    You may be asking, why make such a guide? This game is all about skill and
    practice to become better, you don't need to read a guide on all that. This is
    where many go wrong about guides for Guitar Hero or Rock Band. This guide's
    sole intention is not only to help you understand techniques you will use to
    gain more skill, but it will also reveal all of the hidden things in the game
    and list all the sets you will be playing in World Tour Mode, as well as show
    the different challenges there are in the Tour Challenge Mode. A list of
    achievements is also at the end of this guide for those looking in on the
    secret achievements and those who would like to know what achievements are
    available on the game.
    
    So there you have it, a useful guide for a game almost solely based on skill.

    OVERVIEW BASICS [BAS]                                                      2.0
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    Rock Band is a game of timing and music adept. Other than the vocals, the
    gameplay is relatively the same. You will see a trackboard (for guitar and
    bass, it's called the fretboard) with four or five colors at the base
    (drummers will see four, and a fifth as a bar surrounding the four colors).
    When that colored note hits the bottom of the trackboard and lines up with
    it's respective color, you must strum or hit that note on your instrument.
    If blue comes down, hit blue, if red comes down, hit red, if yellow and green
    come down, hit yellow and green, and so on. For vocalists, the trick is to
    match your pitch with the pitch on screen. The words are not necessary,
    unless it's a "talkie part", in which you must say the words, because the
    game doesn't reconize you saying words when you run them all together. You
    must articulate your words during the talking.
    
    In all instruments, there is a unified "white" section (for vocals, it's
    gold). These white sections will give you overdrive (the meter below the
    different colors, and just above your multiplier score). If you can play the
    whole section perfectly, you will earn yourself one fourth of that meter. To
    release the overdrive, guitars and bassists will raise their instruments to
    point up, drummers will play a fill section ending with the crash cymbal, and
    vocalists will play during a gold "open" section. Drummers and strings can
    earn double the amount if they all play during a single section together. A
    small icon will appear in the center of the screen when these three
    instruments have a unified section, if all three complete it, they will
    automatically have enough to go into overdrive. If ust two complete it, they
    will still have enough to start overdrive, but those who missed it won't get
    any.
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    VOCAL TIPS [VOC]                                                           2.1
    
    ==============================================================================
    EASY --> EXPERT
    
    Vocalists and drummers have the hardest job within the band. They have to
    keep their stamina up in order to perform. When preparing to play (yes, I said
    preparing to play), make sure you do not drink any soda or drinks that can
    cause you to become more thirsty. Water and milk usually do the best job of
    keeping your air passage open and non-abrasive. Avoid clearing your throat, as
    that will cause the vocal chords (the things that make pitches) to cross and
    vibrate vigorously, drying them out.
    
    Once you've prepared either try a simple "Do-Re-Mi" excercise to get you in
    tune/pitched. At the start of every song, find a comfortable "middle ground",
    a place where you can feel comfortable to sing at, and it usually should fall
    directly in the middle of the trackline. It's best to know the songs prior
    to playing them as well, so feel free to go the extra mile with your band
    and download the songs to listen to in your free time. You may find you enjoy
    more songs.
    
    An optional part of playing as a vocalist is the percussive sections. You can
    either tap the mic with your hand or by hitting the green "A" button. It's
    easier to tap the "A" button because your hand won't go numb and turn red.
    The downside to hitting the "A" button would be if you are a person who likes
    to stand and sing their part, you will be carrying around an X-Box controller
    as well. Figure out the best solution that works for you and take drinks often
    or your throat will dry out.
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    GUITAR TIPS [GUI]                                                          2.2
    
    ==============================================================================
    EASY
    
    If you've never handled a guitar controller and this would be your first time
    picking one up, get prepared to be either hooked, or working to the wee hours
    of the morning attempting to learn this bad-ass piece of machinery. Most of
    this guide will be covered assuming you have the Rock Band original guitar,
    and not the Guitar Hero controllers.
    
