Aight, there's a busking competition in a town near me every year (http://www.buskfest.com/)

I went last year, made £40 (meh, i was there for 4hours), so yeh, last year an 8 year old kid won the "Best Guitarist Award", he was brutal I had my stagg and roland micro cube handy and basically, kicked ass.

But yeh, can you guys recommend me some songs to play this year at the buskfest?


Thanks

Btw, ill be using my trusty Jackson, bad horsie contour 2 Wahwah pedal and the micro cube.

EDITZZ

Songs that i have thought of

Patience - Guns N Roses
Voodoo Chile - Hendrix

Songs that have been taken into account from the PIT

You've Got To Hide Your Love Away - Beatles
"Even though I've found God, I still love blow jobs, and I still say fuck." - Dave Mustaine

You know, when you, like, you grab a woman's breast and it's... and you feel it and... it feels like a bag of sand when you're touching it.

Wow, 40 quid ain't bad at all!
I wish I could make that much just sitting out on the streets and playing.

Erm, try some popular Beatles songs, or maybe local songs?

Yeah, I've got some loose change to make this holiday as well.

I've got a nice big list of songs. My friend is playing guitar, I'm singing. Should be fun.

If it's busking shouldn't you be like playing acoustic songs?

Or take a contemporary pop song (as the Wombats would say) and do an acoustic cover of that...
#17
just the way im feeling by feeder and i think you got more chance if you do an acoustic song
#18
Deep Purple - Smoke On The Water
Guns 'N' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine
And if those don't impress...
... Carcass - Heartwork
