Hints

Hammering on and pulling off:

Hammering On and Pulling Off happens when you can strum on one note and successfully hit the notes that come after it without using the strum bar. Look for the single notes with white rings on top instead of black rings. As long as you hit the previous note, you can hit the next note by pressing the correct fret button. This is especially useful on songs like Cult of Personality under the Hard difficulty setting.

Easy battle power survival

When in a battle (either online or in Career mode), if you are playing against your opponent under the same difficultly setting, when they attack you with their battle power, look at their side of the screen. The notes will be the same and easy to see.

Easy "Through The Fire And Flames"

On "Through The Fire And Flames", before you use Star Power, pause Game Play. Hold Select  PlayStation2    PlayStation3  or Back  Xbox 360  , and resume game play. By doing this, you will not miss as many notes if you are going for a "Five Star" rank.

In the Through The Fire And Flames introduction, before you start wrap a rubber band around Green. By doing this, you will not have to worry about holding Green; it does it for you. Make sure you press the other buttons quickly so that Green can register. If you hold the buttons as you do the hammer-ons, Green will not register, and you will fail.

Easy Online mode

During an online vs. match (Face Off), the meter bar in the middle of the screen shows who is winning by the most points. To get more points, hold the whammy bar down while you play. The whammy bar gets you more points on long notes, but on short ones it is hard to hit. Hold the whammy bar to get all of them.

Iron Maiden reference

"22 Acadia Avenue" is a song name by the band Iron Maiden. You can see this in the first venue of Career mode.

Predator reference

There is a reference to the movie Predator in the song "Helicopter". After playing the song, go to the "More Stats" screen, or to Practice mode and get to the screen where you choose what section to play. One of the sections in the song is called "Get Back To The Choppa!!!" which seems to be a reference to Arnold Schwarzenneger's line in Predator, when they are all running away from the Predator.

Easy "Meet Your Maker" achievement

Start a match on Xbox Live and play in Co-op mode. Select "The Devil Went Down To Georgia" as a song and the Expert difficulty setting. Fail the song and you will get the "Meet Your Maker" achievement.

Easy "Buy A Guitar Already" achievement

In order to get this achievement easily, use a controller when you sign into the game. If you have completed the game under Hard or Expert difficulty setting with a guitar, just select that difficulty with a controller and the achievement will be unlocked.

Easy "Enlightened Guitarist" achievement

  • After unlocking "Through The Fire And The Flames", start a career under the Medium difficulty setting. Then, play through the song. When you are done, the "Enlightened Guitarist" achievement should be unlocked. This is much easier and faster than getting a "Gold star" rank twenty songs under the Expert difficulty setting.
  • To get the "Enlightened Guitarist" achievement without actually getting 20 gold stars on the Expert difficulty, enable the "Unlock Everything" and the "Hyperspeed mode" codes and set it to level five. Go into Career mode and play "Through The Fire And Flames" under the Expert setting. When you fail you should get the achievement.

Easy "Hendrix Reborn" achievement

If you are having trouble playing lefty (or righty), just place a mirror across from the television. The notes will now appear in the direction that you normally play in while actually being flipped on the televsion.

Easy "Whammy Mania" achievement

  • Select the "Number Of The Beast" song and tape the whammy bar down. Leave it there for the entire song. Even if it is not moving in and out, it still works. Note: Make sure to hit every long note or you will not be awarded the achievement.
  • Because it does not specify the difficulty, just play the song on Easy and make sure you hold the whammy bar down the entire song.
  • Tape down your whammy bar to the guitar controller and play "Number Of The Beast" under any difficulty setting. If you hit every held note you should be awarded the "Whammy Mania" achievement.

Easy "Who Needs The Power" achievement

Play through the song "Cult Of Personality" and make sure you have at least 175,000 points once you get to the break towards the end of the song. Activate Star Power and play the last short sequence of the song. Make sure your Star Power does not run out before it says "You Rock". If done correctly, you should still get the achievement even though you used Star Power.

Enable the "Unlock Everything" code. Leave the "Cheat" menu and enter the shop. Select your band, or create one if you have not already done so. Once you finally get into the shop the following achievements will be unlocked: Axe Collector (5 points), Track Master (5 points), Got 'em All (5 points), and Burnin' a Hole in Your Pocket (10 points).

Glitches

Easier songs

Before the beginning of the song (before the chords appear) move the Strum Bar Up and Down until the meter stops going down. Note: When the meter stops it will be in the red, and when the meter starts again it will be somewhere in the middle of the song.

Slow motion songs

Go to any song in Training mode. Play the song in slow, slower, or slowest. During the song turn on the lefty flip and restart the song. Then, turn off the lefty flip and restart again. You will now be able to hear the entire song, lyrics, band, and everything else at a slower setting.

"Through The Fire And Flames": Endless song

On the training for "Through The Fire And Flames" got to the "You Rock!!!" ending then do the "Slow motion songs" glitch on the slowest mode. At the end the song will keep on going and not go to the stats menu.

"Talk Dirty To Me": Alternate chord

On "Talk Dirty To Me" under the Hard difficulty setting, during the first verse after the two-note chord, instead of hitting the button in that chord closest to green, hit the same chord and it will be accepted.

Reveal locked characters

Go to the store then proceed to the character purchase screen. To see one of the characters that is locked, rapidly move the Strum Bar Up and Down between two characters. The game will glitch and show you that character momentarily. Sometimes it is difficult to control which locked character appears. Select the desired character and begin to strum the bar rapidly. This glitch does not show alternate outfits or styles of the locked characters.

Easy "Whammy Mania" achievement
