Which strato songs can u play in the guitar??

Here musicians can talk to each other about making music etc. Of course if you are not a musician you are still welcomed to this board, but the topics should somehow be about making music.

I dont write anything down. I just listen and remember the guitar lines by heart, just like any Stratofan remembers most of the vocal lines and lyrics by heart.

And learning a song by listening to it is the best way to really learn the song and to train your hearing, although it is also the hardest way :)

I have been playing guitar for over three years now. But Iv'e been playinf saxophone for 11 years I guess. Long tunes are not much harder to remember, if you have listened to destiny over and over again, you will remember it.

About playing solos, playing them note for note is not an easy task. Even when I play any Strato solo note for note it doesn't sound exactly like Timo, Even If I had the exact same equipment, I bet I still wouldn't sound like Timo. I perfer to follow the patterns and do my own variation, which (IMO) is the best thing about the solo's.
Guitar solos sybolize freedom to me. When time comes for a solo in a song, one should feel free to play what the hell he /she wants. Wheter you are playing Strato, Extreme, Eurythmics Mayhem or your own stuff, the solo is yours, the solo is your feelings, the solo is YOU. A solo should never be something printed in black on white in a "rule book".

Let me say I agree with Veripalttu: I can play almost every Stratovarius stuff, and I learn only by listening at the songs, like he says, as fans are remembering the vocals and sing them, I hear the notes, register them in my mind and put the almost automatically at the guitars. First I learn the rythmics, of course, and the most important is the tone of the whole song. After I learned the first note, then everything comes alone... I try to follow the songs, to sing it in my mind over the rythmics and when I hear something is wrong (always is wrong at the beginning), I try other notes until it all sounds good: this ability of know when "IT SOUNDS GOOD" is nothing you can learn, I think. That's why there are tabs :) ... I never used them, because I'm lucky to have the "perfect pitch", that means I know notes in my mind, even without listening to anything (my teacher told me that is something like 0,1% of people has it)..... But anyway it's not necessary, just a good ear is really enough!!

About solos, I learn them note-by-note, it's very difficult but in the end I reply solos quite perfectly. Then it makes me sad that Tolkki plays always differents solo live, because he doesn't even write a solo, he just play it down and record it....

If the stuff it too difficult (like Symphony X or Dream Theater), then sometimes I need some tabs...

But play with your ear, and try to do always better!!

Yes it's true but only because he doesnt to do it...like Jens...

I have a solo written by Jens...but i think that he prefer to improvise at the moment...and i think that Tolkki too...
