Well I've played over 300 hours on this, so I guess I like it.

Compared the first Rocksmith it's streets ahead, it's almost like a totally different game, the latency is better the modes are better, the guitarcade is awesome and Session mode makes me lose huge chunks out of my day.

Is it perfect, no but it's pretty good. I miss the tour mode from the first game, I liked that idea but with the amount of DLC and songs available for RS2014 I don't think I can complain about the small things.

Great for learning to play the guitar. I have tried to learn by attempting the books but this program makes things so much easier and clearer to begin playing.

While not a substitute for a *good* teacher, it is a much better option than many crappy teachers, and most guitar teachers are pretty crappy. While I haven't gotten to "hero" yet, I've gone from Zero, to well, having callouses and being able to improvise over scales in a mere 30-something hours of practice with the app.

The way I've been explaining this game to my friends is, think Guitar Hero but make it an educational game with a real guitar. Individual phrases are simplified and you level them up individually from each other, and instead of "failing" you if you miss too many notes the game tries to keep you at a level to where you're on your toes.

One thing I really appreciate about this game is that it's teaching me actual songs I can relate to. I sat down the other day to practice a prhase from one of the Radiohead songs, realized it's in the same key as the primary Salsa riff, the Game of Thrones theme, the Legend of Zelda theme and the Super Mario Castle music, and had a lot of fun going between them all. I'm not just learning more about the guitar, I'm learning more about music.

One thing I find really frustrating with this game is that it has a hard time recognizing my playing of some techniques. It doesn't recognize a vast majority of my pitch bends, for example, though an accomplished guitarist friend of mine says they're fine. The game doesn't offer any feedback on how I might improve them, other than to watch the tutorial video again.

Overall, if you want to learn guitar, it's hard to go wrong with this game as part of a larger practice. Props to Ubisoft for creating something that's more about learning and less about ego.

Brilliant way to learn guitar. Very engaging.
Fun mini-games will keep you playing til your fingers bleed.
Game crashes every time you play. Every time. Eventually.
Annoying DLC presence.

A great game/teaching software.

While the lessons are somewhat of a mixed bag (you quickly stumble upon a problem of unforgiving difficulty), learning songs works perfectly and is very motivating. The idea of progressive difficulty based on player ability to play is implemented flawlessly.
The selection of default songs was disappointing in the beggining. However after learning basic of playing guitar, I started to enjoy many songs, which I found mediocre at first. If standard set of songs is not enough, there's always DLC, where most players should find something interesting.

Great game for learning how to play the guitar.
It even works with a semi-acoustic guitar.

Before I didn't play my guitar, but now I frequently want to play it.

I quit playing quitar in 2006 and picked up bass because my friends didn't have a bassist in their group and my guitar sucked really hard. After that I always wanted to pick up a new guitar and restart guitar but didn't have time although last year I bought a fine guitar.

This fine piece of educational game really helps you get it up from where you left off. I don't know if it would let you learn from zero but if you learned at one point and want to continue but don't have the courage, this game might be the thing that you need.

Also session mode is awesome if you don't have a band to train with. Only downside is you can't plau a smooth solo under a fast rhythm because they immediately follow you and slow down. Other than that it's amazing.

10/10 highly recommended.

First off, I'd just like to say the big annoyance of this game. It is that every guitar and bass I own apparently has a really low volume. Every time the tuning screen comes up it says it. These are not low quality instruments. Apparently my massively loud Rickenbacker 4003 is too quiet! I don't not what guitars and basses they were testing with but seriously? So with that out the way I think I can talk about the rest of the game.

It's fun! Though I'd question it's worth as a teaching tool. I picked this game up with 7 years bass experience, so I haven't really used it as a teaching tool. I got it because I'm a big fan of guitar hero and thought it'd be cool if I could learn some songs on the way. Unfortunatly, many years of playing Guitar Hero have made me quite good a sight reading this game. Every time I learn a song in the game to 100% or near mastery, I can't remember a single note when I come away. This isn't so much of a problem with the game as a problem if you've played a lot of Guitar Hero that I thought you might want to be aware of.

This game has made me less prone to looking at the neck of my bass though. I didn't actually realise how much I did it until I started playing Rocksmith. It has taught me to only look down for the big jumps, which is cool. So it's not without it's uses if you're experienced.

The big thing I wanted to get out of this game apart from another cool rhythm game, is a few new songs to learn that I otherwise may not have thought to. It has done a great job of that. I've learned Radiohead, Stone Temple Pilots, Dead Weather. It's all good stuff. Plus there are an enormous amount of custom songs available for download. They're easy to install and they're all actually of pretty good quality that I've tried. Not like they were in Guitar Hero 3. So check this out if you want to learn some songs. Though I haven't seen anything that explains any music theory to you, which you really need if you're starting out. So maybe only get it if you already have a pretty good idea what you're doing.

Lessons are pretty useless. Can only set speed on practice track not on excercises. I was tought that "speed is byproduct of accuracy". What this app is doing is teaching you to play lousy as it's starts at top speed and doesn't give you a chance to practice at low speed.
