ROCKSMITH THREAD

What does /v/ think? Anyone play?

Piracy fags: you can play without denuvo and without a rocksmith cable. You don't even need to hook up your guitar in 'disconnected mode'.

I tried picking up rocksmith in 2014 because I really wanted to learn how to play guitar, but it has stupid uplay shit, and I havent even checked if I'm able to log back in.

Also I have smooth baby hands like a mong and I'm kind of evasive about getting them calloused. I dont like how callouses feel

I'm fixing up a 90s YN (Taiwanese) Squier Stratocaster I found in a dumpster. Do buyfags care if the nut/washer on the cable connector is not original? I don't really care, but I prefer to keep my controllers in pristine state just in case I might sell or trade up.

>stupid uplay shit

I've got a legit copy and I don't need to login with UPlay. The game DOES lock this one song (I think by Mastodon?). As far as I know, pirates can just download a cracked copy and either use a authentic cable or a USB guitar interface via a mod. I might just go with that in the future.

>Also I have smooth baby hands like a mong and I'm kind of evasive about getting them calloused. I dont like how callouses feel

Unless you're playing more than 3 hours a day on the regular, I don't think you should worry. On average, I play for about an hour a day and I don't feel anything different.

I quickly built up my own calluses through some binge playing and my fingers felt a little weird for a while, like I lost sensitivity, but that very quickly went away again. Now, it doesn't feel different at all now. The skin looks a little like plastic, but I don't mind.

Gotta suffer for the art, son.

Oh, shit. I think I know what you're talking about.

I have a steam copy which complains about logging into UPlay when you start the game up. You can get past that window by pressing escape and then pressing enter. It asks you for UPlay login details (which you don't need to give), and then it asks you if you're SURE you wanna cancel logging in. That's just what I do. No leaderboards, but I don't give a shit.

My nigger

Rocksmith helped me a lot with learning how to play back when it first came out. I owned both the original and the 2014 edition and ported over all the songs to the new edition. I’m shocked this game doesn’t get talked about more often. Are they still putting out new content for it? I know shit like Rock Band would have updates for more than like half a decade

>>16819755

I’ve played guitar so long I don’t even notice my callouses. All it takes is practice anon. Start on Hard Mode with an acoustic guitar since the strings are fatter than a normal electric. It’ll hurt at first, but practice daily and you’ll build up resistance in no time.

No one is going to tell if the nut is different, I've had them fall out of several guitars and I eventually just bought a handful of them from a hardware store to keep incase they fall out again or if one of my mates need one. However Squier Strats aren't worth much so trading up isn't really going to happen unless you can trick some dummy into it. But for a free dumpster guitar you cant beat it, I always keep a cheap B C Rich around that I practice on so I don't mess up my good ones.

>>16819795

Yeah they release a new song pack every week still. Also there is CustomForge where people upload songs that aren't officially released, and if you get lucky and download a song that gets released as DLC you wont have to buy it unless the custom track is shit or such.

I just saw a dumb-ass sell a really nice $140 value guitar for about $50 on some online auction site. Might pick it up myself at this point.

If you can't spend $50 on a used guitar and some strings? I wonder what your toaster and life looks like.

I feel you, poor-bro.

>I'll never be Judas Priest.

Don't let your dreams be memes. I picked up Rocksmith and made me a better player than ever. Apparently, there's plenty of salty guitar fags being elitist about "muh music theory", "muh note reading", but you can just learn that shit on your own time.

After about 70 hours of practice and research? I feel like I'm just shy of calling myself 'intermediate'. I had some music lessons ages ago when I was a kid, and that definitely helped me out conceptually. But after 70 hours of practice? I can I can now comfortably play a lot of songs at a level where I'm not embarrassed to play in front of friends including this one favorite I pretty much mastered.

<If you'd like to play songs and think that'd be massively fun? Get RS and try it out on a loaner.

<The secret is to keep the fun in practicing and honing your skills. Rocksmith just makes it infinitely more fun and rewarding to practice songs, especially when starting out.

I'm not even shilling when I say that RS helped me get over that initial bump. Before, I felt like an amateur. But playing a full song? I feel like I know guitar now.

It won't turn you into Glenn Tipton, but that's just a matter of more practice. Besides, 90% of people won't be able to tell you suck if you mess up a little, it's already impressive enough if you know how to play Breaking the Law.

