good but you'd have to have fingers like a foot long to play it...

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

what do you mean? The keyboard part? The keyboard part was never meant to be actually played on guitar, just a transcription.

All the guitar parts are manageable.

i agree, the powertab doesnt do a very good job of it, but it doesn't sound awkward in real life.

I enjoyed it, but maybe the last note could be held out a half note? Enjoyable, and I can imagine some JOhn Petrucci head boppin goin on. Check mine out if you have a chance:http://ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=306718

Glad you like it. It's actually nowhere near finished yet, if i had intended it to end i probably would have held that note. I have a lot more I'll post an update when it's significantly more complete. And I'm glad to be compared to John Petrucci ;>


EDIT: I think its far enough along for another critique, so here's an updated version.

Not finished yet, but i did have it fade out nicely just for effect. I didn't tab the solo because it'll more than likely be improv (cause i find it to be much more real when i improvise), so just enjoy the soothing keyboard sounds for now (I may make a "sample solo" to fit in there later on)
