    Yo. What's up? It's been a long time since I've done anything for GameFAQs,
    and I'm sure everyone has been anxiously awaiting my return. Well I was 
    coming to look at the top ten lists when I noticed that GH III on every
    console was one of the most wanted FAQs, so I said, "What the heck, I'm bored."
    So here I am. This will cover the point amounts needed for different stars on
    each difficulty, and give some expert tips. And quite honestly, that's about
    all you need to know, so it's about all I need to tell you.

    By the way, this is taken right from my Guitar Hero FAQ. Same game, new songs,
    know what I mean?
    
    lright, there arefive buttons, the green, red, yellow, blue, and orange 
    (G, R, Y, B, O). And 
    towards the bottom of the controller is the strum bar. You strum every note 
    with this except if you can pull off or hammer on. We'll cover that in a 
    second. And finally, there is the whammy bar. While playing, if you hit a long
    note move this toward the guitar and back to wiggle the note. If the note has 
    star power, then you will get more star power. We'll also cover that next.
    
    ***********
    How to Play
    ***********
    
    ------------------------
    Hammer ons and Pull offs
    ------------------------
    Okay, hammer ons are when you strum a note, and then hammer on the next fret 
    button up (G, R for example) and the note is played. This is kind of hard to 
    explain, so try the tutorial advanced course. Pull offs are the same thing just 
    the other way around.
    **Note: Not all notes can be hammer oned/pull offed. The notes that don't have
    the black circles around the top and bottom can be hammer oned/pulled off.
    
    ----------
    Star Power
    ----------
    Star power is a life saver. If you are doing Bark at the Moon on expert and 
    you're deep in the red, tilt the guitar up and the tilt sensor in the guitar 
    will activate the star power. Also, if you've aced a song and you're not gonna 
    fail, then use this to rack up some extra points. It works for other songs to, 
    I was just picking a hard one for example. You get star power by hitting all
    of the star notes in a row.
    
    ----------
    Whammy Bar
    ----------
    If you are playing a long note, then you can use the whammy bar to make the 
    note wiggle. To do this, you move the bar in towards the guitar. Do it 
    repeatedly to make more wiggle. If the note contains star power, then using the 
    whammy bar will extract star power. Also a huge life saver. 
    
    -----------------
    Difficulty Levels
    -----------------
    Easy: The beginner mode. You use the yellow, red, and green buttons to play the
          songs. Chords are very rare, also. The board moves slowly and gives you
          plenty of time to think about what finger to use.
    
    Medium: This picks up a little. You use the green, yellow, red, and blue keys
    	on the board. Chords are more common now. The board moves a little
    quicker now, but slow enough to think. You will be introduced to Hammer
    	ons and Pull offs. Start learning now, you'll see what I mean...
    
    Hard: This can get difficult. You use all the keys. The board moves pretty fast
          making you have to think on your fingers, giving your brain almost no
          time to process the notes. You will use a fair amount of chords and the
          board moves pretty quickly. You will NEED hammer ons and pull offs if you
          wish to survive.
    
    Expert: ...0_0 THIS is HARD!!! You will use all keys. The board moves amazingly
    	fast. Your fingers will probably fall off after a while. Hammer ons
    	and pull offs will be everywhere, and you will need to use them to
    	your advantage. The solos will be agonizing. And chords galore! Be 
    	ready to move your hand and fingers all over the place.
    
    **********
    Dual Shock
    **********
    
    If you are using a dual shock controller, the controls are: L2 is green,
    L1 is red, R1 is yellow, R2 is blue, and X is orange. All you have to do is 
    press the button to play the note. There are no hammer ons or pull offs, and 
    the whammy bar for this one is the right analog stick.

    Tips                                                         .:tip03:.

    This is also taken from my Guitar Hero FAQ. I'm very original, if you hadn't
    noticed.
    
    1. Use your pinky!
    2. Slide your entire hand up and down to play orange notes.
    3. Master Hammer-ons/Pull-offs.
    4. Use the info in this guide!!!
    5. When using hammer ons and pull offs, press your fingers down hard for a more
       successful result. 
    6. Pay attention to the board, not your character. 
    7. Focus.

    Final Song Tips                                                .:son05:.
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    I'll go ahead and say, I won't put tips for songs like Slow Ride, and Hit Me
    With Your best shot, because frankly there's nothing to say. I won't bore you
    with the whole "save your star power until the hard part" nonsense, as that
    pretty much goes without saying. 
    
    Just to be clear, I'm not bashing on people who are new Guitar Hero or saying 
    that I am almighty by saying there's nothing to say for these songs. I am 
    merely saying that you have gotten a little bit ahead of yourself if it's way 
    to hard.
    
    * * * * * * * 
    Raining Blood:
    * * * * * * *
    
    Mosh 1 = One of the hardest things ever. The only way I can do it is to use
    all four fingers and move my hand all the way up. It's hard to explain. Maybe
    this will make more sense.
    
    For the first four notes, the B Y R G, B = Pinky, Y = Ring Finger, R = Middle
    Finger, G = Index Finger.
    
    The next four, move your whole hand up, don't just stretch your fingers, so
    O = Pinky, B = Ring Finger, Y = Middle Finger, R = Index Finger.
    
    For the solo, use the two fingers you can move the fastest for the quick bits
    that are like RYRYRYRYRYRYRYRYRY and such.
    
