Under A Glass Moon - Dream Theater (Guitar Solo Cover)

Dream Theater ‘Under a Glass Moon’ John Petrucci guitar solo cover.

Trying to get back into the swing of things but really struggling to get motivated lately with doing videos, let alone play the guitar, so went and learnt an old favourite of mine to help me get my mojo back. Hope you guys dig it!

I love this period of John Petrucci, he had all the shred but the melodies as well which went slightly on the wayside in later stages where he focused more speed. And I prefered his Ibanez era than Music Man !:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

What’s your favourite era of JP?


@Shoi Awesome cover! What’s the most difficult part of this solo?

I struggle with the big stretch part 0:30 :frowning:

Btw, what monitors are you using?


Hey Mark,
Thanks !
I am using the KRK Rockit 5, excellent monitor for a home studio. I saw Jeff Loomis had the same so went for them :slight_smile:

Regarding the solo I would say the phrasing is tricky as it’s not super linear. The stretched sweep/tapping lick is very hard especially to get it super clean.
