We could use more testers. The process is time consuming and I don't get to test as much as I want. More people could lead to more variety of testing. Noble does a good job of grouping people together to pass things along.

DMB "Away From the World" go get it NOW !!
Specially more that are seasoned and know the game, and the possible rule breakers(chords on easy, kick + gem on easy drums, that type of thing).
Plus the more testers we have, the more groups we could set up, and we could really increase the output of songs.
As many as we do get out, there's still about 175 - 200 songs in the process, and more get added every day. At our current rate, we are only going to get farther and farther behind.
So if you've got the cash, the know how, and the time, then we could most definitely use your(or anyone else here on the forums) help
Yep there is a docs section listed here :
I don't know if you need to be a member to read this however.
The 'hard' rules that I can recall off the top of my head...
No chords on easy. No blue or orange gems on easy bass/guitar.
No gems on top of a kick note on easy drums.
Only one gem on top of a kick note on medium drums.
No orange notes on medium guitar or bass. No green/blue chords on medium guitar or bass.
No three note chords on hard guitar or bass.
No Green/orange chords on hard guitar or bass.
The first letter of each new vocal phrase section needs to be capitalized.
No other words outside of proper nouns in the vocal phrase should contain capital letters.
There are more like the 4th, 8th, 16th and 32nd notes and what bpm/difficulty they are appropriate for, but that starts to get into the gray area, and CAN be more of a judgement call than a hard rule.
It sounds hard, and in the beginning it can overwhelm you(and honestly there is still stuff I miss, and I've been doing this almost a year now), but once you start doing it you pick up on these 'hard' rule errors as soon as you see them.
Don't let the rules list intimidate you. Playtesting isn't that hard, especially if you stick with your instrument of choice. There's a lot of resources for new testers, and the community is always glad to answer questions. And nobody should ever worry that they have to test "more" - do whatever you can, it's all appreciated.
We can always use more new faces in playtesting. Even if you contribute casually, it's still one more pair of hands making the workload lighter.

I've always been considering lending a hand, as I have so much free time this summer that I could playtest multiple songs a day (I play all 4 instruments on expert, however I probably couldn't playtest vox that much cause I'm not good with pitch :P), the only problem for me is coming up with the money. I'd love to help out but as of right now I'm broke, so I'll have to wait just a little bit to be able to come out with the money, and even that may take longer than planned, seeing as I'm saving up for a couple other things, too :P
I am very close to taking the plunge. There is a four month premium membership, correct? I just feel like I would abandon it as soon as I start college in August, because ultimately, that is more important.
