Guitar Hero III is the third installment of the Guitar Hero series. In this music video game, you use a guitar-shaped controller to simulate playing lead, bass and rhythm guitar. Use the following cheat codes on the Xbox 360 video game console. Using these cheats will deactivate achievements.

A Note on Guitar Hero III Cheats

The codes below may look a bit odd when compared to other Xbox 360 cheats. These codes represent the colors on the guitar.

B = Blue
Y = Yellow
G = Green
R = Red
O = Orange

    When two colors are listed together -- such as "BY" for blue and yellow -- you need to strum both colors at the same time. Pay special attention to the timing when entering these codes, as it may take a bit of practice to get it right.

    Other Cheats

    Enter the following cheats within the Options > Cheats menu of the game.

    Air Guitar Cheat Code: BY, GY, GY, RB, RB, RY, RY, BY, GY, GY, RB, RB, RY, RY, GY, GY, RY, RY,
