One of the nice things about playing guitar is that you can play with your family.

It would be kind of nice to have some christmas songs inside Rocksmith to help me get ready for the holidays.

Perhaps not the normal hard core market, but licensing shouldn't be too much of an issue http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think that is a good idea.

Please no. Xmas music makes me want to punch snowmen. Hopefully Ubisoft will focus their resources elsewhere.

I haven't heard that. I'll have to check it out. stuff like that or, like I said in an earlier post, some Trans Siberian Orchestra would be great.

Trans Siberian Orchestra version or
Gary Hoey - Ho HO Hoey

Actually, I can get behind this a bit.
Jingle Bells, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph, Silver Bells, etc. Songs without a strong religious bent so almost anyone -especially kids- can enjoy them.

On a related note, songs like The Star Spangled Banner, Happy Birthday, etc. should probably be in every musician's repetiore and they are in the Public Domain I imagine.

Sandler's Turkey Song or Hanukkah Song seem pretty easy. Not sure about licensing though.

TSO & Gary Hoey would be pretty cool...

Surprisingly, "Happy Birthday" is not in the public domain.

Wow. I just looked that up. Very disturbing, especially when "Good Morning To All" IS in the PD and it is the SAME song...

It looks like "For He's A Jolly Good Fellow" & "Auld Lang Syne", "Good Morning To All" would be OK.
Just throwing out ideas.

I'll be the first to admit these aren't the coolest rockin', thrashin' songs of teh metal godz but it would be a reasonably less expensive way to provide more DLC.

Holiday-wise, how about Alice's Restaurant for Thanksgiving? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Guitar World put out a Christmas song DVD in the last couple of years with these songs:

Silent Night
Oh Come All Ye Faithful
Deck the Hall
Jingle Bells
The First Noel
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
Jingle Bell Rock
Auld Lang Syne

Each song has three different versions and it comes with a tab book. I think they sell this for like $10 on guitarworld.com so if there is no Christmas music on RS for the holidays you can check that out. It is a great DVD.

Are the Guitarworld DVDs easy to learn from?
I am a mediocre guitarist at best.
The cool thing about Rocksmith is that it makes practing more fun, obviously.

I have a lot of guitar DVDs & books but they rarely seem to hold my interest long enough to really learn any songs from them.

That came to mind when I mentioned Sandler's Turkey Song but I think it is about 4 hours long, right? ;-)

The SO will not approve of me playing Rocksmith that long. LOL

I think the guitar world DVD has three versions of each song to represent easy, chord, and advanced (combo) versions the way Rocksmith kind of does it. They play the riffs slow for you as well so you can see what is going on.
