Can anyone recommend a song that rocks hard without making all the teachers (nuns included) go crazy. Me and my friend are thinking about La Grange (ZZ Top) and Whole Lotta Love (Led Zep). Thanks in advance.

Slayer- Raining Blood













OK, maybe not. I think you've got some good choices already...maybe some Van Halen?

Fade to Black is a pretty easy song, and I don't think the nuns would get too mad about that. Or Carry On My Wayward son, that works too.

I suggest : Far beyond the sun by yngwie malmsteen..

no, seriously , as you said, ZZ top songs would be cool, and not to difficult,
Smells like teen spirit by nirvana, (if you wanna be sure you wont make any mistakes tongue.gif )
I would personally choose "Down To Mexico" by Paul Gilbert, its a pretty easy song to play, and it sounds awesome biggrin.gif oh, and also maybe some metallica songs, like "Fade to black" or "one".


--------------------
"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"

I don't know how sensitive it is with nuns and lyrics but... "Whole lotta love" might be less a success when you come to "gonna give you every inch of my love" and they all faint. But hey, they pulled the plug on Hendrix too wink.gif
The entire song is adult rated rolleyes.gif

And La Grange is about a "Mens entertainment institution" in Texas so that might not fly either laugh.gif


You get the words, don't want to spell em out in the forum.

If you had a bass, you could Orion. That's a great song and you wouldn't have to have a singer.

Good idea, since it's great songs both of them. We played both in my band and we had trobles betting "whole lotta love" to actually sound any good. In all it's simplicity it takes something extra to get that groovy feeling.
La Grange was easier to play and it rocks too. Maybe just change a few words wink.gif
