Hey yall I'm in need of a song for a contest in November and I want to get a headstart as soon as possible. I've been playing since Christmas of 2005 and I have the skill of a person who can Classical Gas decently well but just can't seem to play it through without making a mistake. I prefer a classical song, but not just that genre. So if anyone has a song, please reply.

Playing for two years and still doing covers? For gods-sake, compose something on your own. Be original.

Edit: Nevermind. You've only been playing for roughly a year.

Instead of using Valves, could I use Light Bulbs instead? If so, would the new energy saving ones be OK? Coz I do a lot of playing

I got my pick stuck inside my guitar . . . . how am I supposed to get it out?

Remember I'm the only one playing, and the judges won't allow a rock group to be the composer of a song, hate to break it to you guys. But someone like Clapton or Emmanuel is perfectly fine.

Current Gear:

I'm learning Bouree right now, but it might not win me the competition (trust me, the competition isn't good, but bouree's not enough) Any other songs?

It's Easy And Sounds Good

It's supposed to be an Instrumental. If I wanted to play a sing along song I'd play Heartbeats by Jose Gonzalez.

I would try to play Mood for a day by yes (it's a classical composition written by Steve Howe) I guess this could give you some chance to win it.
Dreaming of freedom is easy to do
You have to fight and win but never lose.

Mood For A Day, alright I'll check that one else. Any other songs that are around this song's level of difficulty, other than Classical Gas?
