Re: How faithfull do you keep to a song while playing it??

I usually keep the main rhythm parts- they are often the ones everyone knows. When it comes to the solo, i usually stay faithful, but occasionally ill play any cool sounding lick ive come up that fits with it. Most listeners dont notice something subtle like that, but they can pick up the feel that ...

Re: Whats your playing style?

I found a tab for the 5th a la malmsteen awhile ago, i learned bits and pieces of it (some parts were pretty boring to play). As for the other, Ive never found one.

Re: Whats your playing style?

It's actually quite complex, though it isnt RIDICULOUSLY hard. That tab is also grossly incomplete... then again, it's actually tabbed on the d-minor scale like its supposed to be played, and not the a-minor like other tabs are. Find one of the a-minor tabs and throw a capo on the fifth. (though you...

Opening is not the way to gain fame. It may very well be the opposite. No offense to you at all, but when an audience is treated to an opening act, they will usually just be impatient for the main show... personally, im glad there's no opening act for Montreal now (again no offense) cause thats just...

My electric is missing several strings, so I used an acoustic for this. My sound recording is crap so you may need to turn up your volume.

Re: Rock star got over 7000 Euro ticket for speeding

...I dont like it. Charging a famous and possibly rich person 7000$ for a speeding ticket, is the same thing as letting a famous and possibly rich person get away with a 0$ speeding ticket. It's discrimination, and shouldn't be done, and yet it is.... nobody should be above, or below, the law.

For guitar, the flat out hardest solo is probably the kiss of judas... there's some very sick tapping in there that I havent been able to figure out correctly by listening to the song- let alone be able to play.
