Anyone else having a lot of trouble getting the 1 Million points achievement?

I'm having a really hard time getting this achievement. I can't get it locally, because I don't know anyone thats good at rock band, which leaves me having to go online to try and get it. I've played multiple sessions of xbox live quickplay, and the closest I've gotten is 840k on Sgt Peppers Lonley Hearts Club Band, with a full band (me on expert and the other three on medium). There seems to be a lack of expert players playing the game, and theres lot of medium/hard players who keep missing notes, don't activate overdrive, or just don't know that it's important for everyone to activate at the same time for the maximum score. Anyone else struggling with this achievement?

    That is the song I got the achievement on. I had 3 expert players and one medium player. I am having a hard time getting expert gold stars on I Feel Fine to get the achievement for the 4 songs listed to get expert gold stars and that is the last song I need to expert gold stars for that achievement. I have played expert bass on it plenty of times and got 100% notes hit and activated beatlemania twice during the song. I am having the same problems you are trying to get the like a million suns on xbox live quickplay too.

    You can't get gold stars on bass on that song.

    Krukraft is right, unfortunately. Even on guitar, it takes almost a perfectly flawless performance to get gold. Do it on vocals if you have any skill there, it's a lot easier.

    I'm just going to guess the sheer length of I want You (She's so Heavy) with a guitar/bass and maybe drums would be an easy million. I made 200k on guitar alone, no telling how much the whole band could add to that.

    I got the achievment on I Want You (She's So Heavy) with a whole expert band. It's about a minute and a half to two minutes longer than Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band/With A Little Help From My Friends

    I did the same last night, this song with 4 expert players.

    Really it isn't hard to do it is just a matter of waiting for the right time to do it. Keep playing quickplay, wait until you get 3 other expert players to play with, then you are basically guaranteed a million point song. You could basically play any song and if you all play well you'll probably get it. If you really don't want to take any chances just play I Want You (She's So Heavy) or some other long or point heavy song.

    This achievement is easy to get, you just need to play with people who *actually* know how to play (x8 multiplier, keep a streak, etc.). However it seems like everyone is having trouble getting Better Free Your Mind Instead.

    That's the song that we did it on and it was easy to achieve with a full band.

    Or wait October, 20 . Abbey Road DLC. Harmonix said that the B-side huge medley will be playable as a single song. Wow. Millions! Trillions!

    Finally did it two days ago. I went on vocals, and got an all expert band that knew when to use overdrive. Ended up with almost 1.3 mil.

    This was a very easy achievement. Expert Guitar/Bass/Drums, use overdrive properly, play I Want You (She's So Heavy) and you have 1,000,000 easy.
