After reading the responses to this thread: http://customsforge.com/topic/685-how-do-you-spend-your-time-in-rs/
it seems to me what would be great to have would be a program that's more of a Rocksmith Lite -- something that could run on any platform, even (especially) tablets. Open-source, of course.
It wouldnt need all Rocksmith's extra crap -- basically, it could just be a (more versatile) Riff Repeater. Since that's what most of us end up using anyway.
You'd load a song or a playlist of songs with a standard file management interface.
The default would be to play the entire song -- but you'd have the ability to set loop points anywhere you like within a song.
You'd have full control over the speed - slow down entire songs or even entire playlists of songs or just certain songs in a playlist.
You'd be able to pause and resume playback and you'd be able to scroll through the tab to look at the notes/chords/riffs you're not sure about.
I like Rocksmith's noteway, and even though the color choice of the strings could be improved on (this should be user-defined), the idea of using color to identify strings is a good one.
Ideally, preparing songs for playback should be an easy process - perhaps a companion program capable of isolating guitar parts and transcribing the tab for them, so that anyone can prepare and play any song they wish.
Since we already own the hardware -- the cable -- which seems to me to be the most difficult part of this, shouldn't this be possible?
I'm really wishing I'd studied programming, way back when...
