I've been playing Rocksmith for bout a year and 4 months now, roughly 11 months as there are week breaks I stupidly took. I'm pretty decent, but I don't think I'm as good as I could be had I had lessons. I met a guy who is 40 2 years ago and he is absolutely insane at guitar, I'm talking slash style.. he played everything I said and it made me sick, especially Soothsayer by Buckethead.. he is a graded guitar teacher and bassist as well so after 2 years of contemplating this i decided the sooner I go up the sooner I learn more stuff, he gave me bargain lessons. I had my first lesson and he was expecting me to know jack-shit, I forget in my head how much rocksmith can improve you. I think he was surprised although i only know how to play some basic bands. Ramones, Radiohead, Blur, David Bowie, T.Rex, Green Day, Nirvana etc.. but we jammed on a lot, it was an hour lesson and he ended up keeping me an hour and a half as he was enjoying it (usually his students are children or older men, I think he liked jamming with a younger dude) I'm hoping to be in a band this summer. For anyone here contemplating giving up rocksmith, don't... I can't believe the parts i knew even with taking breaks but guitar lessons will motivate me to play weekly even more. Sorry about blabbing, pretty excited. Does anyone else here take lessons on top of Rocksmith? Are the lessons proving beneficial? What taught you more? I learned a fair bit and got shaped up on some bad habits.
