Song for the Week: Are You Gonna Be My Girl

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: difficulty, 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.

another good song for this week, hopefully we will get more entries (as long as people aren't busy with rb2).

No poll this week?

Well, I'll give this a shot, easy song.

No poll, with only one more week and participation so low because of RB2 I didn't put up a poll this time.

Gah, i always seem to struggle with expert guitar on this, never 100%'d it before. Just the quick double-strums always seem to mess me up at least once.

I'm not sure what you've decided about allowing scores from RB1 when you begin the new contest, but this song is the perfect example of the discrepancy between the two engines specifically for vocals.

I will post a photo of my 100% Expert vocals score using the RB2 engine the and it will be roughly 10-15k below what has been done/is possible on the RB1 engine.

Hope that helps.

On a side note, the guitar mechanics are exactly the same (with the possible exception of Breakneck Speed making more difficult solos "easier" to play), and the differences in drums are only noticeable to those who are 100%-ing songs and are optimizing their OD path.

I'm probably out for this week. Kids have been sick all week so I've had very little RB time ... now that I have time, I'm going for Endless Setlist for Platinum Vox. Never was able to do it in RB1 so this is a big thing for me. Good Luck, everyone.

Btw, my vocal score isn't optimal, but optimal on RB1's engine is at least 10-15k more than in RB2's engine for Vocals...
