...For a talent show. In march or april.

I would like a somewhat complicated song at or under 5 minutes. I'm asking this early so I can have plenty of time to work on it, since I need to amp up my guitar skills.

I have a 7 string guitar, so that can be incorporated. I'm thinking a song perhaps by Protest The Hero, Dream Theater, Joe Satriani, Nevermore, or writing my own song.

You guys can recommend me anything, I'll take it into consideration. Last year I played a crappy version of Master of Puppets and I won first place. So I'm not worried about losing if I don't play something everybody knows.

Acid Rain by Liquid Tension Experiment is 7-string. Listen to it on Youtube.

If you want to be a jerk, A Change of Seasons by Dream Theater is 24 minutes (I think), and 7-string.

Edit: Just read your OP carefully.

Acid Rain is 6:36. Just a minute out, so maybe you can still consider it if it's at your level.

I can see ahead of time if I can do a song that's at 6 minutes or so, but I'd like to have a 5 minute or shorter song ready as well just in case they don't let me do it. Even though it's not like they'd stop me up there

west side boogie - shawn lane
you can improvise the solos if they are too difficult, but the riff is catchy and a bit easier to listen to than classical music, which a judge might appreciate. of course you have to start practicing now
