A Serious Game

A flaw in most music / rhythm games is that they don’t actually teach you how to play any real instrument.

While browsing Amazon today, I saw a gaming product that’s pure genius… a game that teaches musical skills – “Rocksmith”.

Essentially, the game has a cord that lets you plug in any guitar to your gaming console. You can play the game and learn with / on your own guitar. Assuming it works well… what a good idea / product! I haven’t seen anything like this for guitar before – is this a first?
