Go to speeed 1.5 or 1.75. I found those the best.

Arrows going down or up, whatevers more comfy ( I have mine go down )

I learned 1 handed, but then went 2 handed when I realized basically all the Master rated songs are impossible 1 handed.

I've been playing 5 days =p so I'm still a noob I guess. But it seems to me I really only lose to those Guru's out there, and a select few who are JUST a little better then me ^_^

you've only been playing 5 days and you think your pretty good? thats kinda funny cause you arnt at least not yet. ive seen some of your playbacks and there quite easy songs. so i wouldnt brag

but if you really want to get better find what speed your comfortable at and if you dont do so good on a song you practice it till you can AAA it

All I did was play Alpha HElix ALOT...
Now I can FC it sometimes.
And yes , the songs DO have beats and the keys ( most of the time ) go along with it.
Listen to the song , and flow the keys with it...yeah...

i think "straight to video" is a good way to start training.. stepfile is mixed with interesting doublesteps and good rythm. And if you get a fc you'll earn a lot of cresits in that song

Just practice and i find that two handed is way harder for me anyways. I can AAA some songs and have a couple of hard skill tokens. Using speed mods does help a lot though so try those.

get in the beat and see what the bpm is, and if it helps, tap a little harder so it can get you in rythm. Helps some, but fails others =/

OK first of all, try chaning your speed to 1.5x, under settings. If you've played enough games, making this change will literally make your mouth drop. TRUST ME!!!
After you do that, work on the easy songs. If you're still hitting goods, then you're not ready to AAA yet. Right now I'm able to hit 9/10 perfects in any song that's Standard or lower. The way I managed was by trying to AAA all the easy songs. It somehow trained my eye to get a better accuracy.
So, change speeds, see how it goes. When I changed to 1.5x I got absurdly better, but I only started to AAA songs for real when I changed to 1.75x.

Also, for people who are JUST STARTING FFR, a few songs that I think are very helpful are:

-Straight To Video, under Rock. The beginning might be hard, but just mash through it. It's great song for getting used to hitting 2 arrows at once.
-8-Bit Dreamer, under Misc. I put my sister on this one and she quickly got extremely used to FFR. o.o It's good for getting used to FFR patterns.
-One Last Battle, under Arcade. You might think it's hard but if you try it enough times, you'll get used to doing staircases and that's a HUGE skill improvement.

Also, if you're not getting at least 20 misses in a song, YOU'RE NOT GETTING BETTER! So don't worry if you think you suck at passing a song. It's supposed to be like that. :3 Just practice and eventually you'll get used to the game.

Yeah. Just a little while ago I turned up the speed to 1.25x and got 9-0-0-0 on Z (Dance2) for 2 of my 4 tier points. So yeah, speedmods really help.

You want at least speed 1.5. Also, if you're starting out, go for skill tokens that are in your reach. If you're very experienced, go for tier points.
