Ive just find this....and its massive great take on the piece.Mindblowing work gone into this.Really enjoyed this and thanks for sharing it with us.
Aha, just read the track comments, Rich on guitars - what can I say - good man Rich!
James!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You and me have just become best friends;-) I am actually working out a few classics (Bach included). If ever you want to collab on another of these just ask and I will jump at the opportunity. Love this one, I know the original well - Bach is one of my all time favorite musicians and he has influenced my playing hugely. Some lovely fretwork throughout but also worth noting that this interpretation is not simply fret ....age as per me old pal Yngwie and his cohorts. Nice vibe through out, Johan would have been proud. Rated and nominated.
Wow! What an ambitious undertaking! Very interesting, and very very creative!
very accomplished piece of work Guys. Tremendous effort all round. I take my hat off to you!! :-) Martin
Featured Artist of the Week! Congratulations, Andy & a fine tune to showcase your talents! :)
Got to this one at last. Like early Yes on steroids! LOL!! Seriously, I like this, someone worked real hard on the drum programming, so would love to hear it just a bit more (but that's just me). Oh, love the breakdown, came as a cool drink! Would like to hear the guitar drop back for a while and let those lovely keys come through just for a few bars (and I'm a guitarist!) Rate.
Man thats been well and truly rocked up with that intro... This is a very dark track, the piercing lead helps bring much tension and mood to the track...
Very interesting and varied take on the original theme...
Been back, to push an xtra deserved button:) well done! Sonya Stewart.
Right up my alley... a very dark alley full of perils. Rich has that TS10 screamin. This obviously took a lot of time & hard work & it shows. Only crit: I wish it were longer. R8
Ok first - those guitars - love it. Gimme that feedback! Wild ride on the arrangement. I see a stage full of musicians and a rock opera. This song is full of surprises. The way Andy switches from one emotion to the next is artistic gold. The way the Rich laces the guitar in with the rest of the arrangement is rather amazing. Thick, full sound with epic excitement. Cyber high-fives all around.
Yes! its certainly taken alot of hard work and effort to put this song together...superbly played and produced. Very Professional all round.Great to see you back. Rated.
Wow, The amount of work that has gone into this is amazing and no wonder you have been away for months. Although not really lovers of classical rock, we have to take our hats off to you both for this collab which has been brilliantly arranged, played and produced.
This is great! Not sure your disclaimers in the artist comments were warranted at all. Excellent work all around, unbelievable guitar playing by Rich as always. I always liked classical music done in a rock fashion, including Yngwie Malmsteen and others, so this isn't a stretch for me. Good work, and take a rate!
I totally agree with Dan here. Really, a great master piece. I, personally, being a fan of Beethoven myself, have to say, this does deserve a unique identity of it's own. More like Modern Beethoven that has just entered the musical world! Great work indeed!
James. Have to wrap my brain around this one. Rich was rich with talent and you always surprise me with what direction you go in with your music. This is no exception. A well done to the master masterer.
Wow>>>that was a bit good wasnt it!
Great piece of music, and top musicianship/production from you both.
Im sure even the original author of this would be very proud if he heard it now!
Really enjoyable listen!
How cool is this, turning a classical piece onto the rock thing!, yes cool guitar work, i am just imagining the fingerwork involved in playing the guitar, guitar is never an instrument I could play but admire some of you rock dudes - Ya cool stuff guys. Very well done! Sonya Stewart.
Love the guitar work.
Great arrangement,it captures the feel of the original piece and much more.
Technically i think its fair to say its acheived its ambition.This is certainly not my sort of music,too much guitar and virtuoso.I cant help but admire this level of skill though..as a muso its hard not too.As for what the purists may think? i guess that depends on their modernist stance.I'll rate purely on maximum effort in performance and arrangement.
As old Ludwig was deaf as a post, I think he'd probably appreciate this very tactile rendition of his tune! Sound magnificent over my headphones, but I'll admit I was a bit exhausted and very glad when you dialed it back for a bit of a reprieve a little after 4 minutes in...Superb performances, both of ya, and nobody mixes'em like you, Andy. Don't doubt for a minute your gonna tweak and fiddle with it, what I'm hearing now is blowing me away, though I'll admit to being a bit of a lightweight:) Heck yeah, it's rated, I'll save a nom and see what you've done with it by week's end.
There you are, Andy! Wondered where you have been, good to see you/hear you! Oh, lol... you wrote; "He'll probably roll over (beethoven) in his grave!"
I don't know - he might rollover and join in on this rendition! Kickazz! ;)
Surprisingly enough MP3 Unsigned, after a couple of months solid back-to-back techno has come up with some of my favourite musical food, rock. It's turned into a good source of that material over the last few months and that's never a bad thing. Not that I don't like all the bleep-bleep, it's just in my heart I prefer musicians who play instruments. After some reading I discover
