Guitar Hero is a series video game using a guitar shaped controller to simulate the playing of a guitar as the notes you have to hit scroll down the screen. There are five buttons on the "fretboard" of the controller, a "strum bar" on the body where the strings would be. As of Guitar Hero II, a whammy bar which could be used as a note was being held for additional score was also included. Both Guitar Hero: World Tour and Guitar Hero 5 feature drums and vocals as well as the usual guitar and bass, which originated in the Rock Band music game series. In 2011, the franchise fell silent for many years with no new games released, until 2015 when Guitar Hero Live was released with a new controller and ascetics; although it contains no Muse songs on disk or to download as of August 2017.
