just never used them, so here I am! I actually feel like I'm learning how to play the guitar as opposed to "This is a chord. Play it!" which is what I encountered before. Ducks is fun and I think I'm actually learning which fret is which, albeit slowly.

And Red Fang is friggin' AWESOME.

Stupid - I have a nice guitar-to-USB cable but cannot use it to try this demo. Instead, I have to buy the propriety cable before knowing if I would like to pay for the full product?
Dear Rocksmith publisher, dear Steam guys - this makes completely no sense. Even with available demo still no idea if this is a useful peace of software for me. Count me out!

No playing without special Cable Hardware !
this is a NO GO i think, I download the Demo version just to test the game und have to buy the cabel for about 30 € ??? the idea of demo is totaly gone. If you owen the firt rocksmith and you already had a cable, you dont need the demo version because you know the game is good. But If you wanna try the game bacause you own a Guitar, the cable is a must ? no no no this is ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ ! i maybe pay 2,99 for a Demoversion but not 30 € to ran JUST a demoversion. it kills the idea of Demo. pls Ubisoft think about, Demo with just mircophone or line In

if you want to get the full or 2014 version try this first you will need a cable($30-$40) or some downoadable software off google(free) and a guitar or bass of course. if you dont like it then you might have better luck with tabs or some other method but this is probably the easiest way to learn electric guitar or bass.(yes you read it BASS GUITAR)
