If you right click it in chrome and to an image search it says "¤ron man" but it wont be BS.

Well it potentially might not be the song Iron Man, but that result is referencing the movies so could be from the soundtrack? But could also be the search being weird with the pic since I can't think of anything with that to relate to the song or the movie or anything else. :)

Can anybody reverse image search those people individually? My MS Paint isn't powerful to break down that image.

Well was before my time, but a little creative google searching (Ahem typing famous guy with an accordian) showed the accordian one is Lawrence Welk whom I've heard of, but know nothing about. :)

Bertrand Russel?

Joseph Louis Franšois Bertrand

And the cartoon is rocklyric.

So that guy is douglas adams on the top right.

He wrote hitchhikers guide to the galaxy.

A famous quote is Don't Panic.

Coldplay has a song called Don't Panic.

My best early guess is that Coldplay is somehow involved. This would make sense, since they are in BF already

jagaroth40

Top right is Douglas Adams
Bottom left is Joseph Louis Francois Bertrand
Bottom right is Yakko/Wakko Animaniacs

2 more possible clues:

Picture is tilted
Picture is black-and-white



EDIT: All 3 men born March 11

It's Yakko

So all we get is an image with no additional clues, discussion, or confirmation from you? If that's the case, I'm disappointed and will probably bow out...it's just going to turn into an echo chamber of wishful thinking and whoever actually gets it right will just be drowned out by the noise. In my opinion, what made last week so fun and unique was your participation, banter, and course correction within the thread. I hope you will consider continuing that in some way.

On March 11 of 2013 Vivian Campbell of Def Leppard had surgery due to Hodgkin's lymphoma. So looks like we're finally getting Def Leppard DLC!

A Bing search of March 11 indicates that, among other things, the earthquake/tsunami/***ushima I Nuclear Power Plant disaster occurred on that date. If not 311, is there another mod-dren band whose name or discography might have a connection to such an event? Maybe the diamond-shaped picture decodes into the radiation-hazard placard. :confused:

Edit:
HAHA! I just noticed that the name of the power plant was auto-censored! :cool:

On 3/11 this year...the 2 biggest concerts by my estimation... *eliminating hip hop, R&B and country.

Tool in San Francisco (isn't that where Ubi is located?)

Iggy Pop / Patti Smith / New Order in NYC (that would be a cool singles pack)

311 has been a favorite of mine for almost 20 years. I'm incredibly excited for this. I already know how to play many of their songs; they're not terribly difficult. Tim Mahoney utilizes a lot of technique in his playing. So, kinda easy to play, but somewhat challenging to play right.
Also, P-Nut is a great bass player. Depending on what songs picked; will be really fun for bass players!

Other March 11 birthdays could link to:

Mike Percy (Dead or Alive bassist) - image being rotated, could be 'spin', song 'You Spin Me Round'

Not sure any of the others merit a DLC pack.../

DOA would be a really great idea and ,as usual with those,will probably never happen. :(

The image itself is actually rotated by -49░ ... and 360-49 is just one more 311

311 sounds good to me. It fits the clues, I love 311 and I have been asking for some kind of Ska/Rock Steady/Reggae. I will be very happy no matter what, as long as its 311.

As for the songs in the pack I'm hoping some stuff off of the album "Grass Roots" but they have 11 albums as of this year, also their latest album "Stereolithic" came out 3/11/14.

My guesses: Amber, Beautiful Disaster, 8:16 AM, Don't Tread on Me, Jackolantern's Weather . Really I have no idea. It could be greatest hits, new stuff, a mix, or it could be like the AFI pack (hits and one good relatively unknown track).

Fingers Crossed :)

It's warming up and nothing says summer like 311. I'll take Come Original, Amber and Champagne (two of the most chill songs on earth) as well as Speak Easy. We'll see, will we get the chill 311 or the power chord heavy 311?

You're right, they don't. Nor do they try to. They generally structure their songs around a riff or bassline. Even the few instrumental songs they have are structured that way. Not everyone's thing I guess.

I really like Blink 182 and 311, not so much Good Charlotte. After them and some of their contemporaries received frequent radio play, I began leaning towards genres of music other than rock. But I have to admit Fred, the March 11 date could point to them as you hinted at earlier.

From 311 wiki pages

311 Day[edit]
On March 11, 2000, 311 began celebrating an unofficial holiday of their own creation, which they called 311 Day.[7] The band chose the date based on its numerical association with their own name: March is the third month of the year, so March 11 is written as 3/11. Every other year on March 11, the band performs an extended concert for thousands of their fans.

