Hi guys..

Theres a music competition at school in about 4 months but i wanna start practicing it now if i chose to do a hard song.. But i just do not know what song i should do.

Ive thought about various Tommy Emmanuel songs and a couple of others but i cannot make a final desicion.

Could you guys please name a few songs by any artists that would be a good idea to do?

Cheers :)

depends uopn your playing style and ability and also the amount of time you're allowed at school. my friend's band actually did a cover of a foo fighters song. you could try that. theres also some of the good ole' stuff like Barracuda by ?Heart.

Some Nirvana, Weezer, Helmet, Green Day, Blink 182.
If you really practice maybe some Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Coheed and Cambria.

And if you're really serious you could try some Dream Theater, Steve Vai, Van Halen, Joe "The Satch" Satriani, and of course Malmsteen. But i wouldn't recommend it though.
