I. The Achievements
There are currently 49 achievements worth 1000 gamerscore.
I would consider this one of the easiest Music games to fully
complete.  Nothing is that challenging in it.  It is still a 
fun game, but not for someone looking for challenge.  The
reason it isn't that challenging is because it is more for
the whole family and you can tell Activision/Neversoft
are trying to get new people involved in the game.

A. Welcome to Band Hero
  - Complete the Tutorials 5G
  - You must complete all tutorials.  Gameplay, Guitar, Bass,
    Vocals, Drums and Band.

B. Rise to Fame
  - Complete 25% of the gigs in Career 25G
  - If you are playing straight through each and every song.
    YOu will get this by the end of the second venue.

C. Nation's Star
  - Complete 50% of the gigs in Career  20G
  - If you are playing straight through each and every song.
    YOu will get this by the end of the fifth venue.

  - See Shine

F. Sparkle

G. Shine
  - Earn 555 Stars in Career 30G
  - Probably the quickest way to get this is to play all songs
    first on beginner vocals.  Just put the mic in front of a
    fan and let each song play.  This will net you 6 stars on
    each song.  

H. Platinum Blonde
  - Earn Platinum level on a Career Challenge 10G
  - You can read the challenge for a song when you click on the
    song.  There are Guitar, Bass, Vocals, Drums and Band
    challenges.  If you are playing online in someone else's career
    and they do a challenge, it counts for your career even if you
    aren't playing the same instrument.  The first few challenges
    are probably the easiest.  Note that most challenges must be
    don't on expert, but not all.  You can play around a bit and
    find an easy one to get Platinum or even diamond on.

I. Iced Out

  - Same as Platinum Blonde except you need Diamond.  There are
    around 75 challenges in the game.

    with challenges you can't do.
