A free update for Guitar Hero III is now available to download on Xbox Live.

Its 72MB and gives you original compositions by hairy guitarist Slash and Tom Morello, as well as cover track Devil Went Down to Georgia as made famous by The Charlie Daniels Band.

Worth pointing out that this is already in the game, but now you can get it without thrashing your way to the necessary bit of the single-player mode.

This is all theoretical for us Europeans, naturally, as GH3 is not actually out here until next Friday. However, the US already has two downloadable song packs from Velvet Revolver and the Foo Fighters, and if you are unsure about either you can watch new trailers for them on Marketplace to make your mind up.

Slash is in Velvet Revolver, though, and they were awesome at Live 8. He is awesome in general. Lovely leather trousers and hair.

Go and read our Guitar Hero III review and get excited. Best yet.
