Ok guys
I'm playing One during a concert in April.
Because everyone in the band has to do a solo piece, I picked One.
The whole song is about 8 minutes which is way too long.
Any ideas on how to shorten it (besides cutting the repeat in the verses)
I want to leave the solos in too.
I also need to end it "musically" as my teacher put it.
The machine gunned chord at the end just isn't that great of an ending note. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thank you very much guys

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

get the S&M orchestra to play it with you
Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: "Mankind". Basically, it's made up of two separate words - "mank" and "ind". What do these words mean ? It's a mystery, and that's why mankind is.

I think you should keep the machine gun ending. You should tell your teacher that particular movement in the song (when the second part of the song starts) is a very tense movement representing the inner termoil that the person would feel in the situation and the sudden ending brings the stress to a peak and that cuts out, leaving a cliff-hanger of sorts.

It's a load of bull but he'll probably fall for it.
