Complete Career Lefty and Righty

This achievement is a little glitchy, but keeping all your songs within the same "Band" should make it work properly. All you need to do is enough to get by (3/4) on easy and medium. I suggest picking an easy difficulty and going for 5 Stars on all the songs while you're there.

A little tip, switch it to lefty, and play looking into a mirror, and the notes will appear as you are used to them.

Who Needs the Power 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
200k on Cult of Personality without Star Power

The only difficulties that will net you this achievement are Hard and Expert. To do it on hard, you will need to hit most of the notes (98%). Or you can do it on expert, hitting a good percentage of the notes. Another key is using Star Power late in the song. If you can use it, and have it still on when the song ends, it will not count as being used, and you can still get the achievement.

Activate it at the silent part near the end of the song with a full bar.

Here is a guideline for what scores you need during the song if you want to make it:
Before Solo 1: 60,000
Before Solo 2: 108,000
After Solo 2: 145,000
Before Very end: (Activate Star Power) 181,000

Another tip, if you miss a note before the first Solo, restart. It'll cause less frustration in the end, and they are not very hard anyways.

Whammy Mania 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Use the Whammy Bar on every held note on Number of the Beast

First start off with some tape, and tape your whammy bar down. As long as it's not in the normal position it's fine. Now go to quick play or career, and select Number of the Beast by Iron Maiden on Easy difficulty. It can be found in the 8th (Final) tier. Now play the song through, and dont miss any held notes. The achievement should unlock when you are finished.

Star Mania 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Activate Star Power 3 times on Through the Fire and Flames on Expert

Only obtainable in Quick Play.

Again, just like stated under "Inhuman Rampage Achievement" the beginning is the hardest part. Once you get past it and are good enough, you should be able to get enough Sp Phrases to activate it 3 Times. Use it directly after you fill the meter, so that you dont miss any star notes while you're in Star Power mode.

Life of the Party 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Host Ranked Online matches and win 15 consecutive songs

This achievement seems hard but really isn't. It can be easily accomplished through quitting. Just play as you would regularly. If you win, continue, and go to your next game, if you lose, go to your dashboard or eject your disk. Dont worry about your opponent, they will still get a win. Keep doing it until you get 15 of them in a row, and move on.

Too Many to Count 25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Hit 250,000 notes in Career

This achievement is cumulative in any Career. This is equivalent to about 500 easy songs, 300-350 medium songs, 250 hard songs and 200 expert songs. Just play the game and try to keep all your songs under the same "band"

Never Gonna Spend It All 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn $350,000 in career lifetime earnings

You will have to earn $350,000 total in all your careers, just like the achievement says. The easiest way to do this, is play the first 5 songs on the hardest difficulty you can manage. You should be able to 5 star the first few expert or hard songs, and then start another band and do it again, until you have enough money. If you don't have anymore space for bands, you can delete old ones and do the same thing, and it should still count. Also the money doesnt have to be in hand all at once.

That's What Friends Are For 25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete Co-op Career

To obtain this achievement all you need to do is beat all the Setlists in Co-op. You do not need to complete every song, only enough to get to the next tier. In total you will need to play about 38. The unlocking itself is a little tricky. Only the primary account will get the achievement, and the 2nd controller aka a buddy will not get it.

100 Million!?! Gulp!?! 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn 100,000,000 points total in Career

This is a cumulative achievement, in a single Career. You will need to play a whole bunch of songs to get this one, and youre best bet is probably just to have fun playing the game and let it come. If you're really striving for it, play your best song over and over until you get it, just keep it under the same "Band".

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/393/UPgauaI=.jpg
Streaker 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn a 150 note streak in a Ranked Online Battle mode match

All this achievement is, is luck and a little bit of skill. You will need to get into a ranked battle game where you know the song relatively well. You will also need to pray that your opponent doesnt hit you with some bad power-ups and lets you finish the notes off. Just play and it should come. Try hosting and picking a song you're good at.

Tone Deaf 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Beat any song on the expert difficulty with the games sound options turned down to zero

First you will need to become good enough to beat any song on Expert. I recommend Slow Ride by Foghat, as it one of the easiest songs by far. When you are comfortable with this song start it up, and keep all your settings regular. All sounds can be fully turned up. Play the song as you normally would, but as you approach the end, whenever, the closer to the end the better, hit your start button. From their go to settings and then to sound. Change all 3 dials to read 0. Now continue the song, and play the last couple of notes, without any sound. When you finish, you will get the achievement.

Easy Rider 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete a Career on the Easy Difficulty

This should be a relatively easy one for even the starters. All I can say is practice if you cant beat it, and just keep on truckin'. You will get it with a little bit of practice.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/393/UP+ZW+4=.jpg
Medium Rare 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete Career Mode on the Medium difficulty

Here it gets a little bit harder for those of us who havent had as much time with the game as we would have wanted to. Again, practice if you have any trouble, and you will eventually get it.

Always Hard 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete Career on the Hard difficulty

Here's where practice mode may actually come in handy. If you are a skilled player, you should be able to make it through the most part of this career without a problem, but may run into some difficulties. Head to the practice mode, and slow down the fret board as much as you think is necessary. Just knowing what notes are where helps a ton, because sometimes you just cant see them all when they're coming at you.

