Why is it any different than if he said "I'm teaching my friend to play" and then filled the OP with statements of "he"? Maybe the TS didn't use "friend" because she is not and thus didn't know what...

You will have to do a lot of work outside of the game but that's to be expected. A lot of the people that criticize it seem to do it on the basis that it's no magic bullet and won't "teach" you...

Nobody "learns" through Rocksmith. That's a misnomer. It quite frankly doesn't teach besides general information about what certain techniques are.

I've considered buying learning DVDs for the structure I hope they'd offer. Justinguitar is really good but sometimes feels a little unstructured and that feeling becomes an obstacle.

B) Strength isn't solely produced by muscle. Some of it is neurological, whereby the muscles can learn to contract harder, producing more strength without additional muscle.

I use a tuner and go in order, low e to high. Those not tuning from E to E are tuning by ear? Or not necessarily.

I file the nails on my fretting hand as low as I can. Particularly on the index and middle fingers as the tips on those fingers seem to be shorter above the nail.

Is it common for someone to have a guitar teacher that they're committed to, and see them on an as needed basis? Or on longer intervals than weekly?

I'm not trying to be smart, but I'm not sure why people say this. I can think of plenty of good rock guitarists who admit their initial motivation was girls.
