Rocksmith for learning
I have absolutely no musical experience whatsoever.
I'm currently using Rocksmith as my bass learning tool (until I can afford to take lessons during next summer. I hate being poor.) and I am taking a music theory class as well.
By using Rocksmith for playing bass and taking a class for music theory, would you guys say I'm on a decent path for an absolute beginner?
Or should I be doing something else? Currently, in person lessons are not an option until I'm out of school :atoz:
The internet is a great tool that i didnt have when i first started out. There are countless videos on youtube that could help you learn any number of techniques or songs. Just search for what you want to learn, any more than likely someone has posted a video to teach it. Have fun.
Personally, I think what you're doing is a good way to start. Rocksmith will prepare you physically and you will be learning songs you like right off the bat ( a nice source of inspiration, IMO), and the theory will give you a good foundation and prepare you for becoming a "serious" musician. You may want to branch out at some point and maybe take lessons or the like, as shwabilly said, there are tons of resources on the web that can help. I kinda wish I had RS and the stuff on the web when I was starting out, I believe I would have turned out a much better player than I am now.
As long as you work at it, and are committed to improving, you should do fine.
I'll end up using youtube or something to get down some songs I like that rocksmith doesn't offer. other than that, it looks like I'll stick to what I'm doing until I can afford lessons.
