Alrighty, the band I'm in right now was doing a selection of classic rock covers. When I joined, the setlist was this: Paint it Black- The Rolling Stones Let It Be- The Beatles Crazy On You- Heart Shook Me All Night Long- Ac/Dc Baba O'Reilly- The Who The End- The Beatles Can't Touch This- MC Hammer And two untitled originals. Our band is: Lead Gtr. - Evan Rhythm Gtr - Matt Vocalist - Syd Me (bass) Drummer - Graham Ok, now Evan leaves for university this weekend, so he's out of the band. Matt will then take over lead, and we've got a guy named Luke coming in to take over rhythm guitar. I replaced their original bassist recently, and I only know the basslines to Baba O'Reilly, The End, Paint It Black, and Shook Me All Night Long. The new rhythm guitarist (Luke) is apparently pretty good and does a fair Tom Morello. Because of the loss of Evan and the old bassist (also named Matt) and their replacements (Luke and myself), any original music is going to sound very different, and because our styles are so different than those of the people we're replacing, Matt and I have discussed tossing out everything but The End and Crazy On You (I can fake my way through this one until I come up with a bassline that'll serve well). Both of us are entirely and totally in favour of this, since we really aren't losing anything. Classic rock covers aren't exactly my bag, or Graham's, Matt's, or Luke's. Oh, and Can't Touch This was never actually tightened up enough to play live anyway. I know Graham'll be all for it too. What I need from you fine ladies and fellows at TB are suggestions for new covers! Rock isn't out of the question at all, but we're no longer limited to classic rock, and Graham and I are chomping at the bit to branch out some. The originals have a kind of prog sound, so I was listening to a lot of Rush earlier. They definitely sounded like a nice way to bridge the gap between the covers we WERE doing and the originals they wrote before I got there. One problem is that Rush songs are, quite simply put, often really freakin' hard. What I'm asking of y'all is for some of the...less insanity-inducing Rush songs, and other similar tunes that I could propose to the band. Any and all help will be very much appreciated!
