[top]Tips & Strategies

You won't do this in one sitting, (unless you are trying to burn yourself out) so take your time and enjoy the music.

Be prepared to spend some money - Sometimes DLC can be easier on you. If $1.99 can save you several hours isn't your time worth more than that?

There is no shame in No Fail so please feel free to turn it on, sometimes the songs can be tough. There is no penalty for having No Fail enabled all the time. Start - Options - Check "No Fail"

You-tube can be your best friend - Sometimes it helps to watch the notes without trying to play them.

CONSTANTLY check your goals under Career - My Goals Especially for frustrating trophies like "HOPO-cidal maniac" it will let you know where you stand, and what you need to do to get that particular goal/trophy.

Challenge Types
There are a few types of challenges you will face on the road challenges.

Accuracy - Be as accurate as possible, streak has no bearing as long as you hit the note you can go crazy and still get accuracy you will get spades.

All For One - Everyone in the Band has to be Accurate or nobody gets spades, if on single player it will be treated as just Accuracy.

Maximum Overdrive - Fill the Overdrive bar COMPLETELY before going into overdrive, probably one of the more annoying challenges.

Overdrive Chain - Try to chain overdrives as long as possible, great with a guitarist because they can OD anytime and extend the overdrive by using the wah-wah on long hold Overdrive notes.

Overdrive Streak - Go into Overdrive and streak as many notes as you can, once you miss a note it ends that spade run for that overdrive so use it wisely, Vocalists will really only have to streak for one note to get a bunch of spades for this.

Overdrive Overdose - As soon as it is available go into overdrive, the length doesn't matter just use it every time you can.

Share the Spotlight - Streak whenever the spade is under your overdrive bar to pass it off to another band member, when you don't have the spade on you it doesn't matter how good or bad you are doing, Single player gets treated like Streakmania.

Streakmania - Everyone in the band needs to streak as much as they can, when you mess up your current note streak will add a percentage to the spades, the bar doesn't have to be full.



[top]Roadmap

First off, good luck on taking on what is arguably the most expensive s ever.


*MAKE THE DECISION RIGHT NOW* if you are going to achieve the keyboard trainers VIA glitch. IF you are going to do it this way DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE UPDATE! otherwise you will not be able to do this on your save file. Once you download the update your save file is not backwards compatible, so you can achieve the trophy this way but you run the risk of accidentally killing your save file (see PRO KEYS GRADUATE description for details)

Other than that...
1. Follow the prompts calibrate your system. Afterwards, go to customize and create a character and edit your Band to get started.

2. Find Endless Setlist III and play on EXPERT. Hit START - OPTIONS - check NO FAIL You will knock out a BUNCH of goals and get your rank up. Play your best instrument, I recommend playing the guitar to make as much progress towards HOPO-cidal maniac (see HOPO-cidal Maniac for details) as you can, ensure you hit the hammer-ons and pull-offs WITHOUT strumming and do as many guitar solos as you can via finger tapping.

3. Do the Challenges, it is likely you will have to do ALL of them, even the ones without trophies to get a high enough rank to unlock the last one, if you have done Endless Setlist III AND all of the other challenges either move on to other trophies (you get fans for completing goals) I would play your BEST instrument and find the goal for ROCK BAND IMMORTAL (see Rock Band Immortal for details).

4. Goals, if you still cannot access the final challenge then you should grab your favorite instrument go to Career - My Goals and start hammering out various goals to increase your fan base.

5. Cleanup, Find what trophies you need and get rocking!

6. Pay off the debt/favors you racked up buying the instruments for the

The Endless Setlist III
Successfully completed "The Endless Setlist III"!

Another one of these... however unlike RB2 there is no difficulty requirement so pick your favorite instrument and play at your comfort level. You can restart songs and change difficulty mid-way through.

There are a couple ways to access the playlist to get it started.

Method 1:
Play Now - Quickplay - Play a Setlist - The Endless Setlist III

Method 2:
Career - My Goals - Epic Rock Band 3 - Second Block from the Left (Purple Octopus)

There are 83 total songs on RB3.
I would personally sing on Easy at the same time and switch out instruments every 25 songs to get progress towards -

Guitar Apprentice
Bass Apprentice
Drums Apprentice
Keys Apprentice
Pro-Guitar Apprentice
Pro-Bass Apprentice
Pro-Keys Apprenticer
Vocal Apprentice


Just pick the ones you can play on expert if you can, remember you must 5 - Star the entire disc on Expert at one point.
To switch out instruments just add one by hitting Start then on the one you are done with, either hit Start - Drop Out or unplug the transmitter.

