Instead we will be posting the videos via Facebook and will make sure you folks are able to watch them easily via this article.

Are you ready for the experience? Will Jimi Hendrix be your vote for best DLC of December (or maybe even 2014). Let us know in the comments below.

Can anyone tell me how this works for next gen? I bought the pack this week but decided to get an X-Box One for Christmas. So, if I buy Rocksmith now, I have the pack twice.

Is it a code that I can sell? Maybe even to PlayStation 4-Users?

Today, Hendrix finally hit the Xbox One and, for the first time since I last caught caught myself in my zipper, I openly wept. Stevie Ray Vaughan’s rendition of “Little Wing” is the reason I picked up a guitar.To me, it is one of the finest instrumentals ever recorded, simple, elegant and full of passion. Imagine the joy I felt knowing that I was about to play a version of this wonderful piece of music. I did not weep as I played, I did not weep because my hands would not obey me. I wept when barely two minutes into the track, the credits rolled. The track didn’t end, it just faded out. I was so close… Please for the love of music, bring the Stevie Ray Vaughan version to Rocksmith. No one likes to see a grown man cry.

Couldn’t agree more. The SRV version is the best interpretation of that song hands down. I feel it’s even better than the original, but hey, that’s just me.

I really hope this opens the door for SRVs Little Wing.

That’s how it was recorded. I know, it’s very short… the live versions are better really. But it’s still awesome.

So went to bed last night at 11pm with no pack central time. I haven’t bothered checking yet today, but now that I am unavailable it’s most likely there now.

All singles comes to $36, all packs comes to $32, the 12-pack comes as $30, for all you penny-pinchers.

As for me? I’ll probably pick up a pack or two, as my Xbox Credit only has $20 in it as if now… I honestly can’t wait, I’m buying what I can NOW.

Got to agree with a few others. Would drop “If 6 was 9 ” and “Freedom” in favor of “Hey Joe” and “All Along the Watchtower”. Not sure how easy the legal issues would be for that Dylan song though.

Am I being greedy? I think it’s time for the children of Hendrix: Fruiscante (RHCP), Mayer, Garza (LLB), and the “It’s About Freakin Time HOF Inductee” SRV. Need to see their grandfathers as well, Buddy Guy, and some more Albert King.

Just got home and checked (almost 7pm now) and it’s not up. Way to go Ubi… I still have yet to even get the packs I bought on the 360 as well as the RS1 import. They’ve been dropping the ball for a while if you ask me.

Rippa Rita. I’m down for the lot. Keep ’em comin’ lads.

Next year; The other half of the top 40 and encore packs from your top sellers. (*ehem* and some more OZ artists wouldn’t hurt either…)

Don’t doubt that this is the best game ever. Those last holdouts should be clamouring to have their songs on here.

Eb437, Eb431 -- that’s pretty weird. I was not aware that he would tune like this. He musta tuned ’em by ear or they just adjusted the speed of the recording slightly when they were producing his albums. Anyway, cool thing to know.

Its seems fitting that Hendrix will have the most tracks on a guitar simulator closely followed by the legend of Pat Smear of Foo Fighters

Actually Tom Morello’s tied with Hendrix. 7 RATM + 5 Audioslave = 12.

good catch forgot about Tom Morello in audioslave. I sort of think of Morello as an innovator which Hendrix certainly was in many ways. Now we need to get a few classic guitarists like Clapton,Page,Gilmore oh wait never mind that’s not happening

Actually Dave Grohl wins : 11 Foo Fighters + 1 Them Crooked Vulvures + 1 Queens of the Stone Age + 3 Nirvana = 16!

I think a pack like this is huge and critical to the success of the game. I want several songs but the others, not sure. I’ll end up buying the entire lot, no doubt. I would’ve appreciated the ability to watch the play videos on YouTube--I don’t use facespace or whatever.

So the Hendrix DLC isn’t available on PS4 until the 17th? Not the 16th as advertised? How frustrating.

Don’t know if I will buy this DLC…I’m not at all a fan of Jimi Hendrix (I pretty much dislike him). And if I can’t upload videos on Youtube, it’ll be useless.
