    If you don't have this after completing both run of the quest, you need to play some songs in quest mode.

    The quickest way is probably to play "Fury Of The Storm" in the very last quest on expert bass. That should bag you about 2,800 gems per run.

    If you find the strumming too fast on the Dragonforce song, you could do “Hard To See” under Lars' quest on expert bass. It will give you about 12-1300 gems per run.

    Good luck.

    sjpsjpsjpIt's under "My Rock Record" on the first menu, the servers are a little wonky, so you may need to check again if it fails the first time.

    The best way to do this without effort is to put a turbo controller with A button held down on Deadfall by Snot under the final venue in quest mode. This is a very fast vocal song that you can do on beginner vocals and use the fan trick. I both achievements without ever even using a guitar in quest mode.

    IMPORTANT!- Back up your save on a usb stick before you start. Do this by going to options and saving your game, then pick usb stick as your destination. Once saved, remove the stick and go for it. This game has been known to corrupt saves from time to time if playing alot of songs in a row.

    Just before attempting this go into options and hit load game, then hit the B button to cancel. Hit continue without saving. This will make it so it does not save after every song and doesn't give the game a chance to glitch. When you wake up in the morning just go back to the same menu and save to keep your progress.

    Markyshizzlei think it only took me a night or 2 while sleeping.

    ApesAteMyFleshIt felt like it took 7 years (my impatience showing here), but this method absolutely worked. Thanks!

    sjpsjpsjpThanks; this worked a charm. About 4 hours of this was all I needed (although with the online servers now shutdown, I had no idea how close I was.)

    For others: It appears that a 100% streak with vocals on medium gives you a 52 note streak. The song is about 2:40 long, which will give you about 1170 notes per hour on this method

    If you can't play good on Expert difficulty with the songs that have over 1,000+ notes in them... You can play Fortunate Son on Hard/Expert Bass. The Song is only 2 mins 30 seconds long, and has approx 597 on hard and 629 notes on expert.

    The song is super easy. Even if you can't play much on Hard difficulty... this song is Cake.

    The vocals trick listed above works wonders too. If you have a turbo controller, just turbo the A button and you are set.
