Parkway Drive - Horizons (C4C)

Horizons by Parkway Drive. I never got into this song all that much previously but i had a listen a couple weeks ago and it blew my mind. So i of course listened to it over and over and over and eventually got around to learning it.

This song was a lot more challenging than i had anticipated. Some of the galloping really tripped me up and the solo in particular took a shitload of work thus why i recorded the solo in a separate clip haha. The rolling sweeps were sooooo hard to get clean and i still need to put so much work into them. I never expected to struggle so much on a Parkway solo. Usually they're pretty simple so to struggle this much definitely gave me a new found respect for Jeff.

So here's the finished product..



A ton of mistakes but let me know what you guys think.

Hopefully more Parkway to come in the future.

I've always thought Horizons was their best album, and you covered that song excellently! Props! C4C?
