Probably best to do 38 of the beats on 180 BPM. Have a friend come over and do the bass pedal for you while you concentrate on the pads if you can't seem to get it. You'll also unlock the "Beat It" achievement along with this one if you have not already done so. Achievement will unlock after the last beat is finished.

This is not an easy achievement to get. I am a middle of the road Expert drummer and I have gotten extremely frustrated over this achievement. The best advice I can give is to go for the half on 180 beats per minute. In order to get through the tougher ones, I would practice at a slower speed (140) until I could get it no problem and then play it through five or six times at 200 bpm, so that it would seem slower when I got to 180. Depending on your drumming style and skill different patterns will be easier for you so I won't recommend specific ones. Although I got this achievement solo, getting a friend to do the pedal while you do the hands will make this achievement much easier (although admittedly it takes some of the fun out of it).

The best idea is to just do half on 180 (or 200)bpm. Play through all of them and you should probably have at least 30 done. Now, go back and play all the ones you were close to getting and try again. Personally, I got stuck at 36 for a little while, but a couple of tries and I got it.

It's a tip, but if you can't do it (and don't want/have help from others playing the pedal), you can try to change the drums' sound. I was stuck, and when I changed the sound, after 3 more tries I finally beat it.

Sometimes, turn off or on the metronome works too.
