Would you pay for a TAB enabling DLC? If so, how much?
I posed this question on the Ubisoft forums and I am curious what response I would get here... I set up a Poll at Ubisoft... here is the link:


It seems there is a new game coming out soon which displays the note in TAB form from the very beginning. With that on the horizon, I bring this post as s challenge to the RockSmith developers to match that new game in functinoality...

I would absolutely pay upto $15 for DLC that enabled a TAB view instead of the "Video Game" play style... (and when I press "pause", don't cover up the notes OR disable audio)

So let's see who else agrees....

Would you pay for DLC that enabled TAB game play? and how much would you pay for it?

The 4 possible answers on the other poll
1. I will not pay for TAB-DLC. I like it just the way it is.
2. I will not pay for TAB-DLC. I want it, but it should be free.
3. I will pay up to $15 for DLC that will enable a TAB style game play.
4. I will pay up to $25 for DLC that will enable a TAB style game play.

I really want it, but yes it should be free. This is an obvious lack in this software.
However, i still would pay something like 5$.

I'd rather have a different product. Rocksmith uses a video game play style because it IS a video game. Rather than make it pretend to be something it isn't (which would need far more than just slapping a guitar tab display over it) the ideal would be a new product geared to teaching with both tab and musical notation.

No. I wouldn't use it (at least for a long time) even if it was free. As a complete beginner, tabs would render the game unplayable to me. The noteway concept may have been the creation of video games, but it is a marvelous notation system for video formats. As someone mentioned on the Ubi forum, it might be nice to have the ability to print out tabs for self-study. The game really sucks at letting you play your own pace.

If you want to print ASCII TAB, you may use a tool, which is available in the alt.sources usenet group (subject "Rocksmith SNG file to guitar ASCII TAB converter" or in the Google archive).
The tool is command line and produces text tabs. Additionally it does not reproduce the timing accurately, but if you need just the sequence of notes it can be quite useful.
It is written in Python, so it may be easily improved. It seems to be written rather for Linux, but I succeeded to run it in Cygwin on Windows. I haven't tried if it works with Python installed on Windows without Cygwin.
The last version prints also the chord diagrams, so you can practice at your own pace.

3: I would find that useful, for sure.

the "Rocksmith SNG file to guitar ASCII TAB converter" is absolutely not user friendly... :-(
