    A tip to getting through longer, painful songs, is never, ever use your overdrive. This will allow you to get drum fills often. this will:
    1) give you a small rest
    2) allow you to skip a few notes
    3) you will have overdrive ready whenever you're in trouble

    With songs like Run To The Hills, I used the drum fills as an opportunity to pause it and give my arms a rest, then went back to mashing the red note for another few mintues.

    As a tip for "Dont Fear the Reaper", I played it probably 6-7 times, failing at the fast red notes and everything after that. To overcome this, I just made more and more runs at it until I went into those hard parts with full overdrive and a full crowd bar.

    My tip for Run to the Hills.
    Put rubber bands on the ends of your drum sticks for more bounce. PAUSE!!!! It doesn't matter if you are in the the middle of the fast red notes, when you resume, you know what will be coming up. Relax too. IF you don't get it first try, play something else and try again.

    One of the songs that will probably get alot of people new to Expert Drums is Run to the Hills. Constant stream of snares, coupled with the fact that the RB1 kit isn't as good as it should be can make this achievement hard to get. If you have the RB2 kit, use that. It makes life alot easier. Otherwise, just keep playing it and you'll eventually build up enough endurance to pass the song.
    Showing both comments.
    SteSteSte91Ha, did this on a GH drum kit which made things awkward as your playing the opposite on the kit than whats played on the song, if you get me. Like your playing the hi hat on the snare and the snare on the hi hat, yeah pretty awkward. I must say this requires alot of stamina. i mean i had to stop half way through. but i think the intro to foreplay is alot harder than this, because this is just a simple fast beat. Might take practise. but i thought i'd never pass foreplay and i eventually got use to the beat by listening to the track alot.

    OdadjianActualGood advice, it's true that Run to the Hills will ruin a LOT of people. A couple of years ago when I got this cheevo Run to the Hills was the last song I had to beat. But I have to nitpick juuuuust slightly. It's not a constant stream of snares. It's a constant stream of reds, and usually the red is the snare, but in songs like RTTH the red is a stream of hihats. =D
