Ok, so here's the deal. For my 11th grade filmmaking class, we have to film a movie, and then create a soundtrack for the movie. We can't use anything that's been copyrighted because of infringment, but if we can play a cover of the music then it's acceptable. So I'm looking for a song that sounds good, no lyrics, and preferably something that isn't too insanely hard (Insanely hard being stuff along the lines of Eric Johnson or Dragonforce). I have the recording software Riffworks Standard, so I have a few basic drum beats. But yeah, I need to find something that would sound good behind a spy movie. A little something for the dramatic parts, some action parts, maybe some stuff for the brain-warping scenes. Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

Thanks, SoCalDirtDragon

i thought that Judas Priest's "Nostradamus" was pretty "dramatic" and the riffs don't sound insane...but for a spy movie not sure.

I know it sounds crazy, but try to learn to inhale your voice. www.thebelcantotechnique.com

dramatic? perhaps something a little different from a normal instrumental guitar track. as in perhaps just like a strat tone with tons of reverb playing around with a lydian for a mystical kind of thing. or just dome dead notes and harmonics for a suspence kinda thing?
