Song for the Week: Green Grass & High Tides

Divisions:
Drums, Medium
Guitar, Medium
Vocals, Medium

Drums, Hard
Guitar, Hard
Vocals, Hard

Drums, Expert
Guitar, Expert
Vocals, Expert

You may enter as many divisions as you wish, however, you can only win in one division per instrument. If you switch difficulties on a particular instrument mid-week, your last entry is the one that counts.

Score is what matters. The highest score in each division wins.

If you win on Medium or Hard you must move up at least one difficulty level the following week or sit the week out. If you win on Expert you must stay on Expert until you lose or sit out a week.

A screenshot of the score screen that appears after the song is completed must be posted. No other screens will be accepted as proof of score. Please have the following easily identifiable: song name, score, and instrument icon.

If you win all three instruments, No more than 1 may be Medium difficulty, in a given week (Hat Trick), you get to pick the song for the following week.

There will be no ties. First person to post a score in a division gets credit for it. Only post a score if it is higher than a score already posted.

Contest will run from Midnight (EST) Saturday to Midnight (EST) the following Saturday. The contest closes at Midnight, whether I actually post that the contest is closed or not. I will not accept any entries posted after that time.

The songs are chosen at random by computer from a list of songs that have not been played yet. I have no input into what song comes next on the list.

Special Rule for Hat Trick
In the case of multiple winning Hat Tricks posted in the same week, the following system will be used to determine the winner. Each difficulty is assigned a handicapping point value. Each Medium entry gets 1 points, each Hard entry gets 2 points, and each Expert entry gets 3 points. The person whose Hat Trick entry has the highest number of points is the winner.

Ties follow the same rules as individual entries. First one posted wins.

Special Note: Send me a PM with your song request when you think you have a Hat Trick. It prevents troubles in getting the next song up.

================================================== ===

Big thanks to soccerplaya for getting these started, and OldWIKI Tik for doing the banner graphics for both contests.

Feel free to discuss any issues you have with the contests with me.

Oh jeez. Guess I'm not participating on guitar this week. I somehow doubt my 4 star expert score would hold. -_-

But there's always the other instruments. Medium drums, anyone? ;)

What I submitted, by about 20k. Yours, over 500k I'd assume? And I need to totally concentrate to do good, if somebody's talking I'll mess up.

Umm, no, not exactly, since Cobra said I was officially an asshole on Vocals and, I believe, he was referring to my performance in the SotW contest ... namely, this thread. Odd, you didn't call out Mike for saying something very similar.

Your snarky comment, however, was off topic, IMHO.

Wow nice job. If you really want a path here it is -
2(2B) - 2(Y) - 2(NN) - 2(After 2Osus, NN) - 2(After G, 2Y) - 3(4Osus) - 2(15R) - 3(After 2Osus, NN) - 3(4G) - 2(Zig) - 2(5Y) - 2(8O)

Whoa... I've never looked up SP paths before, so I'm sorry if this is incredibly newbish, but I have no idea how to even read what you just posted. o_O

Not that I would use this to my advantage. I'm terrible at the song, but whoa.

Oh, and congrats on your Lord of the Strings Sebastian! :D

What it's saying is that you save up 2 OD sections, and use it on the second blue(i believe)after the second OD section. Then save another 2 OD sections and use it on the first yellow after those OD sections, and so on.
I think that's what it's saying. i usually don't follow paths like that. I usually use note charts, and videos to help me:p

Yeah, usually I do too but I find when its written out like that it can be much easier, probably not in a song like GGaHT though.

oh snap! your right. well i missed it there was too much chit chat on the first page that i must have just scrolled right over it. Now i feel liek a douche with only 300k however i did do that 2nd try and i finally got a xplorer that my friend let me borrow! so ill see what i can do on that score but i may be re-thinking my hat trick this week lol oh yeah and i fixed the double post so you can all suck it!

hat trick question can u do i medium and 2 hards for a hat trick

Matrarch
07-29-2008, 08:51 PM
Yup, that's fine. As it says in the rules on page 1:

If you win all three instruments, No more than 1 may be Medium difficulty, in a given week (Hat Trick), you get to pick the song for the following week.

Twisted has put alot in to making the rules pretty clear, so just give them a read and you'll usually get your answer. If something is unclear, I'm sure it would be changed as soon as possible to make sure that was remedied. Twisted's good like that.

Good luck on the hat trick! :)

I'm actually rewording some of them soon. I've had quite a few questions lately about moving up a difficulty and the Hat Trick rules. So I'll be rewriting them to be more clear as soon as I can.

I absolutely cannot stand the fact that I ALWAYS miss a percussion note in the last set of them! For that reason (the end of the long ass song) IDK if I will even bother. Drums maybe though, it is not as boring then. Tibatron, that is one hell of a nice score!
