Hello, Rocksmith fans, and welcome to the September 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 gave you the most bang for your buck!
First let’s look at the results of last month’s:
Out of 407 Votes total:
- It will come as no surprise that Bachsmith took the lead with a commanding 67% of the poll – 273 Votes!
- In a respectful second place, Duran Duran with 12% of the poll – 50 Votes
- Followed by everyone’s guilty pop-punkish pleasure, No Doubt with 11% of the poll – 44 Votes
- Finally the Scottish rockers with the math rock flavour, Biffy Clyro with 10% of the poll – 40 Votes
No surprises there.
September was a huge month! (although Sony EU friends haven’t experienced three weeks of it) We kicked it off with a band very near and dear to me, Sublime, then we went way back to the 1970s to hang out with Deep Purple, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and waved at a distance to Ted Nugent. We hated on Creed while secretly rocking out to Higher when no one was looking, gave Shinedown a Second Chance, and wrapped it all up with five songs from Foreigner!
This was definitely a balanced month for both guitarists and bassists. Great basslines like Santeria (Sublime), Highway Star (Deep Purple), My Own Prison (Creed), Sound of Madness (Shinedown), and Double Vision (Foreigner).
There was a lot of great guitar work this month, so it’s hard to choose one single song. I think I have to go with Ritchie Blackmore’s iconic solo in Highway Star above the other candidates.
If you want something more current (and don’t mind drop tuning) check out the solo in Shinedown’s Bully.
Maybe it’s just the nostalgia talking, but I had a lot of fun playing Creed’s Higher.
Hey look it’s @Audrey123Talks playing Foreigner’s Hot Blooded better than most of us…
You didn’t think I was going to leave out this song did you? Some fun licks in this one for intermediate guitarists.
This month had the tunings going all over the place!
|Arrangement||Standard||Drop D||Eb Standard||Eb Drop Db||Drop C||Custom Tuning|
|Rhythm||13 + Capo||5||1||1||1||X|
A Capo arrangement, alternate lead, and a custom tuning all in one month? Wow! E Standard continues to dominate though!
Which brings us to the inevitable question:
See you next month!
