Name of achievement- "8th Wonder"
Description- "You completed the song Through The Fire And Flames with 4 stars or more as the Guitarist on Expert."

In order to get this, I believe you have to score around 402,000 points or more to get at least four stars. I can't really offer the best advice on this song because I am only ok at it. However, I will try.

1) Learn the intro and take advantage of the purple notes. The intro is slightly different from GH3 but easier IMO.

2) Set goals for yourself throughout the song to keep you on track. For example, at the end of the intro and the rampaging dragons (strumming part) right at the break, I aim to have at least 60k, and if I don't get it, I just start over so I don't waste my time. There are a few other spots to do this as well so take advantage of this to help save time.

3) Use hyperspeed! For those still unfamiliar about it, what it does is space out the notes making them easier to see. The higher the number (1-5), the more spaced out they are. The cheat is R,G,B,Y,G,Y,R,R (with each letter representing the first letter of the color of the fret, and no strumming or crazy chords this time around!) I personally like to use HS5, but for those just getting used to it, I would start out lower like @ 1 or 2.

4) Watch the video! This is Danny "GuitarHeroPhenom/Phenomman" Johnson. He's a pretty good player, at least for his time. Granted since I made this solution years ago, much better players have come out. But since he always does a hands video to go along with the chart, you may get an idea on what to tap and how to as well. Also, he uses a proper starpower path for those trying to figure out where to use it. Finally, he usually (might not have any yet, but I'm sure they are coming) makes tutorial videos for difficult songs like this so be sure to check them out. *He has a few different tutorials for those still wondering how to perform well on GH3's chart in case anyone was wondering.*
(edit-sorry, the video was taken down on Phenom's channel and reposted, so here's the video again.)
