30 Days of Rocksmith: Day 9 — Driving Over a Rock Station

[I’m learning to play the guitar by committing to 30 Days of Rocksmith. Here’s how I got started.]

I heard something weird in the car today during my morning commute. There was a strange sound I was unfamiliar with. Despite the fact that my vehicle is from 1992, it runs like a champ, and I’m intimately conscious of the different shakes, rattles, and rolls it tends to put out. All of them are accounted for. None of them are cause for concern. Except for this new sound I wasn’t used to at all.

Then I realized what it was: I’d tuned into a rock station on the radio.

I can’t recall at this moment what band was playing. The DJ didn’t hop on between tracks to tell me who it was. To be honest, it’s unlikely I’d recognize the name even the DJ had said it anyway. But there I was, not just tilting my ear toward this rock song, but listening specifically to the guitar-driven riffs. Even after this short period of time with Rocksmith, I could discern the guitarist’s hammer-ons from their individual picking. I could finally appreciate the finger-on-fret sound from the guitarist pulling off a slide or a quick series of fingerings.
