    You're going to need to utilize your multipliers to the best of your abilities to get 5 stars for this achievement. Remember, there are 3 things you can do that doubles your multiplier:

    As in most games like this, try to save your euphoria for areas that have a lot of notes and activity to earn the most points. Remember that crossfading happens automatically, so if you know there's a part with complex crossfading or crossfade spikes, start your euphoria just before that section. You can also have up to 3 euphorias saved up, although once you activate it, it goes through all saved units. You can gain more euphoria while it's activated if you complete another euphoria phrase, however.

    In a lot of respects, this works like euphoria. Once you earn a rewind, wait until there's a stretch on the track with lots of taps and crossfades, etc. Hit all of them, then bust your rewind to earn a double multiplier for the entire stretch that's being repeated. You can only have one rewind at a time, so be sure to use it soon if you can in a good area. Keep in mind also that if you go through a euphoria phrase and mess it up, you may use a rewind to skip back and try to get that euphoria phrase again! It's a second chance for getting another euphoria.

    *Effects Dial*
    Finally, during an effects zone, turning the effects knob will double the multiplier as well. Turn it quickly back and forth for some easy points and a free multiplier. This also applies to any crossfading, taps, and scratches that you do while the effects zone is activated, but only if you are moving the effects dial while performing these actions. Only do this when you're comfortable, though. You don't want to break your streak worrying too much about moving the effects knob during a lot of other activity.

    And a final reminder, since rewind automatically gives you a double multiplier, try not to activate it and euphoria at the same time unless you have to. That way you can drag your double multiplier out as long as you can.
    If you keep these in mind, you'll be 5-starring songs on hard easily and rack up huge scores, sometimes even 500K+

    Don't be hasty just beat it on medium and work your way up. Groundhog is annoying as hell at first but with practice you can beat it easy, and if you can do Groundhog on hard then you can do it on expert with a little bit more effort because the parts where you earn the majority of your points are the same. Also remember, rewinds are jesus in this game exept the guitar setlist where they are not enabled.
    Showing both comments.
    Guirec730Even after quite a bit of practice, I couldn't get the last lightbulb in Groundhog without letting my girlfriend twist the effects dial on the back and forth fading sections toward the beginning. Those are clutch, as is getting many rewinds (at least 3) before he says "that was easy". Should have 2 stars by then to eke it out.

    Noticed that there wasn't 5 star cutoffs listed anywhere and would be helpful for whichever songs you are struggling with. These are only approximate and not exact but these scores are really close to 5* on Hard difficulty

    Before tackling this, I suggest you make sure you're holding the deck the right way, make sure it is your thumb on the outside of the turntable and not your pinky, this will ensure better control over the turning of the turntable. In other words, buttons right means use left hand and buttons left means use right hand. If you're thinking of moving onto expert then this is important.

    The game will not penalise you for moving the turntable provided you are not pressing any buttons that you shouldn't be at the time so don't think you have to keep it perfectly still all the time.

    Concerning the Effects dial, I learned that it is better to use one finger to turn the dial rather than use 2 fingers because using one finger allows the rest of your fingers to be nearer the crossfader and it means less risk to missing crossfades.

    With Rewinds, you get a rewind at every 50 note streak, however you can only have one rewind and until you use this rewind, the game won't even start counting towards another rewind until this rewind is used up (back at where you originally used it).
    For example: If you use rewind at 59 note streak and once the rewind is used up (back at where you originally used it), assuming you haven't messed up during the rewind or after then you will get your next rewind at 109 note streak.
    When making rewinds, try and make sure you do a 360 revolution and then stop the turntable near the buttons, don't make it spin multiple times otherwise you are almost certain to miss the notes. Also make sure you don't accidently hit the buttons during a rewind, this could be the difference between a x8 and a x2 multiplier!

    And for crossfade spikes, I found that you do not have to return the crossfade all the way back to the middle but you only have to bring it halfway back towards the middle and the game will count it as returning to the middle. This helps out a lot with sections where there are many spikes in a row that are on the same side, but doesn't help with the alternating spikes sadly, that really requires good timing and listening to the track.

    Keep in mind that for the Guitar and DJ tracks (at the bottom), you cannot use rewinds so these will be harder to 5 star and require more effort.

    Some notes for especially hard tracks:

    Groundhog: You must be able to get 2-3 rewinds off in the first 2 sections to have a chance at this. In the 3rd and 4th sections, the easiest sections to combo are where the crossfades are going from left to right and back to left constantly and there is a constant pace of red taps. There are 2 sections like this and you can easily earn rewinds on these with practice. Although it is easy points between song sections (where the track is mocking you) try and resist using Euphoria or Rewinds because the points earned here are minuscule.

    Rockit: I found this much harder than Groundhog, this song really makes you work for a 5 star. I saved Euphoria for when the crazy left and right crossfading with spikes sections came along, making sure I hit the single directional scratches to keep 8x.
    However, I saved the rewinds for the areas of constant green scratches, these are near the beginning and there is an extended section about halfway through. I would personally avoid using rewinds during the crossfades unless you can handle it without messing up.
    This song pretty much goes Scratching section, Crossfading section, Scratching section, Crossfading section.

    I Heard it through the Grapevine/Let's Dance: The only things that make this song hard is the Euphoria in choke zones and the difficulty of getting rewinds. There are a lot of fast crossfade spikes on this song and if you have Euphoria then save them for these because getting rewinds on this song will help a lot. This song is only about 2-3 minutes long so if you get off to a bad start, you are better off starting over.

    Monkey Wrench/Sabotage: The hardest of the guitar tracks in my opinion, but only because the song seems out of sync on the green stream, you have to hit the green stream scratches and taps slightly earlier than it says. Blue crossfades seem out of sync also. I always make sure the Euphoria at the very start is hit because there are crossfade spikes about 30-40 secs in followed by crossfades, I use the Euphoria just as the spikes start and it lasts until the end of the crossfades and you don't have to move it at all. This should get you to 45,000 pts assuming you haven't messed up to this point.
    There are more crossfade spike sections later in the song but concentrate on getting the Euphoria for now, even if you mess up a few times you can still get the Euphoria and 5 star this song, it's all about where you use the Euphoria.
    If rewinds were allowed, this song would not be as hard as it was to 5 star.

    Beats and Pieces: Not exactly difficult on hard but can catch you out if you're not used to 5 minutes of constant scratching. There are 8 sections to this song and each section gets progressively harder, so if this one is a struggle then focus on the first 4 sections because if you master those then you have 5 starred the song before the last 4 sections.
    There aren't many crossfades in this song so this one will require effort to 5 star. This song gets even worse on expert so count yourselves lucky, it jumps to being the hardest song in the game (next to Rockit).

    Satisfaction/Elements of Life: This song has a high 5 star cutoff and is mostly a tapping song and will test your switching between the buttons on the deck. If you can do the taps then most likely you will get this in a few tries. The good news is taps are worth a ton of points under 8x multiplier.

    Daft Punk Megamix 1 and 2: Daft Punk tracks are difficult in this game, these songs both have high 5 star cutoffs and they are multiple Daft Punk tracks strung together. Not much advice I can give on these other than use what you have learned and keep that streak.
