Does anyone know approximate Rock Meter math? It seems that the higher you are in the rock meter, the harder it is to gain rock meter points and the inverse is true when you are low. Obviously you gain rock meter level a lot easier on the easier difficulties (and you have to hit like -400% on easy to fail). Has anyone actually studied these values? Have any hard data?

I think that, aside from the actual "math" in the rock meter, that on Easy there's a certain amount of real time that must pass before it allows you to completely fail out. So if you just don't hit any notes for the first 30 seconds, the rock meter will stay at the bottom but not fail out, but if you play half the song and then stop playing, you'll fail out right after the rock meter gets to the bottom. Maybe that applies to medium, too, not sure.

I do know the actual number for easy, it's 15% of the song. Doesn't depend on time at all, varies by length of song obviously.
