Finish all the free gigs in a Career in Single or Band play.
Single: You must complete all free gigs on Expert by yourself.
Band: Every player (2-4) must have their difficulty set to Expert in order for the song to be completed as Expert.

*-If you complete the Career on Expert you will also unlock all difficulties below it. This is the same for all difficulties, not just Expert.
-If you are playing on a Guitar you can choose Bass as it is easier to play than Guitar.
-If you are playing Vocals you can hum the songs lyrics instead of singing, as this is much easier.
xNBKx Jigsaw250Damnit Im on the last two songs (possibly three if you have to beat the encore) of Expert Bass Career, but I cant beat it. Its pissing me off.

AerodynamoGood explanation, very simple but all that is needed!

Would like to point out for anyone reading (rather than making another solution) that some songs will glitch to a lower difficulty... Many people are beating the game on Expert and only unlocking Easy or Medium, but if you check through your songs, you'll find one that for SOME ODD REASON was only ever completed on medium... Even if all the other songs in the gig are on Expert. I had this happen to me and freaked out, then found a song from the 11th gig that I apparently beat on "easy"... lol.

dwu1983@ PsychoJigsaw250 - I had the same problem, but one day it just 'clicked' and I stormed through them without even trying. Keep at it and you'll do it.

Sir Vegemiteremember to build up star power, use it when your about to fail and aim for most notes and it should get you back up.

StoodBridgeBass is harder than expert, i got to the last gig without even beeing on the red on the bar, but once i got to BYOB, i can't complete it, still i can't.

Wish i took guitar instead.

Bass is soo cheap....
Atleast i did it on the MUCH harder guitar songs :D BYOB and to hot for teacher DOWN !

LepraSaunBYOB just requires some practice, once you realise you can just keep strumming up and down at a steady pace and if you tap the frets at the right time you'll easily beat it

cozzie08I fineshed all of the free gigs on expert, but it hasn't unlocked! I've triple checked all of the songs and i definately have all of them done on expert. Ideas?

SteSteSte91Yeah at first i couldn't pass BYOB on exper bass, still can't, I ended up completing it on Expert Drums instead :P You have no idea how many times it took passing Assassin lol! Didnt have a problem with any other song apart from that!

xAcer95xEasy as Guitarist, I failed only BYOB (maybe 10 times), Hot for Teacher (once) and Satch boogie (over 20 times) :P

Grimslinger19Assassin on both Expert Bass and Guitar is incredibly hard for me on Expert. I've tried to alt strum and it doesn't seem to work for me. I need to figure out how many times to strum in the sequences forgetting the random orange, or blue or red or yellow single note. I'm overstrumming and that's why i'm failing, but I can't seem to alt strum in the right speed. Any suggestions?

Daemonhunter 7After reading all the 'BYOB horror stories' I found it surprisingly easy and beat it 4 stars on my first run. Now i'm stuck on 'hot for teacher'. Got 70% through after many practice runs, but I don't think I can get through the last solo(s).

Is there anyway to change to bass, without re-doing the entire career?

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.
