Picking a Set-list
The time has come for me and some friends to whittle down our copious list of songs we try to jam out, and pick a half dozen to really work on. We all think 6 tunes is enough for now, especially since we are all part time musicians. Most of the tunes are metal and hard rock, and really, I like many of them a lot. Picking only 6 will be difficult, especially since we have to agree on the songs. One constant would be the desire to play lots of Priest :)
A rough list now could include some Judas Priest (Metal Gods, Better By You Better Than Me, Nightcrawler and possibly Heading out to the Highway or Breaking the Law), Slayer (Dead Skin Mask), Metallica (Seek and Destroy) and Iron Maiden (Flash of the Blade). All pretty cool tunes in their own right, and fun to jam regardless.
Six tunes should be enough for any BBQ or party, and we can always jam around on other things if we need to. Can't wait to get going... I know most of these songs pretty well, though there are parts here and there that I will really need to work on. We also get a mix of heavier slow metal ala Metal Gods, and faster stuff like Maiden. Should be fun for everyone, and the odd chance to go off on the guitar is always there :P
