hey..i just found out my drummer won't be available for our cruddy high school talent show end of January, so I guess i need to do solo crud with a backing track. Got some choices, and if you could suggest any others that's great....just help me decide, i'm not good enough to decide....i guess i'm a shredder but i like emotional instrumentals best.

Hourglass - Liquid Tension Experiment (with live piano player)
Just Look Up - Joe Satriani
Is There Love In Space? - Joe Satriani
Souls of Distortion - Joe Satriani
Victor Wooten Bass Medley crap - ...vic wooten
Country Music - Stu Hamm
Legend of Zelda?- Koji Kondo (with live piano player)
Revelation - Joe Satriani
Surfing - Joe Satriani
State of Grace - Liquid Tension Experiment
Glasgow Kiss - John Petrucci (haven't learned yet, might not be safe)
Canon Rock - JC
Train of Angels - Joe Satriani

something like this.....if you think any of these would be good for a high school, or have any prog suggestions.....hit me.

If your school is anything like mine, no one will know anything, even Canon Rock. Try doing a song that's either very popular right now (which will probably leave you with Bullet For My Valentine or Linkin Park), or a song that has been on guitar hero, and then do a Joe Satriani thing just to show off. You don't have to do a popular song, but it'll be much more impressive if you play a song that a majority will know. And since the average highschool doesn't have much music taste whatsoever (Most people in my school don't even know who Rush is), you don't have much to choose from, but luckily Guitar Hero got famous enough to open up music to them

You mentioned Victor Wooten? Are you playing bass or guitar? AND, how will you get backing tracks for any of these tunes?
#14

i'll play either....how to get guitar backing tracks, there's a few bands that make them, guitarbt still supplies the tracks those bands make.....and with vic you don't need backing tracks.

I'd be quite interested to see you pulling of a Wooten piece then move onto a Petrucci. If you can play the way you're making out you can play then thumbs up!! Compose something of you're own and let the audience know it's you're own piece. You'll get a whole load more respect that way.

Go with The Legend of Zelda for an intro, then go into a song from Guitar Hero just because people will know it and you will get better crowd response

Do some Victor wooten stuff and then move onto impressive Satriani/whatever else. although at my school, half the kids wouldn't realize you just switched instruments....
Don't need a gun to blow your mind.

do some john 5

you could do Feisty Cadavers, Sounds Of Impalement, Damaged, Soul Of a Robot, The Washing Away of Wrong, or maybe even his cover of welcome to the jungle, which is better than the original IMO.

just cuz i can play these things doesn't mean i'm good....1 song , 5 minutes, that's all we got.....and i've tried to compose...it's just failing....and stealing.
