Ok, here's the deal. I've been put down for a gig which occurs in less than two weeks time. The problem is that I need 3 songs to play. I've pretty much sorted out one of my own pieces, but I need 2 covers. I want to play 2 instrumental arrangements as I think this would work well in this context of the performance but I can't think of anything to play (except for perhaps Watermelon Man). I need help on what to play and where to find the tabs or notation for it. PLLLLLEEEAAASSSEEE!!!! My situation is dire.
My Gear:

Guitar: Fender Highway One Stratocaster
Bass: Fender Standard Jazz Bass
Amp: Vox AD40+
Amp 2: Stagg 60BA
Amp 3: Marshall MS-2
FX: Behringer Blues Overdrive

Listen to some Apocolyptica...they do covers of Metallica (and a bit of Tool) arranged for a string quartet. It'll give you an idea on how they've arranged the vocals for an instrumental.

But for a good, easy but great sounding instrumental for acoustic (if that's what you're into) try Is There Anybody Out There from the Wall.

Orion- Metallica
Dee- Ozzy, if you like the classical thing
Laguna Sunrise- Black Sabbath
Moby Dick- Led Zeppelin, if your drummer has the balls to try and do Bonham

EDIT: Oh, and Cissy Strut by the Meters is nice, John Mayer does it on occasion, it sounds really nice and has a good beat.
