James Recommends Rocksmith 2014, a game that teaches you how to play guitar. Building on the popularity of games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band, Rocksmith adapted the formula that convinced so many players to learn guitar into a detailed and thorough simulation. The game detects each chord you play through a cable that attaches your real guitar to a computer or console. You can play popular songs and learn at your own pace as the game adjusts to your skill level. Rocksmith makes it fun and easy to pick up a guitar, with a game to track your progress and reward you for improving.

Thanks for additional footage!
