Hi bbegirl, it works in two ways.
1. If you have a guitar, just grab it and play without any cables. The game use device microphone to recognise the guitar sound.
2. If not, you can use the virtual on-screen guitar in the game, tap the note and swipe to play the beautiful chords.

Playing with the on-screen fretboard is slow but not impossible. I got to the first boss then got overwhelmed by its spawns. Im definitely trying again with a guitar when I get home. I really like the Typing of the Dead vibe. Looking at the equipment menu, it seems the chords will get more varied and complex as the game progresses which is a good thing. This game should make for a good teaching tool as well. Is it on Google Play too? If so, I will recommend it to my brother who is learning guitar.

Hi toofinedog, glad to hear that you like the game! One of our inspiration come from Typing of the Dead. For Google Play version, we are developing but don't have a exact launch date yet. Please also let us know you thoughts when you play with your guitar

I gave the game a try with an older, cheap guitar I have. Upon startup, the game prompted me to play a Dm, recognized my guitar was out of tune, and directed me to the in-game tuner which was a nice touch. I got tuned up and played up to second checkpoint. Not only was the gameplay more natural, but I also enjoyed it a lot more than the on-screen controls. I am looking forward to gameplay getting more frenzied which does lead me to a possible issue. Depending on the position of my guitamurai, he attacks the closest chord-matching monster. Sometimes, the monster closest to my guy is not the one closest to a crystal. When the pick plates are introduced, I got the feeling these would be my only way to move around to re-target, but I was wondering if there is a feature that can let me quickly change targets when or before playing a chord. I did try tapping a different monster on screen, but that didnt work. Am I missing something, or should I just strum faster? Anyway, I like it. If I use the app to tune up, Ill at least try to pass another checkpoint. Ill try it with my better acoustic and my electric during other sessions.
