Best John Petrucci Solosmetfan001
The Contenders: Page 2XW
Beautiful tone, exquisite emotion, wonderfully tuneful, and perfectly fitting to the song. This is a nearly perfect solo. It's also a fine sampling of Petrucci's prodigious skill without ever sounding excessive or masturbatory. This is my favorite among his solos though it is quite overlooked. I believe it deserves much more recognition.
Beautifully lyrical, masterfully constructed. As concisely restrained as it is explosively brilliant. On of the most melodic solos on Dream Theater's most melodic album and the perfect example of why John Petrucci is a supreme guitarist: not just chops, but thoughtful, sensitive, and emotional.
Epic if I ever saw it
Especially the version from Metropolise 2000: Lives Scenes from New York starting around 16:40
In the first couple of minutes, his Jazz influences are best heard.V1 Comment
How can this solo not be number one? In fact this could be the best of all time.
If You were one of those Dragonforce Guitar Hero people...
