Set up your Arcade mode options as follows to make it a little easier:
* 10 lives
* Extend every 1,000,000
* Difficulty on Very Easy
Thank you Cpt Obvious!

* Picking the stage 2-x route seemed easier than 4-x.

* Ikaruga scoring mode = allows you to chain different colors.
For example, destroy 3 red ennemies then 3 yellow ones and the chain will still keep going... but will max out at 25,600 pts rather than 100,000.
This will help you survive because you'll have less ennemies to dodge, and you'll get longer chains without learning the levels by heart.
Thanks deexor for this advice!
PLEASE NOTE That Ikaruga mode is available only if you have one or more achievement for Ikaruga on your gamertag (sorry for not pointing this out earlier)

If you want to have a chance, you'll still need to do some learning though.
Learn the 5 first levels (3-x): how to survive, chain, and 100% destroy the bosses. In Ikaruga mode it's relatively easy to get a good score.
You don't have to be able to perfect them every time, but the better you get on those the easier the rest will be! Remember: good score = good weapons = easier bosses!

For stages 2-x and 5 I didn't get any particular training other than my Story mode run... Just try to survive and keep a few lives for the end.

Now for stage 6: Xiga
Seriously, you'll have to get some training on this.
If you die here, try to note what level your weapons are when you get there and reproduce it in training mode. Learning the patterns is key!
One attack, however, is totally random: the part where Xiga is rolling in the air and shooting green lasers all over the place. And that's why you really need to have a few lives in stock.

Also, learn the patterns of the last stage (1). They are easy and you just don't want to be surprised and die there after you finally beat Xiga without using continues!

I'm not particularly good at this, and on my first 1CC run at the beginning of stage 6 I had:
5 lives = got 5 extends... lost 10 lives on my way, 4 of them on stage 5.
Levels V19 H16 S20 = using H+S during all the battle except for the last attack (falling diamonds) where I used V. With this, I barely saw any of the alternate patterns Xiga can use. I still had to dodge quite a few green lasers of death though.

So there's plenty of room for improvement (obviously), and yet plenty of room for more errors!
And when in doubt, remember your "Be attitude for gains"..
