  • That Rock band game that never was should be picked up as a Rocksmith expansion.

    Sorta off-topic... How do you like Rocksmith? I have Rock band Pro and I found I hit a wall in terms of improving. That might be related to me not practicing and having two left feet for hands, buuuut...

    It's fahkin awesome I've never heard of rock band pro but rocksmith has a lot of lessons on different styles of playing that have really improved my playing, I've been playing it pretty much since I got it & I got 2 weeks off from work so ill pretty much be like Eddie van halen when I go back to work haha, I will say that it's pricey tho, the game is $80 and I've already spent $50 on downloadable content (extra songs) I got the pearl jam, who, black keys, smashing pumpkins, & radiohead song packs, plus songs by Gary Clark jr them crooked vultures, qotsa & ram jam

    The game is certainly good. Band fuse is OK too. If you're gonna try to learn on it, use other sources as well. Learning solely on rocksmith just begs for bad habits to solidify
  • Anyone try Bandfuse? I like tabs more than the confusing 3Dish design of Rocksmith.

    RockBand 3 Pro.. vertical scrolling tabs doesn't translate well to actually memorizing the song.

    Agreed they need a lot more PJ songs. As a newbie guitar player, I enjoy Rocksmith immensely. It has greatly helped me so far. The 2014 version has a much better interface than the original, unfortunately you have to pay $10 to have all your songs from the first version switched over. The ones that came with the original and the ones you have already downloaded.

    Anyway, yes more PJ would be nice.

    I bought a guitar for the first time about 8 months ago. I tried/started learning some chords and "practicing" for months on end with some help from youtube videos. I did get better but never really learned how to play a whole song aside from rocking in the free world, simple man, and jingle bells. I learned some riffs but never really got the sound I needed for the songs. I saw rocksmith, read reviews, searched it online and decided, alongside purchasing two additional 3/4 guitars for my oldest boys, and purchased it for, errr, THEM for Christmas. I sold it to the wife as "Well the cost of the game is like two music lessons for one child, err ya" Anyways I have played for a few hours sporadically throughout each day since the boys opened, cough, their present and wow. I have been waiting for a way to learn songs so I can actually play.
    For those who wonder if its worth the cost, it is. You can attempt a song which will adjust difficulty within the current song, then it will give feedback on your performance. Then it will give suggestions to "lessons" which are tutorials with a play and repeat after. There are also old school Atari/arcade games that are centered around guitar lessons. It is tiring but fun. I have learned a lot in 6 days. If I complete this whole game I should be able to do what I always wanted with guitar, play and jam. It won't make me an accomplished musician but I will know the guitar and how to play. Greatest $50 I spent, ever (got it on sale)
    I too bought the PJ songpack and was disappointed that they only had Alive, Jeremy, Black. I never thought Black was a difficult song but it is a fugging finger breaker, which only confirms that Stone Gossard is the fugging MAN.

    So yes Rocksmith great, but the ability to tap deeper into artists catalogue instead of just radio hits would be awesome. Who doesn't want to learn Nothing as it Seems, or Satans Bed?

    And my oldest has played it twice :lol:

    Wind this thing up.

    try the Rhythm version of Black. It is probably the easiest arrangement in the game.

    Thanks for that!

    Edit: I just tried it and by far probably one of the easiest songs.

    My wife surprised the hell out of me this Christmas with a new guitar and Rocksmith. I havn't played since I was younger and didnt learn shit then because my teacher sucked. I have learned a lot in 6 days and am already decent at a couple songs. I was going to check out the PJ song pack this weekend. Dissapointed to hear what songs are included.

    RockBand 3 Pro.. vertical scrolling tabs doesn't translate well to actually memorizing the song.

    I just picked up Band Fuse, but haven't been able to spend a lot of time with it yet. I thought I already knew how to play Alive on guitar but the first time through it on the game I felt like I knew nothing. Part of it was cause I was trying on a lower difficulty so it only has you playing about half of the notes. It has a learning section where it breaks the song into smaller parts and lets you loop through at lower speeds until you get it. Overall I like the interface more than Rocksmith as it is more of a tablature style than the odd 3d vertical scrolling notes. Each song will still take time though cause it's not like you can just jump in and read the scrolling notes as fast as they come.

    Buy the songs or just learn to play it yourself.

    Thank you for taking the time to respond. At $59.99 Bandfuse is a bit pricey but I may have to go for it. I just can't get used to the Rocksmith 3D vertical interface it's weird. I like left to right tabs, which I have read for years.
