This cheevo will be awarded for completing 15 songs on score attack, master difficulty.

To get to score attack you can either select score attack from the techniques menu or by pressing cn_LB after selecting a song in learn a song mode.

To unlock master difficulty you must 1st complete the song on score attack hard with no strikes.

Now this cheevo is very difficult to write a solution that can help you get this easier because this will require lots of practice and some skill with a guitar and lots of memory power too.

I am a mediocre player at best so below is a list of the songs I personally have passed and which I feel are relatively easy (hence I managed to do them).

Most of the songs I have passed are either on the lead path or rhythm path and just a couple on bass.

It is possible to emulate bass using a normal guitar from the option menu.

The majority of these songs will be DLC but my hope is that this will be a list of some of the easiest songs for the lesser skilled players like myself to work towards.

All of the videos posted are not mine and credit goes to The Riff Repeater unless otherwise stated so pop over to youtube and give their channel a like.

Also a big piece of advice I can give is to watch the videos and really take note of how they guys are playing, finger positions and such, this really helped me with certain riffs and not just on the songs listed below.

1 & 2. Angela ~ Jarvis Cocker (RS1 Import pack, lead & bass)

This song follows a simple 2 string riff for probably 90% of the time with a very simple solo half way through.

Bass is the very same riff as lead the whole way through.

3 & 4. Blitzkrieg Bop ~ The Ramones (on disc song, lead & bass)

This song has 4 chords the entire song, and all have the same chord shape. the chords are A5, D5, E5 & occasionally B5. The chord shape is always the same but just the root note changes.

Bass follows same rhythm as lead and same root notes but no chords.

5 & 6. In The End ~ Linkin Park (DLC, Lead & Rhythm)

This song is very simple and is basically just 4 different harmonics spaced out so the only difficult part is remembering the timings, so chords follow but is just a simple progression and the pattern repeats its self. This goes for both lead and rhythm but rhythm has a few more chords and less harmonics than the lead path.

7 & 8. Like A Stone ~ Audioslave (DLC, Lead & Rhythm)

this song is a little more difficult than the others but overall its just the same pattern of chords and a fairly basic riff. The only difficult part may be towards the end when the strumming pattern changes but a little patience and practice and you should find this one easy enough.
The lead and rhythm path is EXACTLY the same.

9. Next Girl ~ The Black Key (RS1 Import pack, lead)

This song is very much like Angela as in it is pretty much a 2 string riff for most of the song while occasionally throwing in a small riff on a 3rd string. No chords just all single notes and repeating pattern.

10. Go with flow ~ Queens of the Stone Age (RS1 import pack, Rhythm)

This song is super easy and only has 3 chords, the only problem you will have with this song is its very fast and you hand will probably get tired but all in all a very simple song.

11 & 12. All The Small Things ~ Blink 182 (DLC, Lead & Rhythm)

These are relatively simple songs and there is only a few differences between lead and rhythm and shouldn't be to much of a problem.

13. When I'm With You ~ Best Coast (Rhythm, RS1 import pack)

Now this song is bit of a freebie for your count. This song has 1 chord shape which simply moves up and down the fret board. When on master simply keep strumming fast and ignoring the rhythm if you want and use the glowing fret board to know what fret position to use and you should pass this song extremely easy.

Unfortunately I couldn't find a decent vid of the rhythm path but the vid below shows the lead but it shows how simple the chorus and verses are and for the rhythm side is exactly same just minus the small solo.

14. What I've Done ~ Linkin Park (DLC, Rhythm)
This song is relatively easy and the for the most part is just 1 chord moving up and down the fret board, its a simple progression and the root note basically moves from A10 to A13 down to A8 and then to A3 and back up again while in the chorus it jumps from A3 to A5, A6 and back into the usual repeating pattern.
The only part that will take little practice will be the intro riff and this is very basic and shouldn't cause too many problems.

15. Black Magic - Magic Wands (on disc, bass
This is an incredibly simple bass riff which just follows a circular pattern on 2 strings and across 2 frets.

So far this is as far as I have gotten.
Good luck and I will post more as and when I complete them.
Happy playing and ROCKOUT
