    I. The Achievements
    There are currently 49 achievements worth 1000 gamerscore.
    I would consider this one of the easiest Music games to fully
    complete.  Nothing is that challenging in it.  It is still a 
    fun game, but not for someone looking for challenge.  The
    reason it isn't that challenging is because it is more for
    the whole family and you can tell Activision/Neversoft
    are trying to get new people involved in the game.
    A. Welcome to Band Hero
      - Complete the Tutorials 5G
      - You must complete all tutorials.  Gameplay, Guitar, Bass,
        Vocals, Drums and Band.
    B. Rise to Fame
      - Complete 25% of the gigs in Career 25G
      - If you are playing straight through each and every song.
        YOu will get this by the end of the second venue.
    C. Nation's Star
      - Complete 50% of the gigs in Career  20G

        YOu will get this by the end of the fifth venue.
    D. World Known

    G. Shine

        each song.

      - You can read the challenge for a song when you click on the
        song.  There are Guitar, Bass, Vocals, Drums and Band
        challenges.  If you are playing online in someone else's career
        and they do a challenge, it counts for your career even if you
        aren't playing the same instrument.  The first few challenges
        are probably the easiest.  Note that most challenges must be
        don't on expert, but not all.  You can play around a bit and
        find an easy one to get Platinum or even diamond on.
