Rock To The Top Five Tips For Playing Guitar Hero Well


Guitar Hero was a game that revolutionized the video game industry, where you play a plastic guitar along with popular rock and roll songs. However, many people feel like they’re not getting the experience they want out of the game. Here are five tips on how you can improve your Guitar Hero experience. First: concentration is key!


The most important thing to remember when playing Guitar Hero is that you need to concentrate. The game is difficult and if you’re not concentrating, it’s easy to make mistakes.

Don’t get distracted by your friends or the television show in the background. Sometimes it’s easier for me just to play in my room by myself so I can focus better on the song and concentrate on what I’m doing instead of worrying about how many people are watching me or hearing my mom yell at me for not cleaning up after dinner.

It can also be helpful if you turn off any distractions like cell phones and computers before starting your song; this way, no one will bother you while you’re trying to concentrate on playing well!

Multiple Instruments

One of the best things about Guitar Hero is that it lets you play on different instruments. I’m sure you’ve heard that before, but you may not have considered how useful this can be for improving your playing.

When I started playing GH3 on Expert, I noticed that some songs weren’t as hard with a controller than they were with an actual guitar, so I decided to focus on practicing those songs with the controller instead of just using my original instrument. This turned out really well; after a few months and hundreds of hours of practice, I had mastered every song in the game! But then it hit me: if other instruments are easier than my guitar for some songs… what if there are even more difficult ones?

Work The Strings

  • Work The Strings
  • Use The Whammy Bar
  • Use The Strum Bar
  • Practice Hammer Ons and Pull Offs

Aim Right

The first thing you should do is aim for the highest note. Don’t worry about hitting the bottom notes, but try to hit all of the upper notes. This will make it easier for you to get a good combo score at the end of each song.

Next, try aiming for blue notes rather than red ones (unless there are no blue ones). Blue notes are slightly harder to hit than red ones and they give more points when you do hit them correctly.

Thirdly, try aiming for one of two different kinds of note when playing in solo mode: either aim at one that is furthest away from other notes or one that is closest to other notes (this isn’t as important during cooperative mode). The reason why this matters is because if a guitar hero focuses too much on hitting certain parts of their guitar over others then they won’t be able to move fast enough later on down the road!

Stay In Tune

  • Stay in tune! As we’ve discussed, staying on pitch is the most important thing you can do to improve your playing. It’s also the easiest way to sound like a professional guitarist. When you’re playing guitar Hero well, it’s easy to get distracted by all the other aspects of playing that are fun—but don’t forget about keeping your guitar in tune!
  • Use a guitar tuner. There are plenty of apps for tuning your instrument, and many of them even have autotune features that will automatically correct minor mistakes for you (though this can be distracting if overdone). If you’re looking for something more low-tech, try using a pitch pipe or tuning fork instead; these instruments will let you know exactly how far off key each string is from its correct pitch. Once again: practicing often and paying attention when things go wrong will make it easier for you to stay in tune with any kind of instrument—and this includes both electric guitars and air guitars (you know who we’re talking about).

You can improve your guitar hero experience with these five tips.

If you want to improve your guitar hero experience, here are some tips to get you started.

  • Focus on the game. When I play guitar hero, my main goal is not to be a rock star but rather to have fun and play the game in such a way as to achieve that goal. If I’m not focusing on what I’m doing, then it’s hard for me not only to enjoy the game but also improve my skills at playing it. So try focusing on what’s going on in front of you—the screen and all its bright colors and sounds—and see if it helps make things more enjoyable!
  • Play with friends or family members who are better than you are at playing guitar hero! This tip may seem counterintuitive: after all, wouldn’t getting beaten over and over again by someone who’s better than me just make me feel bad? It actually won’t! Instead of being demoralized by all those losses (which will happen), just remember that each failure brings us closer together as friends because we’re working toward something together: getting better at our favorite video game!
