    I. The Achievements
    -------------------
    Guitar Hero Metallica currently has 50 Achievements worth a total of 
    1000 Gamerscore points.  Most of the achievements are pretty simple but
    a few are really only obtainable by guitar hero legends.  If you have
    all 3 instruments and have some skill in guitar hero, you can look at
    about 800+ points in the game.
    
    
    A. The More I See 
      - Complete the Tutorials 5G
      - You must complete all the tutorials.  It is really boring to Guitar
        Hero veterans as well as Guitar Hero beginners.  You can not do the
        drum tutorials unless you use the Official Guitar Hero drums.  You
        can not use the Rock Band drums for them.
    
    
    B. Metallica 
      - Complete any instrument career on Expert (Guitar, Bass, Vocals, 
        Drums or Band) 75G
      - This can be done on any career.  There is a trick to doing this.  You
        can complete the entire career on an easier difficulty and then just
        complete the last song, The Thing That Should Not Be on expert and you
        will obtain the achievement.
    
    
    C. James Hetfield 
      - Complete the career as the vocalist 25G
      - You must get 70 stars to unlock the last song to complete the career.
        It doesn't matter what songs you play.  Just obtain 70 starts total.
        If you are good at gaining 5 stars on songs, you just have to play
        14 songs total to unlock the last song.  For vocals, you can easily
        put the difficulty on beginner and then set your mic in front of a 
        fan or constant sound.
    
    
    D. Lars Ulrich 
      - Complete the career as the drummer 25G
      - Same as Vocals except done with drums.  Takes 70 stars to unlock the
        last song.  Can be done on any difficulty.
    
    
    E. Kirk Hammett
      - Complete the career as the guitarist  25G
      - Same as vocals except done with Guitar.  Takes 70 stars to unlock the
        last song.  Can be done on any difficulty.
    
    
    F. Robert Trujillo 
      - Complete the career as the bassist  25G
      - Same as vocals except done with Bass.  Takes 70 stars to unlock the
        last song.  Can be done on any difficulty.
    
    
    G. Holier Than Thou 
      - Complete all instrument careers  150G
      - You must complete the Vocals, Drums, Bass and Guitar careers to unlock
        this. They can be done on any difficulty but all must be done on the
        same save file.
        
    
    H. One
      - Complete a song with any instrument on Hard or Expert in local 
        Quickplay or Career 10G
      - Just as the description says, this can be done on Hard or Expert in
        Career or local quickplay.  This can be done with any instrument.
    
    
    I. ...And Justice for All
      - Earn 100 stars in Band Career or any single instrument Career  50G
      - This can be done on any difficulty.  Probably the easiest and
        fastest way to obtain it is to Vocals method.  Put it on beginner
        and put the mic in front of a constant sound like a fan.
    
    
    J. The Ecstacy of Gold
      - Earn $15,000 50G
      - This is over time.  Fastest way to get it is a 100 Percent songs on
        Hard or Expert.  It will take a little big of time but not too long.
        After a song, it will tell you what your total is that you have
        obtained.
    
    
    K. Ride the Lightning
      - You triggered star power simultaneously (4 player band)  10G
      - You must have a full band playing.  Can be online in Band
        Quickplay or offline in Band mode.  Make sure while in song, you have
        around 5 vials of start power and then everyone activate star power
        at the same time.  Better strategy is make sure everyone has a 4x
        first, this will net you two achievements instead of just this one.
    
    
    L. 2 X 4
      - Earn a band Hot Streak (4 player band)  10G

        players that can keep a open note strum doing and a fan for your mic.
        The drummer will have to keep hitting the bass pedal but pick Stone
        Cold Crazy since it is the shortest song.
    
    
    N. The Struggle Within 
      - Complete a song in a band in Quickplay or Career (4 players) 10G
      - Just complete a song with a full band, any difficulty will do.

    P. Nothing Else Matters 
      - Complete the career in a band (2-4 player band)  50G
      - This can be done on any difficulty.  You will need to obtain 70

        be done with only two players.  You don't need a full 4 player
        band.

      - Doesn't matter if it is private, public or ranked.  This is really
        hard to do legit searching because no one hardly plays Band V Band
        online.  Might need to find a group of people on the forums to help
        you with this one.
    
    
    S. Seek & Destroy 
      - Play 20 online matches  25G
      - Doesn't matter what the match is or if it is public, private or ranked.

        obtained with just one.  You can only get this with Drums alone.  No
        one else can be playing as well.  No Band Quickplay.  Only songs with
        a skull and crossbone beside them are Expert + songs.  Easiest songs
        to do this on are Wherever I may Roam, Master of Puppets.  Hell Bent
        For Leather is really short but has nothing but double bass in it.
