You'll need to have mastered basic alt-strumming to beat this song. If you have done this, then this song is a cakewalk, except for the solo. Don't let the easy beginning fool you, the guitar solo is fairly difficult. This song is much harder to to fC due to chord changes, rapid strumming, the solo, and also very close together trills. This is definitely the hardest part of the song, so watch out.
On bass, this song is pretty easy. Just be able to put your fingers on the right buttons. There will be a lot of single notes in a row in this song. The hardest parts are before the choruses when there is a quick blue-yellow-red-green hammer on combination before a ton of orange notes in a row. This four-note combo can screw you up and give you at most a -1 run. You can also fuck up (and ruin your Rock Meter) if you succeeded in playing the hammer on combo and then put your finger on the wrong color note.
On drums, this song is not that hard to FC, if you know the song, the beat and the rhythm.
It is a pretty basic 4/4 drum beat, with few fills (except before the chorus) and a basic beat.
One thing that throws off many people and prevents an FC is how the drum beat pauses right on the part when the song goes 'It just takes some time...'.
Also, after that section, the beat changes slightly to suit the chorus.
However, once you get used to these, it shouldn't be all that hard to FC.
Make sure you exercise your wrist before playing this song and have plenty of endurance.
This song is pretty simple to sing. The notes are easy to hit in the verses, but the chorus is just a little harder. Like any other song, either try humming the song or play on a lower level.
