Exercise 1: Guitar Hero
The upcoming Guitar Hero XIII: Legends of Rock needs a player configuration
system. Guitar Hero XIII lets you play three different characters (Slash, Jimi
Hendrix, and Angus Young). Each character can play one of three available
guitars (Gibson SG, Fender Telecaster or Gibson Les Paul) and perform a unique
solo act (Put the Guitar on Fire, Jump off stage, Smash the Guitar).

Assignment 1: Implement a player configuration system in Java using the
Strategy design pattern.
Here’s a class containing the Java Main method to help you on your way.
public class GuitarHero {
public static void main(String[] args) {
GameCharacter player1 = new GameCharacterSlash();
GameCharacter player2 = new GameCharacterHendrix();
Hint1: Use the Java Duck example from Chapter 1.
Assignment 2: Some guitar players trash their guitars on stage. Modify your
code so players can change guitars on the fly.
Assignment 3: Try to draw a class diagram for your solution using violetUML.
Identify the IS-A, HAS-A and IMPLEMENTS relationships.
