Rocksmith – Learn Real Guitar Gaming on Your Console

If you’re actually a guitarist or at least know your way around one then those plastic axes with buttons, not strings, may have confused you a little.

Now that Guitar Hero was found dead in a motel room it’s time for something new to stride up to Rock Band and put its foot though RB’s speaker.

Here is Rocksmith from Ubisoft. It’s half game, half guitar lesson and 100% fun!

Rocksmith uses real instruments and will actually teach you how to play a “real” guitar.

Just plug your guitar into an Xbox 360 or PS3 using the standard ¼ inch jack and rock out.

Rocksmith is the “first and only game where you can plug into any real guitar”.

If you’re looking to step up from the button-loaded mini guitars and are a bit concerned that your virtual axe skills wont cut it – Don’t you fret about that (see what I did there?).

The gameplay is adapted to your personal skill level which will see you go from bashing out single notes to rocking complex chords. There’s four difficulty modes to choose from and you can opt to play rhythm or lead before you hit the stage – there’s also a multiplayer mode 🙂

There’s no official play list at this point but Ubisoft promises that the game will “capture a wide range of music”.

Anything that will get people playing real instruments again has to be good! Only thing is that when the bass version arrives I’ll have no real excuses why I suck 🙁
