    This FAQ was written specifically for those who are playing Harmonix's Guitar
    Hero without a Guitar Controller handy. It includes hints for completing each
    individual track at "Hard" difficulty, including the Bonus Tracks that you can
    unlock at the in-game shop. Below you will also find general tips and tricks on
    becoming a better Guitar Hero DualShock player overall. I'm unaware of how
    effective these tips will be if applied to the Guitar Controller, or a real
    guitar, as the FAQ was written with only DualShockers in mind (unless your
    guitar has an X button).
    
    Also, I'm a MySpace loser (sue me you prick) and you can find my profile at:

    !UPDATE!---------------------------------------------------------------!UPDATE!
    
    I put this here because I can't think of anywhere else to put this. I changed
    the way my e-mail address is written in this FAQ because my account has been
    spammed to death as a result of my rock god status and immense popularity on
    GameFAQs. I forgive them for their sin against me because it's just a sign that
    I am an incredible success, completely without compare in the world of games.
    With that aside, I hope all readers (including the spammers) will continue to
    enjoy this FAQ as they would a slice of lightly-toasted wheat bread: with a
    glassful of repentance.

    HOW to NAVIGATE THROUGH THIS FAQ:
    
    The FAQ is split into several sections and subsections. 
                      "__"
    When you see this: ŻŻ
    
                       That means it is the first of whole intervals
                                                     (Sections 1.0,2.0, 3.0, etc.)
    
    When you see this:"--"
    
                       That means it is the one of the sub-sections
                                           (Sub-Sections 1.1, 1.2, 2.1, 2.2, etc.)
    
    When you see this:"++"
    
                       That means it is a sub-sub-section, instead of numbers
                       they are merely letters.
                                   (Sub-Sub-Sections 3.3a, 4.2b, 4.2c, 4.2d, etc.)
    
    When you see this:"~~"
                       It is merely a separator to split two different subjects
                       that fall under a single section.
    
    
    If you wish to skip some sections, press CTRL+F to bring up the Find bar.
    Write the section number you want to skip to and press ENTER.

    >> (1.1) INTRODUCTION
    
    Alright geniuses. If you've searched for my Unreal Tournament 2004 FAQ on
    GameFAQs then you may have seen me before. I wrote the greatest FAQ on Earth,
    and if you've read it you've probably printed it out and made a shrine for it
    by now. Well, get ready to make another 'cos I is back with a Guitar Hero FAQ.
    
    If you're wondering why someone wouldn't have the Guitar Controller SG if they
    bought Guitar Hero. Here's why............
    
    Also, this is a continuation of my life story, found in the Team Fortress Class
    Guide I made a few months back.
    
                                         ~~
    
    We begin this tale with my purchase of Guitar Hero. Here's how it went:
    
               I went to the store, shelled out $60, and got me a game
                  with a ridiculously huge box (it's Guitar Hero).
    
    Then I waited at the bus-stop for the midnight express bus to pass by. After a
    few hours, I realized that there was no midnight express, I'd just seen that
    in a movie. Also, it was like 4PM in the afternoon. So I walked the twenty plus
    miles home.
    
    I finally got home a good half-hour later (I walk fast -- maybe I was wearing
    rollerblades) when I was suddenly ambushed by ninja trolls at my front door.
    Now, I'm a well trained fighter, blackbelt in AssKickate (that's a martial art)
    so I managed to beat a few up bare fisted (and completely naked, cos that's how
    I fight). There were too many for me to take on by myself, so I pulled out the
    Guitar Hero case and pulled out the guitar.
    
    I started rocking like mad, and the trolls suddenly started dropping like
    flies around me. When they were gone, I was butt-naked and sweating. Suddenly,
    it started raining and the camera zoomed up on my face. I was all panting and
    stuff, looking totally badass. And then I turned around, opened the door and
    the camera zoomed out. At the *exact* moment I closed the door behind me they
    all exploded together and my theme music ("Iron Man") started playing. Then I
    said, very quietly, almost a whisper:
    
                                 "When will it end?"
    
    So I strutted, very manly-like, to the Playstation 2 and I popped the Guitar
    Hero disc in and plugged the SG in, only to discover, to my absolute horror,
    that my combat companion had been mortally wounded in the battle. The ninja
    trolls had all died, but they cast some weird mantra curse on the guitar. So
    as I sat there, mourning my dying friend, I heard him whisper:
    
                 "Apollyon, let's rock one more time. For the children."
    
    And I said:
    
                   "Yeah. Those kids we saw on TV. With hepatitis B."
    
    So, despite my tears (which were flowing *inwards* because I'm so manly and
    don't want people seeing my true emotions), I picked him up one more time and
    rocked the ultimate rock. I ended it all with the most *supreme* power chord
    in history, successfully destroying my neighbor's dog's eardrums (I could hear
    them pop from my house).
    
    He fell apart in my hands, a smile on his face.
    
