Doing this will give you: Tune Up Self-Made Dude or Lady Best. Name. Ever Rock Band 3 doesn't have the traditional Career encountered on previous itterations of the series, so all of the remaining trophies will be divided in the three categories described below. Trainers and Lessons By succesfully completing the trainers and lessons for Pro instruments, you'll receive the following trophies: Drum Trainer Initiate (Pro Drums) Drum Trainer Graduate (Pro Drums) Power Chords (Pro Guitar) Complex Chords (Pro Guitar) Pro Keys Graduate (Pro Keys) IMPORTANT: You can use the "Pause/Rewind Trick" on all trainers and lessons. More details on the Trophy Description for "Pro Keys Graduate" Road Challenges New to the Rock Band franchise, Rock Band 3 brings you the Road Challenges. Each Road Challenge consists of a series of setlists that can be pre-defined, random or user created. Each setlist is attached to a specific goal (reach a certain note streak, deploy Overdrive as much as you can, etc). By succesfully completing these goals you'll receive "Spades". The more Spades you get on a Challenge, more rewards you'll get at the end of the Challenge. These are the goals you'll encounter on Road Challenges: All For One: You have to hit almost every note on each section of a song. If you're playing in a band, all members must hit a high % of notes on each song. Overdrive Chain: You must maintain overdrive (OD) for as long as possible. If you're playing solo, wait until your OD bar is full before activating it. If you're playing in a Band, you can alternate the activations, just make sure that at least one member has OD activated. Overdrive Overload: You must activate OD as many times as possibles. As soon as you get a 50% bar, activate it. Overdrive Streak: Here, you're rewarded for using Overdrive without breaking streak. Try to keep a streak while overdrive is activated. Only the first streak counts, so if you miss the first note after activating, you lose the entire activation. Optimized Overdrive: You must activate your OD only when you're on the max multiplier (6x for Bass and 4x for all the other instruments). Share The Spotlight: You have to keep a streak of notes when you're in the spotlight. If you're playing solo, the spotlight is always on you. Streakmania: You (or another member of your band) have to keep a streak of notes. TIP: You can do the Road Challenges on any difficulty. Try them on Easy or Medium if you're having trouble getting 5 Stars and/or 5 Spades.