Just get a pick or multiple finger picks. Especially if your guitar has steel strings. You won't get any calluses as long as your fingers do not touch strings too often.

You should be more worried about carpal tunnel or RSI anyway.

The strumming hand isn't the problem, maybe if you play for several hours a day it'll hurt a bit. The calluses appear on the other hand as your fingers have to press down on the metal strings. To make it worse, while you don't know what you're doing you'll press down harder than you actually need to so in the beginning it hurts a bit. It isn't too bad though, with some practice your skin will get hard enough that it won't hurt (if you practice a lot it will though, but unless you're still in school you probably won't practice enough for your fingers to bleed).

>good songs to learn chords with

The ones you like listening to. Keeping it fun is the best way to keep practicing. I like a lot of music, so finding something to play isn't a problem for me personally. As for understanding how chords work? You can recognize the chord shapes and reapply it elsewhere on the fretboard. I find this way easier to learn and deal with than rote memorization.

Pic related.

If you wanna rote memorize chords? Try one of those chord minigames. Castle Chordead is fun, but that shit always fails to recognize my chords so I just gave up on that.

For finger/muscle practice, just play what you want. I've had a lot of fun with REM - Losing My Religion. Apparently, some people find that strumming pattern weird so that might help you learn as well. I think the secret to RS is that it gradually teaches you more chords as you learn new songs.

>>16820325

When I got into RS, my fingers hurt so bad I just grabbed some gloves and played with that. While sweaty, I could still feel the strings and play. I quickly got my skin used to the conditions, though. Why don't you go buy some 'finger condoms' to put on your fingers? That's an actual thing they sell, you know...

I haven't tried all of the minigames but they seem to be well-varied for technique practices. What I've been really impressed with is the Session mode, where you can set up to like 4 AI instruments to jam with you in a certain key. It dynamically changes with your activity even. You can set it to shift keys at times and everything. It's super interesting and is a really cool way to learn keys for someone like me who's spurned theory their whole life. It shows the notes for the key on screen and everything.

From my understanding of the program, alot of people use it as a tool to learn certain pieces. From what I was told, it's a terrible way to learn since you ONLY learn to play the Piano visually, instead of teaching you the basics like reading sheet music and music theory in general. Now I don't know if they do, but if they let you have a way to read the sheet notes and also how to read them, then I would say it would be alright.

>RS helped me get over that initial bump

That's exactly what I think too and I loved RS for it. Practicing sucks and we all know it, but RS turns practicing into a game. It's not going to "teach" you too much outside of speed and ease of movement, but frankly I think that's probably the most important part for a beginner: feeling comfortable with a guitar in your hands. It's no substitute for actual learning though, because any jackass can learn to mimic another guitarist by learning their songs. Also worth mentioning that learning to play Painkiller was my personal white whale and RS helped me master it, and I don't know if the pride from that will ever go away

Still play every other day, 90% bass. Mix it up with Comfy and tough (why is weebshit so funky and so difficult).

There is a couple of things to recommend to anons picking it up:

Do the fingerings as indicated. Don't get lazy and end up with a shitty weak pinky.

Score and timing of each note isn't the best. You have to learn to partially ignore the scoring and focus on hitting notes accurately in a good-sounding manner. You can end up as a weak player with excuses like "hey it sounds bad but I got 100% on the notes though!"

Bass extra tip: use both fingers to pick. Don't be a sad anon who learns wrong (saw one on youtube….thumb only, sad…)

So I've been playing a lot outside of the game as of late. The progress I've made is absolutely staggering. I highly recommend toying around with software effects and just jamming to some rocksmith videos on youtube. The mixing on Rocksmith kinda sucks at times.

Dunno about you windows fags, but JACKd and rakarrak are a fucking blessing. Guitarix can kinda suck my balls, though.

Regarding mixing, there's no escaping it in Rocksmith. I've gone with Music set as low as 40 and I still can struggle to hear the instrument over the track.

I got a cheapo second hand amp and a cheapo ABY box.

One output to Rocksmith cable, one output to amp. Adjust volume so it's not overpowering and bam, makes it nice.

Do you get any problems when you try to use your bass in RS? The last time I tried to use mine it picks up super low or not at all. It's weird because it used to work perfect, then I stopped using it for a while and when I booted it up recently it gave me that can't log into uplay shit and now my bass wont work in it.

Officially, you "need" a 'rocksmith' cable to get into the game. But you can apply a "NoCable Patch" made by some Russians.

