I really want to play an instrumental guitar rock song for a talent show at my school...

at the same time, i dont want to come off as a complete asshole..i love performing for the sake of performing (especially the song i want to perform), but i dont want to come off as some kid looking for a pat on the back for the sake of his ego.

I won a talent show doing that. Just don't play anything too weird.
Cam Sampbell's my hero

I don't find any performers in the talent show conceited, unless I personally know them and I KNOW they are conceited.

As long as you don't give off a look that says "I'm better than you!" then you should be okay!
Although, half the people I've seen doing talent show things, they've always looked like complete dicks that are up themselves!

its all about how you act. talent shows are a good way to perform in a good enviornment, as long as you dont walk around school 4 a week telling everyone how badass you are
#12
hey just do it, who cares if anyone thinks your conceited, the point is you want to get up there and play something for an audience

and good luck on winning

some people just think they are fun

Be modest at all times and you shouldn't have a problem with looking cocky-- ever. Just don't over-do it. You'd look like a douchebag who's trying to be cocky subtly if you do.

No, it's fine. The point of talent show is to show off your talent.

Just for curiosity's sake, what song are you performing?

Trust me man, it's Smoke on the Water. Deep Purple only wrote one song.

The point of a talent show is cheap entertainment. Even if you win, you're just competing against peers, so there's nothing to get conceited over. Chances are none of you will become well known, and even if any of you do, it won't necessarily be the ones who won the talent show. I doubt and record company A&R guys are going to be scouting out the show.

Just go play, give an honest performance, and if you have fun and at least a few people in the audience enjoy it, then it's all good. No matter what, you won't be able to make everyone there happy.

If you think playing there makes you somehow superior to anybody, then you probably are conceited, and you probably won't be able to hide that. If you actually are cool, then there shouldn't be any problem.

What song are you playing?

At my school if a popular kid does it it would bo ok, but when a kid with no friends he was called a pussy trying to be cool

...Isn't that the point of a talent show?

this.
Don't come off saying, I'm am so much better than everyone else. I'm fully goona win, and if I don't the judges don't know ****.

Come off happy that you were given the opportunity to perform, and see others perform

Just as long as you have a rhythm section behind you (drums and bass) you'll be alright. However, I think when someone goes up there on their own with and electric, not only does it not sound good, but they do look more concieted than someone who is playing in a group.
