Rocksmith's "Bachsmith" DLC Is A Classical Gas

Ubisoft goes back a few centuries to bring new rock version of some classical masterpieces to Rocksmith.

The Bachsmith DLC pack includes new guitar-oriented arrangements of five famous classic works: Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries," Beethovan's "Midnight Sonata," Bach's "'Little' Fugue in G Minor," Grieg's "In the Hall of the Mountain King," and Mozart's "Rondo Alla Turca."

You can watch the video below for a taste of the process that went into notetracking and creating these new arrangements. The Bachsmith DLC pack includes all five songs for $4.99 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Mac.

Ubisoft has also created Bachsmith playlists for Spotify and iTunes.

  • My favorite from Bach is still Toccata and Fugue, never heard this piece. Ride of the Valkyries has become a little cliché imo. I think the Tristan and Isolde prelude would have been a better choice. Then again if you're going for a rock combo I guess not.

  • I... Must... Buy... AH!

  • The majority of those pieces are either baroque or romantic, not classical. What is this "Midnight Sonata"?
  • Perfect idea for DLC for Rocksmith. This is definitely something I want to learn for guitar and bass.

  • I don't have Rocksmith, but I want to hear some of those songs.

  • I got this yesterday and they're a lot of fun. Moonlight Sonata is great, but my favorite to play of these is "Rondo Alla Turca".
  • I hope they bring Rocksmith to PS4 and Xbox One. I don't plan on holding onto my PS3 much longer, so i'd like to contine to learn how to my guitar on my new system.
  • This is so awesome.

  • Now that's just wonderful.

  • This is pretty. Never been a classical fan but I might give this a listen.
  • Great songs.

  • I want to point out that Savatage paired Rock and Classical music together back in the 80's and 90's. I love this idea though.
