  1. Excellent collection of tracks&superb work & skill in making all these custom tracks! Many Thanks :) Xacuit
  2. Hi Ovoid :) 99.9% of learning to play is playing!IStarted with Rs1 when it 1st came out.I played years ago&only knew bits,beginings&the odd reconisable rift,I wanted to play a track not bits!I tryed&tryed with tabulature,listen to (back then)records of tracks i wonted to learn trying to get the right rythum by following the tabulature&listen to the records(lifting the stylus&putting it back again&again lol),some friends also used to show me bits!The frustration of not being able to link tabulature&listening to the tracks together got the better of me&i stopped playing!I still had that wish to be able to play&1 day i decided to look into getting guitar hero to see if that could help me develop my rythum&therfore help me with playing a real guitar!This is when i found Rocksmith!I started looking on ebay for a cheap guitar!I found&won an Epiphone SG400 Pro,i went to game station the next day&bought Rocksmith,jump on the train to London,payed&collected my SG,got home put RS on(xbox 360 then)started playing(after going through the setup ect)the recommended tracks,Rolling Stone's-(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction&Black Keys-Next Girl,obviously being a beginner the DD was on!Sat there single notes twang-twang-twang got more notes twing-twang-twang-twing,tryed some other tracks(there wasn't many tracks i knew or even licked!)again twang-twang-twang!Puff don't think much of this!aint what i was expecting,aint as good as i thought it was going to be!I was disappointed with it but i kept at it cose my passion to be able to play was greater than my disappointment!I found tracks that i could get more&more notes(even tho i didnt perticulary like them)like The Cure-Boys don't Cry,2 top strings mostly!built this track up to all notes(ha im getting somewere!)tryed harder tracks that were way out my skill set(Avenge Sevenfold)but found there were parts of the tracks i was getting!Then i got Rs on pc found Smithy Anvil(which was the cdlc site before this 1)got cdlc's to play,i found Metallica-Am I Evil downloaded it played it&WOW!i played it better than i could ever had emagine!that was a massive turning point in my ability to play!I download tracks now&i have to put all notes in(if they have DD)to be able to play them anywere close!That is my experiance with Rs&i can now see that all the twinging&twanging in the beginning was wurth it!The slow buildup of notes help you move around the fret board,get familiar with positioning your fingers on certain fret's or strings untill you automaticilly position you finger on the 5th fret 4th string&slide to the 9th or power chord the 6th&5th strings on the 3rd&5th fret&jump to the 5th&4th string on the 7th&9th fret!Keep a it!IT WILL!come in the end if you really wont it to,as you get more familiar with the fret board you will start to learn different technics,palm mutting ect!Then 1 day you will find that you can play(like me not brilliant,but you can)&then tracks you play WILL!start sounding better the more you Play!Hope this give's you the incouregment to continue! :)These people are very helpfull https://www.facebook.com/groups/801980203218983/?ref=bookmarks
