This page needs images of controls for the PlayStation 2 from the controller buttons category to make learning the controls easier. If a set of controller button images is available for this system, please add them. If a set of controller images isn't available, it might need to be brought up on StrategyWiki:Staff lounge.

The game defaults are set for right-handed players. There is an option available in the menu for left-handed players that want to play the guitar left-handed (right hand on the colored neck buttons, left hand strumming/picking).

The following table maps the various system controllers to the guitar controller for those that want to play without a guitar.
