    Dream Theater tab books REDONE (because the old ones are inaccurate)

    Hello everyone, some of you may remember that I transcribed Distance Over Time last year and sent out Guitar Pro 7 and PDF files for free. Now I'm doing the same for all of Dream Theater's studio releases from the 90s. I decided to completely redo all of these albums because the old books all have errors and inaccuracies (some more frequently than others). Also because the isolated guitar tracks are available for these albums. Today I've released my transcription of A Change of Seasons (title track only), and will be releasing the rest of the albums chronologically in the coming weeks. I'm also planning short lesson videos for each song, here's the first one:

    Dream Theater - A Change of Seasons - How It's Played Episode 1

    Now you may be wondering, "why should I trust this guy's transcriptions?" I am a professional transcriber with several tab books to my name (I'll put links below). Also, I won JP's Match the Master contest in 2016: Meeting John Petrucci

    Links to my books:

    Exodus - Tempo of the Damned
    Exodus - Fabulous Disaster

    Go for it!! I've got all of the books so far and they are very poorly transcribed. Takes a very long time to find the proper fingerings and positions.

    Sad but true, DT tab books are full of mistakes, I always had to watch DT live videos in order to see john' s fingering. Keep the great work, Evan!

    I updated this lick because while I had the correct notes, I was actually using a more difficult fingering than the way JP plays it live. Somehow I had forgotten that this part is shown clearly on Live at Budokan - Instrumedley.

    I've updated my transcription, and if you'd like the free tab book, please email me at maytropolees@comcast.net or countuscany@gmail.com
