Song Speculation: The Monkees grab the last train to Rocksmith

Hello Rocksmith fans!

This week gives us a music game first!

Before we get to the speculation, let’s check out RollingStone222’s clue.

No hidden picture this time

Onto something here!

Could it be?

 

It is!

Well, this doesn’t sound easy…


Congratulations are in order as this is the first time a music game has received a non-cover version of a song from @TheMonkees.


It may surprise you to know just how many huge hits The Monkees had, and narrowing even our speculation down to just three proved to be frankly an impossible task. So with that said, here’s just a few of the songs we’d love to see round out the rest of the pack!

What follows is speculation

 

Last Train to Clarksville

 

Just because it’s a pop-rock song doesn’t mean there’s not a lot of intricate guitar work going on here. This song is a classic, and will also be sure to give you a great crash course in arpeggios!

Daydream Believer

 

Downright iconic, and with a nice acoustic part going on it’d be a surefire lock for our next list of great campfire songs!

 

(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone

 

One of the more harder rocking songs in the Monkees catalogue, there’s a fantastic driven guitar part going on throughout this track that’s sure to be a blast to play and provide us with a nice little tone!

 

(Theme from) The Monkees

 

Just listen to that solo! Besides, Rocksmith needs more TV themes in the game.


Are you excited for the Rocksmith debut of The Monkees or are you just not a believer in this pack? What songs do you hope to see? Let us know in the comments!
