So as the topic suggests this thread will be about how to get the best out of your guitar playing experience while using Rocksmith 2014. Rocksmith has a number of tunings that are available for many songs especially with all the customs out there. However unless you have the appropriate strings on your guitar you may experience a lot of note recognition problems. I was going to write a long out post but instead I found mostly what I was looking for with a google search. This Link in detail (and much better than I would be able to) how to take care of your strings and how to choose which strings are best for you. For Rocksmith if you tend to play songs in low tunings you will most likely be forced to change your strings to a heavier gauge string because of the recognition issues. Tunings like Drop D and C Standard or D Standard will cause you many recognition problems if you are using standard .09 - .46 gauge strings. For these tunings it is recommended that you use either .10(.11) - .52(.56) or heavier gauge strings. The following links which were provided by @ are great videos with explanations on how to setup a guitar. Everyone should watch them and read the article I linked as it has some great information available. String Tension (D’Addario recommended) After replacing strings to a thicker (or thinner) need to do: 1. Setting Up Your Stratocaster Guitar: Adjusting The Truss Rod 2.

So whenever I touch the strings I hear a horrible buzzing sound and it doesn't matter where on the strings I touch, I've calibrated and it does nothing. The game used to run fine and one day I just turn it on and I get annoying buzzing sound. All my knobs are maxed which was never a problem, now I have to lower the volume a little and it goes away, however the notes sound terrible when I play and then note detection fails at times when I lower the volume. This is all when I'm in Treble, which again was never a problem, when I switch to Rhythm it goes away...even at max volume but the sound is pretty bad. My rocksmith configuration file is default I've changed nothing, it's what the game came with. My graphics are set to custom with almost everything off. My strings are brand new straight from the shop, for I thought it was the strings that were causing the problem but obviously not. Could you please shed some light... :c
Hi all, I recently charted a song that is played on a tenor guitar. A tenor guitar only has 4 strings. To tune a standard guitar to match a tenor, you need to tune only the top 4 strings, the ones normally tuned to DGBe. The custom tuning to match a tenor guitar is in 5ths: AEBF#, respectfully on those strings. And then capo to the third fret. When you set the number of strings in EOF to 4, it colours them red-yellow-blue-orange. I thought this may be confusing, since in the song I charted you will be playing on the strings that are normally blue-orange-green-purple. So, I left the bottom two strings. Is there a better way to manage this, or some way to tell EOF to colour the strings differently? Thank you for your help on this.
