Not delving into the realms of elitism or arrogance (=P), i'm just wondering if it's actually that rare a song to know on bass.

When I say "know", i mean know the whole thing and play it pretty cleanly, not asking for full blown JM replication here, just pretty clean, including the solo ¬___¬

*EDIT* It's a dream theater song......shameful (disappointed shake of the head)......

Oh... you didn't... you just...

You just lost all man points. That is one of the most awesome ragtime piano solos EVER.

EVER!

TS, it's a song I'm learning. Some parts are rather tricky, others not so.

That is an epic piano solo!

But yeah, great bass. I doubt I could play it, with all those time changes.


To be honest with you, when you get into it, the changes all flow - they make sense, so you don't notice them

I'm sorry. I don't like pianos that much.
Yes is about the most I can handle.

why do you think I bought a bass when I have a 4000 dollar Yamaha in my living room?

do you know the song? or just asking who does? if so, post an MP3 of you playing it.
#10
Lol yeah I can do pretty well for the most of it, i don't know the solo, usually just improv over it, and the bit at the end i've yet to learn....... I know this means nothing without any mp3s or videos, I just never get around to posting any, ill try to do it soon........

Nope, haven't attempted to, because I don't have a 6 string.
When I have the spare cash I'll buy a cheap Douglas 6 and learn it. Then rub it in your face.

I will write your name to remind you to learn it. And rub it in your face if you do not provide soundclips

Like that kid that said that Tommy the Cat was soooo easy and failed to provide soundclips everytime I reminded him.

The actual riff isn't THAT bad. Its just getting all of his double stops and fills in. And then the solo

I'm gonna say that I can't. As far as I think, Delirium might be technically the fastest in the regulars. But I don't know. Plus I don't have a six.

The solo is actually not that bad.

The toughest part (in my opinion) is the section after the bass solo, where there is lots of string hopping, and the part where the bass keeps going back to the E. And that's just a question of stamina and memory.

And I'll fight Ben to the death for that title

Just an FYI, you don't need a 6 string to play it.

Just transpose the high C string into the G and there you go.

And even moreso on topic:

I'm close to getting it, its just the part at the end of the solo where he plays those chords right before it builds into the heavy riff.

Well, after on of the many attempts I have made on the song, it is safe to say it is near impossible on a 4 string Needless to say when I get my bongo in the next week or so I'm going straight for this.

It's not so much about the high C, you only really need that for the solo, it's very much a low-B intensive song, its awkward to play it correctly without one, you need to resort to octaving certain parts......5 string minimum I say, just like a lot of DT stuff........

Well I watched the video on Youtube and yeah, these guys' skills are sick. And I admit I'd seriously have to practice for a while until I could play it flawlessly
BUT
Am I the only one who doesn't get a kick out of this music? To me it's as if this is all about skills and really really fast scales and a dozen key changes, but there's no feeling in it. Like an emotionless robot. Oh well.

Ah there should be whole forums of UG dedicated to this arguement, to me, to be emotional, you have to be able to play fast and slow.....It's like emotions in real life, you can be just as moved by something really serene and peaceful as something really technical and energetic, DT play fast as well as slow and both ways work just as well, it annoys me when people say something like

Listen to Scenes From A Memory and then say that.

Alot of people seem to have the common misconception that DT is just mindless wankery, and they couldn't be further from the truth.

More specifically, listen to Through Her Eyes.

Dream Theater have skill and know how to use it.

For most shred, if you find it emotionless, your ears cannot keep up, or they interpret it in the wrong way. Just because it doesn't have a bend or a vibrato on every other note does not mean it is without emotion.

I wanna try to learn the solo, maybe at 1/3 speed.

I really like the piano in the song overall, but there isn't as much bass as I thought there would be. I never really liked many songs without lyrics, but this one was pretty good.

Well let me rephrase this... I -just- don't get a kick out of this music although I can very well imagine that it really hits home for some people. There's an emotion behind every improvisation, but for me really fast and 'seemingly' random improvs just don't translate into the language of music I understand... I guess that's a good way of putting it. Peace out

I really like the solo from Lines in the Sand, it's very Pink Floyd'ish sounding. Dream Theater varies a lot in their solo styles, it's not all speed.
