My band is playing a gig and were trying to think of some new songs to learn we've got 10 down right now.
But were planning on playing:
-Sweet Home Alabama
-Schools Out
-Wish You Were Here
for this show. And we need a couple. Something that gets the crowd going, any suggestions?
Some songs I've been thinking about doing are: Any Way You Want It, Black Dog, I Like To Rock, some ACDC, or Def Leppard
Gibson Les Paul Standard
Fender American 52 Telecaster RI
Fender American Standard Stratocaster
Tanglewood Acoustic

Back in Black is always a crow pleaser.

The final Countdown FTW!

More than a feelings always fun if you can pull of the vocals.

Photograh is a great def leppard song.

Rude Mood. That's a foot tapper. You can't go wrong with Whole Lotta Love or Black Dog, either.

Stevie Ray Vaughn ftw! And Whole Lotta Love and Black Dog are simple, sorta, but awesome songs.

Rude Mood is a beast of a song. Probably the hardest 12 bar blues riff to nail perfectly.

Dream On - Aerosmith

If your singer can't reach high enough then don't, it'll just sound stupid.

I second Whole Lotta Love.

Not sure who its originally by but Hard to Handle would be fun.

Crossroads is a classic blues standard and you can bust out some mad improv solos.

Do you write your own?

Yah we have 3 originals and 3 that are close to being finished.


But so far im thinking about doing pride and joy, seeing as not many would know rude mood, which is sad haha. And Black Dog would be good too. Any more?

Well, in the case of my dad's band, you don't.

And if you can't find a sax player, a harmonica will work just as well. (also my dad's band)
