Greeting Rocksmith fans!
This week’s DLC is a legendary artist making his rhythm game debut. Three tracks from the late Jeff Buckley‘s seminal 1994 album Grace.
Acoustic guitar players rejoice, as these three songs are heavy on the acoustic side. The basslines may be a bit sparse, but the guitar tracks more than make up for it. The tracks making up this pack are Grace, Last Goodbye and my personal favourite, easily the best version of Leonard Cohen’s classic track Hallelujah (well, apart from the Bono version, of course!).
This pack is an amazing get for Rocksmith, and something I never thought I’d see. Also, if this opens up the door for more Leonard Cohen in rhythm games, then I’m all for it!
Detuning is going to be an issue for those of you who aren’t in to that sort of thing, as Grace and the bass for Last Goodbye are in Drop D, and the guitar on Last Goodbye is Open G. Also important to note is that the lead for Hallelujah requires a capo, so make sure you’ve got one lying around if you want to play it.
