You get 4 classical songs and every other song is $4 each. Blind robbery, do not purchase, buy the game on any other platform if you're really interested in it, it comes with a large selection of songs.

Edit: In response to Ubisoft, yes this is a free game; but for example the steam version costs $43 and you get 50 songs plus the game. This version is free but to get 50 songs you would have to shell out $140 at $2.99 a song. Anyone would be better served by getting this on PC, PS4, Xbox One, or Xbox 360 and avoiding this poorly implemented rip off at all cost.

Developer Response

We’re adding more songs to the library every week – we plan to offer a wide selection of artists and genres here too! Also, please keep in mind that this is a free app, but the other versions of Rocksmith that come with a large library of songs are not free downloads. So while you do start with more music, you’re also paying more at the start.

Edit: As of version 0.95.0, we're testing different pricing for DLC. These prices may fluctuate during the soft launch, but the core app will remain free (including the four free songs). We welcome your feedback.

Dynamic difficulty driving me nuts.....


Jamming along at 50%, miss some solo notes, then have to pause to manually crank the slider back up when it drops down to 7. Can’t find a menu option to disable this and it does it in the repeater too. 5 stars to figure this out.

Developer Response

Hey, Jaylenko! For now, if you play the full song while in Riff Repeater, you can toggle off the 'Level Up' switch to keep the levels where you want them. The team has been made aware of your feedback regarding this feature. EDIT Feb. 13: We have just released an update that allows users to further customize or fully disable the dynamic difficulty system. Let us know what you think!
