We heard news the other day that the Guitar Hero: World Tour guitar would have a “touch-sensitive neck slide”. There has been much speculation regarding this particular feature, and now we have some info on exactly what it is.
Apparently this touch-sensitive strip will allow you to do a few things. First, it can be used to alter notes during sustains and solos. You'll also be able to tap this area to play notes, which is supposed to simulate playing a slap bass. Seems a bit far down on the neck to be playing slap bass, but that's just me.
One of my favorite changes here is that the Start and Select buttons have been moved to where you would normally find the bridge on a real guitar. This not only makes the guitar look more authentic, but also should make it even easier to hit the select button to activate Star Power.
