    Staind pack seems a little slow going up on Steam tonight.

    Only one song has shown up, and It's Been Awhile........ since that song appeared.

    So Far Away is definitely not a song I expected to see in this pack. I was hoping more for Mudshovel or A Flat. Outside is far from a favorite of mine (it was played to death when it first came out), and I prefer the live version to the studio, but I'll take it. I'm getting the pack despite. Rather disappointing overall, but not disappointing enough to keep me from picking it up.

    I'm interested to see how the alternate tuning gimmick plays. I was confused reading the explanation with the survey, so I'm willing to check it out. I appreciate you guys keeping the original tunings as well.

    I'm hopeful that this opens the door for the more popular bands to wander on into the Rocksmith catalog...
