Rocksmith – So you wanna be a rock superstar? (Lazygamer.net)

Learning to play any instrument though is hard work - and Rocksmith hardly makes it any easier.

But can Rocksmith - due in Europe this October - really teach you how to play? (PS3, Rocksmith, Ubisoft, Xbox 360)

I have it, and I can play the whole song without it now,and I've never touched a guitar ever. And the way it teaches u how to play I can tune it by sound, and play another song by hitting single notes/ listening.

I can also vouch for this "Game". Obviously it won't/can't teach you theory like real lessons or classes can but having never strummed the strings on a guitar before in my life, I also can now play upwards to 10 songs now without the game. I have a much better feel for the guitar and it crosses barriers that are a thousand times more difficult to without Rocksmith. I really recommend this game to ANYONE who has ever thought about playing guitar.. And it's a fun game!

Just have to make sure you buy an optical cable and send the audio signal separately to avoid audio lag. Then it's perfect

I imported from Amazon for £50, its really good. I have been messing around with a guitar i got cheap off a mate for a few months now (looking at tabs and that Marty Shwartz dude on youtube), but Rocksmith is helping me actually become a solid guitarist. I found the most difficult part to be having to look at the screen, reading the tab thing and then playing it on the fretboard without looking at it, i often (and still do) find myslef hitting, say, the 8th fret instead of the 7th, which does cause annoyance. But i only got it a few days ago. Anyway, if you have some knowledge of guitar, like how to hold pick, strumming etc., this game is ideal. Especially if you can't afford those pricey lessons!

already can play guitar , but this seems like a fun way to practice in my own time when away from the band . when does this release in europe for ps3?

As a guitar player, I found this game to be extremely accurate....the only potential case for lag is if you have the audio source set to be the same as video...in other words, make sure you are using a receiver for your audio and NOT your TV.

If you already know how to play guitar, you may not like the missing difficulty control. Every song starts out VERY EASY when you first play it...you have to play each song a couple of times (at least) to get the full notes. Sometimes the game will even show a different (easier) tab scheme until you have proven your worth.

All in all, this game is nothing like Rockband....this is more of a tutorial than it is just a 'pick up and party' type game.

thanx for the insight there mr bun , this seems like a fun way to play instead of going over the same usual routine.

It's definitely fun. The only real downside I can see for this game is the price if you don't already own an electric guitar....but if you do have one, it's an excellent way to learn how to play.

Unlike in Rockband, when you have learned how to play a song in Rocksmith, you can actually play the song (or at least a very close variation of it, in some instances).

Bottom line is that it is a fun way to learn how to play, but you still need to put the time and effort into it if you want to truly learn!
