Doing Better This Tournament

Right now I'm ranked at #21 in the current Guitar Hero tournament. I played the song "Monsters" all the way through last night with no mistakes just the 2nd time I played it. I've been trying to improve my score (basically I've got to hit every note right PLUS use the whammy bar a lot and strategically use my star power) to improve my standings, but I haven't been able to beat my own high score. There's still time left in the tournament, but I hope I don't get displaced lower than 25. There are only 260 entrants, and I'd like to finish at least in the top 10%.
