     | __ ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ\  The Basics of Gameplay  \
     \__/  Code[strp]  \_________________________/
    
    On your Guitar, you will see an array of controls that include 5 buttons on the
    top of the guitar called "fret buttons", a strum bar in the middle of the lower
    part of the guitar and a the whammy bar which has the ability to produce some
    of the most excellent sounding notes one could even think of.  Each of the five
    frets has a unique color, that being, green, red, yellow, blue, and orange.
    The Strum bar along with the red and green frets will be your primary controls
    for navigating the menu system.  Flick the strum bar up and down to move your
    selector on the menu and then hit the green fret to selected the highlighted
    menu option or hit the red fret to go back in the menu.
    
    Actual game play works like this:  Once you have selected a song, colored notes
    will start to fall vertically from the screen.  At the bottom of the screen,
    you will notice 5 large circles that the notes are falling toward.  The idea is
    the hold down the fret associated with each note falling and then hit the strum
    bar as the note passes over the circle.  The guitar itself plays like a real
    guitar in the fact that you can hold down lower notes while playing higher
    notes.  For clarity, green is the lowest note on the guitar and orange would
    then be the highest note.  So, if you see a yellow note passing, you can hold
    down the green or red note while also holding down the yellow note and hitting
    the strum bar as the note passes and still get credit.  It should be noted that
    this technique does not work with chords (Chords are groups of two or three
    notes). Note that the colors will be reserved if you choose left-handed mode.
    
    There are two primary notes you should take note of.  The first kind is a
    normal note;  It's just a colored circle on the note chart.  The second is a
    held note.  It looks like your standard note except it has a line immediately
    following it.  To play these notes, you strum as the note passes over and then
    without letting go, you hold down the fret, not the strum bar. As long as you
    hold down the fret, you will get points.  If you let go of the fret before the
    line is completed, you don't lose your multiplier but you do lose all the
    potential points you could have got from holding down the note for the whole
    duration. This is also where the whammy bar comes in handy. Flick it up and
    down to score some bonus points on those held notes - the faster you flick, the
    more points you get.
    
    While playing a song, there are a few pieces of information made available to
    you that you should be aware of.  They include your score, your multiplier,
    your Star Power meter (discussed below) and your Rock meter.  Your rock meter
    has the word "Rock" written right in the middle and basically shows you how
    well you are doing.  If the rock meter points to the green, you are Rockin'
    pretty hard.  If it points to the red, you aren't rocking much at all.  You
    start each song being placed in the middle, yellow, part of the meter.  As you
    rack up a combo and hit notes, the Rock meter moves toward the green.  If you
    suck and miss notes, it moves toward the red.  If it gets to the very end of
    the red part of the meter, you lose and must restart.  All you have to do to
    beat a song is to complete it without letting your rock meter get too low.
    Simple, no?
    
    The Multiplier is another little piece of information you should be aware of.
    It is located on the left part of your screen and has 10 little dots above it.
     Those ten little dots each represent a note in your current combo.  After
    filling those ten dots, your multiplier will go up to 2x.  Fill them again
    without losing your combo and it will go to 3x and if you do it once more, it
    hit the maximum multiplier of 4x.  If you make any mistakes, your multiplier
    gets completely erased you and you must start over at 1x.  The key to a high
    score is to keep your multiplier at 4x for as long as possible.

     | __ ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ\        Star Power        \
     \__/  Code[strp]  \_________________________/
    
    Before we start discussing this section, we should first explain what star
    power is.  Star power is represented by the blue gauge above the Rock Meter.
    You receive Star Power by clearing a section of notes that are shaped like
    stars without making a mistake.  You also receive Star Power when bending
    (whammying) the held notes shaped like stars.  Once you have the gauge
    half-filled (Indicated by the white line in the middle of the gauge, you can
    activate your star power by either lifting the guitar vertically or hitting the
    select button on the guitar.  Most people will just lift the guitar as it
    leaves less room for error.  Once active, the star power will slowly drain
    until it is completely gone.  While the star power is active, you cannot
    receive additional star power.   The two primary reasons to use star power are
    either to help you pass a rather difficult section of a song or to boost your
    score.
    
