    Our second guitar is having the same problem. Although it worked initially...maybe for like 3 hours, it then quit. We've tried resyncing the wii remote, using the sync option on Guitar Hero World Tour menu, restarting the wii altogether and unplugging everything. Please help.......!! My twins are driving me crazy and very disappointed!

    I was told to "press the buttons at the same time". Don't exactly know what that means, might help. But I'm still confused.

Start the guitar hero game as you normally would. then take the remote that you are going to put into the first guitar and press the "home" button", this should bring up a screen that will allow you to connect another remote in the game, press the reconnect area and aim both remotes at the sensor and press the 1 and 2 button at the same time, exit this screen and then got multiplayer section of the game and you should be set. my 10 year old neighbor had to show me this. good luck..

I had the same problem, couldn't sync 2nd guitar. I figured it out. In the Wii system instructions it mentions that the controller that comes with the wii should already be synced (just push the red button in the controller where the batteries are. The second controller needs to be synced with the wii consul. So, at the same time, push the red sync button in the controller, and in the wii consul (it is found under the reset button, you will see a flap, or door, it is inside that flap, and it is also red), press the sync buttons at the same time, let go, and you should be good to go. It worked for me, hopefully it works for everyone else.

We cannot get the Rock Band Guitar to sync up

Try going to the Wii menu and reconnecting the main remote. You'll be asked to simultaneously press No# 1 & 2 to reconnect the main remote. You can then press No# 1 & 2 on the second remote so that the console reads two remotes. Now you can go to the Guitar Hero software and join the band.
Hope this helps -- it worked for us!

Syncing with Rock Band.

From Harmonix spokesperson: "Support for the GHIII guitar peripherals in Rock Band on the Wii was not possible without Activision's permission. Therefore, any questions regarding lack of compatibility with GH III hardware should be directed to Activision."

Sorry to hear.
