It’s a Gibson knockoff

The guitar I’m borrowing is a Gibson knockoff. Couldn’t find a price for the knockoffs, just the real ones. So I have no idea how much it’s worth. It works with Rock Smith, so I could care less if it’s a knockoff.

Rock Smith works

Looks like it doesn’t like my cheap walmart guitar. I was told it was mostly tuned, probably why it was easy to tune it. Holding the guitar can be painful, and trying to put your fingers on the right strings sucks too. Doesn’t seem to hurt when you strum it with your fingers on the strings. I did the chord lesson, did horrible too.

Skinnier fingers and a bigger hand would help.

Will a different guitar work with Rock Smith?


Borrowing a guitar from my mom’s ex husband, not sure why he’s letting me borrow a guitar. What’s the level for on it? Is it one of those guitars that stay in tune if you flip the level? Grandma was talking about that. I flipped the switch both ways, so if that’s what it does, I probably will have to tune it. How much does he want for the guitar and bag? That bag is way nicer then my cheap walmart guitar came with. I get paid on the 1st.

If it works, I’ll give my neighbor Jack my cheap ass guitar, maybe.

Damn hackintosh is dead, can’t see if tuning works with Garage Band.

I give up

Can’t tune my guitar with Rocksmith. It just keeps saying not to hit the other strings, and then it says to tighten it. If I keep tightening it, I’ll break the string. I think my guitar is broken. I did loosen it, and eventually it said to loosen it more. Going to get lots of complaints if I keep doing the beginning of Rocksmith. You have to strum the strings really loud to calibrate it. I couldn’t tune this guitar with my computer either. Jason tuned it with the thing I bought. Should of left it how it was and canceled the tuning.

I could also be an idiot and hitting the other strings. Wouldn’t surprise me.

Can get a new guitar for 200 bucks at Guitar Center. 100 bucks for a crappy kit on Amazon.

Not sure Rocksmith will work with an out of tune guitar.

Guitar is fixed

Jason showed me how to change the strings, getting them off is probably harder then getting them on. He also tuned it with the 20 dollar tuner I got. Might need to plug HDMI cable back into hackintosh, so I can do the free lessons in GarageBand.
