    JohnnyInterfnkConfirming still works as of Jan 1st, 2020.

    (And yes, I got the achievement 13 years after I bought the game...).

    Gay Asian TwinsConfirming that this glitch still works (Jan 19, 2020).

    It took me about 50 attempts to finally nail the timing down. I find the easiest way to get it your first try is just to disconnect your controller as late as you possibly can before the menu usually pops. I guarantee it you'll get it each time. I got it first try each time.

    Thanks for posting this solution man.

    Gay Asian TwinsAlso one last important tip:

    In order to get 5 stars on each song, it has to be your very first attempt at the song. That means if you attempt this even on a 4 star song it will remain at 4 stars even at gold stars, so you'll have to create an entire new expert career and knock em out one by one. I get 5 stars each song now.

    The way i got this achievement is by saving all of my star power through the intro of the song and then tried getting as far through solo B as i could just before i was going to fail and use the star power.

    If you have the star power meter full and you use the star power near the end of solo B, it should last you to the beginning of solo D. Then you should be able to get through the rest of the song easy.


    Have fun trying to get this achievement

    JellophileJust want to add, that if you'd like to try to get a few extra points, if you hit the two initial star power phrases, if you activate star power at the exact moment you first earn it you'll end your star power RIGHT before the next bit of star power comes your way, and you'll have just enough to max out your meter again.

    I'd imagine you should get pretty good at the intro after failing over and over ;)
    I was at the point where I could get 100% up to the solos, which helped me win a small local tourney :-P

    I didn't have much trouble with this achievement, cause for some reason I was determined enough to beat the song on the ps2, where there was no reward ...

    Price de Nicethe good old days where you did something badass and the satisfaction was enough.

    VT PrfNutbutterYeah, I beat this song on the PS2 and the 360. I hate that that glitch exists.

    My advice for any song you can't beat, specially Jordan, Freebird, TTFAT, and Raining Blood, is don't use starpower untill the meter is red. Not flashing red, by then its too late. Also alternate strum powering through Jordan helped me beat it. Once you beat the first part of solo's. your home free. Its a slice of cake after that.

    Negative ZZTo point out that it is a universal tip you can use across any Guitar Hero game.

    Boots OrionI know I'm late to the party, but I believe that TTFAF is available as DLC for GH2. I may be wrong though.

    Negative ZZPretty sure it's not. It was a bonus song for GH3
