    The easiest way to unlock this achievement is to use some tape (I used an elastic band), to secure your whammy bar in a downward position - (it doesn't need to be fully down, so long as it's not in the normal position).

    From there, go to career, and then choose Number of the Beast (Final tier). You can select any difficulty, but why make it hard for yourself?

    Wanderer128For the bassists out there, just put the whammy bar in the palm of your hand and just strum up the whole time like we do.
