Chosen One 20
Beat Fury of the Storm as a solo Drummer on Hard or higher difficulty (QP+)

This achievement can be very hard for people who haven't played Hard or Expert drums at all, but I will try to help out here as much as possible. One of the main things to remember is that the main notes on drums are red (green if you are left handed) and bass drum. Also you are able to use Powers to help you pass the song, a good one to use is Resurrection as this gives you chances to stop yourself failing out. For your other Power choose something that you feel will give you the best chance.

The drum beats in this song don't seem to be anything to technical (and there is only 6 different beats to learn), the main problem is that it is fast and long. So here are a few tips that should help you pass it. These are all taken from Hard difficulty.

1st Beat:

The simple way to pass this beat is just to ignore that the orange notes are there and just use both hands to do a drum roll on the red. This should very easily put you into the green.
This beat only pops up 2 or 3 times.

2nd Beat:

This beat goes around the pattern that on every 2 yellows there will be a red and on every 4 yellows there will be a bass drum. The simplest way to play this beat is to not try and hit every yellow. so you will want to be hitting the yellows on their own (or with bass drum) and the reds on their own. Basically you should be doing a drum roll of the same speed as the first beat. Here is a quick drawing of the sort of thing you will want to be playing:


3rd Beat:

This beat is exactly the same as the 2nd beat but just needs to be played on the orange instead. Here is what you should be playing:



4th Beat:

This beat is very similar to the 2nd beat and goes around the pattern that on every 2nd yellow there will be a red and on every other 2nd yellow there will be a bass drum. The simplest way to play this beat is to not try and hit every yellow. so you will want to be hitting the yellows with bass drum and the reds on their own. Basically you should be doing a drum roll of the same speed as the first beat. Here is a quick drawing of the sort of thing you will want to be playing:


5th Beat:

This beat is exactly the same as the 4th beat but just needs to be played on the orange instead. Here is what you should be playing:


6th Beat:

This beat tends to be the kind of thing that most other songs drums are like, just a bit faster. The main bit of advice I can give here is to miss every other yellow so you aren't playing to fast. You should be hitting the yellow at the same time as the red. Here is an example picture of the sort of thing you should be playing:


Drum Fill:

This seems to be the only type of drum fill in this song. They are just fast rolls around the red, blue and green pads. The simpilest thing to do for these sections is to just play at half the speed. Here is an example picture of what to play on the left, with what the original part looked like on the right:
