Hello Rocksmith fans!
Rocksmith wants your feedback on the future of their DLC content, not as in what bands/artists you want. For that, we use THE REQUEST APP!
What follows is a post from Community Manager, @UbiParadise:
We’d like your help! Can you answer three quick questions for us? We have a quick survey that will help us with our DLC moving forward.
We appreciate your feedback! Thank you!

1. There are some highly requested songs which are currently unable to function in Rocksmith 2014 due to their tunings. Would you be interested in buying DLC with adjusted tunings even if it isn’t exactly the same as the original song?
For the record, we’re not talking about pitch-shifting entire songs — like, if a song is in C, we are not talking about shifting it up to E Standard. The original recording will still be the original recording and, outside of a small window of correction (say, A445 down to A440, which we usually can do now but did not always have the permission to do in the past), we are not looking to shift things wholesale. Seems to be some questions about that, here and elsewhere.
This is about changing the tuning of your guitar, not the tuning of the recording. These would be arrangements that would not be what you (or we) are seeing the artists play, but in a tuning that would work better for the game’s note detection. That’s definitely not a small change, so that’s why we wanted to ask how people felt about it. We know that some people really value insight into exactly where the artists are putting their fingers on the fretboard, and some people just want to learn how to play their favorite songs, regardless of other factors. Nothing is decided and there is no wrong answer to the poll — but it’s worth clarifying what we were trying to ask.
There you have it, please take the time to fill out the quick survey if you haven’t already 🙂
