Seen an ad for this site/game/program the other day and decided to try it out. Still going through the beginner stuff but I gotta say I am pleasantly surprised with it.
Designed to help teach you to play guitar it starts from the basics and pulls off the whole process A LOT better than Rocksmith. Covering actual basics and showing you a hand to show which fingers you should be using. It is available for free with up to an hour of play per day (starts out at 5 minutes and you get more with invites, but i think the extra time is permanent). There are also monthly, yearly, biyearly and permanent options. Available for windows or mac.
Nice thing over other programs: You can play an acoustic with your computer's built in mic. You can plug your electric in with a variety of options (1/4" to 1/8" cable into the mic plug in, usb interfaces, etc) or you can again use the normal computer mic and play through your amp like normal.
Plus if you don't like the songs available or breeze through them, you can use Guitar Pro tabs to play whatever song you desire.
Thanks for introducing me to this site, checking it out now.
I clicked the invite link you posted to register. Hoped it helped!
EDIT: I must say, so far I am really liking this game.
Sure you only start with 5 mins each day in the free version, but it is free nonetheless.
I can also use my usb cord rather than buying a rocksmith cord.
glad you are enjoying it so far, if you have a friend try it out just make sure they confirm their account by clicking the email link so that you get your extra time, and it is a permanent increase in your daily time up to an hour max.
