Strike a Chord is one of Orbulon's microgames in WarioWare: Twisted! (where it is known as Guitar Solo), and returns in WarioWare Gold as one of Penny's microgames.


The game's purpose is to play the notes written on the guitar/violin. There are three kinds of notes: red, yellow, and blue, and three parts on the guitar/violin with the same colors as the notes. If the player plays the notes on the guitar/violin in the correct order, the game is won.

  • 1st level difficulty: There are three notes.
  • 2nd level difficulty: There are four or five notes.
  • 3rd level difficulty: There are five to eight notes.
