Hey guys! Got Symphony X's new album a few days ago, loving it and I just had to cover something. I figured this out by ear, so some stuff's probably wrong and the solo is half improv (because there's no way in hell I can transcribe Michael Romeo's solos). Lemme know what you think!
dude, how did you get the album allready? it's not supposed to be released for another 5 days:O
sounds awesome!! could you maybe send me your X3 live patch, i love your tone
It leaked two days ago though I fully intend to buy the double CD version on the 21st, it's so worth it. And I don't know how to do that haha (my Line 6 software's glitched or something), but I could write down my settings if you want
