Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Gameplay is the same of that of the original Guitar Hero. Players use a guitar controller (or regular dualshock controller) to hit notes that cross targets at the bottom of a fretboard. Hitting notes consists of using colored frets on the guitar controller to target notes on the in-game fretboard. There are still four difficulties; easy, medium, hard, and expert. Each difficulties range in the number of frets used. Easy uses the first three, medium uses the first four, hard, and expert uses all five.
