For Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero II, and Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s, tap the fret at the main menu. For remaining Guitar Hero games, go to the Options, Cheats, and then Enter Cheat. The following list below shows the abbreviations of the fret colors for the cheats.

If notes are bunched, two or more frets should be held down during the same strum (Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock & Guitar Hero: Aerosmith only). Guitar Hero World Tour and any newer games don't have chords and have 8 digits to input codes.

  • Unlocks all characters, items, and Quickplay songs in the game.
  • This cheat disables game save.
  • IMPORTANT: (Auto) Game Save feature must not be pre-disabled. Specifically, when game dvd is booted the system checks for presence of PS2 memory card; if none found the option is given: Continue play without game save? Yes/No. If “Yes” a second option is given: Disable auto-save? Yes/No. If you choose “Yes” (which you would normally do if playing without a mem card, because after each completed song the game hangs up while trying to auto-save the performance stats to an empty port) the cheat code above (and only the above cheat) will not work. If planning on using this cheat; choose “No” then continue to the Main menu (the one where you choose: Career mode, Quick Play, Options, etc.), tap in the code. Once code is accepted; confirmation in white lettering appears stating that the Unlock cheat is active and that game save feature is disabled.

After message disappears, you are able to play any song you want in either Career mode or Quick Play mode, however you can only play the songs normally available within the particular mode; which means that more songs are available in Career Mode. Also, you can directly choose to play any/all songs in easy mode the first time around, which I believe is not normally possible to do on certain songs until you have invested a lot of time into the game. It seems to me that especially in the case of encore songs you must first play them in at least the Medium skill level because the song which precedes it doesn’t seem to initiate an encore song at all, unless it is played at the medium skill level or above. I do not believe it is possible to change skill levels between an encore song and the associate song.

Unlock All Songs (X360 only) Edit

Guitar Hero 5 Edit

Guitar Hero 5 has new cheats. All the cheats may not have been posted yet but their are new cheats and they are All HOPOs, Contest Winner 1, HUD Free Mode, and All Characters. There is one pseudo-cheat, a fake cheat, called Absolutely Nothing that is used as a joke. The cheat from Guitar Hero has came back except renamed as Focus Mode but instead of the band being only visible, the entire background is black. Since the Music Studio has been upgraded and there are different Guitar Effects, the Extra Line 6 Tones! cheat is gone.

These cheats are located in the Options menu of your Band setup options. They are separated in Extras (for modifiers) and Cheats (for actually cheating in the game).
