    Disclaimer (DSCL)
    
    I wrote this guide myself, and this guide is written around the ways I find it
    easiest to get the achievements. You can print this guide off if you wish, but I
    do not permit you to use this document in any way and document it as your own.
    Ask me if you wish to publish it, and I will usually agree, as long as it is
    noted that it was not written by you. Also tell me the website, so I can verify
    you made the above claim. This will only appear on www.gamefaqs.com, unless I
    say otherwise.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Updates (UPDT)
    
    1.1 - Updated with info on Bling Bling, added extra into band career completion
    and 50 Note Posse as well as Jack of All Trades. Put in another FAQ, and the
    update secion was added. Fixed a few minor typos. Added an email from Randall
    about a method to get Guitarist's and Vocalist's Coattails much easier.
    
    1.0 - Um, the whole guide pretty much except for changes listed above.

    Introduction (INTRO)
    
    Hey there, are you in the need for some extra Gamerscore? That's where this
    guide will help. I'll try and detail as much info as possible as to how to get
    these Achievements. Luckily most of them are pretty easy, but some can be
    tricky, misunderstood or even glitched! If you think of any other ways to
    achieve them *Even if its slight abuse like some of the Guitar Hero 3
    Achievements were, feel free to send them my way. My email is at the top of the
    FAQ*. Also note that the secret achievements are here, so you've been warned.
    Not like any of them are really that Secret anyway.
    
    
    3.0
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Achievements (ACHV)
    
    The achievements will be listed in alphabetical order, with the Gamerscore
    listed next to the name, followed by the way to unlock it, then general tips. If
    you're searching for a particular one, use Ctrl + F to find the name quickly and
    effectively.
    
    
    1.21 Jigowatts?!?!  (15)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    All Band Members activated Star Power at the same time
    
    For this achievement, you must have a Band of four players. If you can't find
    four people near you, or you don't have the full band kit, this can be
    obtained in Band Quickplay in the Xbox Live menu. To get this, just save up some
    Star Power until the bar is full. This should be easy, and the difficulty
    doesn't matter, so having a vocalist on Beginner will give you enough Star Power
    to do this in a matter of seconds. Then, have all players activate Star Power.
    Note that it doesn't HAVE to be at the same time, but all band members must be
    IN Star Power at the same time. So for example, three people can activate, then
    just before it runs out the last person can activate and you will get the
    achievement.
    
    50 Note Posse  (15)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    All band members have a streak of 50 notes at the same time
    
    This achievement seems simple enough. Each band member must have a streak of 50
    at the same time. There are a few problems with this however. For the vocalist
    to have a streak of 50, only certain songs can be used. These songs are:
    
    No Sleep Till Brooklyn
    Vicarious
    Eye of the Tiger
    Hotel California
    Love Removal Machine
    Rebel Yell
    Band on the Run
    Monsoon
    Hollywood Nights
    Love Spreads
    Nuvole E Lenzuola
    Spiderwebs
    American Woman
    Livin' on a Prayer
    Rooftops
    Antisocial
    B.Y.O.B.
    Beat It
    One Armed Scissor
    Toy Boy
    Never Too Late
    
    For this, use No Sleep Till Brooklyn and have someone shouting the whole time,
    or use a fan to blow air into the microphone to get an instant 100%
    
    A Pair Beats A Pair (5)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Finish an Xbox Live 2v2 Pro Face-Off match
    
    Choose the 2v2 Pro Face-Off option, and do one of two things:
    
    If you only have one guitar, wait until you get a partner, then walk away OR
    If you have 2 guitars, sign the other one in, get into a match, then walk away
    
    You can complete it if you want to, you just have to make it to the end of the
    song to get this achievement.
    
    Axe Museum (20)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    All the guitars are unlocked
    
    This achievement is glitched, and so some may have difficulty unlocking it.
    To unlock it, you'll need to five star every song on guitar. So, after you beat
    the career, regardless of difficulty, go into the "Book your own Gig" door.
    Choose six songs that you haven't five starred, and change the difficulty to one
    or two lower. Even if you beat the game on Expert, you can play these on Medium
    etc. Then do this until every song is five starred. It should unlock after
    completing another song, so book a Gig after that and play to have fun and it
    should unlock.
    
