    so I decided to learn guitar this year, i bought rocksmith and have been enjoying it. the last few days ive noticed it not reading some notes right and that it seems to be picking up something akin to static off the guitar even when the strings havent been touched. Is it possible the guitar or string quality is causing issues? the tuner checks out fine. I did buy one of the cheapest guitars I could find on amazon. So im wondering if I should return it and get something a little better quality. I've logged just over 10 hours so far and didn't start seeing the issue till about hour 8.

    @prestonneill1 have you played with the saddles to get it intonated?

    Pull up the mini-tuner.
    Tune guitar to EADGBE.
    Then play fret 12 one by one. Should register EADGBE perfectly in the circle too.

    Also, strings stretch and age. You generally have to do adjustments all of the time.

    @prestonneill1 Since RS does depend to some degree on the quality of the signal it receives, the cheap electronics (pickups, controls etc) in a real cheap guitar can have an effect on note recognition. Most instruments produce some "noise" ... how bad that noise is can effect how well RS works.

    But as pedietz suggests, carefully tune it and check the intonation (you might have to look up how to do that with your tuner). I've found RS to be pretty sensitive to intonation, cheap guitars are not usually known for their great intonation, and ANY new guitar will go through changes the first few weeks it gets tuned and played which will alter the intonation.

    The procedure pedietz outlines above will give you a general idea if the intonation is close ... when pressing the string at the 12th fret, do so LIGHTLY, just enough to keep it from buzzing. If your tuner is showing for instance E flat, or E sharp instead of a E ... then the intonation is off and you'll have to make adjustments to the saddles at the bridge.

    Static when not touching the guitar may just be that - particularly on guitars with single coil pickups, and is nothing to worry about. A common cause of notes not registering is pressing down on the strings too hard, making the notes go sharp. New players often press down too hard. The gut reaction when things don't work is to apply more pressure. Don't. You only need a light touch, and pressing down too hard can cause the note to go sharp.

    That's not to say that intonation may be off, but before you start mucking about with the saddles, just try loosening your grip.

    and its winter now so your furnace is going to dry out your room causing necks to change a tiny bit. Again more adjustments.

    @prestonneill1 - I bought a cheap guitar once and only later discovered the neck was warped when it would not maintain tune as I went down the neck. Easiest way to check is to take the guitar and look down the neck from the headstock and see if it is straight. You may or may not not have a rod in the neck to adjust the bend.

    Hello @castironeer welcome to the forum and thank you for providing this insight for checking for issues with guitars and warped components, as something players can also rule out when having sound issues and detection issues with the game.
