ok, so my school hosts an inter-house music contest every year, and i'm called upon to do the solo again this year.
last year i did canon rock, which was pretty much perfect for the occasion, but a bit long.
so basically, i need technically difficult but awesome sounding songs, under about 3 minuites.
thanks in advance
In a soundcheck there's never too much guitar. Just not enough of all the other instruments.

I'm going to do Technical Difficulties at a similar event to this one. Either Scarified or Tech. Diff. would make your peers' jaws drop.

Technical Difficulties is so awesome. One of my favorites from Racer X. Paul Gilbert is a golden bowl of awesome chips.

How about Satch Boogie? It's not that difficult, but it's a great song.

Assuming you're running this show solo:
Eruption by EvH if you want something easy yet flashy-
Big Sur Moon by Buckethead-

Assuming you have at least a drummer and bassist behind you
Scarified if you want something that's technical and flashy- thing is, is that the bass and drum parts are pretty challenging themselves.
Cliffs of Dover is a good middle ground between the two, somewhat challenging guitar song and easy bassline and drum part.

Im sorry, I just don't see how you could argue that hardcore isn't metal. That just seems arrogant to me.

Yes, its its own kind of metal, but its still metal.

Something they'll actually enjoy listening to, as well as showing off your skills. I'd probably go for something by Satch or Andy Timmons - if I could play it lol
