Theres a tl;dr at the bottom

At the risk of sounding arrogant, heres my situation.

I have to perform with another guitarist and a vocalist. Heres the problem:- The guitarist has been playing only for four months, and we all know how sucky we were at that time. I have to perform with him for the school assembly. Under normal conditions, I wouldve said no, but I have no choice The vocalist isnt that great either, ive performed with him previously. Not too good an experience. And I am a relatively average player who has been playing for two years. Rhythm is my forte, though I'm sure I can pull of a few leads if I have to.

I need you guys to suggest to me a few songs which we can perform at the school assembly. They need to be PATRIOTIC songs. (Stuff like star spangled banner and god save the king doesnt work, I'm from India, so the songs have to be applicable everywhere) And SOOTHING. Distortion at the chorus would be a plus for personal satisfaction

I was thinking of those type of songs where one acoustic guitar is playing the rhythm and then another distorted guitar joins in for the rhythm, so I can cover up for his mistakes, if he makes any. And yeah he has only an acoustic guitar >.< I have an electric though, so yeah

tl;dr

Need a song with an acoustic guitar preferably where two guitars are playing rhythm (Dont Go Away - Oasis has 2 right?) or a song which a guitarist playing for 4 months can cover the rhythm, and also has simple vocals. They need to be SOOTHING, PATRIOTIC songs. And easy vocals would be a plus as well

Thanks, and ask any questions you might have


tl;dr tl;dr

Need piss easy, patriotic, soothing songs.

Patriotic? I don't know any. Make one up involving uncle sam, striped boxers, and tang.

I'm sorry, but I don't understand how you can have a world wide patriotic song, and I'm damned sure Oasis have never written a patriotic song. As for a simple song where an acoustic starts out and an electric coms over it, try Smells Like Teen Spirit. Piece of piss, and everyone knows that song.

Has to be patriotic.
And I meant the way the guitars are played in Dont Go Away, not the patriotism. (Is that a word?)

Global Patriotism?

So patriotism to the human race or planet Earth.

Any song that disses aliens?

Do something by the Beatles about love or something.

Do this song...it's pretty patriotic:

By global patriotism I meant a song which would work for any country


And ****, sweet home alabama might actually work

But everyone knows the song, so me might butcher it by changing the lyrics :S

Plus, it's easy to play.

If you have the mad skills needed for the solo.

And your vocalist is half decent.

Please change the lyrics.
It's no fun otherwise.
