I. The Achievements
-------------------
Rock Band currently has 50 Achievements worth a total of 1000 Gamerscore
points. I have included the easiest songs for certain achievements as 
well as added the Downloadable Content songs as well.  Which are marked 
with the ** symbols.

A. Breakthrough Act
  - Unlocked a Big Club in Solo Tour on Easy, Medium, Hard or Expert 10G
  - Finish the second tier of songs in solo career, any difficulty


B. Hot Artist
  - Unlocked a Theater in Solo Tour on Easy, Medium, Hard or Expert 10G
  - Finish the fourth tier of songs in solo career, any difficulty


C. Top Artist
  - Unlocked an Arena in Solo Tour on Medium, Hard or Expert 10G
  - Finish the sixth tier of songs in solo career, any difficulty


D. String Shredder
  - Finished Guitar Solo Tour on Easy 20G


E. Fret Ripper
  - Finished Guitar Solo Tour on Medium 30G


F. Axe Assassin
  - Finished Guitar Solo Tour on Hard 40G


G. Lord of the Strings
  - Finished Guitar Solo Tour on Expert 50G
  - Alright, these are stackable achievements, meaning, if you complete
    the game on a harder difficulty, it will unlock the lower 
    difficulties as well.  This game is no where near as hard as 
    Guitar Hero 3, so for veteran players of that, you'll breeze these
    guitar acheivements.
  - I guess the real key is to practice, pratice, pratice.  No real
    tips other than that.

  - Tips from soldat329x are
    Hammer-Ons/Pull-Offs- These are noted differently in Rock Band 
    than the Guitar Hero series. In Rock Band, a hammerable note consists 
    of a large note, followed by a noticeably smaller note. The smaller 
    note, needs not to be strummed, only pressed as it crosses the bar.

  - Fender Controller- If you are lucky and have a working Fender 
    controller, you will notice that sometimes when playing the 
    scrolling fretboard glows blue and a percentage comes up. 
    That means you have entered a solo. On the Fender controller 
    only, you can use the lower set of fret buttons during this 
    time and can finger tap your way through the section without 
    strumming. Just press the button as the note scrolls over the bar.

  - Timing Window - The timing window for Rock Band is a mix between 
    Guitar Hero I and Guitar Hero II in my opinion. It is insanely 
    tight. This means that you have about 3/4 of a second in any 
    direction to hit the note as it crosses the bar. If you understand 
    this concept, solos will come a little easier to you.
    

H. Rhythm Rocker
  - Finish Drum Solo Tour on easy 20G


I. Groove Technician
  - Finish Drum Solo Tour on medium 30G


J. Heavy Hitter
  - Finish Drum Solo Tour on Hard 40G


K. AN-I-MAL!!!
  - Finish Drum Solo Tour on Expert 50G
  - These drum achievements are also stackable.
  - This is the hardest achievement in the game, go through the 
    tutorials, since this is a new idea.  If you are really having
    problems, you can always have a friend do the bass pedal for you
    while you concentrate on the four drum pads.


L. Howler
  - Finish Vocal Solo Tour on easy 20G


M. Screamer
  - Finish Vocal Solo Tour on medium 30G


N. Crooner
  - Finish Vocal Solo Tour on hard 40G


O. Virtuoso
  - Finish Vocal Solo Tour on expert 50G
  - The vocal achievements are stackable as well.
  - The best thing I can say is to learn the songs, it will make the
    songs a lot easier to complete.  Now, there is a trick where
    you can hum into the mic.  If you hum the sounds and rhythm of
    the song, it should go through smoothly.  There is a youtube
    video about it.  http://youtube.com/watch?v=whJKXfD1M4k
  - Another tip is to learn the games pitches, you can also learn the
    songs by putting them on cd or your ipod, this will help big time.

P. Got Wheels
  - Unlock the Van in Band World Tour 20G
  - This is random, but you will get it by playing gigs, so yeah.


Q. Open Road
  - Unlock the Bus in Band World Tour 20G
  - This is the same with the Van but it will be a bus instead.


R. Jet Setter
  - Unlock the Jet in Band World Tour 20G
  - Same as above but will be a Jet this time.


S. One Million Fans
  - Reach 1,000,000 fans 10G
  - You will get this eventually if you keep playing.
  - The number of fans you get is set on this 
 Easy - 49,005, Medium - 260,000, Hard - 600,000, Expert - Unlimited
  - It will only adjust with the person on the lowest difficulty,
    so if you have everyone playing on expert and one on easy, it
    goes with easy.


T. Hall of Fame Inductee
  - Finish the Hall of Fame Induction in Band World Tour 100G
  - This shows up as an invite right after you get your PR Firm. 
    It is located in Moscow and will be noted with a gold record. 
    It is an 8 song set - (Don't Fear) The Reaper, Highway Star, 
    Tom Sawyer, Flirtin' With Disaster, Enter Sandman, 
    Foreplay/Long Time, Run to the Hills, and Wont Get Fooled Again. 


U. Vinyl Artist

V. Gold Artist
  - Finish the Endless Setlist in Band World Tour on Hard 20G


W. Platinum Artist
  - Finish the Endless Setlist in Band World Tour on Expert 25G
  - wow, 25 points for 58 songs.  After you complete Hall of Fame
    inductee, this is unlocked, this is all 58 songs on the disc,
    even bonus tracks.  It will take about 5 hours to do, you can
    not quit or you will have to start over.  You can pause if you
    need a break.  You will need at least two people to do it.


X. Big In London
  - Finish the last remaining gig in London 10G
  - Each venue in a city must have a check mark by it. This 
    signifies that it has been complete. When all the venues in a 
    city have a checkmark, the achievement will unlock. The venues 
    are what you see after you select a city. The sets are what show 
    up after you select a venue. To be complete the sets do not have 
    to have maximum star ratings, only need to be complete.
    This is the same with all the Venues.
