What was the last BG song you played?

#1 Post by Avelar » 28 Jul 2010 21:31

Finished playing Bright Eyes right now. The solo is not completely learned, but it is near. Of course, it is inifinitely far from how Andre plays it. Beautiful solo.

One of my favorites. I like this kind of fast melodic songs very much.

Nightfall on the hand also has very beautiful melodies that are not heard very good because of vocals.

I was tempted to start learning, I may even do so when I get my new guitar. But I took a look a year or 2 back and thought f$%k that >_<

Not very hard to play, although I still can't play this parts at 0:28-0:42 and 4:46-4:48 properly.

Probably the best song to play :twisted: So energetic and so cool solo! It always leads me to ecstasy :D Especially at 2:03-2:25, solo and the ending. I only wish that I could finally manage the hardest parts at 3:22-3:24 and 3:45-3:48.

Arwen, do you have a tab for this song? I mean a "5+ 5- 4+ ..." kind. I have problems playing sheet music on a harp (well, on other instruments too :oops: ). It will be interesting to try The Bard's Song on a harp and see how it goes.

Great! I anticipate these two songs as probably the most interesting from the new album. Especially lead guitar! I look forward to it. Good luck!

Anyway, the first guitar cover is yours :wink: AVITD is covered very well too! Only the bridge (1:27) sounds oddly to me. No problem that you won't make a tab, someone else can use your video to do this. Me, for example :) I will try to learn how to play it. Although your use of the capo will make it more difficult.

Yeah, I found this video while seeing if anyone had already covered the song (for lead guitar). I used it as a base for my cover I'm gonna do, cause although most of the riffs so far I could do by ear seeing them being played helped. So thanks! And soon I'll hopefully have a cover of the lead guitar.
