    I listened to this song yesterday after not hearing it for years, and I forgot how great this solo is. It's a very underrated Petrucci solo IMO, and ended up being a lot tougher than I expected haha. There's a lot of weird but cool timing and phrasing going on. Anyways, it was fun to play!

    Thanks! Yep, it's the Axe-fx II. It's really a pretty basic patch, and I use it as my live lead tone with Threat Signal.

    Comp -> Drive (OD808) -> Amp (USA Lead 2) -> Cab (4x12 Recto V30 RW) -> Delay -> Reverb

    Sorry, I don't remember what I used for that cover. I think I used the FAS Modern into a German cab or something like that. I made the patch for that cover, and never really used it after that.

    Great :) also I think you used an 8 string on that cover yes? Or you down tunned a 7 pretty low, it sounded really low and clear as fuck, it was a great djenty tone!

    Every time I hear someone play a DT track or solo or what ever, I always hate myself because I have not heard them in a long time. And when I do listen to them I hate that I cant listen to them all at once but have to spend like 15 hours to listen all the songs I wanted. But the part I hate the most is the moment when I get so inspired that I want to learn a song. Petrucci makes everything look and sound pretty easy, but as I take the guitar to my hand and play a minute the reality hits me and the "easy" part wasn't so easy after all.

    So, I'm glad not everybody are not as bad as I am. Very well played.
