dagosto learned my synth solo and it sounds DEADLY

So in a recent music post I half-jokingly challenged listeners to learn a ridiculous synth solo that happens halfway through the song. I didn't think anyone would take it seriously, but a few days later the unstoppable dagosto sent me two messages, one saying "hey, can you send me a slowed down version of the solo so I can learn it", and then another saying "okay, never mind, I learned the solo and here it is". MAN. This is the coolest thing ever. Thanks man, you have rocked my world. I owe you one hug.

Horay for the MeFi music community!

Great post title. And the mods should make an exception to the rule just this time and let us change his username to "the unstoppable dagosto". Very, very cool.

fantastic. That's all I have to say about that.

At first listen it does sound pretty daunting but it actually falls under the fingers pretty well once you figure out the notes. There aren't any real strange finger gymnastics or string crossings that I ran into, its just thespeed that made it difficult. I like doing stuff like this because it makes me play things I wouldn't normally think up while playing guitar.

It's a killer line and I wouldn't have jumped on it if I didn't like it so much in the first place.

deadly is right.

you should get a full version with the solo in it either by updating this mp3 or the other post itself. I'd love to have a full length copy of yet another MeMuCollab

Can I have a version of the full song, with guitar solo overdubbed?
