Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: How the Beat Throught the Fre and the Flames.

ok this is no magic trick you must be able to play on expert and be highly experienced with the game.

I did I mastered this skill it took me 4 months of on and off work but I got it

you see that picture down there \/ pic number 1

that picture shows the pattern the intro of the song follows ,except for the last sequence is a tiny bit different but after you practice the beginning part a thousand times you'll get it. I haven't gotten it yet but my oldest brother did he said it took him about 3 hrs a weak of the intro for about 5 weeks to get it.

the intro loops 5 times or so and there are 256 notes in the whole thing.

pic 2. this is the position I highly recommend you use while playing the intro.
how its done is you hold the green fret button and you use your right hand to tap the fret buttons when the notes get in the target.

to start you wait for the red note to come then you tap the strum bar with your elbow.

If your good you can keep it goin for 256 notes.

once you have got the pattern listed below down pat you could try the intro.
go in to practice mode and select "there hammer ons" then hit the "slowest" button and then rock.

after the intro your on your own.

Step 5: Cheats


enter options then go to cheats at the bottom and enter thees cods in.

Unlockable: All Items Available (very bad to use your such a cheater)

To make every item available at the in-game store, insert the following lengthy cheat at the in-game cheats menu. Keep in mind that because you're strumming using four buttons, no sounds will play. You'll have to check the store when you're done inserting the password to see if it worked: Green/Red/Blue/Orange, Green/Red/Yellow/Blue, Green/Red/Yellow/Orange, Green/Blue/Yellow/Orange, Green/Red/Yellow/Blue, Red/Yellow/Blue/Orange, Green/Red/Yellow/Blue, Green/Yellow/Blue/Orange, Green/Red/Yellow/Blue, Green/Red/Yellow/Orange, Green/Red/Yellow/Orange, Green/Red/Yellow/Blue, Green/Red/Yellow/Orange.

Cheat: No Failure

To make it impossible to fail a song, insert the following code in the in-game cheats menu. Keep in mind that this cheat will not work in Career Mode: Green & Red, Blue, Green & Red, Green & Yellow, Blue, Green & Yellow, Red & Yellow, Orange, Red & Yellow, Green & Yellow, Yellow, Green & Yellow, Green & Red.

Hint: Battle Lou in Easy Mode (I think this one makes the game harder)

To battle with Lou using Easy Mode notes, try the following. When the battle with Lou begins (on Expert ,hard ,or medium Mode), strum fast without holding any frets down. When you lose, select the Tutorial option at the Game Over menu. Do the Guitar Battle Tutorial and play through it in its entirety. After the "Lesson Complete" message appears on-screen and the next fret board appears, pause the game and exit. This will bring you back to the Lessons menu.

From here, press the red button, which will bring you back to the list of songs. The battle with Lou should be highlighted. Choose the song, and Lou's note chart will be set to Easy Mode now. Your note chart will still be in Expert Mode, but Lou's will be in easy mode.

Unlockable: All Songs (Quick Play Mode)

To unlock all of the game's songs for Quick Play Mode, insert the following notes in the Options menu: Yellow & Orange, Red & Blue, Red & Orange, Green & Blue, Red & Yellow, Yellow & Orange, Red & Yellow, Red & Blue, Green & Yellow x2, Yellow & Blue x2, Yellow & Orange x2, Yellow & Blue, Yellow, Red, Red & Yellow, Red, Yellow, Orange.

there are some other cheats for ps3 and xbox360 but I cant look them up this second.

    thank you so much for agreeing with me on the stickers! They completely ruin the guitar!! It's not like you'd put stickers on a real guitar!

    Some people put stickers on real guitars- Not me.... or at least not recently- :) They were easier to take off if they looked bad than some of my experimental paint jobs!


    Reply 9 years ago on Introduction

    haha im afraid to paint my guitar, I don't like touching the paint job at all (stickers/paint), especially my best looking guitars


    Reply 9 years ago on Introduction

    :) The last time I did that, I was young enough to not have developed the art of "thinking things through" yet! lol! On about the 4th try over a few years, I got it to look ok for pearl blue spray paint!
    Rock On!

     Tom Morello is a beast! Have you heard of the Nightwatchman, it's just him and an acoustic guitar, and folk-ey/grung-ey/punk-ey music, it's really great.
