It's also now a series of guides to Beatmania, Dance Dance Revolution and the rest of the BEMANI series of rhythm games by Konami. While not comprehensive, it should begin to answer some of the questions that you might have about the games. Please note that this FAQ only covers the Playstation release of Guitar Freaks. For a more comprehensive look at Guitar Freaks and the rest of the BEMANI series, including things like Soundtracks (audio CDs), strategy guides, portable LCD games (like the BEMANI Pocket series), and much much more, please check out my longer work titled DJ Syndrome: The BEMANI Series FAQ. All of the information contained in this FAQ is also available in the longer, more comprehensive work titled "DJ Syndrome: The BEMANI Series FAQ". This document is merely a scaled down version that only pertains to the Playstation release Guitar Freaks (the arcade releases are _not_ necessarily covered, although some of the info may be applicable). This may be my final release for this FAQ. Please see my BEMANI series FAQ (the Compendium at gamefaqs.com) for more up-to-date BEMANI/Beatmania info.
