My friend wanted to play a song in our schools talent show. I was wondering what are some good songs to play that aren't to hard.

There are quite a few that qualify. Play a song that you already like.
You do listen to music, right?

this is a kind of question that you must look deep down inside and ask yourself because only you know what is the meaning of easy. and only you know what yo u can play and what you can't. and if u just want to play something popular, then go look at the featured tabs list on the front page or somehting

For ****'s sake.

There is one of these exact same threads at least once a ****ing week. Will you people learn how to use the search bar already?

"lol gaiz we r dooing a tallent sh0w, wat songz shud we plai?"

Think for yourselves. What songs do you like? What styles do you like?

THINK.
#14
Teenagers-MCR. It's pretty easy but the solo might give him some problems if he's that new to guitar. Just replace sh*t with hell or heck and there you go.

I'm hot for teacher is one of the most popular talent show songs, for obvious reasons. I don't know, my friends and I are having the same problem, we're thinking either, Pearl Jam- Yellow Ledbetter, or Lateralus by Tool.
I've got a bike you can ride it if you like
#17
play some chevelle, it's pretty easy and most people would recognize it and probably like it

try "the red", "the clincher", "vitamin R", or "well enough alone"

edit: don't play nirvana or MCR...it won't end well

easy song played well + good show >>>> difficult song played ok + no show

In most cases.

Most people tend to play Nirvana and AC/DC at these things, but I would suggest playing something you like, and that you actually want to play and share with everyone because it's a great song, not because you want to win so bad and try to look cool on stage.

The way to win a talent show is easy. Ill break it down into 4 easy steps.

Step 1: Acquire lots of effects pedals.

Step 2: Take a **** ton of acid and get on stage.

Step 3: Make noise.

Step 4: Win contest.

depends on what style of music you like playing. but if i were a judge and someone played acoustic under the bridge just up on a stool. singing or not, with all the little tweaks and such that john adds, then i would def give my vote to them. its not to hard to do either. good luck

any connection with the song 'rape me' by nirvana?


NFB - Anthrax, its an acoustic ballad accompanied by an electrtic solo, there are certain lines in the song where if emphasized correctly (via vocal harmonizing), can turn out to be quite amusing
#26
When in doubt, play Eruption.

Don't you listen to music? Surely there are some songs that you like and that you think would be good to play.

Dude seriously, play Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins. You will undoubtedly win the talent show, and everyone will give you mad props. The solo takes a bit of skill though, not too much, but a bit.

1. Play something by Marduk.

2. ???
