Hello, Rocksmith fans!
Autumn creeps in once again, bringing a full end to yet another month of Rocksmith DLC. Let’s have a look at what the month had to offer, shall we?
First, here are the results of last month’s DLC poll:
*(secretly hopes no one notices that I voted twice)*
Bit of a low voter turnout this time, more than 1/4 fewer people voted for August than July’s 417. Nice to see that people loved Fleetwood Mac and Kansas as much as I did, though.
September has been an interesting month for DLC, since this might just be the first month in a long time entirely composed of single-artist three-packs (no mixed singles or 4 to 5-packs this time, unfortunately). Bass guitarists especially should have fun with this month’s DLC: With the challenging, active basslines of Earth, Wind & Fire, the surprisingly varied psychedelic rhythms of The Doors, and the challenging charts of Polyamorous‘ slap bass and So Cold by Breaking Benjamin, lower-octave enthusiasts had quite a bit to keep them busy.
If you own a bass, and you didn’t pick up the @EWF pack: why?
The Doors may not have an official bassist, but this and L.A. Woman‘s bass charts are pretty darn fun and varied.
A nice, active bassline with a really challenging main riff.
Slappa dat bass!
Of course, if you’re more a beginner on bass, @therejects have you covered with their varied, yet moderately easy charts.
Guitarists had some nicely varied material to play as well, with shred-tastic solos on the likes of EWF’s Shining Star, the Doors’ L.A. Woman, and Breaking Benjamin’s So Cold, the challenging riffs on Brand New’s Sic Transit Gloria… Glory Fades and Earth, Wind & Fire’s Sing a Song, and the moderate beginner-friendly charts on The All-American Rejects, EWF’s September, and Brand New’s Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don’t.
“Funk is only challenging on bass” my ass, have you even looked at this solo yet?
Robby Krieger sure knows how to make an interesting 8-minute shred.
That muted guitar riff should take quite some time to master.
Not a bad chart at all if you prefer chordier pop.
A nice change-up from standard power chords.
Although E Standard continues to dominate, we did see some nice variety with the presence of other tunings this month:
|Arrangement||E Standard||Eb Standard||Eb Drop Db||D Drop C||Capo Required||True-Tuned|
This all brings one question to mind:
Have fun, and start voting!
