Greetings Rocksmith fans,
Initial speculation was thinking emo or possibly Limp Bizkit, until shihdo looked at how it was folded:
I think that may be the fastest a hint has ever been solved!
So, we know there’s going to be 5 songs, they’ll be sold as a pack, and one of the artists is a “king”. With that in mind, here’s what we think the pack could look like:
Freddie King – Going Down
We have Albert, we have B.B., and that means there’s only one “King” of Blues Rocksmith has yet to feature! Featuring an absolute cracker of a guitar part throughout, Going Down would be the perfect way to introduce Freddie to the platform!
George Thorogood and the Destroyers – Bad to the Bone
Arguably one of the most popular Blues songs of all time, this song would be right at home in any Blues pack. Having one of the most well known riffs ever recorded means it would be right at home in Rocksmith 2014!
John Mayer Trio – Who Did You Think I Was?
This’ll be a very controversial pick, but John Mayer is one of the most popular artists today and he undeniably has a very bluesy sound. His music is historically very hard to license, but PowerGig managed to lure him in with the promise of a real guitar, so I’d imagine Rocksmith would have no problem doing the same!
Muddy Waters – Mannish Boy
From very modern Blues we go to one of the originals. While you may hear this and just hear the simplicity, this song is absolutely perfect for a beginner guitarist looking to master the very fundamentals of a blues riff! Of course, being an absolute classic doesn’t hurt either!
Robert Johnson – Cross Road Blues
Of course, you’d be hard pressed to have a proper Blues pack without the man Eric Clapton himself dubbed “the most important blues singer that ever lived.” We’ve got some older songs in the game before, but we’ve never gone back quite this far. Plus, this may be our first song to support a slide!
What do you think the pack could look like? Are you happy for more blues or is it not your cup of tea? Le us know in the comments!
