You will get this achievement when you reach 20 million RSP in bass career. The bass career score is independent of the guitar career score. As with all the other bass achievements, you can do this one with a regular guitar in emulation mode, if you don't have a bass.

You get RSP for doing the technique challenges so I recommend you start with those and get all the golds for all the challenges. This will gain you a maximum of roughly 1.5 million RSP. I got about 1 million doing them:

Now switch to Events. You can edit the current event by pressing left on the D-pad when you are on the main page for the event, then selecting to customize the set list. Highlight and select a song and then choose replace, delete or add.

If you don't have the "Tone Designer Time Saver Pack" DLC, I recommend you concentrate on getting all the bass arrangements you can to at least 70k so that you unlock the Custom Tones for those songs. Change the songs in the event to ones you haven't 70k'd yet. Then qualify and play the event to get RSP and custom tones at the same time. I think unlocking tones for DLC songs counts towards the total required because there were still 2 or 3 on disc songs below 70k when this popped for me:

Next, if you're trying to get this done quickly, focus on Master events. Once you master 3 songs (100k + all sections mastered... or near mastered, it seems), you can create a set list for an event of only mastered songs. Playing a song in master mode (without the highway) doubles the score for the song.

The on disc ones that I found easy were:

- Angela
- Chimney
- Do You Remember
- Song 2*
- Where is My Mind

* Note: Song 2 is a very short song but it requires you to tune all strings a semitone down (E-flat tuning). If you don't want to tune down for it and then tune back up for the next song, leave your bass or guitar in E-flat tuning. When you are presented with the regular E-tuning screen, simply hold the first fret on each string while playing it. Similarly, shift all the songs, except Song 2, one fret higher. For example, in Where is My Mind, instead of playing it as R0, Y4, R4, R5, etc., play it as R1, Y5, R5, R6, etc. [ R = red or low E string, Y = yellow or A string, the number is the fret number, 0 = open ]. You can also use a capo, if you have one, on the first fret for the E-standard songs and remove it for Song 2. That makes playing the open notes easier. Thanks to Narkaotik for his comment which reminded me to add information on the tuning.

Here are some other songs that pedgz, Kvnrlnd, Narkaotik have suggested in the comments:

- (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction [ this one is a workout and tougher than most of the others on this list ]
- Breed
- Go With the Flow
- I Miss You
- Next Girl
- Vasoline

GWARRRRR recommends the Blink-182 DLC pack which contains 3 short and easy songs in standard tuning.

You can have up to 8 songs in a set list. If you find others, please leave them in the comments below.

The original 5 songs above plus the encores will net you over 1 million points per event once you're good at them. When you get over 200k for a song in Master mode, you will be pre-qualified for the song for the event. Otherwise, it seems to give you a target for the rehearsal of 150K.

Learn some songs and have fun!