*See "Buy a Guitar Already" for an easy achievement once this is obtained.

Right Hand of God 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete Career Mode on the Expert difficulty

Another achievement I cant really help you with, other than wishing you luck. I suggest getting Practice with the last 2 tiers of songs especially Raining Blood as most people have problems here.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/393/UP24Uls=.jpg
Solo Career 25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete all Career difficulties

If you manage to beat Expert, then its smooth sailing from there, as the other difficulties should be a piece of cake for you. Just play through all 4 of them, and you should get this achievement. Just like anything, practice makes perfect.

Buy a Guitar Already 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Play through a career on the Hard or Expert difficulty using a standard controller

This achievement is glitched, in a way, but it will benefit you. Just beat the career on Hard how you normally would. After you do, shut off your Xbox, and turn it back on with a controller. Go into the game and pretend you are going to play a song, it will unlock for you when you are in the setlist.

Obviously this can also be gotten the regular way, which may be easier for some individuals.

Big 'Ol Pile of Wins 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win 500 Online Ranked matches

Theres nothing really I can say hear, can I? Just play a lot. I suggest battle mode because it seems to be the fastest, as you can knock out opponents in seconds rather than playing the whole song through. Just keep playing online, winning as many as you can and its yours. I suggest using an easier difficulty for the Battle mode, if you go hard, you're only screwing yourself over. The shortest song in length is Mississippi Queen.

Guide to do it fastest: Host your own matches and get REALLY good at a difficult expert song, or at least the intro to TtFaF. Now Host games, and when people join, go through the menus and select Expert. This will give you about a 50% chance of your opponent choosing the same. If he does, then select the song you're good at or TtFaF. Even if you can't beat it, one of you are likely to fail within seconds. The idea is to lure people into thinking they will go expert since you are, and then you can wreck them. If they don't select expert in the menu, you can either quit out completely, or go back and choose the same difficulty as them. Keep in mind, most people think they are better than they actually are, and usually go up a difficulty online, so use it to your advantage and pick hard songs that you know.

The Long Road Ahead 100 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete all difficulties in Career, buy everything from the shop and complete 100 online matches

This achievement is even harder then it seems.

See "Burnin' a Hole in my Pocket" and "Solo Career", do both of these and play 100 ranked games online, and one of the hardest achievements will be yours.

Meet Your Maker 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Beat one of the creators of Guitar Hero 3 at their own game

The achievement is not what it actually says. It is rather a viral achievement, like any other. Beat someone with it and you get it. Lose with it, and you give it away. A large percentage of the players already have this, so just hop online and win a game, and it can be yours too.

Bronze Streaker 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn a 100 note Streak in Career or Quick Play

Any song on any difficulty will do. Just get a little bit of practice and get comfortable with the guitar. Play an easy song if you're really struggling.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/393/UP6mefw=.jpg
Silver Streaker 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn a 250 note streak in Career or Quick Play

Now here it gets a little harder. 250 is not a lot, but may get frustrating if you get close many times. Try to pick easier songs have a lot of rhythm based notes, where all you need to do is strum at the right time, and keep hitting the same notes.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/393/UPxrk9Q=.jpg
Gold Streaker 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn a 500 note streak in Career or Quick Play

Many of the easier songs can do the trick (Tier 7 or 8) and most of the medium ones can do it as well. I suggest a harder easy song such as One, or Before I forget or an easier medium song such as Story of my Life (704), or Sunshine of my love (501).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/393/UPsEkgU=.jpgStreak Master 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn a 1000 note streak in Career or Quick Play

Here it becomes quite a bit of a bigger number from the last one. But there is an easy way out. Through the Fire and Flames on easy contains about 1100 notes. So learn the song and try your best for every note. It also works with a handful of Hard and expert songs if anyone wants to do that... Pick a song that you are most comfortable with, that has enough notes, and then get all the notes...

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/393/UPhcmuw=.jpg
First Big Score 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Score 250,000 on a song

Your first opportunity for this achievement will come early in the medium career. I personally did it on "Story of my Life" by Social Distortion, located in the 4th block of the 1st tier. If you are finding it hard to get it, dont worry you get another chance later on in the career, a lot later. The next doable song for this achievement is One by Metallica. It is the last song on the 8th tier before the final boss battle. You should be able to easily shed out 275,000 if you're decent at the song, and use star power in the right moments. After a couple of plays through you should be able to get it. If both of these are just out of the question, then you can try TtFaF on Easy, and get a good percentage of the notes.

Earn 5 stars on all songs on the Medium difficulty

MUST be done in Career!
This is rather an easy achievement. If you are an familiar player with the other games, than you should be able to get this achievement without breaking a sweat. I personally played medium career through once and only went back for two songs. Some songs may become frustrating as you fail them over and over, but you have to practice them. I recommend playing them at a slower speed in practice if you cant get the strumming right.

Buy all the Guitars from the shop

Theres two basic ways you can do this. One takes days of practice and quite some skill, the other takes maybe 3 minutes, and a brain the size of a peanut. Doing it the normal way, you will have to buy all the guitars including the 16 you get for beating difficulties, and 5 starring them; Career and Co-op. Entering the "Unlock All" cheat, is the other way. See "Got 'em All" for the cheat.

