Our first hint came on Thursday afternoon, check it!
A San Francisco based jazz label? You mean like Fantasy Records? Any band names stand out on that Wikipedia page, maybe a little band called Creedence Clearwater Revival! Our Google Tactics of typing in crude tablature revealed the song to be none other than Born on the Bayou.
Next up was one of the most difficult puzzles to solve since The Police back in April.
Talk about a generic bass line… Guesses ranged from Hotel California to American Pie until Rocksmith revealed a second hint to help us solve this difficult puzzle.
After that we narrowed it down to a few choices:
- Hotel California – The Eagles
Bass came in way too soon and doesn’t have any bass breaks near the end.
- American Pie – Don McClean
Has a bass break, but there’s only one, and it’s far longer than those pictured.
- Bat Out of Hell – Meatloaf
Song is too long and varied for the sections pictured to make sense
- In a Gadda Da Vida – Iron Butterfly
There is the drum break, four iterations of the riff, a keyboard break, and then a few final notes.
So even though we aren’t completely sure that it’s Iron Butterfly’s “Inna Gadda Da Vida,” we think it’s a safe enough bet to lock it in for next week.
There’s still one more song to be revealed however so be sure to come back on Monday when we find out the third song for Rocksmith’s 8/21 DLC release!
