2.0 out of 5 stars A real mixed bag, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rocksmith 2014 Edition - Includes Real Tone Cable (PS3) (Video Game)
Lets start by saying where I'm at as a guitar player. I'm roughly grade 3 have been playing for a few years have mastered most open chords - Major, Minor, Barre, 7th etc. Scales wise i practice daily and this for me was where Rocksmith came in, i can find my own way now with rhythm, but lead is a very different beast and it was with this aspect of giutaring that i wanted to focus on, maybe with some fun along the way with some new songs and i liked the sound of the AI band.

The first thing i noticed was the latency (the delay between playing the notes and hearing it through the system) the lead fixes the problem but it is completely unusable without.

So once i had the lead plugged in i headed for some lessons. I thought that it would get to know my ability so i headed straight for some basic chord lessons. Then for some shifting and some bends. Now i'm no Dave Gilmour but i can bend simple riffs without issue but it just refused to acknowledge the notes i was playing. So a very simple riff that i should have covered in a couple of minutes i found i was spending 20 minutes on at a much slower rate than needed - i just couldn't work out where i was going wrong. So anyway i moved onto a Queen song. Now i can play F as a barre without issue so i just didn't need it to scroll through the song adding a note of the F chord with each cycle - Why not just tell me to play F and save 10 minutes ?

So feeling somewhat disheartened i moved over to the AI band - It's OK i ran through a few improvised scales which it seemed to play along OK to - in some respects though i can get a different backing track of You Tube in no time at all.

So i decided to have a go at another song. It takes me to lessons on E minor - oh come on ! Then into the song and within 30 seconds Amin7/gb - really ?

That was the final straw - i spent a good 8 hours on it but even after that time it had no idea of my ability as a guitar player and couldn't adjust the lessons to fit my ability - and this is it's huge down fall.
