Thursday Throwback DLC Pick: Eric Johnson – “Camel’s Night Out”

Welcome back to our weekly feature, Thursday Throwback DLC! Each week we feature a song from the Guitar Hero DLC catalogue that we feel deserves a second (or first) look.

Let’s go back to a time when getting one solitary song from Guitar Hero DLC wasn’t a shock to anyone. However when Eric Johnson’s 5:25 minute tasty solo filled song “Camel’s Night Out” came to Guitar Hero World Tour very few people complained.

The song (in my opinion at least) is a great sequel to Cliffs of Dover (Guitar Hero III) for Guitar Hero, of course the fact it’s a master track and not a cover doesn’t hurt either.


The song is filled with tasteful shredding on guitar done through mostly descending scales until the end when it gives you a pattern that will break most players combos.


Lot’s of variety here. It’s a definitely a solid bass line that sounds great and provides lot’s of movement combined with open notes both regular and hammer-on.


Probably one of the most fun drum charts ever- while most of it focuses on snare and cymbal patterns there are a lot of drum fills scattered about and the outro drum solo will show you why this song has very few FCs.


Sorry folks this one is an instrumental!

    I think that Guitar Hero needs a lot more songs like this. I feel that most virtuous guitar players excluding Yngwie Malmsteen, are really fun to play. Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, Steve Vai, and Paul Gilbert all have really good songs that would be excellent for Guitar Hero.