There are 26 total songs to buy. At $500 each, it'll cost you $13,000 to buy them all. This roughly translates to 5 Starring just under 3 tiers on medium. Or about 2 on hard. Just save up enough money and buy them all.

You can also enter the "Unlock All Song" Cheat or "Unlock All" Cheat, see "Got 'em All" for the cheat.

There are 5 total characters to buy from the shop:
Tom Morello ($10,000)
Slash ($10,000)
Lou ($15,000)
Grim Reeper ($10,000)
God of Rock ($20,000)

You will need to buy all 5 of them to unlock the achievement. At first only 2 will be available. Beat the game and the 3 bosses will be available for purchase. They will cost a pretty penny though, $65,000. One play through medium, 5 stars on everything will bank you about $45,000. You can do the rest of the math. Just play, and buy them when you feel that its time.

Or, of course enter the "Unlock All" Cheat:

Im not even going to recommend a song. It will work on anything. If you're having trouble getting it, go on any of the first tier songs on easy, and you should be able to get it in no time.

Earn a 1000 note streak in a Co-op match

Seems hard but even less skilled players will easily be able to obtain this achievement. Play the song "When We were Young" by The Killers on medium difficulty. The song has 1047 notes, so will have to play the bulk of it for the achievement, but as long as you can keep in rhythm, it is fairly easy.

Streak Masters 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn a 2000 note streak in a Co-op match

This achievement is easiest in Through the Fire and Flames on easy. Each section has a little over 1,000 notes. Just practice them, and pair up, but dont make any mistakes! Another possibility is Erten Was Wir Saen (DLC) with easy lead, and medium bass, which is also quite easy. Story of my Life on Expert (Both players) has a total of 2042 notes, and is one of the easier expert songs. Thanks to Birky for the tip.

Score 1,000,000 on any song in a Co-op match

This will be one of the hardest co-op achievements. You pretty much need to do Through the Fire and Flames, One or The Devil went down to Georgia or The Pretender on Expert (Both) and you cant miss many notes. (95%) And if you have access to downloadable content then Erten Was Wir Saen is also an option, but you're going to need someone who can almost do Hard or expert very well.

You will need to complete all the Co-op Career songs and the 14 extra songs viewed after the setlist. You will first need to unlock them by going through Career by yourself. You and your friend have to be a least familiar with the game to get this, so get crackin'.

100% a song in a Co-op match

Again, similar to the one in single player. Just pick a song you're comfortable with, and play it through without screwing up. I suggest a song like When you were Young by the Killers on medium or easy, because its all rhythm, and has barely any "skillful" hand movements.

Get an 8X multiplier in a Co-op game

This is a deadly simple achievement. Just get a 4x multiplier in Co-op (By stringing 30 notes together) and activate star power with your guitar or controller at the same time. It will unlock right away. It may take a few tries, but really, does it need explaining?

Half Mill' Club 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Score 500,000 on any song in a Co-op match

I recommend playing One by Metallica; both on medium for this achievement. Again, its all about the practice. You should be able to get at least the first half of the song without missing a note, as the beginning is relatively basic, if you've seen it before.

Burnin' a Hole in Your Pocket 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Buy everything from the store

Now this is almost an unachievable achievement for most of us. You will have to buy everything, including the items unlocked through completing various Careers. You get one Guitar for every difficulty, 5 Stars on every difficulty and for Co-op careers. You will have to unlock all of those before you can buy them, and you can get this achievement when you do. All I can do is wish you good luck. But wait! Theres always a cheaters way... Enter the "Unlock All" cheat found in the achievement help in "Got 'em All" to obtain this achievement as well.

The Inhuman Achievement 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete Through the Fire and Flames on Expert

The beginning of this song is the hardest part by far. The really good players can beat it on a couple of tries through once they learn the start of it. Study the beginning and play it in practice a couple of times, if you think you have what it takes. If you feel you have the skill, go for it. Theres not much I can say to help.

You can always try it with a friend, and have colours assigned for it to be easier. :P

Also, i'm finding that if host a battle mode game and wait for somebody to come in choose easy/difficulty, then if they pick hard or expert than pick TTFAF, they'll fail right away usaully, giving you an easy win.

You have to play Co-Op Career. The encore songs are different for Co-Op Career and they aren't available until you play them in Career.

Maka, you may want to add that Guitar Wizard and Backup Hero require you to unlock the missing songs from Solo Career and play those as Co-Op to get these two achievements. Completing just all of the Co-Op Career songs didn't give it to me, we had to do the 14 missing songs as well.

Earn a 1000 note streak in a Co-op match

Seems hard but even less skilled players will easily be able to obtain this achievement. Play the song When we were young by The Killers on medium difficulty. The song has 1047 notes, so will have to play the bulk of it for the achievement, but as long as you can keep in rhythm, it is fairly easy.



You can also do this on easy on Number of the beast. It has 1018 cant remember exactly but it is over 1000.

Earn a 2000 note streak in a Co-op match

i havent gotten this yet but i would recommend playing TFaF on Easy for it. The lead has 1102 notes and the rhythm has 1013 notes so you'll have to play almost the whole song to get it.

and if you're just going for solo 1k NS, i think TFaF on easy is also the ideal choice.


can anyone confirm that for 100million career points, only your scores for solo career is counted? i believe it would make sense if your co-op scores are added in as well, but then again, alot of things in this game don't really make sense..

