Just started guitar this February, and I absolutely love it.
I got a Peavey and a beginner's CD for Christmas a long time ago, but I just wasn't mature enough to really make enough of it. I would drag it out every now and then and just kind of strum on the strings and finger some really notes, then throw it back in the closet for a few more months to a year. I guess I just wasn't at a point in my life where I could really sit down and learn something. At the time, I was always trying something, then giving up on it.
A few years later I got the first Rocksmith, played it once, and didn't touch it again until this summer. I got frustrated at the game for some reason and just quit. It might have been something with tuning or actually playing notes, I forget, but I just remember being really upset and giving up.
I got really bored one day, and looked at some guitars that I was left when my brother moved out. He never really got into playing and I guess he just never planned on trying to play again, so he left them for me. I heard about the new Rocksmith (Rocksmith 2014) coming out, so I though I might give it a try. I looked around for the cord for a while, couldn't find it, so I went to Guitar Center and grabbed a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter. A few hours, downloads, and tweaks later, I got it to work with Rocksmith 2014.
At first I sucked, but it was a fun kind of sucking. It wasn't the usual "Fuck this - this is stupid. I quit" kind of sucking, but a "This is pretty fun. I want to get better at this" kind of sucking. I eventually caved in and got a legit Rocksmith cable (I found the old one a couple of months later in my closet), and just started playing every day. Eventually I started going beyond the standard library and bought some DLC, and then got tired of that and started looking into custom songs.
The experience of playing guitar for me is amazing. I'm still fingering like an awkward middle schooler, but like him, I'm still having fun. I can play a few simple songs pretty well, and can see myself improving every day. I'll sometimes revisit a song I was having trouble with when I started and go "How did I ever think this is hard?" I went from kind of awkwardly strumming the strings with my fingers on random places on the neck to playing little riffs without even breaking eye contact with people - which make my friends jealous every time we go to Guitar Center. I just keep getting better and better and love playing more and more every day.
For the first time in my life, I'm actually improving on something, and it feels wonderful.
