DLC Round-Up: August 2018

Hello Rocksmth fans!

Welcome to the August DLC Round-Up!

Before we get to August, let’s take a look at who you voted for as Best DLC of July 2018!

Variety leads the charge again followed by the nostalgic fourth trip back to the 1970s! Run-DMC seemed to not be that tricky for some of you, and a bunch of you decided the discounted Ubisoft game music was far more appealing than the legendary folk artist Joni Mitchell.


August delivered a wide array of content!

We started off with a new take on a classic rock sound care of @GretaVanFleet, next up we got a second dose of the blues with artists such as Johnny Lee Hooker, Willie Dixon, and Wes Montgomery. Post-hardcore returned to Rocksmith with Canadian’s @Silverstein, and finally we got our seventeenth Variety Pack featuring returning artists @DavidBowieReal, @GratefulDead, with newcomers @LisaLoeb and @alienantfarmAAF!


Let’s see the tunes bassists had to conquer this month!

Kevin makes this look easy…

A blues bass line that just doesn’t quit!

This certainly goes places…

This pack is overall pretty average on bass but this line is still fun to play

It’s Phil Lesh, you thought it wasn’t going to be awesome?

Are you surprised?


There was fun to be had by Guitarists as well, let’s check out some of the songs!

Personally this is my favourite of the pack

I’m just going to assume you already knew this was a must own DLC

Yeah…. Good luck with this one

Essential licks in this one

Tappa Tappa

High Energy ✅

Drop D ✅

Fun Riffs ✅

these tunes are so crunchy man

The only capo song of the month!

Good octave and fret hand mute practice


A rare month with only one Open Tuning, Two capo arrangements, and a few Drop D songs!

Arrangement E Standard Drop D Open D Capo
Lead 11 2 X 1
Rhythm 10 2 X 1
Bass 12 2 X X
Alt. Lead X X X X
Alt. Rhythm 2 X 1 X

E Standard rules!

Which brings us to the question on everyone’s mind…

See you soon!

Whoa, glad to see Run DMC made a good showing last month.

Hope the Blues pack can at least get 2nd this month. Since GVF seems to be filling that Zeppelin void, there may not be much to stop that train this year.

I voted for the blues pack. No choice there, but GVF was certainly my second choice.

Love to see more blues in the game, but it’s hard to vote for anything but GVF.

I voted for Greta Van Fleet, but overall it was a pretty strong month. Blues II and Silverstein were interesting packs for me as well. I’ll probably pick up some of the Variety pack songs at some point too.

Definitely! GVF is probably gonna go deep in The Riff Repeater Playoffs this year.

GVF! I thought this was the best month so far out of a horrible DLC year and I had hoped that things were turning around. At least we were treated to a little rock-n-roll for some variety before the year is over.
