Best song and instrument to play sustained notes in Fortnite Festival Main Stage

To quickly score points by playing sustains in Fortnite, we recommend picking up the Bass Guitar as your primary instrument. It doesn't matter if you do this solo or with friends, as long as you're the one playing this instrument. Next, make sure that the song Creatures in Heaven by Glass Animals is part of the playlist.

Then, play this on Expert difficulty. Don't worry, even at the highest difficulty, this song will ask you to hold down notes which will give you a lot more points than what you'd earn at a lower difficulty.

To make a things bit more easier, we recommend that you use your own key binds (such as arrow keys) to have a better grasp over the four notes you'll be playing. Furthermore, it also helps to have decent headsets so you can sync your listening to all the notes you will be playing.

In order to hit the notes at the exact moment as they appear, it's best to follow audio cues rather than relying only on the visual part of the gameplay. The better you're in sync with the song's melody, the simpler it will be to hit the notes.

In order to earn sustained scores, simply press and hold the notes. Another useful thing to keep in mind is using Overdrive to boost your score whenever you can. Keep doing this and you'll complete this quest in no time.

Finally, to complete related quests like this, keep adding songs to your playlist and switch up your instruments between different songs. This way, you will complete the Star Wars as well as other quests in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2.