    When struggling with a certain part of a song that you cannot get past
    normally, it is usually sensible to save your star power for that section to
    help you get through it. Why this works is because when your star power is
    activated, your Rock Meter will fill much faster then normal so you have to hit
    fewer notes to actually get through a section of the song without failing.  The
    other reason is to boost your score.  When your star power is active, your
    multiplier is doubled so if you have a 4x multiplier normally, it will shoot up
    to x8!  Thus, it is obvious that if you are going for a high score, the best
    place the use your star power would be when you have a 4x multiplier during a
    section with many notes as it will provide the best opportunity to achieve the
    maximum benefit from your star power.
    
    It should also be noted that you can only hold a certain amount of star power
    before you fill your gauge completely.  It is an amount equivalent to hitting 4
    star sections assuming that there were no long notes.  If you a going for a
    high score, try not to waste star power by playing sections of star notes while
    you have full star power.

     | __ ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ\    Difficulty Levels     \
     \__/  Code[difl]  \_________________________/
    
    Guitar Hero II offers 4 modes of difficulty.  Those being Easy, Medium, Hard,
    and Expert.  Easy mode offers note charts that include the first three notes on
    the guitar, those being Green, Red, and Yellow.  Medium Difficulty adds the
    blue note to the mix and Hard mode includes all 5 Keys.  Expert mode includes
    more difficult versions of the Hard note charts and throw Three-Note chords
    around rather liberally.  You will get different rewards for completing the
    game on different difficulty levels.

     | __ ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ\ Hammer-ons and Pull-offs \
     \__/  Code[hmpo]  \_________________________/
    
    There are a few advanced techniques that you should be aware of that you
    progress through the game.  Two of the most important techniques include
    Hammer-Ons and Pull-Offs.  These techniques will allow you to hit many notes in
    quick succession without actually hitting the strum bar for all of them and are
    a key technique to getting those really fast lines of notes.  Although they
    both allow you to do the same thing, they function a little bit differently.
    Hammer-Ons are done by pressing down the frets as the notes scroll by without
    actually hitting the strum bar.  Pull-Offs involve you holding down a series of
    notes that are passing in quick succession and "Pulling Off"
    of each note as it passes.  For example, if you have a run of BYRG coming up,
    you could hold down all four notes and as each individual note passes, you
    could let go of each note indivdiually.   You can only do this with notes that
    come in
    quick succession excluding repeating notes.  You can actually tell which notes
    can be played with a Hammer-On or a Pull-Off as the top of the notes are not
    black boarded but instead are white-bordered.  If you don't see the difference,
    I included a link to a picture so you can see the difference in the color of
    the notes' border.  There is a section in the game that introduces you to this
    concept in a tutorial.  I would recommend looking there
    for information as explaining these concepts is rather difficult.
    
    Further Reading on Advanced Techniques can be found in Infiltrater's Expert
    Guide listed in the same directory as this FAQ.

     \__/  Code[shny]  \_________________________/
    
    Everytime you complete a song in career mode, you will earn a chunk of cash.
    The amount of cash you earn depends on two things, those being your rating (3,
    4, or 5 Stars) and the difficulty level you are playing on.  Guitar Hero II
    does something neat where if you complete a song on a difficulty level above
    easy, you earn all the cash from the lower difficulty levels.  So, if you beat
    a song on the "Hard" Difficulty level, you get all the cash you would for
    beating it on "Medium" and "Easy" Difficulty levels assuming you haven't
    previously beat those song on the previous difficulties.  So, you have some
    cash now. Lets take a trip to the store to spend some of that cash.

    I wanted to included as much information about each song as possible so I tried
    to cram a lot of information about each song in here.  Almost all of this
    information is from ScoreHero.com which is a great source for Guitar Hero
    information.
    
    As there is a lot of information included, I decided to format this in a way
    that would be easy to read.  The format reads like this:
    
    (Song Name) - (Song Artist)
    	(Difficulty): (Note Count) -- (4-star cut off) ~ (5-star cut off)
    
    The Cut-off scores are almost all estimates.  The ones marked with a "*" are
    exact.
    The Co-Op Cut-off Scores are very rough estimates.  Some of the scores have a
    error
    range of upward to 30,000 on either side or more.  When playing on Co-op mode,
    it
    doesn't matter what difficulty you or your partner play on, the cut-off scores
    are
    still the same.
    