I was too dumb/lazy to look into that for any amount of time so when I found out my pirated copy didn't immediately go into the menu, I just gave up bought the game on steam for 10 bucks, which STILL needed the fucking cable for 30 bucks.

Whenever your recording setup changes because you're using different cables, instruments or grounding, you should take the 15 seconds needed to re-calibrate. I've had awful experiences with Rocksmith simply because my shit wasn't grounded. I could calibrate all day, but an ungrounded setup remains a noisy one.

Your setup is grounded, is it not?

Cheater plugs don't count unless you're the 1 in 100 burgers who knows what's up.

tl;dr: ground & calibrate.

Does it show up as an audio device in windows?

Then you can use it in Rocksmith's own "Microphone mode" or in the no cable patch.

I think the no cable patch simulates your audio interface as an official cable.

Since you need the no cable patch anyways because the game doesn't let you in the main menu without it.

Just remember to properly calibrate and you're good to go.

Please note that calibration (and maybe note detection?) is a little different in mic mode vs cable mode. (Acoustics over a mic sound different than electrics over a cable, right?)

Please report back when you get it working.

You might get some issues with channels, it takes instrument from Channel 1 only. I'm not sure if there's a way to flip channels on a Solo that has Mic in 1.

Because collector tards pay for novelty value. That's something I get it, though. People want a nice vintage instrument. I can sort of understand that.

But it seems to me you can get a proper quality instrument for a lot less if you know what to look for and maybe do a little bit of work yourself.

>bullshit system they came up with

It's just "guitar tabs 2.0".

If they'd introduce sheet music, they'd have to either:

A) introduce it as some "tabs 3.0" notation introduced much later in the game (at which point: why would you learn yet another notation for that?)

B) Introduce it from the get go and have new players be even more confused and intimidated and overwhelmed when they don't hit the right notes. And then they drop the game, refund the thing and give bad reviews.

The power of Rocksmith is that you can pick it up fairly easily. It is intuitive and approachable, even by absolute beginners. It's something everyone understands: finger positions between frets. It's something real/tangible. It is the epitome of "easy to learn, hard to master". Not some abstract ink on a paper that isn't really looked at unless you forgot which note to play.

RS is for getting over that initial bump where practicing isn't really fun and you don't feel comfortable with a guitar in your hand. Also: fun party game if you trust your guests with your guitars.

Unless you read sheet music like you read text, it stays a slow and tedious process, which is something a beginner really does not need. With RS's notation, you get to hold a guitar in your hands and get somewhat competent at just playing, which is exactly what a beginner does need.

This is why I fucking love this game: I used to be sub-par at even playing any instrument at all but now I can play songs instead of somewhat hit the right notes some of the time. Practicing became infinitely more fun and productive. While my sheet reading speed is still awful, I know how 80% of the stuff works because music lessons 20 years ago. But reading sheet music won't make me a better guitarist, practicing will.

But that's not to say a sheet music minigame wouldn't do a lot of good.

tl;dr: Learn sheet music later, when you need it when you've got sheet music for something you wanna play. But if you're not comfortable with just playing your guitar/bass? Get into RS first and learn some songs. I think that's a lot saner way to get started.

Plenty of good musicians don't know how to read sheet music. It'll definitely make you a better player, though.

I see poorfags in this thread saying they can't afford a guitar. Do these guys have good computers? Because a computer is a lot more expensive than a guitar that you'd be using just to mess around with a video game.

I ask because I am also a poorfag, and my computer is a toaster laptop that I got as a gift (meaning they didn't know what they were getting and got what they thought looked nice on the outside) in like 2013 or 2014. I think I looked up recommended specs for Rocksmith once and they were surprisingly high for a game I assumed wouldn't be technologically impressive. But then a lot of the time, recommended specs are bullshit.

>tl;dr: can I play this on a toaster? Or should I continue saving up for a good computer before I can actually play this?

I'm interested in trying to learn guitar would something like 1st pic and link related work as a cheap beginner thing it seems to be unbranded? Pic two is a BC Rich Bronze Warlock Electric Guitar thats also 50$ on craigslist.

1st seems like its probably not a great guitar(although it does have great reviews) but decent to learn and comes with some bonus shit. 2 according to my search is fairly more expensive than its being sold for but doesn't come with the bonus stuffs and also isn't new and could have issues. Also doesn't look like it has all the features. Its worth more but and I like the design more but I think pic 1 may be better.

