Hi!
We are just creating our band, and we have the singer, that plays the bass, two guitarrist (one rythm guitar, and other one more for the solos, thats me..:P), and a drummer. All of us are a bit new with this instruments, but we will play for fun. We like things like rock, but not really hard... we also like grunge, punk, and more relax things.

The big deal is that we need to find nice songs to play, but it is too difficult to find songs with what we really want: A nice and not impossible solo, or at least to have a solo, two guitars, bass, and something fun for the both guitarrists... the problem is that sometimes we find songs, and they don't have all this things. Please we need help to choose songs, I thought it was easier, but it isn't..

Thanks for the help


pd: sorry for my english level, I'm not native speaker..

that is just what I want to play, and I've been practicing song from gnr, acdc, but I will search more for rolling stones and the clash, maybe that may help..

Thanks for your help... any other suggestions, maybe naming songs, because I know this are the best bands to choose, but they have thousands of songs... any help is accepted and we will be thankful

Thanks jazz_croatia

Best songs you ask? Crowd pleasers you ask (well not really)?

the Clash - Rock th Casbah, Should I Stay or Should I Go, White Riot
the Rolling Stones - I can't get no Satisfaction, Jumpin' Jack Flash, Brown Sugar
ZZ Top - Tush, La Grange, Gimme all your Lovin'
AC/DC - Highway to Hell, Back in Black, It's a long way to the top, Hells Bells
Guns n' Roses - Night Train, Welcome to the jungle
Metallica - For Whom The Bell Tolls (overused and overplayed in my opinion), Whiskey in the Jar, Seek and Destroy (without the solo)

Here you go mate.
