Hey Pit

Could use some help - I'm in an Elective Music class at my high school and we've been studying the Classical Period. In about 4 weeks or so each member of the class has to perform a piece (or part of a piece, you know) composed in the Classical Period (can also be done in a group, but I think I'll do it individually).

No problem if I was a classical guitarist, but I'm much more profiecent as an electric player and I can play fairly fast (Children Of Bodom, some of DragonForce's stuff etc if it matters - but damned messy, of course).

So I was wondering if any of you had any recommendations or pieces in mind - preferrably fast and fun?

Thanks, all help is appreciated!

Any of Paganini's Caprices.

Something from Vivaldi's Four Seasons...Bach-Allegro...Leclair - Tambourin...

For recreational purposes...the intro to Dark Lunacy's Defaced is a rather nice piece...Emilie Autumn's Unlaced album...particularly the title track and Manic Depression

Orange Blossom Special and Sugarfoot Rag come to mind. both are fiddle tunes, though both of those videos are on guitar.



Not exactly from the classical period, bruv.

psh, like anyone cares about the OP in the pit.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
