The Ghost Cube is a 3x3 shape modification which is solved when two layers are rotated out of position. As a result, in order to solve the puzzles, you need to move pieces into positions where they don't necessarily line up with the other centers or nearby reference pieces, making it unclear as to when the pieces are solved.
If you're unclear what I mean by this, here is a video which should hopefully make this somewhat more clear.
As a result of this strange cut pattern, each piece is of a different shape. This puzzle is notoriously difficult to solve, and is commonly considered the hardest 3x3 mod available.
What piece(s) should I focus on solving first so that I: a) don't end up trying to solve a confusing face, and b) can easily identify the pieces I need?
What shapes should I look for so that I can identify the pieces I need quickly and easily?
