Hey i need some advice I'm not sure if this is the right section sorry if it isn't.
In my music class we had to make a group, the group we ended up making was three guitarist sad.gif , We don't know what song we should play and if it would sound good. We tried Layla Unplugged it sounds ok we might do that but we need another song to do. What do you guys think would be a good song that isn't too hard and would sound good with three guitarists.

thanks,

When I was in my first year at music college we had an ensemble group with 3 guitarists, and we played a small show in the cafeteria one dinnertime, we played a few songs that sounded really good with 3 guitarists, the first was The Wicker Man by Iron Maiden, then we did The One & Only by Chesney Hawkes and finally we did Like An Angel by Malmsteen! All 3 songs allowed us to use dual harmony and sounded pretty good!! Also maybe try something by bands who although might not have 3 guitarists still use a lot of dual leads, for example Wishbone Ash or Judas Priest. Brave New World would work too wink.gif killer song!!

Well you can use existing songs and make them for 3 guitars smile.gif Like you said , one can play chords, other can play fingerpicking same chords on other position...and third can play some licks smile.gif You can do that with a lot of songs, and can sound very interesting..

Something by Crosby, Stills and Nash would be good as well. Some great harmonies.

Something with a heavy rhythm component to it that you could double or triple up?

Early to mid 90's, Ministry's live configuration had 3-4 guitars going at one time.

Extreme-more than words

it is with two guitars in the original,but 3rd would not be a problem just to play main progression,the problem is singing,but if you haw time to practice,you will do ok .

I used to be in a Rockband class a few years ago and we always had three guitarists up playing we did such songs: Whole Lotta Love, Rock n Roll, The Ocean ( Led Zeppelin ) Come together ( Beatles ) Santaria ( Sublime ) Purple Haze, Foxy Lady ( Jimi Hendrix ) Sweet Child O Mine ( Guns n Roses ) Lots of BB King stuff and Blues
What we did is we all played a solo each, 2 people palyed rythm and 1 person did lead licks and stuff.
I'm pretty sure any song will work you all just have to work together and stay on beat.

Just make sure you play in unison and not confront notes from chords while you play. Rhythm guitars should play different arrangements on the neck but notes that will sound good together. On guitar should be for lead - licks, fills and solos.
