Song Speculation: Stevie Ray Vaughan to flood Rocksmith with content

 

Hello Rocksmith fans!

Looks like we are crossing another artist off the Top 40 Requested list finally!

“A man in a hat”

Let’s check out @DanAmrich’s clue shall we?

8906 = 0x22CA from hex to decimal
7907 = 999
9706 = 2 hours 41 minutes 46 seconds to seconds
2109 = 3*19*37
1312 = 10100100000
3512 = DB8 hex to decimal
6709 – 0.0.26.53 to decimal
1505 = decimal value of roman numerals MDV

= 4166

Whoops, in any event it unlocked this

Many people realized these were all dates and pictures of Texas Floods and @UbiParadise was right there to confirm it!


This isn’t SRV’s first appearance in Rocksmith as we were treated to a few of his licks via Born Under a Bad Sign

As for the other games, Texas Flood first appeared in Guitar Hero (2005) which reappeared in February 2009 along with the rest of the album for Rock Band 2 DLC. Once Rock Band 3 came out Pride and Joy even got a Pro Guitar upgrade!

 

Guitar Hero III featured a cover of Pride and Joy which was never resolved outside of On Tour (2008) which got a master track of the song. Finally with the release of Guitar Hero Live both Cold Shot and Crossfire have appeared via the GHTV service.

So knowing the past licensing agreements what might we expect to see in this Rocksmith DLC? We already know Texas Flood is on the way but what else could be in store for us next week?

What follows is speculation

There’s no way this isn’t in…

My wrist hurts just listening to it

Your tremolo game better be on point

Can you handle this phrasing?

Are you excited for another Top 40 artist to be added to Rocksmith? What four songs do you hope to see join Texas Flood? Or is this just way too above your skill level to even consider purchasing? Let us know!

November 11, 2016 10:47 pm

I’m probably in the minority here, but I’d love “Life by the Drop”

I don’t think there are any “bad” options from his catalogue.

not in the minority at all. It’s complete acoustic w no bass so just extremely unlikely

November 11, 2016 11:05 pm

Couldn’t stand the weather better be one, I love the solo on it

November 12, 2016 1:36 am

My top four wishes for Rocksmith were/ are SRV, Collective Soul, Gin Blossoms, and Guns’n’Roses. Two down, two to go.

November 11, 2016 10:49 pm

Pride and Joy, Lenny, Little Wing, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Love Struck, Rude Mood….we need more than a 5-pack.

November 12, 2016 2:48 am

This news has inspired me to break out of storage then set up the PS3 this weekend so I’m ready to go. Great work Rocksmith!

November 11, 2016 10:39 pm

Lenny, Crossfire, Mary had a little lamb, Love Struck, Life by the drop, House is a rockin. Shall I go on? Lol

November 12, 2016 12:56 am

Way to go RS team! I’ve been crossing my fingers and hoping for this pack since 2014.

Full Disclosure: I am disinterested in the majority of packs released. With the exception of maybe a single DLC and/or sporadic tracks, my last ‘must-buy’ was the Hendrix release. Being a causal player, that Jimi pack has sustained me for a long time (and will continue to). This pack was well timed. I don’t need to buy a DLC every month but its great to have access to new dense Blues guitar playing every 6 months or so.

Bravo!

Wow, where to start.
1) Okay first off, look at how many of us have stated something like, “I doesn’t matter what the other songs are” we’re buying it. When was the last time we got DLC and so many of us have said this? It doesn’t matter. I’m in agreement, it doesn’t matter, just bring it on.

2) While many have rejoiced, the DLC has been very boring for most of the year for me. I began to wonder if Ubisoft was even going to try and top that excellent Anniversary Pack. Well now you’ve done it.

3) I’m surprised they released this in mid-November. Goodness, what else could you have up your sleeve for Christmas?

With today being Veterans Day, this almost feels like a gift.

Thank you Ubisoft

Speculation: Pride and Joy
Cold Shot
Little Wing
Lenny

Would like to see: Empty Arms
Tightrope
Life Without You
Give Me Back My Wig (how can we do slide on RS)
A SECOND SRV PACK

Excellent. Okay, I’d love to see Give Me Back My Wig as one of the SRV tracks in this (or hopefully a future) pack.

I’m guessing prog isn’t your thing but I thought more than a few of us were of the opinion that “it doesn’t matter what the other songs are” when both the Yes and Rush packs came out recently.

Nothing bad to say about the music, but you are correct. As such I’m sorry to have missed that. I would guess the numbers for this SRV pack might be higher though. At any rate, good call.

To me, it does not matter what the other 4 songs are. Any song by Stevie is a must buy for me. This may be the best DLC this year and this year has been fantastic. He is one of my favorite guitarist. Man o man I am super excited. Keep up the great work Rocksmith!

I would love to see Pride & Joy as well as Little Wing but I’ll take anything and get this pack day 1.

With this pack, 2016 is (for me) the best year yet for Rocksmith dlc

As excited as I am for this pack -- it’s going to be too hard for me, but still a day 1 purchase -- if this is what is dropping in early November, I can’t wait to see what we get for mid to late December.

Not in any way trying to change the conversation, but I like this speculation. I’m going out on a limb and predicting AC/DC.

I think Little Wing was part of the Hendrix pack. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to have access to the SRV version. But I would guess that the RS team would try to avoid providing both originals and the covers of same.

I think Hendrix Estate would have objections to Little Wing by SRV being licensed

Just speculating here , but this must have taken a long time for the licensing department to get …. bravo for tenacity if that was the case. Another great artist on Rocksmith…
