    A few points of advice:

    - You really don't need to elbow strum the first note of the intro. Some people prefer it, but you have more than enough time to strum with your right hand, tap the first red and yellow notes with your left, and start tapping with your right on the first blue. Just keep practicing on Slow. You'll get it!

    - If you're struggling to pass the solo, here's a star path that might help you. Ignite your star power right at the beginning of Herman's Solo, and it should end right before the next star phrase. This one and the next star phrase are pretty easy to nail (relative to the rest of the solo), so practice hitting those two sections. There's also a third SP phrase later on in the solo, if you can make it to that point. Then, wait till you're in the flashing red to use your SP, which will hopefully last you long enough to get to the GYO chord.

    - After you pass the solo, you're not exactly home free; there's still the infamous "Red Snake" in So Far Away III. If you're in the red at this point, you might have trouble getting past it. But the best thing to do when you reach the Red Snake is just hold down the red fret and strum. You'll nail most of the red notes and should come out about even on the rock meter.

    - If you can get past this point, you're probably okay to beat the song. Just watch out for the "You Rock" section right before the end. If you can nail the two SP phrases after the Red Snake, you might want to save it for this section.

    In the end, it all comes down to practice, practice, practice. I spent many a frustrated hour failing at about 83%. Now, many months later, I can pass it pretty consistently. Just don't get too upset if you keep failing. Play onward! Your hard work will eventually pay off.

    TA SamAlthough I do not recommend this because it will hurt your hand, but I passed the intro one-handed. I use three fingers to do it one-handed. I don't use my pinky which some people like to do to hit the orange. Definitely not easy to do but a better alternative for me because I'm bad at tapping. Most of the rest of the song I can pass. I beat it on my second try with about 440K score

    To play the beginning, try holding down the green with your right hand, place your other hand on the four buttons (red, yellow, blue, and orange), and then strum with your right elbow. You can now play it normally if you don't mess up in the beginning and remember to hold the green down. I find this way to be much easier to get through the beginning. Unless your lefty, I think this method may be easier. The beginning is also much slower than it appears, I use to wonder why I was missing, then I realized I was going faster than the notes, how ironic. I can get 506k 90% but that took me a very long time. Just keep practcing and you should be able to get it. Start practice on slow and work your way until you can hammer-on the entire beginning because one mistake there can fail you if you can't restart fast enough. Also, practice the solo, this for me was by far the hardest part. If you get really frustrated with the beginning, use a rubber band, and this actually helps to practice the other fingers, if you don't want to do the cheating way later on. If you can't beat it with a rubber band, you probably can't beat the rest of the song. Anyway, good luck, hope it helps.

    Start by turning on hyperspeed 1 or 2 it may seem fast at first but as soon as you get used to it you will get much better.

    Fingertapping not only does it help you get passed the intro but it makes you feel like a baddass when you can first do it. =D

    Intro-go onto practice mode put it on slowest, place your left 3 fingers on the first three frets (unless your on lefty mode then its right 3 fingers on the first 3 frets) i use my middle finger from my right (strumming hand) to tap the blues and the oranges but thats totally up to you on what finger you choose. (remember to keep your green button held down at all times)now play the *They're hammer ons* section on slowest by fingertapping this technique until you 100% it now change your speed to slower until you 100% it then slow and normal speed.
    (Trust me you'll have this in no time) When you're done with this section move on to synth death

    Synth Death- make sure you can do this to not fail out, again if you struggle with this do the practice mode on slowest, slower, slow until you do proficient (with practice this is one of the funnest parts)

    Solo fill 1-try to grab that star power for later

    Herman's Solo- make sure you get the star power in the center of this solo for later, practice the end of herman's solo the part with the yellows and blues with occasional red, place pointer finger on yellow and middle on blue. just tap your middle finger and when it gets to the red release your middle finger and roll your pointer finger onto its side landing on the red then back to the yellows and blues (this little bit can raise your meter quite a bit).

    Sams solo- practice practice practice this solo. although it may not be long it can and will fail you if you slip. this is not where you need your star power so dont use it. or good luck if you do

    Herman's solo 2- get that starpower

    What the ...!?- make it through a little bit before using your star power (a full bar is a for sure win) should last you through the twin solo

    Twin solo- The triple pull offs on the yellow through orange place your finger on the yellow and strum while trying to tap the blue (just leave out the orange) use this same technique on the triple pulloffs just before the green yellow and orange chord except halfway through you must shift your fingers to the blue and tap the orange (because they take away your yellow)

    Here We Stand (the red dragon)- just strum the reds

    Rampaging Dragons- Get your meter in the green or get the star powers you need them for the hammerons at "You Rock!!!"

    Almost There...- if you missed those star powers make sure your meter is in the green here

    You rock- Practice this on normal speed just strum the reds and tap the blues to keep your meter up (the practice is just to make sure you know whats comming)