What is the best torrent for this game? I've done a search of my own and found some but I'm unsure of which is the best and also there is a lot of confusion on whether the remastered version is cracked. And apparently the original while great was utter dog shit compared to the remaster. I see on crackwatch that it is not cracked but some say it has been cracked. I'm also not sure if the CDLC works for pirates.

I hadn't put any thought into the pirating of the game before I bought the guitar but now I'm a bit concerned.

Any guitar will do when starting out, really. The only reasons you want other guitars are: tone, build quality or brand name.

Tone depends on a lot of factors (including pickup configuration). So it seems smart to get a guitar with a pickup configuration that suits you. And the tone you want depends on the music you play. What music do you want to play?

<build quality

<Brand name

Apparently, the skill of the luthier is really important to the quality and 'feel' of a guitar. I heard a luthier say that guitars shouldn't cost more than $500. Anything above that is brand name and hocus pocus. And retards continuously fall for hocus pocus. Case in point: modifying perfectly fine guitars with shitty/insane guitar mods that make their guitar play worse. I personally wouldn't buy modded guitars unless: whoever was tinkering knew what they're doing, I can undo the mod and there's a clear and stated reason why they installed it.

Something retards fall for continuously: expensive pickups and expensive capacitors. A $100 pickup is still the same basic electromagnet. The same with capacitors: the expensive 'high quality' caps are just sourced on aliexpress or at least manufactured in the same factory. A ceramic plate capacitor is and always will be a ceramic capacitor.

>would something like 1st pic and link related work as a cheap beginner thing it seems to be unbranded?

YES

tl;dr:

I recommend you buy something that hasn't been tampered with

You'll outgrow any beginner guitar with enough playing and after you've gotten familiar with guitars, you'll know what to buy then.

I heard the original was bad, but 'utter dog shit'? That's certainly a possibility, yes.

>now I'm a bit concerned

Don't worry, anon-kun. Rocksmith isn't all that expensive on sale ($10?), so whatever happens, you can still shill out $10 and get the official game + the no cable patch. As for the 'uncracked game'? I downloaded a torrent and the game launched fine. I still needed to nocable patch it, though.

Try this one: https://1337x.to/torrent/2593064/Rocksmith-2014-Update-7-Incl-ALL-DLC/

Chances are you'll run into what I did: not being able to get past the 'tuning' thing because it doesn't detect the cable.

So make sure you:

<nocable patch:

https://github.com/Maxx53/NoCableLauncher

<Use ASIO if your audio interface has ASIO drivers and you're not having any luck.

https://github.com/mdias/rs_asio

Please report back.

NOTE: Your PC line-in is not protected against the high voltage swings during strumming. You may blow up your line in by connecting your guitar up to that!

I did that for quite some time by turning the volume knob/pot on my guitar down. While this leads to a lower output voltage, strumming hard may still fuck your shit up. Also, if the volume control sliders in your software do not actually turn down the analog gain to the ADC but merely scale the volume after digitization? The software can falsely lead you to believe you're not hitting the inputs limits of the ADC, so you might still blow your guitar up. I've never seen this myself, though.

Only plug your guitar in on PC audio interfaces you don't mind blowing up. (Or use devices designed for guitar input)

That^ works but the CDLC stuff required a .dll (included) to function however my game doesn't launch if that .dll is in my root folder, take it out and it does run but the CDLC tracks don't launch so you're best off just unticking that in the torrent. Maybe that stuff will work on your set-up I dunno, but there's plenty to work with in the original + the OCCL stuff anyway.

Good luck have fun, it's interesting try out some shit you'd never usually listen to now and then, Elvis' Suspicious Minds taught me I occasionally misjudge where the D and G strings are and made me focus into not doing that so much. If you find yourself frustrated by how slowly something is picking up how you're doing there's a mode called 'Riff repeater' in the Esc options that can alter what percentage of notes is thrown at you in the track. if you select the whole track, up the difficulty & then go to 'Resume Song' it'll restart at that % difficulty and not submit you to the Riff Repeater loop.

'Master Mode' makes the notes fade then disappear if you manage to hit enough of them in a run, which is cool if you can remember that shit not quite so when you've played 20 tunes and then one you played an age ago pops up and throws an empty section at you which you can't remember, thankfully there is an option to turn it off in Esc too so they all display. Venue mode is just annoying as it has a fake crowd making noise in the background and visually shits up the screen.

