Have any of you (adults) used this as a learning tool? I played a little in high school, but you can pretty much label me a beginner since I've forgotten just about all of it. I've thought about taking lessons, but since the drive would be 30+ minutes on a good day, I know I wouldn't last long. It'd be nice to go at my own pace. I don't expect it to make me an expert, just wondering if it's a nice pick up and play tool.
I've been debating whether to get this or try some of the learning tools built in to Apple's Garage Band app for Mac. Insight from someone experienced would be great. I've tried DVDs in the past as well, but I just find myself getting annoyed at Joe Blow.
Also, are there fixes out there for the audio delay? I'll be playing on the Xbox and I've noticed that even the good reviews on Amazon[amazon.com] mention this. I'll be getting a surround sound soon, but I'd rather not have to switch between my HDMI & Component outputs all the time.
I was in the same boat as you last year, I had played in high school then quit for ~7 years. When RB3 came out with the pro guitar, I considered picking it up because I wanted to get back into guitar but didn't want to spend that much. Then I watched some Rocksmith gameplay and thought it looked interesting so I ordered it last November...and I haven't gone a day without playing my guitar since then. I spend more time playing it outside of Rocksmith now as I'm working on improving my technique, but RS was the biggest factor in getting me so motivated to play again.
Just a warning...since then I've spend upwards of $3,000 on guitars and other gear, it's hard to resist new gear. >.>
