Star Power Paths

To understand these paths, heres a quick breakdown:

# of Star Powers to hit - Note to activate star power.



This is assuming you are going to hit all the 100% all the star power phases, if you don't, usually you can skip to the next activation and be OK.
WHAMMY EVERY STAR POWER HELD NOTE, IT WILL GIVE YOU MORE STAR POWER.
None of these song's require "squeezing" to achieve, as usually if you can squeeze, you shouldn't have a problem getting these scores in 1 or 2 runs.
I have only posted 1 path for each song, and you should easily be able to achieve the scores for the achievements with these below.


Creeping Death (Expert Guitar)
Path Posted by *TA Sasuke (http://x360a.com/forum/member.php?u=37351)*

2 - Next Red/Yellow

Creeping Death achievement is hard. I just got 99% missing one star power phrase and 98% hitting them all and got 550 and 562k respectively.

Gonna take an FC or a really good star power path and a 98% to get it.

Enter Sandman is pretty easy though, got it on my sightread.

I have a problem with this one -

You rocked out as King Diamond

Complete the song "Am I Evil" by XXXX in Career mode to unlock Lemmy. Then go back to Character Select, purchase King Diamond for $2000, and then play any NON-Metallica song, as any Metallica song you play will have Metallica characters only.

I beat "Am I Evil" in Career on Hard Guitar and Hard Bass
Then purchased Lemmy, played a Non-Metallica track with him for his achievement
(also replayed "Am I Evil" playing as Lemmy)

King Diamond has not unlocked for purchase

Is this the correct song for the character to unlock ?
OR
Do you have to play vocals or drums to unlock King Diamond ?

A definitive answer or further explanation is much appreciated for this one

Crazy006
03-26-2009, 01:13 PM
Ill double check on the song for King Diamond when I get home, or if someone beats me to it.... thought I had the right song.

I unlocked him on Expert Guitar, havent had a chance to play any other instrument besides Bass on 2 songs.

*FIXED* "Evil" by Mercyful Fate is the song. Updated guide

King Diamond Unlocked

Thanks to Crazy006 for the guide update

May I add two suggestions

I had to collect 70 stars to unlock the Ice Cave in vocals
I think it is 70 stars min for each career not 50

Also to Get "Metallica" achievement 75g
Just collect 70 stars on any difficulty (but in the same career)
Then expert the last song only - this is how I got "Metallica"
(You don't need 70 "Expert" stars)

03-26-2009, 07:54 PM
You dont have to complete ALL songs, just enough to get the achievement for finishing a career mode (70 stars) and beating the final song. Then The Stone unlocks as a venue.

Thanks for reminding me when it unlocks, as I have either 80 or 85 stars and this achievement, so I know you don't have to complete ALL songs.

For "Hero of the Day" achievement, I think the easiest song is Master of Puppets. You can easily use one pedal for it. The part I'm talking about is the build-up for the solo.

like your guide. i have 805gs in the game. need online cheevies if anybody wants to boost them with me.

only hard cheevies left are battery, dyers eve on drums and stone cold crazy on mic.

need the green hell achievement, just didnt try yet.

i can do play battery with -5 notes tops on guitar. if anybody can play drums and bass we can do that achievement pretty easy. i can sing expert and play guitar expert. we could just put the singing on beginner really and hook it up to a fan so we can max out our star power. should be easy. drums and bass could play medium and we could still probably get it. hit me up on live.

Earn 100 stars in Band Career or any single instrument Career

Complete 20+ songs to get the required 100 stars. Can be done on any difficulty, just has to be 100 on a single career difficulty / instrument level.

I don't know if you are wrong, or your explanation is off, but you can get this achievement by mixing difficulties on an instrument. For example, I got 5 stars on EXPERT guitar, and 97 stars on HARD guitar and the achievement popped. It does not have to be all 100 stars on HARD or all 100 on EXPERT etc...

I don't know if you are wrong, or your explanation is off, but you can get this achievement by mixing difficulties on an instrument. For example, I got 5 stars on EXPERT guitar, and 97 stars on HARD guitar and the achievement popped. It does not have to be all 100 stars on HARD or all 100 on EXPERT etc...

I'm still used to each career being separated by difficulty also like in all the other GH games... changed the description to remove the difficulty part. Thanks!