                        "NoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOo!!!!!!"
    
    Then Santana burst through my door and started playing some totally sad stuff.
    He was so into the music he didn't even care I was nekkid. And then the camera
    circled around from my back to come to a stop in front of me and you could see
    I was totally sad, but determined. Like, I was gonna get those ninja trolls
    back.
    
                                          ~~
    
    And that's how I came to write this FAQ. All of it is true, though some of it
    isn't. I mean, I vaguely remember buying it. Though that could have been my
    roomate. Anyways, I know that somewhere up in heaven, Gary the Guitar is
    rockin' the panties off Mother Theresa and Mary. Rock on little buddy... rock
    on.

    >> (1.2) GAME BACKGROUND
    
    Guitar Hero is one in a line of Harmonix music games. Following the releases of
    Frequency and Amplitude, Guitar Hero puts the player in the boots of the
    guitarist in a rising cover band. By playing covers of some of the world's most
    beloved rock bands, the game chronicles your inevitable rise to becoming a rock
    god. Featuring accurate covers of some of the most influential rock bands of
    the 20th century, Guitar Hero boasts a tracklist of 45+ songs from both famous
    and indie groups.

    >> (1.3) CREDITS
    
    Great thanks to myself, of course, for writing this spectacular FAQ which has
    brought peace and love to my brothers and sisters around the world. Make music
    not war, my friends. Also, big thanks to In Flames' "Reroute to Remain" album,
    which I'm still listening to more than four years after its release. I think
    it's my official FAQ-writing album so if you wanna know my secret, I just said
    it. If you don't, I suggest not reading that last part.
    
    This FAQ was written in Metapad, a Microsoft Notepad replacement, which can
    be found at:
    
    http://liquidninja.com/metapad/
    
    Thanks go out to Jörg Seyfferth for his outstanding ASCII Art generator, which
    can be found at:
    
    http://www.network-science.de/ascii/
    
    Here is a list of contributors that rock:
    
    o  IrenicApollyon
       That guy's great.
    
    o  Stephen Kness
       Corrected the band that I had written for "Frankenstein". It's Edgar Winters
       Group, not The Blue Oyster Cult.
    
    o  Justin Shivers
       For filling in some of the missing band names.
    
    o  VivalaZim
       For correcting the "I Love Rock 'N' Roll" band name. It's Joan Jett and the
       Blackhearts, not the Heartbreakers.
    
    o  ScoreHero (http://www.scorehero.com)
       For all the Star Power cutoffs. I grabbed these without asking permission so
       if any ScoreHero mods want me to remove them you can drop me an e-mail at the
       address below.
    
    o  Paul Dog
       For correcting the acting Ozzy guitarist's name for "Bark at the Moon". It's
       Jake Lee, not Zakk Wylde.
    
    o  XtremeMatt30
       For the list of matching Guitar Heroes, guitars, and guitar skins taken from
       the characters' descriptions; something nobody else in the entire world
       wanted to do (see section 5.4)
    
    o  Allah SWT
       Where the hell would I be without you?
    
    Thanks to you, the reader, I guess. Even though you didn't do anything. But

    Alright, here's what I want you all to do before we get started. Go out to the
    drugstore and buy some tissue paper and diapers (for you) and a big crate of
    purple grapes (for me). Now do the following:
    
    o  Give me the grapes.
    
    o  Put on the diapers and put some tissue paper up your nose.
    
    o  Take a picture of yourself, and send it to me at:

    Now that's out of the way, we can begin. Oh yeah, if you still have a
    functional Guitar Controller at home, break it. *Now* you're ready.
    
                                     Moving on.

    This section is gonna freakin' be awesome. I'll teach you how to play. I'll
    teach you how to use the whammy bar. I hope you didn't fill up on cookies and
    crackers at snack time, because this FAQ is the equivalent of a meter-long
    sausage down your throat.
    
                                 That's a lotta weiner.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    >> (3.1) CONTROLS
    
    Now get ready to prepare to rock. Here's the part you should be reading if you
    haven't learned to play yet (which makes sense since you're a buttmunch).
    
    If you've played other Harmonix rhythm games before (Frequency, Amplitude)
    you're probably used to the control scheme used in this game. It uses the
    shoulder keys, dude. But don't let previous experience give you a bigger head
    because this one uses a freakin' *five* notes. What this means, for all you
    preschool dropouts, is that you'll use all four shoulder buttons *plus* the
    X-button. Yeah, I know, confusing.
    
    Get ready for a lot of practice. In fact, put on some Pampers right now because
    rock stars don't take bathroom breaks.
    
         Ozzy hasn't been in a bathroom since he got kicked out of Sabbath.

    Ok, drink up your juice and finish up those crackers. It's time for *extreme*
    tips and tricks.