    Bad to the Bone (10)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Play a song as the Skeleton
    
    The Skeleton is unlocked after completing the vocals career. You ONLY need to
    beat the free gigs, so if you don't want to play the ones that cost money you
    don't need to. After beating the career you can buy the Skeleton for $6000, then
    simply play a song as him.
    
    Band on a Mission (25)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete the majority of the gigs
    
    This appears when you've gone through most of the free gigs in any Career on any
    difficulty. So simply play free gigs until you get this. To get a fair few other
    achievements though, you'll end up getting this anyway
    
    Bling, Bling (30)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Earn $1,000,000 in lifetime earnings
    
    Boy, this is a doozy. In your band you have to accumulate...1 million dollars.
    Note: You don't need to have 1 million dollars at once, you just need to have
    a total of 1 million dollars. So you can spend whatever you want, it counts
    as money earned, not money available.
    
    This is a very time consuming achievement. Luckily, the way to get it is by....
    Having fun! Just play the game and you'll get it, after a LONG time. If you're
    really bent on getting it though, here's some ways to get more money:
    
    1. By putting No Sleep Till Brooklyn on Expert Vocals, putting the microphone up
    to something that makes noise (Loud speakers, a fan etc.) and changing the
    channel, watching TV and pressing A when the songs over. This gets you around
    $760 per song and involves little effort from you.
    
    2. Playing songs with long note streaks. This is the major factor in earning
    money. I recommend playing Bass songs on Expert, such as Rebel Yell. Pretty
    much songs with lots of notes that are easy to hit.
    
    Also note that online games will NOT earn you money, so don't spend all that
    time playing online getting money, because it's not going to happen. Quickplay
    and Career exclusive.
    
    Another idea is to put the vocals on Beginner while you play another instrument.
    This way you get a band unity bonus for that extra little bit of cash.
    
    Custom Beats (5)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Create your own custom drums
    
    The create your own _____ achievements are extremely easy to get. Go into Rock
    Star Creator, choose a gender, a style, then go into instrument, drums. Change
    the shell of it if possible, or just any cosmetic change to the drums, then save
    these changes by going back and clicking save. Choose a quick name (I used A for
    all my saves) then when it saves you'll get this achievement.
    
    Don't Blink (10)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Play a song as Travis Barker
    
    Travis is unlocked after completing The Pacific gig in the drum career. He can
    be bought for $5000. Then play a song as him and ta-dah! 10 Gamerscore is yours.
    
    Download Junkie (5)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Download a few songs from GHTunes
    
    Well, this is pretty self explanatory. Go into Music Creator, GHTunes, and go
    into Rising Stars, or anything else for that matter. Then download a few songs.
    To download a song, press A on the song, then Y when it appears to download.
    Do this 3 times and you get this achievement.
    
    Easy There (25)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete a career on Easy
    
    Complete all of the free careers in any instrument, or even Band career on the
    Easy difficulty. If one band member is on Easy it counts as Easy, so if everyone
    else wants to play on a higher difficulty they can. This achievement is
    stackable, so completing the career on a higher difficulty will net you the
    achievement for all of the lower ones.
    
    Feeding the Beast (5)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Upload a song to GHTunes
    
    Go into the Recording Studio, mash a few buttons on the guitar, then save it
    and upload it to GHTunes. Call it a small name, like A for convenience.
    
    
    First of Many (10)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete a gig
    
    Start a career, on any difficulty with any instrument, and choose the first gig.
    Play the two songs and then the encore, and you'll get this achievement.
    
    Get Your Boogie On (30)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Score 222,222 or higher on Satch Boogie on Guitar
    
    Oh dear, this one's pretty tricky. It can be done on Hard or Expert, but expect
    to have to get almost perfect on Hard to get this. On Expert however, you'll
    need to get about 15,000 over the 5 star cutoff of around 208,000. So the best
    bet is to combo everything outside of the solo F and the trills in Solo D.
    You'll need to be able to pass Solo F without Star Power too, or at least be
    pretty capable of doing it. The best Star Power path for this is:
    *Note: Whammying all Star Power sustains is vital!*
    
    Get the first two and use on the YBO chord
    
    Get another two and use after the second orange sustain, where it goes
    GOGBGYGRGR hammerons
    
    After obtaining yet another two phrases, activate on the fast RY chords,
    not RY chord sustains
    
    After whammying the phrase before Solo F (The big daddy of tapping solos)
    Use it either at the start of the solo, or when close to failing.
    
