I read the last one thinking it'd be like this but it wasn't lol. So I'm doing it like this. C'mon, I know there's gotta be some talented musicians on this board!

For guitar I love playing Earthshine, Virtuality, and Bastille Day on electric, Different Strings, Fly By Night and Natural Science on acoustic or clean.

On drums, YYZ, Tom Sawyer and La Villa (which took me forever to learn). I also like playing Between Sun And Moon and Natural Science.

I always loved playing YYZ, La villa and Circumstances.

When I'm sitting around playing my accoustic I always play The Fountain of Lamneth, The Trees and The Oracle.

I can't pick just 1 favorite, I guess if I had to I would choose The Trees.

On electric guitar I love playing Overture, Temples of Syrinxs, Cygnus X-1 and Closer To The Heart (I f***ing love that solo!  cool.gif )

When im just messing around on my acoustic I enjoy playing Roll The Bones for some reason, I really like the transition.

I'll get round to playing drums one day.......maybe!

2112 is great on drums.  I don't know if I'm playing it perfect, but it's fun none the less.  wink.gif
