Rocksmith+ is a subscription service that teaches players how to play guitar and bass through their favorite songs.

Rocksmith+ is a subscription service that teaches players how to play guitar and bass through their favorite songs. The title builds upon the award-winning Rocksmith method, which has helped almost five million people learn how to play guitar.

Compatible with acoustic, electric, and bass guitars, Rocksmith+ will start with thousands of songs and grow to millions more in the future, within genres spanning from rock, classic, indie, alternative, hip-hop, pop, metal, country, Latin, R&B, and more. At launch, Rocksmith+ will have a variety of authentic arrangements that represent songs the way the artists originally played them, and all songs in the library will be playable with chord charts for players to hum and strum to.

Users can take advantage of an entire suite of new and improved practice tools including Riff Repeater, wherein they can directly practice specific riffs in their favorite songs; and Adaptive Difficulty, wherein Rocksmith+ dynamically adjusts to a guitar player's skill level while they play. These tools are designed to give guitar players control over their learning journey.

To ensure we provide the best guitar learning service, we have decided to delay Rocksmith+ until 2022. We will use this opportunity to incorporate user feedback from our Closed Beta. We are convinced that this new release plan will give us time to deliver a smooth experience for all guitar and bass lovers.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. We can’t wait to share more about Rocksmith+ soon.

Rocksmith+ is the only subscription service that offers interactive music learning using official song masters and powerful real-time feedback. In addition, users will receive access to free online videos to learn about proper technique, music theory, gear, instrument care, and more.

Users can play with an acoustic guitar or an electric instrument and amp using the Rocksmith+ Connect mobile app, which offers phone-as-mic technology. By pairing their mobile device with their PC or console, the on-board microphone can track their guitar – allowing them to play with no additional gear needed. Rocksmith+ is also compatible with consoles using the Rocksmith Real Tone Cable. For PC users, Rocksmith+ is compatible using the Real Tone Cable or existing guitar interfaces on electric and acoustic-electric instruments.
