hey guys,
I've been asked if I can play an instrumental acoustic piece for my schools next music night, but I have no idea what to do. Last time I did drifting by Andy Mckee , but I don't want to perform the same piece again (plus I've been told I can't) Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can learn? preferably a similar style thats not to hard to learn/play once you get the idea, but still sounds awesome cheers in advance guys

also, sorry if this is in the wrong forum

I do my own rendition of ocean and it sounds fine, it's a pretty strict pattern, just throw your own fills in after each time, it's pretty easy being in open C or whatever that tunings called.

Since you like andy mckee, if you wouldn't mind doing another by him, my favorite to play is ebon coast, it's definitely not too difficult. Kotaro Oshio has cool stuff too if you haven't heard it, not as flashy but cool.

I seem to attract girls.
Which is annoying, cos I'm a girl and I like cock.
