    stretters87I just got gold on Get Back solo vocals with a score of 106,843. I was on 103,000 going into the last phrase and didn't have gold then. Combining that with the two posts above me suggests it is around 103,500 to get the gold stars

    First off, thanks to Xebu for listing the needed scores smile

    This is by far the hardest of the 4 Gold Star achievements.

    Some helpful hints:

    -For U.S.S.R. play bass. Even though the rating for it is a 6 it plays easier than the guitar part. The things you want to watch out for on here is the triple strums, and the 8-note or so fast strum after the first two triple strums.There's a couple more triple strums after this part, and I believe a couple strung throughout in various places. You'll need to basically FC this song.

    - Can't Buy Me Love is the easiest of the 4. I sang it, but play on whatever you feel comforable with.

    -Get Back is a bass song. It's much easier than the guitar and with fewer HOPOs. But with this you'll need to FC it. You can probably get away with missing one very early, and possibly one late but not both.

    - Helter Skelter is by far the hardest of these 4. Play Guitar, and you'll need to FC it all the way until late unto the triples (GYB I believe) You want to use overdrive as soon as you fill it up the first time, save your next bunch until after the solo, use your next OD immediately as you get it, and the next one will be used as soon as you get into the triples near the end of the song.(You probably will have some OD left over but it's okay) If you can use something close to this OD path and FC it you should have yourself some shiny gold stars.

    I honestly hopes this helps you in your endeavor for all of the gold star achievements. Please leave a comment if you have any other suggestions.

    I should mention, if you're in a band you're all going to need to score 98-100%. You may be able to slide in a 96 or 97 between bandmates, but you want an average of between 98-100%

    KanchanaburiDoes this mean that we only have to complete it on 1 instrument, example, just on the drums?

    CrandyYes you only need to complete it on one instrument to get the achievement. I think you can mix and match instruments as well but I'm not completely sure. Example Gold star Back in the U.S.S.R. on Guitar, Helter Skelter as a band, and finish the last two on drums.
