Hey, guys. Friday, I am trying out for a band thats going to be on warped tour for two or three weeks. Can you guys recommend some nice progressive/alternative rock tunes to listen to for some inspiration. I am more of a metal player so this is kinda unfamiliar to me. I need some songs with some technical solos because I'm trying out for the lead guitar. Your help is greatly appreciated!

Tool, Devin Townsend, Radiohead, Converge (their more alt tunes), The Fall of Troy, Thrice, Muse, Circa Surive, Coheed and Cambria, Protest the Hero and Deftones are all the bands i could think of right now.

BTW, what band is it?

you're trying out for a full time band and asking for advice from ultimate-guitar? if you havent noticed, it is pretty much 17 year old guitar noobs on here, so you might be better off using what you already know.

if you dont feel confident trying out, you're probably not gonna make it
It's all about feel
