    Capt PoopeyAnyone who finally beats their last remaining song on Expert but doesn't pop the achievement (like me!) - simply go into the 'Book your own gig' and play one more song. I played 'About a Girl' and then was awarded the Hall of Famer.

    radamanthysplHaven't seen it mentioned before, so just a tip for those struggling with B.Y.O.B. on bass: If you fail the song while playing entire gig (or continuing it, for that matter) just play the song on hard, fininsh the gig and collect the achievements for fininshing the career on hard. Then come back to the gig and just pick this song only. For some odd reason when you play entire gig your rock meter starts off in the yellow, but when you choose to play just one song it starts off in green. This might make a whole lot of difference like it did for me. Now, I haven't tested it extensively but did double check it. Let me know it it works for you.

    Also, this might seem obvious, but I've seen myself refusing to that myself too many times - if you've failed the song 12 times in a row, just let it go for a day, you're obviously too tired to feel the rhythm and in this song alt-strumming at specific speed is the key to success. So come back later and you'll see that the lack of frustration and anger also helps. I spent 2 hours trying to beat the song the first day to no avail. The next day, on the second run I got to 72% and beat on the fourth run.

    MattiasAndersonI got one question that has not been brought up anywere. I am doing Expert on Vocals. And I have beatedn almost all the free gigs now. Got just one song left.

    I got two questions actually:

    1. If i beat all songs on expert that is from free gigs but have bought the tool gig and did not complete all those songs on expert. Will this fail me to get the achievement even if they are not supposed to count? Like a glitch or something. I am asking because i really struggle with the second and third song on tool.

    2. I have beat all songs except for one. If i play just that song that i have not beaten yet on expert. WIll I get the achievement? (If not i guess i book my own gig) However I wonder if I need to do the entire gig again because of this one song.

    I would really like to know theese two things.

    Cheers

    I did this on bass as it is generally easier than guitar. If you are competent player, you will only have trouble with the last few songs, you should should breeze through the rest. The real bogey song here is BYOB by System of a down. The way i beat it was to slow things right down in practice and practice until you are sure that you know the rythym and pace you should be alt-strumming at. Here is a video of the song

    This is the way i got the achievement today:

    The easiest one is definitely the bass-career. Like in the other solutions discribed you only have to play through the free gigs.

    The hardest one is BYOB and I tryed the song 20 times failing at around 15% in the first verse. Insteed of wasting time practicing I used hyperspeed on level 3.

    For hyperspeed go to 'options', 'cheats' and use the following combination:

    Green, Blue, Red, Yellow, Yellow, Red, Green, Green

    Than turn Hyper-Bass to Level 3.

    Back in the career I was able to get through BYOB in one try. The verses are very easy now. You can better get in the right rythm of alt-strumming and for the green and red frets just tap the buttons very fast. Before hyperspeed I was not even able to survive 5 seconds in the verses but now it was the simplest part for me.

    But the intro is now a bit harder than before, so if you fail it, don't worry. You will push the rockmeter in the verse. Between the verses try to get as much starpower as you can. In the song are two parts which are really hard and the only way I survived them was because of the starpower.

    As I finished BYOB the achievement poppud up, so don't worry about the "cheat". If it not pops up, play 1 song in the song-overview (the door to the left of the last gig). An easy workaround if its glitched for the first time.

    If you can beat guitar career on hard, then this will be a breeze on bass. Only 2 songs should give you a little problem. Assassin by muse,and b.y.o.b by system of a down. I practiced the first verse in practice Mode until I got the how fast it's supposed to go. If you can figure out the speed, this song is easy. Also don't forget that you only do the free gigs. I looked at percentage and it said 72, so you only have to do around 62 songs instead of the regular 86. Good luck!

    I initially thought that you only had to beat the final encore on expert but it has since been proven false. You must beat all of the 'free songs' on expert. If you do a song on medium or hard, then switch your difficulty for the encore, you will only get the achievement for the lowest difficulty you completed a song on in the career, until you replay those songs on expert.

    Basically, I thought you could avoid playing Satch Boogie, but as it turns out, you don't even have to play that tier at all, so breathe a sigh of relief!

    Do this on bass, it will be a lot easier. Also, you do not have to play the gigs that you have to pay for, the only song you will probably encounter problems with is "B.Y.O.B" By System Of A Down. Just keep practicing it and you will get it.

    You can get this achievement with any instrument. The easiest would be the bass. If you are better at singing or playing drums, then go ahead. You must beat every song in the career mode on the expert difficulty. You can do this solo or in a band. However with more than one person, everyone must be on expert for every song in order for you to get the achievement. You do not need to play any of the gigs that you need to pay for in order to beat the career. This is a stackable achievement. This means that if you get this achievement for beating expert, you will also get the achievements for beating hard, medium, and easy at the same time if you havn't already got them.