    There are four parts to the guitar: the play frets (the colored notes at the
    top of the guitar), the solo frets (the colored notes at the base of the neck
    of the guitar), the strum bar (the bar just below the solo frets), and the
    whammy bar (the large metal bar sticking out of the base of the guitar). Each
    of these four are required to play the full Rock Band.
    
    The basics of playing the guitar is to hold the colored fret you need to play
    (either the play or the solo frets), and strum when the note crosses the base.
    If it is a long note (it will have a line dragged from the start), you must
    hold that fret for the entire duration. During overdrive sections, if you have
    a long note, you can wiggle the whammy bar in and out to gain more overdrive,
    or sustain your current running overdrive (if wiggled fast enough). Finally,
    the sections outlined in blue are the solo sections. You'll know it's a solo,
    because a percentage will appear above your trackboard and count up for every
    note you hit. You can use the solo frets to play this section, and if you do,
    you don't need to strum! This can be counter-intuitive though as some of the
    tougher songs require you to hit notes fast than your finger can press it
    down.
    
    MEDIUM
    
    Once you get going with a guitar, you will soon find it boring to play on
    easy. Don't fret! There are harder difficulties! Be prepared though, when you
    walk to the next difficulty, it might hurt for a while.
    
    The medium difficulty introduces the new button: the blue one. Nothing else
    changes too much, except that your pinky now has some work to do. Keep at it
    and get used to this new button.
    
    HARD --> EXPERT
    
    The hard difficulty will add a new button, and change how you play on the
    guitar forever. Once you master this button and the follow tricks, you won't
    want to leave hard or expert. With the orange button added on, a lot of the
    tracks you play will sound a lot better and you will have to learn a bit of
    hand positions. The basic hand positions are:
    
    Green Root:  G-R-Y-B-
    Red Root:     -R-Y-B-O
    Skip-per:    G- -Y-B-O
    Skip-py:     G-R- -B-O
    Skip-Bo:     G-R-Y- -O
    Octave:      G- - - -O
    
    These hand positions are found throughout the entire game, and are where the
    fingers will need to go if you want to hit the hammer on/pull off (HO/PO)
    sections.
    
    HO/POs are sections where you will strum the first note (the large one), and
    "fret" the rest (the smaller notes). These sections are relatively fast and
    seldom call for runs (running from one note to a note 3 or 4 away). Practice
    "running" up and down your fretboard in all positions (in Octave, go from top
    to bottom without skipping). Knowing how to get from one fret to the other
    fast enough will get you going through the expert solos.
    
    One last note: PRACTICE MODE WORKS.

    DRUM BASICS [DRM]                                                          2.3
    
    ==============================================================================
    EASY --> EXPERT
    
    Drumming requires a lot of hand-eye coordination in order to achieve the
    ability to play. A helpful way to start on drums is to take the drum tutorial
    and learn to get a sense of rhythm. Once you've accomplished the tutorial,
    switch to the Drum Trainer and pick up your first couple of rhythms. If you
    have to, don't bump the tempo to anything higher than 120 BPM. This will get
    you learning some of the simple rhythms like 4-2 Snare Hits and triplet hi-
    hats. The most important thing is to lern rhythms, beats, and patterns.
    
    Make sure you train your foot to work nearly independantly from your hands
    can do off patterns between your hands and foot, but still keep it in time.
    The first couple of patterns will not involve your foot, but as you progress,
    you will add in the foot hits and learn to get different beat patterns from
    it.
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    BAND BASICS [BND]                                                          2.4
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    In order to maximize your score and create uneeded energy use, playing as a
    band can become pretty difficult and require some sort of leadership in order
    to progress during and between songs. Usually you want a singer or guitarist
    as your unclaimed leader. Have them direct usages of the overdrive and making
    sure no more than one person is saving any players who have failed out. If two
    people end up going for one person, you create a waste of Overdrive for the
    song because now someone is using their overdrive for no reason.
    
    During band play, you wll notice that instead of doubling your own individual
    multiplier as seen during solo play, you will multiply the whole bands score,
    depending on how many people are in overdrive. You can earn up to a x8 score,
    along with a nice achievement. Coordinating these kinds of things can be hard,
    and it's best to work them in with the drummer and singer. It's not possible,
    don't make it work, but use them when you need to (during sections with plenty
    of notes). Remember, it becomes a "band" multiplier when others play with you.

