Ive completed this game and having played guitar for a few years now i found it basic to begin with then it just gets better and better. Ideal for beginners and right through to the experienced guitarists/bassist. No fake plastic stuff here! Just fun playing your real guitar linked to your PS3. Play along with loads of great tunes and improve your skills along the way!

Hi guys. first off this game could be amazing, you use your own real guitar and the sound is great. The problems come with the audio setup. You are not meant to use hdmi with this game thats the first thing you will read once you've opened the box. If your whole system with ps3 and tv and everthing else is setup for hdmi then its a major pain to go switching around everything. I tried it with hdmi just to see why it's not recommended and there is a major lag between hitting the strings and sound from speaker so hdmi is out of the question. I tried it with component which made a slight improvement but not much and then composite which is the same all in all to cut a long story short the game just is not worth the hassle. I could not recommend this game to anyone.

Great product especially for those just learning to play. Hours spent over Christmas on Rocksmith. Daughter loves it - a real hit.

In my opinion this will teach anyone the necessary skills to be able to play the guitar, it starts off slowly and teaches you a few notes and gives you a chance to get a feel for the rhythm and tune. Once you pick it up it makes it a little harder by adding some more notes until eventually you are playing the entire song. This could take minutes, hours or days but given the time and practice you will do it.

Most of the featured tracks are fairly easy going, there's no Dragonforce, Slayer or Metallica. A shame maybe but I'm sure the majority of players won't be looking to become a shredder, but don't worry I'm sure they'd add these into the DLC if there's a market.

I've played guitar for 16 years and if I'm honest I struggled initially, it's a bit strange at first because it's a different way of learning to how I am used to but once you get into the mindset it becomes incredibly simple.

Pro guitarists are endorsing this and I really hope it takes off, it's not your standard rhythm game and it doesn't give you the party atmosphere but it will teach you the fundamentals of playing a real musical instrument. This is serious entertainment and not just your pick up and play plastic kids toy guitars.
