DLC Round-Up: June 2016

rsrujune2016

Hello Rocksmith fans!

Welcome to another fun edition of Rocksmith DLC Round-Up!

Before we get to June, let’s take a look at the results for May.

Great voter turnout for May!

@ChevelleInc took the gold, demolishing all opposing releases, drop tuning also. Who would have thought? @RiseAgainst took second place with their second pack, followed by prog metal’s Queensrÿche beating out the 90s Mix Pack by a single vote, and finally the incredibly Variety filled Variety Pack I was able to secure 38 of your votes.


 

This month started off with some extremely radio friendly pop punk with @GoodCharlotte which also included a song featuring members from Avenged Sevenfold. Following that was our second taste of Variety with singles from Kenny Rogers, Eagle Eye Cherry, Queen and David Bowie, and SR-71! Next we had the return of @Incubus with a four pack and of course this week we got patriotic for July 4th with four songs with America in the title.


 

Was this month for bassists? I think a lot of people would agree there was some great material for our four string friends…

Nothing too tricky here, just a fun romp

Can’t resist a catchy pop punk bass line

Yo VIP let’s kick it.

If you are a bassist you should buy the Incubus II pack on principle alone

Use that intro to prepare yourself for the intense bass workout to come

Can you keep up with the Godfather of Soul? Good luck!

You know that Boston isn’t going to be easy on Bass by now… Check out the outro to this anthem!


 

Here’s some choice tracks to get that six string going as well

A very restrained yet enjoyable lead part care of Good Charlotte and Synyster Gates.

Sounds simple but there’s a bit more to this song than you get on first listen. Also a fun solo!

Great tones, great feel, great song.

How’s your fingerpicking? Take some advice from Kenny Rogers

You gotta learn this classic, also there’s a few licks in between the chord progression worth checking out.

Gotta give props to the new country pick, bust out that slide!

It’s going to take some technique to make that staccato sound pleasant… Also good luck keeping up with SRV’s solo.


 

June had it’s fair share of tunings, but nothing that low, don’t worry!

Arrangement E Standard Drop D Eb Standard Eb Drop Db Capo
Lead 10 X 5 1 1
Rhythm 10 X 4 2 1
Bass 10 1 5 1 X
Alt. Lead X X X X 1

 

Another E Standard win!


 

Which brings us to the question on everyone’s mind

See you next month!
