Win Rocksmith 2014: Learn Real Guitar

 In Homepage, Blog, Competition, Console, Xbox 360, PS3, Stories, PS4, Xbox One

Hear about a video-game that uses an instrument to control it and you probably imagine a simplified plastic version with buttons rather than strings. However, Rocksmith uses a real guitar to play the game and in so doing teaches players how to play.

The game detects the notes that are being played with the guitar and adjust the difficulty to match the ability of the player. As you progress it moves you from plucking the odd note to playing chords and complex guitar techniques.

As you can see in the video, combine this with some lessons and you have the perfect recipe for learning an instrument. Also, in my household, we don’t have to pester our son to practice. In fact it’s quite the reverse — he pesters us.

We have one copy of the game and a high end guitar to give away to one lucky reader (and a bonus copy of Shape Up the fitness game). What better way to kick off the new year as you mean to go on:

  • G400 Vintage Worn Cherry Epiphone Guitar (RRP £229.00)
  • Rocksmith 2014 (PS4 or Xbox One) (Approx RRP £49.99)
  • Shape Up on Xbox One (Approx RRP £39.99)

    I have so many favourite songs but… I think the one I’d love to learn first is ‘All Along The Watchtower’ by Jimi Hendrix… Great song – and I love his mastery of the guitar and… who doesn’t want to play like Hendrix?
    ;D

    Amazing prize! 😀
