|Max out the Combo Meter|
Your combo meter is in the lower left hand part of your screen. In order to get it higher you must either hit notes with a 'good' or 'perfect' rating. Getting 100 and 250 note streaks is easily done on the song Pain on Expert or Hard. It may seem like the other three are very hard, but if you play in gigs they are not. Here is an easy way to get all the note achievements in one go:
When in gigs, your streak carries over from song to song. If you 100% Pain and All the Small Things you will only need to 100% a bit of We're Not gonna Take it.
|Activate the Power Meter 3 times in a song|
When the blue portion of the meter in the top right of the screen is full, you can activate “Power”. You will know it's ready when the lower HUD flashes blue. Simply tilt your guitar up and it will activate. This is an achievement that you will get after a song or two easily. But if you are really having trouble, try playing Am I Evil? since it is really long.
|Reach the maximum multiplier (x8)|
Your multiplier increases when you hit notes perfectly. Getting it to an 8 shouldn't be very difficult at all. But, if you are struggling just move down a difficulty and you will be fine.
|On the Career Path||10|
|Complete your first event in Career mode|
Once you start up your career, you will have to pick from 6 different songs that have varies objectives. Finish any one of these on any difficulty and the achievement is yours.
|Going for Gold||10|
|Achieve a Gold rating for a Disc in Career Mode|
To earn a gold ranking for a disk you must finish 3 out of the 6 events. This can be done on any difficulty. When you start up your career you will only have one album at the start. So, you just need to pass whatever three events look easiest to you on it.
|It's Gone Platinum||20|
|Complete all events on a Disc in Career Mode at any difficulty|
To earn a platinum ranking for a disk you must finish 6 out of the 6 events. This can be done on any difficulty. When you start up your career you will only have one album at the start. This is the easiest one, so I would suggest trying to finish it before you move on to future ones.
|Complete a song to 100% on any difficulty|
Since you can do this on any difficulty it is quite easy. You can get this in career, quickplay, local or online co-op or versus. Just play Blitzkrieg Bop or Pain on Beginner difficulty and you shouldn't have any trouble. You will get this achievement as long as you hit 100% of the notes; you can strum in between them by accident, break your combo, and you'll still be fine.
|Birth of a Legend||10|
|Finish a song performance on expert difficulty in Career or Quickplay|
As the title says, finish a song on Expert. You can be in career or quickplay. If you are having trouble passing songs on expert I would suggest playing Pain. It is not very long and is simple enough for most to pass.
|Expert Song Aced||30|
|100% any song on expert difficulty|
You can get this in career, quickplay, local or online co-op or versus. The song Pain will be easiest for most. Another easy song is All the Small Things. You will get this achievement as long as you hit 100% of the notes. You can strum in between notes by accident and break your combo, and you'll still unlock the achievement.
|Complete a poster gig at any difficulty level for an instrument|
After you have received gold on the first two albums in your career you will unlock a poster gig. Pick three songs that you find easiest (or most fun if you are not worried about failing). You can finish this on any difficulty with either guitar or drums.
|Complete all songs for an instrument in Career or Quickplay|
For this achievement you have to beat every song (any ranking) on whatever difficulty you choose. The easiest way to see what songs you have yet to beat is to play only in career mode. This way the songs you have completed will be bold. Now, just look through all your albums for songs that are not done.
|Complete all songs on Expert Difficulty for an instrument in Career or Quickplay|
See “Songs Complete”, only this time it has to be on Expert. If doing guitar on Expert is to difficult for you I would suggest try beating all the songs in quickplay on Expert bass. This will unlock the achievement as well. You must do all songs on one instrument though, no half guitar half bass or anything.
|Complete Career mode for an instrument|
Just as the description says, finish the career mode. To do this you must:
|Complete all Discs to Platinum standard for an instrument|
For this achievement all you have to do is finish every event in career mode. The difficultly is irrelevant. If you like you can do everything on beginner and this will still unlock as long as you finish every event on every album.
|Reach a cumulative 'career points' total of 50,000,000 for an instrument|
To get this achievement you must acquire 50 million career points. Career points do not stack, they are simply your high scores added up. Example: The first song I play I get 1,000,000 points exactly. I replay it and get 900,000 points. My career point score is still only 1,000,000. If I replay it again and get 1,200,000 then my career point score is now 1,200,000. This means you will have to do pretty good on all the songs in the game. If you are bad at a song turn down the difficulty. It is your highest score on a song, the difficulty does not matter. One of the best ways to get more points is the poster gigs, yes, these count towards your total. Pick the three songs you get the highest score on and shred away. Don't forget to do this achievement on just one instrument.
|Complete all Discs to at least Gold standard for both instrument Careers|
See "Professional Musician".
