Solid Gold, Baby!

Gold Star a song    

To gold star a song, you need to be playing on expert and get around 1.4X the five star score(it has been made easier since RB1). When you're playing you should see a star meter under your score, a circle goes around the star as you get more points. As you fill up the circle, the star becomes whole and it moves onto the next one. Once you get 5 stars, and you hit the Gold Star score, your stars turn gold. Do it on Expert vocals with the same technique you did to get Flawless Singing, the Beastie Boys song, just use starpower whenever you get it.

You have to be on expert to gold star a song. You don't have to get 100%, but you do need to get a high score.

Is it easier to get this solo or in a band?

It's better to do it solo. Being in a band just makes the score you have to reach even higher. With a band you have twice the chances of messing something up and no real extra advantage, in my opinion.

Done on "Eye of the Tiger" as solo Expert Vocalist. 97%, 149,500 points. 100% on expert with all overdrives will for sure give you this achievement. You can also do it easier - Visions on Expert (will also give you 100% Vocalist Achievement).

Beastie Boys song on Bass is the easiest to do this for sure. You can also use it to do the vocals achievement.

play expert vocals, put your mic up to your tv speakers, make sure mic sensitivity is all the way up and mess with your tv volume so it picks up the in game vocals but not loud enough to cause much feedback, tap the mic on the tv to activate over drive when you can.

here are some songs that will easily net you this achievement and also the percentage you will get by doing it this way, and the approximate score youll need to get gold stars.

1- so whatcha want - 100% - 235,000 score
2- testify - 100% - 235,000 score
3- give it away - 99% - 380,000 score
4- prequel to the sequel - 100% - 205,000 score
5- visions - 100% - 160,000 score
