    Setup and Band Creation

    Unarguably the easiest handful of Rock Band 3 achievements, these four are earned for simply setting up your preferences and creating your band.

    • Tune Up (4 GS/Bronze) - Calibrate your audio/video setup.
    • Self-Made Dude or Lady (5 GS/Bronze) - Create a character.
    • Best. Name. Ever. (5 GS/Bronze) - Name your band.

    Rock Band 3 Achievement Guide - Performance

    Band Gameplay   This set of Rock Band 3 achievements are awarded based on the quality of your performance. Most are self-explanatory, but a couple require some instruction.

    • You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet (20 GS/Bronze) - Maintain Overdrive for 60 seconds. This is technically possible playing solo on certain songs, but is far easier to do with at least one other player. Basically, as one player's Overdrive is ending, have the next player begin their Overdrive; repeat until you hit 60 seconds.
    • Millionaire Club (25 GS/Bronze) - Get 1,000,000 on one song. The more players the better for this achievement, as everyone's score is totaled together at the end of the song.
    • Rock Band Master (25 GS/Bronze) - 5-star on Medium (or 3-star on higher difficulties) any 50 Rock Band 3 songs. It does not matter which instrument you use for a song, as long as each song is 5-starred with at least one instrument it counts towards this total.
    • Rock Band Legend (30 GS/Silver) - 5-star on Hard any 50 Rock Band 3 songs.
    • Rock Band Immortal (50 GS/Silver) - 5-star on Expert any 50 Rock Band 3 songs.
    • Alex's Luggage Combination (30 GS/Bronze) - Beat a Rock Band 3 score of 12,345,678. This is actually a lot easier than it sounds as it combines all the score totals of every song you've played.
