After finally getting a god damn cable

Pros-

-It works

-Good base content with plenty of addons

-Good quality tones for the game and "signature" tones (not better than recording from amp sims or amps though)


Cons-

Steam should probably consider talking with the producers to get a way of selling the cables on steam.

Should consider the ERG market since 7 strings are becomming normal

First thing first - this is a game. If you are wondering if this game going to make you a guitarist, the short answer is no. I used to play drums, and tried to learn guitars and basses from friends before, this game helped me to learn bass to somewhat extent, but guitars - not so much. From my experiene, if you are experienced guitarist, this game will teach you the proper chords for some songs. For players with with some experience, you'll learn some more things. For noobs, well you'll learn some things, but learn from a real person to pick up things first, then come back to play this.

This is a good "game" and fun to play. But don't expect to be something in 60 days.

If you're doing your first steps on playing a guitar or if you are already a player, this can make you good in a very short time, by allowing an ever evolving interaction that drives you forward and tests your limits. In about six months I went from zero until being able to play the most known riff from rolling stones "I can't get no satisfaction" without many hick-ups. That along with 23 other songs I play regularly. I cannot recommend this game enough, if you want to learn guitar, become good fast, or even practice your skills, this game is most definitelly for you!

I purchased this software 3 months before my 49th birthday. I had always wanted to learn to play the guitar but I just never had the time or money to do it before so I had absolutely no experience when purchased. I was a total novice.

The initial investment was expensive (I purchased a very cheap electric guitar online along with the realtone cable and some picks, a strap, etc.)

When I first started the lessons I was having some trouble with the software not picking up the notes as I played them but this was fixed by turning the gain on the realtone cable up to around 5.5 db or so (2/3 of way up bar.) Once this was fixed I spent the next 3 weeks injuring my left wrist by playing as much as my body could stand.

I had to take a week off of playing. When I went back I quickly realized my fingers were too short and fat to effectively play a 6-string at the level required. I was muting way too many strings. My chords sounded awful and I couldn't get passed 60% mastery on any songs.

Before I totally accepted defeat I decided to bite the bullet and invest in a bass. Probably a better bass than I should have.

The first song the program suggested to me was Def Leopard "Pour some sugar on me." As I was playing it I noticed (with more than a little amusement) that the entire song only uses 2 strings. Since the program slowly shows you more and more notes as you play (you start off only playing certain notes in a bass line and the program will slowly fill in more notes as you properly hit the ones they are displaying [it is genius]) it took me around 5 tries hit 102% mastery on it. This truly boosted my confidence. While this song is easy to play I do love it and have since I was a teenager *cough*

As I tried more difficult songs and moved through the bass lessons and mini-games I realized that the extra space the neck of the bass provides between the strings allowed my fingers to move a bit more easily up and down the fretboard. The thicker strings also stood out more to my pudgy fingers.

I am sharing all of this with you, reader, essentially to say that now that it is 2 weeks before my 49th birthday I just tried to play "Everlong" by the Foo Fighters and nailed a 99% accuracy on my 2nd try.
I am bouncing up and down the fretboard like I have been playing the bass for a year. The more difficult songs still give me trouble. "Play that funky music" by Wild Cherry and "Satch Boogie" by the great Joe Satriani are examples of just hellish bass lines.

I have managed to impress all my friends and I play a version of "Hollow" by Alice in Chains that brings chills to them (they say.)

At this point I will only get better at the bass and I cannot believe how well this program has taught me (along with help from some youtube courses to nail techniques.)

If you are willing to put in the time, money, effort and maybe even some blood this program will teach you how to play a guitar or bass.

How well you do does depend a bit on talent of course.

I whole heartedly recommend this program. It has been worth every penny. But I usually wait for a good sale to get the expensive song packs.

So, short review. I like this guitar learning tool. It's easily the best way to learn guitar because it gives the player incentives and puts the notes right there, on the screen and you play that note like it's Guitar Hero, only real. This game has several different modes too, it has a session mode where you can jam with a virtual band equip with any musical style you wish to jam with as well as having several minigames that help you hone different techniques. There's a game where you have to bend the string at a precise point, there's a game where it's like Space Invaders and you hit the notes on your guitar to shoot at the aliens coming down. Rocksmith's main feature is the song list it has and by itself. this song list does appeal to everyone, even the old rock fans, like myself. I got to play Don't Look Back by Boston or My Generation by The Who. It's got other songs that tackle different genres but I haven't really paid any attention to those. The game will adjust to your skill level and you can, now, manually adjust to the skill level you think you're ready for and the game will work with it. I highly recommend this to beginners and advanced players alike because Rocksmith 2014 is just plain fun and you can even get the DLC from the previous game so it's a win win. Don't get the previous game but this one because it improves everything from the old one. The old one felt clunky and didn't let you play at a skill level at your choosing. This one does. You can also play Bass on here so if you're a bass player, they got you covered.

this game is realy realy good if you like good music (metal, rock, blues). that does not mean its ♥♥♥♥ if you dont. this game teaches you everything, there is even a few minigames you can play to inprove your playing. you learn it damn fast and its cheaper then any other prive lesson. so hell yea get this game. the only down side is what isnt realy a down side to me is: you need a realy guitar.

Rocksmith does work! I bought it on PS3 to see how it'd play, much like guitar hero with more than 5 buttons. I showed great improvement. And now I'm at the point where I can play on our stage in our house without the help of the game! Great song choices, if you're into heavier stuff, and you can definitely buy hundreds of songs, just don't go too crazy. Definitely reccomended!

Rocksmith 2014 is a great tool and a helpful game for beginners and advanced players as well. I makes you learn new things so you won't stuck in your comfort zone. If you are not super ambitious or perfectly dedicated to guitar playing or practising but you want to improve your skills in your pace then it is the perfect game for you.

I really like to play guitar, but i don't have much time to do it. Now I practice 2-3 times a week and it doesn't feel like practising more like enjoying the music.

Plus: I discovered many good music, and started listenening their albums.

So, yes I recommend this game
