Hello dear would-be rockers! By now hopefully you’ve read Martin’s glowing review of Rocksmith 2014, and are also intrigued enough to have clicked the link that brought you here.
Your reward is a couple of videos of guitar playing, and a look at some of the modes you’ll get to play around with in the game, should you go and buy it.
In the first video, I play through Muse’s “Knights of Cydonia” before having a look at the riff repeater, then a little bit of session play.
The second (slightly shorter) video I play some “Pour Some Sugar on Me” by Def Leppard, then look at the Guitarcade to play some Ducks Redux, then finally have a go at the score attack version of Oasis’ “Don’t Look Back in Anger”. One thing I forgot to note, however, is how the tone for that particular song is nigh-on perfect, which is a hugely impressive thing to see. Apologies for the audio during the second part of this video, as there’s a bit of acoustic picked up by an over-sensitive mic!