IF YOU PLAN ON GETTING 1K OR THIS ACHIEVEMENT, YOU NEED TO HAVE A GUITAR HERO DRUMKIT! YOU CAN NOT PLAY THE TUTORIAL WITH A ROCKBAND KIT!!

well I think I found a good way to raise money.
I was playing The thing that should not be on Bass expert.
I only missed one note, and of course it was one of the first ones in the first section while warming up.
I got around $950 for it. Im far from good and see this is an easy song for cash. over $800 i think was just for the streak.

Do they even sell the GH:WT drums by themselves? If not that is a very low tactic by GH to pimp their software/hardware.

TheGlow - you can boost the $15K, but you should easily get that by playing the 5 career runs. Don't see a need to honestly boost it unless you don't have the other instruments / don't enjoy them.

Lord Chabelo - They sell them individually, but for $100 retail. Usually you can find them on craigslist or they usually have sales on the bundles alot. You can buy the whole bundle, sell the other stuff, and still pay less than $100 unless you pay retail.

Score 340,000 on the song Fight Fire with Fire as the bassist

fight fire wih fire was a pain in the ass. #1 on leaderboards with 385k. not a fc. i was -11 notes and hit every star power. I think PITA is an understatement. xD Just got it not too long ago and it's been a hell of a practice session to finally break my high scores in increments. Starting with a meh 220k and working up, getting more excited as I kept going up by +10k. One final run and got 350k.

I personally think this ranks up as one of the most difficult achievements in this game and may be the huge hill to climb for 1000/1000 for most. :O

Got away with 96%, 10/12 SPs hit, 469 streak. A good SP path will do wonders. :D

(Oh, and as stated, I don't think it's possible to get on Hard) :(

When your doing Master of Puppets on expert + it's really easy. When the double bass part comes in just play the bass pedal when your actually hitting the notes and skip the second bass pedal, your meter will stay in green the whole time... it's way to easy... haha...

I haven't tried it yet but it sounds good in theory. For the Battery achievement ( score 1 million in a band) you could probably get guys who are good at expert, not great and just everyone go down to hard difficulty and just have a fan as your singer on beginner. Then everyone can leach off of the star power the singer gets.

I think this would work because I got about 400,000 or so just with the fans help. I know Bass is a bitch with all those open strums but on hard it wont be half as bad as it is on expert.

Playing with a band on hard guitar, expert drums, and hard bass with me on Expert vocals, we cut it pretty close a few times (as in 970,000ish). I never used star power and only got 3 or 4 solid's so I was constantly getting it and then the other 3 were using it.... we ended up really going over a million only once we timed star power so that all three of their's were on while the vocals were singing (though I never turned mine on) and then it was easy.

I think if you are not going to have the vocals deploy their star power ever, you definitely need to make sure the other 3 all do theirs at the same time so that the vocals feels the effect from the multiplier.

That said... for us it was really hard at first because our drummer was on RB drums and his SP just kept deploying randomly and we could never time it, so it wasn't until he switched to the GH:WT drums that we finally got it our first try.

Well that kinda sucks. Its so hard to find a good vocalist and good luck if you ever happen upon them online unless you have a friend.

I remember in Rock Band I was playing with one of my friends and we got lucky with 2 other players and got 1,000,000 on some random song while doing the impossible challenge achievements together.

On another note I did get lucky and netted a a few easy band achievements using my trusty fan. I kinda pushed my luck though because I set the fan on expert and chose Orion since there are no vocals and we were all doing awesome on expert, but then it came to the end and the drummer failed.

I was hoping to get the complete a song with all on expert achievement.

That's where this site comes in handy.

Last night we were trying to get the Band v Band achievement.... we could NOT find another band that had a singer and finally I just found someone to invite. I'm guessing most people remember how cruddy GH:WT vocals are and are staying away on this game.

Also, so far an easy song for the 100% achievement is Stacked Actors. We did every instrument on Easy (beginner sometimes gets confusing after a while, haha, your effort just is gone) and Vocals on Beginner. Not sure if there are other easy ones, but that's the one we used to be lazy on.

Play battle mode (Ranked or Player) and have both players last through the song once. You replay the song again + all power ups from that point forward are "Fade to Black" power-ups. Win with the power up to unlock achievement.

great guide, but i wanted to point a couple things out:

this achievement is actually worth 10 gamerscore....not a big deal, just something i noticed.

also, you don't have to play through the whole song to get this, the fade to black powerups do come along every once in a while during the song for you to use on the other player.

