You can play in 2 different modes: Practice or Studio Mode. You can challenge your friends in both.
Practice Mode lets you get familiar with a song so you can unlock it for Studio mode. Here the pressure is off - it's just you, jamming along to the song, developing your skills, and learning the song. Then progress onto Studio Mode, where you can compete, earn higher points and work your way up the Six-String leaderboards.
You can play each track at 3 different levels of difficulty. You can also adjust the sound to hear only your guitar or your guitar against the full master recording.
Easily join the free, thriving Six-String social community ('Plus+ Network') to add more excitement and competition to the game. Find and add new friends to your buddy list and challenge them even if they are across the country. Compete against your friends to earn a top ranking or compete to be the best Six-String player overall, the best in your region or the best on a specific song.
Post score updates via Facebook, Twitter & E-mail. Send 'smack talk' if you win or lose a challenge from your buddy. Earn achievements and bonus points to improve your point total and ranking. Keep your rank high to compete for occasional prize offerings!
