Hello, Rocksmith fans, and welcome to the July edition of the DLC Round-Up! Each month we will take a look back at all the DLC we have received and poll you, our wonderful readers as to what DLC stole your heart!
First let’s look at the results of last month’s:
Out of 491 votes total:
- Surf Rock received 42% of the vote with 208 Votes!
- Sum 41 was not too far behind with 30% of the vote – 147 Votes
- The Classic Rock Hits of Roy Buchanan, Bill Withers and James Gang narrowly avoided fourth place with 14% of the vote – 70 Votes
- Godsmack was beaten by Classic Rock Hits by only SIX VOTES – 64 votes – 13%
Interesting results indeed…
July probably held the most variety we’ve seen yet, within five weeks of DLC content. From the finger stretching chords of Billy Talent, to the indie-punkish rhythm and lead arrangements of The Libertines, the atmospheric drop tuned angst filled anthems of Deftones, the ultra smooth sounds of Yacht Rock, and finally the hellish finger mangling riffs of Lamb of God.
This month had bassists rejoicing over great tracks such as: Try Honesty (Billy Talent), What Katie Did (The Libertines), Hole In The Earth (Deftones), China Grove (The Doobie Brothers), and the ultra funky I Keep Forgettin’ (Michael McDonald). If you are fond of never touching the D string, you might also enjoy the Lamb of God Pack.
As for the big guitar song of July it has to go to Steve Lukather‘s incredible guitar solo from Toto’s Hold The Line.
If you prefer something a bit heavier than look no further than Ghost Walking by Lamb of God, your fingers are going to hate you…
If you are looking for more riff and less flash than you should definitely check out Billy Talent’s Devil in a Midnight Mass.
Quite the diverse set of tunings this month, you could practically hear people with floating bridges complaining at the announcement of each song!
|Arrangement||Standard||Drop D||Eb Drop Db||Drop C|
A big month for Drop D fans! It’s always nice to get some Drop C songs, (the more there are the better reason to tune that low) but once again it looks like E Standard wins again with a commanding lead thanks to both Yacht Rock and The Libertines (and Billy Talent only having one guitarist).
Which brings us to the question on everyone’s mind:
See you next month!