It's actually much harder it seems to get it on Expert especially because of the drummer missing the combo's. I've tried to help groups of people and if one member refuses to move down to an easier difficulty to stop breaking the streak... makes it nearly impossible to make up for that.

Make sure you get the unlocked ones such as Recording Studio and Backstage. Another note, you have to actually pass the song as well. I know this because it took me forever to figure out which one I was missing and it ended up being the recording studio. I was confused however because I specifically remember playing there but I do believe it was one of the harder songs on expert and I failed it. Played there, passed the song and achievement unlocked.

While you do get the winning achievements if the opponent quits, you can only get these if, when your opponent quits, you've already scored 25,000 or more. I got The Unforgiven III after I scored over 40k, and I have yet to get The Unforgiven II, and I've been quit on twice.

The reason for this is because the final score for your opponent is reduced to 0 when they quit, and your score stays the same. Since I'd gotten 16k when my opponent quit both times, I never got the achievement.

EDIT: To get rid of all doubt, I finally got Unforgiven II after my opponent quit and I'd scored over 260k on All Nightmare Long. So it wasn't a glitch that I didn't get it before. I know it was added to the guide already, but I write this to alleviate any doubt. I'm glad I could contribute.

don't know if anyone has mentioned this...but if you win a battle mode with fade to black and any other power ups at the same time, it doesn't unlock(at least, it didn't for me). fade to black apparently has to be the only active power up when they fail, this is the only way i could get it to unlock

It's a region free release, so order it online from somewhere where it is already out and have it shipped. Unless you live in the boonies in a third world country this should be an option for you.

I think the "Stone Cold Crazy" achievement is still attainable on difficulties besides Expert. I can consistently get 55k on Medium and I know I can get the 65k needed if I can consistently get x3 multiplies in the freeforms. I do much worse on hard since I can't keep a multiplier at all when the freeforms come up.

Most of these song specific achievements are insanely hard and I keep getting close to throwing this guitar out the window. Any tips would be helpful. :)

i think it probably is too...i haven't tried for that achievement, but considering the mic checka achievement from wt was possible on medium this one probably is too....especially if you do well on the free form parts.

has anyone tried using the midi file from this post in the mic checka tutorial thread?:

also, for the mic checka one, i put my mic in between my two computer speakers and synced it up with the video from one of the other advice threads and let that youtube video do the singing for me since i'm not very consistent...i wonder if the same will be possible for this one?...

Actually the Fade to Black just has to be the last battle power you unleash.

I activated 3 in a row, with the last one being Fade to Black, and the other guy failed and I got the achievement.

Stone Cold Crazy can be done on Medium with a 99% or so, but it all depends on how good of a Free-Form you have as that's the key to scoring big points in vocals....

sorry if this is pointed out already but yesterday I was playing band quickplay trying to get the battery achievement(btw I got it with hard bass, hard guitar, hard drums(also easy with medium drums),and beginner vocals) and I was playing as bass, my brother was also on my xbox on his account playing guitar, my other xbox live account was on vocals next to a fan, and we went online to find a drummer so when we did we played battery and didnt get it the first time but my brother and my other account unlocked the tutorials achievement(i already have it) and the house jack built achievement(the one for playing at every venue)(i also already have this) (btw i was first player) so mabye since i had them already it gave them to the other accounts so if u dont have the gh:wt drum kit but can recover someones account who has the achievement and play one song on band quickplay then u should get it(make sure the achievement holder is player 1(might work any other way but thats how it was for me)

random: also I am the worst vocalist ever i couldnt beat the tutorials lol my brother had to do it for me and he got it first try(the starpower lesson(lesson 7) haha

last random note: I dont know about you guys but I LOVE this website to show u appreciate it put "I love you xbox360achievements.org" after every post on this thread, I know i will lol

crazy i love the guide but i would like to throw something out there for the expert+ achievement. you have in the guide that master of puppets and another song were the easier ones to get the achievement. i however couldnt get down the off beat bass. for those of you that are having trouble with this as well i used the song Fade to Black. there is a smaller section with off beat bass but it is manageable. i kno there is a long constant double bass at the end but the notes that you hit with it are spaced out far enough that you can time them like u were playing normal drums. its kinda hard to explain but trust me if you cant do off beat double bass this is another way to go.

like your guide. i have 805gs in the game. need online cheevies if anybody wants to boost them with me.

