    Solution:

    Although the description says to beat one of the creators of the game, there is an alternative way to obtain this achievement. These achievements are called viral achievements.

    Find someone who already has this achievement, invite them to any Xbox LIVE multiplayer versus game and win. You can play any versus game mode you want, including FACE-OFF, PRO FACE-OFF, or BATTLE MODE. How to play and the differences between game modes are listed below.

    To play notes with the guitar controller, hold the corresponding colored fret button(s) that appear on the highway before the note/chord approaches the strike line, then strum UP or DOWN when the note/chord lines up with the strike line. Sustains (long notes) are played the same way, except you need to hold the fret button(s) until the note ends.

    In FACE-OFF or PRO FACE-OFF:
    When playing FACE-OFF, each player may choose their own preferred difficulty with playable sections of the song being split or played simultaneously.
    When playing PRO FACE-OFF, both players must play on the same difficulty for the entire song.
    Get more points than the other player by playing notes. The rock meter in the center indicates which player is currently winning.
    Star Power can be obtained by hitting sequences of highlighted notes. You can also use the Whammy Bar on sustains (long notes) to gain more star power.
    Once you have enough Star Power (a glowing half-full bar), tilt the guitar controller (or press the "Back" button cn_back) to activate it and double your score for a limited time.
    Both players must play the entire song and there is no way to fail if you miss too many notes.
    The winner is determined by the player who holds the most points by the end of the song.
    The achievement unlocks when the game says you won.

    In BATTLE MODE:
    Obtain attack power-ups by hitting sequences of highlighted notes in a similar fashion to Star Power.
    Once you have an attack power-up, tilt the guitar controller (or press the Back button cn_back) to throw the attack power-up at the other player.
    Being attacked by the other player may require you to fix your fret button (press the same colored fret button repeatedly) and/or whammy bar (use the whammy bar repeatedly) to play notes again.
    Defeat the other player by obtaining and launching power-ups at them to make them miss notes and fail the song, even if they are playing well. This is done by tilting the guitar controller (or pressing the "Back" button cn_back).
    The achievement unlocks when the game says you won.

    NOTE: You can also use a regular Xbox 360 controller if you don't have a guitar controller. Click on the spoiler link to show a list of these controls.

    D0NALDRockI just got this achievement today while playing Co-op, just randomly, so I’m not sure how

    lightsup55@D0NALDRock, can you check your recent players on Xbox 360 and compare games with that Gamertag? More than likely, they already had the achievement and you got it from them.

    As for getting it in co-op, I never tried giving to someone else via co-op. Apparently it is possible?

    This is a viral achievement, so just play against someone who has it to get it. Pretty much have to get lucky for this one.
