This was originally done by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Metallica.

I don't have an orchestra behind me so I played all the instruments on guitar.. that's about 11 instruments.(except drums of course.. those are midi)

Anyways, thought I would share.

Video is WAY too dark :)

That's because I recorded it in the dark.. silly.

It wasn't exactly a live performance.. took about 4 hours and 50 tracks in my multi-track software. I didn't practice or learn this thing prior. I pulled out the music and recorded it as I learned it.. piecing it all together in the multitrack program.

For the drums, I found a midi file of the song.. (yeah,s those *.mid files).. extracted the drum track out of it and ran it through my jv-1010 hardware synth. The cymbal crashes are kind of loud but I didn't feel liking spending 2 hours going through and manually adjusting them.

I'm pretty happy with the way that it turned out. I usually don't aim for perfection, I just have fun doing it and leave it at that.

Thanks for listening!
