Play a Real Guitar Already!

Play "The Hardest Button to Button" on Pro Guitar.   

This is pretty straightforward. Just load up the song in quickplay and pass it. You can turn on No Fail if you are struggling.

I'm just wondering what's their reasoning on choosing this song for the achievement.

It's probably a pretty easy song (I haven't bought the guitar - 150 is a bit much for me :O). I can play it on real guitar and its pretty much the only song I can play besides like Mary Had a Little Lamb. It's most likely just an introduction to the game's new peripherals :P

i think its because of the irony of the song title. you are playing "real guitar" on a song called "the hardest button to button," which "should" be played by a "guitar with buttons." sorry, that sounded really stupid looking back on it, but i hope you get the idea.

I believe it's the easiest song on Pro Guitar (going by the list of goals).
That, and the title is referencing everyone who criticizes people who play these games instead of playing an actual guitar. (at least how I see it)

I think you hit the nail exactly on the head with that one.

Wasn't Jack White one of the musicians who were so against people playing plastic guitars? Perhaps the name of the achievement is a quote or a paraphrase of something he said?

Anyhow, I just got my PRO guitar today and this did not unlock on easy with no-fail mode on. FYI.

For any newcomers to this section. You have to score at least 3 stars for the achievement to unlock. Mine didn't unlock at first either (I suck on the Pro Guitar, but not a real guitar), I only scored 2 stars. Then played it again, got 3 stars and it popped after the song was over.
