    Have a listen to this folks. It's French Horn playing of the highest standard. A guy has made his own variations of some of Dream Theatres work and plays it all on French Horn multi-tracked.

    Stunning...and would be brilliant as a band piece.

    There's a 2/2 on the same page as this one.

    Immense.

    mmm, we shall see! Sometimes people just need take their brass band blinkers off.

    Quite agree... this playing and sound is just something else. It's from a different league in my book, everything about it is class.

    Hehe Aidan.

    I'd wager there's no-one on here who could do all that.

    Well, haven't looked at the link yet, as am at work... But seems a bit pessimistic there John? There are some fabulous players loitering around on this site.

    Didn't mean to come across pesimistic, Dave, sorry. You're right, there are some incredibly talented players on here. However.. what I meant was the whole thing, i.e.

    Write a new medley arrangement of a rock groups classic pieces
    Transcribe this for one instrument
    Play each part
    Record each part
    Produce the video

    :)

    We certainly have people who could do one or two of these, but all of them...? Also.. it was a bit tongue in cheek as a retort to Aidans post ;)

    Wow, that is amazing. I wonder how it would have sounded on a tenor horn, though ;)

    I can transcribe but not multi-track :)

    I'd wager that there's not many people with the epic amount of time needed to do that. Then I'd wager that the ones left over couldn't do it anyway!

    - depends if the tenor horn has a 4th valve to get the extended lower range. :rolleyes:
