Yeah, you definitely don't want to do that. It's minus 3 points for every extra song you pick so if the band plays 20 songs and you picked 21 songs for them to play you're already down three.
As for how the rest of scoring goes, here's what it says in the rules sections...
2 points will be awarded
for guessing a song that was played that night, but not in the correct spot in the setlist.
6 points will be awarded
for guessing the correct spot in the set a song was played
3 points will be deducted
for each extra song that you guess. (If you pick 20 songs to be played, and the band plays 18, you lose 6 points.)
If the last song that you choose is the encore closer for the band, you are awarded
4 bonus points.(Total of 6 points if you incorrectly chose which spot it would be played in, 10 if you correctly choose the spot in which its played.)
If you correctly guess the opener, you are awarded
4 bonus points.
...its one thing to pick good songs its another to pick good spots and how many songs you think they'll play effects that a lot.
