    have they ever done an unplugged concert??
    i mean its an awesome song, considering they have so many mellow songs, and many of there heavier songs sound awesome when played with 2 acoustic guitars...( try out the riffs in any BWP song unplugged on your guitar, ull get what i mean)
    so if it hasnt happenned yet, mikael please take note and add an unplugged gig to your next tour (also release it in DVD :) ):)

    Why not, but not the heavier songs, growling and acoustic guitars don't fit for some reason.

    They've done shows where they only played songs from Damnation. I know they weren't technically unplugged, but the term tends to also be used in such situations (ex: Nirvana Unplugged). But to play their heavy songs unplugged is a terrible idea IMO and it's a cliche that Opeth must never partake in.

    Perhaps they could sing the growling parts clean instead; they could make up new clean-singing melodies for those parts :) maybe not, would probably sound funny... but still, it's an idea, isn't it? :p

    This would be pretty great.

    Id love to hear an acoustic version of one of their heavys.

    Im sure they could edit some to be without screaming.
    Thinking about it I reckon it would sound a bit Doomy.
    Maybe "acoustic doom"

    I remember reading somwhere that Mike usually writes his songs w/ an acoustic guitar so eventually the heavy songs still sound good unplugged

    Really? I've been doing the same thing for the past two years because I don't have an electric guitar available to me :loco:

    perhaps we at last would get to hear still day beneath the sun and patterns in the ivy II if they would do such a thing, go unplugged!
