Good Day Fellow UG'ers.

Here's the story: I just did a telephone interview with the owner of a very classy restaurant and was offered a chance to play a bit of classical in front of one of South-Africa's foremost wine makers and his guests. The trouble is, I only know a limited amount of classical music (3 songs at most). If anybody could give me any advice on easy, nice sounding songs to learn before Thursday, I would be very grateful. 10 songs would probably suffice.

I have been playing finger style for a while, but am not very good at speed picking.

Thank you UG!

I'm glad he handled it calmly. Joe Satriani should realize that with only 7 notes in the world, some songs are going to sound similar.

'Romance'. There's several versions but these are my favourite two:

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/m/misc_traditional/romance_anonimo_power_tab.htm

The second one's probably easier.


You could also try a simplified version of 'Asturias' by Albeniz, or try learning the full thing:

For a nice and easy one that still sounds good, try 'Is There Anybody Out There' by Pink Floyd:

Pachabels canon in D - easy to learn and sounds quite good
Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton -- sounds really nice and gives variety of song.

Adelita by Francisco Tarrega is easy and quite fun.

Hmmm... That's all I can think of right now! Sorry!
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.

LOL looks like someone got ****ed up.

It's not that I hope he did badly, it's just that 10 impressioanable CLASSICAL songs in 3 days for someone who hasn't had years and years of experience, is kind of pushing it.
