OK so I like to play guitar for my girlfriend. Who dosn't? I asked her today if there was any song she'd like me to learn for her. Shes listens to whiny emo crap like Blue October so I wasn't expecting much and she says, "Oh I really liked this one song I heard the other day. Universal Mind by Liquid Tension!" REALLY?! of all the ****ing songs she wants me to play her she picks a Liquid Tension one. I'm just an OK guitarist, but now I wanna kill myself. Just thought I'd share.

Never heard the song, but this sounds like it should be in the pit, where you can get the 'go kill yourself' and 'rape her and her hamster' replies.

But srsly, if it's not a hard song, then play it. And don't knock other people's music.

Please don't tell me I'm the only one that clicked this thread thinking I would learn how to make my guitar sound like a grizzly bear.

lol, start playing 53 hours a day, and you should be able to play it in just about 3 life times :P
seriously, good luck, you'll need a whole ( insert the biggest thing you know here ) of luck and practice

Didn't mean to bash anyones music just saying its not that technically advanced. Pettrucci is one of the most technically stunning guitarists in the world IMO. I didn't think she had any knowledge of shred or guitar rock and she stunned me with this.

So, you say "My girlfriend made me want to die" and then made a crack about emo? I mean, I'm no emo fan ... but isn't that a bit contradictory?

Can some one say CORNY!

1. she is your girlfriend, so you must of known what she listens to.

2. IMO, you're kind of corny.

3.grow some balls.

4.stop crying like a bitch.

5.you made your own grave, now sleep in it.


Also I just like to add what you did was just like a guy saying shoot me to their friend and then they get surprised when their friend shoots him and say OMG YOU SHOT ME, MAN!

on the other side, she could have chosen an harder song ... ( there are not much songs that are harder then this one... but there are some... for instance, The dark eternal night, on Dream Theater's latest album, systematic chaos )

Before I make this statement, let me clarify that I am one of few on this board that actually likes DragonForce.

Now that that's out of the way,

BLASPHEMY!!!!

Don't ever imply that Herman Li is better than John Petrucci. You might as well just slap Jesus.

I'm going to assume you're speaking of Through the Fire and Flames which is always directly associated with Dragon Force. And assuming you are, Universal Mind blows that song out of the water in terms of technical difficulty. The competition isn't even close.

Suck it up mon, My girlfriend wanted me to learn Slipknot, and all that stuff. I wish she told me to play liquid tension, even though I wouldn't be able to pull it off.
