Give me my hatchet...err, axe!
I've been spending a lot of time at work and I needed to treat/reward myself so I bought the Rocksmith game and started the 60-day challenge to learn guitar.

So far, it's been a lot of fun but a bit harder than I originally thought. I love Rock Band and Guitar Hero but this is five strings and 20+ frets harder. I'm starting off slow, but I think I can already play better than AC/DC.

The one thing that has surprised me is the amount of tuning a guitar needs and how many songs change between b and b-flat (or is it b-sharp?) The mini games are also well done and addictive. I hope I just don't quit on this like I have so many other tangent hobbies. (Rosetta Stone, I'm looking at you.)

And the, "played my first real six string ... played until my fingers bled," thing is true. My phalanges are a flame.
