To unlock the Bat Guitar, get five stars on each song during Career Mode on Easy difficulty. To battle with Lou using Easy Mode notes, try the following. When the battle with Lou begins (on Expert Mode), strum without holding any frets down. When you lose, select the Tutorial option at the Game Over menu. Do the Guitar Battle Tutorial and play through it in its entirety. After the "Lesson Complete" message appears on-screen and the next fret board appears, pause the game and exit. This will bring you back to the Lessons menu. From here, press the red button, which will bring you back to the list of songs. The battle with Lou should be highlighted. Choose the song, and Lou's note chart will be set to Easy Mode now. Your note chart will still be in Expert Mode, but Lou's will be in easy mode. To unlock the Beach Life Bass, complete Co-op Mode on hard. First off you have to have 2 xbox profiles. Start GH3 and sign into the profile you dont want to beat the boss on. Go to cheat menu and turn on "No Fail" and "Easy Expert". Back out to main menu. Go to quick play, then choose "Expert" and then choose "Slow Ride". Play like the 1st 10 notes, when you get to the long orange note, click start and go to main menu. Sign out, then sign into your profile you want to beat the boss on. Then go straight to career and go to the boss battle. The computer will miss all his notes and lose within a few seconds. To unlock any boss characters as playable character, simply beat them in the game and they will become unlocked. Complete the indicated task to unlock the corresponding character.
Elroy Budvis: Already available for purchase at the store for $10,000.
Lou: Successfully complete the game to purchase Lou for $15,000. Lou comes with his skeleton guitar.
MetalHead: Already available for purchase at the store for $10,000.
Slash: Defeat him in the Boss battle in Career mode to unlock him for purchase at the store for $10,000.
Tom Morello: Defeat him in the Boss battle in Career mode to unlock him for purchase at the store for $10,000. To unlock the Distant Visitor Guitar, complete Career Mode on Expert difficulty. 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. 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. 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. 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. On "Through The Fire And Flames", before you use Star Power, pause Game Play. Hold Back, 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. 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. 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). 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. 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. To unlock the El Jefe Guitar, complete Career Mode on expert with five stars. From the main menu go to options then down to cheats go to enter cheat. When you are entering the cheats you must hold the frets (G,R,Y,B or O) and then strum them in this specific order:
G=green fret R=red fret Y=yellow fret B=blue O=orange.
(GR_BO) (GRYB_) (GRY_O) (G_BYO) (GRYB_) (_RYBO) (GRYB_) (G_YBO) (GRYB_) (GRY_O) (GRY_O) (GRYB_) (GRY_O)
Note: no sounds will play when you strum these chords. - Sent by [BigBen] First attain the correct sum of cash to get the stuff normally; then buy them. Following the achievement blip, return to the xbox dashboard but don't return to the game's store menu. Restart the game and you'll still have all the money. You can unlock Tom Morello (of Rage Against the Machine), Slash (of Guns N Roses/Velvet Revolver), Lou (the Devil in the game), and a character called MetalHead by beating them in the game and then purchasing them for $10,000 (Lou costs $15,000). 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.

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.