    >> (3.2) TIPS & TRICKS
    
    Well look at me, I'm like the old rockstar sage teaching little grasshoppers
    how to play guitar. You start off all humbled because, despite your obvious
    potential, I am still able to rock the panties off of more women than you. But
    eventually, after a couple of scenes where you're training at the beach,
    practicing in front of a sunset, and scaling a mountain wall, you come back and
    defeat me with a vengeance. Then, when it's all done I say:
    
                            "*Now* you are ready grasshopper."
    
    Then we go off to rock the panties off the guy who stole your girlfriend
    earlier on in the movie. When the guy is beat and bleeding in a ditch, the girl
    comes up to you and she's all like:
    
                  "Oh my god. I just remembered. It's *you* I love."
    
    Then you say:
    
                                "No, music is my maiden."
    
    Then the camera pans to me, and I'm smiling and nodding. Not saying anything
    but looking totally awesome. Cue fade out.

    o  This is purely personal preference, but I like to play the GREEN and RED
       notes with the *tips* of my left hand's pointer and middle fingers. The
       YELLOW and BLUE notes I tend to play around the first joint of my right
       hand's pointer and middle fingers. X I play near my right thumb's joint.
    
    o  If you have some experience with previous Harmonix titles (Frequency or
       Amplitude) then I suggest starting Career Mode on Hard mode. This is because
       X-button is what will give you the most trouble and you can't practice with
       X on the lower difficulties. You'll know you've mastered X when you feel its
       position has changed from *below* R2 to be at *the right of* R2 (note: this
       is purely at a mental level, don't expect it to physically *move*) during a
       mad solo.
    
    o  Wiggle the whammy bar when playing STAR NOTES that are held for a period of
       time (STAR NOTES are what I call those star-shaped notes that fill up your
       Star Power Gauge) to fill the Star Power gauge faster.

       Remember, L3 is the whammy bar, and you wiggle up and down. Not left to
       right. I hate the whammy bar because I'm a rock purist and the whammy bar's
       vibratto effect tends to ruin the track.
    
    o  Don't just use Star Power whenever possible. Save it up for a particularly
       juicy solo, a series of chords, or a really hard part. This ensures the
       highest possible points. Or if you can't get past a part, Star Power will
       keep you in the green long enough to pass it by.
    
    o  Hammer ons, a technique used by guitar players to crank out a really fast
       change of notes, can be done on the DualShock. However, I've found that it
       does more to hurt you than help. Same for hammer offs.
    
    o  A series of chords can seem more menacing than it is. When you know a few
       chords are coming up, look ahead. Here's an example:
    
                                        X | X | |
                                        X | | X |               X - Notes Played
                                        X | | | X               | - Not Played
                                        X | X | |               / - Held Note
                                        X | | X |               * - Star Note
                                        ---------
                                        G R Y B O
    
       In the case above, the only note that remains the same is GREEN. To do this,
       hold GREEN and press the changing notes as they come down (B, Y, O, B, Y).
       You should be playing it like this.
    
                                        / | X | |
                                        / | | X |               X - Notes Played
                                        / | | | X               | - Not Played
                                        / | X | |               / - Held Note
                                        X | | X |               * - Star Note
                                        ---------
                                        G R Y B O
    
    o  In songs like "Crossroads" where you'll be hitting a stream of chords as
       well as solitary notes, you may be overwhelmed. Here's an example:
    
                                        X | X | |
                                        X | | | |               X - Notes Played
                                        X | X | |               | - Not Played
                                        X | | | |               / - Held Note
                                        X | X | |               * - Star Note
                                        ---------
                                        G R Y B O
    
       In this case you would do the exact opposite as the tip above, and hold
       YELLOW while hitting GREEN.
    
                                        X | / | |
                                        X | / | |               X - Notes Played
                                        X | / | |               | - Not Played
                                        X | / | |               / - Held Note
                                        X | X | |               * - Star Note
                                        ---------
                                        G R Y B O
    
    
    o  An issue that comes up when playing with the DualShock happens during held
       notes. When a held note is immediately followed by itself (like in "No One
       Knows" chorus), then making it sound right is almost impossible if you try
       and time it correctly. Instead, hold the note just a split-second too late
       and *then* press the notes. The game gives you a pretty wide margin for
       timing errors, so you can use this technique to maximize your points.

    I LOVE ROCK 'N' ROLL
    as made famous by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
    
    *UPDATE
    Thanks to Justin Shiver and VivalaZim for the band name here
    
    This song is pretty simple to get down, and rightfully should be considering
    it's the first track in the game. Here's how to maximize your points using Star
    Power:
    
    o  Grab the first Star Note and the second Star Note and hold it, use the 
       Whammy Bar
    
    o  Use your Star Power around the point where the pause ends, it should last you
       up to the next set of Star Notes.
    
    o  Pick up the next two sets of Star Notes and use them *immediately*, this
       should pull you through to the next set of Star Notes.
    
    o  During five, use the Whammy Bar until your Star Power is filled about half
       way and use it on the note after the pause.
    
    o  Pick up the next three sets of Star Notes and use the Whammy on the last note
       fill your Star gauge to nearly full capacity. In the middle of the long held
       note there, use the Star Power so that it runs out in time for the next Star
       Notes.
    
    o  Pick up the next two sets of Star Notes and activate them on the set of
       chords towards the song's ending.
    