    When the lyrics start, there are some notes that are G [pause] GGGGGGGG
    then some chords. If you can't master this, your better off completely ignoring
    the pause and to strum through it on your double strumming frenzy.
    
    From there, you should be alright.
    
    * * * * * * * *
    Cliffs of Dover:
    * * * * * * * *
    
    For the riff that is O R GG  O Y GG  O B GG, it is not an even rythem. You will
    have to change your strumming speed slightly through this part, something I 
    can't show you in writing.
    
    The solo is simple enough, You might be abble to pull almost all of it off with
    P/O and H/O's. 
    
    The riff that has an O then another note, such as O B O Y O R O G O B O G, 
    whatever, all I can say is good luck. I can't master this either.
    
    * * * * * * * * * * * *
    The Number of the Beast:
    * * * * * * * * * * * *
    
    Be sure to let go off the red button in the intro when playing the chords.
    I found myself not realizing the problem and promptly failing because of it.
    
    For the solo, use the Raining Blood strategy.
    
    * * * * 
    One:
    * * * *
    
    The whole song is insanely easy until the solo. For the solo, the first part
    is probably the only part that will give you a problem. Use star power and 
    double strum like there's no tommarow. The star power should last you through
    that part, and the rest is pretty easy.
    
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    Through the Fire and Flames:
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 
    
    Hehehe. The most fun song in the game.
    
    For the intro, hold down green the whole time, and as soon as you hit on of
    the other notes, release the button. You have about .7 seconds to hit the note
    and release the button so you can P/O the green note. Strum all of the 
    non-green notes.
    
    If you are deep in the red when you finish the intro, which is always my case,
    this riff and the following few minutes should get you back into gear. 
    
    The section where the singer is going "Whoa oh oh" and the keyboard thing comes
    in, slide your fingers up to hit the orange note, and double strum if you
    start failing single strumming. It goes the same way as it did for the intro,
    this next riff should put you back into gear.
    
    For the solo, do everything necessary to refrain from using star power at the
    first part. Save until the part that's a lot like the One solo. If you have
    used your star power before this, you have a chance to get it back. When you
    see the star notes, drop everything and get the notes. Make it your top 
    priority. 
    
    After the solo, you'll have about 30 seconds to get your rock meter back up
    before a really hard guitar fill. Just double strum it as fast as possible
    and you'll get through it. Try to get up your star power as much as you can
    before the next part. It's looks like one of those things that are really fast
    but easy to hit. Yeah, but it isn't at all. Use star power here, and if you
    get through it in the green, you will probably get through the last little
    hectic section at the end. 
    
    I have only beaten this about five times. Two of which I got someone else to
    hold down the green button down in the intro. And I play guitar in real life.
    So having both cheated and having a slight advantage from my guitar lessons a
    while back, I still had quite a time playing this song. 
    
    Congratulations. Now you can go tell everyone you beat Through the Fire and
    Flames on expert. Now if I could only beat Jordan...

    Thought I'd through these in here, they can be annoying.
    
    
    |VS. Tom Morello|
    
    This one isn't hard, but I figured I might as well through it in here while 
    I was at it. Save up your powers until you have three, then use one. When you 
    get another one, use it too. Eventually you'll get to a part at the end with
    a bunch of notes. Start using all of them here, but wait for each effect to 
    wear off before using a new one.
    
    |VS. Slash|
    
    I'd play this one a few times without trying to win to get to know the song.
    When you're familiar with it, save up your powers and use them one by one when
    you get to the third power.
    
    |VS. Lou|
    
    Ughn. I have bad memories of this battle. You need the Whammy power for this
    as the first power you get. When Lou starts to play his solo after you get the
    power, use it right before he has the multiple green button streak. He will 
    miss every green note, and there are so many, so fast, that it will make him 
    fail.

    You spend your cash at the store. You can get outfits and stuff. New guitars.
    Songs. Videos. A bunch of useless stuff that's there simply for looks. 
    
    There's a weird thing involving outfits. There are two styles for each 
    character. Buy the style and you'll get new outfits for the style. Thought
    I'd mention that.

    Multiplayer has evolved a lot from the original face-off. There is now battle,
    face-off, pro face-off, and Co-op (career).
    
    * * * * * *
    Battle Mode
    * * * * * *
    
    In battle mode, star power is replaced with Attacks. You get attacks the
    same way you get star power, and the same for activating. There are a variety
    of attacks. They are:
    
    Broken String - Requires you to press a random button repeatedly
    Up difficulty - Makes difficulty go up one, except on expert
    Double notes - Turns all notes into chords
    Lefty/Righty Flip - Flips to the opposite hand setting
    Amp Overload - Makes notes fade in and out so you have trouble seeing them
    Whammy - Make all notes impossible to hit until the whammy bar had been 
    	 whammied (?) a lot.
    
    * * * * *
    Face-Off
    * * * * *
    
    In Face-Off, each person chooses their own difficulty and then the two people
    fight for the most points. Each person has a selection of notes they must hit,
    and the selections alternate between each person.
    
    * * * * * * *
    Pro Face-Off
    * * * * * * *
    
    Pro Face-Off is the same as Face-Off, except both people play every note and
    on the same difficulty.
    
    * * * * * * * 
    Co-op/Career
    * * * * * * *
    
    One person plays lead, and the other plays bass or rythem. Each person plays
    on their own chosen difficulty. It's the same as single player other than 
    that stuff.
