Rocksmith to release Easy Exercises from Greg Studley

Hello Rocksmith fans!

If you watched yesterday’s @Twitch stream from @UbisoftStudioSF you might have already known what’s coming this week… For those who don’t we will catch you up.

Greetings, Rocksmith fans! For this week’s DLC, Rocksmith is excited to try something a little different. For years, the community has requested new lessons, exercises, and guitar drills in the form of DLC, and we think we’ve found a great way to do so! Greg Studley—author, teacher, and Rocksmith Notetracker—adapted several lessons from his book series Speed, Accuracy, & Technique for Guitar as new tracks for Rocksmith. The first batch of these are coming Tuesday, June 04: Rocksmith Easy Exercises, Vol 1.

[Ubisoft Forums]

Each of the five exercises are available for guitar and bass, and this pack will be available at the special price of $4.99 USD. Later on, look for more Rocksmith exercises from Greg for our intermediate and advanced players!



Easy Exercises Volume 01 – $4.99

  • Linear Playing [Guitar Only]
  • Hammer-Ons [Guitar Only]
  • Pull-Offs [Guitar Only]
  • String Skipping [Guitar Only]
  • String Switching [Guitar Only]
  • Linear Playing [Bass Only]
  • Hammer-Ons [Bass Only]
  • Pull-Offs [Bass Only]
  • String Skipping [Bass Only]
  • String Switching [Bass Only]

Not much more to say than that! This is something people have been asking for a very long time, are you happy to see this happening or are you beyond the need of material like this after 1400 songs released? Let us know!

I think this is a good idea but I would like to see it along side a song pack rather than replace it.

yes, ideally with songs that support the different techniques being taught

I was excited about this until I watched the video. Waaay too basic. Looks super-boring.

Great idea, but a little too basic for me now. Might be okay for people who are brand new to guitar and using the game.

I would welcome an update to the guitarcade games where you can stay in your sweet spot to put in some work. Currently on things like String skip saloon, duck redux, and scale racer, I spend a not-trivial amount of time working up to speed, but the mini-games just charges right past that to hyper speed where I fail out. So for, I don’t know I’m making this up, like 3 minutes of slow stuff that I can do I get 20 seconds of challenge. The mini-games are much more interesting than a metronome, but with a metronome I can set the speed and work on that. If Rocksmith could offer a new mode where they ditch the score and back off the speed when you start failing to let you practice the speed you need work at, it would be a lot more useable.

Completely agree about the guitarcade games. They really need a fix like you’ve described.

Yeah I don’t even play the games for that exact reason. I think you should be able to treat it like riff repeater, with the ability to set a speed / difficulty and stay there if you wish.

Good idea. There should be a time sig/rhythm exercise set. Rocksmith’s never really offered much help with that.

Scales when? As a beginner who uses rocksmith having a scales pack would be amazing to have for practice. Maybe each time you level up it could get faster.

Session mode has all the scales

Scales racer and Scale warriors in the guitar arcade may also help. As Sonic points out though, session mode is where it’s at for scales.

I like this and I need some technique practice. Hopefully it gets more complex than the preview shows.

they should of included all difficult’s or in the future include a bundle. You’re telling me that in the future med and advance difficulty will take a two weeks of dlc away from us… you can’t tell me it took 6 months to program those easy exercises… The good news is, we can never complain about bad dlc ever again because I can’t imagine anything worse than this…

Sounds like exercises offered in the lessons and rock smith challenges. We will see.

I like the idea, these are a little easy for me but my daughter has just started to play bass, so I may pick this up for her. I look forward to seeing what the more advanced content delivers.

They definitely could’ve given us a song pack as well. Hope this means they’ve got something up they’re sleeve like a really good update or new game. As long as there is a ps3 version. There was no ps4 when this started and I’ve got 500 songs that are ps3 only. I won’t buy a ps5 just for this either that would be silly. Other note and partial observation, they could’ve expanded the lessons section plus everything has levels regardless of if it’s the step up of learn a song or the 3 basic options of score attack, so unless they figure milk it they could’ve done this series (& expand it of course)) so that it would grow and adapt with you. As it is unless you have never played an instrument no one here needs this. I looked at the video. It looks like something anyone can do and then start to get comfortable with the second they pick up their first instrument. Which is no one here. Oh well. Maybe some future ones will be interesting and more useful.

I’ve bought a gaming laptop and purchase nearly 450 songs, and my PS4 has 700 songs. I know it sucks to repurchase songs again but you can take advantage of the massive steams sales. Plus I tend to buy different songs compared to what’s on my PS4 for new challenge. Investing in the steam version/laptop is great for playing while traveling and performing at family gatherings. I love Rocksmith so much that it really doesn’t bother me to spend the money again exspecially the massive steam sales. A steam sale is going on now but game only and not the DLC but there should be a June sale around the 21st but it isn’t quite curtain…