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Easy opening                              - 73,593
      - Chord-filled chorus
      - Save Star Power for the chorus
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    I WANNA BE SEDATED
    as made famous by The Ramones
    
    This one is actually really freakin' easy on the SG but is a finger destroyer
    on the DualShock. You don't have the luxury of simply strumming up-and-down
    here, genius. You've gotta press those repetetive notes over and over again
    until the song's done, which is somewhere around four minutes.
    
    o  Grab the first three Star Notes, this should fill up your bar. After the
       third set of Star Notes, wait until you get to the second series of RB
       chords and activate Star Power.
    
    o  Grab the following three Star Notes. Activate it at the next series of RY
       chords. This will last you throughout the chorus.
    
    o  Take the next two Star Notes. At the chorus, wait until the third set of
       YB chords to activate.
    
    o  Finish up the song by grabbing the last three Star Notes. Activate Star
       Power at the very long BO chord. This should last until the song's end.
    
    Needless to say, all the held notes should be whammied.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Surprisingly difficult                    - 162,210
      - Ridiculously crappy solo
      - Use Star Power during any of the 
        chords

    THUNDER KISS '65
    as made famous by White Zombie
    
    Here's one to really get you... bored. Just keep your head up through this
    song so that you can move on to the next. The song *is* nice and repetitive so
    it makes a very good warm-up/practice track. Watch out for the chords, however,
    as you won't be too adept with chords at this point. The main trouble in this
    song will be the chord changing. Chord changing is a technique that is pretty
    difficult to master since it requires the releasing and dropping of two fingers
    from one chord to another simultaneously. I command you keep at it.
    
    o  Pick up the first two Star Notes. Activate Star Power on the 11th note
       following the second set of Star Notes.
    
    o  Grab the next two sets of Star Notes. After the last held note of the second
       set of Star Notes, immediately use Star Power.
    
    o  Pick up the following two sets of Star Notes. Instead of picking up the third
       Star Note (the GY chord), use Star Power there. This should pull you through
       to the next set of Star Notes.
    
    o  Pick up the only Star Notes here and hold them. After the long solo, use Star
       Power when the primary melody kicks back in (G G GG GG G GG).
    
    o  Pick up the last remaining Star Notes. Wait until the switching held YB and
       RY chords. Activate Star Power on the third set of RY chords.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Nice and slow tempo                       - 113,979
      - Easy solo
      - Lots of chords for easy points
      - Save Star Power for the chords

    SMOKE ON THE WATER
    as made famous by Deep Purple
    
    Here's another classic track, and my personal favorite (which really makes me
    wonder how I managed to leave it out of the first two posts of this FAQ). The
    majority of the song is fairly simple, starting with the infamous opener and
    the chorus, which are the same and are comprised entirely of chords. Behind the
    numerous verses, the guitar part is very easy so there should be no problem
    until you reach the first of the song's two solos. They can be pretty difficult
    for those that haven't got the X button mastered, so save some Star Power up
    for those sections.
    
    o  Grab the first three Star Notes. Activate them on the second verse.
    
    o  Pick up the next two Star Notes. Activate them at the first solo.
    
    o  Grab all the following Star Notes. Activate at the second solo.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Most of it is easy                        - 141,954
      - Slow tempo
      - Easy chords/chords only at the chorus
      - Difficult solos
      - Star Power at the solos

    INFECTED
    as made famous by Bad Religion
    
    This song is also pretty straightforward. As before, don't let yourself get
    tricked by the chords, though they shouldn't really become much trouble here.
    Probably the easiest song thus far.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Plenty of chords                          - 175,500
      - No solo to speak of (or much of)
      - Use Star Power at the chords

    Alright fine, I'll admit you're getting better. You've moved on from your

    IRON MAN
    as made famous by Black Sabbath
    
    Alright, another rock classic (and my official theme song). This is the kind of
    song you should be practicing at all times at the beginning of your rock star
    career since its slow tempo and moderate use of X. Don't use up Star Power here
    as the guitar solo is a killer.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Simple from start-to-solo                 - 111,837
      - Difficult solo
      - Save Star Power for the solo

    MORE THAN A FEELING
    as made famous by Boston
    
    Ahhh, this is one feel-good song, man. Brings back some good memories. It's
    also a real easy track for the most part, though if you haven't gotten good at
    chords yet the chorus may hurt you. I suggest keeping Star Power for the chorus
    as the chords can rack up some killer points.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Simple opening                            - 160,653
      - Chorus has a lot of chords
      - Save Star Power for the choruses

