My freshman talent show is coming up in about a month. I am skeptical as if I should play in it or not. As far as I know, there is one, 3 person band playing. They are going to do some shitty green day song or something. I really would like to play Fade to Black but I have a few problems.

1. If I did play, it would only be me and my friend ( if he would do it.)
2. I only have a shitty 10 watt amp, but they could put a microphone to it.
3. Its in a month, and I have a lot of work to do on the solo, but Im sure if I tried hard enough, I could pull it off.

Do you think its worth it?? How good would only two guitarist sound on that song?? Would you do it??

It would sound bad. Especially with the amp.

Hit this once or twice, and you'll be twice as nice.

if you could borrow an amp from someone, i say go for it
'89 MIJ Fender Strat
Rivera S-120
'60s PEPCO Model 211 5w head
'60s Paul (Pepco) 1x12 tube amp
'60s Harmony H303a 1x10 tube amp

^ Agreed to walkinbazooka.

If you want to do something, go acoustic, it'll sound better and besides, dumb people go crazy for bands whether they are good or not, they won;t be hearing you play as much as they will be asking "where's the rest of the band"

Are you singing it or not? I also thought it would be wicked bad ass if someone played "New Noise" (Refused) In a talent show.

hell no, Im not a singer.

And I am suprised everyone thinks just 2 guitars would sound bad. I play that song with my brother and I think it sounds fine with just 2 guitars. I would like to do it, but I guess it just wont work out.

Man, don't let a couple of pessimists on UG make you pass up a chance to preform and have some fun! Keep in mind that not everyone is a guitarist, so depending on how you do the song, it could be boring in parts. As for your amp, I would recommend borrowing one from a friend, or possibly renting one?

If that's not an option, maybe get it all rigged up in the place you're going to be playing a while before the actual date to see what it sounds like mic'd and stuff. Get out there and have some fun

If there isn't going to be any singer, then don't bother.

do it acoustic, i have a feeling it would sound better. If you could pull off the solo an electric acoustic would do nicely, using the distortion for the end of the song. Your friend could play the rest softly with distortion then play rhthym during the solo.
Kind of like nothing else matters on S&M

I have a backing track that could be played while we do the guitar parts . Would that sound good? It has the drums and bass. The only thing that would be missing is a singer, which I dont want.

That would be awesome. That song pumps me up.

But to stay on topic I say you should rent or borrow an amp. Other than that I say go for it.