Blitzkrieg Bop is the easiest tune to start with, it's great fun once you're past the first couple of weeks of finger grief, also watch out for strain in your right elbow I got a combo of golfers and tennis elbow from practising after doing weightlifting but managed to stretch my forearm into functioning again, once your finger tips feel like your heels you're getting there.

Oh yeah some of the DLC tunes are fucking weirdly draconian about you hitting all of the notes in tard mode before increasing the difficulty I had Linoleum by NOFX stuck on 27% for ages until I manually changed the difficulty on it and now I'm at 89% happens with a few others too.

You can manually increase the difficulty through riff repeater. New songs will sometimes start me out at 50% and that's annoying so I crank it up that way.

For others watching remember: don't rely on the games detection and scoring. Make sure you listen to how you are playing without lying to yourself.

Why is weebshit fun but stupid difficult?

As much as I love games and playing the guitar, I never played Rocksmith.. or Guitar Hero, for that matter. This one always seemed like the cooler idea though, since it taught people to actually play. I can't knock that.

>the original was utter dogshit compared to the remaster

In some ways yes. The original had a weird bug where if you had USB audio output (headphones for example) it either wouldn't work at all, or would duplicate all audio tracks so you'd hear both the original track and your guitar track echoed through your headphones. I never ran into that problem, but I did run into the issue where it was having a bitch of a time picking up the output from my Telecaster unless I had its volume knobs cranked to 11 and could only play through the lead pickup. I upgraded my guitar awhile later with Hot Rail pickups (highest output pickups you can put on a Tele) and it ironed itself out but it shouldn't have happened in the first place.

The remaster, on a technical level, was more competent, but they redid a lot of the tracks for no good goddamned reason. "Good Enough" by Tom Petty got a bizarre rework as far as the notes go and went from being difficult-but-possible to piss-easy, even on maxed difficulty. "The Thrill Is Gone" got the same treatment and I wonder if it had anything to do with the massive amounts of bent notes both songs had, but curiosity aside they really butchered those two tracks. I'm certain they changed others but those were two of my favorites.

I've played both to death and wish the time I'd spent on GH had been on this instead, though my Through the Fire and Flames score would suffer. Rocksmith is one of those rare gems that's both useful and able to make you laugh with genuine joy when you hit the flow of something that's been evading you. I'm surprised it's not gone multi instrumental.

Some of that jap noise is just ludicrous, it's like they delight in masochism.

The bronze series warlock is a pretty bad guitar, but it's fun which is why I'd honestly go for it. Personally I hate stratocasters. They are the most boring guitar on the face of the earth. The psychological part of the guitar plays a lot bigger role in enjoying music than most musicians want to admit.

You wont get jabbed with a warlock. You see that convex part on the bottom? It's perfect for putting your leg between similar to how this guy is with the flying V. It actually makes it easier to practice. Honestly though, you probably want to practice standing up it'll pay off in the long run.

Buy the cheapest thing you can. Get something from a pawn shop that looks and feels the way you like. Everyone outgrows their first guitar and as >>16839388 said, by the time you're ready for a better one you'll know what you want. My best advice without pushing my own personal preferences is when you see a guitar that interests you, pick it up, and even if you don't know how to make a single note, put your fingers on the strings and move your fret hand like you're playing all over the frets. Make sure to press the strings down from time to time. If the movement of it feels good, insofar as the neck isn't too big or small for your hands, the strings aren't too far off the board etc, then it's worth considering. I've held $5000 guitars with necks that are so beautifully over-lacquered that they're sticky even when perfectly clean, and I've held $100-when-brand-new guitars without a lick of varnish on them that move smoothly and feel great to play.

AMD Radeon HD 8450G. I saw some sites say that it wouldn't run, or only barely. But I've had other cases where they say games will run and they don't, or they say they won't run but they do. So I trust you anons more.

In the same boat here with the Scarlett Solo that I got for cheap a couple of years back. Currently debating picking up a 1/4" to XLR male cable and seeing if that allows me to tap into channel 1, but am worried that Focusrite has retarded ASIO drivers that will make the lag very noticeable between input and hearing what you play.

