For those not blessed with the skill or stamina (or competent friends) to play a long and quite difficult song on expert, fear not... this song is highly doable on medium/hard, provided you are able to score 98% or higher on those difficulties. I played hard bass with all the other instruments on medium and we scored around 2.3 million this way... the key to high scores is to maintain streaks for a x4 multiplier and to utilise star power at the same time; higher difficulties give you more notes and therefore more points are possible, but if you keep breaking streaks then you will find you score higher on lower difficulty. We found it helped to have the vocalist (who has very little to do in the second half of the song when the bulk of the notes are) keep an eye on the meter for us so we weren't distracted by checking it and tell us when we had enough to deploy it... the thing that cost us the achievement first attempt was people missing notes while glancing at the rock meter, or our drummer breaking his streak while activating star power when there wasn't enough. Teamwork is the key... there's no 'I' in "Free As A Band" after all ;)
