    Groudon199The game doesn't save after each song in a setlist, so if you exit the game before the setlist is finished (or if you don't quit out of the setlist first), you'll have to redo all of them.

    F3arIn0culumI was playing earlier today (about an hour ago) and was trying to get it and it didn't pop even though I had all the secret notes.
    What I did was I cleared my system cache (I doubt this is necessary but I'm mentioning it anyway)
    I normally play Expert, I played the game normally waaaaay back when I originally got it and I got 4 of the 19 secret notes.
    I went on it again today and was going to get the others because I remembered the achievement gives you 490 points and did every song on Easy. I got all the Secret Note ones but I didnt get the one for getting all of them so I figured it is bound by the same difficulty and I was right.

    In order to get the achievement you need to play all the songs (in whatever order you may like) in the same game mode (I picked quickplay) and make sure you hit all the secret notes and that you are playing it all on the same difficulty.
    Now, there is no way of knowing exactly which ones that are the secret notes so people say that its best to 100% all songs, however, I missed like 3 notes on each because I am not used to Easy and find it very difficult as I normally play Expert, and still got the achievement so don't freak out if you miss one or two notes.

    MattiasAndersonDoing what F3arIn0culum above me said worked! I did a beginner on vocal and went quickplay with all the songs in one go and got the achievement after it had previously not unlocked.

    Secret Notes 3: "Honky Tonk Women" - The Rolling Stones
    Secret Notes 4: "Take What You Take" - Lily Allen
    Secret Notes 5: "Like Whoa" - Aly & AJ
    Secret Notes 6: "She Will Be Loved" - Maroon 5

    Secret Notes 15: "So Yesterday" - Hilary Duff

    To make this easier, connect a regular Xbox 360 controller (i.e. the one you use to play Halo and Call of Duty games) and a microphone (an Xbox 360 headset will also work, but will require an in-game setting change to work). Play quickplay and set your difficulty to BEGINNER. Create a setlist in the order noted above. Before you start playing, turn on a fan at the highest setting and place the microphone in front of it. This is called the "fan trick" as it is NOT necessary to hit the correct pitch on beginner difficulty. As long as the microphone is picking up any kind of sound, the game will count it as "singing". It is then possible to FC (full combo) all 19 songs, continuing the phrase streak throughout each song from beginning to end. You will also unlock Fevered Pitch in Band Hero (100% a song as a vocalist) in doing so.

    NOTE: If you are playing a setlist, you will need change to the next song on the list manually by pressing cn_A on the controller until you have finished them all.

    For this achievement you need to hit all the notes during a certain section in a number of songs, you can do this on any instrument as each instrument has it's own section of notes for the achievements, thankfully though, you only need to do it on one instrument, the same thing goes for difficulty, each difficulty has it's own section of notes for the achievement and you only need to do it once on any difficulty to unlock the achievement.

    Now the problem is that the sections are unmarked and no-one really knows for certain what or where the sections are, the best way to go for this is to try and complete the song without missing a single note, that will ensure you get the achievement, so play on a difficulty/instrument combination that you're able to full combo and you'll get the achievement.

    Alternatively you could use the beginner vocals/mic fan exploit to get all the other achievements, if you have a microphone/headset and a fan you can just leave the mic leaning against the fan while it's on and the game will register it as sound input and you'll be able full combo every song without actually doing anything.

    Lastly, for this specific achievement you need to play these songs, I'll link them in so that you can use them as a checklist, if they're green you have them, if they're red/pink you still need them;

    JayourI have no idea, the only thing I can think of is that it didn't save perhaps? So you still have the achievement but not the data which would stop this from unlocking.