    If you can narrow down the scores further then myself and scorehero.com, I ask
    that

     \__/  Code[coop]  \_________________________/
    
    By far one of the most enjoyable styles of play in the game.  Team up with a
    friend to play through songs as either the Lead Guitar or the Bass Guitar
    (Sometimes the "rythem" guitar.) in each song.  You and your partner share a
    score, a multiplier and star power and you have to activate star power
    simualtaniously.  I highly recommend checking this mode out as it's tons of fun
    and you get Co-Op mode specific rewards for playing.

     \__/  Code[vrss]  \_________________________/
    
    If you've played Guitar Hero's original versus mode, this plays almost exactly
    the same.  You and your opponent go heads up against each other and alternate
    playing lines of the song.  Highest score wins at the end.

     \__/  Code[prmd]  \_________________________/
    
    To unlock this mode, you have to beat the game on an difficulty at Medium or
    higher.  This is another version of Versus mode except that you and your
    opponent play the complete note chart of the songs.  I prefer this as it is a
    direct head-to-head competition that tests the skill of each player without any
    kind of difference between charts played.

    When the song seems impossible, practice more.~
    
    Practice mode is there to help you learn songs that you normally do.  It offers
    a few neat tricks to help a rocker out.  One of those features is the ability
    to slow to music down.  IF you are having problems with a section of the music,
    I highly recommened going to practice mode and slowing it down to the point
    where you comfortably play the music without error.  Once you can play the
    music at that speed, move it up a notch.  Become 100% confident at that speed
    and continue to move up until you are playing the song at full speed.  The
    other awesome feature that practice mode has is the ability to allow you to
    play specific sections of the music.  Those sections are labeled as you play
    through a song on practice mode above the note chart for easy reference.  Use a
    combination of slowing the music down and playing specific sections of the song
    to master your music.  Finally, I can't say this enough:  Practice.  Unless you
    have great independent finger motion built into you, this game will take some
    practice so frequent practice mode often when needed!

    Known Glitches/Tricks:
    
    Make Grim Ripper play Gibson Les Paul:
    
    After unlocking the Grim Ripper, select him as your guitarist in Career mode,
    then exit Career mode. Next, go to Quick Play mode, choose any song at any
    difficulty, and either finish the song, or quit once it has started. Then, go
    back to Career mode, and the Grim Ripper will be playing the Gibson Les Paul
    with the Cherry Sunburst Classic skin! To make him play the scythe again,
    simply select it in the "Change Guitar" menu. -- MarioKartPrime
    
    
    Play The Scythe With (Almost) Anyone:
    
    First, you must have Grim Ripper unlocked and select him. Then select another
    character. The character MUST have their other outfit unlocked. They will have
    the Scythe unless you change the guitar.  Note: Since Clive Winston and Xavier
    Stone do not have an unlockable outfit, they can't play the Scythe. --
    quanchdogg
    
    Conserving Money:
    
    Instead of buying the unlockable videos with your main band, you can create a
    new band and buy the videos with your second band as the option to view them
    appears in the "options" menu.  In the end, this will save you $5,000 -- Todd R.

    |  \__/  Code[faks]  \_________________________/|
    o-----------------------------------------------o
    
    Question:  I can't get a higher star rating when I play on cooperative mode even
    though I don't make a single mistake!  How can I do better?
    
    Answer:  When you play in Cooperative mode, the cut-offs for Star ratings do not
    get adjusted when you play on different difficulties.  So, unless you are  each
    playing on at least Hard, you will probably find yourself struggling to get more
    then 4 Stars.
    
    Question:  How do you know if you can pull-off or hammer-on notes?
    
    Answer:  I discuss this in the section "Hammer-Ons and Pull-Offs" but I still
    have gotten many emails asking me this very question.  Notes that don't need to
    be
    strummed have a white border around the top of the note while the notes that do
    need to be individually strummed have a black border around them.
    
    A Visual Example:  www.daklutz.com\images\faq1.jpg
    
    Question: How do I beat "Jordan" on Expert Difficulty?
    
    Answer:  Jordan.  By far the most difficult song to play in the game.  Due to
    the large amount emails I get asking this, I may cover this subject during a
    later update.
