Hello Rocksmith fans!
June’s DLC has ended and with it comes the DLC Round-Up! Let’s take a look at some of the Guitar and Bass highlights for June, shall we?
But first, here are the results from May’s DLC Poll:
It’s really no surprise that The Blues absolutely dominated May, Slayer fans could not even compete against the power of the blues once five vintage blues tracks hit Rocksmith 2014.
June was quite the month, one of the few to feature two variety packs (not singles). In addition to this we saw the highly requested Queens of The Stone Age receive a 5 pack and the incredibly challenging Primus get their Rocksmith debut which included the theme from South Park. On the variety side we got a nice dose of Rockabilly (which included a song from Queen) the Players Picks pack which gave us four more tracks from the 70s-80’s to add to our library, and to cap off June the arrival of Classic Country music sorely lacking in the Rocksmith library.
June was a great month for Bassists, I mean come on we got PRIMUS, but besides that Queens of The Stone Age definitely delivered for bass on songs like I Appear Missing, and Little Sister. Rockabilly delivered in a big way with the upright thumpin’ of Brian Setzer’s Rock This Town and Queen’s Crazy Little Thing Called Love. Player Picks gave us a most excellent instrumental bass odyssey care of Edgar Winter Groups Frankenstein, Roger Miller’s King Of The Road gave us a fantastic walking bass line, and of course Primus was… Primus.
Bassists, you want this song, trust us.
Walk that bass!
Drums and Organ not included
Does your thumb hurt just watching this?
That’s not to say that Guitarists were left out in June. There’s a lot to go through from Larry LaLonde’s unorthodox leads in Primus to Josh Homme’s soulful yet approachable soloing in Make It Wit Chu, The highly underrated guitar wizardry of Brian Setzer in Rock This Town, The incredible guitar driven Modern Day Cowboy, and my personal favourite Hank Williams So Lonesome I Could Cry.
Did you know Primus also has a guitarist? 😉
plus it’s a re-record!
wow, such trills
This was a great month if you hated tuning your guitar, almost every single week was full of E Standard goodness! Check it out
