Re: Just some thoughts...

stratovarius has a lot of darker lyrics as well as positive. Sure thing! When I talked about the spirit of music, I was talking not about our mood, but about not hating and keaping peace and respect.

Re: Just some thoughts...

When a musician is playing/composing, he should be it doing at a 50% for himself and a 50% for those who are listening. Music is the game of using your instrument to tell something. To do that, you must be free and happy with what you are playing, no matter whatever others may think; but at the same...

Another one from Sonata I've just discovered. Listen to the live version of My Land from Songs of Silence. 3 minutes 25 seconds, the same riff as the first part of the instrumental bridge before the solo of Night Time Eclipse... just coincidence, I guess. Very simple riff
