Granted, I'm more used to Rocksmith's note highway than I am BandFuse's left-to-right moving tab, but even if you sight read tab perfectly at speed, you have to READ the tab numbers to know whether you're going to be moving up or down the fretboard. You can't use your peripheral vision to see what's coming up and you don't get to see chords coming at you in boxes. I found BandFuse's moving tab more difficult to read and interpret. I'm sure I'll get better at it, but I can't imagine it'll ever get as easy to read as Rocksmith's note highway.
With Rocksmith you can peripherally see what is coming down the highway -- both string and fret location -- and prepare yourself for it because the notes are coming AT you, not going by left-to-right. (Watch some YouTube videos to see what I mean.)
I think both Rocksmith 2014 and BandFuse are great learning tools. If you can, get both. Each one is the price of a couple of lessons. If you're going to get just one, watch videos of both on YouTube and decide which display style -- Note Highway or Moving Tab -- you prefer.
Both Rocksmith 2014 and BandFuse have lessons and other cool features like Session Mode (Rocksmith) and Jams (BandFuse), but the display is the main thing. Figure out which one you prefer and rock on!
Edit (to help you interpret the BandFuse and Rocksmith videos):
BandFuse uses colors to indicate which finger it recommends you use: Green/index, Red/middle, Yellow/ring, Blue/pinky.
Rocksmith uses colors to indicate strings: Red/E, Yellow/A, Blue/D, Orange/G, Green/B, Purple/E.
The makers of BandFuse also seem to have been concerned with a number of Rocksmith "problems" that I wouldn't label as such. Songs use a 2D animated tab interface rather than Rocksmith's flashier 3D notes-flying-at-you ride, and show you which finger to put where. That does make things a little easier, but it feels less immersive, especially since BandFuse dedicates half the screen to the song's music video. BandFuse also offers indicators for whether you hit a note early or late, something Rocksmith lacks. But those indicators are tiny and impossible to look at while also determining which note to hit next. Besides, the accuracy with which any software can indicate guitar note timing is limited, particularly when you factor in video and audio delays. The one thing I'd call a solid improvement over RockSmith is the polyphonic tuner, which makes tuning very fast (though, annoyingly, you have to go through it before every song).
BandFuse also doubles down on the original Rocksmith's tour system, where you're given set lists to practice and play in order to earn points and unlock in-game prizes. BandFuse not only lets you win "fans," but also "cash" on your journey.Read more ›
the tour mode is a lot like the original RS; but you play the same songs in different sets so you actually learn the song better instead of just trying to get through it to get to the next level - the set list is decent and a good variety from classic rock to pretty new stuff.
it also has challenges to meet or beat a minimum score that take a little bit of work - make you play better.
The horizontal music flow is fairly easy once you figure it out - I think it does a better job of telling you what fingers to use - RS makes you figure it out on your own; but RS does a better job of showing you what is coming up - i.e. shifting your hands up the neck to play the solo or interludes.
to compare BandFuse & RS as somebody that really wants to learn guitar:
I think BF beats RS in the technical parts of learning the songs cause it tells you what fingers to use.
RS has the guitarcade which is a powerful learning tool; I thing the technique challenges in RS are great - f only they would let you keep track of your score as time goes on. The technique challenges in RS are put together really well - I think they are better than BF.
BF songs don't change in difficulty like they do in RS - you select your level of difficulty before you start the song. It would be great in the tour mode if the more times you played the song (through your various concerts - if they would throw more notes at you so you slowly learn to throw in the notes the lower lessons leave out.
BF has a lot of different scales and it shows you the notes - RS has the scale games...Read more ›

Bandfuse for XBOX is a great supplement to Rocksmith. The downfall is they were sued and shut down. The moving Tab is a alternate to the moving highway. Read morePublished 8 months ago by ALLEN F.
Was promising but was abandoned soon after release leaving it in need of bug fixes, with no support, and eventually without dlc. Shame really as it had some nice features. Read morePublished 9 months ago by John Newton