In 2000, the band played 47 songs.[8] In 2002, they increased the set list to 59 songs. In 2004, 311 played 68 songs. The band played entire albums, rarities and covers. Later that year, a DVD was released of the performance that contained 64 of the 68 songs.[8] 311 Day in 2006 was held at the Mid-South Coliseum in Memphis, Tennessee. The band played 65 songs. The intended set list was cut short from 69 songs because of a strict midnight curfew. The band recorded the entire show in high definition,and a 2-hour edit of the show aired on HDTV on December 10. In 2008, 311 Day was held in the New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana. Over three separate sets, the band played 63 songs to a sold-out crowd of 14,000 fans, who represented all 50 states and 13 countries.[citation needed] In 2010, 311 Day took place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.[7] All 60 songs, 32 of which were different from 311 Day in 2008,[9] were broadcast live on the web in a video on demand format described as a "professional multi-camera HD production."[10] In 2012, 311 Day took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and, for the first time, was split into two days. The band performed 79 songs during the two-day concert. On July 3, 2013, the band announced at the Unity Tour show in Chicago that 311 Day 2014 would be returning to New Orleans.

I saw 311 in concert a long time ago, they have some interesting rhythmic variety in their songs, so I think there's something to be learned from them. It's not really my cup 'o tea, so given the backlog of DLC I have currently it's not going to be something I jump to get on day 1.

Ubisoft is a multinational. For other game in the franchise, it does not seem that there is a primary market. For example "Assassin's creed "and "watch dogs" do not have a single main target countries.

No, I haven't given up. I think it's a 4-pack of on-disc songs, specifically:

Ubisoft is a multinational. For other game in the franchise, it does not seem that there is a primary market. For example "Assassin's creed "and "watch dogs" do not have a single main target countries.

You're comparing apples and orangutans. The content of those games is reasonably generic. How, for example, would you target AC to be US- or EU-specific? On the other hand, with a music game, do you really think it makes business sense to launch first in Belgium with some really cool local bands, then expand to Germany and France, and maybe the UK later, and crack the US market at in the future? Ubisoft is multinational because they know the markets, so it's centered where the money is.

Just to show that I care :) I did a thorough reading of the Wikipedia entry for 311. Turns out they named themselves for the police code, "311: Indecent Exposure" Apparently some to-do with one of the band members and optional clothing or some such. Anyway, has anybody heard of these guys? Oh, and what the heck is an "Oy" band??? Excuse me, gotta take an Advil now.

I'm hoping "Down" and "Love Song" are included, songs I recognized without knowing the name of the band and I think offering some nice melodies and rhythms to my taste. I also hope a nice example of a stronger Ska/Reggae bent is offered, as I've been missing that in RS for a long while.

LOL I was so excited about Mastodon, that I didn't notice they were also leaking 2 of the 311 songs. ;)

So, if someone is still doubting about 311, have a good look at this screenshot.

Thanks, Culo. As is always the case, it is nearly impossible to convey conversational nuances in internet forums, you'd think I'd have learned that after seeing and being part of misunderstandings on internet forums for the past 26 years.

You got me started on Moody Blues songs for RS. I've been a fan of theirs since 1970, have owned their records in every medium except reel-to-reel tape, and have seen them in concert 20+ times (+1 this August :) ). I'll limit the songs to the first 3 that come to mind;

I'm Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band)-- Mostly rhythm but some nice lead the 2nd half of the song. My daughter, the bassist, says it is a fun bass song:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_J-hmyAS6c

The Land of Make Believe--Quiet song, but to me, has the definitive Justin Hayward guitar sound that I have been pursuing for as long as I can recall. Gibson ES 355/Supa Fuzz pedal/Vox AC30.

311 formed in 1988 and has 11 studio albums. They constantly tour and the have had the same line up for years. I'm sorry you have never herd of them. 311 is underrated for some weird reason. 311 has hip-hop but thats because they were blending styles with rock/reggage/ska/punk/funk/folk and so on. Great music and its fun. Just because its not zeppelin doesn't mean its not good,

WOW. I'm not a super huge 311 fan by any means but I figured they would have to put amber in the pack. Pretty pumped for that since I really like that song even if it is easy to play. I'm assuming the other songs will be Down, All mixed up, and love song (yes a cover of a song that is already in the game)

Also super excited for the mastodon songs since I"m a pretty big fan of them. I would say that the 3 songs for DLC are really nothing like blood and thunder so even if you were turned off by that song these songs may still be ok. What's more awesome is that all of the songs are FULL of fun, memorable riffs. Probably the most I've been looking forward to a pack since Radiohead. Hopefully the note detection isn't broken. Also I was hoping maybe they would put The Last Baron in the pack.

