If you're wondering whether Rocksmith 2014 can teach you to play guitar with no prior experience, the answer is a resounding yes. It's not going to teach you perfect technique, but it will get you started on the basics. You'll likely need to suplement it with youtube lessons (I highly recommend justinguitar), or in person lessons - but they're not necessary to have a good time, and pick up some basic skills.

It provides the motivation, enjoyment and sense of progression to keep you playing (and learning), and while I'm by no means "good" after 100+ hours, I'm definitely learning, improving, and having a lot of fun. Sometimes I even sound good while doing it! This was a great buy, well worth picking up. The cable can be hard to track down (and is required, no-cable methods just don't work properly), so check you can get one before buying the game.

Very fun. Use a real instrument. Play along. Get better t plucking strings.

useless without the tone cable, but I GOT the ps3 version a while ago, so this in a sale was a good purchase for me.

I've been playing this game pretty steadily since mid-February of this year, and there are things I really like, and things I really don't like about it. Rocksmith gets you playing, and it has a lot of good technique games to make learning fun. And the Riff Repeater is basically ♥♥♥♥ing magic. But ultimately, its strength is also its weakness; the game format encourages rapid improvement at the expense of proper technique. This isn't an explicit thing, but rather a side effect of the edutainment approach. Naturally, one would want to improve their mastery score, or go for high scores in the Guitarcade games. But since the game is very forgiving about note inputs and only cares about the input frequency, it's easy for a player to develop bad habits and techniques that become obstacles as they become more advanced players. You can nail a song at 110% mastery, but if you play with the backing track off, you may notice that your technique may not sound as good as you thought. The game has some basic technique videos, but again, they don't actually go into any sort of detail or explain any kind of nuance. As a result, one can easily fill in the blanks with improper technique and develop bad habits that they would need to unlearn.

Another thing I don't like is that it doesn't go far enough into the theory concepts. I like that it focuses on scales and modes so strongly, but it doesn't go far enough in my opinion. It doesn't explain anything about intervals, how the scales are created from them, how the modes are formed from the different keys, or any of that fun theory stuff. And it completely falls flat (har har) when it comes to chords. I appreciate that it shows the chord names in-game, but it doesn't even go into how the chords are constructed? Seems like a pretty glaring omission to me. Like, why is this set of notes called G#Maj7(add9)? Ultimately, I have to echo a statement I read about the game elsewhere: it gets you playing guitar, but it doesn't really make you a better musician (although I will say that session mode and practicing scales is a great start).

Don't get me wrong--I love the game to death. Got me playing my bass again after all these years. But Rocksmith shouldn't be your only learning tool; you need to go beyond the game and seek out technique videos or one-on-one instruction if you really want to get your playing to the next level.

This is a great game to kickstart the path to learning guitar, and although it doesn't offer much music theory, or even advanced teachings like jazz arpeggios or sweep picking, its an amazing way to get you started.

I would suggest supplementing this game with actual guitar lessons, so you don't create bad habits, as well as trying to learn songs through tabs outside of the game, and even just looking up guitar lessons on sites like youtube.

One of the few Ubisoft games that I actually like. really teaches you how to play Bass/Guitar and with CDLC you can play most if not all your favorite bands. The only thing it will not teach you is music theory or how to read sheet music but besides that this is perfect for a beginner and want to learn at your own pace then this is perfect for you

I highly recommend the game for musicians or anyone interested
although as a metalhead, there could A LOT more metal bands
and rock bands like "Rival Sons" "Kadavar" "Trivium" "Suicide Silence" "Parkway Drive" and "Arch Enemy"
Deathmetal, deathcore, grindcore or generally PURE FOCKING METAL!
since it's more "soft" rock

other than that, it's awesome!

This game is a steaming pile of garbage when it comes to user friendliness. You can have the adequate level of hardware and still this game is darn near unplayable out of the box. Instead of just patching this piece of crap to fix the issues, Ubisoft posts guides on how to go edit the rocksmith.ini file. That is absolutely absurd; as a software company you should be utterly ashamed that you would have to instruct a customer to do that. I forgot how I initially fixed the 90% distorted sound way back when I first bought this crap software. So I started having trouble with the RealCrap cable picking up my guitar during calibration for a second profile I was setting up for lead guitar. I reinstall the game, and now the sound distortion issue is back. Don't buy anything from this joke of a company. Their glory days are long passed.

Learning guitar can be incredibly hard.

One of the hardest parts is figuring out why does it say miss when I play it right.

Amazing game to add to your guitar practice routine. I wouldn't recommend relying solely on Rocksmith to further your guitar playing, but if used in addition to normal practice, it's a great tool to either introduce the basic fundamentals to beginners, polish up some skills for more intermediate players or just to have some fun and learn some songs. Learning songs is very easy as you can slow down the songs or simplify them until you're comfortable enough to move up in difficulty/ speed. The ever-expanding library of available songs to add to your playlist is huge and you'll definitely find something to suit your tastes in the vast selection of DLC songs.

The only small problem I've come across is in the dropped tunings (mainly Drop C), where the low notes don't always register.

Overall 9.5/10

Self taught for years, just from 2 hours played I have leared way more. Definately pick it up, especially because it is on sale. The cord is expensive, but worth it.
