in general it's a pretty fair article, though not mentioning the chord numbering option makes RB3's notation system sound vastly inferior to it's actual capabilities (not that HMX helped themselves out much by hiding it in the menus, not making it the default, and not allowing you to save that setting). with chord numbering turned on, RB3 notation is far less confusing. there's a definite trend that experienced guitarists prefer RB3's more tab-like notation, and new players seem to prefer RS notation. hopefully when BandFuse comes out the game will be good enough and it will finally combine the best of both worlds, the tab-style notation with the ability to use any guitar.
He shows pictures of the chord numbers, though, so I guess he found it eventually.

I prefer tab over Rocksmith's representation, but I like the wave shapes because it's fewer numbers to look at. This probably allows one half of the brain to interpret the tab numbers while the other half interprets the shapes, or something like that.
the shapes are ok when you're only dealing with a few familiar chord forms. but once you start introducing more exotic chords, they become confusing and difficult to decipher.
