    This achievement calls for 1000 note streak. The easiest way to do this for slightly above average players or lower, like myself, is "Famous Last Words" on MEDIUM. I wanted to post this as a solution for players like myself who aren't experts. Full credit goes to DarkSynopsis who posted this in the comment section of another solution.

    Flopsy86Good find, didn't think that My Chemical Romance - Famous Last Words had that many notes on Medium but I guess it is enough.

    Get a 1000 note streak. This can be done on "Free Bird" on Medium. I got this achievement on "Famous Last Words" (My Chemical Romance DLC) on hard.

    I found the easiest way to get this achievement (for me at least) was X-Stream by Voivod on Hard.

    Please note that you need to purchase this song from the shop using in-game cash, as it isn't available right from the start. (Thanks to bonster20 for that clarification).

    Derek1337bonster20 -- Thanks for the heads-up. I forgot that you had to purchase the song in-game. I'll add that to the solution if I still can this late. :)

    bonster20Thanks for adding that. Great solution! And I finally got this after a couple sessions of trying.

    Derek1337Congrats! Feels good, doesn't it? I remember always getting so nervous as I neared the 800-900 note mark.
