Ok our school is doing its annual Music cup, where people who play the same instruments play infront of a judge. They pick a song and play it. Now, i have NO idea what to play, and its in march and I want to win it. It has to be under 5 minutes.

I was thinking:

Hangar 18-Megadeth
Detonation/Anthem/Tread the floods (obviously only one of them) by Trivium
and then...I thought I would turn to you guys for advice.

I need to put down my name by the end of the week, so I need something good. No two people can play the same song, so that rules out: Stairway By Led Zeppelin, One by Metallica, an Under the Bridge by RHCP

Suggestions?

Cheers UGers

Isnt Hangar 18 longer than 5 minutes? Anyway, I would say try to play something that a lot of people would know, yet is still metal-ish. Maybe Bark at the Moon or Crazy Train. Anthem would be a good choice too. Possibly a Metallica song... I dunno.

no boundaries - speed kills by michael angelo batio
if you can pull it off i dont think they stand a chance

oh yeah if you have guitar pro, get the 2nd version of the guitar pro tab. its way more accurate
#7
you want something noticable, but intricate, so I would say you enjoy myself by Phish, just cut out the weird verse
#8
Do who knows by hendrix... everyone will love you, just cut the improv down.

we play along to a cd...


EDIT: Sorry for double post! I've narrowed it down to:

Crazy Train-I don't know wether I can learn it by then
One of the Triviums-The reason is they have flashy solos that I can already play properly, and I also remembered, what about Entrance of the Conflagration?

Go with either of those.

Crazy Train would open up alot of improvising if you're into that though.

i take it that means you're saying that it isnt hard.
well, its not as hard as a lot of other stuff, but its impressive if you can get it right and lots of people know it.

maybe try something by van halen?

everyone in the damn school is going to play eruption, plus if the judges are half-decent, he wouldn't have a shot in hell of winning, it's not a hard song.

If you have a 7 string guitar sadness will sear is a good song by trivium with some impressive sweeps in it.

How about a cover of While My Guitar Gently Weeps?

Or My Guitar Wants to Kill your Mama (preferably the G3 version cause it's more guitar oriented).

Ok, so you don't think you can learn Crazy Train in a few months but you can play the solo to Tread The Floods which is far harder than the solo to Crazy Train .... ? ? ?

I don't understand that.

You know, I never thought about that. I just automatically jumped to the conclusion that becuase crazy train is more popular and hyped up its harder. Cheers for helping me realise that. But what I want is something that looks and sounds really technical and impressive, and thats interesting. PLOP
