The NES Orchestra cheevos were insanely difficult for me as well. I guess I have no rhythm! Patience, young grasshoppers.

Jus' sayin': NES Orchestra doesn't care about your rhythm; it's all about playing the right notes.

You must be using a different ROM. Make sure it has the exact same name as what I posted above.

I'm touched by the community's dedication to finding out how to unlock the NES Orchestra achievements. I've added guide videos to both of them so everyone can join the fun.

I was extremely disappointed that you would share the answer until I saw the videos and now I want you to marry me

Do we have to use an NES controller or can we just use a regular keyboard to unlock them?
