DLC Round-Up: October 2018

Hello Rocksmth fans!

Welcome to the October DLC Round-Up!

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

The dream of the 90s is alive in Rocksmith as it lead this month, followed by Corey Taylor’s first band, Stone Sour! Many of you complained about Kelly Clarkson, but it looks like more of you picked it up than the 2010s Mix V Pack!

October had some boo-tiful content, right?

We started off the month with that band with the shirt that people wear, @JoyDivision! Next up was the 18th Variety Pack featuring artists that start with B, like @TheBeachBoys, @beastieboys, @blink182, and of course @OutlawsMusic with Green Grass & High Tides. Next up we got a dose of modern Country-shred with @BradPaisley and returned to the 80s with bands like @Poison, Georgia Satellites, and @aha_music! Finally for Halloween the long awaited @thebandGHOST made their Rocksmith debut with a 4 Pack!

Let’s see the tunes bassists had this month!

Bass Bass Bass to the radio

This song is ALL bass

So fuzzy

Bassists get hand pain in this song also!

Nothing too tricky here, just a swampy bass line

If you liked Gimme Three Steps, you may enjoy this one also!

@audrey123talks (Kate) is loving it!

Overall the Ghost pack is solid on bass, but stand outs are definitely Cirice and Ritual

Can’t let bassists have all the fun! What about Guitar?

Transmission is a great choice also, but there’s something very engaging about the chaotic guitar work of this song

Are you up to the challenge?

Simple yet effective, the chorus of this song has a real “wall of sound” you just have to experience yourself

cringe yourself past the lyrics to an incredibly fun and challenging guitar part


all of 80s Mix VI is fantastic but this is a must buy song, it’s great on all three arrangements!

We love alternate charting, ok?

A very surprisingly beautiful song (about Satan?). Harmonies, approachable, and sounds great!

What a MONSTER riff, check out the Alt. Lead to play the synth solo!

With bands like Ghost and Poison, there was sure to be some varied tunings! Let’s check it out…

Arrangement E Standard Eb Standard Drop D D Standard Capo
Lead 12 1 X 4 X
Rhythm 10 1 1 4 1
Bass 12 1 X 4 X
Alt. Lead 3 X X 2 X
Alt. Rhythm 1 X X X X

Another victory for E Standard!

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

See you next time!

Wow, even though the pack didn’t do him justice, I’m both surprised/and happy that someone else voted for Brad. The pack is guaranteed last place this month, but at least a few folks were brave enough to cast some votes that way.

No goose-egg Woo Hoo!!!!

One of the hardest calls in a long time but I had to give JD the slight edge over Ghost.

Aaaaarg! Stupid page. The poll looked like it had loaded so went to click on joy division and the thing moved and said I clicked on the variety pack. NO i did not. Plus you can’t move your vote if a mistake is made. Not happy about that. Is there anyway that can be fixed? I would not vote for that pack. Plus I want joy division to beat ghost. Really wanted stone sour to win the last one too.
