My schools talent show is coming up in a couple of months. I am looking for a song to play for it.


Im looking for a song that has some simpler sweep picking in it, because i have only been learning it for a couple of months, and i only know a few patterns right now. It also cant be really heavy metal( even tho i wish it could), because my school is a bunch of rap loving mofos. I dont want it to be too difficult, because this is my first time playing infront of an audience, and im expecting the worst.

Edit: Does it have to have sweep picking in it? YES, im using this song to kill 2 birds with one stone. Im using it for the talent show, and it will be the first song that i have ever learned with sweep picking in it.

Any suggestions?
