(Sorry in advance for this thread)
I'm going in a school talent show and I'd like some good songs to play (instumental) but I can't think of any. I've just learnt Greensleeves but I'd need another 2 or 3 songs. Any help would be amazing .

If your going to follow Ryans advice i´d say take a look if always with me, always with you by Joe satriani fits your level. It´s a very nice and tasty song.

Otherwise, Cavatina is always a great song to learn.

speed kills is pretty good, tender surrender by steve vai, and you could also play little wing like SRV does it, u kno, instrumental.

Personaly if it were me I would do something older with a nice catchy melody, that makes the listener feel good. It will be fun for the audiance to listen to and if you get it stuck in their head big bonus points when it comes time to crown a winner!

For a talent show your best bet is to pick a fairly familar song. For instance everyone and their grandma knows a few of these songs I've added links for... if you pick a random song nobody has ever heard of chances are alot of people won't be quite as into it as they would be with a familiar song

My personal favorite, "Tears in heaven" by Eric Clapon

I'm very much liking isn't she lovely. But I'm a visual learner. Any chance of a video lesson of how to play that version?

Glad to hear it... I'm a huge fan of it too, but truth be told I've never met anyone who didnt care for that song. It's hard to hate a song that Stevie Wonder wrote about his first child being born

As for the video less, unfortunetly I have no clue. I know that Sungha Jung transcribes most of his covers by ear and his mentor Ulli Bogershausen helps with some as well. You may be able to shoot him a message on youtube or on his website to see if you can get a copy of his transcriptions. You can always look on here or youtube for other versions, or attempt to transcribe it by ear.

Sorry I couldn't be more help!
