Hello, Rocksmith fans, and welcome to the August edition of the DLC Round-Up! Each month we will take a look back at all the DLC we have received and poll you, our wonderful readers as to what DLC stole your heart!
First let’s look at the results of last month’s:
Out of 523 Votes total:
- Yacht Rock received 43% of the votes – 227 Votes!
- WOW this is a close one… Billy Talent the band that nobody outside of Canada even knew about, has managed to beat Lamb of God by a single vote! 89 to 88! 17% of the vote!
- Second last we have Deftones with 13% of the vote – 67 Votes
- Finally the super polarizing yet incredibly fun on Lead and Rhythm, The Libertines with 10% of the vote – 52 Votes
August was an interesting month, it all started off with Biffy Clyro, a band that while successful enough to open for huge acts was met with puzzled and bewildered reactions from a majority of the Rocksmith community, those who did listen found a new band to listen to or possibly a new DLC purchase. Next things got a bit more familiar with the addition of the 90s pop-punkish darlings, No Doubt a good time for guitarist and bassist alike. The bassists delight continued with a 3 pack from Duran Duran, and finally the most excellent original compositions from UbisoftSF in the form of Bachsmith.
This was a month for the bassists (I mean it had No Doubt and Duran Duran, come on). Songs like Spiderwebs (No Doubt), Rio (Duran Duran), Don’t Speak (No Doubt), Rondo Alla Turca (Mozart), Little Fugue in G Minor (Bach), and many others.
While Biffy Clyro definitely delivered some interesting chord shapes and time signatures there is no way the guitar song of the month can go to anything but Rondo Alla Turca featuring a truly awesome guitar solo from @MMontgomery18
A truly beautiful guitar arrangement that isn’t too challenging would have to be Duran Duran’s Ordinary World
For something a bit more riffy, you might be interested in Biffy Clyro’s Bubbles, which features a guitar part from Josh Homme!
For those that like things a bit heavier you will really love the 80s cheesy metal vibe of The Ride Of The Valkyries
Outside of Biffy Clyro we didn’t dip too far below E Standard this month, check it out:
|Arrangement||Standard||Drop D||Eb Standard||Eb Drop Db||Drop C|
Been awhile since we had an alternate bass arrangement!
Which brings us to the question on everyone’s mind:
See you next month!
