Rocksmith 2014 Edition and Rocksmith Remastered have continually delivered the goods in terms of ease of use, learning experience, and new content drops, with the latter coming along on a weekly basis to ensure there are always plenty of options available to rocking wannabes. Today that is again the case, with the arrival of yet another Blues themed song pack.

Having already provided plenty of access to numerous Blues tunes in the past, including the likes of Muddy Waters, Rocksmith players now have access to the Blues Song Pack III; with Freddie King and Shuggie Otis in place, it’s certainly a pack that will appeal to many.

The Rocksmith Blues Song Pack III will set you back £6.69 and includes the following tunes…

  • “Going Down” – Freddie King
  • “Bootie Cooler” by Shuggie Otis
  • “San Francisco” by John Lee Hooker

As always, each of the tracks listed above are also available to grab individually, with just a £2.49 price tag attached to each. Should you therefore wish to grab just the one track – possibly King’s “Going Down”, then you can do just that. That said, we’re very much of the mindset that nabbing full song packs is the way to go, and even though there are a plentiful amount of tunes, song packs, genres, bands, and artists available in the Rocksmith back catalogue, and taking each of those every week will soon rack up in cost which is where could well come in, If you’re a Blues fan, this should be an immediate purchase.

You will of course need a copy of Rocksmith 2014 Edition or Rocksmith Remastered to hand, but with the game present and correct on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4, chances are that is already a gimme. And if you don’t have it, checking out our full review to fully understand how and why Rocksmith is the fastest way to learn guitar, will quite possibly see you highly intrigued.

With the only real other musical options in gaming now coming about via the Rock Band series, Rocksmith certainly looks to do something utterly different, requesting you to make the most of, and utilise, proper instruments as opposed to those created specifically for a game. If you have a guitar sitting in the corner waiting for use, or a bass hanging from the wall for decorative purposes, grabbing either and heading into the deeply immersive world of Rocksmith should be the way to go.

If you are a fan of the tutoring experience and reckon this latest Blues content drop is right up your musical alley, let us know about it. Similarly though, if you’re still holding out for something entirely different, shout us. We’d love to hear your thoughts.
