Yes, it’s a @NickiMinaj four pack ne- nope, can’t do it. Listen closely to what’s being sampled at 1:25… Sound familiar?

 

I’ll help

That’s some mighty fine shaker-ing!

Next week’s DLC is a four pack including @chickenfootjoe’s Grammy nominated, Always With Me, Always With You (Surfing With The Alien 1987). Good luck mastering this one! (halsb in 2 weeks).

What else could be in the Variety Pack? Well, one song will be revealed over the weekend but for now we have the inside scoop that one of them is #MOARMETAL.

The following is speculation

Can it be Ghost time?

If they charted the banjo we’d all be screwed

not giving up hope


 

Are you excited to surf with the alien again? What songs do you think will be included in Variety Pack III? Let us know!

No Mumford and suck or Nikki. Top 40 these days is marketing, not music.

5 Minutes Alone by Pantera confirmed. Awesome “money riff” as Phil would call it. Love the pre-verse/breakdown riff. Great addition to the library from my fav Pantera album.

Speaking of popular bass players, and Satriani, How bout a future pack from super group Chickenfoot. Sammy Hagar, Joe Satriani, Michael Anthony, Chad Smith throwing down some bluesy rock south of the border. My choices would be: Oh Yeah, My Kinda Girl, Soap on a rope.

Happily surprised to see someone showing love to Chickenfoot.

I’d take some Mumford & Sons but a whole pack would be better. Although i have already taught myself Tompkin Square Park, Wilder Mind and Just Smoke off the second album. Excellent bass lines and much easier now they’ve gone electric.

Why can’t the best guitarists play over anything except the simplest, most monotonic, songs? Alex Lifeson smokes all those fret board jockeys because he can handle tempo changes.

Why can’t they solo over something easy like this?

Well i should imagine the best guitarists can riff on anything. But if you listen to that track you can hear the guitar leaving plenty of space for the kick ass bass line to shine. Really depends on the vibe of the song.

Kick ass bass line?? Always With You, Always With Me, kick ass bass line?? Are you joking??

Straight On has a kick ass bass line, and it doesn’t rush around like a chicken without a head. The song doesn’t even have a tempo change or compleax chord chart but the bass player varies his parts on his own and it’s awesome.

Dude, that bass line most definetly does not kick ass. Did you see the video? The bass player looks bored. This is a great song for guitar, bass….not so much.

For the sake of your readers and adoring fans would you please at least try to make your unceasing and unwarranted criticism of ubisoft humorous and/or original so that the reading of your comments isn’t a waste of time entirely? Thanks in advance! 😀

Yep, just keep living in that world of yours where the only reason a bunch of guitar music enthusiasts would say anything positive about Joe Satriani is because they want to suck up to Ubisoft.

You must be related to Donald Trump (I mean Drumpf) to have such thin skin. Perhaps, if you can’t take the heat, then get the frack out of the fire. Trying to type (talk) tough while hiding behind some fake name like an anonymous wuss. Fucking wimp.

Already got shot down on Maggot Brain.

For the sake of variety, how about

Cliffs of Rock City -- Brad Paisley
How Blue Can You Get -- B.B. King
Your Love -- The Outfield

Alright I think I’ve got this one
Dokken- Alone Again
Butthole Surfers -- Pepper
The Outlaws -- Green Grass and High Tides
Joe Satriani -- Always With You, Always With Me
Anyway way it’s still a variety pack so anything is up for grabs.

YESSS!!!!!!! just out of freaking nowhere. I cant began to tell y’all how freaking happy I am about getting AWYAWM. Ive been working on this one for awhile. That said, dont let it scare you off just because its Satriani song. Its almost half the speed of Satch Boogie, and much of the song is obtainable with some practice. The first chord in the rhythm arpeggio is a bit of a finger stretcher, but is also achievable with some reps. I hope we get the other layers as alt tracks. Whooo hooo!!! Cant wait

Thats a beautiful song. Good hit for the guitarists. I’m hoping for something as tasty as that for bass on one of the other four. 🙂

Some Ghost would be awesome, but I hope they would get their own pack some day (but I thought the same about Satriani and Steve Vai). Maybe we’re getting Bruce Dickinson’s The Tower. If its speculation, I’m going with a wishlist request.
