    This is one of the second easiest achievements in the whole game and I didn't do all that great my first time.

    First, put away all of your instrument controllers (i.e. guitar, drum kit, keyboard, and microphone) as we will NOT be needing them. Just use a STANDARD Xbox 360 controller.

    Second, be sure to calibrate before attempting this achievement. There is nothing like trying to play a music game thinking you're horrible when it is the audio/video lag that is more to blame.

    As the achievement suggests, there are 2 tutorials:
    - Basic Tutorial
    - Advanced Tutorial

    You will find both of these under the HELP & OPTIONS -> HOW TO PLAY.

    Basic Tutorial:

    Here they just show you how to play the game the way it is meant to be played (i.e. do NOT try to hit every single note). You WILL need to play ALL 5 tracks (i.e. drums, bass, guitar, vocals, and keyboard*) AND get each of their respective multiplier to 2X or higher. If you fail at doing this last part, the game will restart you from the beginning of that section.

    * Not all songs feature a playable keyboard track of course, but it is there in the tutorial.

    Advanced Tutorial:

    Did you watch any of those power up videos that were showcased on Harmonix's YouTube channel? Whether you did or not, this is what the next part of the tutorial is. If you've played the full instrument supported Rock Band 3, you're probably familiar with the Overdrive game mechanic. It works similar to it, but instead of increasing your multiplier, it will give you energy to deploy an Overdrive Power-up. Here you will need to obtain enough energy and deploy your Bandmate Overdrive Power-up on any given track. Now all you need to do is play on a different track of your choosing and finish the song. Your "Bandmate" will continue to play the given track until all energy is depleted.

    Once both tutorials are completed, the achievement will unlock.
