Slow songs down
A sub item to the riff repeater is the ability to slow a song/riff down. This is amazing for solos that can often be quite fast. It is a great way for you to see all the notes and hit them in time.
Use The Game as an Amp
This feature doesn’t work so well on the older consoles as the hardware will generate some latency. The gameplay itself is able to counter this, but when jamming there can often be a very noticeable delay between strumming and hearing sound.

From the games menu you can begin a jamming session and can even build your own tones.
On the other side of wanting to practice further, you might find that you are too good for the difficulty that the game is providing you with.
