Hello Rocksmith fans!
Welcome to another week of Variety! We’ve got three new artists to the Rocksmith library this week, so let’s check it out!
Over the weekend we learned that both @BadfingerUK’s Baby Blue and @U2’s Bad would be two out of four tracks released for this week. Today (via Xbox AU) we can confirm that both @SPACEHOG’s bass driven In The Meantime (1996), and The Shadows instrumental hit Apache (1960) will be included as well!
- Badfinger “Baby Blue”|Lead/Rhythm/Bass [E Standard] – [XBL] / Steam
- The Shadows “Apache”|Lead/Rhythm/Bass [E Standard] – [XBL] / Steam
- Spacehog “In The Meantime”|Lead/Alt. Lead/Rhythm/Bass [E Standard] – [XBL] / Steam
- U2 “Bad”|Lead/Bass [E Standard] – [XBL] / Steam
Yup, for the first time in quite awhile we have a song with no rhythm… Of course Rocksmith Remastered will automatically switch, not a huge deal, right?
This week’s pack has one alt. arrangement — an alt. Lead for Spacehog’s “In the Meantime”
The default lead is a “best-of” arrangement that takes from both the lead and rhythm, and represents what a single guitarist might play from both parts. The alt. lead is much simpler, as it features all of the single-note guitar work, as well as the guitar solos.
Last time we had a song without a lead part was 11/26/2013 with Karma Police.
It feels strange they would do it again now
Also for RG it was RATM's Know Your Enemy (12/09/2014) and for bass it was Red House (12/16/2014). I wonder why they detached from their habits of always making an arrangement for the three main parts for this specific song 🤔
Some heavy hitters in this 15th edition of Variety! Are you in for all four songs, or is this a pick a few kind of week? Let us know!
