Hello UG.

I have this upcoming gig in a little more than a week, and there are two of us. Thing is, none of us can sing, so we only play instrumental songs.

Our setlist as of now is the following:

* Rodrigo y Gabriela - Tamacun
* Blind Guardian - The Bards Song
* Led Zeppelin - The Rain Song
* Improvisational 12-bar blues
* Improvisational harmonica/Dylan-esque thing

We need more songs to fill out the time. The playing time is 30 minutes to an hour. Any ideas whatsoever?

instrumental? Try jazz songs like dave Brubeck or herbie hancock. Charmeleon is a great jazz song to improvise around, take five by dave brubeck has a piano playing Am and G and sax plays the melody. You can do these with the guitars.
"Been Dazed And Confused For So0 LoNg ItZ n0T Tru3"

Fender LoneStar Strat.
Peavy VYPYR.

conventional rock/pop/metal doesn't really do instrumentals. imo this is because they tend to be fairly musically simple so rely on the range of tones provided by vocals. Jazz is probably your best bet for finding some good instrumental stuff. Some joe satriani acoustic stuff may suit also, could be arranged for 2 guitars to make it simpler to play.

EDIT: i just remembered zackkim, he has a bunch of 2 guitar arrangements of famous songs - you wouldn't have to play both guitars at once :P http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjwEGPSxhjg&feature=related
The only 6 words that can make you a better guitarist:

Learn theory
Practice better
Practice more