    TRACK LIST OVERVIEW [TRC]                                                  3.0
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    The tracks available for Rock Band 2 are expandable, in the sense that the
    list of songs available will continue to grow with each expansion game and
    with each downloadable content that becomes available. Due to the high volume
    of songs released each week, tis guide will only serve it's purpose to show
    the original released songs for the game, which include the 55 songs available
    from Rock Band 1, the 84 songs available on Rock Band 2 (called disc songs),
    and the 20 songs that will be released as an expansion of Rock Band 2. After
    the section about how the tracks work, you can find a list of all these songs
    (with the inclusion of the 20 bonus songs when they are released) with it's
    related difficulties. The songs will be listed alphabetically by disc.

    ==============================================================================
    EXPORTING SONGS
    
    In order to export songs from the original Rock Band 1 disc to the Rock Band 2
    disc, you will need:
    
    1) A connection to the internet.
    2) An X-Box LIVE account.
    3) The original Rock Band (with updates).
    4) $5 worth of Microsoft Points.
    
    First, start by putting in Rock Band 1 and letting it update. When it is fully
    updated, you will be able to go to the Options Menu and choose "Export Songs".
    Select that option, and it will remind you that you need over 1	GB of space
    available. Continue on, and it will bring up the purchase screen, asking if
    you would like to download the Transfer Key. Select yes, and allow it to
    download this small file. Once completed, the export will begin. It should
    only take about 5 to 10 minutes to fully complete. When it's finished, go
    back to your dashboard, select System and then Memory. Under "Games", you
    should find Rock Band. Select that and a list of each individual song will be
    in that list. If you do not want certain songs (Highway Star, Green Grass &
    High Tides, etc.), you may choose to delete them individually. If you choose
    so, know that you must repurchase a license key in order to transfer them
    again. So choose wisely if you really want it. When you load up Rock Band 2
    the next time, you should find a seperate sorting to get all songs from Rock
    Band 1, which will be denoted as a "Download Song".
    
    ==============
    SCORING TRACKS
    ==============
    
    Tracks have two scoring methods: percentage of notes hit, and sequence of
    notes hit. For ever note you hit, you earn 25 points. After hitting 10 notes
    in a row, you will double every note you hit. After 20, you will get triple
    the score. After 30, it is quadruple. For bassists, 40 and 50 notes hit will
    give you bass groove and a 5x/6x multiplier. During solo tour, going into
    overdrive will double that number, and place it in the center sphere, while
    in Band Mode, overdrive will place a 2x/4x/6x/8x marker next to the score, to
    denote that every member is getting a score multiplier. Hitting more than one
    note at a time will add the points toether (or multiply by 2), and if you hit
    3 notes at the same time, you will get triple for that chord. Held notes are
    worth 50 points per beat (a solid bar across the fretboard). This is also
    multiplied depending on your multiplier.
    
    =====
    STARS
    =====
    
    You score is directly related to your number of stars. Hitting 15% of the
    notes will score you one star. 35% will score you a second star. 50% of the
    notes will get you your third star. 75% of the notes will get you your 4th
    star, and hitting 100% will get you the 5th star.
    
    ==============
    GOING FOR GOLD
    ==============
    
    In order to hit 5 gold stars, you must be on expert. To figure out the score
    for it, take the score you achieve in order to earn 5 stars, and multiply it
    by 1.5. This means that it is still possible to earn 5 gold stars and miss 1
    or 2 notes. 1.5x the score means that you must spend at least 50% of the song
    in overdrive (take half of the full score and add it on = double half the
    songs possible 100% score).
    
