Dream Theater - This is the Life - Solo
This article is part 45 of 52 in the 2022 music project series.
This is the Life is a rather mediocre song from Dream Theater's first album without Mike Portnoy: A Dramatic Turn of Events. I wasn't really a huge fan of this song, but the solo is actually kinda nice. It's got some cool licks in it, some of which I can't really play, but that's par for the course for Dream Theater music. To be honest, as I listened to it a bit more over the last week, it grew on me. But it's still a pretty sappy ballad.
