Rocksmith 2014 DLC 3/25 – Matchbox Twenty

Well, looks like our puzzle solving skills worked out yet again, because today’s DLC is most definitely Matchbox Twenty, and we got FIVE songs coming at you. Looks like we were able to guess 3/5 songs seeing as how this is the first time 3 AM, Unwell, and Push have appeared in a music game!

Bassists take note, you will need a Capo to play 3AM!

Matchbox Twenty Song Pack – $11.99

Are you excited to tackle these songs? Did you enjoy arguing about Matchbox Twenty all weekend? Are you interested if the fact the next Rocksmith 2014 DLC falls on April Fools? Let us know!

Hey Elliott,

I got around to finally playing the MB20 DLC today. Can say I really enjoy it. I think “Let’s See how far We’ve come” is the song that Target used to spam in the electronics section. I seemed to know the words too well for it not to be. Has a good driving beat too.

3am also uses a capo on bass. First song to do so IIRC (at least that I own; I own most of the DLC though). I love all the fret hand muting their bassist does. Push chorus is super fun. Also love the tone on Unwell.

I don’t think I really care about there newer stuff from the last 2 albums. But I love Unwell and 3AM, should’ve had Bent but still a good pack. P.S. Oh yeah any 90s rock will make for an awesome pack.

I thought it was interesting how in your video for “how far we’ve come” on Guitar when it has you play the G Barre chord on the 3rd fret, it says “G Maj”. I don’t think i’ve ever seen rocksmith add that before

i’m pissed i was hyped up about this paid the 12bucks plus tax and its REQUIRED I NEED A F*CKIN CAPO regardless they cost 5 bucks but that’s another dlc song this is the last dlc pack i buy for a long time if i ever even do again i can’t even get past 20% on 3am cause i miss just about every note that i hit cause of a stupid piece of plastic that didnt even come with the game and isnt required for any other songs

i’m starting to regret the couple hundred bucks i put into this game i’d rather play with a amp with a radio at least i won’t need a CAPO

It’s. A. Capo. Calm down, geez. And there’s a song by Oasis that needs a capo, too. Find something worthwhile to piss and moan about.

One of the Stones songs (Paint It Black?) also uses a capo on the alt. lead and alt. rhythm charts if you want to get more use out of it.

But if you really can’t afford the investment, you could always manufacture one out of rubber bands and a pencil, or simply persuade a close friend to apply an appendage of their choice to the required fret.

yeah good one…bag the game. all…because you don’t want to invest in a device that will let you learn and expand your abilities further..

you do know you can learn to play songs that also use capo’s away from rocksmith?

I see a capo as a handy piece of kit to have lying around, much like a bigsby, your not going to use it on “EVERY” song, but its hell handy to have when you need it.

This isn’t my cup of tea but for all the people who gripe every time new DLC is released here is a thought. … instead of spending time bitching about bands you want to play not being in rocksmith. Why don’t you spend that time constructively and do it the old way and listen to the songs you want to learn or easier still spend that time finding the tab for songs you want to play. Either way is a better use of your time than sitting, crying at a keyboard because you havent got the DLC you want.

Actually I have never been into this band, but after checking the songs
they at least seem the type of songs I have fun playing in RS. I have noticed
that certain music I love to listen, I hate to play it. And the opposite seems
to be also true… I may buy a couple of these.

I’ve actually found that out too. Some of the songs on the disc I initially avoided, but after some time playing the stuff I like to listen too, the others were pretty decent, if nothing else, it has opened my eyes to other generes.

Probably that getting the top guitarists in-game as DLC is as cheap and easy as just snapping ones fingers so why are they offering Matchbox 20 DLC instead?

I tell you what…I was hesitant when I first read it could be Mb20, ….but I’ve got to admit…. 4 out of 5 of those songs are awesome to hear again, and I didn’t appreciate the guitar riffs in them that I can hear these days…takes me back to my teenage years when I hear them.

IMHO this is a honest good all round pack, RS has my money $$$ for this one.

I am excited for this bit probably won’t get the whole pack. I liked the riff repeater pack more. So will likely only pick up the 3 songs that where right.

They couldn’t have gone with blander songs relative to their library 😕 Still a buy for me, but certainly not with the excitement something like Soul, Bent or Real World would add. Let this be a lesson Rocksmith: don’t just go down the list of most popular songs on iTunes (as it would appear)

Apparently the deal with those bands was licensing, and it seems like the situation was appropriate for a five pack, so that doesn’t apply 100%. And no, they aren’t a one hit band. They definitely got(/get) more airplay than SOAD

Would it really matter less to you if it was just a 3 pack? They still released Matchbox 20 this week either way. If you’re bitter because bands you like didn’t get a 5 pack, that’s one thing; to be sad that someone else is getting 5 songs from possibly one of their favorite bands, well, that doesn’t make sense to me.
