I picked up Rocksmith with bass this week (the bass version
just came out). It's pretty cool. The songs are great and it's a
lot of fun but I'm not sure it's a great learning tool.
I guess it can help you with the mechanics of playing (fretting,
plucking, playing along with other instruments) but I find the
way it presents the notes to be confusing. You, more or less,
have to memorize their string color assignments (e.g. E string
is red, A string is yellow, etc.) to see which notes are coming.
And it is sometimes difficult to read which fret you should be playing.
I think it would be better if they presented the notes more like
regular music -- like Guitar Pro. Instead of having bars
coming out of the screen, they could have put the bars in the
tablature part of a Guitar Pro field to indicate note duration.
I think that would allow you to more quickly/easily identify
the notes to be played.
They should have consulted me for that game.
