    BWV 1052 is one of my favorites by Bach. A most elegant and excellent concerto.

    I'm sure Romeo has many of such cool recordings, old and new. Would be nice if he released some of them. The Dark Chapter II would be way better though. C'mon Mike, do it! :D

    Definitely Romeo. Technique, vibrato... 99% sure it's him.

    I would bet a healthy sum of money it is Romeo. How can I get this on my iPod? Romeo definitely needs to do Dark Chapter part II.

    Even though there are some MJR qualities here, this sounds more like Tony MacAlpine to me.

    Nope, thats just one way to change random thread to a romeo vs petrucci and symphony x vs dream theater thread.

    Even though those two gentlemen could probably play this, the style and phrasing is in my ears classic Romeo. Check out that part at 4:13 again.

    My best guess is a left-over tack from The Dark Chapter.

    I still can't say one way or the other, but upon listening to it once again, I would lean towards early Romeo... Love the clip though. Thanks for bringing up this classic post!

    True gentlemen prefer Markus Steffen and Jim Matheos. Quite.

    We should have a detailed discussion on this. It seems like a great idea, so I'm surprised it has never come up before.

    ????? Please.


    I don't know if MJR is better than Petrucci or not, but these days I prefer MJR. About 5 years ago I saw Petrucci as part of G3 with Paul Gilbert and Satriani. Petrucci's set was excellent. To see him play non DT material was quite enjoyable. He mostly played tracks from his Suspended Animation CD and Portnoy was on drums. I would love to see MJR with G3. Maybe with Steve Vai and Satriani.

    Me too, although I'm not sure if MJR is a big enough name for G3. I also question whether he would even want to do it.

    I wouldn't want those other two to be with him... especially Satch; bores the hell out of me.
    Hmmm... just throwing this out there: Romeo, Akerfeldt, and John Mitchell.
