Diamond Challenges Guide

Here is a list of every gig, the requirements to get Diamond, and the best or easiest way to get Diamond.

This is to compliment my achievement guide. If you find any errors or have better tips please reply so I can make the proper revisions.

General Tips
-You CAN use cheats, this will not disable achievements. Have No Fail and Auto Kick On always. Use the All HOPO's and Always Slide cheats when needed, or if you feel it can help you get more points.

-If possible, get help. Either have 3 extra bandmates help you by filling their SP meters all the way up (with any extra spilling over and feeding into your meter), or have a more experienced player try the challenge via Xbox Live. The challenges unlock for everyone in the band/lobby. They make challenges easier, but are of course not required. Your bandmates can consist of mic(s) playing on Beginner in front of a fan which helps for Points/SP refilling challenges (see next tip)

-You cannot play challenges on Beginner, but for Single Instrument challenges, your bandmates CAN. Band Challenges CANNOT have anyone on Beginner.

-Band challenges where you must maintain a 2x multiplier for "xxx" amount of seconds can be easily done with only two people, but if you have 3 or 4 that can keep a streak on Easy it helps in case someone happens to mess up. Everyone use Star Power if you miss a note to bring the Band Multiplier back up

-You can use your DLC or Imported songs for the Your Choice challenges. "Band on the Run" is pretty easy and "Freebird" is a nice long song

-For Whammy challenges, it will be impossible to get Diamond using the Xplorer guitar. Use or get access to a different guitar for these challenges, otherwise you can settle for Gold/Platinum for now

-The songs are in order of their listing in career. Use the "Find" feature on your browser to get to what your looking for quicker

-A great tip for chord challenges; turn on Always Slide. Since chords can't be "tapped", they will stick out compared to the dim single tap notes.


The 13th Rail

Blur - "Song 2"
Band, 2,000,000 Points
Expert Guitar on this song is pretty easy, try getting four people to play Guitar.

Scars On Broadway - "They Say"
Drums, 245 Snares
Turn on No Fail and strictly concentrate on snares

Beck - "Gamma Ray"
Bass, 695 Up Strums
Must be done on Expert

Coldplay - "In My Place"
Guitar, Whammy 80 secs
Can be done on Medium difficulty with the Always Slide cheat on

Gorillaz - "Feel Good Inc."
Vocals, 120 secs w/ 4x mutiplier
Play on Easy

Bob Dylan - "All Along The Watchtower"
Drums, 325 snares
Play on Expert+, turn on No Fail, and concentrate strictly on snares

The Rolling Stones - "Sympathy For The Devil"
Band, Secs w/ 2X Mutiplier
Play on Easy, recommended with two or more guitarists

ESP Guitar Challenge
Guitar, 400 Chord Strums
Pick “Song 2” by Blur on Expert or "All Along The Watchtower" by Bob Dylan. They are repeitive and mostly chords.

Club Boson

The Raconteurs - "Steady As She Goes"
Drums, 390 Kicks
Play on Expert+ with the Auto Kicks cheat on.

Darker My Love - "Blue Day"
Bass, 60,000 Star Power Points
Play on Expert, have up to 3 other instruments feeding you star power

Beastie Boys - "Gratitude"
Guitar, 35 Slide Taps
Play on Hard and turn on the Always Slide cheat

Brand New - "Sowing Season (Yeah)"
Bass, 475 Up Strums
Must be done on Expert, can only miss about 2-5 notes.

Garbage - "Only Happy When It Rains"
Vocals, Refill SP Meter 135%
Play on Easy with No Fail, and use your star power as often as possible. Have up to 3 other instruments feeding you star power. Three other vocalists on beginner in front of the fan should do the trick even if you can't earn SP by yourself.

