    I am in a bassist in a band full of seniors in high school. (this probably isn't the best place to post this :meh:) me and the rest of them (the band) are graduating soon. We want to play during our graduation ceremony, but we can't find a song that meets the criteria, please help suggest a song.

    The Criteria-

    *Appropriate (no swearing, racial terms, vulgar meanings ect.)

    *Metal or Hard Rock genre (no country or jazz just Metal or Hard rock)

    *THE HARDEST PART TO MEET: Inspirational (has to leave the audience with a "Good" message to remember us by)

    any help would be appreciated.

  9. I'll assure you theres a really good singer in your school. Go to your music department or just spread the word that a singer is needed. Then sit down and wood shed ideas about the pluses that school offered to all of you, put it together with a beat your drum knows very well. Find the correct key for your vocalist and see if you can write some chords out that are interesting as opposed to a base crap progression. Possiblly adding a minor chord???? If you have plans to be a musician on any level your gonna need to be able to wood shed ideas even a cover band needs to show artistry. Try it!!! Doc.

  12. Hi.


    If the teachers mind, they must be really, really uptight.

    I won't even comment the "no singer" part :confused:.

    ^Or this.

    Thanks for the reminder as well, I'm still waiting my last bands guitarists brother to hand me over the 1'5 l of DrPrpper he lost on a bet. He really thought it was a Mötley Crüe tune, enough to make a bet :D.

    Whaaaaat??? So this "performance" is basically jamming to a CD at your graduation ceremony?
    Why not just go all the way and "Ashlee Simpson/Milli Vanilli" the the instruments too? :D

    thanks everybody, we went with Wish You Were Here by Incubus. Schools Out by Alice Cooper, believe it or not, was not approved even with substitute lyric changes i made within the song. (yeah our principals ARE that snooty)

    Really wish our first song was approved. but oh well
  15. How did you plan on changing the lyrics if you do not have a singer and were just going to play along with the cd?
