Interesting... Boss is also the only bass arrangement unlocked for me too. I did not pay attention, but it was probably unlocked with my only bass double encore I got.

yeah, that happens unless you do this ", get to the screen that has arrangement select,"

if you had it unlocked before, it shows up from the get go. they are all supposed to. they don't and that's the problem. All except SSB. And you can't re unlock them in bass if you had them unlocked in guitar before. Hope they get it fixed. i was looking forward to playing some of those bass lines.

I just did a double encore with bass, and got no new song unlocked.
I have them all unlocked under guitar.
Yep, as the others have stated, all of them except Boss are locked.

If I go to the other songs in the guitar journey and switch to bass it shows the locked icon. (I didn't try them all, just a couple, but I assume I'd get the same thing on the others.)
ok, here's an interesting addition to this... mystery.
i decided to start a completely new game save today because i wanted to unlock the bass head achievement and have been unsuccessful in three attempts so far. while the story for unlocking that achievement is a completely different one, it had something to do with unlocking a bonus song.
so i went and played the game from scratch. this meant i had to set up my guitar on the guitar part first (soundcheck, tuning, volume, your first riff) and after doing that, i immediately switched to bass (emulated). i rehearsed the first two songs, performed them and got over 70k on both of them, prompting an encore. got over 100k on that one prompting a double encore. got 98k with that and then i unlocked the bass head achievement (you have to download the tone saver dlc, btw, for those interested in unlocking it - hey! i'm no flea and i don't expect to 70k higher ground anytime soon!). as for the unlocked bonus song...
Ricochet by Brian Adam McCune!
my guess is, the first (and only) bonus song you can unlock on the bass part is a completely random pick out of the 5 bonus songs with bass arrangements on them. after that, the remaining four - even if you manage to prompt double encores on your subsequent events - will remain locked.
now, since i've decided to make a new save file, i'll try experimenting again back on the guitar side of things to see if this affects unlocking bonus songs for guitar arrangements, too, for the sake of new rocksmith players who bought a copy of the game with the on-disc bass dlc version. (though that can be a pain! argh!)
hope that helps.

I am having the same issue others are having. I have all songs unlocked for guitar. Boss is only bonus song available in Bass mode. No songs unlocked when I got a double encore on my first event. I am playing the Best Buy version of the game on the PS3. I have everything except a few authentic tones unlocked on the guitar. I was experiencing lockups playing events till the patch came out.
continuing with my experiment into this problem, i decided to continue with my journey on both bass and guitar and see if these hidden songs continue to be unlocked for both guitar and bass everytime i perform double encores.

cool. two hidden songs unlocked so far. i then switched back to my bass journey. performed the next event, played another double encore and this time, i unlocked...
Six AM Salvation - Versus Them. bass arrangement unlocked. guitar arrangement unlocked.
a total of three unlocked hidden songs.
i, therefore, have to correct a certain part of my previous post above...
...since in this case two more were unlocked. i could go on playing double encores to further prove what i have discovered, but i guess it's safe to conclude that with new save files, any hidden song unlocked either through the guitar or bass journeys will result in being unlocked in that song's respective counterpart instrument arrangement, with the exception of star-spangled banner. of course, it would be interesting to see if i continue unlocking hidden songs using the bass journey and see if a bass double encore will still unlock a bass-less song such as star-spangled banner for guitar.
