I have to give a 7-10 min demonstration speech, and i choose to demostrate how to play the guitar. I plan on going over the basics (types of picking, hammer-ons, pull-offs) and a few chords. I'm also going last, so i might be able to play a song, but i want to use the chords i demostrated. Idk what chords i'm gonna show, probably major/minor chords.

Any Idea's on what song i should play? I have a dean mlxl (mlx just left handed) and play almost anything rock or metal.

Thanks!

no, play something that doesn't make it seem like a concert... you don't want your classmate yelling "FREEBIRD!" in the middle of everything.

Californiation, or maybe something by Blue Rodeo...

Playing Freebird would take up the entirity of the speech and then some if you play the origional version... over 12 and a half minutes.
