Speculation: White Stripes return to Rocksmith 2014

Greetings Rocksmith fans!

It’s Friday, and the DLC clue has already been solved, in under ten minutes!

aaaand confirmed!

The White Stripes are an American rock duo formed in 1997. You may remember some of their songs like Seven Nation Army, and if you haven’t heard that song then… I guess now you have!

We already had a song in Rocksmith 1 (Icky Thump) so it’s only natural that the band receive some supplemental DLC (hopefully a 5 pack)

Confirmed

Please.

Because “Not all tracks coming on Tuesday have basslines, but some do

Confirmed by @CrossieRS

Not likely, more of a personal request.

Bassists get ready to rabble as there could be a large chance you get left out for a few of next week’s tracks… Is The White Stripes a mega hit band that you will be insta-buying? Let us know in the comments below.

Months of bad DLC. Nothing interesting since the classical pack, and that was more appealing as a gimmick than it was stuff I was dying to buy.

Looks like that isn’t changing this week. I haven’t touched this game since early summer. Pretty pathetic.

WHAAAAAT?????? What about the session mode? It’s insanely good!!! I learnt how to navigate the neck in any key by just jamming scales shapes in that mode way better than I ever knew them before. You are missing out!

Pathetic? White Stripes and Foreigner aren’t good enough for you? I’d love to hear what music you’ve created that’s any better.

It’s one thing to not be interested in the music selection, but to call it pathetic just because you’re not a fan? That in itself is pathetic.

It’ll just be 7 Nation Army for me. White Stripes are so overrated it’s stupid. No bass, terrible drumming, but it’s so raw and unpolished that it’s apparently “cool” to like. These guys definitely opened the door for countless other no-talent-indie-hacks.

I was really hoping for some Chili Peppers or RATM… oh well.

I think all of us who plays bass are hoping for the Chili’s and have been since day one… haven’t had a challenge on bass since the Boston Pack. Duran Duran, as much as I love the pack, was easy for me.

Hmmm? No bass? So that makes him overrated? I would think that makes them underrated as Jack often plays a bass line with his guitar. Lets see, Jack White is continually in the top 20 of all time guitarists on most reputable sites. Overrated? Morello is totally overrated, dude. Uses way too many effects, simple progressions and all he does (redundantly) is that gimmicky slide and kill switch thingy, wow thats impressive. You must be a bassist, prob hate The Doors too cuz they have no bassist, lol. Bassists ha!

Morello plays some challenging rhythms starting phrases on offbeat 16ths etc with percussive rakes and muted notes thrown in — I find it difficult and he is very under-appreciated.

I also like Jack White and have enjoyed playing all the RS songs Icky Thump and Sixteen Saltines. I wil get this pack.

Johnny Ramone also ends up on these “best guitarist” lists, so that kind of tells you how meaningful they are. Not a WS hater or fan specifically, but OP is correct. They’ve found a niche, but they’re not really all that good.

So, I ll buy a DLC but I’ll not able to play some songs because I only have basses and no guitars.
I guess, one day, they’ll release a DLC with no guitarlines.

I think I’ll pass on this one, the only White Stripes song i like is Icky Thump and RS1 did a poor job on that one by not charting those solos and I doubt they would remake it in this dlc. On a side note I hope we get some more challenging dlc soon, I’m starting to get a little too comfortable. I need my fingers to bleed!

Some of the solo parts were, but others where on guitar with an octave pedal. They should have arranged the organ parts on guitar anyway, It would have been possible by using the octave pedal.

Actually those “organ” solos were played on a clavioline, but I agree that the charting in Icky Thump was disappointing.

Whether Bandfuse is dead or not, this kind of DLC would still be perfect for a real guitar game that uses stems and ducking, so you don’t have to double up your guitar playing all the time with the original guitar.

I seem to remember them saying the note tracking didn’t support slides, but that may have been just RS1 (hence the freebird chart being a bit meh)

Speaking of lackluster RS1 charts, the chart for ICKY Thump was a heap of garbage. They did not include the solos at all and that made the song boring and repetitive.

I’m mixed, I may get it, I may not. I like some good old rock and roll, and this is mostly that, but the songs that don’t have basslines, I really think they NEED basslines. I’m just waiting for the bass to kick in to really make the track go, but it never happens… this better mean that next week is Primus or Chili’s or Larry Graham or Funkadelic or just something really good for the bassists! Yeah I can wish. I’ve already put in my requests. I shouldn’t post when it’s this late. Sorry.

We want the funk doesn’t have any slap in it, and Rio doesn’t either, just a couple of pops -- it really does not count as a slap bass track at all. Higher Ground is the only slap bass track the game has ever seen. And I nailed that on the first game.

I will admit I missed this one as I don’t much like this band, but to be fair a couple of slap riffs and most of the song in fingerstyle still doesn’t, to me, count as a slap bass track. Sorry to be a pedant, but i am one so there you go. 😉
