Hello Rocksmith fans!
Wow, welcome to a very metal DLC-Round Up! Outside of Devo, I think many would agree this was quite the month for fans of metal or hard rock.
Before we get to April, let’s see how you voted for March, 2016.
The winner by a long shot was Collective Soul, followed by some rock appreciation for the ladies, despite the tepid response Rocksmith Goes To The Movies still impressed 75 of you, and Hit Singles V beat out Imagine Dragons as expected.
As mentioned before this month was very metal. It went from the debut of Black Label Society to a second helping of Disturbed, then we got a three pack of songs from the 80’s featuring Devo, Judas Priest, and Extreme, and finally a total surprise with groove/hard rock metal-ish band Crobot!
Despite the metal slant of this month bassists still had some material to work through. Let’s check out a few picks.
Not only is this a really fun bassline but there’s a great bass solo at 4:33 that just sounds really cool in general
Worth it for the section at 2:30 alone. The bass in this pack overall is a huge step above the first DLC pack
Be the anchor in the storm that is Nuno Bettencourt’s guitar gymnastics.
Approachable but fun
You know with metal music you are going to get some challenging and riffs and solos, well this week definitely delivered a couple of those. Let’s take a look at a sampling.
Well, this solo ain’t easy…
@Audrey123talks can sweep pick now… How about you?
Overall it’s just a blast to play.
Still waiting for the halsb FC…
Ok, it doesn’t have Hellion but it’s still a Judas Priest song, and it’s bad ass.
April being a month of Metal definitely had it’s fair share of Drop Tunings. Let’s check it out.
|Arrangement||E Standard||Eb Standard||Eb Drop Db||D Standard||Drop C|
Finally, a month where E Standard is in the minority, might as well be this one!
Which brings us to the question on everyone’s mind…
See you next month!