Does anyone know what's up with the Hendrix Reborn achievement? Do you actually have to play every song on a certain difficulty with lefty flip on to unlock it, or actually start a new career or what. I ask cause my friend played through the first tier on easy right handed, but i wanted to use easy to finish on lefty, but since those songs are already done, do I have to do them again and then just play the rest of career, or just play the songs until the end of the songlist? Or maybe you can just beat lou on lefty for it to count? I'm really confused about this and just seeing if someone knows before i spend a couple hours doing this to find out.

I don't have enough yet to buy all the guitars, characters nor all the items just yet. But I did buy all the songs and kept my money and lost all the songs but gained the achievement. I Simply bought all the songs and achievement unlocked then I DID NOT back out of the store I used the guide button to send my back to Dashboard and started back up with my money still and no bought songs.

I thought this would be helpful to all those out there like me that won't be getting a lot of cash since I can't beat any Expert songs.

This achievement is complete bullshit, I beat every song on easy as lefty and completed every other difficulty on righty, and I get no hendrix achievement.

Wow, they really made these annoying to get this time around. And not having online career co-op makes these 10 times more annoying and difficult to get than they would be if it had online. Not everyone knows someone IRL who can even pass expert songs, letalone 5-star them.

That's a lot of peoples gripe with them. I have someone that can Co-Op with me and could probably beat expert, but neither of us will ever 5* expert.

Great guide already, just a couple of suggestions for a couple of the achievements.


The Long Road Ahead 100
For this achievement you must five star all difficulties. This is because in order to buy everything from the store you must unlock the guitars from five staring each individual difficulty. Also you must finish 100 games online.


Meet Your Maker 20
This is an infection type achievement, so you don't actually have to beat a meeker, only someone who already has it. Many people have it already so just ask around or check THIS (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=43475)thread or THIS (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=43641)one.


Streak Masters 20
If you are like me and can't stand sitting through TtFaF on easy then there is an alternative. "Story of my Life" on X/X has 2042 notes. It is a really easy, repetitive song with a simple solo and repetitive bass line.


Higher Than Most 20
To get this you must get 700,000 points or more in a co-op song. An easy way to do this is either "Stricken" or "One" on X/X. Stricken does not allow much room for error but is shorter. Also you must use star power correctly. One is a lot harder but is also much longer and so there is much more room for error. You can get about 900,000 on One.

Back Up Hero 10
For this and Guitar Wizard on the first player will get the achievement. Also you must beat all of the unlock songs.

I played through every song on easy with the lefty flip, but no achievement, which bugs the hell outta me.

Also, it's not to hard to get 1 million on One Co-op X/X, me and my brother got 970k and weren't doing that great.

I beat N0LuckJustSkill last night and got the acheivement for Meet Your Maker. He didn't have the achievement so I'm assuming that he was a creator? Also I let my friend win in a match and he got the Meet Your Maker achievement. I'll just put that out so people know how it works.

Songs possible to obtain 500k:
Expert:
- Holiday in Cambodia
- Cherub Rock
- Before I Forget
- Stricken
- Knights of Cydonia
- Number of the Beast
- One
- Take This Life
- The Way it Ends
- Through the Fire and Flames

Hard:
- Number of the Beast
- One
- Through the Fire and Flames

Songs possible to obtain 750k:
Expert:
- Through the Fire and Flames


These are the ONLY songs. Medium will not get you 500k, even with an upper bound score on TTFaF (unconfirmed) you will end up with 497k.

I saw on the "Buy a Guitar Already" achievement in the guide says to beat hard mode and turn off the xbox and boot it up with a standard xbox controller and go into hard mode and you will have it unlock for you. Well I beat hard and went back in like it said (w/ the xbox controller) and I didn't get the achievement. I even beat a song with it and it still didn't unlock. If you have any other suggestions let me know. If not I'm just going to say screw it and forget about the achievement. I have to beat career mode way too many times as it is to get the other achievements, I'd rather not play with a regular xbox controller.

The way i got it was, I had previously beat the career on easy and medium on my main band, made a new band an did the lefty flip career on it an got the achievement. Just gotta make sure that your gettin the cut scenes in between sets. Hope that helps out some.

You can spend it, the game keeps track of the total money you've earned. I'm not sure of exactly how much money can potentially be earned, but you'll get that achievement at some point while beating and 5*ing all 4 difficulties on single player and co op.

I was simply wondering if you play TTFATF on expert pro face off, it if counts towards the achievement? I wasn't sure but knowing the glitchiness that is GH3 achievements you never know. If not I guess I will just eventually pass the damn intro and beat it. The intro is the only thing keeping me from completing it.

Hey guys, I just got the 'Meet your Maker' achievement in an online co-op game. The guy I was playing with had it, and when the song was finished it unlocked for me. Perhaps another glitch? Or maybe this doesn't have to be done in battle or face off.

