I would consider this one of the easiest Music games to fully complete.  Nothing is that challenging in it.  It is still a  fun game, but not for someone looking for challenge. The reason it isn't that challenging is because it is more for the whole family and you can tell Activision/Neversoft are trying to get new people involved in the game.
