Guitar Hero is a guitar simulation game that puts you at the center of
your very own rock band. By pressing down on fret buttons on a specially
designed guitar controller, players can form notes and chords to be played by
strumming in time on a "strum bar" representing the strings of an electric
guitar. These notes and chords are represented onscreen by scrolling note
markers. Players can choose from multiple rock characters and play at concert
venues that grow in size as your rock career progresses.
