Rated 4 out of 5 by joseph2121 Lots of fun
This game is a lot of fun. Your finger tips will be sore until you get use to playing. Worth buying if you want to learn how to play the guitar.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bmarie0105 This is a great game for guitar players of any skill level, holding a real guitar is so much different from playing games with a plastic guitar. If you are looking to learn how to play the guitar this is a great way to start.
Rated 4 out of 5 by awparker Interesting concept questionable follow through.
I have been playing guitar for about 50 years and thought I'd give this game a go. I have a grandson who started playing, but has been limited due to his involvement in sports and other activities, so lessons have been difficult to meet. I think this might be useful to him to learn some songs, but I did purchase it for my own use.
If you don't have a home theater system get one. To jump through hoops setting up your HDTV to use this game creates some other issues when you want to watch TV. The lag time without a home theater is a bit troublesome, although the game will record your string picking. The program picks up the slightest contact you make with other strings from the vibration of the strings adjacent to the one being played. You have to mute notes or they will ring until the next note is played.
If you play tab this game will fit the bill. If you don't know or grasp which finger should be holding down the various strings being played you will probably stumble through playing a song. It doesn't tell you which fingers you should use to hold down a string at a specific frets. Someone who doesn't understand fingering may become frustrated and learn improper technic.
I have Rock Band and it is definitely not the way to go in learning how to play guitar. When you know how to play trying to get used to playing keys/buttons takes some getting used to. Rocksmith at least gets you started in the right direction and makes sense.
Don't waste your money unless you have a home theater set up with HDMI capability. I'm looking at some sound bars since I don't have the time or energy to run cables under carpet or through walls and surround sound isn't important to me.
Rated 4 out of 5 by ezery Great for people without talent
this product is a great tool for beginners. The only thing I don't like is its lack of use for multiple users, it progresses for everybody and some want to start at the beginning.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JanglesNC Fun way to learn guitar!
I have really enjoyed Rocksmith so far. I have always wanted to learn, but haven't gotten very far with the books/dvds. This game progresses in difficulty as you progress in skill. I haven't made it too far into the game, but I am seeing my accuracy improve consistently (even if slowly). I am really enjoying this "game" and recommend it to anyone curious about learning to play guitar.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elijahsmom1 Great learning tool.
Bought this for our 15 yr old son along with an electric/accoustic guitar for Christmas and it is awesome. It really does help them to learn to play. Takes the place of needing an amp for now.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BellaZ We bought this for our 15-year-old grandson for Christmas. He loves it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by DNHawk Excellent Guitar Ed Tool
Purchased this for our twelve year old who was struggling finding his groove with guitar lessons. We use this game to make his practices more interesting--he is no longer complaining about "having to practice". He loves this game and it has been an excellent track-your-progress learning tool for him. So worth the money!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chymoons Challenging game
I have played Guitar Hero since it first came out for Xbox and it became less challenging all the time. With this game the diffulculty actually increases as you play. So the better that you are the harder it is.
