Rocksmith is going to change the way we think about music games
I wish they would have created this game to start with.
Another game I'll need to pick up. I need something like this to keep me from getting bored while practicing on my own.
REAPER + NI Guitar Rig, best game evah ; P
This could be the one that everyone has been hoping for. Looking forward to it.
I have been playing since I was 10, I'm 31 now. (sucks) But this I would try out. I couldn't stand the fact that so many people were basically learning how to play Guitar Hero and practicing as much to be good at it, as it would be to play a real guitar. It seemed like such a waste. But this seems pretty cool. I would have loved to have this when I was 11 or 12. Its something I'd want to get my 11 year old nephew that I'm teaching guitar and bass to now. Especially with the new guitars out that have light up fret boards to teach people to play. This could be just the thing to create the next Hendrix or Satriani. Pretty cool in idea, I hope the execution is there.
From what I have seen of this game in person, it is well executed.
I just hope they get a good track listing. I like allot of metal and metalcore. As well as hard rock and such, which needless to say allot of games don't have much of those categories.
i really like this idea but for the people who really want to learn guitar for real. please do not rely on this. its much better to learn by yourself imo its hard to explain but if you learn by yourself (like figuring it out what are the right notes to play the song u want without the help of tablature or this game) in that case it will help u to be creative of creating a song, yes an original song composed by you. This game is really a great idea for the people who dont know anything about guitar. this will help them to get interested with guitar and/or music.
You gotta learn basic cords somehow. I had about 3 lessons when I was a kid. Just enough to get me playing a song. I'm a lucky person who can play by ear. That's not something everyone who plays can do. If they could there would be no need for sheet music, Tabs, music teachers, anything. Most people aren't going to stick to trying to play an instrument the way you say to try and do it. They would just get frustrated and go right back to guitar hero. Or worse yet never pick up an instrument again. People need a guiding hand when they start. My little nephew has the gift, he can hear whats right and tries to make his own 4 cord change songs to show me latter. Its pretty cool. But If I wasn't there to guide him and teach him the basics, I can promise he would have given up already. If you were able to pick up the guitar and have absolutely no outside influence, never looked at a tab, video, or something, Plus figured out the standard tuning of a guitar all on your own, well then your a better man than me. But that's not going to work for the other 99.99% trying to first start. That's why this game is a great thing, and you should be a supporter of it if you indeed play as well. Its a hell of a lot better than kids practicing for hours to play guitar hero instead. The thing your talking about is playing by ear, and you should thank who ever you believe in for that gift. There are not that many people that can play that way. I was very luck to have a God given gift to play by ear. But the fact is most people who play an instrument can't just listen to a song to learn it. That's what gives some of us an edge on others.
you kind of misunderstood me (not your fault i suck at explaining things). anyway, I am just saying that if you want to create a song (yknow creating some really cool riffs) it will be better to try figure it out how to play some of the songs you like cuz in that way there is a chance that you can be creative at making cool riffs. LOOKING AT CHORD CHARTS is okay (thats what i did first anyway). BUT LOOKING FOR TABS like Ultimate-guitar.com, guitar pro are cheats i hope that helps u understand what i am trying to say.
