Hey.

Me and a mate are doing a guitar / bass duet thingie for our school's talent night and we don't know what to play. We can sing a bit, so don't suggest anything that requires an amazing voice. Song suggestions would be appreciated. Nothing too heavy.

Cheers.

I think there's an old saying out there that goes, "If you can't show off well, don't show off at all".. so it's good that you guys aren't looking to do any fancy stuff. You could try Crossroads by Eric Clapton (the more laid-back version, not the fast and crazy version by Cream). Vocals aren't too demanding, you just need a hard-edged voice.

A few ideas:
-Get a kickin' drummer and play YYZ.
-Play My Hero acoustic, just like Dave Grohl and Nate Mendel did on Kilborne
-play some blues, easiest trick in the book

No.


Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

My first thought when I read 'talent quest' and 'guitarist + bassist' was Scarified, but since you're not shredders this'll be a no-no


Californication, Snow ((Eh Oh)), Under the Bridge or basically any populair RHCP song would do (though do prepare that someone'll need to sing).

Play some blues songs (like said before).

There's an acoustic version of 'plug in baby' by muse floating around somewhere which is very cool as well, but I don't remember much of the singing.

what about 'Apologize' by 'One Republic'?

It's a perfect sing-along
