    The last installment for the year is a cover of probably my favorite solo:
    <em>Innocence Faded</em> from Dream Theater's 
    <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Awake_(Dream_Theater_album)"><em>Awake</em></a>.
    Besides <em><glacius:link page="music/projects/them-bones-solo">Them Bones</glacius:link></em>, 
    this is probably the only solo that I already knew before I decided to covered it. Although, 
    in this case, I had to do a lot more practicing to be able to play this in a
    non-embarrassing fashion. And I mostly succeeded.

    Since I like to double-track pretty much everything, there were a lot of tracks
    for this excerpt. Two rhythm guitars (doubled L+R), two lead guitars, 
    two acoustic guitars (doubled L+R), two clean guitars (doubled L+R), one fake
    strings keyboard track, one fake brass keyboard track (it sounds better than it
    sounds&#x2026;), bass and drums. I opted not to attempt the vocal line which
    screams "Whoa" for eight bars. All in all, it took a little more than the
    normal 4-6 hours I allot for these things, but I thought ending the year
    with a bang(er)<glacius:cite>Just as I 
    <glacius:link page="music/projects/robyn-call-your-girlfriend-transcription">started the 
    year</glacius:link> with a banger.</glacius:cite> would be fun.