    YOU GOT ANOTHER THING COMING
    as made famous by Judas Priest
    
    Ohmigod. Judas Priest? Is the list of freakin' awesome tracks ever going to
    end? This song is another chord-filled track so get ready for a lot of
    practice. If you've been using the tips I gave you above, you should get past
    this one no problem.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - The entire song is chords                 - 191,586
      - Solo is short and simple
      - Use Star Power during any series of
        chords

    TAKE ME OUT
    as made famous by Franz Ferdinand
    
    Franz Ferdinand? The Archduke of Austria whose assassination resulted in the
    outbreak of World War I? Apparently he rocks. This one sounds cool and isn't
    too difficult. There isn't really a solo here to worry about, though the
    beginning may give you some trouble since you won't have gotten Star Power yet.
    Hang in there for the first 30-seconds and the rest is smooth sailing.
    
    By the way, if you like this song don't search the internet for what the band
    looks like.  You will be sorely disappointed.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Difficult opening                         - 173,277
      - Repetitive middle
      - No solo
      - Use Star Power whenever you want

    SHARP DRESSED MAN
    as made famous by ZZ Top
    
    Man they got some variation in this tracklist. ZZ Top? Alright! This one is
    also a very simple, straightforward track. The solo is long but it's also easy
    so it acts more as reading practice than anything else. Well, take your time
    and relax now, because from here on the goin' gets tougher.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Slow tempo                                - 133,149
      - Simple guitar part
      - Long-winded but easy solo

    get your girlfriend back from the kumquat what stole 'er.

    KILLER QUEEN
    as made famous by Queen
    
    This isn't exactly thrash but, whatever. This is one of Queen's better songs,
    really showcasing Freddy Mercury's vocal talent. The guitar part is simple
    and makes a good warmup song. You should already be proficient with the X
    button by now so there shouldn't be any trouble until the end. Save some Star
    Power for the last bit and you're good to go.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Another easy one                          - 87,675

    HEY YOU
    as made famous by The Exies
    
    This song's beginning is rather misleading, because it'll trick you into
    thinking you can actually handle the song. The trouble with this track is that
    there are several chords, and the chorus has a *lot* of held notes followed by
    chords which may leave you dazed and frustrated. The solo is repetitive and
    overall very simple, though towards the solo's end you may have trouble if you
    aren't yet proficient with the X button.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Several chords at the chorus              - 124,512
      - Save Star Power up for the chorus

    STELLARas made famous by Incubus
    
    Not one of Incubus' better tracks, especially in a game like this where they
    really had the chance to boast their skills on the guitar. This is just like
    "Hey You", repetitive and boring. There's no real solo to speak of, so just

    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Really slow track                         - 109,854

    HEART FULL OF BLACK
    as made famous by Burning Brides
    
    Here's a song that'll really get your blood pumping. Try to keep up with the
    moderately fast tempo while hitting off those numerous chords. The solo is
    simple and there's nothing in the track that warrants any special attention.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Many chords                               - 147,414
      - Lots of hammer-on's and off's
      - Simple solo
      - Star Power whenever you want

    SYMPHONY OF DESTRUCTION
    as made famous by Megadeth
    
    Now this track is awesome. It's very misleading, with the simple opening and
    rather simplistic chorus. It lulls you into complacence and then really bashes
    you in the skull with its killer solo. Get ready to sew some detached fingers
    after playing the solo here. Save Star Power up for that part as you may lose
    if you don't.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Don't let yourself get tricked            - 125,976
        by the simple opening
      - Killer solo
      - Save a lot of Star Power up for
        the solo

    >> (4.4) RETURN OF THE SHRED
    
    What the hell? You be gettin' good grasshopper. But don't get arrogant now, you
    still got a long ways to go to prove your rockstardom to me and the rock gods.

    ZIGGY STARDUST
    as made famous by David Bowie
    
    Here's some more classic rock, remember Bowie everyone? This is one of his more
    well-known songs, and you should find it a blast to play through (if you're
    anything like me, a certified Guitar Hero rock god). The opening bit is great
    for X-button practice and the chords in the chorus make for good training as
    well. The solo is very easy so no need to worry. If you're going to use Star
    Power in this track, it should be at the choruses.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Lots of X's                               - 123,867
      - Lots of chords
      - Easy solo
      - Use Star Power at the chorus

    FAT LIPas made famous by Sum 41
    
    If you've watched TV recently you may have seen this video. It got a lot of
    airplay on radio stations as well. That doesn't mean it's good :P. Still, the
    crazy guitar chords' timing may throw you off from time to time, so save up
    Star Power for them.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Strange timing at the choruses            - 141,225
      - No solo
      - Use Star Power at the chorus
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    COCHISE
    as made famous by Audioslave
    
