My guitarist for my school's Battle Of The Bands recently dropped out of my band, and we don't wish to replace him because we have no good guitarists at our school. We were going to play Afterlife by Avenged Sevenfold and My Life For Hire by A Day To Remember, as well as an original, and these songs require two guitars.

However, most bands have 2 guitarists nowadays. I'm thinking doing a Disturbed song or something like that, but I need suggestions. There doesn't have to be one guitarists, just so that it can be performed by one guitarist and not be missing much.

So, suggestions?

TL;DR Need metal/rock song suggestions with only one guitar part (more or less)

White Stripes?
Certainly makes sense.

Just watch some live videos (a lot of their recorded songs have overdubs).

Well judging by your musical taste, something filled with lame teenage angst lyrics and pseudo heavy riffing. Even a 3 minute long breakdown will do the trick

You can do Beast and The Harlot with one guitar if the harmonies aren't essential to you.
Dude, where's my band?

Zeppelin. It's got shredding, emotion, one guitar, slow bits, awesome riffs and it's technical, so you can show off a little bit.

You could probably get away with My Life for Hire with only one guitar.

Eh, I have no suggestions though. Good luck.

Seriously, if you have a solid drummer and your bass player turns the volume up, a second guitarist just gets in the way sometimes. Give it a shot, and at the worst, it's a battle of the bands gig; it's not the end of the world.
Experiment. Who gives a ****?

This. I actually hate playing with a second guitar, I just can't handle it. In original songs I don't want to have to worry if a bit I play will fit in with the other guitars part. For me it's either a keyboardist or a loud, thick-sounding bassist.
