Ok, i need some help here to get 4 solo pieces (with maybe basic and simple accompaniment) but i've been having trouble getting songs to pass at excellence level, because i know i can. Im doing Level One NCEA (for those of you who dont know what that is its like New Zealand qualifications) in music. The pieces need to be contrasting, and i play both electric and acoustic guitar. Below is the list of rules and specifications that it needs to reach for the level I am aiming at. If you llok, its not that hard, but it is to find 4 perfect yet contrasting songs.

1. Perform contrasting pieces of music as a featured soloist in front of an audience.
2. If performs as part of duo or small group then mustbe easily seen and heard and has a separate identifyable part.
3. Performance should demonstrate evidence of technique,accuracy, musicianship and presentation.
4. May choose to have an accompanist but accompanist is not assessed.
5. Approximately Three minutes in duration.

To Achieve at Excellence level:

Electric Guitar:
Generally More fluent and faster.
More Complex Chords, (jazz chords, 9ths and 11ths)
Open stings in high-up chords
Runs- in with the chords (chord and lead sound together)
Slurs and slides in with chords.
Syncopations and Funk.
Fingerpicking; Tonal variations, syncopation, lead figures in between fingerpicking.
Vibrato
Combinations- a number of techniques all on one pick
Whole tone bends
barre chords without hesitation.


I can play at this level, its just finding a good song to suit, im open to anything, and i also sing. My vocal range is average low, but i can sing high when abso lutely needed. ( this is because i dont like my high voice, so i dont use it often)


Help a girl out and give me some ideas, all is greatly appreciated.

Are there any other members of Lynyrd Skynyrd who are dead?
