Sunshine of your Love - Cream

Everyone knows that song. It's fairly easy, tought the main riff may be tricky at the start as you have to mute one of the strings in the chord.

Play Binge and Grab, the Deli Creeps version so you can sing and whatever.

Have a good time with those solos.

Stream of Consciousness by Dream Theater. JK how about Black Dog by Led Zep or some older Green Day stuff from Dookie?

Nirvana would be easy. I dont think Seven Years by Saosin is too hard, and can be played in Drop D pretty well. Even if you dont have a screamer, if you can sing well, it should work.
#8
play your own song(s), personally i hate when my school has a talent show or something and all the bands just cover other peoples music.

I can learn most of the songs in a week. Just practice a LOT every day and you'll be able to do it. In place of black dog (because of your singer) I reccomend Nothing Else Matters by Metallica. Also, if your show is in a week, how are you going to play a concert? If you're going to be playing only one song, why call it a concert? If you are playing atleast 6 songs, its a bit late to be asking us for song choosing assistance. For a one song show, I reccomend Nothing Else Matters.

Whatsername by Green Day is extremely easy, and not too many people have heard it so you can sorta go where you want to with it. My vocal range is in that same area and I got it down pretty well in about two hours. (I had rhythm and vocals)

Don't play punk. Improvise a lot. Be Dream Theater.

Talk Dirty to Me


I was just talking to a friend about a bunch of guys I knew who played this song a few years back. Everyone hated it, the DJ cut them out halfway through. Epic fail. It was hilarious. That should say you shouldn't choose this song.

There was a band that played funk kind of stuff, mostly just random jamming on stage. Sounded decent, everyone goes for this stuff more. Need a guitarist that can improvise well, obviously.

Epic failure is right. Damn, that sure does suck for them. I kinda like that song too. Were they good and playing the song right? or did they just hate it?

Well I'm assuming you're looking at a younger crowd of people. Many of them might not even know the song, and/or hate it. A lot of the stuff listed before would work out well.

Black Sabbath has some good stuff. Iron Man, NIB, Paranoid, War Pigs. Solos are tricky to down right insane on some songs, but those are fun songs to play. Cream is also good, but some solos are tough. What you play is what the group can play the best.

smells like teen spirit...every1 loves it. Solo is rediculously easy and theres only 8 power chords and the rest of it is just 2 notes played over and over again. Just for the love of god dont get your singer to try and sound like kurt.

Play lots of popular, well-known bands' music, but they're not-popular material. For example:

"Only of You" - Green Day
"Touchdown Boy" - Blink 182
"Our Lady of Sorrows" - My Chemical Romance
"Maybe Memories" - The Used
etc.

Oh. And if you'll reconsider the death metal thing, you should cover "Nine in the Afternoon" by Panic at the Disco death metal style.

just do a 25 minute long free jazz exploration. helps if yr really, really stoned first.

but honestly if you need to ask what to play then you guys have no business being on a stage. how can you be a band with no material, not songs you all know or anything?

just have each of ya pick 2 songs you wanna do, learn em and play them. thats it.
#39
when my band played it's first show we played 3 of our songs the following cover songs:

my brain is hanging upside down - ramones
polly-nirvana
jesus doesn't want me for a sunbeam"-nirvana
california sun- rancid
highway to hell - ac/dc
you shook me all night long - ac/dc
paranoid - black sabbath
molly's lips - nirvana

try to do stuff everyone can sing along to and keep it simple. u can learn any of these songs in a day. even a crappy band can get one of these songs down in one or two practices so go for it!

For some reason this greatly amused me and for some reason I'm also going to sig it as it's valuable advice!

Anyway just play what you all like, don't ask US what YOU want to play.
Anyone will think you're good as they can't play, for some reason when people can't play music and they look at people they know playing music they go nuts.

But as a suggestion: Scarified - Racer X
I've been playing two and a half years and can play it so you may be able to!
