so basically i'm in a band and we have 2guitars (lead+rythem) a bass player (also singer) drums and a truley awsome synthesiser (i can't spell tht word lol)

so anyway we're not quite ready to write our own stuff so we're looking for some songs to cover it doesn't have to have the exact same set up but a simular one will help.


we mainly play classic rock,punk and a bit of prog rock but none of us are closed minded .


any help apreciated.

Disturbed is the only band i know which uses synth

they're Heavy Metal, but their songs are pretty decent and easy to play an they're are pretty hard-rock'ish

The Cars? Just What I Needed and Best Friend's Girl are pretty good ones.

Billy Idol? Rebel Yell and White Wedding are cool.

Rush? They use a bit of synth sometimes.

And last but not least, you can never go wrong with a bit of Pearl Jam.

Rush uses a ton of synth in their '82-'87 period. If you guys are good enough instrumentalists to pull it off then I strongly recommend it.
#6
good adivse guys and it doesn't need to inlcude a synth as our synth guy is pretty amazing, and also plays bass,guitar, and keyboard not to mention he has writen himself into song's before.

Dude, Mr. Roboto. /thread But seriously, HORSE the Band has good stuff, as does The Who. I have always wanted to hear a version of The Trooper by Iron Maiden with a synth lead.

im unsure why you dont think your ready to started writing yet:S
i'd give it a try first even if you don't like it to start with,
it can be bad if you started jsut doing covers
my old band did that and we just didn't end up writing our own stuff for like a year and a half
#22
my band has the same setup, but a keyboard and not a synth, if your synth guy had a keyboard you could do alot more stuff, may band does a couple cover still, but guns N' Roses, Black Sabbath, AreoSmith, Boston, Supertramp.... you get the idea could be done with a keyboard... wait i think supertramp mite not have 2 guitars but... you get the idea.
