Wonderful match by TS but in the end simply overwhelmed by the pure skill and simplicity of unfluffed. A true professional in action.

Sum 41/Avril Lavinge if she's into that shit.


Failing that, give them your best Dimmu.

little wing. I LOVE that song. Im currently making my own version of it. its in my opinion one of the BEST songs ever made
#8
Well you could either play one of your most technical songs and hope she appreciates it, or play something easy and pop-punky and maybe she'll just be like "o hes awsum he plays sum 41!"

I'd probably recommend Sum 41-The Hell song or the Offspring-The Kids Aren't Alright or something if you want her to pick you, but I'd personally just play my best song.

Sum 41.

It's in the same ballpark as Avril. Well...kind of. Not really. But she'll know it.

And the stuff Dave wrote back when he was still in the band is pretty damn impressive guitar-wise.

So you should have chops and repertoire taken care of.

I assume that MTV and not some tone deaf girl who's never played an instrument will be picking the band mates so go for technical.

Judging from their programming, I assume that MTV doesn't even know what music is.

edit: Realistically, if you can't rap or you can play more than 3 chords and look like a pretty boy, you have ZERO chance.

Why don't you play something like Avril Lavigne, but add a sweet technical solo?

Ask her what she likes. Don't say you already know. Learn Avril Lavigne song. But also learnt something technical.

"I can play this, but to demonstrate the fact I can play more technical, difficult stuff and other genres, I've also learnt this"

It'll show dedication

I think you should play something fast as warm up for 20 seconds (let's say No speak - At vance intro cos it's nice and fast). Then play something mainstream as actual performance.

Be sure you look nice, cos I bet that appearance will be very important for those guys!
Signatures are overrated.

Wook at him wave his wittle arms and rant about big bad MTV :3

Its probably already scripted by the way. Part of the story is she probably has a crush on some guy who plays guitar and shes gonna pick him to be in the band. But it could be you! :0

When Made did 2 episodes from my high school, they had these people who just followed the girl around and told her what to say and what her friends should do etc. I mean obviously there are grains of truth in it, but they edit so much and control so much that its not really what it seems.

Although to be fair they probably had to edit out me and my friends thousands of times >_>

Listen here shit for brains, MTV stands for MUSIC TELEVISION. I sure as hell don't see any god damn shows relating to mainly music, do you!? Any ****ing moron can make a beat and some rhyming stanzas and call it a song, but real music involves determination, resolve, a willing to put forth a contribution to music. Not some half-assed attempt just to look like a god damn failure/stereotype in whatever genre. They might as well rename themselves STV for SHIT TV! **** Jersey Shore, **** 16 & Pregnant, **** Sweet 16, and **** the newer CEOs for their ruination of what used to be a great program. You best get your head out of your ass and realize soon, or else a buttload of people will troll you for a close-minded statement.

Now if you don't mind, I'm going to listen to something that ISN'T played on the radio because I am frankly ****ing sick of listening to Lady Gaga, Eminem, and Lady Antebellum. Peace.

something joe satriani like satch boogie or into the light.
into the light is a good song because it shows emotion and technicality.

and if you could pull it off (doubt it) play some buckethead (soothsayer/jordan) would be good.

Right..because MTV is SUPPOSED to be about ****ing guidos, 16 year old teens with kids, and spoiled little *****s. Because that's what they were totally going for when they first broadcasted...

I saw that show once and it was the worst thing I'd ever seen. Do yourself a favor and keep yourself respect.
If you really feel the need, Wonder Wall. Crappy song, unless your a dumb ass teenage girl with 0 musical talent and probably the personality of a brick wall!

iwrestledabearonce - Tastes Like Kevin Bacon

OR

Carnifex - Hell Chose Me

Those are your only options. Drop B grindcore OR 7 string madness. Anything else is for newbs.

OT: Play something you think will get their attention. And please, clean yourself up before you do it. Looking good improves your chances (especially for mainstream garbage like MTV)
You know, you're probably reading this saying "Hey, I'm bored, maybe this'll be funny?"
It's not. Too bad. No, I am not refunding you those 6 seconds of your life. So :P
