21 thoughts on “Alternate Arrangements in Rocksmith Remastered

              1. So I have played through Short Skirt/Long Jacket on both Lead and Bass paths numerous times now and have not seen this alternate path show up once before or after the song. Tried setting up Nonstop Play mode exactly as Ben showed in his screenshot; the difference in songs and arrangement does not add up. I have even tried downloading all five songs from the Cake DLC pack again just to make sure something had not quietly been changed since the Remastered update. Still, nothing; the only explanation I can think of is that Ubisoft SF actually region-locked an entire instrument path for some reason, otherwise I would really like to know what’s being played at here since this matter is growing increasingly irritating.

                  1. I’m on a Sony platform as well, PS3 specifically.

                    I am left wondering if PS3s are now generally going to be the more/most difficult of the systems for Ubisoft SF to try and look after in regards to anomalies like this one; it seemed like they were requesting more system information than usual from PS3 owners during the process of fixing the problems that the Remastered update introduced (which made sense when I went about filing a report myself and found out about all the different PS3 model numbers that needed consideration), plus they apparently were not even able to replicate the PS3’s freezing issue themselves for a fair amount of time.

  1. Thanks, this list is very helpful!

    I noticed that a couple of alternate arrangements are missing from the list:

    Brand New -- Sic Transit Gloria…Glory Fades has an alternate rhythm (Eb Standard)
    The Jimi Hendrix Experience -- Foxey Lady has an alternate lead (E Standard)
    Rush -- Headlong Flight has two alternate leads, one in Open E and another in E Standard
