I have about 3 people willing to record also people in the past have recorded talent shows at my high school so I don't think that would be a problem.

It'd be cool to play a cool sounding one too, as i think its gonna be broadcast in the auditorium right?

I think it would be sweet to play kanon-kanon or bowser the shredder.
These files are a little technical, but would be crowdpleasers.

I actually played Ambient Angels for an exhibition in one of my classes as a sophomore. The professor suggested I add my mad fiffer skillz to my resumé.
I dare say the file is too hard for the OP to play reliably in a public setting. I didn't even FC it when I played it and I was top 8 D5 at the time.

It really is no question in my mind that given another opportunity to play in public like that, I would pick Serenade without a second thought... even though I could get away with playing something much harder.
+1 for this!

great progressive difficulty build up like rushy said. Hell, maybe everyone will be so impressed they'll want an encore then you can do ambient angels lol

EDIT: just a thought, if you're playing on R3 turn off "amazing accuracy" so that way in case they look at your PA count at the end it will look more impressive lmao

pmuch fuck amazings forever IMO, I don't even do marvs on SM

Slower speedmods are more fun to watch, so it's a bonus if you don't play on 3.5x or something

The problem I find with Serenade is that it ends abruptly, and when doing a song in performance, ending abruptly may not get the best reception. R^2 uses a more drawn out ending for files, but R^3 cuts that timing in half, and songs like Serenade still end abruptly, even if done in R^2, because people don't use fade-outs fast enough for FFR..

If it didn't end abruptly, I definitely would have considered the song when I did it way back then.

i was thinking this too, ambient angels kinda ends abrupt as well
those two files are just so perfect for showcasing except for the cutoff.
They are still great files to showoff though

I don't think their abrupt endings matter that much

Alright I guess that's that, I have narrowed it down to 3 songs and I will be picking which one I'm going to use for auditions today. I will pick the song later on today before auditions and I will tell you guys if I make it into the talent show. Auditions are today and tomorrow and people apparently just walking in for them so there might be too much people for one day. So if you don't hear from me today then you will be hearing from me tomorrow to see if I made the cut.

Edit: Whoops almost forgot. I will also be giving out the credits later today so please be patient.

right now at this exact moment I am at the talent show. I asked the teacher in charge if he could get the the projector. He said he did but he cant get the projector screen so dreams may be rip. He is talking to people..... 3 minutes later he came and told me to play and I did. I was going to play serenade but I accidentally played Vertex beta because I was playing that before I left. He said come back tomorrow and see what he could do.

He said to play the song again, watched me play it again and said that this looks 100% fake. He asked me to stop playing mid song to see if I was actually playing ffr which I did. Apparently now he wants me to do a skit where a couple of people will play ffr do really bad at it then I come in and do amazing. He will try to talk to people and I will talk (beg) the school to bring the projector down so I can use it. The only thing that that he can think of off of the top of his head is using TV's and the TV's at my school are wayyyyy to small for the auditorium.

Edit: I PLAY SO GOOD I'M "FAKE" FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE I DONT KNOW HOW TO FEEL ABOUT THAT.

a skit sounds kinda dumb tbh I don't really understand the point of it, is watching other people sucking beforehand supposed to increase your validity or something

Ya I memorized the arrows for Vertex beta as a backup but I was going to play serenade.
and tbh I do agree with you that a ffr skit sounds really dumb besides that fact that I might have to play on a really small tv. I will just have to wait and see what is going to happen tomorrow.

Skit idea will just make the other 2 kids look like shit, not a good idea IMO.

I don't like Vertex Beta as a song choice, it's 3 mins of literally nothing but stream. Very bland...
