Everyone is talking about Session Mode and I'm sure that will be a big selling point for people that already know how to play. For me, a beginning bassist, it's nice to have the band backing, but randomly hitting notes when you have no real idea of what you are doing is cool but I'm sure once I get the hang of playing, this part of the game will be much more enjoyable.
If you want to learn to play, get this. I am doing bass only but I am sure the guitar play works the same way. I am using the Lessons and here is how they are laid out:
You first choose your instrument and click Lessons if you are a noob like me. The first couple show you how to hold the instrument and things like that. Then you start getting videos of different techniques and each of those lessons comes with a practice track. Here is where Rocksmith shines! Using the Riff Repeater feature, you can adjust the difficulty level from 0-100 using a slider: the lower the difficulty, the fewer notes that will scroll on by. If you start at say, 30, you can play that difficulty until you nail all of the notes and then move up to 40 and so on until you reach 100 which is all of the notes.
But that is not all. In addition to choosing the difficulty level, you can also use a slider to increase/decrease the speed. So if you want all notes but really slow, you can have that.Read more ›
Rocksmith came with
- USB plug from guitar to my 360
- 6 ft HDMI cable
- An audio adapter for the 360
- An audio cable
Lucky for me my 360 is plugged into a receiver via HDMI so the only cable I needed to use was the USB plug from guitar to XBox.
First thing I had to do was tune my guitar. Rocksmith walked me through it and checked the tones for me (good thing for a tone deaf guy). The cool thing (for me at least) was that the software knew the problem before I did. If I hit the wrong string, it knew and told me to check which string I hit.
So I went through about 5 tutorials and tried to 100% them. The tutorials are excellent. It starts easy...if you can't get it, then it slows it down to get you used to moving across the frets and strings in time. For a noob like me, this was great. The game amazed me when it told me exactly what I was doing wrong in the tutorials (ie: wrong string, wrong fret...it knew). After you get through the first test, it does the same riff with more notes and complexities. It allowed me to practice and have a sense of success before it upped the level.
You can choose to play lead guitar, rhythm, or bass. You can use your electric guitar for bass, but I have not tried yet. I have only tried lead guitar so far but plan on trying the others.
There are 20 or so more lessons to do, but I was interested in trying a song (knowing I would fail).Read more ›
But first a tip: turn off voice commands (under options). For those people that are finding this game glitchy...me, too -- until I realized the game was picking up random sounds and interpreting them as commands and switching screens on me.
For the cost of a couple of guitar lessons you get a pretty cool game that resembles Guitar Hero. There's a boat load of songs and tons of instructional lessons on technique. For the price, that's worth it right there.
Starting out, it's really fun. The strings each have a different color and you can successfully play along and feel pretty good about learning and about your ability to be a potentially good guitar player.
The Riff Repeater is awesome. You can take a part of the song and adjust the speed and difficulty and it will loop over and over to help you really get good. Love this feature.
Progression - I would say that there are no songs on here that you can master as a beginner. I suppose that's OK but kinda discouraging. In the beginning, you start out having a song where you have to play a single string every ten seconds - which is a bit too easy for even the worst beginner. And then out of nowhere, a chord will appear. But that's usually OK - you can figure it out. But then, it goes from too easy to too hard in a heart beat.Read more ›
