I have only been playing for about a month and a half, and I might have a show in about a month. I wrote a few good songs, but what would be some good covers for show starters? Thanks

Rock, Punk and an acoustic song I wrote. I live in a small town and if I do punk first I am going to get kicked off stage, so I have to save that one for last.

I suggest "Down down" By status quo, as that will get the gig in motion.

Also fairly straightforward.

Well at the moment only one guitarist, me, thanks for all the help. What about encore songs? Only one guitarist, and we are a little noobish, suggestions?

Rather be Dead is fk easy to play.

Do some straightforward Rise Against songs like Anywhere But Here, Give it All. . .I dunno, I'm sure you'll think of a suitable song. Have you learnt many songs together already?

Good luck anyhow.

If you only have one guitarist, rw-write the parts to fit.
I play and sing and I'm lead. One guitar isn't noob-ish. It is just limiting. We still play Free Bird. You just have to step up. I re-write the parts so it still sounds good. Or I just work my ass off(usually both).