    Make sure you get the two SP phrases in the solo, it's only three notes a
    phrase.Get the one after the solo and activate on the 2nd BO chord you see.
    
    With a bit of luck and a LOT of skill, you'll hopefully be in the clear after
    doing this path. Remember though, you need to be able to combo the WHOLE song
    apart from Solo D and F.
    
    Guitarist's Coattails (10)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Get the highest score in a band playing the guitar
    
    For this, you can be bass or lead guitar. Play on Expert while everyone else
    plays on Medium or Easy and choose an easy song to 100%. I would say something
    like What I've Done is a good choice for lead guitar.
    
    Randall wrote to me with the following, which seems like a great idea:
    
    "I found out an easier way to get both Guitarist's and Vocalist's 
    Coattail Secret Achievements.
     
    For the Guitar one, create a song and make Bass, Keyboard, and Drums to 
    have only one note and get any number of notes for the guitar. After 
    creating a song with mostly guitar notes, turn on all instruments in 
    (if you have 2 guitars, a drum, and controller + microphone/Xbox 360 
    Headset). Then play you custom song with your guitar and you will get 
    the Guitarist's Coattail achievement.
     
    I tried to get Super Group Unite, 1.21 Jigowatts?!?!, Solid Gold 
    Rockstars, and Platinum Rockstar Secret Achievements but those 4 
    achievements don't work in a Custom Song. I got a 100% on all 
    instruments (on Expert by creating a song with 1 note for each member) 
    but it didn't give me Solid Gold or Platinum Rockstars achievement."
    
    Thanks Randall!
    
    Hall of Famer (100)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete a career on Expert difficulty
    
    Again, any instrument will do, and band counts too, but everyone will have to be
    on Expert. Just complete the free gigs to unlock this. If you didn't beat any
    other career difficulty, you also get the achievements for beating a career on
    Hard, Medium and Easy, so if you can play on Expert complete the game the first
    time on it to save LOTS of time.
    
    Hardcore (60)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete a career on Hard difficulty
    
    Again, any instrument will do, and band counts too, but everyone will have to be
    on Hard or Expert, with at least one person on Hard. Just complete the free gigs
    to unlock this. If you didn't beat any other career difficulty, you also get the
    achievements for beating a career on Medium and Easy.
    
    Heavy Metall... (35)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Score 444,444 or higher on the song Trapped Under Ice
    
    This HAS to be full band to unlock. I played it with a random guy on bass and
    guitar, and we got 446,000 and it didn't work, but then we joined 2 other people
    and got it. For the most part, you'll have to be on Hard or Expert for most
    members. But, if you have a good guitarist and bassist, they can play on Expert
    while the drummer plays on Medium and the vocalist can mess around on Beginner
    and provide Star Power for the rest of the band.
    
    Inked (5)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Create a custom tattoo
    
    Edit a rockstar you've created, go to tattoo, apply a random layer, then save
    the changes. 
    
    Jack of All Trades (150)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete all instrument careers
    
    Boy, this is a pretty time consuming one. You'll have to beat all the free gigs
    in Guitar, Bass, Drums and Vocals to get this one. However, difficulty is
    irrelevant, so play Vocals on Beginner and put the microphone up to some
    speakers playing music and watch television or browse the Internet for a while
    if you find it THAT boring. Using a fan works even better!
    
    Leading Lady (10)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Play a song as Hayley Williams
    
    After completing the gig with the song "Misery Business" in the vocals career,
    you can purchase Hayley for $5000. Then choose her as your rocker and play any
    song as her.
    
    Learning the Ropes (5)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete a tutorial
    
    For any seasoned player, this could be the hardest achievement in the game.
    Sitting there as someone explains obvious stuff to you can be a challenge, but
    for best results go into the Band tutorial. It has very little work on your
    part. However, so does the Guitar tutorial on Battles and Face-Offs, though you
    have to do something near the end.
    
    Medium Musician (30)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete a career on the Medium difficulty
    
    
    Again, any instrument will do, and band counts too, but everyone will have to be
    on Medium, Hard or Expert, with at least one person on Medium. Just complete the
    free gigs to unlock this. If you didn't beat any other career difficulty, you
    also get the achievement for beating a career on Easy.
    
