For any achievement like this there is no guide, merely advice.

The truth is this achievement wont be possible for the majority of players. At the time of writing this guide only 10 out of 2,500 track players have achieved this! I will break down the song as best i can and give a few tips at the end that might help some players out.

The bulk of the song is fairly simple so i won't mention it. But one challenging part are the many fills you will run into periodically throughout the song. They generally include a steady bass pedal while you hit various toms at twice that speed. These toms do become more varied as the songs progress. It is important to note that the toms aren't as steady. You will have to hesitate or skip a hand from time to time. Or if you're like me it may be simpler in these parts to use only your strong hand.

There is one completely unique fill that gives many drummers trouble. It's a fairly simple beat, yet difficult because your off hand holds the beat. Therefore it must be faster then your strong hand and requires a great deal of coordination. If you are struggling with this portion I would suggest an attempt on LEFTY MODE (or righty if lefty is your natural preference). It may provide different challenges in other portions of the song, but for many the song will be slow enough to compensate.

There are 4 faster rolls in the song near the end. If you are struggling with these try to step it up a notch and strike the pads faster then necessary. Remember that you must hit 100% of the notes and extra notes will not count against you.

1. Know whats coming
2. Try using only your strong hand during the fills
3. Experiment with lefty mode
4. Break combo if you have to, just make sure you hit every single note


good luck =)