The White Stripes - "Blue Orchid"
Drums, 300 Kicks
Play on Expert+, and turn on the Auto Kick cheat

John Mellencamp - "Hurts So Good"
Guitar, 35 Whammy Secs
Can be done on Medium difficulty with the Always Slide cheat on

Audio Technica Challenge
Vocals, 150 secs w/ 4x multiplier
Two easy ways of doing this: 1) Download the FREE Ferret/Metal Blade Track Pack and play "On Broken Glass" or 2) Import the World Tour songs and play "No Sleep Til' Brooklyn." For both songs place your mic in front of a fan on any difficulty. Although tempting, "Gratitude" by Beastie Boys won't earn Diamond, so don't try.

Rags to Riches Guitar Challenge
Guitar, 175,000 Points
"They Say" by Scars of Broadway on Medium should provide enough points

Sideshow

Wild Cherry - "Play That Funky Music"
Guitar, 200 Secs w/ 4x Multiplier
Play on easy. Also unlocks the Wormhole Venue

David Bowie - "Fame"
Vocals, 24 Desending “Fame” Notes
Play on Easy, turn all but the vocals down in the audio mixer in the Pause Options and turn up the TV. Hold the mic close and you'll get 24 of the 25 "Fames".

No Doubt - "Ex-Girlfriend"
Guitar, 70 Whammy Secs
Can be done on Easy actually, with all HOPO's cheat on.

Band Of Horses - "Cigarettes, Wedding Bands"
Bass, 90,000 SP Pts
Play on Expert, have up to 3 other instruments feeding you star power

Deep Purple - "Woman From Tokyo ('99 Remix)"
Band, 1,250,000 SP Pts

Kings Of Leon - "Sex On Fire"
Band, Refill SP meter 800%

Zildjian Drum Challenge
Drums, Refill SP 250%
Use your SP as often as possible and hit every phrase on Easy. However, this is made even easier if you have beginner vocalists feeding you SP.

Very nice WIP. I'm glad someone decided to do a guide for the challenges 'correctly'. Unlike the dead thread 'use this song for this challenge'.

Anyways good work so far I'm sure it will better over time.

Coldplay - "In My Place"
Guitar, Whammy 80 secs
Can only be done on Expert, as lower difficulties dont have as many sustains (not 100% on this)

Can actually be done on medium with all sliders cheat enabled.

John Mellencamp - "Hurts So Good"
Guitar, 35 Whammy Secs
(Need Tip)

Same as above.


3 Doors Down - "Kryptonite"
Drums, 300 Note Streak
Have Auto Kick on and play on (what difficulty?)

Got mine on easy

Dire Straits - "Sultans Of Swing"
Guitar, 610 Chord Strums
Must be done on Expert (?). Turn on No Fail and concentrate strictly on chords

Has to be done on expert as I got 99% and only just got diamond at the very end
.

Motley Crue - "Looks That Kill"
Guitar, 800 Up Strums
Must be done on (?)

Must be done on hard or expert as medium and easy do not have enough notes.


Billy Squier - "Lonely Is The Night"
Guitar, 65 Whammy Secs
(need tip)

Got mine on expert with no trouble, might be able to be completed on medium or hard with all sliders cheat enabled.

Children Of Bodom - "Done With Everything, Die For Nothing"
Guitar, 600 Note Streak
Can be done on Easy

Actually this can't be done on easy, as I missed one note and only ended up with a 556 note streak

Thanks for the guide. I understand these don't block achievements?

Too bad the challenges lose all their value when you can cheat them. Especially since there's a leaderboard for them....

Band Of Horses - "Cigarettes, Wedding Bands"
Bass, 90,000 SP Pts
Play on Expert, have up to 3 other instruments feeding you star power

That's a bit extreme, you can do it really easily on your own, just activate after every 2 phrases, and whammy as much as possible. It's not hard at all.

Ilike it good guide. But I think it might be more helpful to have them ordered by Bass, Guitar, Drums & Vocals rather than gig. I just think if you are sitting there playing Guitar career and then want to find the challenges easiest, you will have to read the whole list. Where as if it was instrument organised you just go to the instrument and the read a smaller list .