You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet
Maintained overdrive for 60 Seconds.

In Goals under Rock Band - Overdrive

Simple if you have a few players, just time your OD deployment for right before someone else dies (Hitting the SELECT button on guitars WILL activate Overdrive so if your guitar is touchy and you want perfect timing I would do that instead of flailing about)

If you are trying to do this solo
There are a few songs that work but mostly DLC or older RB songs.

Sorry - Guns and Roses (I did it with this one, lots of sustain overdrives whammy bar makes this easy)
The Kill - 30 Seconds to Mars
Are You Gonna Be My Girl - Jet

Millionaire Club
Got 1,000,000 on one song.

In Goals Under Rock Band - Score

Don't Fear (The Reaper) - Blue Oyster Cult

HOPO-cidal Maniac
Killed 53,596 Hammer-ons and Pull-offs.

Progress in my goals is under Guitar - Epic Guitar Goals
IF you sit down and try to grind this trophy you may turn into a HOMICIDAL maniac The best bet for this trophy is to work on all the others before focusing on this one. You must also do this one on Guitar, oddly since it shows up under Epic Guitar goals you cannot use the Bass. There are a couple of songs that net you a good chunk of HOPOs. Playing Solos (only the HOPO notes) with the Solo Buttons will get you add-ons to this total as well.
If you want to find out your average on a song find the Goal and select it, then play a song. Remember the number it started as it will give you a screen showing your total updated instantly under your score, keep in mind that RESETTING a song will delete your HOPO progress on that song.

[top]
Guitar Apprentice
5 Starred on Easy Guitar (or 3 Starred on a higher difficulty) 25 Rock Band 3 songs.

My goals under Guitar - Easy Song Progress

If you play Guitar, you will likely achieve this during Endless Setlist III, must be ROCK BAND 3 songs.
Otherwise you can see how many songs you have done in your goals section.

[top]
Bass Streaker
Get a streak of 500 notes on Bass.

My goals under Bass - General Bass Goals

You can play this from your goals to get a streak counter under your score.

Easiest song I played on RB3 for this is

Just Like Heaven - The Cure on Hard or Expert.

[top]
Most Authentic Strummer
Hit 100% of the notes, only strumming up, on Hard Bass.

My goals under Bass - Authentic Bass Goals

I would recommend getting this on Hard and not Expert unless you are confident
Easier songs found

Drum Roll, Please!
Nailed a drum roll.

My goals under Drums - General Drum Goals

Drum Rolls are pretty easy to spot they will have a long sustain effect bubble around either one repetitive note or two notes if they want you to go back/forth between the few. You do not have to be 100% accurate inside the drum rolls as long as you are close.

Songs that I know of that have drum rolls.

If you are good at playing guitar and have unlocked the "Keys" option for guitar play you shouldn't have an issue.

If you play from your goals you will have a streak counter below your score.
I have found Two songs (the DLC) to be a little easier to do. I did NOT do this on Pro Keys.

Difficulty has no bearing, so if you are struggling on keys do it on easy or medium. Trophy should unlock at the end of the song.

Is this Just Fantasy
Nailed all triple awesomes in "Bohemian Rhapsody".

My Goals under Vocal Harmony - General Harmony Goals

Even though it does not say so you MUST do this one Medium or higher, I suggest you do it on Medium if you try on Hard or Expert more power to you for you Sir or Ma'am are a true vocal god/goddess and have friends deserving of such a title.

This trophy is a nightmare you will need friends who are willing to play the same song for literally HOURS to get this one right.

There may be a way to download MIDI tracks to help with this and there are several videos detailing the Process.

Vocals Showmanship
Deployed overdrive four times in a single song as a vocalist.

My goals under Vocals - General Vocals Goals

Pretty simple, difficulty does not have any bearing, pick a long song and it will happen if you remember to deploy every-time the bar is half-filled.
You will likely get it on one of the challenges if you attempt then on Vocals, there are a few that require you to go into OD as much as possible.

Tambourine Master
Hit 100% of the notes in a percussion section.

My goals under Vocals - General Vocals Goals

Doesn't have to be a Rock Band 3 song. Just hit all the tap notes in a percussion section, if you cannot tap button will do the trick as well.

Vocal Virtuoso
Earn an Awesome rating on at least 90% of the phrases in 6 songs on Hard Vocals.

My Goals under Vocals - General Vocals Goals

If you play vocals a lot then this shouldn't be an issue. Talking sections will count IF they say AWESOME after the section.

Find the songs you are comfortable with and give it a go!
