Sure a Devil expert 85% shouldnt lose to a 6 lvl 100% But hell if the 100% can get the crowd going better then then the 85% they got my vote. Like real rock stars its all about the fans after all ;D
Like them dudes who played green grass and high tides. They did great but kinda just stood there. Even little things like headbanging, playing behind your head, or something will please the crowd better. Also playing songs that people can appeal to by haivng them say 'hey I know this song' and getting pumped up is a gamble to. The kids that did the Middle took that risk and suceeded. Our band played Tom Sawyer and we seemd to lose a bit on that gamble by missing a few key drum parts and bass lines. At first i complained because the judge took off points for not doing the original version of the song but irs ranked higher on difficulty so we figured we'd get better scores if we did that. Now looking back on it it seems we needed Geddy Lee's voice and we would of did better. Im not complaining just making a point that some songs can make a crowed feel for your band alot. Key point is though is when your playing... Look bad ass while doing it. Sure you may miss a few notes that will make you only get a 98% and may even get a low score technicly. But fans vote makes everything.
