hey me and this band are tryin to figure out some songs for a gig in a month
we need some suggestions on what we should play
all players have at least one year of experience in playin guitar
we need a good, not too hard, not too slow song to play (intermediate difficulty)
a more modern, a bit more mainstream band to play (but not entirely pop/rock)
maybe alternative and or hard rock

got any ideas?


ehh some songs down there are a little too easy.
up it on the difficulty a notch or 2
we arent complete newbies

i've always found pop to be harder to play than metal... especially shred metal... it's just really fast tremolo picking and the occasional palm mute... and the only chords you have to worry about are power chords...

STAIR---- i mean uh Guerilla Radio - Rage against the Machine. the solo is really easy and its a fun song if you can get the vocals down.

NO!! Would sound like **** without a synth player, or like 3 boards of effect pedals.

Try something that everyone knows, like Foo Fighters - Everlong or RHCP - Californication

in scotland they call carbonated drinks 'juice' so you would say a can of juice for example. But they call poop jobbies, so their take on things doesn't count.

So I was wondering, are black people capable feeling love? I mean can their brains comprehend that kind of emotion, or are they not programmed that way.
