TL,DR? Check out the videos down the bottom.

Alrighty, stuff to get out of the way. Immensely difficult achievement. I believe the most difficult achievement in GH/RB history. Yes, much harder than Bloody Feet. Also as far as I can tell, you can NOT use Breakneck Speed (Super Speed) in the drum trainer mode. I don't use it m'self, but I know that will mess a lot of other people up.

This is obviously all from the perspective of a right-hander, all of this info still applies to our lefty friends, just obviously swap any occurrances of the words "Left" and "Right" around.

Lag Calibration
If you're having trouble with lag cal for drums;
My lag calibration settings for GD:RB are:
Audio 30ms.
Video 0ms.
As opposed to my RB2 settings of 0/0, so if you add 30ms to whatever YOUR RB2's audio lag setting is and apply it to GD:RB, you will hopefully get the same result, but I can't promise anything, everyone plays differently, you'll probably need to do a lot of fiddling to get it right.
(For the record, I'm still not 100% certain I've got it spot-on even for myself, but this will hopefully get you into the ballpark.)

Alternatively, you can export the GD:RB songs and practice the identical drum solo from Emenius Sleepus in RB2. You'll obviously still have to come back to GD:RB to get the achievement, but this way you'll be able to practice on a game which is already set up exactly how you like it.

Sticking Tutorial
Now obviously the last solo (#74) is the troublemaker, there are certainly others which are extremely difficult, but I think it's safe to say that if you can hit the last one you should be able to work out the others in due time. I have worked out some pretty good stickings for the solo, detailed in the below youtube videos.

The first video is a sticking tutorial, and the second video is my best effort so far, not placed here to brag, but it can help to be able to hear the solo at the near-correct speed, so this may help people moving up towards 80%, especially for listening to the snares in the weird outro bit.

Hopefully these stickings will work for you as well. You can try leading with your left instead of double-stroking for some, but I, personally had no luck at all doing that at any reasonable speed, but there are far better drummers than me out there.

As you're most likely aware, doublestroking at it's simplest, is hitting twice quickly with the same hand. As the bass beat for most of this solo is constant and steady, double-stroking will cause your leading hand to change, which means the bass hits will land at the same time your non-preferred hand does, until you return to natural sticking by double-stroking a second time, or by reaching a gap in the notes so you can return to leading with your preferred hand. This happens a few times during the solo using my sticking, so try and pay attention to it.

Youtube Sticking Tutorial and 80% FC Run.
The first video will be the sticking tutorial, with annotations pointing out exactly where and when I doublestroke, and how I cross-over for the last bit.

The second video is a simple FC (100%) video at 80% speed. This will give you an idea of what the solo's meant to sound like at speed, and is especially useful for getting used to how those pesky snares (Reds) in the outro sound.

Good luck with it. This will be a challenge for the best RB drummers in the world. If you get it, you're an utter madman, and I love you.
