The second Rocksmith 2014 reveal has been posted on Facebook, and it’s one of the most influential rock songs of all time.
It was slightly hinted at yesterday when they posted the music video for R.E.M’s Losing My Religion as seen here:
Yeah, it’s not the Van Halen cover, you weren’t expecting that were you? Oh dear, well you better read this.
The influential distortion sound of the guitar track was created after guitarist Dave Davies sliced the speaker cone of his guitar amplifier with a razor blade and poked it with a pin. The amplifier was affectionately called “little green,” after the name of the amplifier made by the Elpico company, and purchased in Davies’ neighbourhood music shop, slaved into a Vox AC-30.
This is an amazing grab for Rocksmith 2014, can’t wait to see what other songs from the 60s or even 50s they can get!
