Rocksmith 2014 DLC 6/24 – Surf Rock

Surfs up Rocksmith fans! Hope you are enjoying the Steam Summer Sale! I was unfortunately unable to update the article with the latest deals, but thankfully @DanAmrich and @UbisoftStudioSF were on the ball to make up for my indisposed status.

I had requested Sublime for my birthday week of DLC and Ubisoft gave me a Surf Rock Pack instead! I’m totally ok with this!

This is an interesting week because although the artists in this pack such as: The Ventures, Dick Dale, and The Surfaris aren’t on the same label, they still agreed to play nice together in a discounted pack!

Awesome!

Surf Rock Song Pack – $7.99 / Steam

Is this the type of variety you love to get? Do you love the fact you won’t have to tune down (or up) to rock out these Surf Rock classics? Let us know!

This pack is perfect for my trip to the beach next week. Still want that Sublime pack. They should just release the whole 40 oz to Freedom album!!

Too bad it's not the same partition of Misirlou than in Guitar Hero 2… 🙁

This good stuff to learn just to be a well rounded guitar player but i cant say im excited by it. Considering how much ive already dropped on DLC songs, im more selective these days and this doesnt make the cut.

There's one con to this pack: each song is short.

Don’t think Elliot will have to do a Month end survey for most downloaded. This pack just may win. Haven’t seen anything negative in comments.

I’m glad Rocksmith went for the higher wave and didn’t persue Beach Boys. Hang ten on them bodacious waves. Not a surfer <—

Hmmm…. Misirlou has no rhythm part, but Wipeout does? That doesn’t sound right.

Anyway -- I’m plenty pleased. Good classic stuff, not hard. And I’m not a big fan of variant tuning, though drop-D isn’t bad. And as I’m still learning and not up to mastering many of the harder songs, I’m happy to have some moderately easier ones so I can collect more platinum picks! 🙂

Awesome pack!
Would have loved to seen a Ziggens track (61.9) snuck in. Still buying.

Maybe next week we’ll get that Chili Peppers pack.

While it is “Rocksmith”, I wouldn’t mind seeing a little more variation too. A little jazz would be nice. More blues, too. Don’t have much of a stomach for country, but I can understand if others would enjoy it.

What? No Surf Punks? Just kidding; this looks like a fun group of songs, the first pack I will have purchased in entirety for quite some time.

Pretty cool. I’ve never played any surf rock on guitar before, so this will be interesting. Any good guitar player should learn many different styles.

Awesome. Honestly the only I’m interested in this week is “Misirlou”. Partially due to GH2 nostalgia, but also because it has one of my all-time favorite guitar tones.

4 out of the 5 songs in the final gig of Guitar Hero II are now in Rocksmith, only Institutionalized by Suicidal Tendencies is absent.
