    I will definitely buy this on day one.
    I’ve bought a guitar a few years ago, before my wife got pregnant and I never found the time and motivation to learn how to play (especially since I don’t want to be a pro but just learn how to play a few songs for my family and friends).

    I wanted to get a method which could be fun and accessible and this could be exactly what I was looking at, especially with the adaptive difficulty (if it works well). Even the mini games seem REALLY good as they make you practice basic moves like slides or make you remember the position of cases and strings so that it can come “naturally”.
    It is all a matter of gradients and I think this game could have it right.

    Let’s hope it is and that there will be a decent DLC content (not fan of DLC in general but I think here it could be useful)

    Iam really interested in learning to play some of my favourites band songs with this game, i am basecally a drum player, but i did always practice with guitars too, but i dont know if in reality one could learn to play the songs with this game?, it does really work?, if thats the case i will be very interested in getting this game.

    Yes, it works Manu, me and my brother got it for ps3 and it’s only game my brother is playing for months, he learned how to play songs from the game without needing to use the game as orientation, but he didn’t followed what the game recommends like I do, he plays the songs he likes over and over until he memorizes it.

    But take me for instance: I don’t have time to play games, only in the weekends now, so I play only a little of it, the problem is that I need to use the game to play since I don’t play it everyday and I follow what the game recommends(doing this you will learn the basics for all the songs, learning all the techniques, and allowing you to play any song any time, but the donwside is that you need more time to master a song)

    And the minigames are really fun, and they are good to learn the techniques(the hardest one in my opinion is harmonic notes)

    I’ve read some reviews from the US (game is already available there) and also many video reviews from users and it seems the game is a really nice tool to learn how to play some songs, hence my interest and decision to take it.

    A completely honest review of the game from a hardcore music fan, gamer and guitar player: http://www.thegamingvault.com/2011/10/review-rocksmith-360ps3/

    His Twitter is @kylegaddo . I know he’s still playing the game a year on, so he can probably answer anything you can throw his way.
