    Default Musicians - Easy cover songs

    My band is doing our first headlining gig in a few weeks and we need about another 20 minutes or so of material. What are some easy cover songs to learn? This is what we're doing currently as far as cover songs:

    1. Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones
    2. Rockin In The Free World - Neil Young
    3. Innocent - Fuel
    4. Wicked Game - Chris Isack
    5. Symphony Of Destruction - Megadeth
    6. Another Brick In The Wall - Pink Floyd
    7. Would - Alice In Chains
    8. What If - Creed
    9. Sunshine Of Your Love - Cream

    Any input that you musicians can give me would be much appreciated. 8^)

    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Roy Orbison
    Bill Haley & The Comets
    Buddy Holly


    Look up The Marshall Tucker Band and a song called "Walk Outside The Line"
    AWESOME way to start a set...it's all about getting off a 5 and hitting the bar.

    From a drummer's perspective:
    Zeppelin - Communication Breakdown, Heartbreaker, Since I've Benn Loving You, The Ocean
    AC/DC - The Jack, Highway to Hell, Back in Black, You Shook Me All Night Long
    Van Halen - RWTD, ATBL
    Scorpions - The Zoo, No One Like You
    Mountain - Mississippi Queen
    Montrose - Rock Candy

    If I can play 'em, they must be easy.

    I was a drummer in a former life...As far as drumming goes, pretty easy.


    edit: had I said the Brian Setzer Orchesrta version of Rock This Town, then you could slap me.

    Oh...Stevie Ray Vaughn has some stuff:
    If The House Is Rockin'
    Crossfire
    Pride & Joy


    remember...I am/was a drummer. don't hurt me...I'm fragile.
