    One however is slightly longer. The first road is legit one, without using the unlock everything shortcut.
    For this you will need to :

    1. 5-star all solo careers including all of co-op
    2. Buy everything from Guitar Center, the store.
    3. Complete 100 ranked SONGS on xbox live.

    Before you freak out let me explain. The only reason you need to 5-star all the careers including co-op is because you are not using the cheat. That means that certain guitars won't be available till you do this.
    Next, you may have noticed how I said complete 100 songs rather then matches. I say this from personal experience. I played around 50 matches yet much of that was boosting towards 500 wins, playing best of 7 battle matches. I put in the code as a shot in the dark, played a song and it popped up at the end. Pleasant surprise would be an understatement.

    Your other option is the one I chose. You will need to:

    1. Complete all difficulties of the solo career.
    2. Complete 100 ranked songs on xbox live.
    3. Put in the unlock everything cheat.
    4. Play a song in career (you can fail if it pleases you).

    If you put the cheat in before you complete steps 1 or 2 then you will need to complete steps 3 and 4 a second time.

    The Cheat:

    (GR_BO) (GRYB_) (GRY_O) (G_BYO) (GRYB_) (_RYBO) (GRYB_) (G_YBO) (GRYB_) (GRY_O) (GRY_O) (GRYB_) (GRY_O)

    I hope this helps clear up confusion and saves you a lot of time.

    CanaDa FwendThe code is input by playing 13 chords, each of which is 4 notes. So the first chord is in the first set of parenthesis. Play the Green, Red, Blue, and Orange notes at the same time. The Yellow note is not played. So the underscore is there to show the absence of the button.

    ElBlaze2010I can confirm that it does not matter whether these are songs or battles...they just have to be matches.

    I never played a single 'song' online, I only ever boosted the 500 online wins using battles.

    I went on today to start boosting pro face off thinking I would need to complete 100 songs and viola, popped after playing just one song!

    FlollyLFBeen boosting this myself with 2 Xbox’s Iv done way over 100 songs but achievement won’t unlock.

    Iv met all the requirements


    Ok so after meeting all the requirements this achievement wasn’t unlocking so I decided to input the cheat and fail a song just to see achievement popped once I failed

    I’m not sure why it wasn’t popping normally

    To get this achievement you don't have to complete all co-op careers, just solo. Then buy everything from the shop, you could always use the cheat code as that works too. Then finally complete 100 online matches, this doesn't have to be ranked it can be either player or ranked combined. Just saving you some time because the other solutions are making it sound harder than it really is. =]

    pop99669966This, right here. It's completely accurate and I'm not entirely sure why this achievement has such a low unlock rate due how to how easy it really is.

    This is how I got it:

    Beat all careers. (all difficulties)

    Play 100 RANKED matches online.

    Purchase all things from store. I used the "Unlock All Cheat Achievment Glitch" (Video link below)

    I am sure that's all I did.
