I am a junior in highschool and we are having a talent show in about a month. I played in a talent my freshman year and I played fade to black by myself and did very well. I want a solo guitar piece to play this year. I was thinking about cliffs of dover because everyone knows that song from guitar hero but I might have a hard time learning that in time for auditions in 1 month. What are some other good, not insanely hard songs I could play?

WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.

Yea, Satriani wouldnt be bad. i did a talent show last year at my school, me and the previous drummer in my band, and we just did an all-out made up solo (we planned of course) but if it was me i would mix in stuff from eruption, and just MAKE a solo. a lot more origional.

yeah surfing with alien wouldnt be bad either or u could the devil's slide (unless you go to a cathoilic school lol). eruption would be a good choice but it is used way to much in talent shows.

you could play "Bron Yr Aur" by Jimmy Page, although you would need an acoustic guitar and i don't know if that's your style. i performed "Since I've Been Loving You" along with a backing track i go off the internet, maybe that could be an option?

Just go play some simple scales. Improv something. The high school I went to once had a talent show where some kid go up on stage playing an Epi Les Paul 100 (the one w/the bolt-on neck) and he just played some random scales, notes, and the occasional chord......he took second place. While I was just sitting there like this

and you may ask why I didnt enter the show...I have the worst stage fright of anyone. I can guarantee that there isnt another user of this site that has the same level of stage fright that I have.
back on topic
either do a little improv deal or go with something off of Buckethead's "electric tears" album.
