Hey everyone I have a band that just recently got together and I was just wondering if anyone had some ideas for good songs for an "intermediate" rock/metal band to play?
I already have Fade to Black and for Whom the Bell Tolls.
Thanks

it depends on the vocal range of your singer, but a GNR song would be good...maybe Welcome to the Jungle...When i was in a band, we covered that once in a while (although I hated singing it cause I can't sing that effing high dry.gif )

Enter Sandman is a very easy song, you guys could do Sweet Child O' Mine (but the solo is very advanced), also The Thing That Should Not Be has awesome riffs you guys might like.

Rock you like a Hurricane - Scorpians
ahh so many ideas, but its so hard when the genre is in question
Red Hot Chili Peppers or Rage Against the Machine has good intermediate stuff

Yeah I was thinking about Sweet Child O' Mine ( favorite GnR song) and I guess I should have made myself a bit more clear. I can play most advanced solos and riffs and so can the other guitarist we just cant play like Dragonforce and stuff like that.
