Hi guys,

To play John Petrucci solo's on the Gibson Les Paul, is not always simple!
The Music-Man guitar has 24 frets and the LP has only 22 frets.
When John bend his note on the 24 fret (2 semi-tones), we have to bend it from 22 fret to "26" fret (4 semi tones) -It's hard to be precise but not impossible! (see 3:02)

Although the lots of deferences between the 2 guitars (neck (for playing), pickups (for sound), etc'), I tried to get a similar sound to john, using my mesa/boogie roadster amp, rectifire cabinet & the SM57 mic.

Tell me what you think...

nice playing, man. I play both EBMM JP6 and Les Paul, always find them very different. The JP is like a slick fast sport car, whereas the LP is like American muscle, like a Mustang. I really liked how you got all those fast sweeps and runs very smooth on the LP :dude:

Welcome to the forum. Post more that was great!

What signatures do you have on your LP?

If you don't mind me asking, how old are you? Great playing, especially for a younger musician! Can't wait to see what you're capable of in another 10-15 years! :thumb:
