Ah but Matias could easily play them and add his own twist to the solos like any good guitarist.
Isn't the point of a solo showing what YOU can do on the guitat rather than playing a solo from someone else?

Not exactly. Playing someone else's piece and adding your own touch to it can be a homage of sorts.

Plus it's just fun to play a bit of music you like, even if it isn't yours.

Yeah but like, that's like someone playing a cover of say The Unforgiven by Metallica and totally changing the solo. It's so iconic and familiar to the listener that totally changing it and filling it up with loads of technical stuff would just alienate everyone else. The ideal thing to do would be for the guitarist in question to play the solo as it was originally written, but interpret it in their own way, much like classical pianists will perform a Beethoven sonata the way it was originally composed, but with their own interpretation.

Essentially, its almost like Mataias is gonna be playing covers. So he's got to like, stay close to the originals, but at the same time feel free enough to add his own spin on it because he's got the existing fans of the band to think of. Since the context in which the music is being performed is that of a bunch of fans of the band's back catalogue, that has to be respected.

Really though this is a bunch of emotional intelligence psychobabble that I've been having some seminars on and I hope it wears off soon because lately I come across as a tremendous faggot.

I 100% agree in that with you. It would be amazing they could play every song from Polaris. My "Dream setlist" would look alike mm:

*Deep Unknown
*Falling Star
*King Of Nothing
*Blind
*Winter Skies
*Forever Is Today
*Higher We Go
*Somehow Precious
*Emancipation Suite I: Dusk
*Emancipation Suite II: Dawn
*When Mountains Fall
--
*Forever Free
*Black Diamond
*Eternity
*Season Of Change
*Visions
*SOS
*Legions

Yes, I would like that if they play whole album in sequence. Set could also be a little bit shorter, like 15 songs or something. Visions could also be replaced with Millennium or Against The Wind.

I only choose songs from Stratovarius albuns! :roll:
I mean the Instrumental Tracks from the Strato Albums. I don't think that they'll play them.
Why?!?
I think Matias would rather like to play his own solos then using one from Tolkki.
But every single other song before Polaris has solos from Tolkki? Even songs that aren't instrumentals, and absolute classics like Black Diamond, Kiss of Judas. Don't tell me he won't play those?! It's the same with the instrumentals, it would be interesting to see how he interprets them.

We need Strato doing a Live DVD+CD with them playing each Strato song on every record.

I guess Tolkki wouldn't be happy :lol:

uhhh...what's wrong with what you posted? Every time I've seen Megadeth the guitarist at the time nails the Tornado of Souls solo note for note. Since Strato and Mega are so guitar oriented I think most people at the shows will be listening for familiarities. It's kinda like saying "hey, I m good enough to play this and I can still make it my own". So yeah, I 100 percent agree with what you said... fag! :P :wink:

I wasn't talking about the solos in the song. I was talking about the instrumental pieces like "Stratovarius", "Stratosphere", "Stratofortress" that were often used the guitar solo section of the setlist. And I think Matias would rather like to play his own guitar-solos in that section, assumed there is one, than just playing a Tolkki piece.

Dude, we get it. You're a big Strato fan with the Fleur-De-Lis spread all over your house. No need to post those pictures especially if they have nothing to do with the topic.

The current one is perfect, apart for a few things: no Kiss of Judas but Coming Home instead, Paradise as a current song and Infinity instead of Destiny!!!
