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?

First off, is there any way to change your song?
Secondly, are you planning on playing it in the same key as the song is normally?

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. 

A year an a quarter of great grades in the class and you have barely learndt a thing. 


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.

Placemats: only if I become prez of earth 

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
