Word up Rocksmith fans!
Over the weekend we found out that King of Rock (1985) would be included. Today, we can reveal (thanks to Xbox AU) that another Eddie Martinez guitar soaked track Rock Box (Run-D.M.C. – 1984) will be included as well, with the predicted It’s Tricky (Raising Hell – 1987) rounding off the pack.
This song (It’s Tricky -ed) contains samples of “My Sharona” by The Knack, as well as the entire vocal structure from “Mickey” by Toni Basil. The Knack sued Run DMC over the track in 2006, and the lawsuit was settled out of court.
- Run-DMC “It’s Tricky” | Lead/Bass [E Standard] | Rhythm [D Standard] – [XBL] / Steam
- Run-DMC “King of Rock” | Lead/Rhythm/Bass [E Standard] – [XBL] / Steam
- Run-DMC “Rock Box” | Lead/Alt. Lead/Rhythm/Bass [E Standard] – [XBL] / Steam
D Standard? It’s Tricky!
“Rock Box” from this week’s Run-D.M.C. Song Pack contains an alt. lead path.
This arrangement features overdubbed lead harmonies–mainly during the intro solo section, but also in the main solo sections that occur during the last third of the song. This arrangement is otherwise very similar to the representative lead arrangement.
Are you excited to learn the guitar lines of Eddie Martinez and play Bass along with one of the greatest Hip Hop acts of all time? Or is this something you’d never give a chance? Let us know!