Enlightened Guitarist: Gold Star 20 Songs on Expert

Ok, this is gonna take some work if you arent amazing. To get gold stars you must hit 100% of the notes in a song. The easiest way for me to FC (Full Combo) a song is to turn on hyperspeed. It may not work for all but it works for me. Here is a list of songs that I feel are possible for this achievement that I have myself FC'ed:

Slow Ride
Talk Dirty To Me
Hit Me With Your Best Shot
Story of My Life
Rock And Roll All Nite
Mississippi Queen
School's Out
Sunshine Of Your Love
Barracuda
Bulls On Parade
When You Were Young
Miss Murder (Havent gotten it yet because i cant bring myself to play it. Def.
Possible though)
Lay Down
Paint It Black
Paranoid
Anarchy In The U.K.
My Name Is Jonas
Even Flow
Same Old Song And Dance
La Grange
The Metal
3's & 7's
Closer
Prayer Of The Refugee
Radio Song
Ruby

Hendrix Reborn: Complete Career Lefty and Righty
For this achievement basically you have to complete one career righty and one lefty. So basically just beat medium/hard/expert on righty and then just complete all the songs in the easy career with lefty flip enabled. I did this with a gigantic mirror, but not everyone has access to that.

Who Needs The Power: Score 200k On Cult of Personality without star power
This achievement really isnt bad. You either have to basically FC this on hard to get it or you can get it on expert with practice. Just try to hit everything else and hold a decent combo in the solos and you should get this no problem.

Whammy Mania: Use the whammy bar on every held note in Number of the Beast
2 things: Tape, Easy. You will get this no problem

Star Mania: Activate star power 3 times on Through the Fire and Flames on expert.
Ok, this isnt as bad as you think. If you make it through the intro, just build the meter till you can activate it, do that 3 times or more and even if you fail the song the achievement still unlocks. This achievement MUST BE DONE IN QUICK PLAY.

Life of the Party: Host Ranked Online Matches and win 15 consecutive songs
This is pretty straight forward, just host a match, pick the difficulty you're best at and pick you're best song. Do this 15 times and you should have it. If you lose a match you must start over.

Search And Destroy: Join Ranked Online Matches and win 15 consecutive songs
This one is hard because you're at the mercy of your opponent. If you aren't good at alot of songs i wouldn't join matches that are 1 song because odds are your opponent is going to pick his/her best song. 15 times and you should have it, again if you lose you start over.

Too Many To Count: Hit 250,000 Notes in Career
This will just come in time, if you play like me, you already have it lol. Just every song you play IN CAREER MODE adds to the bank.

Never Gonna Spend It All: Earn $350,000 in lifetime career earnings
Basically 5 starring ever career mode in both solo and co-op will net you this one. There is just no other way i can see it

Thats What Friends Are For: Complete Co-op Career
Exactly as the achievement says, just complete one of the co-op careers whether it be easy/medium/hard/expert and the achieve will unlock.

Back Up Hero: Complete all songs as the back up guitarist
This means play all songs in the co-op career and all of the unlock songs from beating said career as either bass or rhythm. DOES NOT DEPEND ON DIFFICULTY.

Guitar Wizard: Complete Co-op as the lead guitarist
Basically the same as before but play all songs as lead

100 Million!?! Gulp!?!: Earn 100,000,000 million points total in career
From what I understand it is a cumulative bank like the 250k note count. If you play TTFAF 200 times and get 500k each time, you should unlock this. But most players wont do that so you will just get it over time.

Streaker: Earn a 150 Note Streak in any Ranked online battle match.
Really easy to do, save your first power and use it to prevent your opponent from getting any further ones and then just combo along. It must be a ranked match and it will unlock upon completion of the 150th note.

Tone Deaf: Beat any song on the expert difficulty with the games sound options turned down to zero
Go into the options menu and turn the audio completely to zero then go play slow ride or hit me with your best shot on expert mode. Upon completion of the song the achievement will unlock.

Easy Rider: Complete the easy career
Exactly as it says. Will unlock after the battle with Lou

Medium Rare: Complete the medium career
Again, read the chieve. Will unlock after the battle with Lou

Always Hard: Complete the hard career
For the third time, exactly what it says. Will unlock after the battle with Lou

Solo Career: Complete all career difficulties
Complete each solo career on easy/medium/hard/expert. The achievement will unlock after the battle with Lou on the final career.

Button Masher: Win 15 consecutive ranked online matches with a standard controller
Good Luck with this. I got mine kinda cheap, i went into battle mode and picked easy while others picked expert and then just did Cult of Personality and unloaded in the solo. You can do it that way or the honest way.
Buttons:
Green Fret: LT
Red Fret: LB
Yellow Fret: RB
Blue Fret: RT
Orange Fret: A
Whammy Bar: Left Analog Stick
Star Power: Back Button

Buy A Guitar Already: Play through the career on hard or expert using the standard controller
This is gonna be a pain when they patch the glitch. Look above for when that happens but until then just beat the career normally and then go into the dashboard with your standard controller. Go back into the game and select that career and the achievement will unlock at the set list. Must be Hard or Expert.

Big Ol' Pile of Wins: Win 500 Ranked Online Matches
This one will just take a long time. Basically play online until it unlocks. Battle Mode 1 song tends to go the fastest.

