Rocksmith 2014 is the second iteration of the Rocksmith series, they are basically tools designed to help you learn and practice to play the guitar and/or a bass guitar, the 2014 version is a massive software update rather then a direct sequel, so playing the first isn't required, but there is enough new stuff and improvements in the second version to justify buying it if you do own the original. Now the game does run on a triple monitor setup, but it only renders a 16:9 aspect ratio, which as far as I'm concerned is probably for the best for this kind of game, the last thing you need when trying to learn something is to have distractions in your peripheral vision, but the ability to use the resolution is nice to have as it means it won't mess up your desktop every time you run it.
The game itself does require a few things before you can use it, firstly it requires a real guitar or bass, as how are you meant to learn how to play with them, the second thing it needs is a special cable called Rocksmith Real Tone Cable, unfortunately the game explicitly searches for this cable so without using some sort of work around you have to use there cable to connect your guitar to your PC.

The video itself is part analysis, part walkthough and part waffle, feel free to like or dislike my video and comment are always welcome too.

"FOCUS" ;p

Great review, interesting to see how the games works and performs.
You did fairly well with Muse there, come a long way since them nights we played Rock Band back at the apartment after the indie game convention! :)

Focus indeed, if I had been doing maybe I wouldn't of butchered the Bohemian Rhapsody's solo ^^ Unnatural Selection is one of the tracks from the original that I had played the most, so I knew it fairly well, you should of heard the attempt I made before I recorded this one, I was way off tempo, but then that whole video was a bit to unfocused so I scraped the 45 minutes of footage and did it again. :)
