The Beatles: Rock Band Achievements

Things That Money Just Can't Buy

Earn Expert gold stars on the 4 songs displayed on the Achievements screen.    
Gold stars are earned when you do very well on a song, it is possible to get gold stars and miss one or two notes, you will have to play on expert on any instrument for this achievement, like the others get used to the rhythm of the songs and practice if necessary. Finally using star power on chord sections is the key to scoring more points, look out for good places to activate. Some people find doing these as a band makes it easier. The songs you need to gold star are as follows:

Back In The U.S.S.R.:

Expert Guitar Gold Star at Roughly: 114,000 points.
Requirements: 98% or better, save your star power until the red and yellow triplets come in and use it on fast sections.
Important Tip: Practice a lot using triplets, you'll struggle with this song if you struggle to strum quickly.

Can't Buy Me Love:
Expert Guitar Gold Star at Roughly: 113,000 points.
Requirements: 99% or better, use star power on the 3-note chords and you should do this easily.
Important Tip: Like the last, make sure you've got couplet notes down.

Get Back:
Expert Guitar Gold Star at Roughly: 99,000 points.
Requirements: 99% or better, use star power decently.

Helter Skelter:
Expert Guitar Gold Star at Roughly: 174,500
Requirements: 100% and try to work out a good star power path, I made sure that I had a full bar of star power and entered it as the outro starts with the G-YB- notes, then pick up the one there to refill. Best of luck with this one.

I only had trouble with Get Back on Guitar, I found it easier to just FC it on Bass, Gold Star Cutoff is 104,080

That's inaccurate, because I just finished the song on bass at 150,625 and didn't gold star it.

I gold starred Get Back with 97%. You just need to use the star power well and not miss while using star power. Not a hard FC though tbh.

Helter Skelter was the biggest pain. After several tries of doing it on both guitar AND bass, I finally did it on bass. I FC'ed it and didn't gold until the VERY LAST NOTE. And it's the toughest bass song in the game imo

I have created a way to use a computer to play drums perfectly and obtain this achievement. I have created a video tutorial for this method but I have included full text instructions as well.
