I have been playing guitar for about a year and on chirstmas my whole family will be together and they want me to play for them. I was wondering what I should play for them. I was thinking of playing a few christmas songs and maybe making an instrumental song of my own. What do you think?

I play the most brutal metal possible so they hate it and just want me to turn it off but can't tell I suck :p

yeah, crank your distortion and turn your amp way up and play some black metal or an extremely metalfied version of like jingle bells or sumthin

Play a metal version of silent night
Did you know the odds of a Vault-Tec shelter failing are 1,763,497 to 1?

So imagine life in a Vault-Tec Vault. Not just a future.
A brighter future... underground.

If you play something they might like to listen to theyre more apt to help you out with futire purchases. I know my mother likes me to play babe Im gonna leave you. Bought the only mellow thing I know. But I got her to listen to some black sabbath recently.

Stairway. It's the ultimate "you don't know anything about guitar so I'll just play this song for you over and over again until you faint" song.

Or you could try Canon Rock. Everybody loves that song =p
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.

Every opportunity to play in front of people is important.

I recommend hunting down some Christmas music.

Do NOT play the Who's "Behind Blue Eyes."

Killing in the Name

then slowly build into the 'f*ck you i wont do what you tell me' verse. tell them how you really feel, they'll love it

I am doing the exact same thing you are! I am gonna play "Welcome To The Jungle" by, GNR (Who doesn't know that?) Because my Mom loves that song. And I am gonna play "Sweet Child O' Mine" by, GNR (Of course...) And then I will probably just jam with my Uncle, and Great Grandpa (And yes that is my Grandpa's dad!!!) They play on Gibson Les Paul Standards, or classics, And I have an Epi LP Custom. Should be interesting.

Play Twisted Sister's Version of "O Come All Ye Faithful." Although playing of O Come All Ye Faithful may induce some stripper-esque behaivor, which would be odd coming from a strictly family performance situation.

What family wouldn't be excited over the holiday reworking of the thrash metal classic raining blood? What else says cheer like Tom Araya shouting at your about the ****ing snowflakes on the ground?


And yes, that is fixed (for those of you out there that couldn't tell).

If you have a lot of uncles in their 30's or 40's, heck even 50's, just play some Metallica, Maiden, Ozzy (etc...) riffs.

search Misc Christmas and learn Jingle bells for starters. that'll make them tinkle in their diapers. Then kick it off with duncan hills coffee BECAUSE IT WILL BE METAL XMAS AND EVERYONE WANTS THERE COFFEE.