    What the heck is this? Soundgarden's vocalist meets Rage Against the Machine
    vocalless. Put their power rings together and you get... a bunch of crap. This
    song sounds just like all of the songs on *both* their albums. It's also really
    easy and has no freakin' tune to it at all. A really crappy solo, too. God, I
    hate this band.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Bad from start to finish, also            - 114,132
        too easy
      - Use Star Power whenever you want
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    TAKE IT OFF
    as made famous by The Donnas
    
    An all-girl band. Probably something that Harmonix felts was a necessity just
    to remain neutral towards both genders. I say that because it's not as if they
    found one of the better girl bands, but whatever. The chords aren't too hard,
    though switching between them is, as always, a hassle. Just keep your focus up.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - A lot of chords                           - 115,755
      - Use Star Power at the chorus

    UNSUNG
    as made famous by Helmet
    
    Alright, Helmet! Did you read that? Helmet! Ok. Put your "helmets" on, because
    this is gonna be one hell of a ride. A lot of chords will pummel you pretty
    much from the start so I hope you've already mastered the techniques I taught
    you earlier. A moderately difficult solo awaits you near the song's end.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Lots of chords from start-to-finish       - 238,266
      - Keep your head up for the solo
      - Use Star Power whenever there are
        chords

    >> (4.5) FRET BURNERS
    Alright, you're getting there. Now would be a good time to switch your nasty
    diapies for a fresh pair. How long is it now, two hours? Get me some grapes
    while you're at it.

    SPANISH CASTLE MAGIC
    as made famous by Jimi Hendrix
    
    Ok, I know, this version of the song isn't complete, but that's to save time
    because the real deal is like ten minutes long. They also eliminated the vocal
    track from this cover since nobody can do a decent imitation of Hendrix. This
    may seem really difficult, but if you've been practicing a lot it shouldn't be
    a problem at this point. In fact, when you get to this song and realize just
    how many notes you're hitting you'll probably be surprised. Give yourself a
    pat on the back, donkey breath.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Deceptively simple, but don't let
        your guard down
      - Crazy, long-ass solos
      - Use Star Power whenever
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    HIGHER GROUND
    as made famous by The Red Hot Chili Peppers
    
    This guitar in this song may sound a little strange, but they're doing more
    with less. In fact, it would've been awesome to get the bass on this track
    since Flea just goes insane in this song. Anyway, the ending may surprise you
    with a sudden switch in tempo and melody. There is no solo here, so don't worry
    about that, just a lot of tapping since there are many repeated notes. If your
    timing is good and your fingers are strong the constant button mashing
    shouldn't pose too much of a problem.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - No solo
      - Save your Star Power for the chorus
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    NO ONE KNOWS
    as made famous by Queens of the Stone Age
    
    Here's another really famous track that the kiddies should recognize. It's the
    one that is *always* playing. Everywhere. This song is a blast, and is one of
    the best songs to practice the chord tips I mentioned above. This song is chock
    full of chords, and at the chorus it has a lot of held-notes followed by tapped
    notes. That's a deadly combination if you aren't prepared. Keep Star Power for
    the chords.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Lots of chords
      - Watch out at the chorus
      - Save Star Power for the chords
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    ACE OF SPADES
    as made famous by Motorhead
    
    Here's another rock band legend. This has some crazy, fast repetitive notes.
    It's quite easy to pull it off the first few times, but considering how often
    the song wants you to do it I wouldn't expect you to get it right every
    instance it happens. This is a freakin' fast, insane song with a driving tempo.
    Use Star Power whenever you think necessary, no part is juicier than another.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Fast
      - Lots of repetition
      - Moderately difficult solo
      - Use Star Power whenever you
        deem necessary
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    CROSSROADS
    as made famous by Cream
    
    Holy crap they have a helluva good tracklist. Cream is a freakin' icon from the
    era of peace, love, and smokin' bud. This song has a lot of chords and two
    freakin' awesome solos. The first solo is pretty hard to nail on the first try
    but the second is murderous if you aren't careful. Save Star Power for verses
    one and two, where there are plenty o' chords. This is proof of Eric Clapton's
    rock god status. Mr. Clapton, I bow deeply to you.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Lots of chords
      - Two very long, hard solos
      - Save Star Power for verses 1 and 2

    GODZILLA
    as made famous by Blue Oyster Cult
    
    Blue Oyster Cult is freakin' *old*. Here's a nice warm up for you. A lot of
    chords here, and two overall "medium" solos should get your fingers nice and
    limber. Nothing to worry about, the song isn't too difficult for you at this
    point.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Lots of chords
      - Two cool, moderately difficult
        solos
      - Save Star Power for the chords
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    TEXAS FLOOD
    as made famous by Stevie Ray Vaughn
    
    Here's some Stevie Ray to satisfy you blues fans. This song is basically one
    *very* long solo from start to finish. This means that there won't be very much
    repetition here. The tempo is overall very slow, but there will often be a few
    notes that are placed very close to one another, changing up the tempo very
    suddenly. Use Star Power whenever.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Little repetition
      - Watch out for tempo changes
      - Star Power is at your beck and
        call. Do what you will with it.

