Overture 1928 - Guitar Tab


Author - Piotr Traczyk


	DREAM THEATER
	OVERTURE 1928
       METROPOLIS pt 2

Here's the tab to the Overture. I've added a new element, that ASCII tabs
have always (almost) lacked - rhythm indication. In case of the slow or
rhythm guitar parts the timing could be easily guessed just by listening to
the recording, when it came to playing some fast and tricky runs the tabs
were practically useless (uless you had a steady rhythm, say 16th notes).
You just knew to play a series of notes, 'fast'. If you want to practice
with a slower tempo, say with a metronome, you have no idea of how the notes
are spaced within a measure. You have to analyze the recording, which means
that you have to do the transcription again, yourself. Besides that, I think
it helps a lot to be aware of the actual rhythm.
 So the result is below, the tab is a little more crowded, but you now get
the whole picture. (at least the part I managed to make out :) The rhythm
indications are fairly straightforward, an explanation is at the end of
this file, along with the tab explanation. Enjoy, and tell me what you think!

As an overture, this song has a lot of parts from other songs on the album,
I indicated those connections which I noticed.

Tempo is around 112 BPM.
Bridge pickup, distortion.

  This is probably a seven-string guitar

Next comes the intro riff, D Lydian scale.

Some arpeggiated chords, let ring throughout. (Still distorted) The

This guitar part appears later in One Last Time and Strange Deja Vu
This section is later referred to as Rhy Fig. 1

At this point another distorted guitar enters playing a familiar melody,
the rhythm guitar just plays the power chords indicated.(B minor tonality)
The melody and chord progression are of course reminiscent of Metropolis
pt. 1 and appear later in Home.

returns in One Last Time (2:03), with some wild modifications, though.

Rhy Fig. 1 is repeated here, doubled with an acoustic guitar. After that,
the lead guitar returns with another melody (bridge pickup again). The
rhythm guitar plays again the power chords indicated. The chord
progression used here is the main progression in One Last Time and also
appears in Finally Free. (key of C# minor)

Here, the part leading directly into Strang Deja Vu begins. The same riff
is played in the 2nd verse. Tonality oscillates between G# and F Lydian.

  RHYTHM NOTATON:

Most of the symbols try to look like regular notes. Rests are indicated
with ^.
