I'm going to be playing at a local talent show(CASH PRIZES ) But it will just be me and a drummer, I was thinking either "I'm alright" by neil zaza, or "The Extremist" by satch, do you guys have any suggestions other than these two, and i have until oct 6 to learn it, and nothing with dive bombs in it, I'll be using a friends schecter, without a floyd

They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

Don't dress as a whore, he'll thump you.

He said it doesn't have a Floyd.

I have trained a live tarantula to calm and sit on my guitar due to the awesome powers of my rocking. When I am not playing it angrily bounces about my room hitting everything that isn't me.

Something from guitar hero because people will actually KNOW those songs.
Know your audience. Do you think they want a brutal death metal song, a soft acoustic song or a bluesy solo kind of song?

Cliffs Of Dover. It's a great song, no floyd wankage, and everyone knows it.


I think it would wow the judges for sure.

This. You might not think it's a good idea but at least everyone will know it, whatever it is.

Am I detecting a hint of Eruption in your voice sir?


And Cliffs of Dover is a very hard song to nail. For a talent show, mistakes are your worst enemy, you want to be comfortable playing what you're playing and be able to pull it off with feeling, rather than just trying to survive a shred solo or something similar.

And singer-songwriter style performances usually win music talent shows. The only judges that will score shred well are the ones who have played guitar and appreciate it, because it isn't exactly 'nice' to a non-guitar lover's ears. So even if you can try to sing and play, that is impressive.

Or, write a quick blues song about how much you love your baby, sing 2 verses, and solo in pentatonic for the rest of it. People love that and it's easy. Just close your eyes and make a weird face, but not creepy like a rapist, during a bend. And milk that bend. There you go, set!