    FRANKENSTEIN
    as made famous by The Edgar Winter Group
    
    *UPDATE*
    Thanks to Stephen Kness for the band name correction.
    
    This song doesn't have any vocals so you take the role as front man here. There
    are a few chords here, though not enough to really save Star Power up for. You
    may be surprised at just how many notes they throw at you at a time, a series of
    notes may seem to go on forever. In which case you should use Star Power there.
    Be careful towards the end -- at the drum solo -- not to waste your Star Power.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Little repetition
      - Long-winded solos and *many* notes
      - Watch out for the drum solo
      - Star Power? Whenever.

    COWBOYS FROM HELL
    as made famous by Pantera
    
    Alright, now we're gettin' to the goods. Everything up to now ranged from easy
    to fairly difficult, but these next two tracks are going to be deadly. This
    song has plenty of chords throughout, and several very fast series of notes.
    The chords are great for Star Power, but only if you can handle the solo. Watch
    out for the solo here, it's insanely difficult.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Fast tempo                                - 244,041
      - Lots of chords
      - Watch out for the solo
      - Star Power either at the chords or
        solo

    BARK AT THE MOON
    as made famous by Ozzy Osbourne
    
    Two tracks with Ozzy in them? Though he isn't with Sabbath in this one that
    doesn't mean he can't rock.  Jake Lee is freakin' insane and if you've never
    heard Ozzy's stuff, you'll love this. Take good care of the finger that presses
    GREEN before playing this track because it may fall off afterwards.  There is
    some serious repetition of the GREEN note here. But if you manage to get past
    all of that, keep your eyes wide open for the guitar solo. I've never actually
    been capable of completing the last bit of the guitar solo without using Star
    Power. The solo is basically a gradual rising and falling of notes for about
    two measures. At that point the speed doubles so your fingers will be flying.
    
    *UPDATE*
    Thanks to Paul Dog for the guitarist correction. Jake Lee played "Bark at the
    Moon", not Zakk Wylde.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Very fast
      - GREEN heavy
      - Killer solo
      - Use Star Power during the first
        verse whenever you want, at the
        second verse save up for the
        solo.

    FIRE IT UP
    by Black Label Society
    
    Here's the actual Zakk Wylde at work with his new band. Unfortunately, it
    doesn't really show you his skills on the guitar and the track is rather
    boring. There isn't really anything that should have you worried in this song.
    Just enjoy yourself.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Very easy song                            - 111,711

    CHEAT ON THE CHURCH
    by Graveyard BBQ
    
    These guys won the "Want to be a Guitar Hero" contest that GH's developers held
    a long way back, and for good reason. After you get past the rather tame
    opening, the driving tempo will have your fingers really crunching the buttons.
    This is one of the best examples of how important reading ahead is, as well as
    your reflexive instinct on the DualShock, as the quickly changing notes don't
    give you any time to ponder over them.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Very fast tempo                           - 150,474

    CAVEMAN REJOICE
    by The Bags
    
    Here's a pretty good song, and the subject of its lyrics always makes me laugh.
    I mean, come on guys, it's about cavemen. Cavemen are hilarious. This song is
    repetitive and easy. As far is difficulty goes, it's only slightly harder
    than "Fire It Up", and there are a good deal of chords. Don't waste
    your Star Power during the long breaks towards the middle of the song.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Lots of chords                            - 140,982

    EUREKA, I FELL IN LOVE
    by The Upper Crust
    
    Apparently this band wears tights. That's... cool (not). The song's chords are
    arranged in an order that may confuse you the first time. Luckily, you'll have
    time to get used to it as they repeat themselves over and over throughout the
    entire track. Watch out for held notes followed by tapped notes. The solo is
    just as repetitive, but isn't full of chords and held notes.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Confusing chords                          - 106,434

    ALL OF THIS
    by Shaimus
    
    This is one of my favorite songs in the entire tracklist, and I can't really
    explain why. I'm not usually into this kind of music, but the song is so damn
    happy that you can't really *hate* it. It's full of chords that may confuse
    you. I have an example below:
    
                                        | | | | |
                                        X | X | |               X - Notes Played
                                        X | | | |               | - Not Played
                                        | X | X |               / - Held Note
                                        | X | | |               * - Star Note
                                        ---------
                                        G R Y B O
    
    To play this part you'd press and hold the single note, then press the other
    note in the chord at its time. So you should actually play it like this:
    
                                        | | | | |
                                        / | X | |               X - Notes Played
                                        X | | | |               | - Not Played
                                        | / | X |               / - Held Note
                                        | X | | |
                                        ---------
                                        G R Y B O
    
    And even though the song sounds fairly simple, don't let that trick you into
    thinking the guitarist doesn't have skill. The solo is insane, with a lot of
    necessary hammer-on's and off's (on the SG). Just keep your eyes open. Don't
    blink.

