I was sitting here, expecting something really similar to Feel The Pain. The result? My mind was blown.
The song starts out heavier then what I expected. To begin the song, there are a good amount of chords snaking up and down the fretboard, with the occasional triplet to strum.
After a few minutes of this, the song takes a huge spin around, and the entire feel of the song just immediately changes. The song slows down about halfway through, and the notes turn to be slower, yet still fun hammer-ons to a sustained note with the occasional two-note chords.
After about a minute of that, the song busts out into solo, and the solo, in all honesty, is simply just phenomenal. The beginning of the solo is a fair amount of hammer-ons going up and down the neck with some weird strumming in between some notes. As the solo progresses, some faster chords come in, then some trills come in. Later in the solo, it starts to get a little bit harder with some faster hand movements for hammer-ons and chords up and down the neck. The ending of the solo is probably the hardest part of the song, in my honest opinion, because the hammer-ons speed up, with some more chords movements.
The song is definitely a song most people could play. It's a great practice song, or a great warmup song, because it has a little bit of everything you'd find in any guitar song all packed into this song itself.
This song progresses really nicely, from some heavy alternative to this slowed down, amazing guitar solo. The main reason I got this song was because of its high ratings, and this song definitely deserves its gold stars.
Basically, if you're a guitarist, this song is a MUST buy.