    ===============
    THE CROWD METER
    ===============
    
    Your value for a note streak has two values: a negative and a positive. The
    positive value is continuously replaced if you best it, and the highest value
    is displayed at the end of a song (XXX note streak). You negative value is
    never displayed as a number, but as a picture. On the left hand side, the
    crowd meter will display the bands current negative/positive value of note
    streaks. Each members value is displayed, and averaged out to get a value
    of the overall crowd meter. The values it takes from 100% (of the crowd meter)
    to fail out of a song are:
    
    45 Notes (Easy)
    40 Notes (Medium)
    40 Notes (Hard)
    35 Notes (Expert)
    
    For each note you miss, your icon will drop a respected value. Until your
    negative streak value is equivalent to your max value. Once a member has
    failed out of a song, the average value of all members breaks from where it is
    and steadily drops until it hits 0%. If, at this time, members of the band
    miss any notes, the value will significantly decline. Using overdrive will
    pull this value back up for a short period, but only if you are able to raise
    your icon up (ie, it won't work if you/the band is already at 100%).
    
    If your icon has already dropped to the lowest number (34/35), it will take
    the inverse of the list above (-1) to bring your icon back up. These numbers
    are:
    
    34 Notes (Easy)
    39 Notes (Medium)
    39 Notes (Hard)
    44 Notes (Expert)
    
    If you go into overdrive, depending on your multiplier is how much less notes
    you must hit in order to go back to 100%. If you are at a full 8x multiplier,
    you will have to hit only 25% of the notes listed above. The bassist will have
    the same amount, but for the respective 4x, 8x, 10x, 12x.
    
    ============
    BAND SCORING
    ============
    
    Scores made in solo tour are calculated by your score alone. Scores made in
    band world tour are calculated by adding the sum score of all members. For
    example:
    
    Bass:   25,000 on expert.
    Guitar: 50,000 on expert.
    Vocal:  10,000 on medium.
    Drums:  25,000 on hard.
    Band:  110,000 on medium.
    
    The band score will be then placed at the lowest difficulty, with a sum total
    of all members. Because overdrive effects all band members, each individual
    score will be slghtly higher than your own personal best (because you have up
    to 4 times as many chances to hit overdrive).
    
    =============
    SOLO SECTIONS
    =============
    
    Solos are seperate sections of songs in which all rules still apply, the only
    change is that you will gain extra points (under the star rules, these points
    ARE calculated in how much it is required to get 5 stars, which means, without
    overdrive, you MUST hit 100% of the solo). These extra points are not really
    extra to the song, but if you get lower than 100%, it will account for your
    streak and score. Big Rock Endings are NOT accounted for star count, which
    means, any points earned through this are considered as extra points.
    
    =============
    VOCAL SCORING
    =============
    
    For vocalists, measuring the amount of points and a streak are a lot different
    then how the rest of the band functions (which is also why you, the singer,
    does not participate in unison bonuses). A song is broken down into a number
    of phrases. These phrases are broken down into individual words (and seldom
    further, into individual syllables). For every length of a phrase you hit
    perfectly, you earn a multiplier (until you reach 4x). Each phrase has 4 types
    of ratings:
    
    50% of the phrase = MESSY
    75% of the phrase = GOOD
    85% of the phrase = GREAT
    95% of the phrase = EXCELLENT
    
    Note, that you do NOT need to hit a phrase perfectly. You MUST match a pitch
    in order to earn chunks of the meter. In order to earn a phrase, you must hit
    an excellent, nothing below it counts.
    
    =============
    VOCAL FAILURE
    =============
    
    Depending on the difficulty of the song, just like everyone else, a certain
    amount of poor scores will drop your icon. Sometimes, it may seem like it is
    dropping faster than the rest of the band, this is due to the fact that you're
    "misses" are longer than everyone else's. A "MESSY" will account for one whole
    miss. Miss the following amounts in each difficulty and you will fail out:
    
    5 MESSY (Easy)
    4 MESSY (Medium)
    4 MESSY (Hard)
    3 MESSY (Expert)
    
    A "GOOD" is still worth a miss, but it takes 3 times as many "GOOD"s to fail
    out of a song, making it worth the following to fail out:
    
    15 GOOD (Easy)
    12 GOOD (Medium)
    12 GOOD (Hard)
    9 GOOD (Expert)
    
    A "GREAT" is still a miss for phrases, but it will not ruin your crowd meter,
    although it won't help it either. Hitting ONLY "GREAT"s will maintain you at
    the starting position (75%). Finally, "EXCELLENT" is a hit, and will only
    bring the meter up.
    
