Speculation: 38 Special Holds on Loosely to Rocksmith (maybe)


Greetings, Rocksmith fans! 

@DanAmrich doesn’t plan on confirming his clue tonight, but we have a real good idea as to what it most likely is:

A pretty simplistic guitar chart, right? @SquirrellyNinja also posted the gear used to make the tones:

SH-elx caught on almost instantly:

SH_elx hold on loosely

Looks like a sure bet; founded by Don Barnes and Donnie Van Zant (brother of Southern Rock legend Ronnie Van Zant) in 1974, 38 Special’s unique blend of Southern Rock, Arena Rock-style AOR, and New Wave resulted in some of the most hummable southern rock still in popular rotation on classic rock radio to this very day. Since it’s a three pack, what could the other songs be? We have a few ideas:

Possibility #1: 38 Special Pack:

Caught Up In You

Like we wouldn’t have this song in a 38 Special pack? Pretty much this and Hold On Loosely are the two 38′ songs played most on classic rock radio nowadays.

Like No Other Night

Not quite as popular as CUIY or HOL, but it’s just so damn catchy!

Possibility #2: Southern Rock Hits Pack

Molly Hatchet: Flirtin’ With Disaster

With the export working from Rock Band 1 now, why not?

The Outlaws: Green Grass and High Tides

Another Rock Band favorite: this ten-minute long jam will give any guitarist a nice challenge.

Gregg Allman: I’m No Angel

Probably the closest thing we can get to Bruce Springsteen for the near foreseeable future.

Possibility #3: 80’s Hits 5

This one could be almost anything from the 80s, so feel free to think of your own suggestions. Here are some possibilities:

Boston: Can’tcha Say (You Believe In Me) / Still In Love

A major hit for Boston in the 80s alongside Amanda, this would certainly fit with 38 Special’s Arena-style sound.

Whitesnake: Here I Go Again

The Whitesnake song everyone’s been waiting for to arrive on Rocksmith after Is This Love.

So, Rocksmith fans, what are you hoping will be in the pack? Did we even get the artist or song correct in the first place? Is this all blind speculation on our part? Let us know in the comments, and we’ll see you on Monday!
