Use palm muting and/or left hand muting. Also, you are probably moving your fingers too much. Your fingers should go flying off the fretboard as soon as you're done playing a note. Don't think of...

Work on the same stuff you always work on. It's good to practice clean or unplugged every once in a while. An amp can give you a lot more volume, but that can also cover up some things, especially...

I had this problem for a while. I just learned to compensate by adding a slight bend to the other string to get it back in tune.

Many people on this forum use their left knee, myself included. Using your right knee can cause issues with your right shoulder and arm. I know from experience.

Don't quit playing just because you are having a bit of trouble. As Zaph said, 30 days is nothing. I've been playing for 15+ years and I'm still terrible.
