  • Open Pick mode has been removed entirely. Open notes now appear on EXPERT and MASTER difficulties for Guitar and Bass.
  • Wailing bonuses must now be performed in a specific direction, either up, down, or right.
  • A foot effector has been added, which allows the guitar to be played with Chorus, Delay, or Reverb effects. The guitar effect knob has been retained, which now alters the effect strength.
  • Guitar neck and body have been made significantly lighter.