    If you are in overdrive, raising your meter from near death is pretty simple
    and straightforward. It takes only 1 EXCELLENT to bring it straight to 100%, 2
    "GREAT"s to bring it to 100%, and 4 "GOOD"s to do the same. A "MESSY" will not
    bring your score down unless you make 2 in a row, making it still possible to
    fail out as a singer.
    
    ====================
    VOCALIZED PERCUSSION
    ====================
    
    The final bit of vocalists is the percussive sections. Percussive sections are
    technically considered "bonus" sections, but they do almost absolutely nothing
    to a score, especially on Band Mode. If your singer is complaining about
    bruising or aching hands, please tell them to stop as doing these sections are
    100% optional. These sections are rated just as a solo, and every hit is worth
    25 points. Period. There are NO multipliers, so don't bother using your
    overdrive during these sections. Plus, your crowd meter won't change! If you
    miss a note, they don't CARE! At the end, if 0% of the notes are hit, the game
    assumes you are on idle, and will call the solo "IDLE". Yes, singers need a
    break from now and then.

    WORLD TOUR OVERVIEW [WTO]                                                  4.0
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    Now for the meat and potatoes of this FAQ. Here is the bulk of the FAQ, and
    most likely why you came. The list of venues and challenges. If you ever
    played Rock Band 1, you will have most likely figured out the mechanics behind
    World Tour Mode and Solo Tour Mode. Since Solo Tour Mode has been excised
    completely, World Tour Mode has taken on a different sort of progression. Each
    venue still comes stocked with it's setlists and such, but nearing the end,
    venues will become harder to open, and there will be wider selections during
    each tier.
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    WORLD TOUR SETLISTS [STL]                                                  4.1
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    The way I have written this section of the guide is in two ways, as there are
    somewhat of two different sets in this Mode. The first are what I call
    "Required Setlists". These are the setlists that are placed because they meet
    the tiers criteria of being IN that tier. The second are what I call "Rotating
    Setlists". These are setlists that move only based on where your "Hometown" is
    located for your band. You will NOT find these setlists in the same tier for
    every band. Thus, these setlists are listed in the next section, and listed
    under the home city they can be found in (as the fall under a specified city.)
    
    If you have noticed a discreption between the following setlists and tier that
    they are located (as in, you find a MARATHON [GENRE] in a specific tier, and
    not according to it's locale), please contact me and let me know. Credit will
    be given!
    
    As a final note, if you are connected to XBox LIVE and have recently accessed
    the Battle of the Bands Mode at any time during a single session, some venues
    and cities will appear with a trophy icon. These represent the locations that
    a "Battle of the Band" can be accessed. You may choose to play them from World
    Tour Mode if you like, but you cannot choose to play any of the Tour
    Challenges. These must be accessed from that menu option.
    
    With that being said, on with the sets.

    TOUR CHALLENGE OVERVIEW [CHL]                                              5.0
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    This is a new mode that Harmonix added. It was almost as a make up for not
    having a solo career, and to add a bit more playtime. This mode is almost like
    playing World Tour, except there are no locations, and you play only certain
    setlists, and some of them require you to have a certain number of members in
    it, or a certain instrument.
    
    You first start with the original setlists: BAND, GUITAR, DRUMS, and VOCALS
    (sorry bassists, everything was too easy to include a Tier 0 Challenge).
    Everytime you complete a setlist, more open up, and eventually you unlock the
    next tier.
    
    The cool thing about this mode, is more setlists can be added and changed
    depending on what songs are available to you. If you imported the Rock Band 1
    songs in, you will see Rock Band setlists. Having more than 3 songs of a
    single artist will produce a setlist as well.
    
