The Xfm Breakfast Show is on a mission. Work Experience Steve is incompetent, foolish and unpopular. But all that’s about to change. We’ve hooked him up with Rocksmith, the new game that can help anyone learn to play guitar.
So by plugging it in, Steve will become talented, charming and desirable. Well, he’ll improve his guitar skills at least.
Under the guidance of Danny Wallace, Steve will be embarking on a musical journey, which will culminate in the ultimate challenge; performing a song live at Xfm’s Winter Wonderland.
Every week, Work Experience Steve will be filling us in on his progress, so you can keep up to date with the trials and tribulations of his mission.
Will he uncover a secret gift for the guitar or will he fall at the first hurdle and go off in a huff?
We’ll be following his every move from learning the basics, to busking on the streets and getting tips from serious musicians.
Want to get your hands on Rocksmith and impress your mates with your guitar skills?
We’re giving away a copy of the game, a PS3 to play it on and an Epiphone Les Paul Junior Guitar.
See how Work Experience Steve is getting on by watching the latest video updates.
Rocksmith is the next stage in the evolution of the guitar game.
You can plug in any electric or bass guitar to your console and develop real skills while playing real music.
There are over 50 tracks to play from artists such as Radiohead, Muse, The xx and The Black Keys.
You can also plug in a second guitar and go head-to-head with mates or play together as lead and rhythm guitar.
