Want an easy way out and don't got the required skills or time. Need to beat expert 5 star every song?. Well no need to fear, with this achievement video you will be able to play expert on medium difficulty and only play 5-10 seconds each song. Enjoy
SequentialSwordLMFAO this is awesome

BormahTiidDoes this really work? I already have beaten this on Expert and 5 star'd everything but I'm too lazy to do it on Hard/Medium.
Posted by BormahTiid on 23 Aug 12 at 03:44
ixOWNxAGExiYes it does mate :) like in the video I picked medium difficulty played the little part on every career and every song. Obtaining every carrer based achievements. :) I hope you enjoy

AxGryndrI had done this with a different song which will get you through the songs this way you get the 5* and the song is not terribly long so this is great.
Posted by AxGryndr on 02 Oct 12 at 23:47
AxGryndrA note to add - you cannot replay a song to get 5* this way. Has to be a song you have not played yet.

EscapeTheRoachIt doesn't works to me :(

BurgerKingOPcan confirm that it does still work. Doing my hard run through now. My suggestion for RickyD31 is to not download the update and try doing it offline as that is what I am doing right now at this very moment. Redemtion, I don't know how you found this glitch, but I am so glad that you did...Great job

AEtherchildI can confirm that this glitch has NOT been patched. It is entirely possible to do this even if you are signed into Live at the time.
Out of curiosity. I am assuming there's another glitch around - the online leaderboards for every song are packed with scores in the hundred millions. I've got no interest in doing it myself, but does anyone here know about that?

truraider81i'm doing the glitch but its only giving me the same stars but gold stars. does anybody know what im doing wrong?

WiznyattThis is pure genius. I don't know how you found this glitch but this has got to be the best exploit ever. + 1 from me

planting42If you are having issues since you've already completed some songs... try starting a new career as that will give you a fresh start.

millionaires008For this it is has to be a wired guitar? Correct?
Posted by millionaires008 on 24 Jan 14 at 01:31
BODZ61@Millionaires008...I used a wireless controller.
Posted by BODZ61 on 24 Jan 14 at 16:29
millionaires008@BODZ61 how did you managed to do that? If you don't mind me asking?
Posted by millionaires008 on 25 Jan 14 at 17:52
BODZ61I just played the game using RedemtionOWNAGE method. You can play with a controller or guitar.
Posted by BODZ61 on 26 Jan 14 at 02:11
millionaires008Can anybody confirm that this glitch still works? I have been trying the past hour and can't get anything to work for me..
Posted by millionaires008 on 27 Jan 14 at 06:27
millionaires008Ok sounds good man..Thanks so much..
Posted by millionaires008 on 29 Jan 14 at 02:53
Eric FiltroAs of today, this still works. It's best to start a new Band, because if you already played a song, the glitch won't work on that particular song and you would have to get 5 stars by yourself. I recommend using a wired guitar. I tried "turning the controller off" but it didn't work. You need to literally unplug the guitar. +1

Eric FiltroMy friend, this is true genius. I don't know how you found about this, but you have made the world a better place. Works on every difficulty, Career and Quickplay.

millionaires008i don't know what I am doing wrong, but I cant get this to work
Posted by millionaires008 on 02 Feb 14 at 19:52
pezza888Wow! Can you use newer guitar hero wireless controllers on this game or not? As I'm considering getting it but I don't want to have to buy a new guitar.
Posted by pezza888 on 20 Mar 14 at 17:10
Dandorra@millionaires008: You have to unplug your controller right at the moment when the result screen is supposed to show up. If you hit the right moment your highway will continue without stopping.
@pezza888: It did work for me with a Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock guitar. So it seems that you can use any controller.

ReaboCan confirm works online. So good!

You So ShadyStill working online. Best glitch ever! Thank you <3

IlleniumVVLet me start by saying awesome guide!! Still works in 2019! Just takes perfect timing with a regular wired/wireless 360 controller. Guitar controller is possible, but it takes too much time to pull a battery making it difficult.
I also had issues with it giving me gold stars, but not recording that I got 5 stars too. For this I would suggest doing a fresh play-through since it works on songs that haven't been played.

JohnnyInterfnkLegendary! Never thought I'd finish this, but here I am in 2019, finally getting it done!
Posted by JohnnyInterfnk on 15 Aug 19 at 00:57
Lazar87This still works. I used a wireless GH3 controller. I took the battery cover off and when it came time to unplug the controller I just hit the controller against my leg to pop the batteries out. Took a few tries to unplug at the right spot but if it didn't work I'd just restart. Once I hit the right spot I played Expert on a new career and worked flawlessly!
Posted by Lazar87 on 13 Dec 19 at 06:22
JohnnyInterfnkConfirming still works as of January 1st, 2020.

(And yes, I finally beat the game 13 years after purchasing it!)
Posted by JohnnyInterfnk on 02 Jan 20 at 21:42
PumpkinHead2785Just to add a bit to this method. If you are bad at timing (like me), you unplug the controller, press resume, than real quickly pull the plug, then plug it back in, and press resume. Repeat this multiple times. This should move the fret board very slowly forward, so that after a few pulls, it will continue without notes, and glitch the song.
