Might seem difficult at first, but this is really easy as some of the songs (all enV songs, Scum of the Earth, and a few of the songs that are at the top of the list) are pretty easy, once you get good enough to play songs on Master. The easiest would probably the first enV song that shows up on the list, Destination.

One of the main differences that Master and Expert difficulty modes have, is that you must obtain the powerup from an enemy or your combo will reset.

Some general tips:

On Master difficulty, enemies lose the white glow that signifies when they're next. In order to combat this, keep track of the button icons on the floor and which order they appear, as that will give you the order in which you're supposed to press the buttons.

Save your powerups for when you need them. You will lose your combo if you get hit while shield is active, so shield isn't all that great for trying to get a high score. And the other powerup doesn't give you anything for how many guys it destroys, only use it when you lose track of the next guy or there's a large group incoming and you can't keep up so you don't lose your combo.

If you spot a red guy, there will always be at least one more of them. Make sure you spot all of them so you know which buttons to press. The red guys never have an open spot between them, as they are always right next to another red guy.

Use the D-Pad when hitting the red guys. Sometimes you'll press the wrong buttons along with the right buttons when only using the buttons, so using the D-Pad will help with that. I use cn_downleft along with cn_B and cn_Y.

If you do want to go for score, use the D-Pad to hit the powerups. That way, you can use the buttons for the first hit, D-Pad for the second, and have extra time to get your fingers ready again for the next guy.
