*Tour Premiere

Notes:

–  “Maria’s Bed” was played for the first time since Seeger Session Tour.

– “In Dreams” is a Roy Orbison cover. Played partially, played instead of of sign request of “California Blue” (also a song by Roy Orbison).

– “In Dreams” is a song composed and sung by rock and roll performer Roy Orbison. An operatic ballad of lost love, it was released as a single on Monument Records in February 1963. It became the title track on the album In Dreams, released in July of the same year. The song has a unique structure in seven musical movements in which Orbison sings through two octaves, beyond the range of most rock and roll singers.

The song peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 charts at number 7, and charted in England for five months while Orbison toured sharing billing with The Beatles. It gained notability again in 1987 when Orbison released a re-recorded anthology of his greatest hits; the year prior David Lynch had used the song provocatively in his dark thriller Blue Velvet, helping to revive Orbison’s career. The theme of the song was interwoven in similar compositions throughout his tenure as a musician. As a result, several collections of Orbison’s music share the title of the song. Rolling Stone listed “In Dreams” at number 319 of their 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. (Read more)

Various video clips:

Notes:

– “My Hometown” was dedicated to JT McNamara.

– “This Little Light Of Mine” was played for the first time with E Street Band.

– “This Little Light of Mine” is a gospel children’s song written by composer and teacher Harry Dixon Loes (1895–1965) circa 1920. Loes, who studied at the Moody Bible Institute and the American Conservatory of Music, was a musical composer, and teacher, who wrote, and co-wrote, several other gospel songs. The song has since entered the folk tradition, first being collected by John Lomax in 1939. Often thought of as a Negro spiritual, it does not, however, appear in any collection of jubilee or plantation songs from the nineteenth century. (read more)

– “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” is a 1966 song and hit single by The Temptations for Motown Records’ Gordy label, produced by Norman Whitfield and written by Whitfield and Edward Holland, Jr. The song peaked at number 13 on the Billboard Pop Chart, and was a number-one hit on the Billboard R&B charts for eight non-consecutive weeks. The song’s success, in the wake of the relative underperformance of the previous Temptations single, “Get Ready”, resulted in Norman Whitfield replacing Smokey Robinson, producer of “Get Ready”, as The Temptations’ main producer.

– “Hearts Of Stone” was played for the first time in Springsteen concert.

Videogame with a real guitar? Rocksmith 2014 Edition coming this fall!

Easier way to learn the guitar – “Rocksmith 2014 Edition” coming this fall!

Rocksmith_2014_edition_

I have played the original Rocksmith game for hundreds of hours, and it’s really fun game to play, and I can’t wait for the Rocksmith 2014 edition.

There are two guitar games coming this fall. Rocksmith 2014, and BandFuse. I’m gonna buy both of them. :)

What this game have to do with Bruce Springsteen? Nothing much, but I’m sure there are other people like me, who want a more fun way to learn the guitar.

There’s not too much info shared about this game, but here’s what I have gathered so far:

Rocksmith 2014 Edition – Confirmed info:

“Rocksmith 2014 Edition is an upcoming sequel to the rhythm video game Rocksmith. It was announced at Ubisoft’s 2013 E3 presentation. The game will have a Session Mode, which enables players to perform in jam sessions with the in-game musicians. Other new modes include the Riff Repeater, which allows players to select specific parts of songs to practice, a Master Mode to enhance memory-playing, and new Guitarcade minigames. “Cherub Rock” by the Smashing Pumpkins will be a free DLC giveaway with pre-orders of the game.” – Wikipedia
– Session mode works with guitar or bass (not confirmed if they work at the same time)
– All the old Rocksmith downloads works with 2014 edition!
– Old Rocksmith Real Tone Cable works with 2014 edition too!
– over 50 new songs (DLC for over 150 songs)
– Faster, and cleaner compared to the old Rocksmith game
