Many of these challenges are fairly easy, even for a beginner but you'll find that some of them can prove quite difficult not because of your skill but because the game has some trouble correctly registering some of the notes.

It may be the game's fault, or my guitar or whatever, but here are a few tips on how to overcome some of these flaws.

For Palm Mutes and Harmonics, sometimes, even though you hit the not correctly and hear that you have done so, it won't register.

A great workaround is that you can activate custom tones in challenge mode!

To do so, go into amp mode and configure a tone. Just create a tone with the first distortion pedal, I didn't try the other ones, but found that this one worked really good. I also put all of the pedal's values (distortion and tone) to 100. When you save you'll see it is assigned to a button, mine was X.

Now go back into the challenge, and when it starts, press the X button (or whatever button you have that tone mapped to) and it will change the challenge's tone for your custom tone.

The rest is up to you and practice, but for palm mutes and harmonics, I tried upwards of 10 times to no avail before trying this. Once I loaded the custom distortion tone, it took me 2 tries each.

The other challenge you will likely have trouble with is the Bends one. As much as I bend a note, it rarely registers when you have to go up or down a full step, even though I can see I bended the string enough or even more than enough.

The trick here is to do an hammer-on 1 or 2 frets higher. 1 for half step, 2 for full step. If you don't know whether it'll be a half or full, hammer-on one fret, then the second one if needed.

Since the game only analyses the sound you produce, it doesn't notice you didn't actually bend.

I didn't have any trouble with the other challenges, but if they have proven to be tricky for some of you, do tell what your tricks were so others can know about it too!
