Dream Theater - Intro to "The Glass Prison."

Discussion in 'Tablature and Notation [BG]' started by ikickuintheballs, Jul 7, 2002.


  1. Yes, I know.. I've tried learning it by ear over and over again to no avail. I can't find anyone who has tabbed this one out so far, so maybe someone here can help me out. What does Myung do while playing his B-string? I saw them live in NYC, and was suprised to see he was doing the intro and not Petrucci (for some reason stuff like that amazes me... lol). Your help will be greatly appreciated! :D

    that last 7 on the E-string is a harmonic

  4. Thanks! :D

    It's not on the chapman stick, he plays it on his yamaha 6-string.
     
  5. If you want the full tab, go to www.dreamtheater.net and look under media, sheet music, and guitar tabs... the whole thing is tabbe din guitar, and it isnt too diffucult to format it to bass... enjoy

    It's because that's the right way to do it. The 7th or 16th fret - a F#, if I'm not mistaken.

    My problem is to let the harmonic ring while playing the melody on the C string, 'cause naturally I'll mute the G string but the harmonic is supposed to ring out... somebody help me!

    Ohh, ****... did I just read 'Dream Theater' and 'almost rocks as much as Rush'...:mad:...
    Dont get me wrong I really like Rush, I just think that Dream Theater is soo much better than "Rush" They are uncomparable (waiting to get burned) But if there your favorite band (DT is mine) then I can see your point.

    But Personally (PERSONALLY) think that Every member of Dream Theater is Way, Way, better than Rush.

    Dont Shoot me Rush lover's, I like them too but not as much as DT.:D

    Maybe, but thats not my point, I am saying that I think Dream Theater is a more skillful band, but I do like Rush, so dont all you Rush people think that I hate them, I do in fact really respect them.
     
  13. I dunno, Geddy, Neil, and Alex are quite accomplished... They've all won a bunch of awards and are generally considered some of the best in their respective fields. Haha, Dream Theater rocks too, so who cares?

    Funny, I'm listening to The Glass Prison right now... I sang the tune in my head while reading the tab, but it didn't hit me until the song got to that riff that I was actually listening to it. Don't mind me, I'm tired as hell. :D
     
  14. Dream Theater is not "more skilled than rush". They're two different bands with similar but very unique styles. You cant say one is better than the other; that would not be logical.
