Subsonic sounds

Budding musicians will get the opportunity to unleash their inner Les Claypool on 14th August, when Ubisoft adds bass to its PS3 training tool, Rocksmith. The $30 expansion promises to help beginner bassists to "improve their skills like 2-finger plucking, slapping, and popping with dedicated bass technique challenges, tutorial videos and mini-games”. Brilliantly, all of the title’s on-disc and DLC songs will automatically support the expansion.
