2 Trophies that are absolutely driving me crazy

- 85% on all solos. I only have Taxman left, and I've gotten somewhere around 82% on it multiple times.

- 100% on While My Guitar Gently Weeps solo. I cannot even count how many times I've gotten 99%. If the Gretsch guitar wasn't so cool, I swear I would have broken it by now.

The Gold Star/HOPO trophies bother me just out of the fact that I can't ever imagine being good enough to get them, I always mess up in a song at some point. But those first 2..........I'm aggravated.

    Put the game on Superspeed, and try for those two trophies again. You can thank me later.

    Taxman took me a long time to get too. Just try only a few times a day and if you dont get just stop and try again in a few days. That is what I did.

    The Taxman solo took me a millennium and a half to finally get 85% on. And I got exactly 85%.
    And like deadpool said, Superspeed is your friend.
    The While My Guitar Gently Weeps solos are cake compared to the Taxman solo. At least, that's my opinion.

    What is superspeed? I've heard so much about it, but I still don't know what it is. n00b.

    drum trophies are the hardest imo, together with singing and hopo

    ROFL 'cuz THAT'S what I did!!!!

    And... not an FC - you can clearly hear him strumming on the hammers.

    And... I find superspeed on expert to be CRAZY - do you really do that? When playing Med/Hard, it's a great way to get used to the speed on expert but.... really?

    Since when did strumming count against a FC? At no point do you drop below 100% or lose your combo.

    It doesnt. I have no clue where he got that.

    Some achievements you are not allowed to strum the hammer-ons, like the Octopus's Garden.

    I managed to get While My Guitar Gently Weeps the first run on the second solo. But yea, Taxman is a piece of crap to get. But it takes practice.

    My mistake. Apparently, you can strum hopo's or overstrum and still get an FC. I think that an FC should be no overstrums or strumming hopo's. Is there a term for that? I've gotten 100% on a song and knowing that I overstrummed, I don't really consider that an FC.
    Full Combo should mean Full Combo (i.e. hopo's and no overstrums) and not "hey, I hit all the notes and didn't lose my multiplier - yay!"

    Just sayin'

    You cant overstrum.

    Struming a HO/PO doesnt break your combo, therefore its still a FC (full combo)

    Overstrumming breaks your combo, therefore its not a FC.

    To activate Superspeed; select "options" in the main menu. Then, select "game options" and click on "superspeed". Ta-dah.
    It takes a while to get used to, especially when playing on Expert. My first thought was "OH SHI-" cos the notes flew by so fast, haha. But honestly, it really helps you get a better idea of wtf you're doing.