I'm 37. Anybody within my age range +/- a few years would at the very least recognize 5 - 10 of their songs. They wouldn't know it was 311, nor know the name of the songs, but would recognize them (not necessarily like them). Their last 8 albums have debuted in the top 10. Yes, they immediately fall off. They are a marginal (now indie) band. They have a solid fan base, and that's about it. Folks who like them, love them. Not a lot outside of that. During the 90's they received moderate play on alternative/college radio. They also had a few videos that received moderate rotation on MTV, for those old enough to remember when MTV was relevant and played music. They dropped most of the hip-hop over the years (my wife cannot stand SA's rapping) but still have an element of ska. "Down" was the first song I learned to play when I bought an amp. 311 won't be everyone's thing (that's for certain), but some of you will be surprised at how catchy the songs are.

You must have missed it in the other thread where I asked this directly and Dan said they haven't had any artist come beating down their door for promotion. RapScallions still doesn't have a Wikipedia page, so I wonder why someone went out looking for their music if they weren't begging Ubisoft...

That's hard to know really. Maybe it isn't about money and more about control also for some artists. What's more is that Ubi probably doesn't want to make that huge of a gamble for a niche game, because if it doesn't work out it could really damage the company. What's more is that they would probably rather put the money into the next Assassins Creed game since it's probably their most popular game. So in a way they are doing what you suggest, just not in the way you want it.

Agreed. Others on here (toy) know more about this, but there is a lot going on behind the scenes you don't know about. Large companies, record labels, artists, developers, and whomever else are negotiating and coordinating with each other. There was a great podcast on Rock Band's website about how complicated it actually is (I looked through the archives and cannot figure out which episode so no link, apologies) to license this stuff. As extendedsolo mentioned, there is give and take in this as well. Likely amongst unrelated media.
And bazztard, it is unlikely that anybody is offering free music. You are correct in your assumption that large bands (Metallica, for example) cost more to license than smaller ones. As much as you or I may think they'll sell well, it may not be profitable enough to do.

No need to transpose, they could just add a couple new effects pedals in Rocksmith and we could play the mellotron on guitar.

1. They already have.

2. There have been several past threads where people pulled up the DLC sales/popularity numbers, and many of these bands we're complaining about rank quite high.

Don't forget that RS14 is a sequel. If the formula wasn't working, they'd have stopped after the first one. And, frankly, all this drop-tuned metal-ish stuff is what the players were screaming for in the first one.

I really don't mind ANY of the DLC.

Will I buy most of it? Nope! But, if it keeps RS2014 afloat, I am more than happy. Seeing the demise of BF, not that I really cared about BF...I want people to like and be excited about DLC.

I want RS to stay alive as long as possible...if I get 3 DLCs in a year that I am like OMG, I NEEEEEEEEEEED that now! I will be more than happy.

Everyone has different musical tastes...and if you hate 311...that's cool, a lot of ppl do...but a lot of people are going to buy it and if you like RS...THAT'S A GOOD THING!

Shoot, the music I like and want to learn via RS2014 on DLC...most people would scoff at.

Sorry, that was a rant fueled by naysayers that want to shout, "if I don't know it...or I don't like it...it's sh^t!!!"

I'll definetly get 311 & Mastodon when released

No hate here. I don't recognize any of the three Toy just posted. It doesn't mean I won't get them though. They'll fall into one of three categories.

1. Ones I know and already like or liked because of Rocksmith (I've purchased several songs just because of Rocksmith :) )
2. Ones I like to play but don't know who they are (either no idea, like Avenged Sevenfold or Mastodon)
3. Ones I don't much like, either too complicated for me right now or just can't seem to lock in on the rhythm (which means I'll continue to come back to them but not like 1 or 2; Pantera or the other metal one; sheep's deity or something).

Not here either; although it may have seemed so in the past few weeks. Maybe I shouldn't hide this in a mega-thread, but nor do I think it merits its own thread.

