Rocksmith 2014 is a great game and a fun way to learn to play the guitar. I have always been a rhythm player in the past and I'm using Rocksmith to learn more about lead. I've been having a great time with the game and intend to take proper lessons and some point because of my experience with Rocksmith. I hope they keep improving and putting out new tunes as well as make a new version in the future. Strongly recommended!

Have also played the first Rocksmith I see there are a lot of improvements. I still think this is one of the most fun way to pick up guitar playing at any given time.

ok im pretty sure that i got enought time in this "game" to get a well based review,so lets start with the pros
first to note it's NOT a replacement for a real in person leasson, although it really is a great way to start and feel like a great guitarrist.
second to note is if you never played before rocksmith will give you a nice way to learn or just to train the techniques with the sometimes overlooked guitarcade
thrid is that the game wont push you beyond your level and if it's too hard the game will ajust the song level for you and the same if it's too easy
fourth thing is that the songs avaliable are all great for leaning some techniques and have a good time
now lets start whit the cons
fifth, the amount of song packs are way above the average to dont find something that you like you probably dont like music in general (what you doing here?)
first the cable is not perfect soo some times you may feel like some techniques are not really recgnized
second is that sometimes the leasson seems weak and lacking a better explanation so you will need figure out by yourself or with real lesson elsewere
third to note is that the session mode its way bellow the rest of the rocksmith it lacks a better band creation and a record mode
fourth is that a lot of good bands are overlooked while some other got multiple song packs (may be because of the legal mumbo-jambo)
and for the last you will need to always have spare strings and picks\
overhall its a great way to get started or just to learn new songs, but with some flaws that dont affects the experience,
and just in case you are looking for some cool songs check the custom forge if you dont find the song you are looking for in the official packs
sorry for the bad english and hope you read it all and decided to give a chance to the best ubisoft "game" ever

Rocksmith 2014 is essentially an improved version of the earlier installment in the series, and I have to say that Ubisoft really nailed it with this one.
The game provides a simple, good-looking and smooth experience for people to learn and play the guitar, regardless of skill level.
With this game you can learn to play along to your favourite songs, practice your slides, harmonics, chords, play minigames in the Guitarcade, test yourself to reach higher and higher scores in the Score Attack mode and much much more.

Being an intermediate guitar player that just picked up the electric, I have to admit that playing this game has been a blessing. Within the first five hours of playing I had already learnt more than I had after 3 years of lessons. The game is easy to use and gives you plenty of time learn the songs you love, allowing you to increase and decrease the difficulty and speed of specific segments with the Riff Repeater.

The game starts off with a generous amount of songs for you to play, and allows you to purchase hundreds of other songs for a relatively cheap price with new DLC being brought out weekly. If there's a song that you want to play that isn't in the main game or any of the DLC, there's also a great chance that you can find and download a Custom DLC from any of the many community websites.

The only bad things I can say is that the game might not recognize you playing some power chords if there's a lot of distortion going on, and that you have to go to a store and buy a Real Tone Cable before you can play.

Buying this game is probably one of the best decisions I've made recently, and if you are a beginner and want to improve your guitar playing skills, or if you're a master and just want to have som fun challenging yourself to clear Fury of the Storm with 100% accuracy. I suggest that you spend the around 50€ for the game and the cable, and go have some fun! ;)

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.

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!
