I'm new to this game, and when I practice, I select a normal game. However, on career and quick play, I get something odd.

There are no boxes to hit, and there are rainbow lines. I can press how ever many buttons I want, and hit the guitar non-stop, to receive a 3 star level completion. Why does it work like that?

Have you tried another song? I haven't played Guitar Hero in the while, but this sounds like the finales/drum rolls from Rock Band, that are at certain parts of the song for bonus points. – Macha Mar 27 '11 at 14:32

Sounds like you're on beginner mode. Try increasing the difficulty level.

Yes. Beginner mode removes the pitch aspect of the game, only expecting the player to get the rhythm correct. – YellowMegaMan Mar 28 '11 at 8:58
