that makes me ask, are you going to even sing at all? if not, then u wouldn want a song thats has verses and choruses of just chords, or sumin too repetative
if u can sing, that opens a lot of doors

my point exactly. if you were really good you play some opeth.

benighted is a fantastic song, i love playing that (without singing)

whats the most difficult song you know?

could you just play something you've written? i'd do that

Come Alive by the Foo Fighters would be pretty cool played with just an acoustic. It's catchy as well so the audience would probably enjoy it.

Playing a concert, or in front of any audience, id go with some of your own material. why? because you know how it should sound and you know how to play it btter than anything else
