DLC Round-Up: June 2014

junersru

Hello, Rocksmith fans, and welcome to the June edition of the DLC Round-Up!

First let’s look at the results of last month’s:

Out of 689 votes total:

  • Cake received 43% of the vote with 293 Votes!
  • Slash was not too far behind with 30% of the vote – 206 Votes
  • The progressive drop tuned boys from Mastodon came in a respectful third place with 18% of the vote – 126 Votes
  • Last and very least was 311 with only 64 votes9%

No love for the frat boy reggae jams it seems!

This month gave us quite a bit of variety with five pack of Canadian pop-punk metal influenced Sum 41, the mixed bag of Classic Hits, the 5 pack of Alternative Metal band Godsmack, and finally the first 2014 era mixed bag pack, Surf Rock!

June wasn’t too bad for bassists as well with the infectious, yet easy to pick up Funk #49, and the hypnotic somber bass line of Godsmack’s Voodoo.

June’s big must have guitar song should no doubt go to Roy Buchanan’s Sweet Dreams. 

If that’s not your style I’d also have to recommend Sum 41’s Hell Song and Godsmack’s Awake. 

Of course one can’t really go wrong with learning Misirlou right?

Arrangement Standard Drop D Eb Standard D Standard Drop C
Lead 9 4 1  X  2
Rhythm 6 2 1  X  2
Bass 9 4 1  X  2

 

June added some much needed Drop D love to the Rocksmith 2014 library, but overall it was another great month for those that hate anything outside of E Standard!

Which brings us to the question on everyone’s mind:

Sum 41
Classic Singles
Godsmack
Surf Rock
 

 

See you next month!

Anyway, the best pack ever is Slash. Anastasia best song to play from far !

I only bought the classic pack and the surf pack (what can I say… I’m into classic tunes…) All of them seemed right about my difficulty level -- challenging but not out of reach. But the surf pack is probably the more fun of the two, so far.

But what I really want is more music from 80’s hair bands… 🙂

And Rush. In spite of already having.. what, 7 songs from Rush, and it being the best-represented band in the game? I want everything from Rush.

HA!

Sadly (in my opinion anyways), I believe that Radiohead has more songs at 8 now. I would love to see Rush get more since it is so fun/challenging, but I’d also love to see more and more new bands added.

I agree. I would love some 80s hair bands. Bon Jovi or more Def Leppard. The stuff is a bit cheesy, I admit, but it’s catchy and fun to play.

I’m all for the cheese. 🙂 Their fun to play, guitar-heavy, catchy, and people will recognize it. The 80s stuff wasn’t afraid of a little bit of shred on the solos, too, so there’s some fun technical work.

Sum41, Cake and Surf pack have been a great pleasure to learn and play along with, my wife even liked the noise from the basement. A few more packs like this and maybe I can convince her that a new guitar would make me sound even better 😉

Hah! I had to do the same. While I’m not sure my wife likes hanging out in my office with me while I’m practicing, she’s happy to see me finally gaining proficiency on a musical instrument -- especially one with a volume knob… 🙂

There needs to be another vote selection for those of is that were disappointed and didn’t purchase anything. Though I appreciate their hard work and efforts, just none worth buying for me

I’d argue that someone else was being a bitch. But I’ll refrain from doing so.

Don’t like the DLC? Don’t buy it. Easy-peasy. 😉

Surf Rock was a must for me, so I got the full pack, these are classic songs that I really want to learn… 😀

Yet another solid month.

I would have voted Sum 41…. but then “Walk Don’t Run” was just released, and I have always wanted to learn that song

Gotta say -- surf pack. That Misirlou is so infectious and the rhythm on Wipe Out is just way too hip. Awesome pack!

I liked aint no sunshine and Funk#49, and I love the surf pack. No time for sum41 personally, but I enjoyed most of this months DLC.

Not one song for me.. not quite over the fence over one or two songs so I passed. Maybe the upcoming month has too much I want instead and I’ll cry for my wallet.

I did pick up some old DLC from the Steam Sale though.

Not much for me this month, only the Godsmack pack and James Gang.
