If you know a woman who has been trying to learn guitar for years *ahem* and always gives up after just a few days *ahem!*, then they really need Rocksmith in their lives. I know because I’ve been learning on and off for 15 years now! Rocksmith 2014 is an incredibly intelligent game… well, it’s not really a game. It’s more of a full on education, but in the funnest sense of the word. I recently bought the PC version and I’m amazed at how effective it is and I can already see an improvement in my playing. Setting up is simple. Just one cord that turns your electric guitar in to a controller and your TV in to an amp. From there you can choose your career mode – do you want to be a bassist, lead guitarist or rhythm guitarist? – where you learn to play familiar songs from bands like Nirvana and Queens of the Stone Age, or you can select arcade style games that teach you how to play scales and more. This is a gift I would of loved if I didn’t already own it, especially 15 years ago!
I hope this list helps some of you! What are your favourite items? What kind of gift ideas would you like to see next? Let me know below and I’ll include some ideas in my next post.
