Overview

Rocksmith 2014 expands upon the initial Rocksmith with new songs, enhanced user interface and the addition of new games and lessons to help players play guitar. Using any real guitar or bass with a 1/4-inch jack socket players can connect to the game through an audio jack-to-USB cable (both supplied and available separately) to play and learn songs through Rocksmith's various lessons and licensed songs.
