Summary: While I've never taken a real lesson, I've been tooling around on a guitar for about 20 years or so. If Rocksmith existed when I first started playing, I probably would have accelerated my skill level much faster. I picked up Rocksmith to help my wife learn the Bass because I'm a terrible teacher and found myself dipping into the guitar lessons myself.
Summary: It's a cool concept but my son was mildly interested in it. He tried it a few times but hasn't touched it since. It shows you what strings to play at what times and could be very useful to teach maybe he was just too young, 12 years old.
Summary: I have played bass for 30 years and was looking for a fun game to help keep up my chops. Simply put this game is awesome'. I am learning songs that I have always wanted to learn and feel challenged by the games ability to sense my skill level and make things harder. All of the negative things that others have written are NOT TRUE or songs don't disappear after you perform well in them and the career mode is not frustrating..
Summary: Pro: it's for PS3. con: doesn't pick up on all the frets. no cable Other thoughts:while this is one of the best games for learning the guitar, it doesn't work quite right all the time. while playing the game you are supposed to hit the correct fret and strum the correct string. the game doesn't always see that you did that. I have the same game for the PC and it is the same way. I bought this version because I thought it was my Comp,, sadly it was not.
Summary: Good game, very under developed though. I'd recommend the sequel. the Port-over of songs from game to game is only $9.99, and you can download and play RS 2011 songs in the 2014 version. Also, if you use an HDMI, you should pick up an AV cable to plug into your T.V, lag will be noticeably reduced.
Summary: Rocksmith wow what can I say! if you want to learn how to play a guitars you can't go wrong with Rocksmith. it's like a game but your actually learning how to play a guitar. it's really cool. When I got my Rocksmith I played my guitar till my fingers got sore. I played for 4 hours. It's not easy but it's fun. and you will learn how to play your guitar. Thinking about getting Rocksmith ? do it...
