Guitar Hero III: Wireless Les Paul - screwy star power

This usually occurs when you are not holding the guitar level (The handle is upwards). If you wish to only have the star power activate when you initiate it, you should make sure the guitar is level while you are playing so you can tilt it to activate the star power. Alternatively, you can press the back button to active the star power (if you are holding the guitar properly, you can activate it by pressing down on the guitar with your wrist).

well I guess you just need to very calmly tilt the guitar to 100% vertical. Then it should work.