First, my apologies to all of those who have really liked and were excited when the bands forming the DLC of the past couple of months or so were announced. I know how happy I was when The Doors DLC was announced, and can only imagine how happy it would make me if one of my other favorite bands were ever to be tapped. So God bless ya, and rock on!

What I was expressing was a frustration with release after release of material that was of no interest to me, as if my niche was being forsaken. And each subsequent announcement made the frustration build, and enthusiasm for the game itself wane.. I never thought of myself as having a narrow taste in music. Of the 4000 or so songs currently on my iPod, the range is from Buddy Guy to Miranda Lambert to The Moody Blues to UFO to Carpenters to Black Sabbath to 25 different versions of Oh Holy Night to...After spending these past months on this board, I have to admit that I was wrong. There are entire genres of which I never heard, let alone bands that represent them. In each case, I always go to YouTube and give the new stuff a listen; invariably, I cannot imagine myself listening to them for free, let alone buying them and attempting to play them.

Someone in a much earlier thread said it best for me; sorry that I don't remember who and for the weak paraphrasing. I have played some songs on RS that I never heard of, and in fact, ended up enjoying. However, these were tunes that were already part of the game, so their "audition" to me was the game play itself. At my age and late start, all I am looking for from the game is to just get good enough to be able to play along with songs I like. Learning techniques along the way is a nice side benefit.

Of course, Ubisoft owes neither me nor my ilk anything; the are free to release content by any band of any genre they choose to. But I promise to keep my frustration in check as each DLC is announced, and let those who like what is being made available on RS revel in their happiness, Sorry for the rambling post. [/RantMode]

Sometimes, I Wonder when will be the next DLC that I like.

It is a win-win situation for me. When the DLC is more aligned with my generation (and sensibilities), I win.
When it is not, then there is money I don't feel obligated to spend and incentive to address some of the excellent songs that I haven't gotten to yet.

There is a sense of excitement with the former, and a sense of relief with the latter. But I do appreciate the attempt to spread out the DLC across generations and style. Yes, some decades get more love than others, but I would imagine that there are complexities in acquiring the rights that make it impossible to keep everyone happy.

I'm pretty sure people already understand this, but I feel the urge to state it: Every DLC pack is not going to be for every player. Sometimes we get into streaks in a certain genre or time period -- I know there was a run of 90s bands there for a while, and if that music just doesn't resonate with you, it's not going to be interesting. Alter Bridge doesn't sound like Spin Doctors which doesn't sound like Bob Dylan which doesn't sound like Garbage. The variety is inherent to what we are doing here.

When we put out DLC, it's an invitation -- not an expectation. I think of DLC offerings like a movie theater. There are a dozen screens, all showing different things. Most times, I am willing to pay to see one, maybe two of those films. I don't go to the movie theater and say "Why aren't these other 11 movies what I want to see?" I put my money where my interest is.

I always want to hear your reactions to the content, but some folks seem to take it personally when DLC does not appeal to them -- the tone becomes "this game has failed me" or "they have forgotten fans like me." And don't get me wrong -- you are the most important part of this equation. But it's a personal decision and music is a personal experience, and I get concerned when people seem to take a personal taste difference as a personal affront, as if a lack of content for one person's taste is somehow a reverse value judgement upon them. It's a slippery illogical slope and I strongly want to discourage people from seeing the situation that way.

So, if you're expecting sniper precision and we're taking the shotgun approach, that's a recipe for unhappiness; let's not even whip up a batch. Please accept that DLC will sometimes be of interest and sometimes not; it's actually designed to work that way, as we try to make hundreds of thousands of people happy. The only realistic way for that to happen for something as subjective as music is for everybody take turns.

good. now i know who to hold accountable. ;)

I agree wholeheartedly with your last post. I'm one of the people that will say "not for me" or "i don't like them BECAUSE" but overall, i am very accepting. I buy EVERY piece of DLC and don't think I've ever wasted my money. I love to play guitar and bass. RS and RS2014 gives me a continually growing arsenal of riffs, solos and songs to learn. $3 a song (at the most) is never a waste of my money... even if I only play the arrangements once.

aside from the Japanese DLC, I don't think RS/RS2014 DLC has "introduced" me to any artist. On-disc tracks, yeah... but DLC? they tend to be well known bands... even if only within their genres. I think the RS team has done a pretty great job picking DLC. Of course I wish they'd branch out even more (like, you know, to stuff i like) but I understand all of their choices (even Nickelback).

huh? ... all the requests are still in a raw and unsorted format? Seriously? Doesn't that suggest they've been mostly ignored for the last year? That's definitely my take on it.

