This and the first game taught me how to play guitar, and made me the musician I am today. I am eternally grateful for this game.

Title
Buy this, Cherub Rock DLC, make an account on customs forge, and you're set forever
I've sunken 800+ hours into this game so far. This is the best software you can use to learn guitar, easily. Plus if you buy the cherub rock DLC, it allows you to install almost any song that you want to play from Customs Forge.

Title
I'll admit, your enjoyment of this really comes from if you are serious about learning guitar and if you have the patience to go through tons of failing, sounding like complete shit, and putting up with sore fingers. Rocksmith is essentially the musicians version of Rock Band, although instead of having fun multiplayer modes with friends, you are essentially given tabs that you play along the guitar parts to different songs. The game has a solid variety of songs and tons of DLC that has a variety of genres from the 50s to present day, although the game won't have everything. The game doesn't let you fail, so if you suck at a song you just get a bad score, and at the end of a song you are given a percent which means the percent of notes you hit in the song. You can change difficulty and the easier difficulties will simplify chords and have you play less notes.

The thing about Rocksmith is that you can go into practice mode and slow a song down. You can play the song over and over again as slow as you want and choose what sections you want to practice. This is incredibly useful and definitely a huge improvement over many other guitar learning tools. The game has other modes too, there are arcade games you can play to practice different skills like power chords or slides/bends, but most of these arcade games end up being a bit distracting and get a bit boring and tedious. There are also basic lessons you can go through that are essentially just play along tutorials and videos, but again, playing through the actual songs I found to be more useful than most of these tutorials. On top of this you can also play through the songs in arcade mode and even get an option to play the songs with hidden notes.

Now there are some complaints, while Rocksmith 2014 makes huge improvements over the previous version this is far from perfect. The game is good for learning and has pretty accurate tabs of the songs, and even a good variety of songs, but it is a bit tedious having to increase the difficulty in every song if you want to make it harder instead of getting the option from the start of selecting the song. Also, the games note detection can be odd, sometimes I'd completely miss a not or just randomly strum during a difficult solo and it'd give me, others would say I missed when I clearly hit the note, granted I know there are other factors like guitar tuning but I found this problem to be present sometimes. The other is selecting different tones for your guitar, you are able to create different sounds through virtual amps and effects but its a bit tedious doing. Also jam mode is fun to just play along to different modes and beats, but I do wish there was more variety. The guitar amps in this also could have done better, some do sound a bit cheap, I know these are virtual amps and you are playing them through your TVs speakers, but still. Overall, Rocksmith 2014 is a great learning tool and more fun than just using tabs or basic videos online, but at the same time, if you want to get good you need to really put in a lot of effort and slow songs down, play them on easier difficulties. And it doesn't come easy, like any talent, you need to be motivated to put in effort and repeat the same thing over and over until you perfect it, and that's really where your enjoyment of Rocksmith will come, if you enjoy learning guitar or not. Yeah I don't think this should be the only learning tool, I think using actual tab books and online tutorials and instruction are just as useful, not to mention this game can get costly if you buy all the songs you want, this game has 1000s of DLC songs and at $3 a song, its not cheap and can easily cost you $100 or even $1000 of dollars to by all the songs you want to learn, but again, if you have a guitar and are interested in learning or getting better and have extra money to burn, this is one of the better tools and its fun to play along to some of my favorite songs and know I'm not a complete failure at guitar.

Title
A systematic sequel, but that's okay because the engine and notation are vastly improved, and all old DLC works on the same accounts (though this is not without its snags). The engine comes at two costs: proper calibration without auxiliary audio is far harder as a result of the tighter timing, and the software is liable to bring the 360 to its knees, with frequent freezing. Get the right version and you have a legitimately great tool for learning the six string.

    I bought this in 2015 thinking guitar would be something fun to try and learn. And.... yeah. I’ve been playing guitar for 6 years now and I consider it my biggest passion. Nothing comes close. I started making my own music, I made new friends along the way, and it quite literally changed my life’s direction. I know I seem pretty dramatic rn but holy fuck the impact of this game on me is IMMENSE.

    Don’t depend on it though, it only gets you so far in terms of how to play so I recommend branching out and learning from other sources. But this is a great first step I’d recommend to any aspiring guitarist.

    I don't think this game is ever enough to learn the instrument, even though I didn't learn myself with Rocksmith to me it seems very much like using DuoLingo to learn a language, it should only really be an extra to other ways of learning, not mandate the entire learning process. Maybe not the best example as DuoLingo just kinda sucks all around, but you get what I mean.
    Where this game really shines though is motivating one to play more and that alone is worth quite a lot.