    BEHIND THE MASK
    by Anarchy Club
    
    This song sounds strangely similar to "Hey You", though it's not as good. This
    song is very simple, no chords or solos to worry about, so conquer it ASAP and
    move on.

    THE BREAKING WHEEL
    by Artillery
    
    Ok, are you ready to die? This song just might do it. It's full of repeating
    chords, repeating single notes, repeating crap. It's bound to have your fingers
    bleeding at song's end. No solo here, but that's not what you should be worried
    about.

    CALLOUT
    by the Acro-brats
    
    I hate this song, mostly because it's crappy punk. Actually, I think I hate all
    things crappy (like you). It's easy on the most part, but during the chorus
    there are some repeating chords as well as held notes that you should watch out
    for.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Moderately fast tempo                     - 145,914

    DECONTROL
    by Drist
    
    This song displays some of Marcus Henderson's ability on the guitar. The main
    part is repeating chords, similar to "Cowboys from Hell", so you shouldn't
    worry too much about that (unless your fingers are really tired). The solo is
    difficult and could result in your death (or GAME OVER, whatever).
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Lots of chords                            - 189,984

    EVEN RATS
    by The Slip
    
    This song always makes me think of that crappy MTV reality show, Laguna Beach.
    In the beginning I liked it because of all the beach babes, but then I realized
    that there was no real essence to it so I ditched it for some hot librarians.
    Easy from start to finish, this song shouldn't be too much of a hassle to get
    through. The ending, however, will bore you to tears.

    FAREWELL MYTH
    by Made in Mexico
    
    Oh my God I hate this band, too. The guitar playing here always makes me wince
    and the type of music they play shows you how seriously they take themselves.
    Play this only if you're goin' for Rock God status. Otherwise, ignore with a
    vengeance. Easy track because it repeats itself from start to finish. No solo
    either.

    FLY ON THE WALL
    by Din
    
    This song has a lot of chords that you should watch out for. The song is pretty
    fast-paced, too, so it's a good wake-up call after "Farewell Myth".

    GET READY TO ROKK
    by Freezepop
    
    This is a song that I disliked in the beginning. I only came to enjoy it after
    I was able to pull off the solo, which is crazy fast. This song is also full of
    a lot of chords, so there are plenty of easy points here. The only way to get
    the song down is through lots of practice.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Chords from start to finish
      - Plenty of hammer on's and off's at the solo

    GUITAR HERO
    by Monkey Steals the Peach
    
    This is the game's title track, and it's one of the most fun to go through.
    Similar to "Get Ready to Rokk", this song has a lot of chords and hammer on's
    and off's, but because this song doesn't ask you to tap the buttons as quickly
    it isn't as difficult. There is a pretty long solo after the second verse, but
    it's nothing more than a few hammer on's and off's so that shouldn't be too
    difficult for you to deal with.

    HEYby Honest Bob and the Factory-to-Dealer Incentives
    
    The guitar part in this song is pretty catchy, but after playing it over and
    over again it quickly loses its appeal. You'll be playing the same bit from
    start-to-finish so don't expect to really enjoy this song. The tempo is
    moderately quick and there aren't solos or chords to worry about.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Moderate tempo                            - 81,681

    SAIL YOUR SHIP BY
    by Count Zero
    
    For some strange reason it's always difficult for me to differentiate this song
    from "Hey". Anyway, this song has a lot of unconventional guitar playing and
    synth but nothing to throw you off. The slow tempo is very forgiving, and you
    should have enough time to read ahead and get the notes down.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Slow tempo                                - 140,451

    STORY OF MY LOVE
    by The Model Sons
    
    This song is awesome. Has this song had some airtime during a commercial? It's
    very familiar to me for some odd reason. This song has a very fast tempo, and
    when you couple that with a *lot* of chords and held-notes you've got trouble.
    Keep your head up and be careful when you switch from one chord to the next.
    Don't worry too much about the solo, though.
    
    SUMMARY:                                   5-STAR CUTOFF:
      - Fast tempo                                - 180,474

    >> (5.7) SECRET TRACKS
    
    Hidden deep within Guitar Hero's coding lie two mysterious tracks. Both tracks
    remained a well kept secret until two hardcore gamers hacked into Guitar
    Hero's program and dug them out for all of us to enjoy. Unfortunately, the
    quality of the two tracks is pretty low so don't expect something that's too
    uber-fantastic. Below I have the codes to unlocking both tracks with Action
    Replay MAX. Don't ask me for the codes using Gameshark or some other cheating
    device as I will delete your e-mail with my eye lasers and fart in your face
    while you're asleep... with a vengeance.

    TRIPPOLETTE
    
    *WARNING*
    This cheat will replace the "Guitar Hero" track (by Monkey Steals the Peach)
    with Trippolette.