The Long Road Ahead: Complete all careers, buy everything from the shop, and complete 100 online matches
This ones a doozy. All careers means all solo AND coop careers. You cant buy everything from the shop UNTIL you 5 star all solo and coop careers. The 100 online matches ALSO INCLUDES PLAYER MATCHES AND ARE NOT WINS JUST MATCHES.

Meet Your Maker: Beat one of the creators of Guitar Hero at their own game
This is a viral achievement so once one person gets it, everyone will get it. Just basically beat anyone who has this achievement in a ranked or player match and will unlock at the stats screen.

Right Hand of God: Complete the expert career
This one is a pain for most because of two reasons: Raining Blood and Devil Went Down to Georgia. Alls i can say is practice. Raining Blood is NOT that bad, the spider crawl is easily fc'ed with practice and everything else after that is pretty much just green. As for Devil Went Down To Georgia, if you can survive long enough, during Johnny's solo you get wayyyy more powers then the devil so just unload on him then. Achievement Unlocks after the battle with Lou.

Bronze Streaker: Earn a 100 note streak in career or quick play.
This is REALLY easy. It can be done on almost every song on any difficulty. Achievement will unlock upon completion of the 100th note.

Silver Streaker: Earn a 200 note streak in career or quick play
See "Bronze Streaker." Achievement will unlock upon completion of the 200th Note.

Gold Streaker: Earn a 500 note streak in career or quick play
All of the later songs in the career probably can net you this on medium/hard/expert. Almost all of the early songs can grant you this in Expert. Achievement will unlock upon completion of the 500th Note.

Streak Master: Earn a 1000 Note Streak in career or quick play
I did this while FC'ing Even Flow but you probably could do this on later songs on the expert career not to mention hard mode. Achievement will unlock upon completion of the 1000th note.

First Big Score: Score 250,000 points on a song
This is pretty simple any song on expert mode can net you this besides Mississippi Queen or School's Out. Not to mention songs later in the hard career. Achievement Will Unlock at the stats screen.

Half a Mil': Earn 500,000 points on a song
Same as before only a little more challenging. Songs on expert include: Holiday In Cambodia, Before I Forget, Stricken, Number of the Beast, One, or Through the Fire and Flames. Achievement will unlock at the stats screen.

Now Thats Impressive: Score 750,000 points on a song
This one is the pain of all pains. Congrats go to iamchris4life btw for actually achieving this. The only song possible at the moment is Through The Fire and Flames and basically REQUIRES an FC up until the solo. Not to mention the need for an AMAZING star power path. If you have any questions contact iamchris4life because he is a god.

Axe Grinder: 5 Star all songs on easy
5 star the easy career. Pretty Straight forward. Achievement will unlock at the stats screen of the last song.

Rock Guru: 5 star all songs on medium
5 star the medium career. A little harder than Axe Grinder but still nothing spectacular. Achievement will unlock at the stats screen of the last song.

soldat329x
11-07-2007, 02:12 AM
Shredder: 5 star all songs on hard
5 star the hard career. This is a little difficult but nothing compared to expert mode. The only songs that should potentially give you trouble is raining blood and knights of cydonia. Take them into practice and you should be alright. Achievement will unlock at the stats screen of the last song.

Guitar Hero: 5 star all songs on expert
Ok, this is one of the hardest ones in the game only because of 3 songs. These include Raining Blood, Knights of Cydonia, and Before I Forget. Raining Blood by far is the worst. You need to get WELL aquainted with this song if you are ever gonna 5 star it. There are the rapid triplets followed as equally fast by the spider crawl. The rhythm for the part after the spider crawl is very difficult to get accustomed to so take every part of that song into practice if you are unable to do it. Knights of Cydonia is more annoying than hard. Its like misirlou on steroids because the rapids are ridiculous and then it is also on sort of an offbeat. Before I Forget can give you a problem if you arent good at Three Chord switches. Again, if you take these into practice you should be able to pull it off. Achievement will unlock at the stats screen of the last song.

Perfectionist: 100% a song
Really straight forward. Go play Slow Ride on easy. Achievement will unlock at the stats screen.

Ready to Rock: Complete the tutorial
Go to training then go through each of the four tutorials. Achievement will unlock upon completion of the 4th tutorial.

Axe Collector: Buy All Guitars from the shop
Pretty straight forward. INCLUDES ALL UNLOCKABLES TOO. Which means you wont be getting this one until you 5 star all of the careers solo and coop. Achievement will unlock upon purchase of the last one.

Track Master: Buy All songs from the shop
Pretty straight forward. Purchase all bonus tracks, does not include Through the Fire and Flames. Achievement will unlock upon purchase of the last one.

Got Em' All: Buy all characters from the shop
This includes Tom Morello, Slash, and Lou the Devil all of which are unlocked by beating them. You also much purchase the God of Rock and the metal dude. Achievement will unlock upon purchase of the last one.

A Couple of Streakers: Earn a 200 note streak in a co-op match
See "Gold Streaker"

Two Timer: Earn a 500 note streak in a co-op match
See "Gold Streaker"

Dynamic Duo: Earn a 1000 note streak in a co-op match
See "Streak Master"

Streak Masters: Earn a 2000 note streak in a co-op match
I did this on Through the Fire and Flames on easy which has a total of 2122 notes in it. That is the easiest choice.

