Me and my friend are hoping to get a band the gether and need songs to cover,

we mainly play classic rock (Led Zeppelin, Guns n Roses) and rock (RHCP, The Who) in general but will play some older metal e.g Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Ozzy...

we've already pretty much decided we're going to cover GnR - Paradise City but would like afew more to practise

thanks for any help given

Practice writing some songs ;]

Original material is far better, usually.
If video games make you violent, does monopoly make you a millionaire?

i think you should know first a couple of songs to have subconsious idea of how songs are written
so do both

I think it depends on your skill level. However, avoid cliche covers like stairway to heaven, smells like teens spirit. Attempt something much less expected, that people will still recognize.

if you're a beginner guitarist, you can always go with Smoke on the Water. It's all power chords and if you tune your guitar to drop d, all you have to do is slide your index finger up and down the neck while strumming.

im a bit past the stage of beginner and am pretty average, i play mainly rythm anyway and my friends pretty damn good. Smoke on the waters a tad to cliched and simple, but thanks anyways

My list:

-Basket Case
-Fat Lip
-Misery Business
-Gunshot to the head of Trepdiadtion

Also, try some rock covers of pop songs. Umbrella and Since You been Gone have already been proven to work well.
#11
For Maiden try out Aces High, or if you want to be more unique in your selection give songs like The Prisoner or Still Life a shot.
#13
how 'bout some AC/DC, any song by them is just three chords and a pentatonic solo, pretty simple, but great songs, especially with covers as nearly everyone knows them

happy to help dude, also if you're into them, then KISS have some pretty simple stuff out there, and if you do some old metal covers then how about some judas priest
