rocksmith easy exercises volume 1 xbox

Ever since the dawn of time – well, the release of Rocksmith – we’ve been treated to all manner of new tunes via the magic of downloadable content. Well, this week is a bit different in the land of Rocksmith and should you still be struggling to come to terms with what the guitar tutor is after, will discover the latest set of DLC a huge help. Yep, Rocksmith is found to be ditching the new songs this time around, in order to deliver us some Easy Exercises.

Rocksmith Easy Exercises, Volume 1 is available to purchase and download right now into both Rocksmith 2014 Edition and Rocksmith Remastered, giving further opportunity to allow the guitaring gamers the chance to really develop their skills.

Priced up at just £3.99/$4.99, the Easy Exercises Volume 1 is, as the name suggests, just the first of some planned content which moves Rocksmith and its players away from the barrage of tunes that have hit the game over the years, to instead ensure that the base skills in place will allow us to really nail the rifts of future and past content.

To do this the Rocksmith gods have collated five exercises which are playable on both guitar and bass, pushing the likes of Linear Playing, String Skipping and more to players. This includes:

  • Linear Playing
  • Hammer-ons
  • String Switching
  • Pull-Offs
  • String Skipping

Further tutorials and exercises are promised a little bit down the line, and whilst this is Volume 1 of the Easy Exercises, I guess that means more of those will be arriving at some point in time. Further to that though, and if you feel these classes are too simple, both intermediate and advanced sessions are promised. 

To get involved in the Rocksmith Easy Exercises Volume 1 on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 or PS4 then head to your local digital store and nab the pack. It’s available from both the Xbox Store or the PlayStation Store dependant on your preferences and will be found sitting pretty alongside a whole host of previous DLC packs that have more than delivered the goods over the years.

Is this latest DLC addition something you wish to see more of in Rocksmith, or do you prefer the opportunity to hammer out new tunes from a variety of bands?
