Have several contrasting pieces, some technical, some slow, make sure they incorporate dynamics though, the HSC markers are really looking to see/hear if you know how to use them, work a bit on your stage presence too, if they enjoy your jumping around and the music, you'll get marked well.

Instead of using cliche songs that many people play, try more un used yet enjoyable songs.

The Attitude Song - Steve Vai <<Good for showing playing skills

Satch Boogie - Joe Satriani << Good for playing skills, dynamics, enjoyable song

Bouree in E-Minor - J.S. Bach << Very good for dynamics and contrast to the others

Scarified - Racer X << Come on, you know you want to show off and melt faces.

Pearl Jam - Yellow Ledbetter
RHCP - Soul to Squeeze, or some others...
By reading this magnificently and wonderful, adjective-filled signature, you have just wasted approximately 7 seconds of your life.

I did Seek and Destroy and Call of Ktulu acoustic, and Welcome Home (Sanitarium) electric. They're all Metallica songs, then i did Iron Man, by black Sabbath, and i got 88/100 for performance.

You can do metal if it's what you do best.

Paranoid Android, Just (Radiohead), Mayonaise, Geek USA (Smashing Pumpkins), some 80s Chilis stuff.

John Petrucci - Glasgow Kiss..

Van Halen - Eruption

Stevie Ray Vaughan - Texas Flood..

Ocean - John Butler Trio.

I've heard HSC markers are very partial to fingerstyle acoustic artists.

Fight the man. Play some metal

But if you can't play metal, some satriani, petrucci, or EJ should do the trick.

Music for HSC seems like such a waste of time to me
The will be heartache,
there will be rain,
and joy I can't explain.

My friend did this one. Beautiful, breathtaking piece. Yet, I doubt TS should take hearsay advice if it's not his thing.

i think if you can get paranoid android down it would do wonders. if your singing try fake plastic trees by radiohead as well. i think the contrast will be great.

Why?

Music is a really competitive industry and I think it would be hard to actually get anywhere worthwhile with.

5 years.

5 years to the god damn day.

You bumped this thread exactly 5 years after it was first made.

Why?

EDIT: I also just noticed I'm a scant 9 days away from my 5 year UG anniversary. Damn I feel old.

Let's all think about what we were doing five years ago. Then grossly inflate how successful we are to each other in this thread.

I was ready to take my fifth major...
