Yes it would seeing as he would need to play 5 instruments all at once.

Eruption, man that makes you a total bad ass! Maybe you could do an encore of either Smells Like Teen Spirit or Blitzkrieg Bop! Nobody's ever done those songs at a talent show; you'd be the most original kid at school!

Erotic Nightmares. I don't know if it's less than four minutes or not, but who cares? They're not going to force you off stage.

play it good. thats all the advice i can give you.

oh and make sure you have good stage presence. dont look nervous, smile and play to the crowd. it'll be more fun that way

my friend and i played Free Bird last year. we had to edit it to 5 min, so we couldn't do the whole song. and neither of us could play the solo... but we started bangin the power chords at the end. it was the last act and we got the most applause. twas pretty sweet!

These don't sound like very good ambitions when driving...Judas Priest makes people want to go 200 mph, and Realm of Chaos is now an album for ramming shit. You are dangerous, dangerous people.

Just use the main licks (opening part, fast hammer on pull of run, divebombs, trem picks, and tapping part especially) but add in your own licks (even fast pentatonic **** makes crowds go nuts) to make the solo have your own little flavor.
#25
Dude i'm wonderin the same thing. Our talent show is comin up soon and I'd like to perform somethin on my own as well... I'm considerin Bladecatcher by Mastodon except without all the weird effects in it
#26
i dont see what all the hate is for. most kids havent heard eruption and non-guitar players think tapping is as hard as it looks. besides, chances are that you will be the 1st one at ur skool to play it
Geets:
Ibanez GSA60
Epiphone SG/LP custom

It gives people wet dreams, yes


Here, I think you'll find it pretty easy to play.

I don't know..I've heard a lot of kids in GC butcher it.
#29
ok, if ya wanna do a song that's not eruption, but need a band, do this:

1. go here for backing tracks
2. find a song
3. burn cd of said song
4. play through school pa/aux. input of amp
5. get teh *********

1-4 is necessary, 5 is preferable, but optional
