The greatest (wierd) cover band I have ever been in
I found an old song list for one of my old bands I used to play bass in. We did two bands with the same guys in both bands. One was a really great blues bands where the guitar player sang all the tunes and the other was a weird cover band wheere we all sang different tunes.
here is a partial songlist we worked off....(my sister described us as the craziest iPod on shuffle)

I like it. I might pull out the Journey songs, personally, but there are a bunch of other popular tunes to replace those with anyway. This is a good example of a set list made up of songs everyone knows without it having to have overplayed standards in it.
I guess the big question is, were you successful with this set list?
Proposed TGP Golden Rule: Comment unto other guitar players' skills as you would have others comment unto yours.
No seeing how this is weird or all that different than anything else out there. I've played many of those songs in bands at one time or another. Good stuff though.

Up in Northeast wisconsin it was pretty wierd to mix all these songs apparently.
We were moderately successful on the covers, but nothing like or blues band, which was pretty successful, but were still more rock'n'roll than blues, at least to me.
