    On any song on any difficulty in career or quickplay, get very close to the end of the song then strum like crazy so you fail, therefore getting this achievement.

    If you don't know when any of the songs end, do Closer (bonus song). Once you have no more notes coming up and hear the bass playing out, that's your cue to strum like crazy.

    Selly49It's surprisingly hard to fail a song that close to the end, but using a song you know well helps a lot. However, starting to lower the rock meter early is also a good idea.

    I failed at 94% on "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" - and I started to "make mistakes" during the solo! That way when I knew the end was approaching it took less crazy strumming to finish off.

    This can be unlocked on any difficulty but the higher the difficulty the quicker you can fail out

    The shortest song in the game is Mississippi Queen (Second tier or Career) and on expert its easy to tell once you are passed 90% of the song as 90% is just after the third triple chord (Green, Yellow and Blue)
    The song is easy enough that any medium player can manage it.

    As soon as you are passed the third triple chord, strum (Or press the buttons on the controller) fast to fail the song.

    This can be unlocked on any song but this song is my suggestion as its the shortest

    Here's a video demonstration on expert(I was using a 360 controller)

    A Good song to do for this acheivement is Raining Blood. When you hear the Aftermath (second bit that sounds like lightning) just strum like mad or press the buttons like mad if you are on a controller
