When battling Lou in expert mode, strum without holding any frets until you lose. Select "Tutorial" and play the tutorial for guitar battle until the "Lesson Complete" message appears. When the next fret board appears, pause the game, and exit to return to the lesson menu. Press Red to return to the list of songs. Lou's notechart will now be set to easy mode.
During an online versus match (Face Off), the meter bar in the middle of the screen displays who is winning by the most points. To get more points, hold the whammy bar down while playing. The whammy bar gets you more points for longer notes, but on short ones it is hard to hit. Hold the whammy bar to get all of them.
There is a reference to the movie Predator in the song "Helicopter". After playing the song, go to the "More Stats" screen or to Practice mode and get to the screen where you cselect what section to play. One of the sections in the song is called "Get Back To The Choppa!!!" which seems to be a reference to Arnold Schwarzenneger's line in Predator, when they are all running away from the Predator.
Skip to the tutorials and do the Advanced Techniques section. Once complete and the screen goes back to where it gives you a choice for tutorials and practice, go directly to practice. Look at the set list. All the songs will have five stars by them and a 1,000,000 score.
Before using Star Power, pause Game Play. Then, hold [Select] and resume game play. By doing this, you will not miss as many notes if you are going for a "Five Star" rank.
-During the introduction, before you start, wrap a rubber band around Green. By doing this, you will not have to worry about holding Green. Make sure you press the other buttons quickly so that Green can register. If you hold the buttons as you do the hammer-ons, Green will not register, and you will fail.
Hammering On and Pulling Off occurs when you can strum on one note and successfully hit the notes that come after it without using the strum bar. Look for the single notes with white rings on top instead of black rings. As long as you hit the previous note, you can hit the next note by pressing the correct fret button. This is very useful on songs like Cult of Personality under the Hard difficulty setting.
Your PS3 must be connected to the internet. Go to the PlayStation Store and go into the Disc Based Game Add-ons section. There will be a link to Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock there. You can then select songs to buy.
