    For the most part, this achievement is done most easily by getting 3 stars on 25 songs on medium. These are probably the easiest songs to do:
    25 or 6 to 4
    The Beautiful People
    Before I Forget
    Bohemian Rhapsody
    Break on Through (To the Other Side)
    Combat Baby
    The Con
    Du Hast
    Heart of Glass
    I Love Rock N' Roll
    Just Like Heaven
    Low Rider
    Need You Tonight
    Radar Love
    Rainbow in the Dark
    Rock Lobster
    Stop Me if You Think You've Heard This One Before
    Walk of Life
    Walking on the Sun
    Werewolves of London
    Whip It
    Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt. 1

    There might be some songs that are fairly tricky, and you might be able to find easier ones but these are the 25 that I did. The most important thing to remember is to not give up

    finallife6one thing is if you do it on medium and try with no fail mode on you should get 3 stars
    i got 51% on Llama medium pro keys and it gave me a 3 star

    Torhu Hybridfinallife: I thought RB3 got rid of "automatic 3 stars" just for finishing a song.

    Troodon9999You don't automatically get 3 stars for finishing a song; but if you're playing well enough to pass that almost guarantees you're getting at least 3 stars (you're doing worse than that, you're probably failing anyway). Turning no-fail on you still need to hit enough notes to get 3 stars, you just don't have to worry about failing.

    Srl KlrI suck at keys so does combining with a singer make this any easier?

    TheOceanic815I don't think playing in band counts at all. It's worth a shot to see if you and a friend get 3 stars together and see if it counts, but I think this has to be done in solo.

    Capt Poopeyuberpwnage479 is so right saying 'don't give up'. This is doable in 2 or 3 hours even for someone like me who does not play keyboards. Best advice I can give is that when the song begins, check which colour groups of keys are showing. If you use two of the groups as 'bases' for your fingers (say, all four of your left fingers on yellow, and the first three of your right hand fingers on blue), it is easier to just concentrate on the notes that come down those two colour groups and do your best to hit as many as you can. If you don't panic and move your hands around in an attempt to cover three colour groups, you can hit enough notes in just two groups to gain the three stars on medium. As a keyboardist I make a great guitar player ;-) but this was quite doable, even on my first attempt at most of these songs in uber's list. And if one seems too difficult, try another - you may be pleasantly surprised that the song seems easier than the keyboard difficulty it's given in the song select menu. Keep at it and you may even find yourself enjoying keyboards!
