In Dawn of the Chordead, you have to play a large variety of chords at random, to evaporate the undead raining down on you. You are required to play each presented chord within a time limit, or else the undead will reach you. When they reach you, you lose life, which doesn't regenerate. As your score increases, you are required to be faster, and the chords get harder.

There is an exploit in the game mechanics, that makes this achievement much easier to obtain. It still takes skill, but it is much less tiring.

Instead of playing the entire chord, you can just play the notes on the purple(e) and the green(B) string, and it should register as the chord.

Say a F barre chord is presented; you will just play the first fret on the purple string, and the first fret on the green string. If a open G chord is presented, you will play the third fret on the purple string, and an open green. This tactic works for most chords.

This method doesn't work for some chords, there are a few such as the open D chord, that often don't work with just two notes, so you can also add the orange string(G) into the mix if you want to be safer.
