Easy way for Fight Fire With Fire? Maybe hard FC?

This is the only song in GH:Metallica that I've played on bass, and I managed to get 340k in a few tries. On my first run, I only got 170k or so, but over the next few tries I got the strumming pattern down and got the 340k no problem. I missed a TON of notes and didn't even use my SP very well.

That's good to hear Armor. I just got 170k on my first try last night, but I think I can slow down the main riff in practice mode and get the hang of it.

wow, starz. That exact same thing happened to me today. 170k and everything(but on expert)

There is plenty of room for error in this song as I always messed up that weird pattern of notes after the main riff. Just use your starpower if you can on the three note chords. In the end I got 342k, just enough to get the achievement =)

See guys? Just takes a little getting used to the strumming, and then it's cake

The real problem i have with this song is the part right after the Op Op OpOpYellow etc. I just can't accurately play that at 100% speed.

The strumming is retarded. I went into practice mode where they single out the bass, and I can hear the rhythm and get 100% every time on the speed right below full speed. Then when I put it on full speed, all the instruments screw it all up, and the vocals are off from the bass, and I strum with the vocals.

This is so STUPID!

Try turning all settings but Bass down. You'll be able to hear it easier... I think.

For one, changing the audio mix, at least on my tv, sucks. I can turn any instrument up and the rest down, but I still hear the band in its entirety. Oh well.

As for the achievement, it's definitely doable with little practice. I got 280k my first run, then 300k, then 354k. Use starpower during the main riffs and on the triple chords that appear seldomly. It's ok to butcher the weird parts after the main riff. I know I did. Hope this helps.

This is good to hear. I hadn't gotten down to the nitty gritty on the song yet, but at least there's hope.

In the main riff, are you all strumming even the hammer-ons (making them triplets) or just in doubles?

Don't worry about it Brown, i dont have the achievement either. Which is weird because i'm only 12k off the Creeping Death achievement, which is way harder. :confused:

YES!!!!!! 360,797!

I saved all star power, like everyone else, for the triple note chords (make sure you have a 4x multiplier when you get to them) But I also used it right at the beginning after you fill it up with the long chord in the intro. After that use all star power for the chords, nail the "da, dada, dada, da, dada, dada" (for the most part) and you are golden. I went from 315k one try to 360k in next try because I did good in the middle and nailed the chords with 8x.

i hate playing this song...its the vocals that throw me off completely. i tried listening to the strumming in the video and can get that down but once the vocals start im effed. i even turned them down completely but that hardly made a difference

343K yay! Just got this last nite after like 20 over tries and a sore arm and wrist.

Basically had to get all SPs but I always screw up on the section after the main riff which I still cant figure how to do it correctly.

I'm officially not gonna play this on bass again for the fear that my strumbar will break lol.

I may be S.O.L. on this achievement and Creeping Death for a little while. My Les Paul guitar died on me the other night, and all I'm left with is a World Tour guitar that drops strums every so often. I think my high score with the WT guitar was between 240k and 250k. I get around 94%, but the strum bar won't let me hold a 4x multiplier for too long.

At least it had the decency to let me get Battery before it crapped out.

I got this yesterday. :)

It's not as bad as it first seems, once you have the rhythm down, it's easy. You don't even pay attention to the fact that Barney burst all over the fretboard and made a mess of it...

Haha. If I had a decent guitar on hand, I'd probably be agreeing with you right now.

As it stands though, its hard to get an achievement like this with bum peripherals.

Well, I fixed my guitar, but I still can't get this damn song. My highest is 320k. I just can't get a fucking combo at the beginning of the main verse. I've learned how it fits with the vocals, but the first part is really pissing me off.

Damn my guitar doesnt even have a whammy bar. I messed up like hell and managed 352,000. My advice is to learn the chorus and ur set.

This achievement was the one I thought I would end up getting last of the four high score ones, turned out it was the first one I got, really not as bad as it first seemed. My advice is get the rhythm down in slowest on practice and work your way up. Worked for me. Now I play the song for fun on bass :) now Creeping Death is another story... making stupid mistakes is the story of my life with that song...

I just got mine, with 340,069. I couldn't believe it. It's funny, I almost restarted the song when I missed a very important star power, but I was just too mad to start over.

970/1000 - Next stop: Creeping Death. Crap.

I finally got this achievement with 346k. Now Dyers Eve (dont have a drum set) and Stone Cold Crazy(Friend has mic). Creeping Death was easy.
