    wow, good to see folks in my age group. I wish I had started earlier too but I guess it's never too late. I won't impress the girls with guitar skills anymore but still have fun playing...

    Granted, I'm not reading every post in every thread, but there seems to be more civility in these forums compared to some of the other 'uber-leet gamer' forums I've visited over the years. People, when posing questions, aren't immediately flamed for being a noob, or a moron, or worse. With older players, I don't think that's a coincidence, or I'd hope it's related, in some small way.

    When I first started using the 'nick, I had a 95 750. Now I'm riding a Hayabusa. 105,000 miles on it. Been to every accessible state and Canadian province.

    And just to note. I started learning a year ago. Rocksmith is really helping with getting quicker, especially chord transitions.

    I wouldn't necessary state that the age group is the reason this isn't happening (I'm 21). Instead, I think its because these forums are less of a gamer community and more geared towards musicians/aspiring musicians (or guitarists) which incites a much more mature audience and atmosphere.

    Since purchasing Rocksmith, its been the one and only 'game' I've really only been looking forward to on my PS3.

    Well, I'm still not giving my age...but I will asmit to ya'all that I am not the oldest one here. Ya'all already know I'm not the youngest, either. *smile*

    This is awesome, glad to see how many "older" folks there are learning guitar because of this game. At 40 years old I have a hard time labeling myself as "older" but I guess it's time to face the music... I'm not a kid anymore either. I've probably bought and sold 8-10 guitars in the last 20 years because I keep telling myself I'm going to learn but I have never had the patience to put n much time. All I've ever learned is a few chords here and there and thats it. Now I find myself playing 6 hours a day at times! The way this game works visually apparently suits me better tan any other learning method I've come across. No, you don't learn to read music, but that doesn't matter to me because all I want to do is play. RS is awesome!
