Rocksmith 2014 DLC 7/22 – Yacht Rock Singles

Oh hi, Hollywood Steve here, with a 5 ultra smooth songs for Rocksmith 2014.

This week is all about Yacht Rock, and if you are wondering what Yacht Rock is you need to watch this (slightly NSFW [language]) web series.

Today’s five singles come from artists such as Hall & Oates, The Doobie Brothers, Michael McDonald, Rupert Holmes, and Toto!

If you aren’t familiar with Michael McDonald’s I Keep Forgettin’, this classic hip hop song might jog your memory.

All the songs are in E Standard and Kiss On My List is a fun piano transcription outside of the awesome guitar solo.

Yacht Rock Song Pack – $11.99 / Steam

 

From Deftones to smooth sailing, where will Rocksmith take us next week? Check back this Friday to find out!

Correction: It is on the store, but you have to go directly to the store. For some reason the songs aren't showing up in the game's UI for the store. Makes me wonder what other songs I might be missing out on.

Arrrrgh! I was out of town when this came out. So stoked to get back to my guitar and groove out on these cheesy tunes. Not one of them is in the Playstation Store. What gives?

Interestingly enough on Steam, there is a Rhythm Chart for I Keep Forgettin’. I can’t tell if there is a difference between the two charts tho.

DLCs like this make me wonder why won’t Rocksmith include keys to their playable instruments? There are tons of cheap 61-key midi boards out there. Plus they could actually expand the play-interface by allowing to chose between classic Rocksmith simple color-coded “your finger goes here” interface, tabs, and classical sheet music notation. They can even keep they color coding scheme for each one.

I think its becoming clear ubisoft will not invest in developing this game to become a full band experience and just keep pushing dlc until sales are slow and then it will join bandfuse

This was some great DLC. I played “Hold the Line” on bass 3 or 4 times in a row. Those slides can sure put on the blisters quickly.

Hi. There's been a response, from Paul, on Twitter, regarding Arctic Monkeys, in the past.

The fact of the matter is, that Arctic Monkeys aren't fond of releasing their music digitally, but I believe Paul said, that they'll keep trying. Elliott probably has a link to the twitter post.

I got them when I got home from work this evening. Gotta be honest, so far my favorite to play is I Keep Forgetting. Good choices this week.

Looks like the Steam content monkey (intern/work experience kid) flubbed the release. Only four songs on Steam/Ubi and two of those are missing prices so you can’t purchase them.

No ‘Hold the Line’ for now… 🙁

Awesome pack!
Anybody know why PSN puts the singles up for sale but takes them a couple days to purchase as a pack?

Funny how the comments changed from ‘this dlc sucks’ to ‘where the hell is it I want to play it!’

Ahhhh…yacht rock. My guilty pleasure. These should be fun. Too bad the kings of yacht rock, Little River Band, didn't make the list.

I know it’s not smooth, but I was genuinely hoping for some Jethro Tull. 🙁

Paul, that was the whole reason for me to get the PC version…..also got a new PC too….but sine I now have two copies of 2014, I WISH there was a work around for the steam thing!

Elison already have the new dlc? But this man is lucky 👿

Kelley Ellison

Ditto. For what it's worth.. I HATE STEAM period. THe fact I can get all the songs on Xbox, but I must buy the FIRST Rocksmith to get them on the PC only furthers my dislike of Steam. I can't find the new songs yet either….and this is the first pack I have been excited for in weeks!!! Hopefully ALOT more Hall and Oates!

PC…or Steam. I checked there in the "Store" but couldn't find these songs.

I really enjoy playing Hold the Line on bass, even before it arrived on Rocksmith (which is a feverdream come true, to be honest)

But it depends on how hard you want it, I thought it was good ol’ fun, but it ain’t that challenging.

I have some questions to Tina. How old are you and why don't you like anything older than the 1990s? I doubt you'll have the guts to reply.
