    This should work, I had a video of the same method but with an out of date method (thanks to BanditBanks for informing me on the updated video). The description of the video tells you what to do but this of course requires 3 microphones and probably speakers as laptop speakers usually will not work. Hope this helps

    TrombonafideSomeone on PS3 Trophies provided a set of videos to get this achievement. You'll either need to sing the blue line or use the second video with a second device. Syncing the two took me a good while, but it eventually worked.

    No, I have yet to get this achievement but there are some tips which you can use when trying for it.

    1) Play on Medium This song is already hard to sing decently!
    2) Use three Microphones with three players, they can be connected by a USB hub (one came packaged with Rock Band 1) or you can use the two USB ports in the front and one in the back. Headsets and Kinect cannot be used as microphones.
    3) Be aware of what setting the Pitch Correction is on. Pitch Correction doesn't affect what the game picks up, but what it throws out of your speakers. The problem is that if I am not hitting the note, I sound like I am, and will end up with a "Messy" at the end of the phrase because I think I'm doing it right.
    4) Someone has to sing lead when Freddie is singing solo. When you have harmonies, it doesn't matter who sings what, as long as you all sing different 'lines', Microphone 1 can be a backup singer at these points. It doesn't matter if you 100% the solo sections.
    5) Don't hum! I'm an idiot for suggesting this before, singing is better and assists you in hitting notes!
    6) I noticed that if you don't play in your correct octave that you are supposed to be playing, then the game will think that you are playing a different part in the Harmony, and you are likely to miss the Triple Awesome. Ignore everything I said about octave abuse, go for learning it and singing properly, it really is the only way to do it...apart from ... you know.
    7) There are 32 Triple Harmonies in this song. You must get all of them in one run of the song.
    8) PRACTICE! This achievement really is dastardly.

    The goal is located in Harmony - Epic Harmony Goals

    Remember same notes, in different octaves will still count!

    The above video is helpful for practice when you are not near the xbox. The left speaker plays the sine wave (pitch guide) for Harmony 1 and the right speaker plays the sine wave for Harmony 2. If you can block out one speaker, you can use the other as a guide for practice.

    Here's the lyrics, each line denotes a different phrase, the bold denotes a phrase that has a Triple Awesome, and italics show different lyrics sung by harmony parts.
    Is this the real life?
    Is this just fantasy?
    Caught in a landslide
    No escape from reality
    Open your eyes
    Look up to the skies and see
    Ooh I'm just a poor boy poor
    boy I need no sympathy Be
    -cause I'm easy come
    Little high, little low
    Ooh Any way the wind blows
    Doesn't really matter to me

    To me

    Ma ma, just killed a man
    Put a gun against his head
    Ma ma, life had just begun
    But now i've gone and thrown it all away
    Ma ma, ooh
    Didn't mean to make you cry
    If i'm not back again this time tomorrow
    Carry on, carry on
    As if nothing really matters

    Too late, my time has come
    Sends shivers down my spine, body's aching all the time
    Goodbye everybody, i've got to go
    Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
    Ooh Ma ma ooh Any way the wind blows
    Ooh I don't wanna die
    I sometimes wish i'd never been born at all Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

    I see a little silhouetto of a man
    Scaramouche Scaramouche will you do the fandango?
    Thunderbolts and lightning, very very frightning me

    Galileo, Galileo, Galileo, Galileo
    Galileo, Figaro
    Magnifico Oh Oh
    I'm just a poor boy nobody loves me
    He's just a poor boy from a poor family
    Spare him his life from monstrosity

    Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?
    Bismillah No! We will not let you go
    Let him go Bismillah we will not let you go
    Let him go Bismillah we will not let you go
    Let me go we will not let you go
    Let me go we will not let you go never never never let me go! oh
    No no no no no no no

    Oh ma-ma-mia ma-ma mia
    Ma-ma-mia let me go
    Beelzebub has the devil put aside for me
    For me
    For ME?


    So you think you stone me and spit in my eye?
    So you think you could love me and leave me to die?
    Oh baby
    Can't do this to me baby
    Just gotta get out, just gotta get right out of here

    Ooh ooh ooh
    Oh yeah oh yeah


    Nothing really matters
    Anyone can see
    Nothing really matters
    Nothing really matters to me
    Any way the wind blows
