The speed of the notes is rediculous! Plus whats up with using the triggers en bumpers, youd almost have to be godlike to get every note right!
Anyone have any tips, maybe there are songs that are easier then others?

I haven't done it yet, but when I do I can guarantee it'll be with the guitar instrument. With it, the left side are longer notes while the right buttons are for short taps, means you don't have to focus quite so much because you have a lot more breathing room with your left hand.

I find the song "White River" to be a relatively simple one, I've done pretty well at it with only a couple of tries. Maybe try and source it and give it a few goes, I bought it from a vendor, can't remember which one though.

I actually got this achievement on the first try, i don't remember the name of the song, but you should use the drum and it is very easy.

I will try to let you know which song i used to get is.

Thanks, i'll try the drums next time. I've only got the gitar and harp.
The harp is absolute murder to nail, gitar less so but after trying the mini-games a lot i think i'm having more trouble using the triggers and bumpers for a quick-time event, it just feels unnatural to me...

There is a necromancer side quest where u will have to play thru all of the instruments to open various doors for that quest. From what i see the flow of notes depends on the song and the instrument with which u can play on. The song that has some thursday on its name can be played with all the instruments and its meant to be played in Co-op with each person handling a different instrument. If u try to play this song solo, the game pours the notes for all instruments combined together. I may be wrong but this is my guess or assumption.

But if its the achievement for 100% notes hit is what u r looking for then u will definitely get it on the mission i said above. This mission is got from the bullet in quest board in New Ashos.

I think the first time you're able to buy one is in the town next to Hatmandor (cant remember the name)

Yes but the shops are random by day. So if you don't find the drum there and- you're like me, I wanted to get it out of the way early- I just kept going out to farm kills and fast traveling between the top island and the town and checking what he had. Shops are closed at night and he sells drums quite often so keep checking.

I can also agree that the drums were pretty easy. Thanks for the heads up. I tried the guitar and I hit like 2 notes.

That's the town I got the violin and guitar.
