I want to learn a clasical song for electric guitar with my friend. He's not very good (neither am I, really) so I want it to be pretty easy but still challenging and cool-sounding. Also I'd like one with harmonized parts.

Thanks for any recommendations. I listen to classical quite a bit but most songs I've been interested in learning have either been way to insane or just to simple, so something in between for me and my friend would be nice. Thanks!

Canon... in D?

*gets shot in both kneecaps and buried alive somewhere in deep Siberia*

... Err really, I don't know. I am not into classical that much. Why not try to take a song that you both like, and work on your own version of it.

Take Bob Dylan's Knocking On Heaven's Door for example. Me and our rhythm guitarist took that song, and used the vocal melody to come up with a duet.

Way to throw that in there genius, what movement you talking about?
The first movement is the most popular but it's slow paced and there isn't exactly much room for a duet there.

I think you're going for "Tocata and Fugue in D Minor" by J.S. Bach.

Well I'm sorry there archaon if I spoiled your perfect day with my suggestion, but maybe your next day will be better.

I'm talking about whatever 'movement' threadstarter should choose, maybe the first. It's fairly easy, as the threadstarter and his friends are relatively new to playing the guitar. One guy play the melody, the other the pickingpattern...

Moonlight Sonata is to easy and a bit...downbeat . I don't think Tocata and Fugue in Dm is right either. I have no idea what Zigeunerweisen is or who it's by, but it's not on UG. I'm gonna check out Beethoven's 6th right now. Thanks for the help and keep the recommendations coming.

Ahh, I like as well. Very nice piece. That might be good for us, of course I'll have to try it out cause the speed is kind of weird. Thanks for the piece.
