Anyone else tried this thing out? It seems to be a new way to learn guitar. Was using it yesterday and learned chords and scales i never knew.

I was interested in it when I first heard of it, but quickly forgot about it, unfortunately.
I did see it at GameStop, but I think they didn't have the cord, or something (game only).
So you think it would be good for a complete beginner? I haven't played in years and may as well start over... >>;

Got it for my dad for Christmas along with a guitar, it's pretty sweet; It goes over everything with you, from beginner to expert. I've seen some experts play with it and let me tell you, it actually does have you play the whole songs eventually and it's crazy.

I'd love to give it a shot. I don't think I can make the time commitment to justify buying it and a guitar though.

I got the first game thinking that it was a rhythm game that you played with a guitar. I was sort of right but it's more of a learning tool than a challenging rhythm game. I'm not saying I was disappointed though, I just think it's more aimed at people who want to learn how to play guitar and less at the rhythm game crowd.

My impression of it (having not actually played it) was that it was that thought everyone had of "man, what if you could play Guitar Hero with a real guitar and actually learn to play it for real" made a reality. Only that it turns out that it's not very game-like when you actually do that, and so they ran with it as a learning tool.

I bought my version of Rocksmith 2014 from STEAM and bought the cable from Amazon.
