After playing a few songs this morning, i have come to the conclusion that the "encore" songs are the secret notes.. Just like GH5 they have a lighter next to them.. I am not sure if this has been mentioned, but i guess we will get 490 for completing all encores?! haha at least it seems so.. i will continue to play and update!

upon review, there might be a little more to it.. I did Jackson 5 and didnt get it, but just got lily allen.. either they have another song, or you need a certain score/percent for it? we will see..

Correct, I've just gotten the achievement by playing most song in the difficulty I usually play in (Hard), but dropping down to Medium and FC'ing the songs for the few that didn't unlock on my normal play.

So it's hitting 100% of the notes in the given songs? Well I suppose that makes it a little more worthwhile.

I have at least 4 secret notes that are NOT encores
Here's my take on what to do -

Example 1 -
Secret Notes 8 - Hint: *v***s***c*
Spells 'Evenesence'
I got this one playing 'Bring Me To Life' on Hard Guitar
My score summary showed 100% notes hit on the
'Afterlife 1' section of the song

I think the secret notes require you to FC specific verses/solos
on hard guitar or bass for the song shown in the clue

Nothing seems to Unlock on Medium or lower
and the achieves are specific to certain instruments

Example 2 -
Secret Notes 18 - Hint: **y O******
Spells 'Roy Orbiston'
I got this one on 'Oh Pretty Woman' on Hard Bass
My Score summary showed 100% notes hit on Hard Bass riffs 1 & 3

Some others are -
Secret notes 9 - Hinder - Hard Guitar - Solo B
Secret Notes 17 - All American Rejects - Hard Bass - Verse 1B or 2A or 2B
Secret Notes 13 - Spice Girls - Hard Guitar - Storytime

And so on . . . . .

I have a Guide in progress which will be posted soon

EDIT
-----
Now tested on other profiles
You can use - ANY INSTRUMENT on ANY DIFFICULTY
I'm still not 100% sure which part of each song is the secret so just F/C them all

I would imagine that there is a random note in each particular song you just have to play, obviously FC'ing a song would unlock it.. I could be wrong but thats just what common sense suggests it is.

Second thing to note is you can get them all on quick play on Beginner singing or humming. yes you need to pretty much 5 star them 98% or better. I did them all in under 3 hours and got the 490 GS for collecting them all.

According to this devblog that went up over the weekend:
http://hub.guitarhero.com/dev-blog-band-hero-treasure-hunt-achievement/

You are basically correct, except it seems that there are multiple secret notes in each song (its probably a phrase like star power /etc, except not indicated). But they confirm that for each song you can do it on any instrument / any difficulty, you just have to hit all of the 'secret notes' on that instrument/difficulty.
