Just got this son of a gun...damn near FCed the song missing only 3-4 notes (Can't remember exactly), but with the correct star power path during the fast parts with the double red and yellow with the blue tied with the bass pedal it is very possible to get 450k...the score ended up being 463k.

Again, you can't miss more than 5 notes (Hyperdrums and correct calibration help with this, obviously :P)

Thats how I got my achievement, just played it on medium. The song is way too easy on medium so its quite easy to FC it.

That's good to know since I am not usually good enough to play well on Hard or Expert on drums, but can usually nail medium. Someone should get this info added to the achievement guide.

Ok, I'll try this out later today. I thought I would never get this. Thanks

How easy would you say it is? As easy as Assassin on Medium? That took me quite a while to do (And I ended up stabbing my eye with the drum stick over it), but I got it in the end.

I'm not that good on the drums and if this isn't too hard, I'll be glad. :)

its funny how a group of us achievemnt junkies seem to be able to figure out how to get higher scores, when there are only 44 ppl on the leaderboard who have this achiev. online.

I tried that, couldn't get it yet. Going to need a lot of practice I guess. Medium on GH games is hella more than medium on RB games for the most part as far as drums go anyway. I think I got 95% first sightread through though, so still probably do-able.

I consider it about as tough as Assassin on medium, but there's a little bit more of a margin of error for Dyer's Eve. As long as you don't screw up the star power path and make mistakes during the mega point sections you'll have a better chance

And you were using the Rock Band drums, right?

Well, I think I shouldn't have too much trouble with this one then, the vocals one on the other hand, I'll not be able to do that in a million years. :(

If activating star power wasn't so goddamn awkward with the Rock Band drums I could actually get this achievement done.

Tested this today (using Auto-kick just to make sure) and the best path is by far waiting for the red-yellow notes to deploy star power. Here is pretty much the bare minimum notes you have to hit if you want this achievement.

My score on medium: 450,275

Missed 3 notes.

Two were during the "dear mother dear mother" parts, because I was trying to deploy star power. It's akward. The 3rd missed note was some random note in the middle.

So if anything I'd say practice deploying star power during those parts.

Got this on medium myself, felt like I took the easy route though, but since then i've been able to get 450k+ on expert so that's made up for it. :D

Assassin is definitely easier though.

Managed it on medium with 475,000 and only missed 4 notes.

I think the only hard part is trying to quickly move your hand to hit the orange pad, and then quickly moving it back to hit the yellow one again.