Millionaire Club: Earn 1,000,000 points in a co-op match
I personally feel One is the easiest song to achieve this on but its also possible in Number of the Beast and Through the Fire and Flames. As long as you can hold a decent combo, you should be alright. No where near as hard of a chieve as it was in GH2.

Higher Than Most: Earn 750,000 points in a co-op match
See "Millionaire Club"

Easy Duo: 5 star all songs in the easy co-op career
See "Axe Grinder." Includes unlocked tracks, not bonus

Medium Duo: 5 star all songs in the medium co-op career
See "Rock Guru." Includes unlocked tracks, not bonus

Hard Duo: 5 star all songs in the hard co-op career
See "Shredder." Includes unlocked tracks, not bonus

Living Legends: 5 star all songs in the expert co-op career
See "Guitar Hero." Includes unlocked tracks, not bonus

Leaders of the Pack: 100% a song in a co-op match
See "Perfectionist"

Two By Four: Get an 8x multiplier in a co-op match.
Get a 40 note streak and then activate star power.

Half' Mill Club: Earn 500,000 points in a co-op match
See "Millionaire Club" or "Half a Mil'"

Burnin' A Hole In Your Pocket: Buy Everything from the shop.
Exactly as it says. Includes all unlockables.

The Inhuman Achievement: Complete Through the Fire and Flames on expert.
Exactly as it says. I would go about telling you HOW to beat the song, but i cant make you play better. So im just going to say that if you cant make it through the intro, practice. Save your star power for the solo if need be. Thats all i can say.

SECRET ACHIEVEMENTS
Tail Between Your Legs: Refuse a boss battle
Go to any boss battle and instead of accepting, decline.

Blowin' It: Fail any song 10 times in a row.
Selfexplanitory

Almost got it: Fail any song after 90% completion
Selfexplanitory

Streak Masters 20
If you are like me and can't stand sitting through TtFaF on easy then there is an alternative. "Story of my Life" on X/X has 2042 notes. It is a really easy, repetitive song with a simple solo and repetitive bass line.

FWIW, if you don't have expert-level talent, you may find it a little bit easier to get the "buy all X from the shop" achievements if you have multiple bands. (Obviously this doesn't count "buy all guitars", because you won't unlock them all without a cheat if you don't beat the game on Expert.)

When you purchase an item, it's available to all bands in your saved game, so you can start multiple bands and use cash from one for songs, cash from another toward characters, and so on.

Whammy Mania 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Use the Whammy Bar on every held note on Number of the Beast

First start off with some tape, and tape your whammy bar down. As long as it's not in the normal position it's fine. Now go to quick play or career, and select Number of the Beast by Iron Maiden on Easy difficulty. It can be found in the 8th (Final) tier. Now play the song through, and dont miss any held notes. The achievement should unlock when you are finished.



didnt unlock for me when i taped down the whammy bar and i heard every note i hit because they sounded off from the whammy bar changing the tone....any ideas?

Anyone else having trouble getting the co-op achievements? Me and my girlfriend have been playing through the co-op career, and everything is fine, but her profile won't receive any achievements, I just keep getting them. Like, we've done 200 note streaks no problem, and yet I am the only one getting the "Couple of Streakers" achievement. Anybody else have this issue?

I have a tip for the 100 million points achievement.

If you're like me and hate waiting it out as you play, sign up to GuitarHero.com. Many here are already signed up. If you go to your account page, choose Campaign in place of Career.


It will show your total score for each difficulty in your career, if it is up to date and set up right.

So add up all your total scores and you'll see how far you are from 100 million.

It's wrong though, it's not accumulative.

It just adds up the highest scores for the main setlist songs. It doesn't count Bonus or Downloaded and it doesn't accumulate everything to a total.

I would assume the achievement is only for the main setlist though.

I can confirm it though, my combined score across all 8 careers excluding bonus songs and DLC is 92,532,242. Meaning that if I play through all the unlockables and DLC on expert, it should give me the achievement, if it does count that is.

For Never Gonna Spend It All, the money is cumulative. What I did is...

1st band- 5* Easy and Meduim, 5* most of Hard, and 40/42 songs through Expert

2cd band through 5th band- Just complete the first 3 tiers on Hard and Expert. If you 5* the majority, the achievement should unlock. If not, then just keep going through your other bands.

Good luck :woop:

I'm not sure about that, but I'm saying you can't look at "Career Score" for the achievement's progress, it is not accumulative like the achievement.

Simply test it yourself, like I did:

I went into Hard. My Career Score said "9,787,947". I went and played Raining Blood and beat it with a score of 140k.

After continuing it and the progress saving, I looked at my Career Score again. It still said "9,787,947" so it does not accumulate all your scores. It only counts the highest of all your scores, which is not what the achievement does.

But the achievement is not acucumaltive, I would 200+ million, it's all your scores together.

This is without a doubt one of the more difficult achievements in the game, and that's saying something.

Stupid question and I think it was posted here but with the Hendrix achievement, if I already beat the game on easy, do I have to start another band and beat it again on easy or can I use my same band and just play all the songs with the lefty flip on?

From what its sounding like, I would have to do another band....

Thanks.

