For my high school guitar class I have to play a song of my choice in front of the class. I chose El Scorcho, and I need to perform in a week. I chose this song without thinking much and without realizing that the tune is quite repetitive and boring without vocals/drums/bass. I was wondering if anyone on here knows of any cool chords or notes or whatever that I could play in the song, in addition to the riff played during the verses and chorus, the bridge, and the short solo thing.
Obviously I am a total music noob, and would love some assistance.
This guy on youtube plays some chords during the chorus, maybe something similar to that?
It's a bit too late to change songs.
I'll probably be playing in standard tuning. I can tune it down if I have to.
by now, i would assume that you wouldve learndt the jamb
starting from scratch.
Verse- find a tab that begins the riff on the 5th fret on the 6th string
Chorus- a half measure of an A major chord followed by D major in the second half and repeat twice. then play half measure of A major and half measure of E major. next play half measure of A major and a half measure of D major twice followed by the A and the E once again. The final measure in the chorus consist of a half measure of A major and two quarter measures of D7 and C7.
Bridge- measure of A major, measure of D major, measure of B minor, and a measure of E major. repeat until solo.
Solo- find a tab or solo in the key of A major.
Good luck with your performance Stefan.
Record the performance and post it for us, Stefan.
Thanks br0 and thanks Danielle.

I play this with my band all the time. Arpeggiate every other time off of the major chord. SO, it varies it up a little bit. Then the "How stupid is it?" part is double time and the power chords are...Ab, C#, Bb, Eb....i think at least. Don't have a guitar in front of me right now so sorry if thats wrong.
Point is, throw in some major chords instead of the arpeggiated riff
