  • The start is fairly simple. Just make sure you don’t get your fingers tangled up in the bits with the arc notes.
  • At the part where the music becomes more fast paced with the violins, make sure you tap the notes according to the violin sounds. This makes it easier to have more PURE notes than FAR notes.
  • At the drop, make sure you follow the arc notes carefully and don’t release your fingers even if you feel they will get tangled.
  • There will be a part where the drumbeats go crazy and a long string of sky notes appear. Here, you should use two fingers to tap these, alternating in an LRLR pattern and then vice-versa for the other one.
  • For the quadruple hold notes, the Long notes appear before the Arc notes. It is easier to use thumbs for the Long notes and index fingers for the Arc notes.
    • Since Long notes can be released for a short moment without penalty, index fingers holding the notes can be quickly swapped with thumbs if necessary.
