Your dream DLC tracks?
What would your Dream DLC songs be? For me, it'd be Dream Theater's Pull Me Under, Metropolis Pt 1, Learning to Live and Home.

Along with Rainbow's Man on a Silver Mountain, Starstruck and Stargazer and Black Sabbath's Heaven & Hell, The Mob Rules and Turn Up the Night.

There's a lot of other songs I'd buy too, but those are tracks that I'd buy in an instant.

As a very recent, but ENORMOUS fan, I want Steam Powered Giraffe on here. If anyone here hasn't heard them, please check them out, especially if you're a fan of steampunk. They're fantastic, and original. I'm gonna list off a 5-pack of what I'd love to have:

- Automatonic Electronic Harmonics
- Me and My Baby (Saturday Night)
- Brass Goggles
- Honeybee
- Steamboat Shenanigans

The only catch is most songs feature an acoustic/steel guitar (though there is usually an electric guitar too), but since I play bass, it won't affect me. :P

As a fellow bassplayer with Rocksmith, would you mind if I added you to discuss bass? :P I'm incredibly new to bass.

Well, unfortunately I'm also quite new. I bought an old Epiphone bass about fifteen years ago, plucked away at it for a few months, then lost interest, and then actually "lost" the bass for about a decade.

I found it again, it broke, then I bought a brand new Ibanez about two months ago, so I'm pretty much starting over, hehe. Currently I'm learning with the Stu Hamm "Bass Basics" program from TrueFire.com, and playing Rocksmith. :P

Would you recommend following Stu Hamm's 'Bassic Basics' program on Truefire? I've literally just got my bass today and I'm buying Rocksmith as it's on sale in anticipation (though I was planning on buying it regardless) and picking up a cable tomorrow.

Yeah, I actually think he's a solid teacher, and totally walks you through all the basics. I knew it was worth it because he's the first guy that's actually walked me through every note on every string (up to the first octave, which is enough), so now I feel like I can actually learn what NOTES I'm playing as I continue learning.

Also, if you buy the program and download it, you get a built-in adjustable metronome, charts and tabs, and a tuner that plays the note so you can learn to tune by ear (this method is also one of the things he teaches, though I had a bit of a hard time hearing the tuning on this one).

It's only $20, so I totally recommend it. It's two CD's worth, many hours worth of lessons, especially if you actually sit and work on each lesson, instead of blowing through them once you get the basic understanding. I don't even think I'm halfway through the first CD and I've practiced over about 6 evenings with it.

How can a band be steampunk? lol.
I dont think I've ever heard of steampunk as a music genre.

That's good to hear. I'll be checking it out. I really am looking forward to learning bass. I did play some guitar in the past (I learnt a couple of songs with the help of my brother) but nothing serious.

By the way, I added you to friends. :)

I swear I'm going to sound like one of their agents or something, but:

SPG is a 5-man group, with the three main "characters" playing as robots, with full makeup. The two brothers who play "The Spine" and "Rabbit" are schooled in pantomime, so they are VERY good at moving like robots and speaking like them. They got their start by street-busking in San Diego, and now they're playing shows like the Steampunk Symposium, or "Spring in Sepia".

Each character has a backstory that talks about what the robots are made of, what they were originally made FOR (before turning to music), and when they were built (all in the 1850s).

The songs they play are quite old west/victorian in style (though they do have a very good mix of songs), using instruments like the mandolin, banjo, melodica, and accordion along with the standard bass/guitar/drums. If you want a few songs that talk about steampunk-style events or characters, here's a good list:
- Clockwork Vaudeville
- Automatonic Electronic Harmonics
- Rex Marksley
- Airheart
- Brass Goggles

Really, check em out. Incredibly talented group of kids. www.steampoweredgiraffe.com

I would like some Metallica (their version of Whisker in the Jar is a good start IMO and any Smiths (for the bass lines)

I'd really love to see some more Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Under The Bridge would be my number one choice, but I'd also be really happy to see just about any song from the Californication and By The Way albums.

I Second The Rainbow/Sabbath songs, but would kill for Dio's "Along Came a Spider" and "Better In The Dark". both have awesome guitar solos and heavy Base Guitar as well.

Albert King, Blues Power. From the "Live Wire/Blues Power" album... 10 min version.
Jimi Hendrix, Red House. From the "Live at Winterland" album.
Jeff Healey, Blue Jean Blues. From the "See the Light" album.
