The two main difficulties with this list of achievements are being able to 100% a song on Expert with every instrument, and then finding local Expert players to do "Just Another Band Out of Boston". The other achievements are very easy.

When you start the game, you should first play the following list of songs on either Guitar or Bass and 5-star them. See the guide for your cut-offs scores for each song.
"Peace of Mind" by Boston on Guitar.
"Take the Money and Run" by Steve Miller Band on Guitar.
"Holiday in Cambodia" by Dead Kennedys on Bass.
"All Right Now" by Free on Guitar.
"The Joker" by Steve Miller Band on Guitar.

This will unlock the following achievements:
I Understand About Competition
Robbin' Banks With A Six-Gun
You're A Star-Belly Sneech
Don't You Wait or Hesitate
Some People Call Me Maurice


If you didn't already 100% some songs on Expert during this time, then you need to focus on scoring 100% on a song for Flawless Groove and Flawless Fretwork. If you have any trouble with a certain section of a song, you can go practice in Practice Mode.

Now, switch over to either a drum kit or microphone and play "Closer to the Heart" by Rush and 5-star it to unlock Each Must Know His Part. If you are on drums, you can take this opportunity to score 100% on Expert for Flawless Drumming, if you can. If not, then I would recommend the easier songs mentioned in the guide. Again, go into Practice Mode if you have a section you are having trouble with.

Switch to a microphone and score 100% on any Expert song to unlock Flawless Singing. I am not a vocalist, so I can’t really recommend songs from experience, but I found out that two songs are ranked as “Warmup” in Rock Band 2: “Kiss Them For Me” and “Truth Hits Everybody.”

Now, you need to go out in the world and find three friends to play as a full band, preferably ones who can play Expert. Play the song “Can’t Stand Losing You” by The Police and 5-star it as a full band to unlock What Your Girlfriends Say. Then, get some Expert friends and play the song “Rock and Roll Band” by Boston with EVERY PLAYER on Expert and achieve enough points to Gold Star it (see guide for target score) to unlock Just Another Band Out of Boston.

There you go, 250/250. Another Track Pack complete!

  • 5-Star "Can't Stand Losing You" by the Police with a full band.

      
    For this achievement, you'll need three friends. Any three friends will do as this achievement just calls for 5-starring a song, which can be done with four people on Easy, all the way up to a Full Expert Band. There are too many combinations of difficulties to provide cut-offs, but if you or your friends are having trouble, try jumping down one difficulty and try again.
  • Gold Star "Rock and Roll Band" by Boston with a full band.

      
    I hope you have three expert friends, because there is no online multiplayer for this game. This must be done locally. To gold star a song, each member must be playing on Expert difficulty, and all the players must do very well to achieve enough points. The target score is 919,649 points. Good luck.
  • Score 100% notes hit as bassist, up-strums only, on Expert.

      
    To unlock this, you must hit 100% of the notes in any song in the game on Expert Bass. The catch is that all of your strums from the second the fretboard appears to the time it leaves must be upstrums. Any downstrum at all will negate the achievement.

    Any Tier 1 song should be easy enough to get this achievement. The recommended songs for this achievement are "The Joker", "Bad to the Bone", and "Hit Me With Your Best Shot." All of these, and a handful more still, are ranked as "Warmup" songs on Rock Band 2.
  • Score 100% notes hit as a guitarist on Expert.

      
    To unlock this, you must hit 100% of the notes on any song in the game on Expert Guitar. Any Tier 1 song should be easy enough to get this achievement. If you are having trouble, I would recommend "Can't Stand Losing You."
  • Score a 100% rating as a vocalist on Expert.

      
    To unlock this, you must score a rating of "Awesome" on every phrase in a song on Expert Vocals. For those of us who are vocally-gifted, this will not be a problem but if you're tone deaf, like me, this achievement will probably remain locked for a while.

    Any Tier 1 song should be easy enough to unlock this achievement, with practice. If you're having problems, I would recommend "Kiss Them For Me" and "Truth Hits Everybody" as there are ranked as 'Warmup' difficulty songs in Rock Band 2.
  • Score 100% notes hit as a drummer on Expert.

      
    To unlock this, you must hit 100% of the notes on any song in the game on Expert Drums. Any Tier 1 song in the game should be easy enough to unlock this achievement. If you are having trouble, I would recommend "The Joker" as it is ranked as an 'Apprentice' song, but at the top of the list meaning it's still pretty easy on Rock Band 2.
