Ok so me and a friend are doing a show for our entire school. I'm somewhat of an intermediate-advanced begginer guitarist. He's new, he just picked his up a few weeks ago. Are there any suggestions for songs? Short songs more preferably.

If not any songs, does anybody have any ideas on what we COULD do? I have already written music on rhythm and lead guitar but the songs I've already have written may be too hard. I was thinking power chord progression with a lead intro, melody, some improvisation (people at my school go nuts over my improvisation over the blues major/minor pentatonic scales and when I tap over lydian) and outro.

I don't want to make him seem unimportant so if anything I'd play something simple.

Any suggestions?

Smoke on the Water.

Chicks who don't know music (and there's A LOT of them at my school) will all want your penis

And Peccas, yes you should say who it's by. The Kinks version and Van Halen's version are WAY different (well, not way different, but by the way the singers sing, and the fills on guitar, all that nonsense)

I can do:
- Alternate Picking (past 208 notes per minute, my metronome goes up to 208)
- Basic Tapping
- I know the Lydian, Blues Major and Minor Pantatonic Scales
- Chord switching is a breeze
- Vibrado is very easy
- Basic legato, I can't play "The Trooper" but I can legato decently

Intermediate requires sweep picking.

And also, I'm taken and he's single (Since that seems like a factor?)
