I just wanted to share how I got marching band master all in a matter of an hour or so from start to finish. First I just want to let everyone know that this will only apply to a small number of people (I think?)...

First, you need to be decent at Rock Band drums.

Second, you need to own the portable drum kit for Rock Band. These are the thin pads that connect to the controller piece, which then connects to the xbox. Not owning these is what I personally think will leave a lot of you out there hanging.

Basically the strategy is this: Hook up the portable drum kit as your controller, and start up the Stillwater halftime show. You will be following the strategy as laid out in the Marching Band Master strategy, as this really is the easiest song. However, note that the difference here is that you can lay out the pads in any order you want. Hence to make it easier, lay them out (from left to right) Yellow, Blue, Red, Green.

Last step (and this is where I think I was most creative) is to lay your television on its side, so that the "notes" scroll from top to bottom. Proceed to play the songs just as you would on Rock Band, without missing any, and this elusive achievement is yours. I realize most of you play on a flatscreen LCD or something similar, (personally mine is a 50" plasma which I had no desire to lay on its side) and therefore my solution was to go grab the cheap standard tube tv from my basement and use that.

Again, I realize this will probably not apply to you all, as I can't imagine many of you have the portable pads for RB, but for those that do it will make this achievement IMMENSELY easier...

Post a response if this helps!! If it can be improved, leave a comment and I will do my best to update it before giving a negative vote. Cheers!!
