Rocksmith 2014 – My 60 Day Challenge

As I mentioned in my last post, one of my favorite gifts I received this year was a copy of Rocksmith 2014 for my PS3. With a new year dawning just a few days ago, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to pick an awesome New Year’s resolution… learn to play the guitar. So I opted to participate in Rocksmith’s 60 Day Challenge. What is Rocksmith?

From the Rocksmith website:

Rocksmith teaches you how to play fast and effectively by letting you plug any real guitar or bass* directly into your Xbox 360® games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Windows® PC or Mac.

Rocksmith becomes your personal guitar teacher as it monitors how you play, dynamically adjusts the difficulty to your skill level, then slowly introduces more notes and phrases until you’re playing your favorite songs note-for-note.

Rocksmith makes guitar and bass practice fun because it’s built by Ubisoft – one of the world’s largest video game developers. Built-in scoring, goals, and mini-games take away the pain of drills and repetition. Rocksmith teaches you to play so fast because it makes learning guitar both fun and interactive.