    In this section of the guide, I will break down the tiers by challenge. Since
    many challenges will be available depending on what is available, I will only
    include these types of challenges:
    
    CORE Challenges (Challenges that are readily set)
    RB1 Challenges (Challenges that are produced through RB1 Import)
    INFINITE Challenges (Challenges that include all of a specific song)
    
    I will NOT include the following Challenges (due to DLC):
    
    ARTIST Challenges (Produced if you have 4+ songs by one artist)
    ALBUM Challenges (Produced if you have 4+ songs on one album)

    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    TOUR CHALLENGES BEGIN AT TIER 0, NOT TIER 1. THIS IS DUE TO THE BASS LEVEL OF
    DIFFICULTY BEING NEARLY 1 STEP BELOW THAT OF THE GUITAR. ANY CHALLENGE WITH
    INFINITE PRIOR TO THE NAME IS THE COLLECTION OF ALL THE SONGS AVAILABLE ON
    THE HDD. THIS WILL UPDATE AS YOU ADD SONGS

    BATTLE OF THE BANDS OVERVIEW [BOB]                                         6.0
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    Battle of the bands is a new mode offered in Rock Band 2. In this mode, you
    can play solo or with up to 4 people as a band. The point of the mode is to
    get as many bands to play a set of songs and show who does the best. It's like
    a seperate leaderboard that involves specific sets of songs. There are sets of
    rules involved in each set, depending on the songs, as well as special
    allowances to alter the way a set runs, and each set is also comparing certain
    points made. Here is a short list of examples from each:
    
    LIMITATIONS:
       Must have 2 players.
       Must have a drummer.
       Must be solo.
    
    ALLOWANCES:
       'No Fail'
       'No Challenge'
    
    WINNING:
       Highest Streak
       Highest Stars
    
    ===================
    SETTING UP A BATTLE
    ===================
    
    When playing a set, prior to starting it, a special box will appear with four
    tabs to let you know about the battle. The first tab is a quick overview of
    the set itself, which lists the name of the Battle, a description of it, as
    well as the Limitations, Allowances, and how to win. If a limitation is listed
    in red, it means you do not meet the listed limitation. All Battles can be
    played if you have all four players on.
    
    The second tab is for a list of songs in the Battle. Most Battles can be
    expected of three songs, but some can get to six. One requirement for the set
    is that all players must have all the songs in the set. Some sets include DLC
    while some include RB1 tracks. If even one player does not have a song listed
    in the set, the set is unavailable to the band.
    
    The third and fourth tabs are roughly the same thing. The third tab lists any
    of your friends (XBL) bands, and the score they have made if they have tried
    the set. The fourth tab will list ALL scores that have been posted for this
    set by rank. If you hit the A button (the green fret/drum), you will be able
    to scroll down the list of people/songs.
    
    ================
    PLAYING A BATTLE
    ================
    
    When you start the set, you will notice several changes. While the battle is
    loading, it will show your opponent, which will change based on how many times
    you have entered into the Battle. The first time you enter, your opponent will
    usually be a Harmonix created band "Can't Beat this Score", and maintains one
    of the lowest scores for the set. The second time you perform the set, your
    opponent will be the band directly in front of your highest score. If you have
    any friends who have posted a score on the Battle, your opponent will be the
    next score up on your friends list.
    
    During the battle, you'll notice two different counters: the first being at
    the top. If you are a Tug of War enthusiast, you'll recognize this and know
    what it means. For each song (that's rated by number of stars), your opponent
    will appear on the left, and you on the right. When you are winning, the
    slider will be at you and your icon will be glowing. The second counter is to
    the right at the top and replaces your score. It is a star counter, for each
    song you can attain a total of 7 stars (it's impossible, but that is the
    highest count, which is a perfect score with a double score multiplier). The
    most a typical band can reach is really 6.25 stars (thats a gold star with a
    little bit more). This counter counts the total stars you have earned in the
    set so far (meaning, at the second song you will start with how much you made
    in the first). The bottom part is the other bands high score at the end of the
    song. During streak battles, your highest streak will display, and you will
    not see the tug of war slider at the top.
