I was having trouble beating this on Hard simply because of the Battle with Lou. So I found a way to beat him in just a few seconds! I can't believe this actually worked.

This requires two Xbox Live profiles, so make an additional profile if you don't have one at the ready (I used another Gold membership). Sign into this alternate profile in Guitar Hero III. In the Cheats Menu, enter these codes: (GR) (GY) (YB) (RB) (BO) (YO) (RY) (RB) and then (GR) (B) (GR) (GY) (B) (GY) (RY) (O) (RY) (GY) (Y) (GY) (GR). Those codes are for No Failure and Easy Expert.
(I'm not sure if the Easy Expert matters in hard but I did it anyway)

Head to Quick Play mode and play "Slow Ride" briefly. After the first handful of notes, you'll see a long orange note. At this, press Start and go to the main menu. Sign out of your alternate profile and sign into your primary profile. Head to career mode and go to the boss you want to beat. The boss will glitch out and miss notes, failing the match almost instantly.

**This was an unconfirmed cheat listed on IGN and I just confirmed it for myself. This will probably work on any difficulty and you may only need the No Failure cheat.

Good Luck!