They have unique chimey/twangy sound all their own. Doesn't need to be a main, but if you stick around guitars long enough, it's nice to have one around.

he probably means that it's not just about the function but also about the form, much like oper8ors like to do military fashion to look cool and badass. what he means is that if the guitar you get doesn't really appeal you, looks like the guitar of a bum and it makes you feel like a bum in your own eyes, you'll probably be discouraged from playing.

i remember buying Guitar Hero in 2008 for the 360.. still 22 or 23 at the time… good fucking god

all these new versions of it remind me of how fun that was, how date it is now, how my own youth has fleeted, and how those who still play this seem desperately clinging to their own youth. i know this could be projection but i don't really see zoomers playing these games, i see millennial boomers, and it's sad as hell

A lot of musicians are very anti-style and uptight faggots. Especially on music forums. B.C. Rich gets a lot of shit, because a lot of their guitars look cool but are shit. They also have guitars that look cool and are amazing but are very expensive. Anyways, I hung around with these types a lot. They honestly killed my interest in music completely. It just wasn't fun.

You can achieve the same effect with a coil split and a phase switch.

You don't have to 'love' anything you just have to want to autistically improve or have a bit of fun. Just wiped down my fretboard and strings with a damp cloth, so much corona-chan in there it's a wonder my fingers haven't turned green.

>>16847018

Much like anyone who still likes Star Wars, anyone still playing GH is a fucking weird man-child, though it genuinely does teach you strum timing. Nu-versions past World Tour were iffy anyway and it's no wonder kids today aren't playing them as they're 'old' games and the young un's are too retarded to do anything but bash a screen with their thumbs.

Rocksmith isn't GH though, this literally teaches you how to play an instrument it's absolutely worth the time.

Check yourself before you wreck yourself. Don't you just fucking hate it how much time you wasted on that little plastic controller? We're actually learning to play guitar here.

I have no idea how you can somehow think playing an instrument is "clinging to youth" or "sad" or whatever. This shit is fun, difficult and 100% a pussy magnet. And you fuckin' know it.

Not to add to all the beginner request spam, but I'm left-handed and been looking to get into playing an instrument and I already picked-up a super cheap copy of Rocksmith during a Steam sale. But finding a suitable guitar has been a pain. I have enough money that I can afford a cheap one easily.

Main problem is I asked my musicfag friends about what to do and gave them multiple options. I asked about just learning right-handed (I use a mouse with my right-hand and played instruments when I was younger right-handed, so I am adaptable) and was basically told I'd just hit a wall eventually and that it wouldn't be intuitive. I asked about just re-stringing a righty guitar or playing it flipped like Hendrix and they said don't do that. I asked about buying left-handed guitars and was told that's a bad idea.

Can anyone here give a straight recommendation about what works best? Are any of you guys left-handed? What was your experience like learning to play?

You have three options, and no matter which you can play lefty.

1: Learn to play cottonpicking style, which is to say play a right-handed guitar, strung for a righty, left-handed. Probably wouldn't be great for Rocksmith but plenty of professional musicians have done it.

2: Buy a righty guitar, restring it for lefty. I don't give a shit what your friends say, there's nothing wrong with doing that. Hendrix did just fine. If you do this permanently you will need to either flip the nut (the little part that holds the strings to the head of the guitar) or buy a lefty nut. For the purposes we're talking about here - some cheap-ass pawn shop guitar you're just going to bang on while playing Rocksmith - just restringing it will be fine, but if you made a career out of playing music with a guitar like this you'd want the nut changed.

3: Buy a lefty guitar, but they're generally quite a bit more expensive.

Thanks for the swift response.

I think the main concern with "cottonpicking" is simply the lack of resources; it's an additional barrier to learning when all the guides are inverted. I don't suppose there's any chance Rocksmith has a mode that directly supports it? Your answer implied it doesn't. If I have to translate books I can live with that but it would be nice if Rocksmith could just do that for me.

Managed to do some research and find some sites that are geared towards left-handed musicians. I'm looking at their recommendations now. Seems like prices have gone up, though, since there's nothing under $200.

I might swing by the local used bookstore and check out their instrument section. If I can get something for $50 and just restring it and flip the "nut" then that's a lot more reasonable to me than the $250 or so I'd be looking at.

Although in a few months it might be a non-issue.

Either way, thanks for the advice. Hopefully I'll be joining you guys soon.

Don't buy a $50 guitar, whatever you do. Unless you really don't care to play afterwards. The lowest you should go is a used Squier or something (you can get some under $200).

Lefty here myself, but funnily, I was naive when I was young, and just played what someone gave me.. Basically forced myself to play Righty until it was too late to relearn the right way. In a funny way though, this has it's own advantages (faster fretting hand).