only hard cheevies left are battery, dyers eve on drums and stone cold crazy on mic.

need the green hell achievement, just didnt try yet.

i can do play battery with -5 notes tops on guitar. if anybody can play drums and bass we can do that achievement pretty easy. i can sing expert and play guitar expert. we could just put the singing on beginner really and hook it up to a fan so we can max out our star power. should be easy. drums and bass could play medium and we could still probably get it. hit me up on live.
Nimets.

havent actually played battery yet on this game on drums, but id be willing to give it a shot. if i cant keep a good combo, i could always step it down to hard

See, I struggled with Fade to Black (don't know why) and easily passed Whenever I May Roam. My brother was the exact opposite though..... thats why I included both because some people can play offbeat, others can't for the life of them.

I tried it on fade to black twice and the star power just didn't last long enough through the mega bass section... I just got it on Wherever I may Roam though. I did surprisingly well on most of the song considering I am mediocre at best on drums. I usually stick to Medium in the "band" games, and this game kicks my ass at medium on half the songs.

Go to a Solo Career and choose your difficulty. On the screen that follows, it has "Play Show" as the first menu choice, the 5th choice is "Band Info" choose that one and it will let you edit your band logo.

Or if you don't have a vocalist I'm pretty certain you can use "Blood and Thunder" with the fan method. Of course you need to actually have people that can PLAY Blood and Thunder on expert, but you need those no matter what song you choose ;)

Shoot, I was about to suggest the song "Orion" for the Four Horsemen achievement. But it looks like someone beat me to it. :)

-----------------------------------

Something else about the game that's NOT achievement related, but which you might consider adding to the bottom of the guide. I found myself wondering how to unlock the 4 members of Metallica so they can be chosen on the character selection screen. Well, here's how:

100 stars in Guitar career -- Kirk Hammett
100 stars in Bass career -- Rob Trujillo
100 stars in Drum career -- Lars Ulrich
100 stars in Vocal career -- James Hetfield
100 stars in Band career -- Zach Harmon *

They each cost $2000, except for Zach Harmon who is free. Also, there are 2 different versions of Zach Harmon with different outfits (both versions are unlocked simultaneously). Again, this info is NOT related to any achievements, so it's up to you whether you want to add it to the guide...

* Zach Harmon is Metallica's equipment manager. He is also Rob's bass roadie. You can see him in the movie Some Kind Of Monster (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Some_Kind_of_Monster_%28film%29), or the bonus documentary on the S&M (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%26M_%28album%29) DVD.

on the Seek & Destroy achievement - i have 6 wins in face-off, 9 in pro face-off, and 11 in Battle, for a total of 25 wins. The achievement has not unlocked. Do the 20 wins have to be in the same game type?

Then on The Struggle Within - I've gone into band quickplay a good 10 or 15 times; finished the song; and this still hasn't unlocked? I'm playing with 2 friends, myself, and the microphone up to the tv on beginner. Anyone got an idea why it's not unlocking?

for "The Four Horsemen"

"Orion" is the best choice since there are no vocals, the hardest part would be passing and finding players to play on expert.

Just got it this way!

I went online to "Band Quickplay", with my Mic plugged in & laying on the ground (as my 2nd player), set to expert. I started my Guitar up, and after a few trys I found another Xpert Guitar & Drum player, so I told them to pick Orion, and we did, and we all got it that way.

Took a couple tries for the drummer to pass the song though. We just saved all the SP for them, and they used it when needed (end of the song mostly).

================


Now, For "Green Hell", This one took me a few tries, and I think this is why:

You must "FC" those green notes (don't hit too many times (overstrum?) in between the greens).
Also, one you hit all the greens, KEEP the Rock Meter in the Green.
If it falls below green (even for a few seconds), I think it won't unlock.
For those reasons, I had to play the song a few more times than I wanted too, but I got it following those two extra steps.
Anyone else seen this?

I've tried EVERYTHING for getting the Stone Cold Crazy achievement. I think it's impossible unless you're a god or something. :(

I've tried on Medium, I ended up with like 35k.
I've tried on Hard, I ended up with 30k.
I've tried on Expert, I ended up with 25k.

Does anybody have any tips for getting this? The freeform sections don't give you as many points as people say, even with getting 3x or 4x in there, so that obviously isn't the solution.

