  • Hi GMC'ers! John Petrucci is one of the most influential guitarists today. He has a very sophisticated technique, and is considered one of the best Progressive Rock guitarist out there.

    "Images and Words" is Dream Theater's second album, the first one introducing James Labrie on vocals. "Another Day" is the second track on the album, and is one of the nicest ballads ever written by Dream Theater.

    Technique wise this solo is difficult. While the first part of the solo seems very easy to play, the trouble starts with the ultra fast picking lick. A full staccato, two octave lick that is very hard to play in the required tempo. If you practiced my "Modal Madness" series however, you should not encounter as many problems.

    Techniques:
    * Phrasing
    * Vibratos
    * Hammer-ons
    * Pull-offs
    * Staccato/Alternate Picking
    * Slides
    * Bening

    Tuning:
    * Standard D
    * D - G - C - F - A - D
    (From thick to thin string)
    *One Whole Step Down

    If you have any questions:
    * Give feedback (upper-right-corner)
    * My Personal Board
    * General Forum

    Have fun practicing!/ Zsolt
