    MoostardI did it local with a friend and it didn't pop... Does it have to be in band play or quick play or over live or should it not matter?

    MjolnerdI was a little skeptical about whether point totals like this were really possible on these difficulties, and as it turns out, YES, they are. I tried four times today over Live and we got 505,000, 524,000, 499,000 and 518,000 -- the achievement didn't pop the first (or second) time we broke the half-million mark.

    We went back and tried a public match (one of us set up a match and the other found it by searching) and finally got it to pop (for both the host and the guest at the same time). I can't say whether it always needs to be done that way; a few achievements in this game seem to be unreliable like that. But that's what worked for us.

    TheDude7224-5 attempts, over 500k each time, no pop... friend hosted (popped for her but not me), so then I hosted, and nothing

    If you're going for the Higher Than Most achievement as well, then check out my solution for that. If you're getting closer and closer to getting that one, then you'll get this along the way.
    (I copy and pasted these tips from that solution)
    TIPS:
    1) Try to keep a good, long streak going before the alternate-strumming part. If you have around 400,000 by the tim the alt-strumming starts, you're in very good shape.
    2) Use Star Power as often as possible, try to use it as soon as you get it. Having full SP for the alt-strumming part will get you a lot of points. If the lead guitarist thinks they'll have trouble with the triplets solo, then save SP for it. No point in failing with a minute and a half left.
    3) Watch your score throughout the song. If you can't keep a good streak going during the end solo, then try to have a score of somewhere around 550,000 once the alt-strumming part ends.

    **NOTE** This is very important to know, me and Aero found this out the hard way. If you're playing online, only the HOST will get the achievement. So if both players are trying to get this, they'll have to have 1 person host and get it, and then switch hosts and do it again.

    After many tries in private matches with a friend, getting even up to 740k, being host, and no matter if I was bass or guitar, we tried something else : public matches, where he'd go through match-making to find mine. It popped up first try after that. If you are going for it online, just make it a public match!
