Song for the Week: When You Were Young

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.

Nice song choice. Voted for Perfect Drug, mostly because I don't have enough points for Closer to the Heart, but that'll probably win. Expect my scores soon.

Don't have any of those songs, nor the point to buy them.

Here we go with when you were young.

If the Perfect Drug wins I am participating next week. If not I'm holding off almost all other songs are not really good.
I just want to play Who Are You for DLC or any other Who song for that matter.

And Arctik Assasin, you don't think Closer to the Heart is good? How dare you! Just kidding, to each his own, and I agree with ya, I'd take any of the Who songs I own for playing right now, which only includes Who Are You and Baba O'Reiley, unfortunately. :( As for my score, I'm quite proud of it, FC on my first try, with squeezing and a good OD path I created.

Ya, I realized my SotW pics would eventually spam my photobucket so I made a separate album, breaking the pics... can you see it now? I could see it even when it was broken.

OldWiki Tik creates them and sends them to you, either he's a little busy and fell behind or he accidently skipped you over. I think I read he was going to be gone for a few weeks. P.S. I don't quite know why but your sig kicks ass :D

I missed his somehow, I think I made it but forgot to PM? Anyway, the other night did not work out for me so maybe I will get caught up this morning before I head to work again. Very little time. I did not vote in this poll since I will not be competing anyway, but if I did it would be Closer to the Heart for sure!

I can feel the onslaught of attacks after this post but I have never heard of that song.
Who is it by? (I'm guessing Boston since I don't listen to them)

08-10-2008, 05:28 PM
It's by Rush. I hadn't heard of it either before downloading it, but it's a great song in my opinion. :)

And Hoodmod- 135,000? o_O I did a couple of runs this morning, both 100%, both 125k. I know I'm not getting that last OD (Damn whammying),but eventhen I don't think I'd get 135k. Nice job. :)

Looks like you already found me... Unfortunately I'm on a trip until Friday, so I gotta put a hold on that SD (if you mean score duel of course). And yes, I have around 40 or so DLC, including the whole Boston pack :D. I hope my score holds until then, but then again, it probably will, it's only 800 points off of first place.

This is a tough one to FC. I'm *this* close ... my one Strong knocked me out, I think. Oh well, here's a starting point for Expert Vocals.

I will try later on this week. Son is having a few friends over tonight so I'll have to either play full band or abandon the living room altogether.

Actually, it takes a good OD path + Skill + an uber competitive nature to get Mike's scores.

:woop:

Mike255
08-13-2008, 01:40 AM
Nah, theres squeezing in drums. I hate whoever figured out how to do it cause now i suck. When i want to get a good score i try and try and try until i manage enough squeezes. Theres usually 1-3 squeezes per fill, which means you can get an extra 200-600 pts per fill.

08-13-2008, 02:12 AM
can someone tell me what a squeeze is?

It's simple, the last score you post per instrument determines the difficulty you are entered in. You entered a Medium score and a Hard score in the same post. Since the Hard score comes last in the post that is what you are entered in, and your Medium score has been thrown out. If you want to compete in Medium, you will have to post another Medium score, but that will eliminate your Hard score entry.

You can only have 1 active entry per instrument. This prevents somebody from sweeping a particular instrument.

OK, this might be the only time I do this (because I'm just not any good) but here's a Medium Guitar score. I was pretty proud of this.

And today I've been working on FC'ing all Expert Vocal songs and I'm getting there. I ended up with a better GS score for vocals. :)
