GCSE solo performance and I have no idea ;-; - September 16th 2014, 06:40 PM

Hey. Basically a have to do a solo performance for gcse soon. I can't find a song and it is so frustrating!!!!!!

I thought I found a song it was going well and then nope there where parts I can't play.
Oh yeah I play guitar by the way. I can play fairly simply, but I'm not great.
So I need to find an easyish song which isn't to simple for me to learn.
I also like pop punk bands (I would prefer to do a song I like but right now I don't think I care either way)

Also I can't play good riddance by green day it comes up on every search I do to try and find songs.

If you have any ideas please let me know, because its really frustrating me and not to mention just making me feel like my guitar souls are terrible ;-;


I wanna be alive well don't you? There's no use in feeling low.

So I did GCSE music, and I tried to find a piece that I could play and sounded difficult. I ended up making mistakes with timing and stuff because I tried to make it sound good while my friend who went for a simple piece (grade 4 standard) got an A* for her solo performance because she played it perfectly.

If you found a simple blues rhythm then you could do something like that, or even a classical piece. People said AC/DC is quite good to play, sweet child of mine too. If you could play a bit of a song you know then add some improvisation and write that in the score you will get LOADS of marks, they love improv!

Hope I helped a little bit, good luck with the ensemble (that was difficult)

I don't know much about guitar playing but could you look up some acoustic classics - Oasis or The Beatles??