Also, for Dyer's Eve, I can't come close to FC'ing it on Medium, and I can barely pass it on Hard. Does this mean there's no chance in hell I'll ever be getting this? :P

You probably won't get it unless you practice a LOT. The only way to score 450k on Dyer's Eve on medium is just about FCing it with a proper star power path.

As for Stone Cold Crazy, I was having problems with it until I messed around with the calibration settings. I ended up doing 100ms audio and video (I use an LCD if it matters) and found I could hit way more phrases. Also, use star power at the end of the freeform sections to get more points; go for 4-5x with constant yelling/wooing/whatever

Since the Ion drums are the same as the RB drums (to the game), it only recognizes it as that. It sucks. :(

It's not easy to play all 3 instruments (aside from fan/mic) 100% even on beginner regardless, but I'd say something slow like turn the page would be the safest.

Today I played a coop career on vocals (my profile) and a friend on bass. After we completed the career I did get the 'Nothing Else Matters' achievement but not the achievement completing the vocal career. Do I have to do a solo vocal career for this achievement?

Completing the game on COOP won't unlock the individual instrument achievements... and COOP will only unlock the achievement for the main profile.

Score 330,000 on the song Enter Sandman on guitar

Really easy song outside of Solo, and even then its not too bad. With a bad star path, you will need a 98%+, but you might be able to get it with a 96% or 97% with a good star path.

Can be done on Hard with 100% + Perfect Star Path


Does anybody know the " Perfect Star path" to this song on hard. I just FC this song on hard but I over strummed two notes which cause me to lose the multipliers.I used (in my mind) a good star path. I got 303,395 by the way. Can anyone confirm this is achievable on hard anyway just to let me know I'm not wasting my time.

Edit: I just looked at Scorehero.com and the highest score on hard was 332k so now I know this is achievable on hard.

Id say since there are no videos of ppl fcing it on hard just follow phenoms path of him playing expert. but if u can fc it on hard you should just play it on expert its much easier.

PisoSH has the top spot on hard, and he is an awesome "squeezer", so good luck on hard......

Best bet is to practice Expert and get it done.

DakidJose
04-20-2009, 09:39 PM
Can you get it without "squeezing"? I keep missing 1 note during the solo every time and it pisses me off because I'm so close. I tried on expert but the solo always gets me. Maybe I'll practice it on expert since I have no real evidence of somebody getting it on hard and might be wasting my time.

KeeJ
04-21-2009, 02:17 PM
i got it its not hard, u need 99%, missing around 10 notes in the solo should be fine the only thing u need is a perfect star path, thats all. i dont know how to write star paths so if u need it i did it like this (btw my highest score in the song is 597,865 with a 99%) (THIS IS FOR THE CREEPING DEATH ACHIEVEMENT)
all u have to remember is that when u get the star power, USE IT RIGHT AWAY!!

>get the first two star combos so half the meter is full, use it,
>fill next half and use it,
>save up till u have 3/4 of the meter and use it,
>save another 3/4 of the meter
>use as often as possible in the solo
>right after the solo u should have no star power
>save up half the meter
>there will be another star combo, then a another
>during the second one whammy everything(try not to for the green/yellow b.c they are quick and hard to whammy)
>if u whammy them u should get a full meter
>use it right when u collect the star power(doesnt have to be full)
>then right before the last triplette part there will be a star combo
>whammy both held notes as fast as possible to get the star power half full
>during the triplettes activate it but make sure u collect the last star combo of the song(at the end of the triplettes)while star power is active
>finish the song and the score should be between 580k and 600k

if u cant understand this hope it helps... sorry its a little complex to read
(this can only be done on expert difficulty)

At this point it probably doesn't matter, but I think the Roadmap should say it's a little more trickier to get 800/1000. It's rated as being 4/10 for difficulty.

I'm currently at 755/1000, and that's including Expert + on drums, and beating Expert Career. Average gamer doesn't play on Expert.

Aside from all 6 scoring achievements, I'm just missing the Tutorials, 100% a song, Band v Band, Complete a song all 4-players on Expert.

Finding a band online who all play Expert with no lobbies is not easy. And if you have to resort to trading threads on the internet, that doesn't make the game easier, it raises the difficulty.

Instead of 4/10 for 800, I think more like 6/10. For 1000/1000? I would say 10/10. That Fight Fire with Fire achievement is one of the hardest achievements in a game. It's not time consuming, you actually have to have the skill to do it.