I understand it's probably a time consuming thing, but the current Ubi methods seem like an incredibly inefficient process for receiving, studying and making decisions based on those submitted requests.

That being said, glad to hear that you're now on top of it Dan!

Nice! Send that sucker over here, I'll parse it, aggregate it. and of course drop all the entries for stuff I don't personally like!

Points to you guys - I think it's really tough to please more than a small portion of the crowd each go-round with DLC. You're not getting hammered over the DLC quality, but everyone's personal music selection - which becomes a bit of a religious discussion. Seriously, though... where's the Polka?.

Me, I'm in it for the learning. I'd buy a set of Nursery Rhymes DLC :-)

And... because everyone should wrap up a DLC related post by pimping their own favorite genres... more ROCK. Just good ole rock :-) Trying to keep up with sweeps and tapping is fun on occasion, but mostly I wanna pound out a power chord progression, cramp my neck muscles from headbanging and put my shoulder out doing Pete Townsend windmills :-)

he said it's of the last YEAR. That sounds like it's from May 2013 to April 2014. RS 2014 was announced at E3 on May 10th(ish, i just know that's when E3 started). So, assuming that is correct (and this excel report isn't from the last calendar year [Jan 2013-Dec 2013]). These will be the DLC requests placed SINCE RS1 DLC cycle ended. So everything up until now (and prob the next month or 2) is all requests from the PREVIOUS YEAR, for the previous game.

This is, obviously, a long process.

The more popular track is, the more people will be happy with it (and more money you'll get for dlc's). Sometimes I want to play something to my friends, but what I can play to them? Blackbird? Oh, I consider that it's not a song but rather an exercise for my fingers/memory. Out of about 150+ my songs I may want to play to others no more than 10...15.
It's okay to have different dlc's so everyone can find something interesting for him\her. But it is exactly the sniper approach you are against, while shotgun ammo are popular tracks.

P.S. It would be nice to have a new thread to discuss what Dan will find out in his excel file :)

05-05-2014, 08:38 PM
Absolutely--I'll bet it is a long process, and they'd be pretty stupid if they didn't also have a long-range plan for DLC upon release of the new game. My guess is that a) there was already a process, but it's been adjusted with Dan's hire, and b) it's time to start thinking about DLC beyond what's already locked, so the requests become more relevant.

Hey, man -- got you something:

http://ronniehiggins.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/tumblr_lon5josiZy1qzmr3jo1_500.jpg

:)

All I said was that I got a year's worth of data. That does not mean the team did not have this data before I got here; it's just that I am now taking responsibility for wrangling it, and I asked for anywhere between six months (since RS2014 came out) to a year, based on whatever was most efficient for the web tech team. That way, I can sort through this data my way and start looking at trends through my own lens.

There's no logical reason "I'm setting up shop" should be taken to mean "Nobody's minding the store." Don't leap to the worst possible outcome right away, okay?

The team got detailed reports leading up to where we are now, and the current DLC production calendar is built on a mix of those user requests, developer instinct, market research, musical knowledge, and some clever ideas from within the team.

Amen, brother. I just figure that if I REALLY, REALLY want to learn something, I'll take the initiative and find out another way to learn a song. I got pretty lucky since my bag is country and I found and AMAZING site to learn from, but if I was thinking "I HAVE to learn a Seether song TODAY!!!", I'd go find a book or some video tutorials or whatever I need to learn what I HAD to learn. Rocksmith is a TOOL. It shouldn't be your entire toolbox. At some point, you're going to have to step away from it a little if you're going to be serious about learning.

Quite seriously, by the time you're at Pantera/Iron Maiden/ Eric Johnson/Steve Vai level, you should be moving to learn in other ways. While Rocksmith is fun, you aren't going to be lugging a PC on stage with you and playing with a band while watching your TV screen.

Trust if a band has got to the point where they are a DLC pick they most definitely have a fan base to warrant said pack, even if it's not your cup of tea someone out there likes that stuff. It certainly is a bummer when a streak of bands that you don't like is released week after week, I know that feeling, it just makes it all that more special when your band gets the pick......that being said.....bring on Def Leppard! :D

I can always fall back on My Girl or a Maroon 5 song if those two fall flat. All the ladies love that Adam Levine character.

thanks Dan, any info on how songs get selected is always an eye opener.

