Noice! Nice mix, and this is a must-have pack for bassists imo. Dude just wails on it and is so melodic and awesome. I was just watching the unplugged the other day and I'm still in awe. I was a huuuge STP fan, though. Purple was such an amazing album.

I would've left off Sex Type Thing. Put in Vasoline, Meatplow or Crackerman.

But Creep, Big Empty and Interstate Love Song are some of my favorites, so it's all good. Real strong pack.

Got to see Scott's solo band (doing STP and VR classics) last year, dude still had it. Too bad he couldn't kick.

edit: linky: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uzx26V4WDlA Check that bass line.

You already get Vasoline from the first Rocksmith.

Finally got around to trying these out on bass and they're fantastic.  Thanks for the heads up about that pack!  Also happily played through a bunch of the Soundgarden stuff last night and am remembering why it's bad to stop playing for a few months.  Ouch.

Mostly been putting DLC mentions in current threads, but there's been a ton of great DLC this year. Another year without a refresh, which I'm kind of ok with, since short of true TAB or the return of the venue/crowd minigames I think it's near perfect.

But they DID release a 'remastered' version (free via patch to existing owners). Their words, because while there are some really nice QoL improvements, it's mostly just interface tweaks. Easier search, which is nice when you have a massive song list (I may have a massive song list), tweaks to how Nonstop play works, tweaks to the riff repeater (which I stil need to check out).

I already liked this game a LOT and was way better on bass (mostly their funky tablite is easier to read with 4 colors)...but getting my new bass made me really damned good, hah. Glad to see it's still getting development, the song packs have to be making a killing because they honestly make the game. I mean, it bums me out to jam at my friend's house with NO DLC AT ALL. No Rush? No Maiden? YE GODS!

Can't you get the DLC if you login with your Ubisoft or Steam account at your friend's place? Steam Friends & Family Sharing maybe?

So, my nephew has been learning cording on acoustic for a while now, is really in to it, and has asked Santa for an electric guitar this year.

He's also a complete XBox One addict (Minecraft mostly).

So my question is, is Rocksmith accessible to an old for his age nine year old?

I'd say likely yes, probably the most important factor will be getting the right guitar for his size.

Probably. Invert the fretboard display in game, I don't know why they made it backwards. Otherwise he would struggle reading real music later.

Since he already knows how to play a bit on the acoustic guitar he should fine on Rocksmith. Rocksmith is designed to accommodate all ranges of players including total beginners and has lots of settings and modes to help beginners along.

Probably. Invert the fretboard display in game, I don't know why they made it backwards. Otherwise he would struggle reading real music later.
I understand why they have it that way* but it can cause a lot of confusion for those who either already know tabulature or want to learn how to read it later on.

*  it matches the order of strings if you imagine your fretboard is transparent and you are looking at the strings through the back of the fretboard

I played briefly with a couple guys I knew in a 3 piece. I was guitar and vox, the drummer was the drummer, but the bassist was a percussionist I've known for decades (used to run sound for my band in the day). He'd been playing bass for about 4-6 months using Rocksmith to learn and was able to hang for a four hour jam using just charts printed from the Internet. I was impressed (granted, he's been in bands for ever but that was still a 0-60 kinda thing).

Amazing learning tool, and fun for old farts like me who don't want the headache of dealing with bandmates :)

Obligatory "wish they'd add a real tablature mode" rant. Because then it would be near perfect. And always support tracks from previous versions because holy crap.

I really need to go get a guitar or bass and play this. I bought it in a 3am amazon sale Trippy posted about like 3 years ago and it still hasn't come out of the box.  why so serious?

'Reality' is the only word in the language that should always be used in quotes.

As someone who primarily plays a classical guitar...not sure why that's a thing. Outside of my very limited current situation (trying to get my middle finger healthy and can't play bass or electric guitar), I'd never consider playing rocksmith on an acoustic. And even now, I'm just waiting it out. Also, no USB mic, I run my XLR mics through a USB preamp, not sure if that works.

There are plenty of DLC songs (i.e. not counting all the user generated songs) that have guitar parts that were played on acoustic guitars on the originals and I think it would be fun to play those parts on an acoustic in the game as well.

Love that they decided to just keep improving this. DLC song sales must be good money. (not a great surprise)

I have someone who requested a ukulele as a gift. I'm thinking that it is much more likely to see sustained use if it could be used with Rocksmith. Some quick googling shows a few unanswered questions and some old articles talking about how it will be possible when Rocksmith 2014 releases. Can anyone here confirm that this does/does not work? If it does, is there an instrument you would reccommend in the $50-150 price range?

*edit*

After continuing to read on this, it seems like a U bass seems to work, but not a regular ukulele.

I have less of a problem remembering and more of a problem being able to pick the right string. "fuck that was the 5th.."

OR just plain not being able to get my hand in the right place fast enough. "14th fret, 19th, 3rd..fuck!"

That comes with time. The 15th and 17th fret markers are really useful to memorize early on, and the pentatonic box helps remember 12/14, as well.

What throws me at the top is the 20+ fret stuff, not helped by my new bass only being a 20-fret model (my old one was a full 24 fret).

Pretty cool Guardians of the Galaxy themed DLC pack this week:

Blue Swede - “Hooked On A Feeling”
David Bowie - “Moonage Daydream”
Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell - “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”
Raspberries - “Go All The Way”
Redbone - “Come And Get Your Love”

More Bowie is always welcome (and Moonage Daydream would be in my top 5 favorite Bowie songs).
