DLC Round-Up: November 2015

rsrunov2015

 

Hello, Rocksmith fans!

Hope you are enjoying the insane shopping! As we end this month let’s back at the DLC that Rocksmith hath given.

First, here are the results of last month’s DLC poll:

Looks like unsurprisingly The Blues dominated followed by the Spooky singles which narrowly beat the return of KISS. Last but not least is All Time Low, which personally I think more people should give a chance, but that’s just me…

“maybe it’s not my weekend but it’s gonn-“ sorry, still stuck in my head!

November was the second coming of many packs, first we had yet another Hit Singles Pack featuring artists such as David Bowie, Foghat, Def Leppard, and Wolfmother! The next week we had the amazing bass talents of Matt Freeman bestowed upon the Rocksmith community courtesy of @Rancid, the awaited return of #Bachsmith, and finally a second pack from @TheBlackKeys!

November was a month that had a lot of great Bass charts, it’s going to be hard to cover them all with artists like Rancid, David Bowie, and Foghat in the mix, but here’s a few.

There’s no way you skipped this one right? I mean you own a bass…

Spend $9.99 if you want 4 awesome Bass tracks, but $2.99 works for Maxwell Murder

David Bowie songs always have great bass

You wanted a challenge right?

This is a really cool bass line from Bachsmith II that you should definitely check out

Outside of Bachsmith guitar wasn’t too challenging this month, and even so it was way more accessible than the first pack. Despite that there was still some tasty licks to be learned from The Black Keys, some much needed Ska flavoured guitar from Rancid, and a great slide guitar focused track courtesy of Foghat.

Some great guitar parts in this one

Take it EZ

pick it up!

so crunchy

.. If Mr. Bungle covered Classical Music

You probably can’t even watch this video but it’s a catchy riff

November was all about E Standard. Probably the most tuning friendly month ever with only two deviations (or three if you count Capo Required).

Arrangement E Standard Open E Drop D Capo Required
Lead 14 1 1 1
Rhythm 15 X 1 1
Bass 18 X X X
Alt. Lead 1 X X X

This all brings us to the usual question.

See you next month!

Sweet, my Ziggy Stardust video made it up there! Thanks for the added visibility! 😀

Great site, by the way! I’ve been a lurker here so far, but you were one of my inspirations for doing videos of my own in the first place, so thank you!

To actually answer the question, I’m a big fan of mixed packs in general. I love the variety! But I really liked the Black Keys II pack, so I voted for that one.

I would love some Pixies, Marilyn Manson, NIN, Korn if possible. Another Doors pack would be sweet.

Would have voted the Hit singles mainly for Def Leppard if it wasn’t for Bachsmith. Every pack had something I liked. Good month, Bravo Rocksmith team

Love the video of the eleven year old rocking the bass on maxwell murder. Was a decent month bass-wise for dlc. I have to say that I preferred the first bachsmith to this one and that I won’t be sad if we don’t get any more black keys songs for awhile (or ever). More classic rock/prog or funk/soul please rocksmith.

I thought this was a great month for DLC, but then, I don’t whine and cry when I don’t get what I want.

I would have given it to The Black Keys if we had anything from Turn Blue or some of the more fun tracks from when they started recording with bass (Nova Baby, Sinister Kid).

It is still a good pack, and I’m glad we got the acoustic to electric Little Black Submarines (great to see live), but without stronger songs I have to give the edge to Bachsmith 2.

Van Halen just had a dlc pack on rockband, I’m sure they have a bigger budget for dlc than rocksmith but it is possible.

I was replying to YYZ.. I hate when the comments screw up.

Imo this month goes like this
#1 The Black Keys ll (3 great songs I knew and liked and the 2 older songs that are already favorites of mine now, Def need to pick up the older albums)
#2 Bach smith ll (so much to learn from this pack, best deal of the month in terms of what you get for $6!)
#3 Hits singles ll (I passed on it, but slow ride looks awesome)
#4 Rancid ( I passed on it, decent songs but just not what I really wanted for a punk or ska band)

‘s OK. Nice List, Only i would move Rancid to no.3. But overall pretty spot on.

Gold on the ceiling is a pretty good one to play.. next girl and mind eraser are both good for real beginners to get a bit of a groove going too. But I agree this pack really is excellent, just wish weight of love or gotta get away would’ve made it..

Cmon Ubisoft give us a Kings of Leon pack…. Great guitar riffs and solos in just about every song…. And there is a lot of bass guitar also ???

Wishing for only one band really sets one up for a weekly disappointment.

I feel The Black Keys were the better one this month and the only one that needed a repeat pack. Hit Singles II felt like they were cashing in the previous hit singles pack. And Bachsmith felt soulless for some weird reason. The reason i think this is because Black Keys were poorly represented, IMO. I mean, there’s I Got Mine, Tighten Up and Just Got To Be and that’s… really it, actually. With this one they got a beter representation of their career with older songs (Thickfreakness and Your Touch) and their newer songs (Lonely Boy, Howlin’ For You and Little Black Submarines). Oh and Rancid is OK. Nice bass by the way.
