I kinda got behind in this forum, because I just spent an all expenses paid trip to San Francisco to meet up with a couple of my online groups, Rocksmith and YouVsTheYear.

Damn, that was a fun and rewarding experience. I might be off to North Carolina next. :thumb:

My part starts at bit after 27:00 in this video. Worth listening to the whole thing, especially Elisa talking about doing her doctorate thesis over this game. :)

The note track being shown is out of sync for sure. I could feel I was a bit out of time with the actual song at times, just couldn't find the "pocket". And some ugly bends and plenty of flubs. No starting over, done in 1 take. Me in all my ragged glory. Still fun. :laugh2:


More pics to follow.

This is their stream mixing setup for the https://www.twitch.tv/rocksmithgame/videos/all stream.

This is the green room (or blue), where I we sit to watch and support the others ... and get nervous waiting our turn. :laugh2:

They wined and dined us very well the whole trip.

you look happy!

i was out there over the summer and about shat myself driving to Miur Woods.


That looks awesome.

I did not get much free time. I did manage the run to GGB the first afternoon, then to Broken Guitars (Billie Joe's, of Green Day, guitar shop) the last afternoon.

Other than that I had to run early in the morning, as they kept us hooked up all day.

Sounds like a fun trip. I'm quite familiar with that area, as I grew up out there, and get back every couple of years. At least the Embarcadero is relatively flat. It's amazing how meeting "online communities" in real life can extend your group(s) of friends ! Congratulations.

Thanks. Yep just that one hill at the square, and then back up to the hotel on like Bush and Powell.

Sounds like a hell of a trip..Is that something Rocksmith puts on..

Yes. That streaming link I posted was a link to their old streams. Here is a link to their Twitch channel https://www.twitch.tv/rocksmithgame. They do a live stream every Thursday around 5pm CST based around the week's DLC. Then they do another .. I think on Monday's around 3pm ... where is just any subject related to the game or guitars that they or the listeners can dream up.

It is usually just the local Ubisoft Rocksmith Development team, but they bring in guests every so often.

I really feel lucky, to have been a part of this.

Right on, man!
Big fan of RS, I play for at least an hour every time I plug in my guitar, it’s a great way to jam along to your favourite dlc songs.
I still prefer learning songs through tab though, for some reason it’s just easier for me to actually learn the song vs. Just playing along with it.

Looks like you had fun though, congrats!

Those are some mean chops.
Glad you had fun.
It's always great to hear stories of forum friends meeting up in person.
