Fastest way to do it is to go into battle and trade off wins with a friend in battle mode. AH.Rock Veteran - Play 150 songs throughout your entire Career. 20G - You will get this while completing all careers or you can just keep playing songs over and over. Your choice really. AI.Amazing Rockstar - Complete single player Expert Career on all instruments. 100G - This is going to be pretty tough since you must complete all songs to complete a career. There are a total of 50 songs per career and they are balanced where the hardest songs for the instrument are in the last tier. Through The Fire and Flames is always last though. All I can say is good luck and a lot of practice. For people that play guitar, get good at hammer ons and pull offs. That way you can pass the killer shreds. Bass players, you might want to get the wierd patterns of open notes with button notes inbetween down. Maybe a little bit on Hammer-ons and pull offs. Up-Down strumming is a must for both guitar and bass. Vocals, get good at your pitches. Drums, nothing I can say for drums but learn rhythm if you don't already have it. Get ready for some crazy patterns and just be glad it isn't demanding you to do Expert+. AJ.Smoking!!! - Complete the song Smoke On The Water as the Vocalist. 10G - This can be done on any difficulty. If you want to get it easy, just put the difficulty on beginner and put the mic up to something with constand noise like a fan or a speaker. AK.Deadzone - Fail a song with available Star Power in single player. 10G - Easiest way to get this is just to obtain star power and then up-down strum yourself to death until you lose. Secret Achievements ------------------- AL.Cyborg - You got a 100 note streak in the song Through The Fire And Flames on Hard or higher as the Drummer. 45G - This I would recommend on hard. You are going to need to get your drums rolls down. That is a must for this song. AM.Inhuman - You scored 5 stars in a song on Expert with Lars Umlaut in single player. 10G - This can be done on any song on any difficulty. Pick Lars, the gnome looking guy with white and black make-up on. Then just 5 star any song. AN.Golden Voice - You scored 95% or more on the song Killer Queen as the Vocalist (Expert). 35G - This song has a really weird vocal pattern. A lot of Low and and high pitches involved. Going to take a bit of practice to to get it down. AO.Lightning Speed! - You completed the song YYZ with 5 stars on Expert Bass. 25G - This is one of the hardest songs on Bass. It is almost like playing guitar because the whole song is made up of hammer-ons and pull-offs. It is called lightning speed because you do have to be really fast to hit all the notes to get a high enough score for 5 stars. Your goal is 170,000 points. AP.That was Close! - You won a song with the rock meter in red. 10G - You can do this on any song, just get to the end of a song and strum Up-Down really fast to put yourself in red and then let the song end. AQ.8th Wonder - You completed the song Through The Fire And Flames with 4 stars or more as the Guitarist on Expert. 35G - If you are a veteran at Guitar Hero 3 this may be a breeze for you because the song has been actually made easier. Replacing the hard hammer-on/pull-off section with finger tap notes, no strum necessary. This must be done on expert as just Guitar playing. Your goal score is 402,000 for 4 stars. 562,000 for 5 stars. AR.Bloody Feet - You completed the song Raining Blood with 5 stars as the Drummer on Expert+. 35G - This song is completely insane on Expert+ drums. I hope you have the double bass pedal and are really good with it. Your goal for 5 stars is 345,000 points. AS.Open Minded Strummer - You hit all Open Strum notes in the song Laid To Rest as the Bassist. 10G - This can only be done on expert. The song has a lot of open strum notes in it. Might have to practice the song a few times before attempting it. AT.Rising Star - You completed 100% on any song on Expert in single player. 20G - This can be done on any instrument. Easiest way to get this is to grab a mic, put it in front of a fan so there is constant noise running through it and then pick Laid To Rest or Raining Blood on expert. The songs are all talky type songs so it makes this a breeze to get. AU.You Play It Well - You perfectly played the Let's Play! section in the song Play With Me as a lead Guitarist on Expert. 35G - You can find this part of the song by playing in practice mode. For me to explain where it is at, it is near the middle of the song. The part starts with a finger tap shred back and forth. AV.Raining Notes - You perfectly played the First Blood section of the song Raining Blood as the Guitarist on Expert. 35G - This was originally the Mosh in Guitar Hero 3. Guess they decided to change the name since the notes have been changed. This part come up right after the galloping green notes. It is a long shred of Orange to green with random green notes through here and there. Will take a lot of practice to get down. AW.Hail The Reverend - Get 5 stars on the song Beast And The Harlot as the Drummer on Expert without using Star Power. 10G - This can be done on both Expert and Expert+. You can't use star power either way though. The song is really hard on drums. Your goal for Expert is N/A - I'll add as soon as I find out. Your goal for Expert+ is 583,000. AX.Free As A Band - You scored 2,000,000 points on Free Bird as a Band. 35G - It is possible to get over 3,000,000 points on this song if everyone is on expert and playing really well. I did it earlier with guitar, bass and vocals on expert and drums on hard. I guess if you can do the song really well and use star power at the right times. You can maybe even score 2 million on lower difficulties. II.
