This is exactly what I was hoping for when I bought Rocksmith:
My daughter picked up the pink Washburn Lyon tonight (I love that guitar - it's VERY light) and qualified both Satisfaction and Next Girl. Then she played her first event and scored something like 39,500 or so.
My son and I also messed around in multi-player mode on Smoke on the Water. I personally burned out on that song in about 1978, but he discovered it and loves it so I bought the DLC for him and we rocked out on it tonight. Nice to play more than the first 7 notes for a change!
My wife isn't a guitar player, but she's very supportive (and/or tolerant).
I was cleaning house again and noticed that I had scored enough points on Next Girl to reach MM, but somehow I hadn't gotten MM yet. (I think that's the song where I realized it matters what order to meet the criteria; you have to max out all the phrases FIRST and THEN get 100,000+.) So, I check out the phrase levels and found them all maxed. Odd. But, what the heck. I played it through and got the required minimum score (actually, 109,775) to Master Mode my 8th song. I'd still have a hard time playing most of them from memory, though.
Here are my current top ten hits:

This list pretty well represents what I've been working on lately. Just going through Riff Repeater and leveling up everything that's not at Max and then going back and trying for Master Mode. This has been my strategy since I first got scared that I'd run out of songs if I just kept blasting through Events. And, it's working. All but the last two of this list I've unlocked in Master Mode. But, I still can't play them well from memory - so that's my next push.
