‘Rocksmith’ is the Best Way to Learn Guitar According to Research

According to a study conducted by the Research Strategy Group, the guitar game Rocksmith is the fastest way for rock noobs to learn how to play the guitar.

A study conducted in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas using hundreds of people backed an earlier research study by Toluna Group, which found 95 percent of the Rocksmith players stating the game improved their guitar skills.

Ubisoft additionally revealed Rocksmith’s sales number rifted its way 1.4 million copies since it released in Oct. 2011. Three million songs have also been downloaded from the available 143 DLC tracks.

Players have collectively played an estimated 112 billion notes. If this number was averaged out, it  means each copy of Rocksmith has had 80,000 notes played on it.

Below is a picture with more details on the found statistics.


US senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft Tony Key said, “We’re thrilled with the results. “These studies confirm our view that Rocksmith is a huge success at teaching players real guitar skills that are highly effective and enjoyable and will last them a lifetime.”

More news on the franchise is to be announced at E3 next week, so stay tuned (pun intended).