Something I'd like to see is a short article on the life of a DLC song in Rocksmith.

From being requested or selected by the team, to gaining approval to artist agreeance to release. I'd really like to know a little more about the process and problems along the way, and the timeframe from go to whoa.

Any chance of such an article from you maybe? doesn't need to be too involved.

cheers

Seconded - I'd be really interested to learn about that too.

Actually, it is. Not a girl named Amber, but about Nicole Schlezinger (Pussycat Dolls lead singer). They were engaged at the time.
I'm such a nerd for knowing that.

Didn't Toy already post a link to an article about how songs get picked and licensed for these music games?

Pretty sure he did, you'll just have to search the forums for it.

I'm pretty sure people already understand this, but I feel the urge to state it: Every DLC pack is not going to be for every player. Sometimes we get into streaks in a certain genre or time period -- I know there was a run of 90s bands there for a while, and if that music just doesn't resonate with you, it's not going to be interesting. Alter Bridge doesn't sound like Spin Doctors which doesn't sound like Bob Dylan which doesn't sound like Garbage. The variety is inherent to what we are doing here.

When we put out DLC, it's an invitation -- not an expectation. I think of DLC offerings like a movie theater. There are a dozen screens, all showing different things. Most times, I am willing to pay to see one, maybe two of those films. I don't go to the movie theater and say "Why aren't these other 11 movies what I want to see?" I put my money where my interest is.

I always want to hear your reactions to the content, but some folks seem to take it personally when DLC does not appeal to them -- the tone becomes "this game has failed me" or "they have forgotten fans like me." And don't get me wrong -- you are the most important part of this equation. But it's a personal decision and music is a personal experience, and I get concerned when people seem to take a personal taste difference as a personal affront, as if a lack of content for one person's taste is somehow a reverse value judgement upon them. It's a slippery illogical slope and I strongly want to discourage people from seeing the situation that way.

So, if you're expecting sniper precision and we're taking the shotgun approach, that's a recipe for unhappiness; let's not even whip up a batch. Please accept that DLC will sometimes be of interest and sometimes not; it's actually designed to work that way, as we try to make hundreds of thousands of people happy. The only realistic way for that to happen for something as subjective as music is for everybody take turns.

I can agree to a certain level with this statement but the problem is that DLC lately is primarily made up of B-Movies which are cheap to license. Next to that, the demand for "more" famous bands is obviously there but it seems that it's being totally ignored.

I don't see myself as limited in my music choice. The 50 songs on the disc are a good variation of songs which I play (many of them I never heard of). However, when I buy DLC, so an extension to the original game it has to fit my taste. I listen to all the DLC when it comes out and I just keep thinking you went shopping in the cheap sales box at the local mediastore. Sure it's a personal opinion.

The game itself is great and I love spending my time with the songs offered and the few dlc's I have bought. I don't expect the DLC being my taste every week but the way it's going now my wallet stays firmly closed.

If we talk about the "popular" bands being in Rocksmith as DLC, we all know what we are talking about. Some may have licensing issues and other one's may be to expensive. However, as long as those request keep comming and comming there is obviously something not well enough communicated to the RS2014 fanbase!

If you have all those famous guitarplayers from the world to choose from, why you choose all kinds of songs from guitarplayers that are completely unknown? It's a guitar teaching tool and that for me should mean that there should be material from well know guitar players as well.

Next week DLC: Learn to play surfing with the Alien with Joe Satriani, include a few lessons with Satriani explaining in the videos and you will have an improvement and a real addition than just "another" song.

Above : It's just an example not a request!

I just think that in the DLC department there is a huge improvement possible if serious effort is put into it!

Meanwhile I keep focussing on my favorite songs to play :D

poor girl.

i'm sure you're a nice guy and all but, i couldn't imagine anyone's proposal story being "he played that 311 song that was a hit in 2001 with another girl's name as the title".

now, if you're g/f is named amber, go for it. otherwise, work on "she's so beautiful", "pretty woman" or "wonderful tonight". you know, something flattering.

Lol, spoken like someone who's never heard the song. :) Since "Amber" is about an inner quality, it could even feel personal for people who don't relate to words like 'pretty', or 'beautiful.'

I have not bought any new DLC for a while, but will snatch these up tonight. Such fun bass lines. Ill probably skip Amber though because I don't think I will ever play it.
