    Great option to learn to play REAL guitar. You should be able to find something for you in huge number of extra songs (DLC)

  3. Best way to learn guitar!
    by dvandersluis, Canada - Jun 1st 2017

    I never played guitar before this game, and while I'm not great now, it's allowed me to take the next step from arcade games like guitar hero.

  5. Rocksmith 2014
    by TheLastFew, Canada - Aug 7th 2016

    The game is advertised to guitar players of all skill levels. However, most of the non-DLC songs in the game are on the easier side. Moreover, the game will not show all the notes that need to be played on any given song until you "prove" your level - even if you initially manually selected the highest skill level. It is only possible to display all the notes in Riff Repeater if you manually change the difficulty to 100.
    Furthermore, even though my PC comfortably exceeds the minimum requirements, the latency in my guitar was audible enough to be borderline unplayable.
    Finally, the game completely disregards the guitar tablature that has been standard in print and online for decades. Instead, it uses a confusing color-coded system and markers reminiscent of the Guitar Hero and Rock Band games. While visually impressive, it is completely unnecessary and off-putting for more advanced guitar players.
    I wanted to give the game a try because the premise is very interesting but I think I will stick to Guitar Pro from now on.

  6. Amazing learning game!
    by dolci, Russian Federation - Nov 29th 2015

    Nice game, you'll go from strumming to chords to songs. The step up is a little high, nice game none the less. 8/10

    PS Also the California classic electric guitar is around 90 bucks on Monoprice, if you are looking to buy a cheap solid made guitar for the game.

  8. 150+ hours played
    by apaatsio, Finland - Aug 15th 2015

    I have played over 150 hours and it has been the best time of my life. The difficulty starts really easy and progresses quite optimally. Very engaging and fulfilling.

    It doesn't teach you music theory. So if you want that you need to look for other sources. Rocksmith only teaches you to play the guitar :)

  12. Must Have
    by Ervin23, USA - Feb 15th 2015

    For anyone who has tried to learn guitar before and not quite picked it up, this is your calling. There is nothing more important then to practice practice practice when you first start out. And as those of us who picked up a guitar before Rocksmith will tell you, it's tedious, uninteresting, and unsatisfying at best. This game actually makes it fun to put in the time and effort. Your fingers aren't used to moving around the fretboard. Your brain isn't used to seeing (or thinking) of notes to play and then actually doing it on time and on rhythm.

    Keep putting in around an hour a day in this game and you will start to see the difference in no time. I recommend you get the RS1 Import through Steam and the PC/Mac version also has loads of customs. Give this game a shot if you haven't already.
