Hello, Rocksmith fans!
With Thanksgiving and Black Friday past us, the Holiday season rolls in and November comes to a close. This can mean only one thing for us; it’s time for another edition of the monthly DLC Round-Up!
Before we get to November’s DLC, let’s have a look at how you all voted last month:
Progressive rock prevails for the third month in a row: Rush in August, Dream Theater in September, and now Yes, with the Anniversary Song Pack trailing in second place with just under half the votes.
November was quite the interesting month; in addition to containing five weeks of DLC, we saw the return of quite a few artists that haven’t seen Rocksmith in a while, especially Stevie Ray Vaughan. We received three different variety artist packs, one of which celebrated the 30th anniversary of the founding of Ubisoft, and we closed out the month with the Alternative hits of Third Eye Blind.
Bass guitarists might not have had quite as strong of a month as we have previously, but we still received a decent amount of low-octave thumping to keep us busy. Let’s have a look at what we had:
Loads of rapid movement and chromatic walks: Tommy Shannon was no slouch on bass.
Couldn’t Stand The Weather
Starts to get really tricky around 1 minute, 40 seconds in
Search and Destroy
Quite a bit of movement for staying in relatively one position
Lots of rapid frethand muting
Some interesting movement and octaves used here, plus the muting in the bridge
a test of endurance awaits you in the Danger Zone
Guitarists probably had the most fun this month for rather obvious Texas-related reasons; the variety on offer was also nice, though.
Where u at, halsb?
Pride and Joy
Her parents are certainly proud
Shut Up and Dance
Sick of this song from the radio yet? It’s just plain fun to play.
Lots of little solos scattered throughout this one
Search and Destroy
A nice proto-punk challenge. Just don’t get it confused with Metallica, alright?
Eyes of a Panther
An ironic killer hair metal riff…
Talk Dirty To Me
…and an iconic killer hair metal riff
While E standard continues to dominate, this month saw quite a bit in the way of Eb Standard thanks to that aforementioned Texan. We did, however, see a smaller variety in the types of tunings on offer, which will likely please those who hate tuning too far past Eb.
|Arrangement||E Standard||Eb Standard||Drop D||Eb Drop Db|
Which brings one question to everyone’s minds:
- Variety Pack V
- UBI30: 1986 Song Pack
- Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble
- 2010’s Mix II Pack
- Third Eye Blind
See you next time!
