	   I - HELLOS
------------------------------------
Hi! My name is Brandon and here to help you out with some stuff on Guitar Hero III: Legends Of
Rock. I'd like to thank those who read this Walkthrough. So enjoy!
------------------------------------
        II - STRUMMING FAST
------------------------------------
When you have to strum fast you will see a group of notes coming to you that is in the same
column and they are all closed in. This is when you strum fast.
------------------------------------
     III - HAMMER ONS/TAPPING
------------------------------------
This is when you see a group of different notes laid out on the track. They will come at you from
all columns that are available. This is when you tap/do hammer ons.
------------------------------------
    IV - HITTING TRIPLE NOTES
------------------------------------
This is when you see 3 columns with notes, at the same time, come to you. You must hold 3 fret
buttons and strum to do this. Most triple notes are long, and some are not. That is hitting
triple notes.
------------------------------------
        V - 16 QUAD NOTES!
------------------------------------
This is found on the bonus song, "Go That Far by The Bret Micheals Band". Here are the steps:
Step 1: Go to the "Go That Far" song. It must be on training.
Step 2: Press "Rythym".
Step 3: Choose the Bridge 2 Solo section.
After these 3 steps, you will be in the board room, and right off the bat, 3 RB notes and 8 GY
notes will come to you. You will wait for about 2 1/2 seconds, then...QUAD NOTES!!!
