When it was issued Rocksmith was the only game I played for months. In fact I suppose it engaged many guitar players amateurs and professionals alike. Rocksmith is a special game for guitarists. You do not need mouse or keyboard or any other controller to play the game, all you need is your guitar so that you plug it in into your PC and you are ready to go. Innovative game design makes playing guitar visually intuitive.
The game includes more than 50 musicians/bands. The catalog of songs is large and diverse enough to suit musical taste of any guitarist. Among the musicians/bands are: David Bowie, Eric Clapton, Franz Ferdinand, Incubus, Kings of Leon, Lenny Kravitz, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Muse, Nirvana, Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead, Sigur Ros, The Animals, The Cure, The Dead Weather, The Rolling Stones, The White Stripes and many more.
Rocksmith helps you to develop. The game adapts to suit your present level of guitar playing and makes relevant suggestions based on your particular skill-set. Within the game you can purchase your progress line and reach the level when you are ready for stage.
You may start with playing simply several notes or playing whole tracks yourself. Rocksmith gives you challenges of playing the real lead guitar parts of the legendary tracks on a real guitar.
If you prefer rhythm guitar, Rocksmith has plenty of tracks that range from simple to complex chord structures. So that you can progress and develop your skills.
Each and every copy of Rocksmith comes with ¼ inch to USB cable that is designed to turn guitar’s analog signal into digital so that you PC gets what you pay. So when you receive your Rocksmith package all that remains is take your guitar and get started. You will not need anything else to get started.
I would not call Rocksmith just a game, rather it is a complex, unique and innovative learning suite. With Rocksmith learning how to play guitar becomes more amusing.
