I first saw Big Wreck open for Dream Theater back in Atlanta in 1997 when I was a student at the Atlanta Institute of Music (and ironically the next time I would see them would be 20 years later on the 20th anniversary tour for In Loving Memory Of). I had no clue who they were but Ian was a monster and I was impressed to say the least. I rekindled my love for Big Wreck back when the Albatross album came out in 2012 and there was this song called A Million Days with this ridiculous solo! Ian Thornley is one of the most incredible players(and tragically underrated), he's got it all, technique, songwriting, oh and he can sing better than basically anyone haha. My girlfriend knows how much I love Big Wreck, but honestly i've never learned any of their music, so she challenged me this week to learn this solo so here it is! The first half of the video is me playing over the track(i'm louder), and the second half is just the isolated solo I recorded. I used @ProgressiveRocco 80s Modded Marshall patch(I tweaked it a bit) and my Suhr Modern direct to Logic with no post processing, so let me know what you think! Oh and if you don't know Big Wreck, go listen to them, they're incredible!