You could have it:

Bass

13th Rail
challenges

Sideshow

challenges

Guitar
13th Rail
challenges

Sideshow

challenges


You know it is just an idea to keep in mind maybe

Thumbs up

For the Nirvana - "Lithium (Live)" challenge I was able to acomplish this on easy with no other instruments. I don't know if this helps any...

Great write up, has helped me get a couple I've been struggling with!

Also any Bass Up-Strum achievements, a good tip is to stick the song on lefty flip and the play it looking in the mirror. Then you can strum down

i was debating between listing by gig or by instrument. maybe i could color code it or something. i especially wanted to separate the band ones out, since their is an achievement for that. its something i am considering.

Play on Expert, have up to 3 other instruments feeding you star power

That's a bit extreme, you can do it really easily on your own, just activate after every 2 phrases, and whammy as much as possible. It's not hard at all.
they are made easier though with people helping, but i understand that many of them are obtainable on your first try with a moderate amount of skill, by yourself. i guess when i say "have up to 3 other instruments helping", i mean between 0-3 others. maybe i can mention in the "General Tips" that 3 people help but by no means required

Oh my god. I was actually happy when I completed the Diamond challenge for Gratitude (Tap all 35 slider notes). And now you tell me you can use a cheat. Guitar Hero was finally going to be more challenging. Wait, it's not.

Doesn't mean that you have to use a cheat. You can make it more challenging by not using the cheats.

Yea I was wrong, I did it a little bit ago this time with hyper speed 5 set and got 100% with a 635 note streak.

For Ex-Girlfriend by No Doubt 70 seconds whammy my advice would be to turn on always slide cheat. That way you dont have to deal with strumming so much. Really helped for me

At the end of the song on vocals he sings the word 'Fame' starting really high pitched and slowly getting lower, 24 times. Nail all 24 and the diamond is yours.

Also,
Motley Crue - "Looks That Kill"
Guitar, 800 Up Strums
Must be done on Hard or Expert. Medium/Easy doesn't have enough notes.

I believe it is for alternate strumming, not up strumming.

Just thought I'd point out that for both of these you can't miss one open note. I FC'ed both and got Diamond on the last open note. Might be helpful to know in case you miss, then you know you have to restart.

Great list BTW. Definitley will come in handy when I'm ready to go for 808 stars and further.

Yeah, the guide is good, but it really needs more decriptions. As Garbar05 has said, you can't miss any open notes in those songs, so you need to add that into the guide.

Maybe add in what instrument combination would be good for the Band Score achievements, or tell people who do not know what a snare and a tom is. I'm one of those people, but I figured out that a snare is Red and a tom is Green.

I think doing it by instrument is better, because take right now for instance, I'm signed in on my drums, going through each challenge. I'm not looking at each gig switching back and forth between instruments, because then I'd have to keep signing in and out.

So I'm basically doing it all by each instrument anyways. I think most people are doing this as well since it's most logical.

what i was doing for the tap challenge's i'd put always slide on and do the song on either easy or medium as everyone knows there are less chords (double/triple notes) so that could be mentioned can be a lot easier for people struggling

EDIT: also works with the hammer on and off's but obviously turn the always slide cheat off and all hopos on

Signing in and out? Why would you have to sign out to change instrument? Just go to the band lineup screen (You might not even have to go that far tbh), unplug your drums and plug another instrument in and then carry on playing. No signing out required.

Unless by "signing out", you mean going out of career and coming back in on another instrument. But I don't know...

You are going to single-handedly add another 200 or so gamer points to my score on this game with this guide. Thank you.

Well that is what I mean. If I were to just shutoff my drums (they're wireless) it will just tell me to please reconnect controller. If I then plug in my guitar, it will recognize it as not being the same controller.

So if I want to switch from drums to guitar, I have to sign out on my drums, shut them off, plug in the guitar (if it's not already plugged in), sign in on my guitar then go back to the career.

I mean, unless Guitar Hero 5 is different than the previous games. I didn't really try to play around with it too much.
