Rock Band 2 Achievements

The Bachman-Turner Award

Maintain deployed Overdrive for 90 seconds

This has been confirmed that it can be done with a band as long as one of you has overdrive at one point. Just make sure that when one of you is about to run out of overdrive, the other one deploys it. Unison bonuses are your friend. Also remember that you can hit overdrive phases while you still have overdrive deployed and keep it longer. If you have an overdrive phase with a long note, whammy if for more. Here's a video of it being done, thanks to Inhale3xhale for the vid.

We did this on Today, both playing on Medium.

Is there a way to do this alone?

It's possible if you download "Sorry" by Guns 'N Roses.

It's difficult to do it alone, but it is possible. Best way is to get 3-4 people and all fill up your overdrive meter. one uses theirs and before they run out, the next person starts theirs up. on and on. It isn't difficult if everyone is willing to cooperate.

I got this last night with a friend. He was doing vocals and bass and I was
playing guitar. All 3 "instruments" were on medium and the song we used was
"Today" by the Smashing Pumpkins. It is pretty easy actually.

One thing to note though is that the achievement will NOT pop until the song
is over.

Haha, I'll try to do it solo on "Sorry" and see if I can get it done. I'm assuming it's best to do it on guitar?

Got this one already, but I want to see if I can do this one on solo, it would be funny if I can.

Today is my favourite song I'll have to try this and maybe find a 3rd person on-line (Yeah I can sing and guitar at the same time both on expert and get high 90s :) )