    Mike Checka' (30)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Score 123,450 or higher on Beat It as the vocalist
    
    If you're a decent singer, Expert can get you this with a little practice.
    However, there is a way to get this on Medium, but it requires speakers to be
    near you, as well as pretty much perfecting the song. It involves freeform
    section abuse. To learn more, go to this page: 
    
    http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=102722
    
    Mine Is Bigger Than Yours (5)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Finish an Xbox Live Band v Band match
    
    I highly doubt that. On topic though, if you have the full band set, sign in
    everyone as a guest, then go into Band v Band, get into a match and walk away.
    Or go in by yourself, but the chances of getting a game is slim.
    
    Motorcity Madman (10)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Play a song as Ted Nugent
    
    The same deal as the others. Play the Kentucky gig in the Guitar Career and
    purchase him for $10000, then play a song as him.
    
    Muse to my Ears (30)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Score 222,222 or higher on Assassin on Drums
    
    This is another tricky one to get if you're inexperienced with the drums. You'll
    need to be comboing a LOT of it on either Hard or Expert. Hard you can get
    around 95% notes hit, Expert around 90%. Use Star Power in sections you know you
    can combo, and hope for the best.
    
    One Man Band (10)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Perform as every instrument
    
    Just make sure your profile has played a song on Guitar, Bass, Drums and Vocals.
    Though if you're aiming to complete all careers you'll get this anyway.
    
    One Of A Kind Axe (5)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Create a custom guitar
    
    Make a character, go into instrument, guitar, choose a body and then a colour
    for it, then save it as a letter to save time, like A. Then you'll get it while
    it saves.
    
    One Time Solo Artist (5)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete a song
    
    Must be done Solo. Just play a song in Career. Wow.
    
    Pick and Axe (5)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Perform as a Guitarist
    
    Band or Solo. Play a song on Guitar in Career. Again, wow.
    
    Platinum Rockstars (50)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    100% a song as a band, hard or expert only
    
    Well this is a challenge. You'll need to be getting every member on Hard or
    Expert, and even the vocalist must get 100%, which due to the vocal system is
    nigh on impossible. I'd recommend No Sleep Till Brooklyn, which is easy on
    Vocals, Bass and Drums. The Guitar solo can be pretty tricky, so make sure the
    guitarist can hit it consistently on Hard.
    
    Pumpkin Smasher (10)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Play a song as Billy Corgan
    
    Complete the Poland gig in Band Career, and you can get Billy Corgan for free.
    Then play a song as him.
    
    Rock Maiden (5)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Create a female character
    
    Go into Character Creator, choose female, then a style, maybe change the hair
    colour, then save her. You can delete her afterwards. For some people, this has
    trouble unlocking, so if you don't get it the first time, try again, but
    customize your character some more.
    
    Shiny Metal Thingy (10)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Play a song as the Rokubot
    
    After you beat the Drum career, the Rokubot can be bought for $15000. Then,
    play a song as him.
    
    Should We Stick Together? (10)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete a song in a band
    
    Must be a four player band. Either do a song in Band Quickplay, or play a song
    with 3 other people. Any difficulty counts.
    
    Solid Gold Rockstars (30)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    100% a song as a band
    
    A fair bit easier than Platinum Rockstars, any difficulty can count. So choose
    No Sleep Till Brooklyn again, except have everyone on whatever difficulty they
    can 100% the song on. Or try for Platinum Rockstars if possible, then this will
    unlock as well.
    
    Solo Artist (25)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete a solo career
    
    Beat all of the free gigs of any instrument on any difficulty.
    
    Stamp of Approval (5)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Create a band logo
    
    Just create one when it asks you in the first few seconds of the game, then
    save it as any name you want.
    
    Stix (5)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Perform as a Drummer
    
    Play any song, solo or band, as the drummer. Any difficulty.
    
    Super Group Unite (15)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Earn an 8x multiplier with the whole band at the same time
    
    This can be earned at the same time as 1.21 Jigowatts?!?!. Make sure everyone is
    on a 4x multiplier, then activate at roughly the same time.
    
    Survival of the Fittest (5)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete an Xbox Live Battle Match
    
    With your Guitar, choose Battle mode, then when it starts, strum as fast as you
    can. You'll lose, get the achievement and only have wasted a few seconds.
    
    The Dark Prince (10)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Play a song as Ozzy Osbourne
    
    After completing Ozzfest in the Vocals career, Ozzy can be bought for $10000.
    Then play a song as him.
    
