Damn you! I couldn't resist either at that price. Plus, it's Hendrix man!


If anyone has any kids/beginner friendly guitar recommendations, please let us know. Off to the local family owned music store tomorrow...

Was always interested in this but the title alone (Rock) kinda gave me a clue that it wouldn't be my cup of tea. Are there any R&B, Jazz, Soul songs in this thing? I'm not into Rock music at all so that wouldn't do anything for me except for the fact they say a good musician should be able to play anything.

Not much. You can take a look at the song lists; note that there are three lists, one for the original RS, one for RS2014 and one for DLC. Use the genre filter, though I'd suggest that you sort by genre and scan through, genre being a little subjective.

It'd be cool if there were Bluessmith, Soulsmith, R&Bsmith, Jazzsmith, etc .

The game splits the song up into multiple sections and automatically levels up each section as you learn it. There's also lots of easier material than Hendrix in the on-disc selection of songs and in the other DLC.

If you're new to the game I suggest buying RS1 for 360 and porting the songs. If you buy the game for Xbox One you can port anything that you bought for Xbox 360 over to it, including the on-disc songs for RS1; I believe that it's the only way to get any of those songs on new gen machines. I think, however, that you need to install and run RS1 on 360 first. Check out those songs in the RS song list to see if you care about any of them.

I have the original Rocksmith for the 360. But I never bought any DLC. So there's nothing to port, correct? disc songs don't port, do they?

If you're new to the game I suggest buying RS1 for 360 and porting the songs; I think that a used copy will do. If you buy the game for Xbox One you can port anything that you bought for Xbox 360 over to it, including the on-disc songs for RS1; I believe that it's the only way to get any of those songs on new gen machines. I think, however, that you need to install and run RS1 on 360 first. Check out those songs in the RS song list to see if you care about any of them.

I have the original Rocksmith for 360. But I never purchased any DLC. Disc songs don't transfer to the One, do they?

Yes, they do (though it does sound as if you have to pay extra; I don't recall that from importing the RS1 disc songs into RS2014 for 360, but I'm probably just forgetting). From the Rocksmith 2014 Edition

I bought RS1 on the previous generation. Do I have to buy a copy of RS2014 for the previous generation as well to use the Import Tool, or can I just skip that version?

You can skip it. Your PSNID or Gamertag will show that you've played the original RS1 on the previous generation, and that's your validation for the server -- you'll then be able to buy the Import Tool as a transaction on PS4 or Xbox One, even if this version of RS2014 will be your first.

I really want to do this, but I'm not sure I can justify having it for 360, PC, and xb1. If they would just let me use the same library of dlc for all three versions, I'd be in for sure.