Not all achievement players are guitar hero veterans. Saying it's 4/10 and 9/10 gives false hope. I bet the average person who plays this game, and goes for the achievements, is going to be lucky to end up with 800+

Well they finally posted the Guide into the actual Game Page itself on this site.

But there's soooo many errors. First of all, it says you need 70 stars to unlock The Thing That Should Not Be. Which is wrong, because you need 72 stars.

Then it says for the Holier Than Thou achievement to unlock Kirk Hammett, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, and Robert Trujillo. It's not specified correctly. If it means the achievements, which it does, then it should say that. But some people may think you have to unlock these characters, which happens when you get 100 stars in each respected career.

The Ecstasy of Gold makes it sound likes it's only achievable on Expert. It should note that it can be done on any difficulty.

Dyer's Eve says "Hard is the way to go". Uhh, I found it much easier to 99% on Medium, and got 453,000 :P

Stone Cold Crazy is known to be unlocked under Hard as well, not just Expert.

Battery - Wtf? Every player doesn't have to be on Expert! Expert Guitar, Hard/Expert Bass, Medium Drums, Beginner Vocals works fine.

I'm glad the guide is up, but way too many descrepancies.

It wasn't horrible! Just had some stuff that may confuse people :)

Guitar Hero games sometimes have very particular requirements for their achievements, and it's good to know for some people that it's not always required to play on Expert. I'm sure that can be discouraging to people.

W00t!!!! I just got the Creeping Death achievement on my 9th try!!!! I only practiced the slider outro, surprisingly I was able to play the solos already. I missed 7 notes and used the SP path in the guide and got 580k.

Today has been a good day. I also got Fight Fire with Fire on bass, Stone Cold Crazy on vocals, and Dyer's Eve on drums today. I got the game yesterday and got Sandman on my sightread yesterday.

Now only have to complete vocals and bass career for the full 1000 GS. When I first played Creeping Death I thought I would never get full 1k on this game, and then I just kept repeating it to see how close I could get and then bam, I got it!

PerpetualHeaven
05-30-2009, 06:41 PM
I'm having a hard time understanding this path. In activation number 3, if you activate it at the next note, it won't override star phrase number 7. So then the fourth activation isn't actually a "1", but a "2".

Anyways, I'm confused by the path. I honestly do not believe that's the optimal path at all. Not even close. I won't go into depth with the calculations, but watching the top score optimal paths and/or look at path hero's path is much better. Anyone who is going to use x360a's path is going to end up losing a lot of points. I've seen paths where people override much more and activate around 9 times as opposed to 8.

If people are getting really close to the achievement and using x360a's path, don't. Change your path and you'll probably get the achievement.

See I made the mistake of thinking that because Lemmy's a bass player it should unlock that way too, haven't even touched the vocal or drum careers yet but unlocked them and got their achievements through buying them. Big fan of Motorhead anyway so why not, just kinda disappointed that they didn't choose another song since even Lemmy hates Ace of Spades and I can think of at least 10 other songs better than that (I'd have loved playing Doctor Rock for example).

I don't think the guide for Enter Sandman is 100% accurate.. it says "98% with a bad SP path, 96-97% with a good SP path."

I had 99% with a pretty decent SP path, i only broke combo twice, (on the solo) and ended up with 316k. so, wtf. :confused:

xXKoopaKingXx
06-23-2009, 01:39 AM
For Creeping Death you just have to FC everything but the beginning solo, including the roped notes at the end and in the solo. If you can keep streak through the fast strums in the solo with SP it also helps a lot. I missed about 10 total but FCed everything but solo A and got 585k.

If you do it towards the end it won't matter as much, or during the solo, but if you miss an SP phrase or just screw up in the verses or chorus, you can fall short. The same thing happened to a friend of mine.

Complete a song on Expert + in Quickplay or Career (drums only)
Look for songs in Quickplay that have the symbol of the achievement on it, those can all be played on Expert +. These are Expert song with double bass charted in it, so I would HIGHLY advise you to have 2 pedals.

Some easy songs to try if you are struggling are:

Whenever I May Roam
Master of Puppets

To be honest its impossible to 100% a song by yourself, I mean you dont have to worry about vocals, granted. But you will have to look at 3 different highways, all with seemingly random bars across them, and you have to have both your hands and one of your feet working at the same time. How in hell are you supposed to 100% a song doing that?!

What it means is basically activating star power at all of the right moments to maximize your score, so ideally you'll hit every SP phrase and whammy whenever possible.