    The Experience (10)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Play a song as Jimi Hendrix
    
    In the Guitar Career, play until you get to the gig with The Wind Cries Mary.
    Jimi Hendrix will appear and your character will appear stunned and let him
    play. I'd be stunned if I saw a zombie of one of the most talented guitarists of
    all time walking up to me as well. He can't be played in any other song apart
    from Purple Haze (Live) and can't be bought.
    
    TOOL of Destruction (35)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Score 444,444 or more on the song Schism
    
    Much like the Trapped Under Ice achievement, this must be full band. It's just
    as easy to get too. Have the bass and Guitar player on Hard or Expert, and the
    other two can do whatever they want. 
    
    Top of the Charts (30)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete a band career
    
    Complete all of the free gigs in the band career. Luckily, this can be 2-4
    players, so if you don't have a band, put the vocals on Beginner and just talk
    into the mic the whole time. Also, if you have access to a fan (Yes, it is
    mentioned a lot. Get over it.) you can simply play whatever instrument you like
    and have the microphone near a fan to only complete it with one person. Or, you
    know, you could get a friend to do it.
    
    Vocalist's Coattails (10)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Get the highest score in a band on Vocals
    
    Play a Band v Band match with everyone signed in as a guest, and sing on
    Beginner. Alternatively, ask the other members of the band to play on Beginner
    while you play on a higher difficulty.
    
    Randall has some good avice that's very easy to follow if you're having trouble
    getting this achievement.
    
    "I found out an easier way to get both Guitarist's and Vocalist's 
    Coattail Secret Achievements.
     
    For the Vocals, do the same thing except make guitar (either lead or 
    rhythm) to have only one note and make song notes on keyboard for the 
    vocals. Play it with the vocals while every instrument is on. You will 
    easily get the Vocalist's Coattail achievement.
    
    I tried to get Super Group Unite, 1.21 Jigowatts?!?!, Solid Gold 
    Rockstars, and Platinum Rockstar Secret Achievements but those 4 
    achievements don't work in a Custom Song. I got a 100% on all 
    instruments (on Expert by creating a song with 1 note for each member) 
    but it didn't give me Solid Gold or Platinum Rockstars achievement."
    
    Thanks again Randall!

    Create a male band member
    
    Exactly the same as the female method. Choose a male, a style, then change his
    hair or make his chin resemble Jay Leno or something, then save him and delete
    him after you get the achievement.

    Play a song as Zack Wylde
    
    After the song "Stillborn" in the Guitar Career, Zack can be purchased for
    $5000. Play a song as him. Boy these achievements are repetitive.

    FAQ's (FAQS)
    
    Note: Most of these are already answered in the FAQ itself
    
    Q: If I beat the career on Expert, will I get the achievements for Hard, Medium
    and Easy?
    A: Yes you do.
    
    Q: I played Trapped Under Ice/Schism with a friend, and scored way over 444,444
    and it didn't unlock. WTF??????
    A: Those achievements MUST be full band.
    
    Q: I beat all of the free gigs and didn't get all the achievements!
    A: Try going to Book your Own gig and play a song. Or play the gigs that cost
    money.
    
    Q: Do cheats disable achievements?
    A: Yes, Auto-Kick and Always Slide will disable all achievements.
    
    Q: If I have a band where I'm on Expert but my friend/brother/dog is on Medium,
    will I get the achievement for beating the career on Expert?
    A: Nope, only for Medium.
    
    Q: X song was too hard, so I turned the difficulty down from Y to Z for that one
    song. Will I get the achievement for beating the game on Y?
    A: No, you'll have to beat ALL of the free songs on that difficulty, boss
    battles included.
    
    Q: X boss battle was too hard, so I turned down the difficulty from Y to Z and I
    didn't get the achievement for beating it on Y! It isn't even a song so that
    can't be the problem. Is my game glitched?
    A: What is this? No it isn't read above. Boss battles COUNT PEOPLE.
    
    Q: Tell me about yourself.
    A: Um alright. I'm 16, I'm Australian and I own GH2/GH3/GHWT/RB2. If you need
    anything else, consult someone you trust about this issue.
    
    If you have any you think are worthy of putting in here, send them my way.
    Also,just a little side bit, the achievement pictures for "The Experience" and
    "Bad to the Bone" are swapped, which could confuse some people, as it shows a
    skeleton for Jimi Hendrix.
