    Hello all,

    I am organizing a rock show for my department. Request your valuable suggestion to choose some rock songs. I am a guitarist and can play only rhythm and our team doesnt have a good lead guitarist. Hence the choice of songs will be of the kind which focuses mainly on simple rhythm. For example I can play Summer of 69, Its my life(Bon Jovi) etc. Hence please let me know any songs of this nature in Hindi or English.

    Thanks and kind regards
    Sachin

    Its kind of difficult to suggest songs unless I know what level you are at in with Rhythm Guitar....
    Some songs I can think off the bat are mentioned below - Most of these songs are easy to play.

    Song Name - Band Name
    -------------------------------------------------
    Fortunate Son - Creedence Clearwater Revival
    Bad Moon Rising - Creedence Clearwater Revival
    Am I Evil - Diamond Head
    Late Goodbye - Poets of the fall (The Intro is easy, and the rest of the songs can be played with chords)

    no offence, but carnival of rust needs a capo or guitar retuning.
    Else its very difficult to play, unless you have really long stretchable fingers!
    Rockstar by nickelback is a really good option..

    Suggestions depend on what kinda folk you have in your office, those who still listen to 'teri umeed tera intezar karta hoon' or ppl who like, say, poets of the fall, scorpions, etc..

    Then my suggestions would range from:
    Acoustics:
    Sabse peeche hum khade - silk route
    Kholo kholo - taare zameen par
    Wonderwall - Oasis
    Let there be love - Oasis

    For electric/distortion,
    Naav - Udaan (fabulous rock piece)
    Zombie - Cranberries

    Or if you really want ppl to listen to popular rock, use ones like summer of 69, songs from Rock onn, if you can, etc.

    There are more, but first you've to think what your office people might like better...

    Put the fire on stage by performing Rammstein's Du hast or Iron Maiden's fear of dark, hallowed be thy name. But it requires experts.
