A game of musical skill and fast fingers. The aim of the game is to play
guitar with the keyboard as accurately as possible.
Players must press buttons to keep in time with the rhythm of the music,
shown by markers on screen. An official online high score list allows
players to show off their skills to competitors around the globe.
The game comes with an easy to understand tutorial to get players
started, and a song editor lets players edit and compose songs
for use in the game.
