Playing a song that you don't even know can be an interesting challenge that sharpens your skill.

Many players find using a headset to be the way to go when singing vocals.

While the Les Paul and xplorer guitars from Guitar Hero 2 and 3 work with Rock Band, the Rock Band Strat does not work with Guitar Hero.

When singing with Xbox live, if you hold down the right bumper on the controller or tape it down, others can hear you sing!

EA has a nice warranty on the hardware in case any of your "instruments" break. With a credit card number, they can send you a replacement. As long as you ship the broken part back in the box they sent you, there is no charge (assuming you are still under warranty).

If you go into overdrive right before a band member would be kicked out, you can help them stay alive!

Supposedly, it helps to keep the drum pedal pressed down until you need to use it.

Drums too difficult? Try unlocking the songs and practicing just one limb at a time.

If playing the drum pedal is uncomfortable, try this: put a book under the heel section of the pedal.

You might want to try using an actual guitar pick when you play! Some find it less tiring for their hands.

Try moving your hand up the fretboard and resting your index finger on the red button for passages with higher notes.

If you want a more authentic rock vocalist experience, grab a basic microphone stand from a pawn shop, craigslist, or music store. It frees you up a bit - you could play guitar, tie bandanas on it like Steven Tyler, or do tricks with it like James Brown!

To make sure your drums are working, do a fast "roll" on each and make sure the hits are registering.

Just like pro musicians do, when you are in a problem spot, "play through it". Don't try to pick up the notes you've missed, just start fresh and never look back!

When playing the drums, keep a loose grip instead of a "death grip" in order to allow the stocks to bounce freely on the drums.

Have a series of alternating notes to play? Keep the button closest to the headstock (top) of the guitar held and press the button for the higher note when needed. You can do this because it mimics the mechanics of playing a string on a real guitar.

Experiment with the different sounds available when in overdrive, such as chorus and wah-wah.

Remember that the microphone wont work all by itself - there must be another instrument plugged in.

For more rapid bass drumming, try keeping your heel off of the ground, as many pro drummers do.
