Question about rocksmith

#1itachi00Posted 7/18/2014 9:00:47 PM
which ver should I get? can the software alone teach me or do I need the equipment that goes with the physical version of the game? Also if I need a guitar which guitar do you guys recommend I buy?

You basically need the 'realtone' cable. You can buy just the software and the cable seperately but it's probably just easier to get a bundle. Also just get rocksmith 2014 for now. Get any guitar you'd like. Keep in mind that sub 200 dollars for an electric guitar will likely result in a more frustrating experience but there are exceptions. Brands that offer pretty nice starter guitars also happen to be some of the biggest in the business. Fender, Ibanez, Gibson... all great guitars for the most part.

If you do get started, just know that its a slow burner. It actually physically hurts at first and some of the finger stretches needed along with the chord muscle memory can take a long time to develop. I recommend thinner strings at first (8-46 or something similar). Also don't worry if some of this stuff is foreign to you right now. If you get rockmith and supplement it with other avenues for learning, you'll be playing your favorite tunes in no time.

If you're just starting out you could probably get a guitar out of a box at Hastings or Walmart or something, a box guitar was my first electric and I imagine it'd work fine enough for Rocksmith.

I wouldn't spend a fortune on a guitar (unless you've just got money to burn).

That's the guitar I have... well, one of them (I wound up buying a couple of cheap-o guitars first). It's still a low budget guitar but it feels a lot better than the $99 chinese knockoff guitars.

Any guitar will do alright, for now. At least until you decide you want to get serious about guitar. Then it's time to upgrade and maybe then you'll know a little more about what you want out of a guitar.

Rocksmith is more of a game and not a substitute for a teacher or proper practicing. You may be discouraged when you put down Rocksmith and attempt to take the instrument a little more seriously. Try not to let that happen. Power through it. :)
