My band has our first gig on saturday and we don't really know what will work the best for song order.
Here are the songs

Dani California-Rhcp
1979-Smashing Pumpkins(just instrumental for now, since we just got a new singer)
Woman-Wolfmother
Beverly Hills-Weezer
Fat Lip-Sum 41 (pretty sloppy, this is just here to keep the crowd going so i dont want to open or close with it because of its fairly poor quality)

We also might include an instrumental jam over some song/chord progression. Im not too sure about this, though. Advice?
You can put these in any order and thanks for the feedback.

i'd say start with Dani California, end with Woman and do your instrumental jam within Woman. just make sure you end by going back and doing the chorus again.. if oyu know what i mean.

Do you like heavy rock/punk? Try "New Noise" from Refused. One of the best songs to open a show with. It's really heavy, really easy to play, but a total crowd pleaser, even if they don't know the band.

So, if I were you, my set list would go...

"New Noise" - Refused
"Rat in a Cage" - Smashing Pumpkins (another easy song to learn quickly)
"Woman" - Wolfmother
"Fat Lip" - Sum 41
"Dani California" - RHCP
An original... if you have any.

We tried that but it just couldn't work out so we have just one guitar solo.


We always warm up by playing thunderhorse (dethklok) just for fun. I'd like to see all their faces if we opened with that

I would get rid of any song that you feel is sloppy.
I was once heavily prominent on these forums from 2004-2007, let's see how long I can stay now that I'm back.

Damn it. Haha, I got it off Lime wire and that was the name it was under. Although, something did seem weird about "Rat in a Cage".

here's what I'd recommend based on you saying you want it in a down-tuned LP for Death Metal and Grindcore (idk what that is but its probably heavy):

CAUGHT ME!! -----But can you sweep?
I can't actually sweep, so I just play riffs around triads for those parts. We seriously do know the rest though. Its really easy.

I think we will stick with fat lip, cause only one parts is really sloppy.

We cant play bullet with butterfly wings cause our singer hates it


Edit: nevermind, kavatica. Judging from your band, im just gonna guess u can sweep

haha, i get down a little bit with the sweeps...but i'm not too crazy. i figured you could play most of the song except for the sweeps. that is one of the easier songs from the metalocalypse....and i think you should play it at the show....cause that would be amazing...and just do whatever you do during that part. Also i would definantly keep fat lip...even if one part is a little sloppy, that song is usually a favorite for anybody in that style of music. make sure you get back on here and let us know how your show went!!!

P.S. +1 for fessing up!
