Summary: I bought this to help learn to play the guitar. it may help somewhat, but for the most part it is just a game that uses a real guitar. Pro: it uses a real guitar and will help when trying to learn where the strings and frets are. any practice is better than no practice. Con: the song list is terrible. not all songs have single note option. No free play. a lot of the time the game won't recognize the correct fret when you play.
Summary: I LOVE playing Rocksmith. I believe it's a great game for guitarists. I love how easily you can learn songs, with time put into it, but there's one thing I HATE about it. This cable is terrible. I've heard of many people having defective ones, and mine has just randomly stopped working. To pay $30 for a cable that probably costs $7 to make is ridiculous. I'll be buying a new cable soon, and swapping out my defective cable with the new one's warranty.
