Overdrive for 60 seconds

So the achievement guide says this ca be done easily on any difficulty. I play on medium, trying to get the hang of hard slowly but surely. I've been playing this game for about a month now and haven't got the achievemnt, let alone getting close to deploying overdrive for anything like a minute. I've tried some different techniques like filling the bar to full then releasing before more silver notes pop up but I'm starting to think this is something you can only get on expert.

Or doing it with more than just 1 person. Get's easier the more people you have.

Most helpful tip for this aside from having more than one person, is that the slower the tempo of the song, the longer OD lasts.

The best way to do it if you have to do it solo (and have the original RB tracks) is to do it on Faith No More - "Epic" on medium. Fill the bar all the way up and deploy it at around 68% into the solo. Make sure you refill your overdrive on the notes that come immediately after, whammy the sustained notes, and wahlah - achievement unlocked.

Find a slow song that you like, if you can get another person, great. I managed this on Green grass and high tides. I'm pretty sure you can get a good 45-50 seconds on your own.

tip - get the meter filled fast for every player... Have the drummer start the OD as soon as he can...even if guitar and bass aren't there yet. IF possible, have the bassist go next since he usually has less notes. then vocals and lastly the guitar.

WHEN any string insturmentis in OD and long notes that give OD power come up hit the notes and go to town onthe whammy. Your OD meter will note fall. Some songs will have a good 10 second sustain that you can just whammy to death.

By timethe guitar is down, either vocal or drums should be refilled. Do the drums if possibe, then vocal, bass, tehn guitar.... repeat.

I think we nailed the 120 seconds on Camera eye or tom sawyer....I know TS has alot of sustains.

May be possib;e on MASTER/SLAVER by pearl jams since 90% of the song is slow HOPOS that arte sustained... can just whammy and not worry about strumming much,

I got the achievement on Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt. 1. If your going to do it on that song, you'll need a drummer and bassist and they're performance including yours must be amazing. When you think the time is right active Star Power and don't miss any notes.

You are over thinking it. You only have to maintain overdrive for 60 seconds.

Pick a slow song, put it on Easy difficulty, maintain overdrive for 60 seconds any way you can. Any note that isn't an OD note doesn't matter. Difficulty doesn't matter. Number of players doesn't matter except that more than one makes this achievement much easier.
