The school are having what they call a 'fashion show' and i've been asked to play with a teacher

we need to do a well known song

the categories are 70's, 80's & 90's

I want an epic song thats got good guitar in it

I'm an intermidiet guitarist that can play every Bon Jovi song with ease (thats for skill level)

Teacher (singer)s range is 80's singer

MANOWAR!.. I've noticed.. I'm the only one who ever mentions Manowar on this site xP That just sucks..

Anyway! Play Manowar.. Manowar is like.. the definition of epic music.. But then again, it's really hard.. because.. The vocalist Eric Adams is (In my opinion) the best singer in the world.. But.. But.. Try!

If not.. If it's like a fashion show with women and all that, play Motley Crue's "Girls, girls, girls" =D

Or.. If it's not a little too old, then Kiss - Lovegun. Both wellknown and.. dunno.. Abit fashion-show like perhaps xD

Lemme think.. Skid Row! 18 and Life! Awesome song.. Dunno if it was ever populaer enough for students to reckonize it tho'..

Of course you can play some Van Halen or the likes aswell.. But dunno. It's abit boring and overdone to me. But it is impressive..

You know what.. If it's supposed to be famous and 80ies.. You just gotta play some Judas Priest. No question. Just do it.. Breaking the Law is wellknown ^^
FUCK YOU ALL!

Motley Crue's "Girls, girls, girls"


And this^


Both of those are perfect songs for a fashion show.
The beat is quite important, it should be something that the models can comfortably walk in time and pose to, so something like Trapped Under Ice by Metallica for instance just will not do.
Remember, your job criteria in the case of this particular gig is to make the models look good by providing a soundtrack for them to strut along to, not to draw attention to yourselves (and away from the models) by playing something uber-impressive and skillfull.

I wanna put it out there, I agree with everything this man says for the next decade, be it bandleading advice, or a recipe for a simple noodle dish.

Slacker has hit the nail on the head. This is not your gig, it is the models gig. And may God have mercy on your soul if you piss off a whole show of aspiring models . Go with something with a strong beat, such as the aforementioned songs, and DO NOT run around/strut up and down the stage/rip into an improv solo in the middle of the song. Play well, and play without drawing more attention to yourself than the absolute bear minimum. (You are playing the music, you will get SOME attention).

Best of luck dude. Break a leg, and here's something to think about. You're an integral part of the show... Does that mean by rights, you should have an All Access pass to everywhere? . My work here is done

Here ya go.

Chicken Noodle Soup.

1 (3 to 4-pound) whole chicken
1 quart chicken stock or low-sodium chicken broth
2 quarts water
2 medium onions, quartered
2 carrots, roughly chopped
2 celery stalks, roughly chopped
2 sprigs fresh thyme
5 or 6 parsley stems
1 bay leaf
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 ounces whole button mushrooms, quartered
1/2 cup diced onions
1/2 cup sliced carrots
1/2 cup small-diced celery
2 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 pound dried vermicelli noodles
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Place the chicken in a large stockpot or Dutch oven and cover with the chicken stock and 2 quarts water. Add the onion quarters, roughly chopped carrots and celery, thyme, parsley stems, and the bay leaf. Bring mixture to a boil, partially cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 1 hour. The chicken should easily pull away from the bones.

Using tongs, remove the chicken from the broth and set aside until cool enough to handle. Strain the cooking liquid through a fine-meshed sieve, lined with cheesecloth, discarding the vegetables and reserving the stock. Pull the chicken meat off the bones, discarding the bones, skin, and any fat. Shred and reserve meat.

Melt the butter in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Add the diced onions, carrots, and celery and cook until the vegetables are softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in reserved cooked chicken. Add reserved chicken stock and bring to a boil over high heat.

Season the soup with salt and pepper. Add vermicelli and simmer until noodles are cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in parsley. Serve hot.


Enjoy.

^ I'm not partial to onions, but I think I might have to try that out sometime

And for the love of God ask the models themselves what they'd like played.
Play your cards right and you might get a bit of sweet, sweet lovin'.

Oh yeah, guys, take it from an older guy who's been around a bit. DON'T get involved with a model, they are vain and emotionaly and financialy expensive and you have to beat every man they meet off with a stick.
Pick a girl who will support your musical endevours rather than hinder them.

You're still missing the point. This is not their gig, it is the models'. Overshadow the models, and you'll actually look worse.

Good songs, but they're horrible for a fashion show. Especially the 70's songs.

Yeah, imagine walking down the street in a slightly over-emphasised way, now imagine that there is a tune that plays in time to your steps, what tune would it be?

A perfect one is Relax by Frankie Goes To Hollywood, but that's hardly what a guitar band will be wanting to play.
#29
Higher Ground by Stevie Wonder would work nicely, assuming you have a wah pedal. Just make sure you don't do the RHCP, for it would be too overpowering for an event like this.

Eliminate any metal from your thoughts. It won't work.

Well in that case models NEED to be overshadowed if they cannot comprehend and walk to the epicness that is my suggested setlist.

I don't care if these models were professional. If you were to play that setlist at a modeling gig, you would overshadow them, no matter how well they walk to the music. You have to understand that playing the gig does not mean that you are the star of the gig. Overshadowing the models is a good way to ensure that you'll struggle to get another gig.
