Hi guys, basically as title...
Need to do a 20 minute performance, the exam board is Edexcel.
Last year i did the good old Little Wing and Always With Me.
So far i think im going do to Lenny - SRV & Tender Surrender - Vai.
The pieces need to be of about grade 6-7 standard, any suggestions welcome

anything by Vai will be fine, especially tender surrender.
be careful though, i did For The Love Of God for my GCSE Mock last year and they said it wasn't enough, so be careful you dont get an idiot examiner who doesn't know the music properly >=(

-Scarified (Always scores well)
-Stockholm Syndrome
-Anything Santana as long as you get you're tone down

All i could think of, sorry.

I'll be playing through microcube > tube screamer > wah if needed so tone shouldnt be dire, but id rather play clean stuff like lenny.. just a generally nicer sound through a smaller amp.

haha for our GCSE the difficulty of the piece only counts for three marks out of thirty and anything harder than grade 4 doesnt make a difference. so you could could play smells like teen spirit, lose one mark for difficulty and so get 29/30 (assuming you played it perfectly) and therefore get an A*

I hear you, i got an A* in GCSE (no, it's not A2 but i assume the grading is similar) for Seek and Destroy without a solo.