-The Devil went Down to Georgia: Lead 93% Rhythm 93%

If anyone is having any serious problems with the intro to Through the Fire and Flames... i have an ingenious solution. Tie an elastic band around the green button and tap the rest. This eliminates the quick shifts by letting the index finger rest on the red, rather then stay on the green. The elastic can be easily removed during "Cold Winter Morning."

killerharu45
11-26-2007, 06:31 AM
Heres another recommendation:

I, and a lot of other people I assume, cannot stand playing Through the Fire and Flames on easy all the way through. I just got the 1000 note streak on Stricken on Hard. It is extremely easy for those who are decent - good on Expert.

P.S. Stricken has 1026 notes

Another: For 2000 note streak in coop, you can do Stricken as well. With the guitar on Hard and bass on Expert. The bass is very easy with no chords. It should have 2020 notes

100 Million achievement doesn't have to be in the same band.

It my first band, I racked up a lot of points because I'd 5*ed everything except for 3 of the Bonus songs, and I play a lot of DLC. I constantly play my first band and get lots and lots in it.

Then a while ago, I started up a new band and started playing through the career anew so I could get more money for the Never Gonna Spend It All achievement.

I just beat the Devil a minute ago, in the new band, and it gave me the 100 Million after the song finished. Take note that in this new band, I've only played the main setlist, and each song in it only once.


So I believe it combines your score across all bands.

This will be one of the hardest co-op achievements. You pretty much need to do Through the Fire and Flames, One or The Devil went down to Georgia or The Pretender on Expert (Both) and you cant miss many notes. (95%)

I've also heard that Ernten Was Wir Säen is a good song to try and do a million, although as the other songs you need to almost perfect it.

I've never tried. I would amagine it would be possible. But your best bet would probably be One. If both of you can put up over 500k on it, you should have no problem at all getting 1 mil.

I've never tried. I would imagine it would be possible. But your best bet would probably be One. If both of you can put up over 500k on it, you should have no problem at all getting 1 mil.

We have both 5 starred it but not at 500K. I checked scorehero and the high scores for both those songs are around 1.2 mil for ONE and 1.60 mil for the German song. I'll try to do the
German song first.

After playing some more co-op last night I now understand why only the profile that loads the game, and therefore owns the save file, gets all the co-op Achievements while player two only gets some. It's because player two is just that and this game doesn't prompt you or support the signing in of player two as a player who's data is also logged in the save file, this is confirmed by the fact that you can play as player two without the need to sign in as any additional profile, not even "Guest", and if you select the various difficulties it always says you've completes 0 of 0 songs or it stays the same as player one's progress. You can sign in though and will earn Achievements for scores and note streaks, but not co-op perfection and probably not the play as lead and play as backup until you launch your own career, which captures unique save data for this player, because it doesn't record player two's lead/backup progress in player one's save file. The crazy thing about this is it means you have to play co-op career four times for two players to get both lead and backup Achievements.

Despite me being signed into my Gold account the entire time while I was player two I only got Achievements for scores and note streaks and wasn't awarded the co-op perfection one. We should finish the career tonight so I can then confirm my suspicions about the lead and backup ones.

For the 'Hendrix Reborn' achievement, you can play across two bands, ie/ one career on righty easy (and possibly cont on to med and hard etc) and another on lefty easy. At least, thats how I got it.

Earn 100,000,000 points total in Career

This is a cumulative achievement, in a single Career. You will need to play a whole bunch of songs to get this one, and youre best bet is probably just to have fun playing the game and let it come. If you're really striving for it, play your best song over and over until you get it, just keep it under the same "Band".

We didn't finish the career because we couldn't be bothered to play the 14 or so bonus tracks, but player one got That's What Friends Are For after the last encore with one setlist track unplayed.

It's annoying this game doesn't support player two's data when a profile is used. It's a lot of time wasted and a lot of rubbish songs to play just to get lead and backup for two players.

200k on Cult of Personality without Star Power

The only difficulties that will net you this achievement are Hard and Expert. Do it it on hard, you will need to hit most of the notes. Or you can do it on expert, hitting a good percentage of the notes. Another key is using Star Power late in the song. If you can use it, and have it still on when the song ends, it will not count as being used, and you can still get the achievement.
For this, can you do it on an online co-op game?

Me and my friend finally got around to playing the german one but can only get about 985K with a few dumb mistakes. But were playing co op career on a co op career marathon to get all achievements for both of us (Right now 3/8 careers in two days, combined with school) We played One with Expert Lead and Medium rhythm and got 850K so I am sure with Expert on Rhythm we can get a million easy with all of the extra rhythm notes in the solo.

Many of the easier songs can do the trick and most of the medium ones can do it as well. I suggest a harder easy song such as One, or an easier medium song such as Story of my Life (704), or When We Were Young.

Just a note on this one: as mentioned by the OP in the thread below, When We Were Young has only 485 notes on medium. You can't get this achievement on that song at that difficulty.

To get this achievement, follow these steps:

1) Complete the game on any difficulty with Righty
2) Start a new band and complete the game on Easy with the lefty flip on.
3) Be happy that you got an annoying achievement

Thats how I got it. You don't have to do all the songs; just power through missing the difficult ones (Raining Blood on lefty? No thanks). You probably can do with the Righty-Med and Lefty-Easy method on the same band, but I didn't do it that way so I can't comment.
