Anyone that knows me is aware that I’ve been a Dream Theater fanatic since the first time I heard “Pull Me Under” in 1992. While the guitarist in me is most impressed by the the guitar god John Petrucci, I also appreciate the phenomenal skill and talent the other members (past and present) possess.
“The Silent Man” has easy to sing vocals since it doesn’t use James LaBrie’s wide vocal range, and it’s just such a beautiful song. Now, as a guitarist I can actually play this song quite well, but as a fairly lazy musician it is much easier to find a backing track on the Internet that somebody else has already created… so I did that instead.
These vocals were recorded with my Neumann TLM-103 mic.
