The Key to this is how slow the Overdrive bar decreases. I recommend Epic by Faith No More if you have the Rock Band 1 songs Exported. There are lots of Energy sections and the bar decreases very slowly. I got this on that song on Medium Guitar.
Thank you to Super Harold for the following information that greatly improves this solution. I am including the info he left as a comment word for word in the solution to improve the solution for everyone and make sure they see this info, so credit the following to him:
This solution DOES actually work and is easy! It is, however, missing a crucial bit of information – where in the song should you go into overdrive?
I assumed (as I’m sure many of you did) that it was before the solo, as there are lots of glowing note phrases there. However, this assumption is false, as the maximum you can get there (after wasting hours of my life) is 58 seconds.
To confirm, here is how (and where) to do it:
Song: Faith No More – Epic
- Build up your energy meter so that it is full when the solo begins.
- When you are about 75% of the way through the solo, go into overdrive.
- Be sure to use your whammy bar on the long glowing notes.
You need to go into overdrive before you can see the last set of glowing notes that appear in the solo. The amount of time you leave here is the key difference between success and failure. Do it too early and you’ll easily know you haven’t made it, as you will see a block of glowing notes, but your energy will run out before you can nail them all. Do it too late and you’ll be on about 55+ seconds. Use a stopwatch to time if you are going into overdrive at the right time.
It is pretty close (it isn’t possible to get much more than 60 seconds) so you might need a couple of tries before you nail it, but once you know what you are looking for, it’s a doddle.
